What’s up with these celebrities and athletes weighing in on police shootings and buying the narrative that police are out killing black people just because they’re black? For example, LeBron James has been very vocal about the Black Lives Matter movement. This year, James did not win the Most Valuable Player award, and he gave a thoughtful response, saying voters may have embraced a “narrative” instead of “really watching the game of basketball.” Why didn’t he use this type of analysis to study police interactions with black people?
Jason Whitlock: “This has been the intent from Black Lives Matter from the very beginning. We’re seeing it reshape right before our eyes the hostility toward Christianity is overtaking the sports world and Kurt Beathard is paying the price… It’s a calculated, not an organic deal. This has been underway for years… You’ve got to usher out God to usher in immorality.”
Speak For Yourself’s Marcellus Wiley explained why it’s a bad idea for the NBA to paint Black Lives Matter on the court or to put the message on jerseys, and he totally nailed it. (Via RIGHT SCOOP)
With the NBA in a tough spot over their condemnation of Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey’s tweet supporting Hong Kong protests, Larry looks into coaches Brian Kerr, Greg Popovich, and player Lebron James and how they are quick to criticize President Trump and comment on other political issues in the US, but are reluctant to criticize China for any of its human rights abuses. Larry thinks one sports commentator knows the reason why.
After Lebron James lambasted Daryl Morey for supporting Hong Kong protesters, Larry decides to look into one of the NBA’s biggest issues: fatherless households. He cites a number of well-known figures about the issue that he says faces not only NBA players but America’s black community in general.
Larry Elder does a great job (in two segments) of showing the incredible hypocrisy of the NBA, China’s Orwellian fruition of it’s use of technology to keeps it’s communist regime in power. A must listen to excoriation of the issue with professional sports. Here is the CNN article Larry was reading from: “CHINA’S CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF“.

A “prequel” to the flashback… and it deals with the influences of the Nation of Islam (a racist cult) on Kaepernick. DAILY CALLER noted some time ago the “swagger” of his social media:
- “31 of his last 42 posts have strong social justice connotations, often featuring quotes from radical Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X, Black Panthers founder Huey Newton and cop killer Assata Shakur,”
Here is some background to the “Islam” that Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf was part of via DANIEL PIPES:

Joseph Ashby, mamma’s babies daddy (e.g., Titus’s dad), has a very cute YouTube account for young Titus. However, one sports writer does mention This Pathetic Baby’s Terrible Shooting Form, in which he astutely points out (tongue-in-cheek of course):
This baby’s shooting form is god-awful. He just cranks the ball behind his head and flings an ugly, line drive of a shot toward the basket. (Nobody oohed and aahed when Manute Bol hit a three.) That… might fly in your play room, Junior, but it won’t get you very far when there’s a hand in your face.

The Knicks just finished pitching LeBron James. Their main selling point: You could make a billion dollars playing in New York. You can’t earn anything close to that anywhere else.
To make the case, they commissioned a study from marketing consultant Interbrand (See the powerpoint below–hit “full screen” to view.) that says LeBron could earn close to $1 billion over his lifetime in salary and endorsements if he makes Madison Square Garden his permanent home–their high-end estimate sees him earning as much as $2 billion. That outshines the estimated $700 million he’d likely earn in Cleveland, the $690 million in Chicago, and $600 million in Miami.
It’s a crafty attack that goes right after their rivals’ best case for nabbing LeBron: that his brand is so internationally recognizable, where he plays has little influence on his overall earnings. In fact, the same study claims that any generic free agent could see his lifetime earnings jump 30% by signing with the Knicks.
To come up with the numbers for the Knicks, Interbrand says it ran through 50,000 computer models of a potential LeBron career, using more than 200 variables like individual performance, fan demographics and championships. The report is light on the details of its methodology, but comes to this conclusion: LeBron has a 50% chance of earning at least $1 billion in New York. In Cleveland and Chicago the odds fall to 1%. The study put a 0% chance of LeBron making $1 billion playing for Miami….
