Proud of Doc Rivers
« on: August 26, 2020, 08:57:39 AM »
Doc Rivers represents the best of the Marquette family.  I'm proud of him and the other current and past players and coaches who are standing up for the real American Dream of equality and justice.  They refuse to "shut up and dribble." https://twitter.com/i/status/1298475639863992321

This board is hot garbage.  I used to come here for MU hoops news/opinion.  Like everything else in 2020, it's been destroyed by an active vocal minority (5000+ posters who love to hear themselves talk) who look at everything through a political lens.  I'm done.  Deleting my account.  Good riddance.

Irony.

I think it stems from the term "Special snowflake", meaning unique, delicate and mentally fragile.  Falls under the "participation prize" umbrella.  IE "Well, aren't you a special snowflake!" It is used to describe someone w weak emotional fortitude, someone who needs constant validation and positive reinforcement but is in actuality a giant vagina.

While I agree this is not the place for this topic, you can do what most do and ignore the posts.

This has been a great site for MU basketball but I would never come here for COVID or political news or insight.

I don't care what athletes have to say about political issues and I don't care what CBS News has to say about sports.

I like Doc and he is entitled to his opinions but it carries as much weight as my next door neighbor (who I also like).

What part of "he is entitled to his opinions" = "Shut up and dribble"?

I find it offensive to give more credibility to a celebrity and multi-millionaire that other regular citizens of this country. This happens way to frequently with both Democrats and Republicans.

I don't know if this is "credible," but when someone famous gets behind something, it certainly carries more weight than if your next door neighbor does.

IMO, Doc is a little bit more than a celebrity. He is a leader of a highly visible organization. And the way he handled the Clippers during the whole Donald Stirling incident kind of elevated him into a rare position regarding race relations within the NBA. And he has always handled that moral authority with grace, intelligence, and compassion. Just my 2 cents.

Fair enough. I didn't intend to shut down this thread. I respect all opinions. IMHO, sports people and other celebrities are given way to much credibility in regards to many issues. But I'm just some random poster looking for MU info so it really doesn't matter.

This.

Some “celebrities” (like some salesmen, plumbers, teachers, accountants, etc.) are interesting people with informed opinions. I consider Doc in this group. So (agree or disagree) when he speaks I pay attention. But no closer than I do to lots of other folks I know who are not “famous”.

Like it or not, celebrities have a pulpit.    Doc used his.    Many celebrities and athletes have been condemned for NOT using their fame to make a statement.     Damned if you do, damned if you don't.    And if that is the case, be damned for something you believe to be right.    It is easier to take criticism with a clear conscience.

If I had celebrity I would no doubt be using it to promote my thoughts including Marquette basketball.

Most of us have MU degrees and feel that education give credence to our opinions. Doc Rivers falls into this group as well. He also has a platform for which he can display his voice. I can understand those that call for Kanye or Kyrie or Lebron "stay in their lane" (Whether or not I agree) but when that extends to educated individuals, that literally have the same education as those who would have him hush up. I cannot figure that logic out.

They are 100% entitled to their opinion. Just remember they are basketball coaches first and foremost.

Remember, Kerr made the error of stating the NBA had no rule against not standing for the anthem but the NFL did. 100% wrong.

Is he a bad guy, No. But he and other celebrities and sports icons are not the best source of information.

I think our president the perfect example of this.

Not that it matters, but I think Trump is an ass.
