Never said Nads. As you well know, I should not even be here. I love this country and all the opportunities it afforded me, hey?

Love everything about it - including your president and all of your athletes - or leave it, nu?

Oh, and we must have missed the thread you started when Steve Kerr and Coach K ripped Gunmerica. 

I guess their “tone” didn’t bother you.

either shut up and dribble all or speak out and be true to ones principles

RoQQet, please post a list of everything you’ve bought in the last 3 years, both for yourself and your business, to confirm that you haven’t supported Chinese oppression.

Either that or shut up and drlll.

I’ve hated LBJ since he pushed the Civil Rights Act through.  Now I can’t discriminate against baby boomers.  Sad!

Brother Rico:

I always thought I liked Lyndon Johnson because he looked at George Wallace and said, "why are you F**king your President?" Or because he named his dog Little Beagle Johnson ("LBJ") and picked the dog up by his ears. Or because his press secretary, George Reedy, taught at Marquette!

I know he escalated the Vietnam War. Or he made Napalm a household name. But geez, if he made it impossible to discriminate against Baby Boomers, then I hope he's in heaven next door to St. Peter!

Now I know why I really liked him!  ;D

I’m not sure the NBA is pretending to care. I have no idea. But yeah it is certainly harder to take principled stands when it affects your power or your income. Countless examples of that in history.

Does anyone know why the NBA so frequently gets singled out for its relationship with China when it's one of just thousands of American companies that do business with China, the overwhelming number of which also take stands on social issues?

Yep. Including by everybody commenting in this thread.

Most of us might not get "power and income" from excusing the atrocities around the world, but we sure do love saving money by buying cheap crap manufactured with slave labor in nations that oppress their own people.

I couldn't even hazard a guess. But I'm sure the OP also had many issues with his favorite president marketing an entire line of clothing made with slave labor in a country that oppresses its people.

That's different.   Lebron might actually be a billionaire

  the point is 82, i criticize china vociferously and confidently.  i don't make 10's of millions of $$ from china.  i have no voice like the NBA or la brum or bill gates to make any difference and you know that.  you pose a question to me that you know the answer to but what it tells me is that you are ok with china hating on LGBTQ and the slavery and human rights abuses they hold over the uyghurs and their populace...congratulations biggot

Your non-answer tells me you are ok buying product from China and supporting politicians that do business with China.

China is the scapegoat used by many because they don’t like to discuss the injustice in our country that still exists. 

It’s incredibly effective because you can avoid the discussion by deflecting and somehow claiming the moral high ground.  Perhaps your concern with what’s happening in China is better manifested helping end it than yelling about Lebron James on a message board.  My guess is, you don’t really care.  What you care about is, the messenger.  That says more about you than Lebron

"Biggot" ... that's too precious!

I should go easy on you because you've had a tough day, roQQet, what with 5 of your Proud Boys heroes getting indicted for seditious conspiracy in connection with your god's deadly 1/6/21 coup attempt against America. With deep sympathy, I say, "Stand back and stand by."

You can ease your mind if you stop pretending you give 2 shytes about the Uyghurs or LGBTQ people.

So you're upset that LeBron James and the NBA won't take the principled stand against China that you refuse to take yourself?
Huh.

The radio silence from Scoopers lack of outcry over 45’s inability to speak out against Russia and Putin is hysterically hypocritical.

If you've never been to Dealey Plaza and the 6th Floor Museum, be prepared to be moved. I'm old enough to remember November 22. The 4 hours in the Museum and Plaza had the hair on the back of my neck standing up the entire time.
