    These players have a contract and job to do. They just want to keep their money without doing the work

    Why do these NBA playeres that want to make political protests now accept money from the communist dictatorship in China?

    I get what Kyrie and Dwight are saying. The momentum is stronger now and if they don’t ride this wave it might just fade.

    These people talking about ideology that separate the country as a whole of America. If you keep saying you are an African American(clearly you are a mix racial American and no African would agree with you) This is the problem with racial issues. You can’t dictate others for the freedom of speech, because An Irish person will still have an Irish view on topic of things, An Italian will still think he is an Italian, A English will still be a British way, A Scottish is Scottish, A German is thinking German way, A Nigerian thinking is different than a South African thinking, A Jamaican is different than Bahamian, Angola is different than Sudan, Japanese are different than Korean and so on….. You can’t change the way other people think about their roots from different culture and languages. If you keep talking about skin colour lighter white or darker black, it basically separate everyone and they will be thinking more about their roots of nationality than talking about being an American!!! Stop dividing Americans!!!

    When I hear these players get together and talk about starting their own black owned league then I’ll take them seriously or the top black high school players going to HBCU’s.

    Keep the politics off the program… I’d rather listen to a proper debate rather than quick mentions of events and a lack of depth in the discussion

    A lot less people care about whether or not these leagues come back than ESPN likes to think. After all, this video is over 6 hours old, and doesn’t have 6,000 views? Reality – a LOT of people have moved on and don’t miss the league as much as you want to think…..I wouldn’t be surprised if ratings are even lower than the start of the season. In fact, I’d be shocked if they aren’t.

    I like how Max totally missed the point that SAS made of how if NBA cancelled thousands and thousands will not have a job which will ripple down and cause more harm. And of course, Molly hops on and takes the conversation completely off topic. Well done.

    Scrap it, resuming this season feels very forced.
