Coalition of NBA Players Seeks to push ‘Justice in Policing Act’

A coalition of NBA players and executives is now pushing the US Congress to adopt the radical new ‘Justice in Policing Act.’

As The Daily Wire reports:

A coalition of top NBA players and executives are throwing their clout behind the Democrat-backed George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.

The group, called the National Basketball Social Justice Coalition (NBSJC), released a statement Tuesday, which marked one year since the death of George Floyd, backing the police reform bill passed in a nearly party-line vote in March. Two Democrats, Reps. Jared Golden (ME) and Ron Kind (WI), joined Republicans in voting against the legislation.

The NBSJC statement says:

Today, as this painful anniversary approaches, we have an opportunity to honor the memory of Mr. Floyd and others who have been victims of police brutality in this country by passing the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. Systemic problems demand systemic solutions. And, because police actions are governed by a diverse array of state laws and local policies, the Floyd Act takes unprecedented strides towards consistency—reforming at a federal level the practices that failed its namesake…

Of course, the statement didn’t mention the massive rise in crime that has effected many minority communities in the wake of the anti-police riots of the past year.

I used to be a diehard pro, college sports fan. Now I don’t watch any pro team. You get paid to entertain. You want to get involved in politics, become a candidate. I can’t discuss politics on my job, no one is supposed to but these people use their workplace as a soapbox. Wrong. I hope more fans stop watching, don’t buy tickets and the pro organizations lose more money.

who cares about the NBA? Not I. In almost every case when a person, black or white, refuses to follow directions from a police officer they put their life in jeopardy. Follow directions and respect police and you will live.

Resisting arrest, running, holding a gun or other weapon and a few others, can get you shot by a policieman, or woman. It’s really simple, don’t fight, don’t run, cooperate, don’t be stupid. But I guess that is a difficult for some people.

I used to be a sports junkie. I had Patriots season tickets and would go to as many Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics game as I could get tickets to. If I wasn’t at the game I was glued to the TV. Once they all went “woke” and embraced BLM, that was it for me. I cut the cord and dropped cable and haven’t watched or attended a game in a year. I thought I’d miss it, but it’s actually been easy. If these spoiled, pampered athletes think there’s a better country on earth to raise their families, don’t they owe it to themselves and the people they love to take their 10s of millions of dollars and move there?! I don’t see any of them talking with their feet holding a one-way ticket. They kiss China’s azz and gladly take millions from their slave labor, but let’s focus on how racist it is in the United States.

People who pay $200 (or shoplift) basketball shoes promoted by the stars of the sport. Definitely ‘followers’ who want to be told what to think and do

Who would really care what these narrow-minded, bigoted racist, spoiled brat, overpriced players think? Personally, since this nation is so bad I suggest they move to another they feel will be better. Perhaps Red China, Russia, Iran, or perhaps Sub-Sahara Africa. Rest assured the Africans would not put up with their nonsense for a minute. Selfish, ignorant, obtuse, unappreciated, an affront to this nation and to God Almighty, all of these describe these terrible and evil players.

Its no wonder no one is watching basketball. My family no longer watch or attend pro or college games, and starting this year no little league. We’ve told our friends not to cry on our shoulders about anti police and Antifa/BLM matters if they continue to watch sports, and when they visit us no sports talk and no sports clothes. And when we visit the same or we will leave — period. The owners of sports team need to suffer so they will stop this BS. I understand the NBA and NFL suffered billion dollar loses last year and the NBA is on its way to big loses this year — great. Trade the NBA players to the CCP league since they like China so much. Then maybe they’ll see how the Chinese treat black people and other ethnic minorities in their country!

You know that every one of them have armed body guards, but they don’t think we should be able to defend ourselves against criminals.

You have encourage your friends and family to quit supporting these fools. Every time they watch a game on TV or in person, every time they buy sports clothes and other item they are telling them they support their actions. Boycotting them is the only way to let them know how you feel. Otherwise they continue to give you the finger as the draw their millions. They don’t care about you, and in most cases don’t understand how asinine their “protests” are; proven more blacks are killed by blacks in one month than in one year by police, and more whites are killed by police each year than blacks. And in almost every case when police kill a black he recently committed a crime. Do a little research and you will see this true. If I was a police officer in the area where they live I would have the address of the player and refuse to go there if they call for help, if I was ordered to go I would find a way to get there very slowly. Their actions show they don’t like police so why hurry to protect them.

As far as I’m concerned, defund,abolish,do away with and stop watching THE NBA. TOO many of these rich talented players think because they are great players they can say and do whatever they want to. Obviously no common sense was learned while developing their skills on court. Go ahead and believe that defunding the police will solve the policing problem in the USA but it won’t. Gun control and laws don’t work,does it CHICAGO? Until people learn that drug dealers,murderers, and all forms of loser criminals don’t deserve a break,we will have this ongoing lunatic fringe like leBron and friends running off at the mouth doing more harm than good.

NASCAR put the Toyota in … Nemo went out …. NBA “took a knee” during the National Anthem … No more basketball for Nemo … Like wise all “sports” that the “spoiled brats” and their ADVERTIZERS participate in are “out” of Nemo’s life …. Just refuse to buy the advertisement & products that supports and pays them…

Is anyone really surprised that the NBA ratings are down 50% over the past two years? My question is when will the players salaries start to take a dive? No way can the league withstand such a decline in ratings (sales) and not have an enorous impact on players earnings? When paychecks are cut in half, will the players wake up in the real sense and say “what the f are we doing to ourselves?”

The NBA sucks. I quit watching it over 20 years ago. It’s not even entertaining anymore. Why do you think that their ratings are at an all-time low? When you have as your lead spokesperson lebrainless james, you have a bunch of ignorant morons who think they are scholars and policymakers…NOT! In the words of Mike Ditka, they all have a combined IQ of a grapefruit, and not to mention most of them are all racist as hell with lebrainless james leading the pack.

These gentlemen are actually making the very best argument for re-segregation imaginable. If they don’t like the police (or the “po-po” as they are referred to in the highly literate ‘hood) I think it would be best to insist they live by themselves. They can then continue to inflict the sort of “justice” we have all come to know and admire on themselves without further damage to the white community.

The NBA talks about racial equality. From a league that has 90%black players even though they say blacks are 13% of population.And for all those who say that is because they are better then white players ,why isn’t that defense used when a company wants to hire more whites because they are better at that job?

Why the hell would anyone watch the wife beaters, sex abusers, murders, druggies and thugs play a game or listen to their sick opinions is beyond me No one should attend a nba game until they learn who pays their salary and what a great country they live in. They are a bunch of ignorant thugs who care nothing of others or their country. Show them who has the power of this country it is we the people. Not china who pays these idiots to bow down to them. Don’t go to a nba game for 6 months or watch them on television and the price of a ticket will be 20 dollars and a beer will be 2 dollars. It is we the people that should matter not a bunch of prima donnas who half can’t read on an 9th grade level

they really show how ignorant they are! Most never finished college if they attended, and if they attended they did to get into pro basketball not to get a a degree. To get into pro ball in the country they hate. Send them to play in the European leagues and see how long their political ideas last. My family gave up all pro and college sports last year. On our smart TVs we have blocked them along with CNN and other leftists news. No one can view them in our home. We canceled the cancel culture!
