NBA Playoffs in Jeopardy as LeBron James and LA Teams Vote to End Season

Most of the professional sporting world went dark on Wednesday in wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake and subsequent violence that has followed in Kenosha, Wisconsin. 

The boycott began in the NBA when the Milwaukee Bucks, who’s home state is embroiled in chaos, chose not to take the court in Game 5 of their playoff series against the Orlando Magic.  The other four teams scheduled to play sat out in solidarity.  

The MLB was next to shut down their Wednesday games, led by the Milwaukee Brewers announcement to postpone.  Pitcher Brent Suter, the player’s representative from the team, explained to reporters that not participating was “a collective Reds/Brewers decision not to play tonight to focus on our community hurting and the issues that are bigger than baseball.” 

The WNBA postponed all three of the day’s games and Major League Soccer shut down five. To the dismay of hockey players, the NHL was the only league to maintain their scheduled meet-ups.  “NHL is always last to the party on these topics,” Minnesota Wild’s Matt Dumba criticized.  

NBA players took to social media to express their frustrations with the latest racial injustice.

LeBron James’ voice rang the loudest: “F**K THIS MAN!!! WE DEMAND CHANGE.” 

During an intense NBA meeting Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers announced they were in favor of opting out of the playoffs. During the informal vote, the rest of the teams decided to finish the season.  James walked out, and every player from the Lakers and the Clippers followed, leaving analysts to speculate if the postseason would continue.  

Thursday’s games are currently postponed, but a new report claims the season will go on. The playoffs may resume as early as Friday.

End the season, nobody wants to watch these pucks. Not only are the players pucks, I personally will not watch or attend anything that displays the BLM terrorist logo. So much for the NBA, NFL, and much of the MLB.

Let them end the season. I doubt many people were watching them anyway. These people are so out of touch with the average American that it is astounding.
They don’t even wait to see what actually happened. When they do come back they will find much of their audience has moved on.

When they start protesting the Black children being murdered every week in Chicago by other Blacks then, and only then, I will care. If they don’t think ALL black lives matter and not just the ones they chose then, NO Black lives really matter to them.

This isn’t hard to figure out. The NBA is hemorrhaging money, and those teams that are not doing well like lebrons will gladly stop the season to save face. There is hardly any NBA organization left. They bowed to the 2%, told the 98% to take a hike, and they are. Why organizations/companies commit financial suicide is amazing.

They can chuck the season for all I care. Next year and thereafter too. I do not like politics mixed with athletic events. I did not watch NBA games much in recent seasons but now I have absolutely no reason to watch any NBA game. Take their politics somewhere else along with their rocket high salaries.

Live gate and concessions is their major source of revenue at least %50. How they gonna afford there multimillion salaries? My Mother always said don’t bite the hand that feeds you. They all biting the hand that feeds them greedy! We can live without them America was fine with no sports. Don’t really need sports anymore anyway.

If the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB any any others didn’t eve play another game for the rest of my life I will not have missed a single thing. Them and their Hollywood counterparts bow to a very few thinking that they will appease them and somehow make everything OK. They do this all the while spitting in the face of the rest of the country, you know the ones that actually have a job and actually buy tickets to their games and movies and who support the sponsors who pay to put their games on TV. They would rather kiss the butts of less than 1% of America then to tell them to go to hell and stand with the 99% who are actually paying their salary. I am sure that by not buying the products that the companies who air commercials to pay for these games I will not make a very big dent in their profit margin, but at least I know that I am not contributing to these jerk’s pay checks.

L.James is no genius, this whining overpaid,privileged,multmillionaire, has been whining for yrs, like he has been held back, from making them millions. Grow up, crybaby, u just bankrupt, the NBA, and were all going to watch, it collapse, then u will have something to cry about, u are all overpaid to play a dam game, yet piss and moan about everything, that was given u, by the American people.

You can take all these ghetto blacks out of the ghetto, but, you can’t take the ghetto out of them. They are who they are by choice & don’t deserve anything more than the rest of society. I’m dumbfounded that 98% of people are truly ignorant. You can have all the money in this world, but, if it isn’t handled properly, it will DEFINITELY disappear. It simply takes money to make money. One can’t keep paying these ghetto trash shit heads, while they decide to tell the rest of the world what’s going to happen. This won’t keep lasting. It has to end soon & it will. Have you read about 1,000,000 people who are preparing for a wipe out revolution. This was told to the city council just a week ago. Beware & be watching, because, Americans are sick & disgusted with this 3rd world behavior. See it on line….

Why don’t these overgrown, overpaid ‘money-makers’ get on the court or field, play their silly games, and DONATE THEIR PAYCHECKS TO SOMETHING THAT WILL ACTUALLY DO SOME GOOD FOR ‘WHATEVER CAUSE’ THEY STAND FOR? Personally I don’t give a hoot if they ever play their games again (and loose all that money for those overpaid jocks) but do want all the violence, looting and destruction of businesses and people’s lives stopped – allowing our Country to get back to improving life for ALL American citizens and yes, IF proven that a cop, or anyone else, broke the law, let our Justice System do what it’s designed to do!!! JMHO

I say screw them. Close the whole damn season. We pay to see sports, not spoiled millionaires with perceived complaints pouting and posing. They have no relationship to the man on the street. Their incomes are far beyond their white (fans/oppressors). They, like the Hollywood air head Liberals, are paid to perform, nothing else. If they want to go into politics, go at it. You have ceased to be entertaining! Go home

Nobody cares if the NBA ever plays another game as long as they keep supporting the marxist BLM. Lebron James can just go to China along with NBA and play their games over there.

He defended himself against the trash ghetto, who we saw attack him. What you defend is criminals, who always have a criminal record a mile long. Must be just like you. Blacks of criminals flock together & defend crime. When will you ever learn?? If you live a life of crime, you will die by crime. There is NO OTHER RACE, only BLACKS who attempt to make angels out of black criminals, put hallos on their heads, burn down cities, loot, riot, harm innocent people, all for the sake of so called defending the blacks. When will you defend the millions of black babies who you murder all the time? Then you go to the streets to defend the black criminals. You are very selective whom you decide to murder, all the while screaming systematic racism. You fools don’t even know the definition of the term. Act & behave like normal human beings & you won’t have to cry fake racism all the time. Insanity is doing the same thing, over & over & expecting to get different results.

What no basketball, hooray!!!. Why complain, do something like interjecting the idea of staying within the law. If you make a spectacle of yourself you will be in harms way. Everyone that was shot was doing something wrong in the first place. You high dollar so call athletes should use your money and person to mentor these individuals on how to stay out of problem and do something constructive and to the benefit of others. Self indulgences on drugs, vice, and stealing is not legal. Help yourself, not hinder yourself.
