What has the race thing he is bringing up to do with finishing the season? How about you read this...
The players would get shafted afterwards, if the season is cancelled. Do your regular joes have the same luxury that Kyrie demands? They have to do their jobs without being in a bubble and getting daily tested.
I'm not sure if he understands what would happen afterwards. I think this time the owners would have the upper hand, if the CBA deal gets ripped up and the players would be in shambles. Especially in times like these, getting paid like usual could help funding BLM or other movements.
I wonder if you would have the same reaction, if Kyrie was still playing for the Celtics.
Kyrie isn't the only player saying that they should hit the pause button, but go off.
And NBA players don't have to fund anything. The movement for Black equality and to end police brutality doesn't rely on their money...this is such a disingenuous take from someone who only cares about watching basketball and nothing else.
"The race thing", huh? Way to tell on yourself dude.
Yeah as a foreigner in germany I totally outed myself lol. Especially since I had to deal with everydays racissm my whole life here.
I've actually been watching basketball since last week, as the german basketball league pulled off what the NBA plans to do, on a lower scale in Munich (that's a german city). Players who didn't want to play and stay in the united states got their contracts waived and most likely received their salaries while they were at home and because of that, the teams were allowed to sign 2 replacement players.
Germany also handled COVID-19 better than the rest of the EU and the US.
The NBA won't even test the staff at the proposed bubble, which further opens up further risk.
The german football league has also started a couple weeks ago and many more league are have started this week. And wasn't he talking about, the NBA returning for 3 months in one place for entertainment purposes would look poorly. I mean what does he think the NBA and other leagues are supposed to be if not entertainment?
I mean if Kyrie thinks the NBA is trying to undermine the BLM movement and keep black people down, he could flat out retire and not accept their dirty money, couldn't he? He earned more than enough and could use the time in his hand to educate people on police brutality, racism and maybe the earth shape.
I bet most americans would kill right now, to be able to work in a bubble while getting tested everyday.
The entire world has its eyes on racism at the moment and for this country with its attention span to finally come to grips with its racist present and history is a watershed moment that hasn't happened since the 1960s. The country isn't distracted by sports, work, movies, new episodes of TV. This is on their timeline when it comes to social media, not some silent protest or interview they could easily pass through with that same player's highlight.
