Hopefully this is a wake up call for the NBA.

The vast majority of us basketball fans don't give a **** about LeBron. No longer need to make sure he gets into the finals.

Great basketball player, giant pussy, and horrible person overall.


More basketball, less horrible acting.

Last years whole BLM theme really turned off a lot of fans. NBA saw that and stopped it this season.

yeah, hate to say it, but that turned a lot of fans off. didn't bother me, but i get how it was shoved down their throats, whereas most people use sports to escape politics and ****.
