The NBA finals is another round of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors battling for the championship. But the parties and celebrations were getting notoriety from even those who do not play or are interested in basketball for an interesting reason. Something that had to do with the hats they were wearing!
The commemorative cap that all the players were wearing featured the team logo with a general “NBA FINALS” wording on the center of it. However, a circular piece that covered the bottom of the B part of NBA made it look like it said NRA. As if it were representing the National Rifle Association. Something that got many liberals on social media really upset.
The Conservative Tribune reported:
“The NBA is rife with loud-mouthed liberals — particularly Cavaliers star LeBron James — who’s better known for left-leaning clothing and accessories like preachy sneakers and virtue-signaling safety pins than Second Amendment-supporter hats. Meanwhile, Warriors coach Steve Kerr is an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump. The mainstream media also gives him a platform to blast the NRA routinely, and often with the introductory note that Kerr’s father was killed by “gun violence.”
(The odd thing about that is that Kerr’s father was assassinated by Hezbollah killers while serving as president of American University in Beirut in 1984, according to USA Today. Only a hideously slanted mainstream media could blame that on “gun violence.” And besides, has anyone heard Steve Kerr denouncing radical Muslims lately?) But while liberals were moaning, normal people were getting a kick out of the hats. He’s not the only one who likes the look.
According to Sporting News, the Warriors are the overwhelming favorite to defeat the Cavaliers when they repeat their 2017 championship series (Game 1 tips off Thursday). But no matter who comes out on top, this hat’s already a winner.”

James has been an outspoken liberal in the past throwing support behind progressive causes, vocally praising former President Obama, and outright denouncing President Trump during his time in office. Which is why it is not surprising that his fans and supporters are upset at the potential appearance of him supporting the NRA. However, that is what makes it so funny.
PS Public reported:
“LeBron James has an outspoken history of being an adversary of President Trump. In an interview with ESPN, LeBron was quoted as saying, “The number one job in America … is someone who doesn’t understand the people, and really don’t give a f— about the people,” James said. ”It’s not even a surprise when he says something. It’s like, laughable. It’s laughable and it’s scary.”
But why the hate LeBron? It appears that James has been drinking the liberal kool-aid. He has always been a huge Obama fan and supporter. When the former president turned 56 last year, Lebron sent his love over social media. Yesterday, in game three of the Eastern Conference Finals, against the Boston Celtics. LeBron appears to snub a fan wearing a Trump, “Make America Great Again hat.” The man who was clearly excited that James was about to hand him a game towel got the snub of his life.
Clevland Cavaliers star LeBron James is one of the most outspoken anti-Trumpers in the National Basketball League, but is he so anti-Trump that he would snub a fan for wearing a MAGA cap? A new video has people asking precisely that. The video in question was taken during Game 3 against the Boston Celtics when James was discarding one of his used towels. Many front row fans are thrilled to get a player’s cast off for their sports collection. But as James neared the sidelines, it appears that he purposefully bypassed a fan who was wearing one of President Trump’s famous, big red “Make America Great Again” hats, the Big Lead reported.
It appears that James looked in the ball cap-wearing man’s direction only to turn away from him and throw the towel to someone else. Of course, we can’t know for sure if the three-time NBA champ actually saw the MAGA hat. Then again, he was only a few feet away, making it a bit hard to believe he missed it especially given his dislike for President Trump.
Finally, one wonders if that basketball fan were wearing a “hope and change” hat, a Hillary cap, or a “Sí se puede!” hat, would James have so blatantly overlooked him? It is easy to doubt he would. It never seems to end. Have you ever wondered what it was that has angered so many left-leaners? It can’t be that Trump has had affairs, former President Bill Clinton had an affair with a young intern in the Oval Office. So what is it? Could it be that he didn’t sell his election out to the highest bidder, that he didn’t sell out to the deep state?
He has run his presidency like no one else and they hate him for it. But why LeBron? Why would he hate the president? The left has said that Trump is a racist, but in 1998 Jesse Jackson praised Trump for his lifetime of service for African Americans.”
The fact remains that if James knew what he was doing off the court then he would stay out of the political arena. Because of celebrities, entertainers, and athletes never up in the right spot when they insert their opinions on a public stage regarding these types of issues. At least for the sake of his fans, because a lot of conservative sports watchers do not want to know athletes political opinions and they will stop watching as a result. Those lost ratings are just what these athletes are going to have to deal with if they continued doing what they are doing.

Patriots Former Tight End Martellus Bennett Just Made Sickening Allegation About Trump
He can’t be serious with these claims.
The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Breitbart.
Former Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett went on the attack Wednesday, accusing President Trump of “attacking black culture” with his criticism of NFL player protests during the national anthem.
Speaking to Bleacher Report, the former NFL player slammed Trump for his criticism of the protests and claimed that Trump’s attacks are just a way to tear down black role models.
“It’s the easiest way for him to attack the culture of black people,” the Super Bowl 51 champion said. “He sees the black athlete as someone that black people look up to. So he thinks you can attack black culture by attacking black NFL players.”
Bennett also implied that he thinks Trump’s voters are racially motivated. “Also, attacking black players helps him with his base,” he said.
Or, he pontificated, “maybe there’s no rhyme or reason. Maybe he’s just an asshole.”
Bennett has made his feelings about Trump known before. Last year he noted that he would not visit the Trump White House to celebrate his 2016 Super Bowl win, as a member of the New England Patriots.
He also took to Twitter to slam singer Kanye West for saying nice things about Trump. “So Kanye didn’t take the time to vote. And now he holding on to Trump’s coattail like Peter Pettigrew to Lord Voldemort. Kanye Pettigrew,” Bennett tweeted (then deleted) in December of 2016.
NFL Team Announces They Will Go Beyond Fines When Penalizing Players Who Kneel For Anthem
They’re not gonna like this!!
At least one NFL team has come to the conclusion that their money-losing race-baiting nonsense kneelers who ruin entertainment by abusing their platform to protest during work hours could be punished by suspending the players who engage in such pathetic behavior. I’m talking about the players who take a knee to protest and the Miami Dolphins are about to start punishing people for not having “Proper Anthem Conduct!” After a horrid 6-10 season last year, the Dolphins probably thought it was the least they could to do bring back fans who boycotted the NFL after a wave of activist millionaires started taking a knee. The only time “taking a knee” ever meant anything was when Tonya Harding allegedly had someone take Nancy Kerrigan’s knee back in 1994.
The Dolphins new policy suggests that any player who protests on the field during the national anthem might face a suspension of up to four games. That’s quite a few games lost for being a social justice warrior. Hopefully, the players who face this suspension are also losing their paycheck for those weeks.
This is quite an improvement for the NFL as teams with protesting players should always suspend them. It’s not their personal time, nor their platform to protest on. These players are at work and protesting during work hours should always be punishable by the boss. If any of us protested at work, then we would probably be disciplined too, especially if it made our customers turn their backs. Why should it be any different for football players?
“Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the national anthem could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued this week.
The “Proper Anthem Conduct” section is just one sentence in a nine-page discipline document provided to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the policy who insisted on anonymity because the document is not public. It classifies anthem protests under a large list of “conduct detrimental to the club,” all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine or both.
Miami’s anthem policy comes after the NFL decided in May that teams would be fined if players didn’t stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner” while on the field. The league left it up to teams on how to punish players. None of the team policies have been made public.
The NFL rule forbids players from sitting or taking a knee if they are on the field or sidelines during the national anthem, but allows them to stay in the locker room if they wish. The new league rules were challenged this month in a grievance by the players union.”
The ‘take a knee’ nonsense dates back to when Colin Kaepernick was protesting and we all see how that turned out. He’s no longer in the league and at this point, there’s no chance for him to come back. He keeps getting older and likely deteriorating. See what social justice did to him? It cost him his career. What does he do now? Hopefully, he saved some of the money he made while playing, that way he can survive, but he could have been earning millions more for him to spend, donate, or invest. If he’s broke, then oh well. Serves him right for dissing the American flag like that.
When people abuse their platform in entertainment, then fans are often turned off by it. We watch sports, television programs, and movies as a form of entertainment and escapism. We want to be immersed into a story, drama, and something that’s simply there to keep us entertained for an hour or two. As soon as people start protesting during sports, then some people are like “no thanks” and immediately shut it down.
People don’t like protesters and they don’t like their entertainment ruined. What happens when you combine the two? It’s like mixing bleach and ammonia. It’s a very bad idea and it could kill their careers.
We have a few months until the regular season begins for the NFL. That means a lot of teams have plenty of time to get their punishments ready for the disrespectful players.
