LeBron’s run as The King of the NBA is over
Colin couldn’t understand why Kyrie Irving would want to leave LeBron James and guaranteed trips to The Finals…until he heard James addressing the trade for the first during the Cavs’ media day, yesterday.
During his comments, LeBron went into full passive aggressive mode and repeatedly referred to Irving as ‘kid.’ It was the ugliest of LeBron, and something others have been forced to tolerate because he has run the NBA for the last decade.
Irving is an All-Star, an NBA champion who hit the game winner in a Game 7. Irving bolted because he demands and deserves more.
LeBron is still the best player in the NBA, and the league’s elder statesman, but his run as ‘The King’ of the league is over. It’s the Warriors league now. Kyrie knows that, so intead of continuing to put up with it, he split. He wants to be the man, not to be treated like a kid.
Judging others’ patriotism isn’t patriotic
Jerry Jones joined his team and took a knee before the national anthem last night, and continued the raging controversy ignited over the weekend by President Trump’s tweets criticizing NFL players for protesting.
Colin doesn’t think patriotism is defined by what people do during the anthem, or before it, or by who shows the most devotion to the flag. Patriotism comes in many forms, and often it’s displayed in selfless acts that go unnoticed. Colin would never kneel for the anthem, but he doesn’t claim a moral high ground by judging those who do.
In these highly political times, many people are judging the patriotism of others. That’s the least patriotic thing one can do.
