On the same day the National Football League decided to obfuscate the real reason its players were kneeling during the national anthem, Milwaukee police released bodycam footage that showed exactly why players have been kneeling during the national anthem. Police continue to abuse their power and use excessive force…
Below, because I know you’re curious, are the five worst places to be elbowed during a basketball game (in reverse order):
Kylia Carter, mother of former Duke basketball star Wendell Carter Jr., didn’t mince words during an emotional speech to the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics, in which she compared the current NCAA basketball system to slavery and prison.
“Don’t be a prisoner of the moment!” said the person on the internet, who is 36 years old, about the reaction to LeBron James’ theatrics against the Toronto Raptors on Saturday. And against the Raptors the game before that. And against the Raptors the game before that. And against the Indiana Pacers the series before…
Here are the facts.
LeBron James is a freak of nature. Sure, Giannis Antetokounmpo’s (I’m not ashamed to admit I had to look up how to spell his name, gave up trying to get it right, and copied and pasted it) nickname is the Freak, but LeBron James? Bruh.
The Dallas Mavericks have launched an independent investigation after a report by Sports Illustrated on Tuesday alleged that the NBA franchise maintained a “corrosive workplace culture” where women were routinely sexually harassed by male co-workers.

Those who follow the NBA know that you’d be wise to take any Adrian Wojnarowski reportage on anything LeBron-related with a grain of salt. For reasons that remain unclear, Wojnarowski doesn’t miss opportunities to craft stories about LeBron James in ways that are less than flattering.
The Cleveland Cavaliers-vs.-Golden State Warriors basketball game on Martin Luther King Jr. Day was aight (spoiler alert: Warriors won ... again), but the real show was 5-year-old Tavaris Jones’ dancing during halftime. The young Detroit native kept the crowd entertained when LeBron James wasn’t busy
It didn’t take much convincing for me to agree with my dad’s plan—that it was in my best interest to leave Sterrett Classical Academy in the city and transfer to St. Bartholomew (a private Catholic school in the suburbs with a stellar academic and athletic reputation) and repeat the sixth grade when making the switch.
When now-former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee to bring attention to injustice, he may have lost his career simply by speaking out.
Whether you like LaVar Ball or hate him, at the end of the day, the proof is in the pudding: His son Lonzo Ball can play.

Move over, Kris Kringle; there is a new Santa in town. And he’s black.
The NBA has super-strict rules when it comes to the national anthem.
