The NBA has decided to postpone – and possibly end – the 2020 playoffs in protest of the shooting of Jacob Blake, a career criminal.
The NBA’s ratings are down 45% from last year, so this should be a boom to their business.
Get woke, go broke.
The NBA season is on the brink of ending early after a meeting Wednesday involving players, coaches, and referees that David Aldridge of The Athletic described as ending “ugly.”
They are literally ending their season for a career criminal with an extensive arrest record.
The remaining teams in the Disney World bubble held a meeting after all six NBA teams scheduled to play on Wednesday boycotted games to protest the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The boycotts began when the Milwaukee Bucks did not take the floor for Game 5 of their first-round series against the Orlando Magic.
Blake’s record in Wisconsin includes charges of Domestic Abuse (three counts), Sexual Assault, Criminal Trespass, and Disorderly Conduct. He has also has a history of assaulting police, and had an active warrant at the time he was shot.
Shams Charania of The Athletic first reported that both the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers voted to boycott the remainder of the season. According to Charania, LeBron James left the meeting early and was followed by the remainder of the Lakers and the Clippers.
Oh no, and I was so looking forward to not watching the NBA for another year! Imagine boycotting your own season to support a thug. If the owners had any balls, they’d fine the players for sitting out.
