I like this player speaking his heart

Somebody make it make sense! As Americans it seems that the people who are agreeing with him really want more of our rights took away from us.. When this guy quits his NBA job I'll take him a little more serious because the NBA still has ties to China and every other communist nation that he is rambling on about but he continues to cash that check.
