Good for Durant. I hope more and more athletes speak up about this.

Btw, this will have a Far, Far less impact on people hating Durant than him going to GSW did. If anything it will get many more people to like him.

Also, I have absolutely no respect for our current president, and I don't know how anyone can at this point.

You also have no idea what free markets are, and frankly I doubt you have ever even picked up a book about economics.

If a white athlete had said this about President Obama, you would have called it disrespectful, and likely would have called that person a racist.

The hypocrisy on this board is absolutely painful.



Once again, jumping to ignorant conclusions and generalizations (all wrong of course) instead of addressing the topic at hand.

Particularly painful when one gets to make up the other half of the hypocrisy.

Here's what actually happened

Wow how do you not respect the president of the united states? What a low life. Disagree on political position is ok, but don't disrespect the president and the country

Way to get half the country to hate you Durant. Hope trump doesn't invite them

You couldn't find a poll where half the people in the country liked Trump even it was conducted by Ivanka in a low cut top.
are you referring to the same polls brought to us by the same publications that said Hillary has a 99% chance of winning? http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/sam-wang-princeton-election-consortium-poll-hillary-clinton-donald-trump-victory-a7399671.html

No.. the two are not related at all. What a weird response.

This President is completely unworthy of respect.  That opinion, fact really, should be fairly obvious by now.

I've never seen this Country so divided, not since all the togetherness we experienced under Obama.

Don't forget , our own superhero Tom Brady and a large number of his teammates also skipped their white house visit back in April, when there are not nearly as many reasons to hate Trump:

I've always supported any athlete's decision not to meet with their employee. I'm fine with it. It's a waste of everyone's time anyway

Good for KD. For what it's worth, I don't respect Trump either.

Yes, I am the ignorant one.

You have stated that free markets require the people to not be free, yet i am the ignorant one.

The only reason you are able to type this out on a computer right now, is because of the free market.

Neither of us can prove whether those generalizations are true, and there is no "issue at hand".

I disagreed with President Obama on an extensive list of things, but you wouldn't hear that I didn't respect him, yet it is all vogue to disrespect President Trump.

But of course, as always, " because he's different".

The hypocrisy is terrible.

Where did I say anything at all about free markets?

(clue: I didnt!)

Like I said, ignorant, off topic generalizations.

Not in this thread, and now that I think about it, I think I have you confused with that hwangji fellow.

They have kicked me off of the NCE board, but they still let threads like these show, so when I got the chance to answer for things I have read, but couldn't respond to, I jumped.

I do apologize for that, that was pretty terrible of me.

speak up about what? Durant claims trump ruined race relations. How so? There's no specifics.  Its another guy brainwashed by CNN telling him trump is racist without any proof whatsoever


The President proved it himself several times lately. He didnt need CNN or anyone else to do that. If you can't see that, then I feel sad for you.
you want to take down statues of washington? How about taking down websites that mention robert e lee. What's the difference

No matter how hard people are currently trying to make the Charlottesville rally about statues, it was not, except as a pretext.



This is what it was about. This is what the President chose to defend and equivocate about. The mealymouthed nonsense about all the invisible good people marching with Nazis and KKK members was just another pretext.
