      To paraphrase Henry II: "Will no one rid of us this meddlesome replay?" Thanks to TC and Billy Jaffe for telling it like it is!!!

        There have been a lot of high-profile frauds unwittingly unmasked in his corner of the world recently.

        Not worth a lick of spit … come on down, frauds:

        * Lebron James
        * Gregg Popovich
        * Steve Kerr
        * Adam Silver
        The NBA really is a sad mess with this China business. Just how stupid is Lebron James? His IQ has to be astronomically lower than anyone could have ever imagined.

        The fact that you BC fans revel in the superiority of your team in an admittedly weak league leads me to believe you will be more sorely disappointed when the end comes than we will.

          Absolutely! A good while ago I used to get the sports package to watch the Western teams like Denver and Minnesota and he was terrific on those broadcasts before coming out to join the Bruins and getting involved in the Hockey East games. He's just really good at what he does.

            He has a $1 billion contract to promote Nike. Aside from the hundreds of millions he gets from promoting other merchandise in China. He is also starring in and executive producer on the Space Jam sequel, which will stand to gain a huge amount of money from a Chinese release. Still question his IQ?

              You really think hes struggling for cash? Hed be wildly rich without the money from China. I think for most people with any sort of moral compass spouting Chinese propaganda would be a bridge too far, no matter how much cash in on the table.

                Maybe not question his IQ but certainly his "woke" status. More than willing to call things like he seems them in the US but the rest of the woke crew like Steve Kerr are conveniently silent when it comes to an actual awful country/regime in China. That's called being a fraud.

                  These things:
                  1. Require putting a basketball through a hoop
                  2. Have nothing to do with intelligence.

                  But yea it's great he values his financial interests over the general idea of freedom of speech.

                  • Athletes (in general) should stick to sports & not get dragged in without full education. If one still feels strongly about an issue, run for office or support the cause offline / some other way. If you are going to be open about it; be aware that on sensitive issues you are bound to offend one side or another.

                    Far as Propaganda .. it runs in all media in all countries, (including ours).
                    Lets not kid ourselves.

                      "How much cash is enough?"

                      You asked how stupid he was and said he had a low IQ. He's actually behaving like a very smart capitalist. I disagree with the content of what he said, but why he said it makes perfect sense.

                        It's not so much that he's "stupid" - clearly he knows how to count, and understands what behavior will contribute to his personal bottom line. But what he is, is a flaming not-even-a-close-call hypocrite.

                        He - and the others I listed earlier - chooses to lecture us on the issues he sees with things in the US, and how we supposedly fall short of our lofty ideals. Yet, when he's actually given an opportunity to truly make a huge impact in the name of freedom where that baseline value is truly under siege … well, nope, not going to wade in, but yeah, I'll kick the guy on our side who dares to give a token of support to that cause, right in the nuts. On top of that, then he accuses THAT guy of being "uneducated".

                        For those keeping score out there, here's what courage and principle look like:

                        Muhammad Ali - conscientious objector, nearly jailed, lost untold millions and peak years of his career. 100
                        Lebron James - more "woke" than you, 'til China threatens his further enrichment, bows in submission. -100

                        I used to be a big Popovich fan, but now he's another pretender. Kerr is mini-Pop, no surprise there.

                          PC seems to have learned from what Quinnipiac used to when they got most of their home games on NESN back in the day. Another marketing coup would involved GETTING PEOPLE TO SHOW UP SO THE COFFIN ISN'T MOSTLY EMPTY but that's a different rant.

                                You might try "unsubscribing" to the email solicitations, getting "NoRobo" or another blocking service for your phone and cancelling your subscription after the game is over. Certainly you must cancel it at the end of the season or you'll be charged the monthly fee through seasons where you have no use for the service.
