#1 I checked, because I had no idea who charger is talking about. For those as ignorant about professional sports as I, it’s LeBron James. His jersey says basketball, so that’s probably definitive.

#3 This post is written in such shorthand and jargon that I really do not know what it's about.

Poster: everyone doesn't follow the same milieu as you, please explain things when talking to outsiders. An outsider is anyone that's not in your tiny group.

#4 The best way to educate the NBA's SJW's about life in communist China is to send a few of these SJW's as our representatives to China to go through a Chinese or a N Korean re-education camp.
Then these SJW representatives can come back after a few years of going though these Chinese communist re-education camps and compare them to how the left is indoctrinating all of our school children in American public schools.
Then let these NBA SJW's explain to the American people what the difference is in the indoctrination they received while they were coursing through the Chinese re-education camps to what public school children are exposed to by the left if there is any difference.
Which SJW's from the NBA or from the NFL would you like to nominate to be our US representatives in these re-education camps.
I nominate the QB from SF who did not want to stand in honor of those who gave their lives to keep our country free.
The QB who no NFL team wants to take because he has become so toxic.
With the new QB in SF the 49ers are now 5 and 0.
Of course this SJW QB is profiting from a lucrative Nike endorsement promoting anti-American shoes made by slave laborers in China.
I hope this hypocrisy was made clear.

Between LeBron and Kerr you’ve got some pretty well-known social justice sports guys whose social justice begins in America but ends at Communist China’s doorstep. Or put another way — willing to give Americans a hard time but not any Chinese.

#7 An outsider is anyone that's not in your tiny group.

Bron Bron is notorious, an industry leader; an $8 Billion dollar industry in USA tickets and tv deals alone is no tiny thing, never mind its growing popularity in Europe and China, then add on merchandising and we are talking real money.

You may not follow and I may not care, but it is interesting how far into the tank these goldfish are.

Laogai, pretty clever actually.

#10 I have to wonder how many urban kids that look up to Lebron are behind his position. I'd say it's probably pretty high which make me sad. He's an influencer and the influencers in our country seem to hate that country, the results from this kind of thing are never good.

#11 We need to bring back the Peace Corps and get some of these kids a good solid look at the world.

#12 Modest proposal: view pro athletes like the dumb, absurdly well-paid entertainers they are and tell them to shut the f--- up and sing play.

No virtue signaling / BLM BS, no posturing about domestic politics, and no expectation that they will have anything meaningful to say, one way or the other, about Chinese or any other politics.

Just play ball. Entertain us. When you're done, hit the showers, dress, leave by the back entrance and go home.

#13 Tell all the entertainers to shut the f*ck up. Better yet, replace them all with virtual characters.

#14 Drug using high school dropout who made it big time playing ball and without the charade of college route.

More fantastic than space aliens disguised as popular cartoon characters in an interplanetary basketball match of doom.

His tale is a cautionary one, billed as heroic. The heroes are the people who convinced an unmotivated dullard that to have any chance at all playing ball for a living, he must at least have the appearances of finishing high school.

He was the face of the NBA's transition from sports as entertainment to entertainment as sports, or as I call it the soccerization of American sports, and as such received the bigger than life advertising and promotion such as with pro-wrestling.

What I found irksome is that he was constantly being billed as a hero, but is so obviously a heel. Always somebody else's fault, every time he was fouled it was bigger than shit, and oh boy if a white boy fouled him it was farkwad flagrant white man beating a brother with a stick silly.

Which leads us to here, where his is being a heel, and it is so obvious, yet being advertised as a hero. "Everyone calm down, myself and the NBA just had a very tough week and we need a warm bath and candles moment. Maybe what was said could have waited until after we returned from our Chinese promotion and product inspection tee boo hoo."

That isn't a champ, that's a chump. That's a chump in a suit more expensive than my education, stylin' in a way I wouldn't put on my dog as a Halloween joke.

I'm glad his income and business ventures will make sure his grandkids live the walled neighborhood life even if they do nothing. 'Merica cuz no other nation would his life had taken place like it has. Maybe he needs to take a trip to Africa, or the local shoe factory, and see how the communists treat the people outside of 6 star hotels and armed escorts.

#16 Ming James.

(for those who don't know, one of his handles is King James)

Personally, I think Jane Fonda wore it better.
