Until now, the NBA has managed not to alienate half their fans the way the NFL did under Kaepernick. Is that about to change?
Unlike the NFL, the other big sports have managed NOT to get sucked into this contentious protest-while-representing-your-team debacle.
That’s a good thing, obviously, if you’d rather not alienate half your fan base. So far, so good.
But not everyone has figured out WHY that’s a good thing. And now a first round draft pick is going out of his way to alienate the fans who will be paying his salary through ticket sales, TV ads, or merch.
Lonnie Walker (@lonniewalker_4) was just drafted by the San Antonio Spurs in the 1st round. At 19 he’s now a millionaire.
Yesterday he tweeted (now deleted) that he’ll “never celebrate 4th of July, know your history…”
Enjoy the millionaire lifestyle, compliments of America ????

Training your own fans to HATE you even before they’ve started to LIKE you isn’t a great strategy for self-promotion. One ABC affiliate caught the tweet before it came down:
Has Lonnie ever heard of this guy? Or is he not covered in the “Progressive” version of Black History?
Walker does know that San Antonio is in TEXAS, doesn’t he? Because Independence is kind of a big deal down there.
Good luck with that attitude. You’re gonna need it.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
