The San Francisco Chronicle tells us we shouldn’t expect NBA commissioner Adam Silver to enact any kind of gag order on league players when it comes to political statements.
Silver, addressing the media before the Saturday night All-Star festivities, was asked his reaction to recent political statements by LeBron James and Kevin Durant.
“Let me begin by saying I’m incredibly proud of our players for using the platform they have as players in the NBA and on social media, to speak out on issues that are important to them,” Silver said.
What Silver is really saying to his players is go ahead, hate America’s president, your jobs will be safe.
Enjoy the game sports fans.
