.. but , for God ‘ s sake , over the typefont ?!?! …

.. James and several other NBA players led a protest during warmups the other evening , just before their various scheduled games . They were wearing t – shirts that were making a public statement . These t – shirts had the expression … ” I Can’t Breathe , ” after the statement made by Eric Garner in his arrest over the summer , which resulted in in his eventual death ..

.. here is a photo of LeBron ‘ s t – shirt …

.. but , for God ‘ s sake , to protest over the typefont that the players used ? That is ridiculous …

.. I am a huge basketball fanatic . I am also a lifelong Cleveland Cavaliers fan . yea , that means that I and others have subject to a great deal of ridicule as well as suffering , down through the years . No , I am not wild about LeBron ‘ s protest . He is ” smarter than the average bear , ” so he knows what he is doing …

.. but , bitching over the typefont ? Get real , folks . The guys wanted their statement to be seen . They are not dummies . They knew that they were going to be criticized by other people [including me] for their protest . But , to minimize their protest in that way ? No , that is wrong …
