LOL. Hey man, I may not be any good at this modding thing. I was trying to keep the thread about the potential boycott with the shotting as part of the conversation while not letting it become a flame war about the details of the shooting itself or a political discussion about BLM, or someting like that. It appears that instead, I took over the thread.

So what is the justice Boston is demanding? I just don't understand. We are just coming back to the simple fact, that public judgment was done based on a media report, that perhaps didn't cover all the aspects or present all known events and now this public demands justice based on this judgement and not based on a judgement that would result from a proper legal process. In my opinion, that is not a responsible action from players and teams involved.Yes, it's not clear to me what the people are asking this DA for. Do they want the DA to charge people with crimes before an investigation is done? Do they want the Wisconsin DOJ to denounce the police in advance of an investigation? Doing so would bias any case against police officers and could be cause for a mistrial. These people need to think strategically a bit before they do things like this.

Weekday afternoon games have certainly hurt, but the first weekend of the NBA Playoffs was no ratings bonanza either.
Compared to ABC’s first playoff game last year, Clippers-Warriors Game 1 on a Saturday night, ratings fell 23% (from 3.0) and viewership 21% (from 4.83M). The Lakers’ win ranks as ABC’s least-watched playoff opener in five years (2015 Pelicans-Warriors: 3.49M)
As for the other L.A. series, Sunday’s Clippers-Mavericks Game 4 averaged a 2.1 and 3.31 million on ABC — down 45% in ratings and 47% in viewership from Warriors-Clippers last year (3.8, 6.29M)
Friday’s Game 3 had a 1.5 and 2.27 million on TNT, down a tick and 10% respectively from last year (Blazers-Thunder: 1.6, 2.52M).
Out East, Sunday’s clinching Celtics-Sixers Game 4 averaged a 1.5 and 2.23 million — down 38% and 42% respectively from last year (Celtics-Pacers: 2.4, 3.84M), and ABC’s lowest rated and least-watched playoff game ever.
Rounding out the recent action, TNT averaged a 1.2 and 1.87 million for Nuggets-Jazz Game 4 Sunday night, down 48% in ratings and 50% in viewership from Blazers-Thunder last year (2.3, 3.74M).
Raptors-Nets Game 4 drew a 0.9 and 1.45 million on TNT earlier Sunday night, down 44% and 46% respectively from Raptors-Magic last year (1.6, 2.69M). Game 3 Friday afternoon averaged a 0.17 and 245,000 on NBA TV.
Pacers-Heat Game 3 scored a 1.1 and 1.61 million on TNT Saturday — down 21% in ratings and 25% in viewership from Sixers-Nets last year (1.4, 2.13M) — with Monday evening’s clinching Game 4 at 1.73 million. Bucks-Magic Game 3 had a 0.8 and 1.16 million on TNT Saturday, with Monday’s Game 4 matinee clocking in at just 289,000 on NBA TV.
Finally, Rockets-Thunder Game 3 averaged a 1.1 and 1.76 million on ESPN Saturday — down 39% and 37% respectively from Nuggets-Spurs last year (1.8, 2.78M) — followed by a Monday afternoon Game 4 at 1.19 million on TNT.
Sorry if I offended anyone. I don’t apologize for the content though. I had no idea about this troll cave thingy. I post on phone and don’t see things clearly. Been posting here since the move and we always talked this stuff in the threads in front page at least during HK fiasco we did. Had no idea we had another sub board.
Anyways, I’m done with NBA for good. I will always hold posters here close to my heart and its been the best and smartest fans on any NBA board ever. I consider most here my friend. But I can’t take sports mixing politics any longer and am going to do my part to not give them any views or clicks. I may check in time to time to see how you guys are doing on a personal level but have no reason to come and talk sports since I will not know anything.
Networks should have told teams and league “if you don’t play you have to pay for our losses”. Lots of behind the scenes people losing money. Sports sites. Twitter personalities. Shows. Its something players don’t think about.
If players care so much why don’t they all have equal pay? Why not divide up pay equally?
Anyways, wanted to clear and say I’m sorry for posting in this thread. Anyone ever getting to OKC send me a PM and we can meet for laughs and drinks. My treat. I’m a 20 year Navy vet and we take care of friends so PM me. But be warned, I won’t come here often since I am quitting BB so may not get to it right away.
Good luck in your lives.
God Bless America!!

In the 50s and 60s, civil rights protests had a specific purpose, a stated agenda, were sustained, and non violent (even when violence was directed at the protestors). It was an enormous struggle, but did lead to progress, including the civil rights legislation supported by MLK, passed by Congress, and signed by LBJ.
I agree that changes need to happen so black families aren't fearful of letting their children go out at night without a discussion on how to avoid getting pulled over by police or worse just because of their race. And I can understand frustration that leads to flash point riot situation in a particular city or town, but generalized riots and violence in response is not an answer, nor are vague boycotts that do not specify what the change agenda looks like.
We can't have change until we define what change is.
