Nike Sides With NFL Players In Protest Dispute

Nike Sides With NFL Players In Protest Dispute”

While that may be true, we can't deny that LeBron James is also powerful, and plenty of others were inspired by what he said.

"It was surprising that with everything going on in the world that he would take the time to single out Steph's White House invite", Barnes said. "In sports, it's so awesome what sports can do for everyone no matter what shape or size or race or ethnicity or whatever".

He said he would not let one person "ever use sport as platform to divide us".

The White House press secretary defended Trump's decision to wade into the issue, arguing that far from being a distraction, it's "always appropriate" for the President to defend the flag, the national anthem and those who protect the U.S. One reporter pointed out that the president had tweeted praise at NASCAR and noted that it tends to have a more white demographic compared to the African American athletes Trump had repeatedly attacked all weekend.

More importantly, James said Trump needs to understand how kids are looking up to the president for "guidance, leadership and words of encouragement".

"I think it's really unfortunate", Barkley said during a phone interview with NBA TV.

Championship sports teams visiting the President at the White House goes back to the days of Andrew Johnson.

Mr Trump later said the kneeling protests have "nothing to do with race, but Mr James argued otherwise".

Washington Redskins tight end Niles Paul and linebacker Ryan Anderson (52) and Washington Redskins linebacker Chris Carter kneel during the national anthem, 24-09-2017. "National Football League must respect this".

Regardless of social media even more players and owners took part in anthem protests.

"It's disappointing times. It's nearly 2018 and you'd hope stuff like that wouldn't be in the news anymore", said Dirk Nowitzki, who's entering his 20th season with the franchise. "It's about equality and having the option and freedom to speak about things they feel are unjust". He brings another playmaker to the team who can get guys involved, and make plays, and also just has a great basketball mind. We know this is the greatest country in the world.
