    Can any of those guys pass up a moment that grand to spew their bullshit politics? I'd be willing to bet a month's salary that at least several players, probably led by Carmelo, will try to emulate John Carlos and Tommy Smith from Mexico City in 1968. What say you?

    Well, I guess that I'd have to give a fuck first of all, which I don't.

    Don't worry, if it happens, it will be next week's "Lochte" story. You'll hear about it constantly...

    Is that 1968's "woke" pose?

    Yah, its from the '68 Olympics.

    Is "woke" the same as their "Black power" salute at the time?

    Oh ok.

    Is there a pro-BLM symbol or gesture should they decide to do something?

    Almost 50 years and things have not gotten any better. Either that or some people just don't learn.

    I didn't see what they did. But I'd be surprised if they all could pass up a chance to promote what is essentially a terrorist organization on worldwide TV and the talking heads in the media would it it up with a spoon. "Scary black men"...more like scary ideology.

    If they do, they should be denied re-entry into the US

    That's refreshing actually. Since when does Reggie obey anything?
