No one should hold it against him, just like no one should hold anyone kneeeling against them. Free country, do what you want.
NO ANTHEMS, NO FLAGS.
why are they even part of sporting events in the first place? this isn't wartime like it was when they first started doing it
Yeah, the anthem before games is completely unnecessary. I've thought this for a long time. And yes, I was one of those kids that refused to stand for the pledge of allegiance in school. Got in trouble for it more than a few times, which is ridiculous.
Former Trail Blazer Meyers Leonard explains why he didn’t kneel with Heat teammates for anthem

His reasons are dumb.
He is dumb.
Still can stand during the anthem, but the guy is phony.
I heard some liberal media personality ask how many jobs a conservative media personality had had where it was required for him to stand up during the national anthem at the beginning of every work day or recite the pledge of allegiance. The conservative said that that wasn't the point. I thought it was a pretty good point.
I like that Haslem and Meyers had a conversation about it all and ended up seeing and valuing each others’ perspective. The world needs more of that.
Really don't get the Meyers hate. Dude might be a really annoying basketball player and a bro sometimes, but he's genuinely a good guy who has overcome a lot in his life.
I don't hate Meyers but he did get a little long winded in his explanation on standing and as he has shown in the past, when he gets long winded it doesn't usually bode well for the guy but I think he is well intended and at the same time just kind of inarticulate and/or not too bright.
Meyers has the IQ of a lamp. I don’t have a problem with the guy standing, but the reasons he gave... jfc.
Overcoming a lot of things doesn't mean everyone is going to love you or even like you, or that they're supposed to. One of my former co-workers over came a lot of things. Addiction, really poor parenting (his mother basically treated him like shit because he reminded her of his father, who left her when he was young)..yet he was still a dumbass.
Next event I'll probably just stay seated and check my IG.
No, there’s absolutely nothing phony about Meyers Leonard. What you see is what you get.
that sums it up well.
Yeah, I know. Still dumb. He's making it all about him when it should not be about him at all. Supporting the movement by kneeling in solidarity is a simple thing to do, and not doing it because of some ridiculous imagined disrespect to the military is just stupid.
