NBA’s’ Mark Cuban Says He Doesn’t Care About China’s Human Rights Abuses

Despite that China is one of the biggest abusers of human rights in the world,the NBA’s Mark Cuban says he’s “OK doing business with China.”



Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban claimed to condemn human rights abuses wherever they occur. Still, despite that China is one of the biggest abusers of human rights in the world, Cuban is “OK doing business with China.”

Cuban made his proclamation on a podcast with former Fox News host Megyn Kelly on Monday where he said he stands against human right abuses, even those in China, The Hill reported.

Kelly asked why he and the NBA pretend to stand for human rights, but then seem to ignore the vast abuses perpetrated by their business partner, China.

“I personally put a priority on domestic issues. I’m against human rights violations around the world,” Cuban said, attempting to deflect from the question.

“Including the ones in China?” Kelly replied.

Cuban continued to try to deflect, saying, “China is not the only country with human rights violations.”

But Kelly pressed him on whether he condemns the abuses perpetrated by the Chinese.

“Yes, including China. Any human rights violations anywhere are wrong,” Cuban finally admitted. But Cuban still tried to steer the conversation away from his four billion-dollar business partner by bringing up Turkey and Africa.

However, Kelly was not done pressing. “Why would the NBA take $500 million dollars-plus from a country that is engaging in ethnic cleansing?” she asked.

“So basically, you’re saying nobody should do business with China ever?” Cuban interjected.

“Why won’t you just answer my question?” Kelly pointedly asked.

“Because they are a customer,” he exclaimed. “They are a customer of ours, and guess what, Megyn? I’m OK with doing business with China. And so, we have to pick our battles. I wish we could solve all the world’s problems. But we can’t.”

During the interview, Cuban also waved off any claims that the 2020 NBA season had dismal TV ratings because viewers are sick and tired of the left-wing politics. Instead, Cuban said the league did not properly promote the season, especially the NBA Finals between the L.A. Lakers and the Miami Heat.

“I don’t think it has anything to do with politics. I just think we don’t have the match-up and the storylines, and we didn’t do a good job promoting it,” Cuban explained.

Disgraceful! Troy Aikman And Joe Buck BUSTED Mocking The U.S. Military On Hot Mic




Disgraceful! Troy Aikman And Joe Buck BUSTED Mocking The U.S. Military On Hot Mic

Fox Sports’ top NFL broadcast team Troy Aikman and Joe Buck mocked military flyovers before Sunday’s Packers-Buccaneers broadcast, calling them a wasteful exercise that a Kamala/Biden ticket wouldn’t do.

TROY AIKMAN: That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.
BUCK: That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!
AIKMAN: That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner.

Mike Tyson Shocks Britain Acting Drunk in Tuesday Interview

Mike Tyson looked like he was drunk or on drugs when he went on the air with Britain’s biggest morning show, ‘Good Morning Britain.’



On Tuesday, Mike Tyson looked like he was drunk or on drugs when he went on the air with Britain’s biggest morning show, Good Morning Britain. But he has an excuse.

Tyson explained his bizarre, mumbling interview with GMB, saying he was just super tired.

The 54-year-old boxing legend appeared on Britain’s top morning show on Tuesday morning and put in a strange performance causing some to wonder if he was on drugs or had been drinking before the cameras lit up.

Tyson was appearing on the show to hype his upcoming November bout with fellow boxing legend Roy Jones, Jr.

But during the segment, Tyson mumbled, slurred words, looked off-camera in distraction, and at one point even seemed ready to doze off.

The odd interview had folks on both sides of the Atlantic wondering just what the heck was going on with Iron Mike.

Not long after the interview, the champion jumped to his Twitter account to explain to GMB hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that he was so exhausted that he could barely keep his attention on the interview.

“Hey mate @piersmorgan @GMB @susannareid100 and UK,” Tyson wrote to the Brits. “I tried to stay up late for interview but fell asleep and like a lion I’m hard to wake once asleep. Training hard and going to bed early. I had no monitor so I couldn’t see you guys and forgot to look into camera.”

Morgan quickly replied, “No problem, Champ. We could see you were a bit weary! It was very late in LA. Appreciate this message as some viewers were concerned.”

England is eight hours ahead of America’s Pacific Standard Time and GMB airs starting at six am in the UK, which is 10 pm L.A. time.

NBA Finals Ratings Crash and Burn, Worst Numbers in League History

The ratings for the NBA’s 2020 finals crashed and burned last week and fell to its lowest viewership numbers in history.



The ratings for the NBA’s 2020 finals crashed and burned last week and fell to its lowest viewership numbers in the history of the NBA’s TV broadcasts.

Despite the matchup between two of the league’s biggest stars (LeBron James and Anthony Davis), Game 1 of the Finals on Wednesday was a huge ratings disappointment for the NBA.

Game 1 averaged only a 4.1 rating and 7.41 million viewers on ABC, “comfortably the lowest rated and least-watched NBA Finals game on record (dates back to 1988),” Sports Media Watch reported.

It was so bad that Fox’s idiotic fake “reality” series, The Masked Singer, almost overtook the NBA with a posted 6.932 million viewers.

Wednesday’s game sank below the previous record holder, the 2003 Game 2 NBA finals between the New Jersey Nets and the San Antonio Spurs which earned a rating of 5.2 and had 8.06 million viewers.

The ratings for this year’s game rang in at a whopping 48 percent lower than last year’s Game 1 of the finals. It was also down 59 percent from 2018’s Game 1.

Most of the rest of the NBA’s post coronavirus season has also suffered heavily with very bad ratings.

Of course, this all comes as the NBA pushes its Black Lives Matter terror agenda to the hilt, with BLM signs on the sideline, BLM messages on jerseys, and all social media saturated with the racist, anti-American agenda.

Are the ratings, then, just desserts?

Maybe so.

Sports Fans Sick of the Leftism: Favorability Rating for Sports Plummets

A Gallup poll finds that the favorability rating for sports has crashed a whopping thirty points in only a year with the advent of the ultra-woke era of sports.



A Gallup poll finds that the favorability rating for sports has crashed a whopping thirty points in only a year with the advent of the ultra-woke era of sports.

Gallup released its latest polling result on Tuesday revealing a major warning sign to the sports industry.

Overall, the number of people who have a favorable view of the sports industry has plummeted from plus twenty last year to minus ten this year, a fall of 30 percentage points.

While it is probably not a surprise that the numbers fell the most among respondents who identified as Republicans, it also bottomed out among independents. Those who called themselves Republicans went from plus eleven last year to minus 35 in the latest survey. That is a massive drop of 46 points. However, independents also fell out of love with sports going from plus 26 last year to minus ten. That is a 36-point drop.

That is a massive drop for independents, and that is something that should make the sports industry sit up and take notice. It is easy for the woke industry to dismiss the drop among members of the GOP and chalk it up to supposedly expected “racism,” but if independents have lost all respect for the leagues, that says something about how far overboard they have gone.

Gallup also found its results on sports alarming.

“Sports has been acutely affected by the twin events steering news and culture in 2020: the pandemic and the renewed movement for racial justice,” Gallup wrote in its summary. “The sports industry’s relationship with fans has been disrupted by the need to shrink its seasons and schedules and play to empty venues as a means of keeping fans and players safe. At the same time, the greater social and political activism of players and, in some cases now, coaching staffs and entire leagues appears to have turned off Americans who disagree with their messages or the way they express them. The net effect at this point has been negative for the industry’s image.”

People are already sick and tired of the in-your-face wokeness, and we have not even seen the debut of college football with the Big 12 warning fans that it intends to slam viewers with repeated “social justice” messages during its upcoming games.

Thursday evening will see the debut of the NFL’s 2020 season, as well, and all manner of protests and displays for Black Lives Matter is planned.

The NFL’s ratings have crashed, too. Football has suffered a double-digit drop in ratings for its pitiably woke season opener.

Finally, NBA ratings are also down 20% during the playoffs. And a poll found that 38% of fans are not watching the NBA because it’s “too political.”

NFL’s Black Lives Matter-Soaked Thursday Night Football Suffers Ratings Crash



Football came back on Thursday night with a Black Lives Matter-soaked wokefest. The fans, though, apparently didn’t come back because the TV ratings crashed big time.

On Thursday, the Kansas City Chiefs faced the Houston Texans in Arrowhead stadium in Kansas City. It was dripping with Black Lives Matter activism, anti-cop garbage, and other protesting.

And fans ignored the show in droves according to the ratings.

As Breitbart Sports reported:

According to Deadline Hollywood, “…the Kansas City Chiefs pummeled the Houston Texans 34-20, and the ratings were down — a lot. In early numbers, the primetime NBC game scored a 5.2 among adults 18-49 and 16.4 million viewers between 8-11 p.m. ET.

“Now, those numbers for the 8:25-11:30 p.m. ET game will certainly be adjusted upward later, but right now they mark a 16.1% drop over the spectacle of the September 5, 2019 season opener in the advertiser-rich demographic. In an America and a NFL still adjusting to the new normal of live sports in the era of COVID-19, last night’s game also fell 16.1% in total sets of eyeballs from last year’s fast affiliate results.”

Thursday night’s numbers gave the NFL a nasty blow and a ten-year low in ratings.

“On a field bordered with the words “End Racism” and fans booing as players from both teams linked arms before kickoff in a sign of solidarity with those fighting social injustice, the ratings and viewership decline could be an ominous sign for a league and the networks,” Deadline reports. “The stellar numbers of last year’s opener, the Green Bay Packers’ grinding 10-3 victory over the Chicago Bears, kicked off a tightly run season that seemingly had reversed years of weakening numbers. Now it could be a case of déjà vu all over again.”

If the NFL thought that people were hungering for the return of football, Thursday must have been a heavy blow.

The fact is, most Americans don’t want to see millionaire athletes telling them they are racists and that their country is evil.

They just want them to shut up and play ball.

Few care what super rich pro athletes have to say about anything.

NBA, MLB End Games in Protest Over Shooting of Jacob Blake

The NBA and MLB both decided to stop playing their games this week in “protest” over the shooting of Wisconsin man Jacob Blake.



The NBA and MLB both decided to stop playing their games this week in “protest” over the shooting of Wisconsin man Jacob Blake.

The TV ratings for both the NBA and Pro Baseball have been in the dumper since coming back from the COVID hysteria break, anyway, so maybe no one will even notice?

How stopping a basketball game or a baseball game is a meaningful “protest” for a police action in Wisconsin, though, is anybody’s guess.

Sooner or later these dope athletes will have to come to the realization that nobody cares what they think about anything and all their “activism” is meaningless palaver.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Bucks refused to come out of their locker room to play game five of their series with the Orlando Magic because of the Blake incident in Kenosha over the weekend.

The Magic were seen on the court throwing some practice shots, but according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Bucks stayed in their locker room and said they would not come out.

“We’re tired of the killings, and the injustice,” Bucks player George Hill told The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears on Wednesday.

An hour later, baseball also put an end to their games.

The feeling is reportedly spreading far and wide. According to a report at Sports Illustrated, some of the loudest, most politically woke players are beginning to realize that athletes don’t have the power to “change” things as they imagined.

For instance, Toronto Raptors player Fred VanVleet wondered if all the wearing of Black Lives Matter t-shirts was doing anything at all to affect change.

“It’s just starting to feel like everything we’re doing is just going through the motions. Nothing’s changing.,” VanVleet said on Monday, according to SI.

“At what point do we not have to speak about it anymore?” VanVleet added. “Are we going to hold everybody accountable, or we’re just going to put the spotlight on Black people, or Black athletes, or entertainers and say, ‘What are you doing? What are you contributing to your community? What are you putting on the line?”

“Do we actually give a fuck about what’s going on, or is it just cool to wear ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the backdrop, or wear a T-shirt? Like, what does that really mean? Is it really doing anything,” the Raptors guard exclaimed. “[A]t the end of the day, if we’re going to sit here and talk about making change, then at some point we’re going to have to put our nuts on the line and actually put something up to lose, rather than just money or visibility. I’m just over the media aspect of it. It’s sensationalized, we talk about it every day, that’s all we see, but it just feels like a big pacifier to me.”

Other players have also been questioning their effectiveness. Boston Celtics players Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown had also voiced frustration that everything athletes are doing has been pointless and expressed support for boycotting the games.

Smart recently insisted that “Right now, our focus shouldn’t be on basketball,” And Brown exclaimed that he wants to “protest.”

Pro Soccer Player Calls Americans ‘Disgusting’ for Chanting USA as He Knelt for Anthem

An anti-American pro soccer player was disgusted when Americans chanted “USA, USA” as he and his fellow teammates took a knee during the national anthem.



An anti-American pro soccer player was disgusted when fans chanted “USA, USA” as he and his fellow teammates took a knee during the national anthem on Wednesday.

Dallas Soccer Star Reggie Cannon was furious when fans exhibited more patriotism than all the players on the field combined, Wednesday.

At the start of the game, as is apparently de rigueur in every major sport now, the players began protesting against the very country that has allowed them to become rich playing kid’s games.

But not all fans appreciated the anti-Americanism and they began booing and chanting “USA, USA.”

Cannon, for one, was” disgusted” by the pro-American sentiment.

“I think it was disgusting. I think it was absolutely disgusting. You got fans booing you for people taking a stand for what they believe in and millions of other people support this cause,” he exploded in a post-game rant.

“Unfortunately, it was played during these times when we asked for the anthem not to be played. It pissed me off that you can’t even have support from your own fans in your own stadium. It’s baffling to me,” the anti-American player added.

In another segment of his screeching he said, “…The last six months have been absolute hell for us. Absolute hell. Because We have to watch other people play soccer, and we’re just sitting home unfortunately contracting COVID from the unfortunate situations that we were put in…”

“We had someone chanting “USA!” when they don’t understand what kneeling means,” he exclaimed.

Cannon went on a rant attacking patriotic Americans:

The fact is, it is historical revisionism to claim that protests aren’t meant as a direct attack on the country, its troops, police, and traditions.

The man who invented the act of taking a knee during the anthem said as much when he created it in 2016.

When he first began his protests in 2016, former NFL player Colin Kaepernick said quite directly that he could not stand for the American flag. His protest was a direct attack on the flag and the country, and he said so in his own words in August of 2016.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football, and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder,” Kaepernick said.

Kaepernick gave other clues about the nature of his protests in 2016, as well. For instance, he wore a shirt praising Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, a mass murderer, and self-professed enemy of America. Kaepernick also showed that he was not just protesting the few police that misbehave when he wore socks that portrayed all police officers as pigs.

Also, in 2016, Kaepernick said that the U.S. was never great, noting that he was standing up against the whole country in general, not just in support of “social justice,” with his anthem protests.

The former NFL player also made his protest about the flag when he forced Nike to ditch its Betsy Ross flag shoes in 2019. Nike announced that it intended to release a patriotic gym shoe with a Betsy Ross Flag theme until Kaepernick ginned up the anti-American left to attack Nike for the proposal. In one of his broadsides against Nike, Kaepernick even claimed that the U.S. Betsy Ross flag was a “symbol of slavery.”

Unsurprisingly, Nike immediately caved in and dumped the plans for the patriotic shoe.

Kaepernick himself said that the protests were pure anti-Americanism through and through.

Clearly it is Reggie Cannon who doesn’t understand what kneeling means.
