@Louis Arno You really just opened my eyes to something and I'm warning you say something slick again

@J Boi Sorry, but, I'm a little dissapointed that you don't want discourse. To repair our people! Instead, you must want to be oppressed and you probably thought you could instill 'white guilt' in me!! NOT!!! I am guilty of nothing! It's all your own peoples fault for being so easily led like sheep! Sorry, but, you know it's true!!

@J Boi I appreciate you opening up to me! But, you have to know something!! The Act of District of Columbia, signed in 1871 after the civil war. Enslaved us all in their privatized prison systems! We instantly became corporate entities of a corporation! The history you've learned is fake! Example of this is William Ellison. The largest slave owner in N. Carolina! He was a black man!!! Go to the Abbeville Institute and learn American history from the souths perspective. It's more in line to facts! There is an agenda and it's called the 'Great Reset'. Or 'The 4th Industrial revolution!'. The combining of machine and man. B.L.M. is helping this agenda! White Christian men like me, who ran the underground railroad for the slaves. Is 'STILL' trying to fight for 'EVERYONES" freedom. That is why we have a genocidal agenda against us! We will fight with you for freedom. But, we will only kneel to GOD!! God bless you and yours and please, I beg you, to look deeper into the truth!!!

It’s time for mandatory fairness in sports, journalism, radio, concert venues, Boston marathons or anything else put out for public consumption, America must meet the “racial ratio” per capita of people on a first come, first served! As an example, all sports teams or even journalists/newscasts must exhibit the correct ratio of people and content that pertaining to their interests according to a vote, citing the order of importance to the separate coalitions! Reflect America’s demographics, no exceptions, 62%white, 17%hispanic, 12.5%black, 5.2%asian, 2.3%mixed and 1%other! The other option is: YOU CAN BE AN ADULT AND SIT AT THE BIG PEOPLES TABLE where we do and say as we see fit according to our conscience and you have the right to stay or go!

That is exactly right . I was already bothered by so many people predicting that the Lakers will automatically win. I loved Lebron's defense. I haven't seen that kind of defensive intensity from him in a while. I know a win is a win and I definitely will take it but the Lakers must do more and better. Very glad they won but it was barely. The time factor as far as mintues played is important. Staying on the floor for 48 minutes will be hard to do and win a championship.

SAS is right and the Raptors game proved it. Lakers are a fairly NEW team that had just locked in when the season stopped. Raptors an established unit that even without Kawhi looked like they hadn't missed a beat. IOW established teams, like the Champs, have the advantage right now. And it might stay like that.

It doesn't seem LeBron and Anthony Davis have the stamina to grind these 8 seeding games at the same level. They lost the game after this one, will come back in the next, play poorly the other, and so forth. Avery Bradley's contribution is being missed, and the super short schedule doesn't favor a veteran but older team like the Lakers. Just my opinion.

Steven A is prisoner of the moment, 1) The clippers need Lou Williams scoring ability yes, However he is also a liability on Defense which is why the lakers beat the clippers in march when Lebron put Lou Williams in every I mean every pick and roll. 2) The game was only close because Lebron had an off night shooting which won't happen often, 3) people are acting like The lakers best on ball defender in Avery Bradley isn't missing and they will need time to adjust their defensive schemes account for his absence. 4) Through 4 games whether Montrez Harrell is there or not they can not stop Anthony Davis and they won't double Ad or Lebron because they know the price they will pay.
