Off the wall but quick story about getting my citizenship. My citizenship ceremony was at the JFK Museum in Boston and it was sponsored by the Red Sox and running late, which I thought was odd but didn't think too much of it. There was a big television crew there which I thought it could be for Ted Kennedy since he from my understanding, he likes to do these ceremonies (he was in the hospital at the time). I quickly found out that it was because David Ortiz was also getting his citizenship. That made an already great moment even cooler.

Also, prior to that, my brother and I had to go to Boston to take the citizenship exam early morning. Since we were done early and Celtics playoffs tickets for Game 7 against Atlanta (2008) was going to start selling soon, we walked over and waited in line and ended up getting $10 tickets. Since the Celtics was crushing the Hawks, they made the announcement that they'd sell the tickets for the next round so we got tickets for the next series at $15 and we got to see Pierce battle Lebron James.

Great story!!!

Lucky guy!!!

No, Daryl Morey is not allowed to express HIS views according to spoiled brat, self-proclaimed ď Chosen OneĒ, owned by China (read CCP), supposed supporter of human rights, Bron Bron.

Bron Bron shamed/excoriated Daryl Morey for supporting Hong Kong! The CCP snapped their chain, Nike and Bron Bron and the NBA jumped.

See the evil, self aggrandizing self benefiting hypocrisy of the self-proclaimed King. The ďkingĒÖ..how despotically appropriate.

Itís good to be the king! Why would he even deign to meet with a plebeian sort such as Freedom.

Freedom for me and not for thee says The king!

Iím not sure I understand what point you are trying to make here. He would like to have a conversation with Lebron because Lebron has spoken out against morey (who Lebron himself said was uneducated). Isnít the whole point they have the freedom to have these discussions? Or do people not realize how this all started?

Yeah I didnít see your response but this is another way of saying what I said. Ogajus point doesnít make sense to me. Lebron says morey needs to be educated and shouldnít speak. Kanter says Lebron needs to be educated. Yet somehow only Lebron doing it is ok?

Edit: really hoping this isnít a matter of thinking Lebron can have an opinion and kanter canít cause kanter wasnít born here

lol..does Kanter have more of an opinion because he wasnít born here? Bottom line is as long as you are not breaking any laws people should be allowed to say what ever they want. Kanter, LeBron, everyone. Do you get it now. No one should shut the other up.

So you are basically saying it was not ok for Lebron to tell morey to shut up and it was not ok for kanter to tell Lebron to shut up? I can at least understand that. Would probably be better if they all actually talked to each other though.

Yes because if you really practice freedom of speech you should not stifle legal non-violent speech.

Yeah, itís truly shocking how much folks try to censor other folks these days. A free country is all about free speech. Thatís the bedrock of freedom in many ways. Obviously people cannot explicitly threaten others, or say something untrue to cause a panic (yelling fire in a packed theater), but not sure there should any other limits to free speech.

In terms of China, thereís Free China (Taiwan) and Communist China. Secretly most Chinese citizens want both countries to unite and be Free China. Not sure what else to say. Who really wants a communist party telling you what to say, do, and think? And even if someone was a powerful member of the party, why would they not instead want to see people be free?

Lots of contradictions at play. But here to talk about basketball and keep these thoughts to a minimumÖ

Well it is a pretty awesome country, and this forum is one example of why it is. 

Enes has the right to express his opinions freely, and others have a right to freely criticize them. 


Try that in China.

Enes is a little drunk right now on getting his US citizenship, after suffering years of threats against his life from the Turkish government. I'm sure he can survive a few barbs from woke culture, for having the audacity to be interviewed by Tucker Carlson. 

Welcome to the USA, Mr. Freedom!!

I agree with you other than the woke comment which is not only unnecessary but just another way to attempt to diminish the value of an opinion through stereotype.
