I don't care. I watch basketball for basketball only. Not for politics. I don't care what color you are. Just shut up and dribbles.

In a perfect world.  But we are not that.  We politicized the hell out of Joe Louis and Jesse Owens, and for good reason.  If you're ok with that then you have to accept the politicization of people like Muhammad Ali and many others to follow.  My only real complaint would be Krappernick's choices in how he protested.  The protesting itself is not a concern.  As for Lebron or anyone who acts like that....I'm not down with athletes dismissing people simply over their support of a politician.  Weak minded people act that way.
