One has to wonder if the NBA is doing a mea culpa here, after the last year of utterly politicizing itself, from the idea of putting “social justice” messages on jerseys to cowering to China by criticizing the Free Hong Kong statement last Fall (which, ironically, involved the Rockets as well).
Here’s to hoping Harden, the team and the league backtrack and apologize to the radical Left for this, but kudos for showing solidarity with law enforcement in the first place. Our men and women in blue need all the support we can give them.
