Please point out where I even came close...to saying that.

I have NEVER said, nor even implied a poster (or anyone for that matter)...isn't entitled to their own thoughts/opinions.

What the thread is about, is how it seems some folks don't think others (particularly celebrities)...should be allowed to voice their opinion(s).

That's it in a nutshell.

It only lends authority if you let it lend authority. Media attention doesn't seem to have amplified anyone's "mere" personal opinion on this board. Why do we think that it it's any different anywhere else? Most people can discern hypocritical motivations. Sometimes they don't want to. Sometimes they see them everywhere.

Look it is the " Adoring Public " that put these individuals on a Throne.

They become " Celebrities " be it Sports, Movies, TV, etc. etc.

They are so full of themselves overnight become so-called Experts on every subject under the Sun. And actually believe that they are really " Special ".

It is the Worshipers that put these clowns on the throne.

If I decided that all hypocrites were unworthy of my support, I wouldn't be able to vote.
I'm with you all the way. One of the reasons I am happy and content is that I've never been on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or any other of the social wrecking sites. I laugh every time some bozo gets into trouble for something stupid or ignorant printed on one of these sites.

We watched LeBron since he was 14 years old. A phenomenal talent to be sure. From his first 7 years with the Cavs to his shorter stay in Miami, back to the Cavs, and now the Lakers. We have rooted for him all the way. We have taken pause recently with his incredibly uniformed stance on China, and their human rights violations. And don't forget, the false narative..."I can't breathe, ....." I just saw LeBron during the national anthem run around yelling "let's go", totally disrespecting this country, and our anthem. Yes, I feel like a fool. My support of LeBron and the NBA is done.

Maybe it's not an appropriate topic, but... When nba season starts and where you'll watch it? I fell in love with this game past summer, and i'd never watched before. About Lebrone James, and others: they are not just people, they are rich people making business, and it's ok that they didn't meet expectation of yours. They do what is profitably for them, that's the life. Peace!
