NBA Coach Says Felt Like More Fans in the Audience, ‘We’re Counting Like the Republicans’

Doc Rivers

NBA playoff games were held over the weekend, and the Philadelphia 76ers held one of the games at their arena. Players and coaches were pleasantly surprised to find an increased number of fans in the audience, but 76ers coach Doc Rivers used it as an opportunity to take a shot at Republicans.

It was determined that roughly 11,000 fans attended the 76ers game against the Washington Wizards at the Wells Fargo Center for their Game 1 matchup. “I can’t believe that was 10,000, 11,000 [people]. There’s no way. I think we’re counting like the Republicans because it felt like 30,000 people in the stands. They were amazing” said Rivers.

“Let’s keep it going. It’s so nice to have that at home” Rivers continued. “You know, we got down early in the second quarter and in the beginning of the third and they never wavered” Rivers said of the fans. “That gives a team energy. I don’t think people understand how important that is” he added.

The 11,000, but “felt like 30,000 people in the stands” helped Philadelphia claim victory in a close game of 125-118. Game 2 will be played Wednesday, again at the Wells Fargo Center. We shall see if it’s the Republicans or Democrats that “count” the fans in the stand for Game 2.

    Doc no one really cares about the NBA. I believe the golf tournament viewership this past weekend eclipsed all the NBA games combined. Even NHL did better. Go figure.

    Another azzhole coach that has to attack Republicans because he and the players in the NBA are a bunch of lowlifes that disrespect the Flag and the country! Maybe he and the rest of these leeches should just move to China !

    Democrats count fans like they count votes! I use to watch the NBA when they showcased their talents rather than their political views. Now I spend that time with my family building a strong unity bond. No time for those corporations that strive for division. I wonder if this coach strives for division among his players or does he strive for unity as a team???? My advice for this coach is coach your team and stay out of politics and perhaps you would count 30,000 fans at your games!

    They just can’t stop digging that hole deeper. Seems like they want sports to just be all democrats. That’s okay with me.

    These fools keep digging deeper and deeper expecting fans to return. When you divide us you do not conquer us, we just find better ways to spend our money and our time. Seems like these high paid idiots will never learn. Hopefully their pay falls with their ratings. I will never watch the woke sports again. That includes the NFL, NBA and MLB.

    I, like many of you, stopped watching many sports on TV and in person for one reason and one reason only; the sports no longer resemble “sports”. I know that sounds stupid but all I know is, when I watch a sport, especially a professional one; I spend half of the time watching these guys dance around the court or playing field doing some kind of antics that does the “look at me, look at me” for simply tackling the other player or dunking the ball. What? It’s not enough that you get paid a disgusting amount of money to play the sport; we now have to watch you act like a bunch of thugs fighting on the field or wasting time dancing around like a poor epileptic person having spasms trying to shower attention upon yourself. It seems like every game there is a bench emptying fight of some sort because you azzholes can’t show any respect for the game. Nowadays, you flagrantly flaunt the rules; Christ, traveling hasn’t been called in an NBA game in 20 years but you have to let them play playground rules so they can “wow” the audience with a rule breaking traveling dunk. Sorry, but I’m impressed when you can do it while following the rules, not breaking them and doing it. Sports has been ruined forever because of one thing and one thing only; a total disrespect of the game. So, Dear Doc Rivers, you just showed what an idiot you are for slamming more than 50% of your viewership; probably more because most Democrats are not sports players; they’re leeches, so your viewership is probably closer to 30% these days.

Shaq Denounces ‘Celebrity-Ness’ Says They are ‘Out of Their Freaking Mind’

Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one

In an interview with the New York Post, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal had some harsh words for celebrities and declared he is not one. “I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it” O’Neal told the Post while discussing his new Kellogg’s deal.

“Celebrities are crazy. I don’t want to be in that category. They are. They’re going freaking insane. Don’t call me that anymore” said O’Neal. “These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.”

O’Neal’s Kellogg’s deal consists of his own new Frosted Flakes cereal, Crispy Cinnamon Basketballs, and partnership with Mission Tiger, which will help over 60,000 middle-schoolers.

“The Mission Tiger program pledged to purchase new sports equipment, including uniforms, for students across the U.S. The Schools involved in the mission will take place in the six cities where O’Neal played over 19 seasons – Boston, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Miami, Orlando and Phoenix” reports The Post.

O’Neal wants to be remembered for his kindness, says the 49-year-old who grew up poor in New Jersey and says he tries to do random acts of kindness at least twice per week.

Everyone gets stereotyped but celebrities get stereotyped because most of them are “our of their damn mind.” He said. “I’m a regular person that listened, that followed their dreams, made it. But just because I made it don’t mean I’m bigger than you. Just because I made it don’t mean I’m smarter than you. Just cause I have more money than you don’t mean that I’m better than you.”

 I’ve never been that way and I never will be that way. So I don’t want to be in that category of people. When they talk about Shaq, what do you say? ‘He’s a nice guy.’ Because what else can you be? You’re either nice or you’re the A-word, and I definitely won’t be looked at as the A-word,” he said.

“I want people to say, ‘Bro, he’s nice. He didn’t have an entourage. His people didn’t take my phone because I took a picture and threw it.’”

Employees Completely Helpless as Shoplifters Walk Out With Thousands Worth of Goods at Oregon Lowes

Social media Twitter account @libsoftiktok which states in the bio it posts “all things insane & hypocritical” posted a one-minute video showing “2 people walk out of an Oregon Lowe’s with carts of stolen merchandise. Employees look on and are unable to do anything.”

As the video plays, words highlighted red appear that read, “INCREDIBLE STATE OF OREGON, USA” and “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY.” The video takes place at a Lowes store and epitomizes the sad times we are in.

Within the first eight seconds of the video, the two robbers, with filled carts, simply stroll out of the store as if they were paying customers. The Lowes employee asks the men “can you show me the receipts?” The young man appears to flash something while saying “right here.”

The female employee then says “no, I don’t think so” knowing the men did not pay for the items. The two thieves continue to walk the carts out of the store and a second, elderly Lowes employee attempts to stop the men, shouting “hey” as he follows them.

The female employee stops the elderly male employee from pursuing the robbers saying, “it’s not worth it.” As the robbers have successfully exited the store, into the parking lot, the male recording the video then asks the employees, “doesn’t it suck you guys can’t do anything? I mean I think it’s just amazing.”

The video then shows the men in the parking lot throwing the stolen items into a red Subaru where it appears others were waiting to help. A voice can be heard explaining that the guys are packing the car with stolen goods, and another man explains it happens “every day.”

“Dude that’s thousands of dollars – I’m an electrician, bro” the videographer explains of the sheer amount of goods being stolen. The thieves close the back door and the videographer zooms in to the back of the car to show the “license tag” before the car speeds away. The red highlighted words “IF YOU KNOW THESE PEOPLE, PLEASE ALERT THE POLICE IMMEDIATELY” remained on the video the whole time.
