San Francisco 49ers, Basketball, and Cleveland Cavaliers: LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick ls Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL @balleralert zar LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick Is Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL– blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Sunday, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBronJames showed his support for ColinKaepernick and his fight for social justice. The baller, who has been deemed the “greatest basketball player on the planet,” agreed with the notion that league owners are blackballing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I love football, but I’m not part of the NFL. I don’t represent the NFL,” James said, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “I don’t know their rules and regulations. But I do know Kap is getting a wrongdoing, I do know that. Just watching, he’s an NFL player. He’s an NFL player and you see all these other quarterbacks out there and players out there that get all these second and third chances that are nowhere near as talented as him. It just feels like he’s been blackballed out of the NFL. So, I definitely do not respect that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the Niners earlier this year, 42 other quarterbacks have signed contracts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The only reason I could say he’s not on a team is because the way he took a knee. That’s the only reason,” James said of Kaepernick’s protest of police brutality during the national anthem. The movement began during the 2016 NFL preseason and has since expanded throughout different sports and continued through the 2017-18 season, despite Kaepernick’s unemployment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I watch football every Sunday, every Thursday, every Monday night. I see all these quarterbacks – first-string, second –team, third-team quarterbacks-that play sometimes when the starter gets hurt or are starters that play. Kap is better than a lot of those guys. Let’s just be honest.”

Back to Back, Cavs, and Derrick Rose: Derrick Rose Leaves Game With Sprained Ankle, Says Foul Was Flagrant @balleralert Eox FOX NFL MIN Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) and QB Sam Bradford (knee) are out for Sunday's gar Derrick Rose Leaves Game With Sprained Ankle, Says Foul Was Flagrant – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the second game of the 2017-18 NBA regular season, DerrickRose left with a sprained left ankle after being hit by Bucks center GregMonroe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the fourth quarter of the ClevelandCavaliers’ first road win of the season, Rose went up for a reverse layup, when Monroe caught him around the neck in an attempt to contest the shot. When Rose came back down, his left ankle twisted, forcing the sprain. But, oddly enough, a flagrant was not called for the hard hit, as the refs claimed Monroe “didn’t do it with any intent.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I think I’m the only person in the league that’s not getting a flagrant for that call, bro,” Rose said before leaving the game. “Come on, man. Like, I’m sure I’m the only player, but it is what it is. ….That’s a common foul. Wow. Come on.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result of Rose’s injury, Cavs Coach Tyronn Lue said Rose will probably miss the end of Cleveland’s back-to-back against the Orlando Magic, ESPN reports. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Just got to see how he feels,” Lue said. “It doesn’t look good right now.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I mean, it’s a sprain,” Rose said after the game. “It is what it is. There’s nothing I can do about that. Take me out [in] the air, kind of twisted my ankle when I came down. So, get a lot of treatment and see how it feels Saturday.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I haven’t had any problems with my ankle in a long time,” Rose added. “I don’t even wear braces anymore, which lets you know. So, I haven’t had any problems with it. Now, just got to make sure I get treatment, and if anything, I don’t lose the conditioning that I’ve built up and that I have right now. I’m in great shape right now, so I’ll be back.”

Children, Community, and Espn: Michael Jordan Donates $7 Million To Launch Two Medical Clinics in Charlotte, NC @balleralert Michael Jordan Donates $7 Million To Launch Two Medical Clinics in Charlotte, NC – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Charlotte Hornets owner and NBA legend, MichaelJordan, is donating $7 million to fund the launch of two medical clinics in North Carolina. The Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics, which will be built in north and northwest Charlotte, will be one of the largest gifts ever from the superstar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Through my years of working with Novant Health, I have been impressed with their approach and their commitment to the community,” Jordan said in a release on Monday. “It is my hope that these clinics will help provide a brighter and healthier future for the children and families they serve.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A spokesperson for the NBA great spoke with The Associated Press, on Monday, to further discuss the donation. He said Jordan “feels so great about being able to impact the Charlotte community and help people really deserve it. Michael and Novant are really excited about this project.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the Charlotte Observer, the project came about after Jordan learned of a “2014 study from Harvard and the University of California at Berkeley that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those in any big U.S. city to life themselves out of poverty,” Jordan’s spokesperson revealed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Michael really wanted to do something personally, he and his family, in the North Carolina area, separate we’ve done with the Hornets.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The two clinics are expected to care for nearly “35,000 children and adults who don’t have access to primary or preventative care,” projected to open in 2020. According to ESPN, the clinics will allow patients to receive “affordable, high-quality care.” They could also limit emergency room utilization, and decrease hospitalization for residents in the Charlotte area. ballerificcharity

Blessed, Dumb, and Espn: cthagod l can't wait until @jemelehill gets a platform in which she can give her unfiltered opinion. You can't say shit on @ESPN without outrage, can't say shit on social media without outrage, what the hell y'all want her to do be a mime???? They really sending a message and that message is that there is a high cost to free speech. Are you willing to pay the price??? "If liberty means anything at all it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear." Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear." Not to mention this just get back for her telling the truth about Trump which is also wack because "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Now here's the thing I'm quoting Harry Truman, Theodore Roosevelt, and George Orwell in no particular order but I'm taking the credit because it's Columbus Day and this day is all about stealing things and taking the credit for it so let me give you one more courtesy of George Washington "If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter" Now when repeating all these quotes just remember to credit me and not the people who actually said them because that's the way Christopher Columbus would have wanted it. Have a Blessed Day Charlemagne had this to say about JemeleHill’s suspension from ESPN...thoughts? 🤔 @CThaGod WSHH
