To anyone who says, “Stick to sports” … let’s be real: Our President used to host a reality TV show. You’re telling me I can’t voice a political opinion?The piece is not primarily focused on blasting Donald Trump, but he did use a basketball analogy to condemn the President's reaction to what happened in Charlottesville.
I was shocked by how our President responded to Charlottesville.
Our President was given a layup: Denounce white supremacists.
And he couldn’t … and wouldn’t.
He missed … he missed badly.
I think about it like this: The President’s response, in basketball terms … ’cause you may know I know a little about the sport … was just like catching the ball on a fast break – no one else is even past half court – and then tripping on your own feet inside the paint as the ball flies out of bounds.
Should’ve been pretty easy.Before you watch him play basketball tonight in Rupp Arena, see America through Towns' eyes by reading "There Are More of Us Than There Are of Them." https://www.theplayerstribune.com/karl-anthony-towns-charlottesville/ w
