nah b, its a touchy subject. They used to call us monkeys, you wanna release a hoodie with a monkey on it and have them wear it during pregames? During black history month? I don't expect asians to wear the bhm tee, why must they have to wear the monkey joint? My new year was a month ago.

I lowkey feel uncomfortable in some of my bape stuff that says 'I am Ape'

Lakers tho...

Regardless the basis of his argument is to exclude one race to celebrate another. That's ridiculous. He should have thought of something better than that.

1. Chinese new year hasn't started yet.

2. Show me where he said he didn't want the year of the monkey celebrated at all, or only wants black people to be celebrated.


It's only the 2nd day of BHM we can't get no shine before they on to a holiday in another country?

I'm not ignorant towards that history,it's just that the NBA has always made an effort to honor various different cultures for years. I didn't feel offended when I saw the shirt because I know it could've been a "Year of the Rat/Ox/whatever" just as easily. There's nothing blatant or intentionally provocative about it at all and no other team/players felt the same way it seems.

To imply that the league doesn't do anything in comparison for BHM is just crazy talk laugh.gif. You guys forgetting that "Dream Big" campaign they had last year?

Wait it hasn't even started yet? Then why even put out the shirts so far in advance....

Nevermind I should have known. This is the Kings after all. I retract my statement.

There's no connection between the two tho. Like I said the lunar New Year has been a tradition since lord knows how long. The league also celebrates bhm
post #51459 of 93193
Even though they already do a lot,I wouldn't mind seeing them adopt this jersey design in the future for BHM as well

Thought I read it was league wide though. If not it still isn't really out of the question since there's a good amount of Chinese in Norcal

I think most teams will celebrate one way or another. Houston, GS, Washington I believe will have special jerseys.

warriors arent cocky man. theyre having fun and constantly downplayed the win streak while it was going on. theyre trying to beat the bulls record. thats not cocky. u act like steph and co out here saying "show me my opponent" while chewing an apple in the pressers or something. i dont think any of these dudes are cocky. they out there working. in fact, OUT-working everyone else.
