For greedy, privileged NBA “superstars” competing for Team USA at the Olympics, the basketball didn’t bounce the proper way.
Team USA and Team Nigeria competed in a pre-Olympic warm-up game, and the results were terrible for Team USA’s “activist athletes.”

According to the Associated Press, this was not how USA Basketball planned to begin its Olympic summer.
Nigeria was probably as surprised as the rest of the world.
If the Americans had any sense of invincibility heading into the Tokyo Olympics, it’s gone now, thanks to Nigeria’s 90-87 win over the United States on Saturday night, an international upset pulled off by a roster primarily made up of little-known NBA players who beat a group of All-NBA, All-Star, and max-contract players.
“We just wanted to compete,” said Gabe Nnamdi of Nigeria, who plays for the Miami Heat under the name Gabe Vincent. “We understand what USA Basketball means to the rest of the globe and what they’ve stood for for so long.”
The following are the final seconds of the game:

As you might expect, Americans who have grown tired of “activist athletes” seized on this defeat and showed no mercy to the “woke” NBA stars.
Here’s a sample of what’s being discussed online:
“GO NIGERIA!!! Maybe if our athletes were focused on the game and not on trying to make some DA political statement I’d feel sorry for them.
This round I’m rooting for the rest of the world. I love my country, just not the people representing us”
“Team BLM continues its losing ways. They will never be winners”
“Maybe they should spend less time taking a knee and more time practicing.”
“Is this Team USA or Team BLM”
“Too woke to concentrate on basketball.”
“Billion Dollar Babies are priviliged softies from the moment of birth”
“Bet none of the Nigerians kneeled diring their anthem.”
“Dedicated athletes beat rich social activist cry babies.”
“This is what happens when you take an opponent lightly. A lesson to be applied to everyday life. Not that I care one whit about sports anymore.”
“Hope they lose it all.”
“In the past something like this upset me but, today I just can’t give a shit anymore.”
“Team WokeBabies USA were thrown off by the lack of diversity and social justice virtue signaling from Nigeria and it broke their concentration”
These kinds of remarks continue indefinitely.
And it’s not surprising: there’s a lot of resentment between fans and players right now, and that resentment is mirrored in the NBA’s low ratings and general lack of support in the United States.
It’s simple: sports fans want to see them. Nobody wants politics and social justice to be intertwined with sports enjoyment, and it irritates me that these teams refuse to listen to their fans and abandon the “woke” crap.
This is why people are turning off their televisions.
Personally, I’ve always been a tremendous Olympic fan who never misses a single event.
But I’m not going to watch them any longer.
Why would I want to sit there and see a bunch of idiots who despise their nation win something and then spit in our faces?
Thank you, but no.
