SORT BY Relevancy
Not many people are criticizing Kevin Durant for quitting Team USA nearly two weeks after the team began training camp, but I am an exception. I thought it was a poor choice by a guy who let down his national team coach and teammates -- even if the majority of folks want to give him a pass.
But as we look closer at Durant's decision, it raises some questions. Is he getting bad advice from Jay Z and Roc Nation, who represent him?
Is sneaker money more important than keeping your word to your coach and teammates?
And is Roc Nation making the right kinds of endorsement deals for Durant, who is negotiationg with UnderArmour and adidas as he ponders leaving Nike.

The chaos of statements from the Ferguson Police Chief is disrupting the peace of the protests in the community. It seems intentional. The heavy armament trained on the protestors and the Smoke Bombs, Rubber Bullets, and Tear Gas, is an incitement to violence along with the release of video that does not pertain to the shooting incident. Many on the GOP Right have stated that Jesse, and Rev. Al, are participating simply for the glory and not the results.
