In 2018, those three words should never be used during an argument involving an athlete. There are too many important things going on in this country right now for athletes to simply sit by and "stick to sports." Guys like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and every other athlete with a voice should do everything but stick to sports when they’re asked for their opinion on a pressing political or social matter.
Unfortunately, not everyone has gotten that memo yet.
On Thursday, UNINTERRUPTED released a fascinating interview that LeBron James and Kevin Durant did with ESPN’s Cari Champion recently. During it, the two NBA stars spent more than 15 minutes talking about everything from their earliest memories of basketball to their development as NBA players. But the most interesting—and most important—part of the interview came about five minutes in when the two talked about the current state of American politics, and in particular, Donald Trump.
