BILL RUSSELL TAKES A SHOT AT PRESIDENT TRUMP “You are divisive & a coward”

In the wake of numerous protests around the US, many professional athletes, including current and former NBA players, raised their voices for social and racial injustice. It seems everybody had enough of the current situation the country is in and demand a change that will hopefully positively impact everyone.

One of the players who raised his voice and expressed his concern about the current president is none other than NBA legend and 11-time champion Bill Russell. Russell is an activist since his early days in the NBA when he joined forces with Mohammad Ali and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Cleveland in 1967. This time Russell, attacked President Trump for being a coward and his comments that nobody should kneel when the national anthem is played.

Trump you projected your narrative that #TakingAKnee is disrespectful & #UnAmerican it was never about that! You are divisive & a coward. It takes true courage 2 stand 4 what is right & risk your life in the midst of a pandemic. Proud2kneel, BlackLivesMatter, @MSNBC, @BostonGlobe
