    What do you think Chris Jackson (Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf) is thinking right now?

    He "should've" and/or "could've been the Colin Kaepernick

    https://www.courant.com/sports/baske...tou-story.html



    Then Abdul-Rauf refused to stand for the national anthem. He had been doing so for the entire season, for months, but it wasn't until mid-March when reporters noticed.



    By the 1995-96 season, he had hit a good groove. He was the team's scoring leader and tallied 51 points in a single game against the Utah Jazz. He had also begun to sit out the national anthem for what he would later say were religious and political reasons. He would either stretch on the sidelines or wait in the locker room until the anthem was over.


    At the end of the season, the Nuggets traded him - their highest-scoring player - to the Sacramento Kings. There, coaches put him on the court less and less. It was a process to weed him out, he told the Undefeated. When his contract ended in 1998, no NBA team would take him.

    He was a much better player in College when he believed in the Baby Jesus and he wore a cross on his shoelaces

    To this day, he is the only college basketball freshman to average 30 points per game, according to LSU.

    Guess this guy was just too late.

    Can't change fate.

    Colin Kapernick the cult hero of the left.

    Kaep was decent but the people who talk about him playing today after that long off are nuts. It is like saying Tony Romo or Jake Plummer could still play just because they were good their last year.

    I guess but basically every athlete from the 90's wish they came along 20 years later. It is not like Kaep was a shoe shiner, he made probably 60 million in salary and endorsements before he got a settlement and Nike deal.

    Kaep got a nike deal because he was a prominent player at the marquee position in a way more popular sport, and being a black QB gives him even more attention.

    It would be like Austin Rivers kneeling and getting 100 million.
