The Bad And Good About Rajon Rondo, Bill Kennedy, Being Gay, And The National Basketball Association

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

I was reading this article down @ ESPN on Rajon Rondo who slurred NBA referee Bill Kennedy and I couldn't help but think a few things:

1. Bill Kennedy can be Bill Kennedy and fuck anyone else.

2. Damn Rondo, how far ye has fallen.

3. I didn't really care for all of the apology, but I am glad that he had to make an apology and was suspended without pay for one game.

4. Adam Silver should run the NFL:

"I wholeheartedly support Bill's decision to live his life proudly and openly," Silver said. "Throughout his 18-year career with the league, Bill has excelled as a referee because of his passion, dedication and courage. Those qualities will continue to serve him well both as a game official and as a positive influence for others. While our league has made great progress, our work continues to ensure that everyone is treated with respect and dignity."

In Kennedy's own words:
"I am proud to be an NBA referee and I am proud to be a gay man," Kennedy told Yahoo! Sports on Sunday. "I am following in the footsteps of others who have self-identified in the hopes that will send a message to young men and women in sports that you must allow no one to make you feel ashamed of who you are."
