Shannon Sharpe agrees with Rockets’ Austin Rivers

NFL Hall of Famer and current FS1 analyst Shannon Sharpe actually took Rivers’ side and agrees that it is in fact possible to do both. Sharpe was on FS1’s morning show Undisputed, and explained his rationale.

“I do agree with Austin Rivers. I believe they can play the game of basketball and still fight social injustice. I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this, not from an accumulation of leagues.

I’m in agreement with Austin Rivers, I love Kyrie’s passion. And whatever you think about him, he’s quirky and he rubs people the wrong way, he’s not the best teammate. He put alot of thought into this.

I do believe Kyrie thought long and hard about this but I don’t necessarily believe the league should go on hiatus. Because there are some guys in the league that have been fighting injustices and still playing at a high level.

So I believe they can do that. I believe these guys can play and still fight for social injustice.”
