onto the court to Los Angeles

Message12 Sep 2018, 11:58

LOS ANGELES Deryk Engelland Golden Knights Jersey , May 7 (Xinhua) -- Residents in the western U.S. state of Wyoming continued a campaign this weekend by wearing colorful tutus to protest Republican Senator Mike Enzi's anti-homosexual remarks.

On April 25, when Enzi visited a high school in Wyoming, he was asked what he and other Washington officials would do for the queers in the state nicknamed "the Equality State."

"If a man wears a tutu in a bar and ends up getting bullied, then it's partly the man's fault because he 'kind of asks for it'," Enzi said,suggesting that LGBTQ (lesbian Marc-Andre Fleury Golden Knights Jersey , gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) would face discriminations only if they are too open about it.

The remarks sparked an immediate backlash and Enzi apologized later that day for what he called "a poor choice of words."

However, the senator's backpedaling was too late to stop a protest started by local residents as well as institutes, media outlets and NGOs such as University of Wyoming James Neal Golden Knights Jersey , LGBTQ Nation, and Wyoming Equality.

Since April 28, thousands of photos showing local men wearing tutus to restaurants, parks, and bars had been posted and shared on social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

AmCuprill posted on her Twitter account a picture and said: "Hey @SenatorEnzi three friends walked into a bar wearing tutus and they weren't 'asking for it'."

Another poster Meirata Authentic Tomas Tatar Jersey , who shared a picture in which he and two young men stood on a snowy ground dressed in white tutus, criticized Enzi for his "blatant disregard for minorities and loudly expressed privilege and ignorance."

Fresh off winning the NBA title in 2008 2009, the Los Angeles Lakers made a major splash in the offseason by acquiring one of the game s more controversial players: Ron Artest. Artest was coming off his contract with the Houston Rockets, who eventually signed former Laker Trevor Ariza Authentic Alex Tuch Jersey , making the Artest signing an essential swap for Ariza. The Lakers move was an obvious attempt to position the team to repeat in 2009 2010, but will it work?

Artest will bring a lot of things onto the court to Los Angeles. He was once one of the best defenders in the league and is still a really good one. He s a big body, so he has no trouble guarding the larger small forwards in the league and he possesses decent lateral quickness, though that has deteriorated a bit over time. He s a good on ball defender and knows how to play within a team system, as well. He s strong and relatively quick for his size and never lacks in the effort department.

On offense, Artest is a solid though unspectacular player. He s a tough competitor on both ends of the floor Authentic Nate Schmidt Jersey , but could use a bit more finesse on offense. He can score, and while his shot selection can be shaky, he won t be asked to score a ton on this team. He can shoot from three, which will come in handy, but the biggest thing he brings to the team in general is toughness.

On the court, the move should work out very well Authentic Jonathan Marchessault Jersey , as long as his and his teammates play is not affected by any off the court stuff. Artest has been known to be a bit eccentric and has been somewhat of a distraction throughout his career. The Lakers, though, are well aware of this and are obviously willing to roll the dice. Lamar Odom has been a friend of Artest s since the two were attending high school in Queen, NY and the team already has an alpha dog in Kobe Bryant. Those two players should go a long way in keeping Artest in line.

Another big factor in keeping Artest in line should be Phil Jackson. The Lakers coach isn t called the Zen Master for nothing. He s been able to control players throughout his coaching career, and did a fantastic job keeping Dennis Rodman in line as well as he could in Chicago. Notice that Rodman s career didn t last long after he and Phil parted ways. Jackson will surely have a calming effect on Artest.

The Lakers are definitely one of the top teams in the NBA and should be the favorite to represent the Western Conference in the NBA Finals this season. The essential Artest Ariza swap makes the Lakers better in the short term, which they evidently felt was necessary with teams like San Antonio and Cleveland getting richer in the offseason with free agent acquisitions and trades.

No matter what happens Authentic Brad Hunt Jersey , Ron Artest is going to help sell Los Angeles Lakers tickets at http:www.stubhublos angeles lakers tickets in some fashion. If the Lakers win the title, it may be seen that they did it in spite of Artest. If they don t, he ll get blamed for it, but neither will be accurate. Basketball is still a team game and the Lakers are a good team with or without Artest.
