He declared that, “By descending into the arena of politics with irresponsible ultimatums, threats and utterances, the NBA in Rivers has crossed the redline and become part of the enemy of our people.”
“The NBA kept quiet when they closed down our courts in 2013, lost its voice and remained indifferent when the homes of judges were brazenly attacked in the dead of night by security agents.
