Fans Rip Spurs Rookie Lonnie Walker For Stating He Won’t Celebrate Independence Day (TWEETS)
Lonnie Walker was the number 18 picked in the NBA draft by the San Antonio Spurs and is currently playing on the team’s summer league squad. He is most remembered on draft night for putting his cap on his rather interesting hairstyle that garnered a bunch of laughs.
Those giggles went away on Wednesday when the incoming rookie took to social media on July 4th and stated he has never and will never celebrate Independence day and urged others to know their history.
The tweet said, “Will never celebrate 4th of July. Know your history!! and stay woke.”
He would soon delete it after the backlash!
That comment wasn’t well received by others and he was blasted for it:
You met David Robinson not too long ago… do you think he’s “woke”? pic.twitter.com/7x7SRzwC5A

Well FU then, Spurs or not, go ask to be traded to the British Empire, I’m very sure the UK has a basketball ball team. I live on the Texas border with Mexico and I’m glad such country exist. Can you tell me of a country with no violent history so you can go there and be proud?

Probably not the best take from the Spurs draft pick in the state that has the second largest group of active and reserve members of the military in the United States. https://t.co/20lgKDa7lx

Oh no, here we go!!! I fight for nothing I guess. I’m wondering what other countries have the liberties we have to say and do what we want. If it wasn’t for the men and women that made our country great!!! RED!!!
