Boston Celtics’ Marcus Smart Cracks Wise About John Adams

For the few conservatives that remain NBA fans, the Boston Celtics’ Marcus Smart may have just chased them all away.

Smart made some ill-advised comments about John Adams that are not sitting well.

Now, he is facing the wrath of patriots who do not like his dismissive comments about one of our Founding Fathers.

Not Funny

Smart was trying to be funny in referencing his defensive skills, and he decided to take a few shots at Adams in the process…

After several fans called Smart on his comments, he continued to fire back…

A Little Lesson

The irony in all of this is that besides being the second president of the United States and a Founding Father of the country, Adams was one of the biggest advocates among our Founders to end slavery.

Adams never owned a slave and found the practice abhorrent.

On slavery, Adams stated,  “I have, through my whole life, held the practice of slavery in such abhorrence, that I have never owned a negro or any other slave, though I have lived for many years in times, when the practice was not disgraceful, when the best men in my vicinity thought it not inconsistent with their character, and when it has cost me thousands of dollars for the labor and subsistence of free men, which I might have saved by the purchase of negroes at times when they were very cheap.”

Adams was obviously a key player in the American Revolution, helped author the Declaration of Independence, and was a member of the Continental Congress.

One other notable accomplishment of Adams was adding John Marshall to the Supreme Court.

Marshall was critical in developing our legal system as well as ensuring the judiciary was developed as an independent branch of the government.

So, Mr. Smart, I hate to disappoint you, but just about everyone remembers the second president of the United States, unless they are making a not-so-funny joke.

  1. Speaking of forgetting: does anyone remember the first slave purchased in the colonies was bought in Boston by a black man? Does anyone remember that black tribes of Africa raided other tribes taking men, women and children as prisoners to sell to slave traders? Sad but true, so we all need to take a breath, calm down and remember….. don’t let this keep happening anywhere in the world! 🙏

  2. Just one more example of an ignorant sports figure running his yap just to hear himself, those like him or in some cases her usually are way short of a full mental deck so whatever comes out of their mouths should only be seen as the halfwitted gibberish of an under educated boob .

    1. Maybe he knows nothing about history.
      But I Believe that players like him , and there’s lot of them, shouldn’t be granted the opportunity they have of making so much money and not respecting the country where they’re making such great living. Shame on you
