NFL Legend Brian Urlacher blasts NBA Players for Boycott Over Blake’s Shooting

Hall of fame Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher stirred up a hornet’s nest when he posted a comment critical of NBA players boycotting over Jacob Blake’s shooting.

Urlacher wrote:

Brett Favre played the MNF game the day his dad died, threw 4 TDs in the first half, and was a legend for playing in the face of adversity.

NBA players boycott the playoffs because a dude reaching for a knife, wanted on a felony sexual assault warrant, was shot by police.

Jacob Blake was charged with third degree sexual assault last month.

According to the Wisconsin DOJ, a knife was found in the footwell of Blake’s vehicle.

The comments stirred up many Jacob Blake supporters and NBA players.

Mark Lazerus called it “some serious ignorant sh*t.”

Jamal Crawford wrote “There are a lot more Brian Urlacher’s out there..”

Isaiah Thomas wrote “That’s sad smh. He’s a real life sucka for that”

Mike Cernovich shared the story and wrote “Show me the lie.”

Urlacher stirred further controversy for apparently liking a post that said “Free Kyle Rittenhouse.”

The Chicago Bears said in a statement about Urlacher “The social media posts in no way reflect the values or opinions of the Chicago Bears organization.”

Urlacher visited the White House earlier this year.

He wrote “This was a once in a lifetime experience! Got to hang in the Oval Office with President Trump and my family. He could not have been any nicer or accommodating to all of us. Also thanks to Jeff and Nick for the amazing tour of the WH ”
