Shuttlesworth > Reggie, but it’s close. Wouldn’t put up much of a fight if someone disagreed. Klay is well on his way to passing both. Hard to say he already has because if he never plays again yada yada, but assuming good health and continued production he’ll pass them both.

Klay isn't even in the conversation.  He had never been anything more than second fiddle.  Both Reggie and Allen lead teams to deep runs in the playoffs, without the help of great players.  Klay will have to go someplace else, and lead them to be in this conversation.  Right now Klay is just a modern day Pippen at best.

On Twitter, Martellus Bennett proclaimed “Kneeling in 2020 don’t hit the same 🤷‍♂️

This highlights the brilliance of the NBA, MLB and the NFL, when and if it plays, in protecting their revenue streams amidst the protest.  They just allow the protest.  No opposition, no controversy and no resistance = no attention for the cause and growing apathy among the players.  Agree on and pay Kap the economic value of the remainder of his career and fewer folk see him as an attention generating martyr.  Protests inherently need resistance which can be characterized as an oppressor.  The leagues removed themselves from that role.

Hopefully the work of combatting and ending police violence and institutionalized racism finds a more effective strategy.  New federal and state laws which define and prohibit acts of police violence which void contractual restrictions on discipline and terminations for committing such acts is the long and arduous path which must be taken.  Then thousands of judicial victories in thousands of cities and counties which provide the oversight and control over and responsibility for police violence must be sought and won.

Police violence is merely a symptom of a viciously cruel economic system that puts racial minorities at the bottom strata.  You can remove police violence from the equation (which is great), but you'll still have grinding poverty and lack of access to education, health care, nutrition, and the political process unless we combat those societal ills with taxpayer money from the richest among us.
