K.J. McDaniels praises Dallas shooter as a “martyr”
Houston Rockets shooting guard/small forward K.J. McDaniels has made his opinion known about the Dallas Shootings, that killed five police officers, and injuring nine more. In a tweet that has now since been deleted, the Alabama native opened up:
The tweet shows that he agrees with another Alabama native named Kayln Chapman James (who incidently won the Miss Alabama trophy in 1993) who both praise Micah Johnson as a martyr. Now K.J. has denied what he tweeted, claiming it was someone else, but if you don’t know what that is, a martyr is someone who suffers for something they believe in.
In this case, they believed that Micah Johnson suffered for what he believed in. We don’t really know what a person can do, except when it’s too late to act. Without getting into a big discussion about this situation, killing innocent people shouldn’t happen, but at the same time killing innocent police officers shouldn’t happen as well. Hopefully one day we can all live and work together as one, instead of harboring violent thoughts and feelings against people.
K.J. McDaniels was drafted 32nd overall in the 2014 draft by the Philadelphia 76ers. He was traded to the Houston Rockets for Isaiah Cannan and a 2015 2nd round pick. He has played a considerable amount of time in the D-League, and has had an okay Summer League as well, averaging 13.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, as well as 2 blocks and steals a game.
