Morgan Freeman, er, Bill Russell attends Obama inauguration

I’m shocked that a political nerd like George Stephanopoulos couldn’t recognize the greatest winner in the history of sports.

Bill Russell: 11 championships

Morgan Freeman: 1 Academy Award

I can’t believe Freeman didn’t win an Oscar for playing Red in Shawshank Redemption. Now that’s criminal.

    What a sad day in America, the land of food stamps and home of the debt slaves.

            I bet I’m more successful than you.

            Look out for Obama’s drones!

          I don’t think he’s a great president either but at least criticize him what he should be criticized for, such as his constant attacks of the Constitution (no not gun “rights” but things like NDAA).

      I usually don’t like your constant Rondo bashing, but I can get used to your Obama bashing.

        I know this is a basketball blog but I’ll just say that Obama is arguably the worst president of our time. He is so clueless about the economy he makes Bush look like a genius. And don’t even get me started on this “constitutional scholar’s” assault on our constitution. He is a tyrant and should be frogmarched out of the WH. And did you assholes know that Obama has guaranteed to backstop some $800 TRILLION in the derivatives market with YOUR tax dollars should it (and it will) collapse one day? Yeah. Look that one up.

        I think it’s pathetic that so many of these black celebs and athletes support him just because he’s black. I suppose it makes them feel empowered to see a black man in the WH but it’s never been more difficult for young blacks to find jobs in this country and more blacks have been unjustly kicked out of their homes under this president than any other presidents not to mention those that are incarcerated. Obama is a sociopath, man.

        But we deserve him because we are too goddamn stupid and/or apathetic. Americans have turned over their liberty in exchange for food stamps and some cheap ass, 3rd rate healthcare system. Good luck and God speed.

          It’s sad that libertarianism has taken so long to catch on.

          Our economy is already on the path to disaster, and Ron Paul, the most popular libertarian-based political figure, is too old to make enough impact in today’s political climate.

    Hmmm…. Bill Russell didn’t happen to vacation in Hawaii in the summer of 1960, did he?

    Love the fact he is wearing Celtics hat too!
