Where’s Zach Randolph and his entourage when you need them?
So those brainwashed idiots of the Westboro Cult Church showed up in Graceland but they weren’t there to protest The King as the people of Memphis expected. No they were more interested in King James and the NBA than Elvis. Kids and teens held up signs with pictures of LeBron, Jason Collins, David Stern, Kobe and Steve Nash (really?) with the words “FAG NBA.”
The most amusing thing about the joke that is the Westboro Church is they were singing pop songs but with their own twisted remix lyrics like Maroon 5’s “This Love”: “This lust has taken control of you. We said, okay, god has become your foe.”
I will credit them for having a little bit of power. So far, every NBA team they protested has been eliminated from the playoffs: Houston, OKC, Chicago and New Jersey.
