Extractions: To return to the current issue's index The National Basketball Association, in suspending Denver Nuggets' basketball player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, and the media, in conducting a witch hunt against the athlete, demonstrated both hypocrisy and extreme sensitivity to the intrusion of political and social reality into the world of sports. Citing his Muslim beliefs, Abdul-Rauf refused to stand for the playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner," contravening an NBA regulation. He explained his action by stating that the US flag was a "symbol of oppression, of tyranny. This country has a long history of that. I don't think you can argue the facts." Indeed tens of millions around the world would not. Abdul-Rauf has been unobtrusively refusing to stand for the anthem for some time. It only became an issue when talk show hosts in Denver caught on to the fact and played up the issue. The player was accused of a lack of patriotism, profaning the memory of those who had died in US uniforms and so on. The NBA front office, responding to the jingoistic campaign, promptly suspended him. Abdul-Rauf then agreed to abide by the league rule, saying he would pray during the national anthem instead. The NBA's claim about the sanctity of the anthem is absurd. When its playing threatens to interfere with valuable television time, during a network broadcast, for instance, "The Star-Spangled Banner" is performed 20 minutes ahead of time to a half-empty arena.
Extractions: NBA Basketball player Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (formerly Chris Jackson) was a leading free throw shooter in the NBA for the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings from 1990-98, averaging 15.2 points a game. On August 20, 2000, the Vancouver (B.C.) Grizzlies announced that they had signed free-agent Abdul-Rauf. A guard, he originally came to the NBA from Louisiana State University, and became an instant sensation in the NBA, scoring 48 points in his third pro game. Abdul-Rauf is featured in an independent documentary, "Twitch and Shout" produced by two film makers with TS.
