Mural Depicts Dak Prescott In The Sunken Place

Published

Dak Prescott has been getting a lot of smoke for his views on players kneeling in the NFL. The Cowboys quarterback got a lot backlash, with many feeling like his comments ignored the social injustice behind the protest.

A new pop art mural was created with Prescott in the Sunken Place. The mural has Prescott his eyes wide open with tears streaming down his face like Daniel Kaluuya in Get Out.

The Sunken Place has become synonymous with the idea of someone being oblivious or in denial of the social issues pertaining to people of color.

On July 27th at training camp, the Cowboys quarterback stated that he would never kneel during the National Anthem.

“I never protest during the anthem, and I don’t think that’s the time or the venue to do so,” Prescott said earlier. “The game of football has always brought me such at peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people, a lot of people playing the game, a lot of people watching the game, a lot of people that have any impact of the game. So when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away. It takes away from that. It takes away from the joy and the love that football brings to a lot of people.”

Prescott went on to explain he respects what the players believe in, but prefers a different method.

“I respect what all those guys believe in,” he said. “If they believe it’s going to make a change and it’s going to make a difference then power to them. But for me, I believe in doing something, action. It’s not about taking a knee. It’s not necessarily about standing. We can find a different place to make our country better. A

Prescott stands by his comments.

“I made my statements. I stand by what I said,” Prescott said. “Some people might have misunderstood or whatever, but I know what I said, and I feel strongly about what I said. It is what it is.”

Dwayne Wade and Lebron James played their final game against each other in the Staple Center on Monday night.

This is a bitter-sweet moment that both players have been dreading since Wade announced that this would be he would be retiring at the end of the year.

James spoke to ESPN about the impact that Wade had on his career. “Obviously, without D-Wade in my career, I wouldn’t be sitting here with this résumé that I have,” said James. “Individually, I think I would still be doing my thing individually, but as far as me accomplishing the team goals that truly mean most to me? Twenty-seven wins in a row. Four straight Finals. Two back-to-back championships. It goes without saying. I wouldn’t be able to accomplish it without him.”

Wade had a chance to send the game into overtime, but Lebron was able to force him into a bad shot from the arch.

“He knew my move at the end that stopped me from getting to my shot,” Wade said. “That’s how well we know each other, man. Just two competitors who enjoy the game of basketball, who love each other and love competing. So I’m glad that in my 16 years that we were on the court together, we was in this game, we’ve made a big impact on and off the court.”

It was clearly tough for both players and great moment to witness.

Melo can’t be traded until at least Dec. 15, and sources said there had been no request made by James to Lakers president Magic Johnson or general manager Rob Pelinka to make a deal for his friend.

Lakers are still trying to find the right pieces to surround James with. Let us know what you think about.
