New York Knicks center Joakim Noah makes his living by dribbling a basketball.
The cadets at the U.S. Military Academy make their living by protecting a nation that affords Mr. Noah the opportunity to dribble that basketball.
So the decent thing to do would be for NBA stars like Mr. Noah to show a little gratitude for these brave young men and women.
Instead, Mr. Noah disrespected the West Point cadets and demonstrated once again that an alarming number of professional athletes hold our nation in contempt.
Mr. Noah refused to attend a team dinner with Army Cadets because of his stance against gun violence and the war. He was also a no-show for a speech delivered by a retired colonel.
