Michael Bennett: Force of Nature
"As a black man in America, and as an athlete, we should speak up more about things, like Jim Brown and Muhammad Ali did.”
On Ben Carson: "I don’t trust him because of the way he moves his hands. Something about his hands tells me he’s telling a lie."
On legalizing marijuana: “If you’re going to legalize cigarettes and liquor, I don’t see why marijuana shouldn’t be legalized. At the end of the day they all do the same thing.”
On the player’s union: "We can’t come to agreement on things. That’s why we’re so weak in bargaining. We’re the weakest group of all the sports…The biggest players, the Peyton Mannings, they do their thing. You don’t see Peyton Manning coming out and say- ing, This, this, that, that."
On why he dons a beard: “In the history of time, every wise man had a beard…Jesus had a beard. Moses had a beard. Abraham had a beard. Malcolm X had a beard. It’s a wisdom thing.”
On gun rights: “ Getting a gun should be harder than getting a mortgage. When people have guns, they tend to use them."
