LETTER: McGinnis deserves praise

As a person not particularly interested in sports, I loved Mickey Maurer’s column about George McGinnis [Maurer: Catching up with a hoops legend, Dec. 4]. George, as you rightly state, deserves this honor, but mostly he deserves to be recognized for a life well lived.

However, in my opinion, your statement about disrespecting the flag is off base. It is the right and duty of citizens of our country to respectfully protest injustices. You feel that athletes are disrespectful to the flag when they kneel. I feel that they are protesting injustices towards a segment of our population.

But we both agree that Big George deserves to be honored.
