Bill Russell Mistaken for Morgan Freeman at Obama’s Inauguration (VIDEO)

Come on, man…

ABC cameras spotted Bill Russell in the crowd at today’s Inauguration of President Barack Obama’s second term, and TV journalist George Stephanopoulos called him Morgan Freeman (before quickly correcting himself.) Come on, George.

    Some people believe that certain people all look alike…

  • Max

  • Deez

  • Redd

    Idk why Slam brings politics into this site.

    But most logical people all know that Obama is evil. This inauguration is wack Obama ain’t even close to MLK.

  • kwamepooh

    no politics at all. just posting a video of bill russell being mistaken for morgan freeman. you bring the politics with your comment…

  • The Philosopher

    Aw hell…

  • Johnny5

    A legendary BASKETBALL PLAYER was mistaken for an actor. This is a basketball site. He could have been at an opera concert and Slam would have posted it if they had the video. You’re the only one talking politics.

    It’s true what they say around here. You really are the dumbest regular on Slam.

  • Redd

    Lol and u think I care what people say on a comment board? I did point out they need to keep the politics out but ok ya moron lol.

  • Redd

    Yes because it’s crucial that we know Bill Russell was mistaken for Freeman, absolutely dire.

    Lol emotional idiots.

  • Redd

    Did I mention Obama has killed innocent children? Or will u guys get emotional over that too?

  • The Philosopher

    Redd going in…

  • kwamepooh

    lol the only one getting emotional about this is you. it is as crucial as to see russ westbrook block rocky the mascot, still funny. you dont know ish about politics

  • Kevin

    Those dudes look exactly alike, it’s a honest mistake. Im black and I get those two confused sometimes

  • The Philosopher

    And they really do look alike, though.

  • Redd

    I am? I’m not the one getting upset at someone’s opinion.

    Didnt know you knew what I know about politics. Calm ya hat idiot.

  • Redd

    I mean just ignore me, I tend to use my opinions a lot on comment boards, it’s no big deal it’s what they’re for.

  • kwamepooh

    i dont need to know. Someone who is complaining about a video of bill russell on a basketball website obviously doesnt have the intelligence to understand politics. kiss <3

    sincerely yours

  • Johnny5

    Redd, trust me when I tell you that you are the last person to teach ANYONE on here anything about the world and how it works.

    But more importantly than that, NOBODY CARES about your opinion. If we want to have discussions on politics and world issues we’ll be sure to exclude dummies like you.

  • Redd

    Kiss?

    Yours?

    You idiot I complained about Obama not Bill..lol. Inauguration=president.

  • Redd

    Lol guess the Celtic logo didnt help at all.

  • kwamepooh

    you complained about a video where obama isnt even shown.

    btw

    inauguration = is a formal ceremony to mark the beginning of a major political leader’s term of office.

    president = is the head of state and head of government of the United States.

    ;)

  • The Philosopher

    You know I like to keep things going.

  • https://twitter.com/Wayne__o BuenoWayno1

    Not even surprised ”they” mistook bill for morgan even though russel looks nothing like morgan…..

  • Lorne

    Yes. You did complain about Obama, thus bringing politics into a forum about a basketball player. You know, the exact thing you accused Slam of doing when they didn’t. The post was about Bill Russell and Morgan Freeman. You are the one who offered an unsolicited opinion about a political figure. Do us all a favor and quit Slam.

  • The Philosopher

    Damn.

  • The Philosopher

    Damn.

  • Redd

    I’ve always loved posting political opinions, I said Slam should stop because people like me react. Give an outlet & I’ll chime in.

    The post was also about the inauguration you majestic moron.

  • Redd

    Tea=something u drink

    The inauguration is for the president you unholy idiot.

  • The Philosopher

    You’re not blinking, are you?

  • The Philosopher

    You’re not blinking, are you?

  • Redd

    That is true..leave it to u to comment on a thread surrounded by arguing, lol.

  • Johnny5

    You mean he’s not thinking. In fact, I doubt he’s ever been able to put together a coherent thought in his life.

  • Redd

  • The Philosopher

    I’m sorry?

  • The Philosopher

    Exactly…

  • Johnny5

    Dumb people officially cannot call normal people morons, stupid, idiot, fool, or anything else that reflects their own low level of intelligence. So, Redd, quite name calling.

    black people all look the same…so do asians…and white people….maybe after like 10 more generations of inter racial breeding we will all just be the same

    idiots…that’s obviously Nelson Mandela

  • Redd

    Quite?

    You done whining idiot?

  • Redd

    Trust me, I could care less lol.

    But see..if you didnt care why would u respond? Lol seems like you’re insecure huh? But I trust me, when I say I’m certain I know more than most seeing as I’ve extensively volunteered for world crisis & worked DWB.

  • Redd

    Trust me, I could care less lol.

    Damn son. That was harsh.

  • Johnny5

    True. From Redd I’ve learned what I won’t allow my son to be when he gets older…a damn fool.

  • Max

    Is it that time of the month again?
    You know,
    Redd? :)

    We must be aware of destiny.
    One cannot tell what shall happen in the future. But we can hope for the best. Try to prepare for the worst. And hope that our children are products of a healthy environment.
    So they may become a positive, productive member of society.

  • Max

    ..

  • Johnny5

    Nobody is interested in your point of view. Is that easier for you to understand? No one views you as an authority on anything. And don’t you mean you “couldn’t” care less? Saying that you “could” care less means you care a lot fool.

  • The Philosopher

    That is too funny. lol.

  • Redd

    Why do u want to continue discussing this tho? Again you’re a insecure flaming idiot who clearly has no life.

    Keep entertaining me tho.

    Don’t know why… but I had to.

  • Redd

    Where a bunch of morons get upset at someone going against status quo? Yeah, and yes you’re 1 of many exclusive morons at the moment.

    :)

  • Redd

    I’m done replying to this nonsense, I don’t support Obama & if someone does GREAT he’s a Bulls fan so good choice.

    If you dislike political commentators, ignore them.

    But don’t be mad someone thinks differently than you do.

  • SkyWalkerTexasRanger

    Dude I’ve read this whole convo and I’m convinced ur retarded.

    You manufactured an issue to complain about and then proceed to do the same thing you b!tched about in the first place.

    You aren’t going against any status quo, ur just being an obnoxious attention seeker. One who doesn’t make any sense.

  • Redd

    I don’t make sense? What has made no sense? The point of Obama stinking?

    Manufactured? I pointed it out that Slam likes posting political things because they know it’ll be discussed, they always do. I was going to state my opinion from the get-go.

    I’m convinced you’re convinced you know wth you’re talking about. If I’m obnoxious ignore me, but like an idiot you’re responding to my opinions because they do hold weight.

  • Lorne

    My man, trust me. You will walk away from any exchange with Redd feeling like your I.Q dropped a few points. He’s that dumb. It’s not worth it.

  • Max

    Appreciate it.
    And I really don’t care about the stuff that Obama does, so I don’t belong in that group allright!

  • Ben Ireland

    As opposed to it being crucial we know George Karl thinks McGee is crazy? None of the info on this site is essential…. We come here because it’s fun and we’re interested IN BASKETBALL AND BASKETBALL-RELATED ACCESSORIES

  • Redd

    Lol, man I’m just tired of people getting mad at me cause I say an opinion.

    People act like what I say has become law, maybe 80%+ of my comments ARE indeed just stupid. Tell me they’re dumb & I know nothing and move on.

    I don’t see myself as all knowing & if I’m wrong I say sorry. I’m not into egos but I also hate when people can’t accept opinions. All these new people act like we only talk Ball here.

  • Ben Ireland

    Anyone who knows me on here knows I only write now and then and I’m always pretty polite. But you sir, are a moron of the highest order.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Obama sux.

  • Zeus

    Man you guys are harsh for getting at Redd like that. Sure he has a dumb blonde moment here and there, but you don’t have to beat him down like that. Sheesh. He’s prolly a harmless young dude just making conversation.

    Some people say all black people look alike, we don’t get bent out of shape, we normally just call those people….police.

  • http://www.facebook.com/qcollingwood Interdico Scriptor

    Here I was thinking I make the dumbest comments!

  • http://www.facebook.com/qcollingwood Interdico Scriptor

    They do look alike. For real, that ain’t racist, it’s just an observation!

  • The Philosopher

    Ben Ireland going in…

  • jeff nwagbo

    They do look alike except for the fact that bill russel is 6 foot 10

  • Redd

    Says the moron.

  • Ben Ireland

    Ouch, got me…
    I’m done with this, you’re literally too stupid to argue with.

  • KBM

    Not everyone’s new here. A lot of us have read comments for a very long time and don’t post very often, if ever.

  • Redd

    But yet you’re stupid enough to argue over a man’s opinion?

    Lol, funny, stupid people are calling me stupid. Because I somehow got into Pre-med with magic. Just shut up.

  • Slick Ric

    lol

  • Mike From Spain

    I would say that a dude with a hat, sunglasses and a bushy beard which covers mostly all his face looks just about like anyone else wearing these.

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    Obama is a pretty horrible human being–you are right about that.
