Last night there was a firestorm set off around America when George Zimmerman was found not guilty. People all over the country took to social media and let their feelings be known. Most of these feelings were people’s instant reactions and made them look like idiots when they actually aren’t (i.e. Victor Cruz). One athlete bit his tongue though and kept his personal opinion...

Pick 50: James Ennis- SG- Long Beach State
