bigolegeek said: I'm curious to your thoughts on the Atlanta Hawks owner having to sell the team after a racist statement he made in an email in 2012? I'm not surprised at all because when you make that much money and influence you feel you can say certain things or do certain things and it not come back to haunt you. I'm almost certain he was shitting a brick when the Donald Sterling issue hit hoping that this email would never see the light of day.

For anyone who hasn’t seen this. Here is the email
Here is his resignation letter

This is crazy. I just read the entire email and to be 100% honest, I didn’t think the vast majority of he wrote was racist. The only thing that went over the line to me was him asking for white cheerleaders because they were alll Black. That was unacceptable. Oh yeah… the kiss cam thing was over the line too. 

Everything else he wrote was just shrewd business. He even mentioned that the bigoted fears of white people was causing them to stay away. 

In my personal opinion, the tone of his email was like, “Yo… .white people are scared of Black people. Our games are REALLY black. Is there any way we can diversify things to raise our lagging sales? Here are my suggestions”. 

To repeat, I think the cheerleader and kiss cam things were over the line. The rest was ok. 

Even though he said some things that were fucked up. I never got the feeling that this guy doesn’t like Black people or that his words came from a hateful place. 

PAUL GEORGE BROKE HIS LEG OMG

PAUL GEORGE BROKE HIS LEG OMG

Cleveland possiby trading Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love puts pressure on the team to win now.

As the roster currently stands, nobody really thinks Cleveland has a shot at beating anyone in the west. There’s no pressure because people understand that the young guys need to come along. It’s basically a free year to grow and learn with reasonable expectations.

Trading for Love wipes all of that out. Its championship or bust for a team with an overhauled roster and a rookie coach. 

That’s not the wave. 

A lot of sports fans on twitter are clowning Miami for signing Granger, but I like Danny a lot as a player. 

He lost his job on the Pacers because he got injured, and in that timeframe of being injured Paul George emerged as a star and took his spot. When Granger got healthy there just wasn’t room for him anymore chemistry wise.

Then he went to the Clippers mid-season and never really fit in. 

Dude can play. I think he can flourish on the heat. He’s definitely an upgrade from Chalmers/Beasley etc

Dwyane Wade Has Been Lazy And Indifferent On Defense

It’s relatively easy to look at the stat sheet and discern that Dwyane Wade had an off night offensively in Miami’s Game 4 loss against the Spurs Thursday – just 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting – but he he was even worse on defense. This video does a tremendous job breaking down just how bad Wade was in the first three games.. It encapsulates the entire Finals thus far and shows Wade jogging back down the floor on several occasions, triple-teaming the ball while his man rolls free, and being too late to adjust.

I’d love to play meaningful minutes. It’s just that my body is at a point where it takes a process for me to get physically ready to play and a process for me to recover. It’s just not worth going through all of that to play a minute or two in a blowout. Greg Oden, Teaching Greg Oden How To Be A Benchwarmer
