    This Lester kid looks like he could be ok - we should think about signing him up.
  2. No - it isn't a "last straw" or a...

    No - it isn't a "last straw" or a "caught-red-handed".

    Read some court depositions from Sterling's career as a discriminating landlord - they're completely full of all sorts of abject bigotry.

  3. This is what they're doing - preventing him from...

    This is what they're doing - preventing him from being an owner........they can't just wave a wand and make it happen yesterday. It might take some time.

    As regards your belief that this isn't...
  4. Careful with this line of inquiry; it's not like...

    Careful with this line of inquiry; it's not like Sterling was a choirboy until 4 days ago.

    It's been a pretty well documented fact for a long while that Sterling had racial views that would have...
  5. You've still not said what you feel would be...

    You've still not said what you feel would be appropriate.

    The NBA has bylaws that establish things like maximum fines, punishments, etc., so he was only ever going to get fined a certain (for...

    Not sure exactly what you're expecting. Burnt in a public square? Tortured? Publicly flogged?

    Suggestions?

    He's an abject person, who has expressed abject opinions - none of these things are...
  7. Your "context" is a bit melodramatic - a...

    Your "context" is a bit melodramatic - a plantation owner who regarded his players as the black slaves............well, if there's a form of slavery that allows me to work 8 months a year with union...
  8. Why not a similar lifetime ban and 2.5 million...

    Why not a similar lifetime ban and 2.5 million dollar fine. If the league is serious about racism etc., shouldn't everyone get punished equally?
  9. So the league has dealt harshly with an old, rich...

    So the league has dealt harshly with an old, rich racist - and they got him pretty good.

    I'll be interested to see the ripple effect here - since I can think of two instances within the last...

    Though I haven't looked at the numbers, this is Lester's best April that I can remember.

    We ought to look into signing the kid.

    I'm about as big a Bird fan as there is, but if I had to choose Kobe or Bird to check my opponent's 6-7-ish scorer, there's no doubt I use Kobe. Quick, rangy, dirty - two over three on Bird there.

    As usual, Chuck is good for bombast, short or accuracy.

    Up until 1986 Bobby Jones would have checked Bird and vice-versa.

    After 86, Bird would have guarded Rod Anderson, or whatever stiff was...
  13. From '03 - '08 Bird and Kobe is the conversation....

    From '03 - '08 Bird and Kobe is the conversation.

    Bird's a better rebounder and (much) better passer. Kobe far exceeds Bird as a defender and is a better scorer.
    When it comes to "intangibles"...

    There's no confusion here - I (still) disagree with your use of the word "soft".

    I never took issue with quality of defense - you can go back and actually read my post and you'll see that I said...
  15. I generally agree with much of what you've said,...

    I generally agree with much of what you've said, except the bolded bit.

    While they did score more during the '80's, there's nothing about that time that I would call "soft". These were...

    Completely agree.

    Once Sam starts wearing eye-black with "Gay Pride" written on it, we can then start making the Tebow comparisons.

    Otherwise, Sam is just a guy saying I'm a football player...

    "Would you want your wife showering next to a gay male?".................Since my wife's work doesn't entail her showering with anyone, I don't much think about this "problem" - do you?

    The context hasn't changed; it's exactly the same. I've just suggested replacing race with sexual orientation. Someone "different" comes into a locker room and a bunch of guys have got to deal with...

    Here's your litmus test - re-read your post and replace the word "gay" with the word "black" (and "homophobic" in paragraph 2 with "racist".)

    Then take your post back in time 60 years and see how...

    I'm a Red Sox fan, and even I find your thinking to be a product of the paranoid school.

    When have the Yankees needed the help of MLB to induce them to spend more money than any other team?

    There's "being singled out" and then there's "choosing to single yourself out".

    A-Rod chose the latter - now he's enjoying the consequences.
  22. Either you're completely off topic or don't...

    Either you're completely off topic or don't understand it.

    This thread, at least, isn't about MLB - it's about the players' association. This has nothing to do with MLB or the Yankees.

    Selig isn't a likable figure by any stretch, nor do his actions in this case seem particularly ethical.
    You, however, seem to have a particularly keen antipathy for the guy. Which is your own...

    I'd have to check but they may have done it with Steve Howe for his violations of league (recreational) drug policy back in the '80's.
  25. The problem with calling this a "witch hunt" is...

    The problem with calling this a "witch hunt" is that the term it totally and completely inaccurate and is nothing more than an attempt to inflame the situation and make A-Rod look like a victim.
