    Kick him out of football.

    The Sterling and Ferry/Levenson incidents in the NBA show a league that has not tolerance for racist remarks.

    The NFL has a video of one of its employees punching a...
  3. If this is meant to be a conspiracy theory that...

    If this is meant to be a conspiracy theory that benefits the NBA, why is it that the NBA really doesn't profit from this at all?

    Also, why is it in the NBA's interests to placate the wants of an...
  4. Poll: Fundamentally, it lacks perfection - comparing...

    Fundamentally, it lacks perfection - comparing Lebron and Bird isn't comparing a "6" and a "10"; it's comparing two "10's". After all, we're talking about 2 of the best 7-8 players ever. To suggest...
  5. Poll: You seem here, to fall into the habit of...

    You seem here, to fall into the habit of unnecessarily - or outright falsely - denigrating an excellent player, in order to state the case of another excellent player being superior.

    The notion...
  6. Poll: He's the only person in the world who believes...

    He's the only person in the world who believes height isn't a skill?

    But perhaps you're right.........Tim Duncan has just worked harder on his "height skills" than Tony Parker and that's why he's...
  7. Poll: Unfortunate that this had to turn into a debate...

    Unfortunate that this had to turn into a debate about flopping.

    Probably worth addressing that, unfairly or not, Lebron's always going to have his skeptics after his collusion with Wade and Bosh...
  8. Trying to untangle what you've attempted to say...

    Trying to untangle what you've attempted to say in the 2nd half of that last sentence.........but I think Steve Nash would be a name you might look up.
  9. Poll: "You do realized Bird was a notorious playoff...

    "You do realized Bird was a notorious playoff choker at a huge part of his career, right? The dude has some God awful performances."

    Just never heard the words Bird - notorious - playoff - choker...
  10. Poll: I don't think Durant passes him until he shows...

    I don't think Durant passes him until he shows he's elite at more than just scoring - Bird was an elite rebounder and passer.

    You've raised some compelling points, though they largely refute a...
  11. Poll: You could say the same about Bird - regarding...

    You could say the same about Bird - regarding dominating without scoring.

    You can't say the same about Durant that's why he's not in this conversation at this time. It's a two player proposition...
  12. Poll: "FLAT OUT" suggests it isn't even a...

    "FLAT OUT" suggests it isn't even a discussion.......and statistically it is. Look at how eerily similar their stats are - their shooting percentages almost identical, scoring favours Lebron,...
  13. Poll: By "a bunch of times" you mean two. Also, I...

    By "a bunch of times" you mean two.

    Also, I suspect you suggest that the Spurs, Celtics and "maybe Thunder" are better because you've seen them play and didn't see the '81 Sixers, or '86 Hawks...
  14. Poll: The 1981 76ers are better than all of them so...

    The 1981 76ers are better than all of them so were the Lakers in '84.

    Moses Malone - HOF
    Dr. J - HOF
    Bobby Jones - 8x first team all NBA defensive team - probably the best defender of his...

    Sticky: Their midfield is less a worry than their defense...

    Their midfield is less a worry than their defense - perhaps van Gaal is converting Falcao into a centre-back.

    This Lester kid looks like he could be ok - we should think about signing him up.
  17. 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.
    ...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
  20. 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...
  21. Not sure exactly what you're expecting. Burnt in...

    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...
  22. 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...
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
