In addition to my fractured knee healing, last week I got some kind of bug. Aches all over, fever for most of the week, felt like a fire was burning behind my eyeballs. I was a veritable slug most of the week.
Have been watching this NBA kerfuffle out of the corner of my eye with detached bemusement. These calls to strip him of ownership of the team if it turns out he did make the alleged racist comments (in a private conversation) are laughable. If the league wants to censure him in some way I guess that's their prerogative. But by what "legal" basis could he be forced to sell his interests in the team?
Let me be very clear: I have no use for racists or racism. I pretty much loathe the entire human race without regard for race, creed, religion, or sexual preferences. If one doesn't like this guy's alleged comments don't watch his team. Don't advertise at his team's arena or on broadcasts of his team's games. Don't play for or coach his team.
All this furor is over something that was said (or thought). Doesn't this cause anyone concern?
