Straight out of the Newt Gingrich racist white man’s play book, it wasn’t bad enough David Stern did the unthinkable and called the public’s attention to high school benchwarmer Barack Obama’s poor basketball skills, he went and blew the proverbial Conservative dog whistle on POTUS and the Association.

That said, it is great to hear a “nigga, please” instead of Rachel Ray talk about a 15-minute lasagna.

Stephen A. Smith and ESPN think we forgot the fool-me idiom. Shame on them.
For the second time in less than a year, the black beard paid to mask Skip Bayless' blatant negro-baiting uttered "N-word, please" on a national-television platform allegedly reserved for non-profane, professional discussion.

THINGS TURNED OUT WELL
Dwight Howard admitted in a recent interview that when the Magic began looking to trade him, he originally hoped that he would end up in Brooklyn with the Nets.
Oh what a last few days of sports it has been. No, I’m not talking about the World Series, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers putting a hurting on the Minnesota Vikings on the road on a Thursday night game when a certain someone decided to get cute and take the Vikings moneyline, or David Stern announcing that he’ll retire in 2014. Instead I’m talking about all the dumb athletes and...
