Triple Play    

Salley,
The 1980's are over and so are you. You had the good fortune to play with real ballers and they carried you on their backs. You are a fool and that show that you are on is a joke.

i competely agree with number 3. i mean come on... look at the ridiculous response regarding the cover of vogue issue with lebron james and geisel bundchen...the black community made such a big deal over nothing. i'm far from being a racist but i am willing to bet if, this was anyway aimed toward the black community, it would be a different story and he would have a different reaction. correct? yes, hands down. CORRECT.

I think it's time for Yao Ming to come to an NBA game with painted black skin. "We thought it was appropriate, and the idea was conceived as a friendly gesture; it was never offensive" is what he should say, as the Spanish basketballer said.

I wonder if 'funny is funny' when racist spanish soccer fans start doing monkey chants and throwing bananna peels at African players.

I kinda wonder how funny it would be if the Spanish team was wearing dashikis and had spears in their hands.
