These are the comments of Jesse Jackson: Jackson says Gilbert's comments
"personify a slave master mentality" and the owner should face a
"challenge" from the league.
Jesse stay in your lane. Yes, Gilbert was upset because his star player left, I understand that, but this has nothing to do with race. And you had to take it there. At what point did Gilbert appear to be racist? Not ever did he criticize LeBron James for being black or anything related. If the owner was black, you would
have never opened your mouth. Better yet, if the owner was black and
the player was Larry Bird for instance, you would have no problem with
the comments. In fact, you may have supported the owner and criticized
Bird for leaving the city. The entire city of Cleveland is mad at
LeBron because of all the people who depend on him solely to make a
living for themselves. Does a racism still exist? Unfortunately yes.
However, you need to get your facts straight and stop making
accusations when there obviously are no facts to support your case.
It's the talk on Dallas Radio and only Blacks are making it a racial matter. Stop the madness this was a business decision and nothing else. It's not black or white, it's Green or Ring and LaBron chose the ring.

Ok first of all, Lebron going to the Heat reminds me of Washington paying all the stars and still not getting to the Super Bowl. How will that last and are there enough balls to go around? I'm just glad that he is not in the west. You have 3 shooters in the same offense, the coach has a challenge, but it is a good challenge. So does that take Boston out of the mix for an automatic finals showing? Or does the fact that Boston signed O'Neal allow Boston to still be in contention. Is Miami now the best team in the East?
Now, lets talk about the Mavericks who will bring back the same team. How do you get excited about the up and coming season when they don't make any changes? As a Mavericks fan, I am not happy. I want the Mavericks to make a splash and they don't even have water to splash. Each team in this area has made a big splash. The Cowboys went to get Charles Haley and Deion Sanders, the Stars picked UP BRENDEN MORROW, MIKE MADONO, EVEN THE RANGERS PICKED UP A-ROD. WHEN ARE THE MAVERICKS GOING TO GET IN MIX? I'M TIRED OF SEEING EVERY OTHER TEAM WIN THE JACKPOT!!

We know it's time for football, because we keep saying the first place Rangers who is now 48-34. I keep saying to wait until the all-star break. To be honest the Rangers look better than they have in years. So I reserve my commits for another blog.
Which is the bigger watch the Labron watch or the Farve watch. Who is going to keep us in suspense longer, my vote is Farve. Why can't the Mavericks get into this free agent fight. Yes, I know they locked Dirk in for 4 more years, but they need another fighter. Dirk is a great player, but the Mavericks need that player with the killer instinct to go along with Dirk, and this free agency period is the perfect time. And please don't bring in Shaq and say we hit the jackpot. Put a killer player around Dirk, don't go to sleep this time. We would love to see a Wade and Dirk combination, especially since reports have Chris Bosh going to Cleveland and James might be staying there.
Is it football season yet? please come soon.
