More basketball related, but move it or sue me.  I don't care despite what the sign out front says.

I have never been a fan of ESPN's, Screamin' A. Smith. Not because of his views, but the abrasive, loud delivery.  I know it's his schtick but it's always chaffed my undies.  Lately, ESPN has given him more of a prominent role in actual games and broadcasting rather than him just being an opinion mouthpiece.  He had a huge part in the recent NBA playoffs and when he's not taking on his screaming, in your face persona and is discussing sports calmly and rationally, he's not too bad.  So speaking of the NBA, I caught this little blurb about NBA commissioner, Adam Silver, saying they were no longer going to use the term, "Owner" when talking about the....well....owners.  Yep, you guessed it.  It could be deemed offensive in a league where 75% of the players are black.  Stephen A's response:

"It's my house! I own it! I don't own you, but I own it! The idiocy! Politically correct world we're living in. We have to literally have a discussion to the point it becomes a media story line. Oh my God! An owner says he owns his team, that's offensive to people. Y'all are smoking crack!" he said. "Something is wrong with you people. What the hell has this world come to?!" 

Thank you, Screamin' A. 
Boy, giraffes are selfish.  Just running around, looking out for #1....getting hit by lightning.....

Re: Kudos
You know it's a ridiculously ignorant topic when a racist like him is against it.
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.
