Jack...........Im not taking that in any way other than how you meant it, ie: as a joke..........and I take no offense to it what-so-ever, plus, I like you alot and know you dont roll that way.

But in light of recent accusations/trouble on here...........just imagine for a second if someone said something similar/comparable about a black player? :wink: ...........that person would get there balls ripped off, called a racist and probably banned...............why is that? if it was meant in the same way and would be a joke/bit of fun............just thinking out loud here.


not to bring drama .....fuckdrama...
but bigs you make a great point....
i'll add....
at somepoint in order for change someone / group needs to man up and get over it as a way of leading out of the mess.

i would love a true gentleman conversation on the subject but think this isnt the thread for it.....

I don't know about that. I mean, c'mon, the majority of the NBA could play all black players at the same time since the league is African-dominated so saying something like "Damn, that's a whole lot of black people on the court at the same time!" isn't as bad as saying that but replacing black people with the N word.

But nah seriously guys, cut the racism thinkings out of our talk. It seems every time someone sounds like they said something that could be considered racial ends up becoming a "Watch out or else someone will find you racist for saying that!" If a guy is offended by it, let them say they are. Don't start something up by making yourself look like you're pointing fingers at someone else even though you may not be.

Exactly. Good point, XBay.

Come on, guys. After all the crap this board has been through, you still want more?.

If we all have to be a bit more careful with what we say, ain't that worth it?. Give it a try. You've seen what happens if not.

Thats all Im trying to say damn it!

If people are going to be called out on things that arnt even racist (ie: me, sf and webelieve.........and migya to an extent) then Im just trying to show the hypocrisy of the whole thing when its not about black players.

Jack's comment is taken as a joke, I took it that way atleast, but if it was the other way round (and Xbay, I didnt mean an EXACT comparable statement)............then boy. :agrue:

Ha ha...I missed most of the game live due to lame airport delays. I listened to the first half and the watched the second half that I had recorded when I got home.

Matt played well, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's not just a temporary thing and that we are getting our bench back!

Oh and Joel...I SOOOOO wish I was there stroking his...uh ego...as you say :mrgreen:

I know you were saying that Bigs! it's all good...

I guess that was my immediate reaction that there was any general chatter about it at all, not directed at anyone in particular...
I would have quoted you if I meant that for you directly...

I don't know if it was mentioned before or in another thread, but I love it when the oracle erupts after Marco sinks a 3. It happened in the Jail Blazer game and another game that he got some PT in garbage time earlier this year. IMO it shows how knowledgeable warrior fans are and along with moments like when the fans went crazy when Foyal got some PT in the Mavs series last post season - has become a staple of our fan base. Not sure what else it really says about warrior fans but I think it's pretty cool and not common among other fan bases.

I love that Kelenna is getting time and coming in aggressive! Then Barnes with great comeback game. With Wright and Croshere providing some energy. It would be great to see Marco come in for some clutch 3's here and there.
