The Aaron Rodgers vaccine lie exposes Stephen A. Smith and others hypocrisy once again

When the news regarding Aaron Rodgers ,not only testing positive for COVID-19 but also the fact that he had previously lied about his vaccination status, broke I intentionally waited before immediately grabbing my iPad to type an article because I was curious to see what the response from the media, but the sports media in particular, would be, particularly juxtaposed with the response they have had to the Kyrie Irving situation. Sure enough they did not let me down with their response, or lack thereof. The media has had Kyrie…

Kyrie Irving’s vaccination status spawns fake media outrage

Right now Kyrie Irving is the most talked about name in the national basketball Association and unfortunately it has nothing to do with his prodigious on-court exploits.  It has already been publicized ad nauseum that Kyrie is one of the few players in the NBA who has chosen not to undergo the COVID-19 vaccination and because of a vaccine mandate in New York he cannot participate in home games or practices due to his unvaccinated status. The Brooklyn Nets, in showing that they are the player-focused franchise that they are, have…

Giannis and the Milwaukee Bucks: winning the the right way cements a legacy

The Milwaukee Bucks hoisted the Larry O’Brien for the first time in 50 years and dare I say, it was one of the most satisfying championships that I have witnessed in the past several years. Why is that you may ask, and that is because this championship was the culmination of a team building itself up over time to reach this point; it had a feel from an era gone by. As enjoyable as it was seeing Lebron James finally getting that championship gorilla off his back, it was seen…

Sports media has so little to say about Chad Wheeler

It has been over a week since news broke of Chad Wheeler using his girlfriend’s face as a punching bag . Allegedly the former reserve offensive lineman for the Seattle Seahawks beat up his girlfriend for now bowing to him. If you are not that familiar with that the case you, are not alone and that was no accident because the media, and particularly the sports media, has had very little to say about the incident. People like Michelle Beadle, Jamele Hill, and Jenny Taft, to name a few ,…

NBA continues to play its position in diluting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy

As the yearly commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr is upon us and like other holidays -Halloween, Thanksgiving, X-Mas, Valentine’s Day, etc- the NBA never hesitates to incorporate its players into the celebration of those days. I started noticing a few years ago that the NBA’s celebration of Dr. King was just the latest example of the over simplification and the striping down of the legacy and contributions of one of most legendary black men and Americans in history. Before I digress let me clear that I am not…

Will James Harden work in Brooklyn?

I was not a fan of the conceptthat the Rockets needed to trade James Harden. The team still had him under contract and there was intrigue and some hope as how the new pieces John Wall, Christian Wood and DeMarcus Cousins. However once Harden “jumped off the cliff”in that now infamous postgame presser , he painted the Rockets in a corner. The only way the team could avoid having their season completely torpedoed was to ,as expeditiously as possible , sever their ties with the disgruntled star. As we know…

James Harden has announced to the world it’s a wrap in Houston

You can mark January 12,2021 as the day that the relationship between James Harden and the Houston Rockets officially came to an end. After a second consecutive drubbing at the hands of a very jovial Los Angeles Lakers , 117-100, Harden used the postgame presser to subtly and not-so-subtly declare that he was done in Houston. Harden’s comments seemingly did not go over well with still new teammate John wall who had this to say after the game: Wall is absolutely correct. If Harden after just ten games is ready…

A 51-point donkey kicking could only happen to the Clippers

Extremely lopsided defeats are often seen in high school basketball and even college basketball but it is rare to see an nba game where the preseason broadcast lasts longer than the competitive portion of the game itself. Unfortunately for basketball and/or Clippers fans, this was the for their game , and I use that term very loosely. The Clippers were absolutely laid waste to by the Dallas Mavericks 124-73 in a matchup that was settled pretty early on. The Clippers never lead in the ball game and the 4-2 deficit…

Christmas Day NBA takeaways: The Warriors could already be in trouble they cannot get out of

Milwaukee 138, Golden State 99 Another nationally televised game, another trip to the woodshed for the Golden State Warriors. After getting smacked around 125-99 by the Brooklyn Nets, Golden State Warriors chased that by taking a 138-99 shellacking courtesy the Milwaukee Bucks. Just two games in and there some glaring problems for this team. First, they cannot throw the ball in the ocean through the first two games. Against Brooklyn they were ,as a team, connecting on just 37.4% from the floor, including 10-33 from three-point land. They actually shot…

Bleacher Report proves my point

In my piece, NBA Players talk but are they saying what really needs to be said?, one of the points I stressed was the use of the proper words and terms. Negligence in this area does not identify the goal but will also leaves the door open for other groups or entities to come in redefine the terms for their benefit and hijack the energy to achieve their ends. This is why I stressed using the term “anti-black racism” rather than nebulous phrases such as “racial inequality” or “systemic injustice”…
