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”…

The Pacquiao camp says McGregor bout being considered

Despite his comments to the affirmative earlier on Friday, a Conor McGregor v Manny Pacquiao match is not set in stone. Representatives for legendary boxer Manny Pacquiao said Friday that he is considering a bout with MMA star Connor McGregor, and that it would be a “tremendous global event.” Gibbons confirmed the two sides were a “long way” from coming to terms on a fight but that “it is (definitely) one of the fights being considered for the Senator’s return in 2020.” Pacquiao, 41, has not been in the ring…

So now Lebron hates narratives?

Lebron James made it perfectly clear that he was less than happy with the share of MVP votes he received and of course it made headlines across the sporting world. However the overwhelming majority of sports outlets are lazy and /or don’t let facts get in the way of a good story, ceased their “reporting” of his statement at that point. If they did, they would have found that Lebron made several salient and ironic points. Lebron discussed the 2013 DPOY award/vote, something thar seems to still be a sore…

NBA Players talk but are they saying what really needs to be said?

In my last of common sense sports talk, I took the NBA to task for their blatantly insincerity as it relates to the fight against anti-black racism. In this edition I must deal with the players and what they are saying, what they aren’t saying and perhaps what they should not be saying. A lot of NBA players have talking on some societal issues like never before and some have spoken passionately, others from a fear-based perspective, and yet some have said a lot and yet nothing at the same…
