    Who knows how or who set this up. Millions of dollars maybe billions cause people to do some crazy stuff. Hell he might have planned it himself for some reason...

    They did? I missed that one.

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch, we now know you can't say anything - ever - that may hurt anyone's feelings because it will incite widespread hysteria. I can assume that it will include not saying things in private about anyone - white, black, Jewish, Indian, Asian, female, Christian, Polish, Italian, Russian, etc. etc. etc.

    Me too! The Blacks have a propensity for hating White folks for a variety of reasons..

    Yup. That's why I said it was the elephant in the room. I think the old coot, who probably keeps his penis in a jar of formaldehyde to keep it alive, saw those pics of her & Magic, knowing Magic wanted to buy them, and he blew up about it.

    And it was said in private. No one should have ever heard that.

    NBA basketball is such a sad league that their biggest news story of the year has nothing to do with basketball. :

    I mentioned her because it's not the first time a league has come down on an owner for their beliefs or what they've said.
    The argument I keep seeing is based on free speech. Marge Schott also was exercising her free speech.

    It should get the GF in mucho legal trouble.

    Her alibi of "he wanted me to tape our conversations" is thin.

    I can honestly say that if this does turn out to be some sort of elaborate set up,(which I seriously doubt that it is) I would feel even better about the ending to the story. This man has earned every single bit of humiliation and shame that is being heaped upon him.
