Horace Grant is an Assh**e, Says LeBron’s Heat ‘Wouldn’t Have Had a Chance’ Against Jordan’s Bulls

aagrant
After LeBron James led the Heat to the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive year, Pacers coach Frank Vogel called James “the Michael Jordan of our era,” and the Heat “the Chicago Bulls of our era.” James said he was “humbled” by the comparison.

The Miami Heat are four wins away from becoming the second team since Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls to win three consecutive NBA titles, but is Miami a better team than the six-time champion Bulls of the 1990s? 

It’s clear that basketball fans and players love nothing more than discussing which historic team would win a hypothetical matchup. Former Chicago Bulls forward Horace Grant cast the first stone in the Chicago-Miami debate by saying that Jordan’s Bulls wouldn’t have any trouble with LeBron. Grant joined WSCR in Chicago and made it clear that the Bulls would roll over the two-time defending champs.

“The Heat wouldn’t have had a chance. We would have locked them up. We would have locked them up. Especially with the rules today, Michael would have had a field day.”

Although Grant is entirely entitled to his opinion, it remains just that…an opinion. And just like the old saying goes: Opinions are like assh***s, everybody’s got one – and Horace Grant is a big one.

Michael Jordan: ‘I Was Against All White People’

aajordan1

In his new biography aptly titled Michael Jordan: The Life, his Royal Airness reveals that he considered himself a racist when he was a teenager.

Jordan describes in the book how he threw a soda on a woman who dropped the n-word on him. “Basically, I was against all white people.”

Jordan later discovered tolerance through the realization that white folks buy sneakers too.

Michael Jordan: The Life hit bookstores this week.

NBA Dropping the Ball With Racist Owner

aasterlingWe think it’s agreed across the NBA that players, coaches, owners and fans want Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling gone from the game after his paramour/nurse released his racist comments to TMZ over the weekend.

However, this is not an issue for new commissioner Adam Silver to decide. Silver works for the other owners in that league of greed and, while they have no problem dropping fines on Mark Cuban for bitching about a foul, they’ve let this Clipper Klansman spout his ignorant bullshit for 34 years while turning his team into a complete joke.

Sterling’s history of bigotry is well documented and the slum lord has been sued in the past for unfair renting practices, wrongful termination and discrimination on the basis of race. This has all been public knowledge in and out of the NBA and the league has done nothing. 

Silver has a press conference planned for Tuesday and will address the media. I think we all know how that will go: An investigation, talks of sanctions, condemning words, blah blah blah. Meanwhile, this 80-year-old racist will rake in millions from Clippers playoff games. Do you really think the NBA is going to take the team away from him? These good ol’ boys stick together. There’s a reason that Michael Jordan is the only minority owner in a sport that has been predominantly black for decades. 

aamagic1Magic, BarkleyLeBron, Snoop Dogg and President Obama can condemn the words while the Clippers wear their warmups inside out in some sort of wardrobe protest, but that accomplishes nothing. Want to really make a statement? Want to really make a difference? Want all those headlines you know and love, NBA players? Refuse to play for him. Refuse to play against him. Refuse to play in a league that allows him. Make a statement. Hit Sterling and all the owners that kept him in the league for over three decades where it hurts – the wallet. If the players across the league want to really show their “outrage” don’t play another playoff game until this plantation owner is sent packing.

We always hear that it’s a “players league” and now is the opportunity to prove it. It’s time for the players themselves to step up and take action beyond wearing black socks. This goes beyond basketball.

Michael Jordan ‘Disgusted’ With LA Clippers Owner Donald Sterling

aajordanNBA legend and Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan usually likes to keep his name out of any controversy especially when it comes to race. Jordan has taken heat in the past for not lending his voice to African-American issues and once infamously said, “White people buy shoes, too.” 

However, the recent racist remarks by LA Clippers bigot Donald Sterling has brought on the wrath of his Airness.

Jordan, the NBA’s only minority owner, released this statement today: 

“As an owner, I’m obviously disgusted that a fellow team owner could hold such sickening and offensive views.

 I’m confident that Adam Silver will make a full investigation and take appropriate action quickly.

As a former player, I’m completely outraged. There is no room in the NBA – or anywhere else – for the kind of racism. I am appalled that this type of ignorance still exists within our country and at the highest levels of our sport.

In a league where the majority of players are African-American, we cannot & must not tolerate discrimination at any level”

(VIDEO) LeBron James Stares Down Michael Jordan On Dunk

King James gave his royal Airness the thousand mile stare on a breakaway dunk Saturday. Just another example why today’s NBA sucks. No respect.

What a tough guy, rubbing it in a 50-year-old man’s face. Let’s hope somewhere in the space-time continuum that 1991 Jordan is getting in his DeLorean and is headed this way to kick Baby James’ ass.
