    Joe Ingles of Utah has a unique skill set.....
    For someone that has boycotted the NBA for years, I don’t know a lot of these guys...
    Great passer, hops, good size and vision....

    Don't forget to try and watch another super young player by the name of L. Markkenen.

    Hayward finished up that Warriors game with a team high 30 points in a big win. Last night he followed it up with a game winning fade away shot as the Celtics beat the Kings on the road. Without Irving. They have won I believe 8 srtaight games when Irving doesn't play. Makes you think.

    Happy to see Hayward back to his stellar form. It's been a long road back with that serious injury. He has the Celtics ready for the playoffs.

    Doncic had another nice game last night. It's seems like he does this almost every time he steps on the floor. He had 31 pts, 10 rebounds and
    7 assists. The kid is just amazing. When he is playing basketball it is truely Luka "Magic".

    Dirk dropped 15 points last night. He needs 40 points over the last 17 games to pass Wilt Chamberlain for 6th on the alltime scoring list. Looking down the list, it’s apparent that Dirk will remain number 6 for at least 5 years before guys like Durant and Harden have a shot at him.

    Yes, indeed. While looking at the NBA scores a couple of days ago, I ran across the box score for Luke Kennard of the Detroit Pistons where he had scored 26 points in around 20 minutes coming off the bench! Kennard, just 21 years old is in his second season with Detroit was allowed to start a few games last season and performed really well. He has started 10 games this year and seems to be coming on of late scoring, 14, 21, 19, 26, 8, 19, and 17 over his last seven games. Maybe, just maybe he might not have to serve a seven year racial apprenticeship like others such as JJ Redick, Joe Harris among others have had to do. I believe he could be a better scorer than Redick. Kennard is quicker and just an all round better athlete Redick.
    Also, wasn't Kennard the player who broke Lebron's Ohio HS all time scoring record?

    Only 3/21 White American players. Proof that the caste system is a powerful psychological weapon.

    Just turned on the Indiana-Philadelphia game. The Pacers are wearing the Hickory High uniforms from the movie "Hoosiers". Red on the top, yellow on the bottom. And they say "Hickory", not "Pacers". They look great.

    Bogdanovich, Sabonis, and Reddick are all having decent games.

    Kevin Heurter of the Atlanta Hawks has 24 pts mid way through the 3rd quarter. This kid is so athletic and fun to watch!

    Russell Westbrook continues raging against White fans and players, with a total pass from the league and the media. Most recently, he threatened to “**** up” a Utah fan and his wife. Last week, Jusef Nurkic was jogging up the court and Westbrook launched into him and knocked him down because their feet had slightly tangled and Westbrook thought he tried to trip him. Before that was the incident where an 8 year old boy touched Westbrook’s elbow while he was out of bounds - Westbrook spun around and glares at the kid and then confronted the father like a psycho. Of course last year’s playoffs he got into it with a fan and swiped at his phone because he was video recording.

    All of the above incidents are directed at Whites. He clearly has hatred and anger issues.

    Of course, he is claiming the Utah fan made a “racial” taunt. 80% of the league is black - NOBODY is attending the games and making racial taunts. If you don’t like blacks or black culture, you stay as far away from an NBA game as possible. Also, even in an all White country club, Whites are afraid to make a racial slur, because of the relentless programming and social stigma.

    The question that should be asked: out of the 400 black players in the NBA, why is Westbrook the only one repeatedly raging at fans. Why is he the only one that received a “racial” taunt?

    You've got this correct, my friend. I have not paid a penny to see an NBA or NFL game since the 1990's and never, ever will again. I've only attended 3 NFL games (2 pre-season and had free tickets to 2 games) and 2 or 3 NBA games, but those were huge mistakes that I will never repeat. I will never even buy a cheap hat or T-Shirt with an NBA logo. So, I agree with you, what racially aware white would ever go see a NBA at all? I would not even go to the NBA Finals (first row) if provided free tickets. Only way I'd ever consider going to NFL or NBA games, perhaps, is if I was generously compensated.

    Nearest NBA team from me is about 75 miles. Nearest NFL team is an even longer ride. I think the starting point, would be me being payed $400 dollars to go to an NBA game, plus travel expenses. It would have to be a night game and once there, I would never utter a word. What could be gained from taunting someone with a 75 IQ or less and likely violent temperament?

    Few years ago a business acquaintance offered me free, front row tickets to a pretty much all black NFL team in a new stadium. I very politely refused, claiming "I was busy" that day. He offered for other Sundays, so I had to politely say "actually it's too far away anyway, I hate being stuck in traffic". For the NFL, I'd have to give up an entire Sunday to get to the Stadium at 1:00 pm. I'd probably have to leave at 9:00 am and, realistically, would not get back (due to traffic) until about 7:30 pm. That's over 10 hrs. I'd demand at least $30 per hr. Plus compensation for being exposed to retarded DWF's for 4 or 5 hrs. at the stadium (tack on another $100, at least). Plus car and gas expenses. I'd say I would need to be paid $475 (at least) to attend an NFL game.

    Again, my point is, I believe you 100%. No racially aware white worth anything would ever go to an NBA game, let alone pay a large sum to attend. So the racial taunting stuff is probably all bull$hit in the mind of a very low IQ black racist, who's just trying to please his virulently anti-white master Adam Silver. Former NBA commissioner David Stern was also Jewish, but unlike Massa Silver, he'd never allow very low IQ types to abuse paying costumers. Truth is, NBA teams make so much from TV and marketing (plus claim to make a fortune from China) that they probably don't need to care about white costumers anymore.

    Thanks, Dixie.

    Here's a link (with video) which shows NBA star Russell Westbrook threatening the fan and his young wife. Honestly, I have no idea what Westbrook's IQ is, but after watching that clip, how could anyone come away thinking he is a sane, intelligent adult? Sounds like the rantings of an out of control, chronic problem child. Adam Silver did hand down a fine, but a $25k fine for someone with a $207 million contract is farcical! Would be tantamount to fining a police officer $45 for seriously threatening/abusing families that he's paid to protect. Who, by the way, pay his salary via taxes.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/spor...ed-threatening-jazz-fan-fans-wife/3139236002/

    Seems like there is also disagreement as to what the fan said. Fan claims it was nothing bad; Westbrook claims he was viciously racially harassed. Of course, Jazz' young star comes out against "racist fans" in Utah who pay his salary.

    As far as the fan, the Jazz did him a huge favor banning him from the arena going forward. Now he can use the money he foolishly spent on NBA games on himself, his wife and family. Instead of watching and supporting moronic fools (that despise him because he's white) being paid $42 mill per year to chase around a orange ball, he can use that cash in more productive ways -- put food on the table, buy shoes and clothing, pay off his house or pay rent, put money away for himself and children, ect. I think after a few years of "being banned" he'll openly thank the Utah Jazz for not stealing his money.

    One last point: Several years back (last decade) the wife of baseball "pioneer" Jackie Robinson, Rachel Robinson (who is probably close to 100 years old currently), went on ESPN Sunday's Night Baseball and bemoaned the dwindling number of black players and black fans in baseball. At one point she said something amazing that I think every idiot white attending NBA and NFL games should listen to. Don't remember every word verbatim, but she said something like this: "If fans don't see enough athletes that look them on the field, you can't blame them for not going to games or watching games on TV". Thank you Mrs. Robinson. Could not have said it better myself!

    I guess Domantas Sabonis is going to have to play second fiddle to Myles Turner unless he gets traded. Sabonis has turned in another great game off the bench! Sabonis has scored 26 points in 27 minutes/ 7 rebounds and 3 assists. Meanwhile, Turner has 10 points/6 rebounds and 2 assists in 31 minutes in the starting role. For the season Sabonis is averaging almost a double/double per game, 14/9 while shooting 60% from the field in 24.7 minutes/game. Turner in the starting role is averaging 13/7 while shooting 49% in 28.5 minutes/game. They could move Sabonis to the starting PF position in place of the great Thaddeus Young averaging a whopping 12/6 per game in 31 minutes!
    I guess the Pacers can't have Sabonis and Bogdanovic both starting. That would be one too many honkeys on the floor at the same time. They let McDermott or TJLeaf in the game with Sabonis and Bogdanovic at the same time there would be a riot in Indianapolis!

    Can you say Rookie of the Year? Even though the season isn't over yet it would be a tragedy if Luka Doncic didn't win the award. He got snubbed from the nba all star
    game and it better not happen again. Tonight yet again another triple double. He had 29 pts, 13 rebounds & 10 assists! Even though Dallas continues to lose we are in
    for a treat next year when K.Porzingis starts along with Doncic and with Kleber coming off the bench. This team will be fun to watch!

    I have to say I'm shocked but the Phoenix Suns signed Jimmer Fredette to a new 2 year contract. Jimmer has been lighting it up in China scoing 75 pts in one game and usually scoring between
    30 to 40 pts on a regular basis. Fredette is 30 now and should have been in the nba for around a decade but got the nba's version of the TimTebow Treatment. The kid can shoot as good as
    Steph Curry who also doesn't play much defense yet has won the mvp and titles. The same could have possibly happened for Fredette but they don't like good morman boys do they? I think
    he might be a good fit for this team as the Valley of the Sun/Phx Area of AZ, has alot of mormans that live there. Either way the kid can flat out play. Happy to see him back in the nba starting
    next season. Here is the link guys.

    Freddette should have been in the NBA ever since he left BYU. What a complete disgrace.
