NBA  > General NBA  > Politically Correct

Wouldn't be great to hear from people like Kareem, Larry Bird, Oscar Robinson and others about what they REALLY think of the recent Miami circus act...come on...a forklift?

No need to hear from Magic, or Barkley...we already know they will be politically correct in thier review....

I have a feeling those older guys are just shaking thier heads wondering what the heck happened to the NBA

Bullcrap.
Since MJ the circus is in town is a good thing.
I do agree that most people don't like the show. but who hyped those kids since they joined the NBA?

The thing here is mostly envy. Ask Miami's old players and they thing this is the best thing since sliced bread.
Of course everyone else will call it a cirtcus... but everyone likes if the circus is on their town... not on someone else's team...

I like what Reggie Miller said right after the signing.

Jordan pretty much went out and said he didn't like it and Barkley, although with TV, said he agreed with Jordans comments.

Obviously MJ won't like.
This kid is beating his HoF speech into being more self-centered! he can't have that!

Jordan earned his right to give his HOF speech however he wants. Lebron earned the right to deserve all of the negative backlash he has received. If he would pretend to be humble and let other people hype him instead of doing it himself, I think it would go along way. Jordan wasn't the most humble person in the world by any means, but Lebron's egocentric b.s. is kind of unprecedented.

perhaps I should have just said "earned all of the negative backlash he has received."

Sorry to all of you literary scholars out there.
