I am white. Too many of my musings require that disclaimer these days. But there it is, I am white. Therefore I have no idea how it felt as a black family to see Allen Iverson, braided and brash and black as dice craters snarl and spin his way to an MVP award.
I hate the idea of having an ad put on the left chest of an NBA jersey. The Boston Celtics have agreed to place a General Electric patch on their sacred uniforms. Of all the NBA teams, I would’ve guessed that the Celtics would resist the patch — until Adam Silver threw down his quiet money-filled hammer to force the Celtics into putting some sort of ridiculous patch on the hallowed Boston jersey.
Mid July usually signifies the beginning of the most boring parts of the off season. All big name free agents have found new homes, staff positions have been filled, the dust has truly settled. So when the NBA summer league begins, it’s easy to sink your teeth into it. It’s easy to over analyze, it’s easy to put value in what you’re seeing, but you shouldn’t. The summer league is not insider trading, don’t buy your stocks on these prospects just yet.
