Shocked is an understatement. More like horrified.

Plain ole Joe living the life of luxery please try to get him to comment on anything so the rest of can feel better about our knowledge. Ole Joe deserves to be dumped just like Blagojevich he is crooked and so is his son, get some journalist on th story or must we wait until Fitzgerald cleans Illinois before Deleware gets tackled?

After all "Del Negro" in Spanish means "of the black" and there are a disproportionate number of colored people in the NBA. What better way for a new coach to relate to the thugs in the Professional ranks than by name association.
It really shows the lengths someone like you will go to when they have to compete with a black person for a job. Not going to well is it? Obviously it is frustrating and humiliating when you are forced to compete with someone that is obviously underneath you and you aren't winning the battle! It's not fair! They are probably using IQ scores and brains isn't quite your forte. Maybe a big bright red nose and really big shoes would help your career?
