http://sports.yahoo.com/news/commish-adam-sil... Even if Time Magazine doesn't select NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, there's no doubt in my mind that he strongly deserves it. I mean, he didn't just 'beat' Donald Sterling, he TKO'd him. Now the whole planet knows about this, and you know why??! Because someone has to take the lead in addressing racial hate, bias, and bigotry. And, look, I'm just being REAL: Many people tend to think about the KKK and Aryan Nation and Skinheads when people think about racism and bigotry, but it doesn't matter which gender of which race stands out the most: Racial hate and ignorance and bigotry can be found in all races of people. And the hate and ignorance will continue. But the REALITY is....there are some 'stages' in life were racial hate and stupidity and evil can not be tolerated. Just keepin' it REAL.

You know...if Donald Sterling had voiced an opinion on that audiotape about, say, young black males throwing their lives away with crime and drugs, and he had expressed a degree of dislike and disdain for such black people, I could kinda' understand why he would feel that way. But....we're talking about insults directed at......MAGIC JOHNSON. Yes, Magic Johnson. He's done so much and accomplished so much, and helped so many many many people through charities....and for this MAN to speak of him, to treat him like he was some common slave on a plantation is just.....lower than dirt. Mark Cuban...you and the rest of those rich boys MUST remove this CANCER from America's professional basketball league. 4 R-E-A-L.

I wonder if the NBA is going to start assessing 15 yard penalties like the NFL for use of the n word.
