Does it not seem that the same Rap type of persona has deeply engulfed the game of Basketball, and is seeping into other sports as well. The NBA (Nothing But Assholse), has become nothing more than a large congregation of uneducated, street punks, making way to much money, and having never had any, it shows in the direction with which they spend and play. Professional athletes once were images to young men that could be counted on to be good role models, now it seems they would be better suited as model prisoners. Most of the NBA players seem to not have enough respect for themselves, so how in the world are they going to respect other players or fans. Wallace, though an instigator, received way to many games as a suspension in comparison to the others handed out. Every player that went across the imaginary line seperating the court from the stands should be suspended for the season, and why has nobody mentioned the action of the Pacer assistant coach who took a man down and began punching him, this man should be banned from the NBA as a coach. It all began with Rodman, the antics etc....and when Sprewell was allowed to return to the game, after as we should remeber, threating the life of a coach, the game has gone to the pisser....let's all watch College Hoops, much more exciting, and hey, these guys are not millionaires, as yet anyway.
