    This racism talk is ridiculous, honestly... Now someone's going to interview Laimbeer to ask what he thinks of Dumars - maybe that's why he was so quiet? Every coach he's hired is white. He's been criticized for going EURO too often, then making the best move going forward. It just turns out some of the foreign players haven't worked out - Dumars in my mind is extremely progressive and has no preference from what I can see to black or white - he just wants hungry players, and if some of the Euro players haven't fit the bill, so be it...

    What a dumb thread this is, and if every team is going to go through this for trading a few white players and keeping the rest of their black players, this is going to go on and on... What about getting rid of Cliff Robinson, Mike James, Corliss Williamson...

    Anyways, looking forward to the draft...

    Chick Hearn said for years, that he thought that they should widen the court, but the problem is that would mean taking away the most expensive court side seats.

    It would open up the game though by widening the court especially if they widened the 3 point lane to something like the European lane.

    I would also like to see them add a foot or two to behind the basket. Some of the most exciting plays start from the baseline.

    hlbimage & tosher,

    It's ok to have a dialogue in this thread because we're a mature and responsible community.

    Please refrain from calling for threads to be deleted or referring to them as dumb. It's disrespectful to the people here having an intelligent discussion.

    The thread is dumb Rosc. Except for the fact JD didn't coddle the white players enough. Whom may have been at a disadvantage due to their home language and athletic skills. Just because Darko got to run through the lockerroom naked, with impunity, doesn't mean he got the free ride he needed.
