Anybody hear what he just said
"I'm just here to provide diversity & give the white man's perspective" - Doug Gottlieb
Definitely not a big deal, but I'm sure there will be an overreaction.
It was on the CBS pregame show with 4 black men I just thought it was a pretty dumb thing to say.
the dumbest thing he said was the pg will win you the game or lose you the game. the jet rightfully called him out for that.
How stupid can you get? He could be on the fast track of being out of a job.
Fell on deaf ears on the set
"You're not a good guy, you go somewhere else. We'll play you. We'll beat you."
Who cares? It was joke, nothing more. The hypersensitivity towards this sort of thing keeps racism alive just as much as actual racism. Move on.
He probably jokes with them like that in private all the time. Hell I do it around my black friends. He clearly wasn't being malicious but the Al Sharptons of the world will pop out of the wood work to try to publicly crucify him for it. The hypersensitivity is unreal.
Some people are still assholes with racism, yes. But for the most part it's more hurtful for people to react to it. No reason to draw attention to something he was clearly joking about and he wouldn't have said that on the show if he didn't feel comfortable saying it around those guys.
lotta reverse racism gonna happen on this one...
Beatings will continue until morale improves
So what's the issue...him pointing out he is white and giving his perspective? I hear black people make the same type of comments with no reaction. Way to PC and sensitive. Be nice to just be "people".

Not a big deal at all. People are too sensitive if something like that bothers them.
You can tell it took took Kenny Smith and Barkley off guard.
Barkley being taken aback by something someone said? He's Mr. Sensationalist comment guy; and I like him for it

True, but I'm not really sure why. Barkley is certainly no stranger to racial humor. Those guys really left him out to dry IMO. If they would have laughed it off it wouldn't be getting talked about nearly as much. It certainly wasn't offensive to any reasonable person.
16 pts at the half is a bigger story, imho.
Too bad Quette couldnt put up 40 this half and we can pencil him in... I have Marquette beating Miami in all three of my money brackets, pretty happy Miami is shooting so poorly right now, hope they cant put it back together. They do take the shots that can get you back in the game quickly.
Yep, they can score fast when they are falling. Just heard Greg Anthony say they need to play better defense....LOL wut? They need to make shots!
Lol. You guys should hear me and wren talk.
I talk the same way in font of my black friends. Like when were playing basketball and I call foul and they say no then I say is it because I'm white...
Oh geeZ, how dare he! Sounds rather tongue n cheek to me. Some of you should get a pair; you've taken too much sensitivity training.
