NBA commissioner David Stern has some definite double standards going with the way he’s handled the Gilbert Arenas situation comparing to how he’s handled others; in particular his silence in the wake of Clippers owner Donald Sterling and his own legal issues concerning African-Americans and Latinos. But Arenas didn’t help himself by continuing to joke about the guns in the locker room issue. His indefinite suspension may endure through this season because his legal issues probably won’t be settled by April. In the picture his teammates are shown laughing and joking with him about it, and yet the league isn’t saying anything about that either. Gilbert is and will be made an example of.
I love Floyd Mayweather as a boxer, but I believe he doesn’t want any of Manny Pacquiao right now. All of that bickering about blood test was just a smoke-screen in most boxing fans minds. Now Manny moves on to fight Joshua Clottey on March 13.
I don’t know if he doesn’t want to fight Manny now meaning March or not at all. I suspect he will have to acquiesce at some point however, if he wants to secure his ultimate boxing legacy as the best pound for pound in his era.
