    What exactly did he say about Obama? I couldn't tell. Josh could definitely be a regular on my "Professional Athlete Attempts to Speak" talk show.

    the only thing I could make out is what I wrote.

    After the initial comment someone off camera said "Obama" then "Obama all that s***"

    Don't ask me what that means but I just wanted to make sure people didn;t think he said "Bomb" like the guy I quoted said.

    If Josh Howard played for the Houston Rockets, I would never go to, nor watch another game until they traded or released him. I bleed Rockets Red but if it came to that, I wouldn't have to pause to think about it.

    Whichever team he is on next season will be my most hated team for the foreseeable future.

    An utter Disgrace.

    Only Marc Cuban would take a chance on a guy like Howard.


    Good thing he's not our GM.......and Josh isn't on our team.........

    He is entitled to his opinion, but we are all entitled to judge his opinion based on how stupid his statements are. He didn't do anything illegal like his speeding ticket or his mar1juana smoking claim.

    It's been obvious to me since he entered the NBA that he is a classless thug who happens to be good at putting a ball through a hoop.

    It's not even a Race thing, as he suggests. There were plenty of Black soldiers in WWII, not to mention all conflicts since then. When we sing the national anthem before Sporting events, we are showing our respect to the men and women who keep our country safe and allow us to have the great freedoms that we have.

    To say that he does not "celebrate that #### because he is black" is more insulting to Black people than it is White People. Can you imagine if you were an ancestor of a Black soldier that died while serving his country? How would that sound to you?

    I was always on the fence about Mark Cuban, but if he doesn't get rid of Howard I now know where I stand. What a POS. Both of them.

    There were a lot of stupid people in the video (The most stupid of which had to be the dumba$$ who posted this on youtube) but I can overlook stupid. There will always be stupid. But Josh Howard went over the line. I feel sorry for him that he isn't able to appreciate the country in which he lives.

    I'm reading some of your posts and I realize that some of you have never had family serve in the Military, or die serving their country.

    You don't understand why we sing the National Anthem, you just don't get it.

    Check out these points in time and you may start to understand why -

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bataan_death_march

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merrill's_Marauders

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_midway

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_the_bulge

    Instances like these are why we sing the National Anthem when large crowds of Americans are gathered. It is to bring us together and help us remember those who kept our country safe and who helped maintain our way of life.

    I'm not about to get in a pissing contest with people who have no concept of where they came from but I pitty those who have no sense of appreciation for sacrafices that have been made on their behalf.

    Lol, I think I saw Mike James in the mix too. They were obviously joking around. Who really cares anyway? All of a sudden everybody's a super patriot.

    What you fail to mention is that those black soldiers in WWII were not even allowed to eat or associate with white soldiers. They were completely segregated. From my understanding, European pows captured by allied forces were allowed to eat with white American soldiers even though they were the enemy. Blacks, however, had to eat in their own mess hall, which was usually pretty crappy. They also returned home to a situation where they didn't have full civil and human rights even though they were fighting to protect those rights. Not much to be proud of there.

    No one else does for having read it.

    Some damn punctuation and f'n paragraph here and there might have kept you from sounding just as ignorant as Josh.

    btw, that "rant" was not necessary. I'm black, I'm "from the hood," and I know immature stupidity when I hear it. The man is 28. He needs to grow the f up.

    GTFO out this country then if it's so bad. You think Josh Howard could be a millionaire in any other country in the world? If he feels like he's being exploited then he's a hypocrite and should quit the NBA.

    It's one think to say that there are things that need improving, it's quite another for a millionaire (who has taken every advantage of the benefits this country has to offer) so the whole thing sucks.

    This "hood" thing has got to stop. I used to live in South Central Los Angeles. I didn't see any white people coming in and disenfranchising the local denizens. I didn't see any KKK killing people. Fact is, most people didn't got to the voting polls because they didn't care. And the people that were committing homicides? Well they were the locals.
