    It isn't racist to assume that white NBA players are naturally less athletic than black players. Not all of course, but that's basically been the case in the league since the inaugural season.

    Also, posting in a Carl Herrerra thread.

    I honestly thought that was McRoberts. He's been known to do stuff like that and ties hair like that as well.

    What the hell are you even talking about? Shouldnt expect much of substance if he's posting.
