Gumbel said the commissioner wants to be seen as a "modern plantation overseer" and is "treating NBA men like they were his boys."
He adds that Stern is trying to show that he can keep "hired hands in their place."
Will he get fired like Hank Jr?
Gee, could he be going after Stern because he’s a JOOOOOOOO?
Gumble is a has been. He had his day in the sun on NBC and now is a no body no where to be seen except on a cable channel and program with few watchers. How the mighty have fallen.
I am amazed at how long this racist has been on TV
Gee, could he be going after Stern because hes a JOOOOOOOO?
I don’t know if it’s the makeup, but Gumble sure is a very light-skinned fella.
Which gives further credence to my theory that lighter-skinned blacks tend to be more racist than darker-skinned blacks, as if to try to prove they are just as black as they are.
Perhaps a poor choice of words in Gumbel but I agree with him that Stern needs to go.
I hate the NBA, so I’m just happy to have it off the air. I hope the owners never come to an agreement with the players, fire all of them, and start all over for next season.
Racist as well as incredibly arrogant and self absorbed.
Gumbel should concentrate on paying child support, and leave basketball matters up to those who know something about responsibility.
Amen! This guy sees racism everywhere, except when he looks at himself in the mirror!
what a great guy Gumbel is....puke
Bryant, is my guess. Massive chip on his shoulder. His brother Greg isn’t the controversial type.
Gumbel’s a tool. I hate the NBA, and get a chuckle out of their woes (they deserve it just for foisting the unbearable WNBA on my sports ticker). But the comparison to plantation owners is a bit off. After all, the players get 53% of the revenue under the owners’ current proposal. That’s a bit better than what the slaves got, as I understand it.
“...fire all of them, and start all over for next season....”
Does that mean the Mavericks get to be champs this year too?
Gumbel—you’re a fool. Enslave me for $10 million.
These thugs make millions playing a game.
Go to work or go hungry, who gives a hoot.
