3 year NBA career, playoffs 9 times, twice in the finals.

As what? a bench warmer?

There’s nothing better than having one’s perversion endorsed by the first lady. Her actions beg the question “What is the proper definition of a ‘first lady?’”

I personally do not measure accomplishments based on playing a game.

what distraction?

The Tebow haters are the only ones who caused the “distractions”. So sad when we allow the media and hateful leftists to determine what jobs people can hold

With MoocHell, I would have to say “First Ingrate”. You know....living in the White House likened to being in a “fancy Prison” and all that crap.

Near as I can tell it’s the “taking it up the poop-chute” thing.

I stand by my opinion.

I guess he has time to do a cameo on Barry’s Big State of the Union Show. It’s not like he has an NBA game or anything like that on Barry’s big night.

Michelle should keep him away from her light-in-the-loafers husband.

The SS might have to shoot him if he “double dribbles” on the president!

Every event in America has to be -centered- on homosexuality. The Russians might be civilizations only hope.

Even Christ had to flee to Egypt, Israel's ancient foe, to survive his own land.

When did we cross over, from toleration of homosexuality, to actively promoting same, and pushing it in our faces?

Lawrence v. Texas

That which is not forbidden shall be mandatory.

Maybe someday we’ll learn the truth about Obama, similar to how we learned lots of sordid details about the Kennedys many years after the Kennedy presidency.

But I thought the explanation that his birthday present to her, to stay in Hawaii longer without him, is covering up for something else.

Well, he does have bragging rights to leading on a poor girl as his covert “beard” for many years before dumping her.

Obama can make the same claim, so how does that qualify as something “special”?

Well, homObama hasn't dumped Mooshelle yet. But I'm sure that'll happen just as soon as the 8 year royal vacation is over.

Nah, most of America can’t stand the fruits. The news media seems to like talking all about it though. I’m a big NBA fan and I had to Google the name when I heard about it. He was a journeyman nobody. He’s getting more media time now with his homo announcement than he ever did as a player.

Where in Japan?

I wonder which team owner Obama will lean on to pick up Collins as a player?
