Josh Howard Of The Dallas Mavericks Curses The National Anthem And Invokes Barack Obama!
"The Star Spangled Banner is going on right now. I don't even celebrate that (sh*t) . . . I'm black. Obama 08!

And this is what hurts Obama with those blue collar white people in PA, and MI.
uh.... one word.... “typical”?
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
Ah yes, another gem from a player of “Thugball”.
Just wow. I hope he invested well.
Well since this guy won’t be voting for a white candidate if it fair then to say he is a racist if the same is said for any white person who votes against Obama?
Being that Dallas is in TX, and TX seems to be filled with American loving folks (except, maybe for Austin. It’s kinda like our Madison.), it’s amazing the Mavericks’ attendance numbers haven’t suffered. Perhaps they will this year.
really, I'd a sworn you look like any other peckerwood with an IQ of 70 Josh.
Hopefully the Mavericks will lose tonight and Howard goes 0-22 from the field.
so maybe the ungrateful America-hating bum starts taking his pay in Zimbabwean currency, then...
Now this guy is one class act. Yeah, this'll sure play well in all the swing states OHB wants to win.
JHo’s been a slow-career decline since unexpectedly admitting marijuana use during the playoffs last year.
Arrgh! On a day when I a feeling very nrgative about the outcome of this election and about the future of the country I so very much love, this shit comes out and it pisses me off!
Another multi-millionaire, a multi-millionaire because of the opportunities America has given him, slams America and it’s traditions and promotes a racist Marxist for president. Unreal! I hope the people of Dallas boycott Mavericks games until the release this punk! He doesn’t deserve anything good.
What’s happened to my country? Are we doomed to an enevitable collapse?
God, if you are listening, please save our country.
Are you kidding? Next to Boston, Dallas is probably the most jock-worshipping city in America. Pro athletes can do no wrong in this town so long as The Team is winning. Josh Howard could sodomize his own mother at center court and most fans wouldn’t care. In Dallas, winning is everything.
Why, he works for Mark Cuban, just towing the company line.
This has been pretty big news here in the DFW area all day and contrasted with Colby's interview at the Olympics
'Our Country Is the Best'
WSJ-August 18, 2008; Page A14
Assorted TV commentators keep opining that the Olympics are all about the brotherhood of man, rather than national ambition or patriotism. But don't tell that to the fanatically nationalist Chinese -- or to Kobe Bryant, the NBA star who is playing with Team USA in Beijing.
In an interview Friday on NBC, the world's most famous basketball player told Chris Collinsworth how he got "goosebumps" when he received his Olympics uniform. "I actually just looked at it for a while. I just held it there and I laid it across my bed and I just stared at it for a few minutes; just because as a kid growing up this is the ultimate, ultimate in basketball." The Los Angeles Laker went on to call the U.S. "the greatest country in the world. It has given us so many great opportunities, and it's just a sense of pride that you have; that you say, 'You know what? Our country is the best.'"
Mr. Collinsworth seemed either startled or impressed by such sentiment, and asked, "Is that a cool thing to say in this day and age? That you love your country, and that you're fighting for the red, white and blue? It seems sort of like a day gone by."
To which Mr. Bryant replied: "No, it's a cool thing for me to say. I feel great about it, and I'm not ashamed to say it. I mean, this is a tremendous honor."
Cynics will claim that this is merely about marketing, with Mr. Bryant hoping to use the Games to burnish his public image. On the other hand, he and his rich teammates on the basketball squad are giving up their offseason to play for nothing save possible medals. Mr. Bryant has also been an enthusiastic spectator for other U.S. Olympians, waving the Stars and Stripes at various events.
To the kind of Americans who consider themselves primarily "citizens of the world," nationalism at the Olympics is déclassé, even embarrassing. We're with Kobe.
Great story about Kobe! Thanks for posting. What a contrast.
Damn you Bill Gates and your crappy spell checker! How does Bill Gates put out Vista and Steve Jobs gets cancer...there is no justice!
