I dont think this was a mistake. These are young people who write headlines for a living making these front pages ...they fully understand word-play and caption humor. Seems like a bored employee was having some fun. I bet this picture and caption dont stay up long.

I dont think he is pulling the race card just seeing if anybody else caught that. None of us know the intent behind the specific picture and word combination. I personally dont care but if it was meant to be what he thinks it is then NBA.com is full of sh*t for hiring Ruckus

have you seriously never heard the expression "get the monkey off your back".

Now if they literally had a picture of a black player climbing his back then yea you'd have a point.

What an idiot.
On to my response. Yeah all that you said. But, why is that the picture they chose. They could have just gone with him shooting a jumper. Don't be naive all your life.


Oh well, good sh*t to talk about I guess. Now, on to the games today. Its 4 damn good ones

Shhhh that's a figment of your imagination. Don't play the race card, we got a black president, the person who made that best friend is black, get over it racism doesn't exist anymore. Did I miss any?
