Got defensive concerns, but surely wouldn't mind if he dropped into our lap.

Meanwhile: The Tulsa DeathTour Aftermath Report

The city of Tulsa is experiencing a surge in coronavirus cases, a little over 2 weeks after President Donald Trump held a campaign rally in an indoor arena there.

Dr. Bruce Dart, Executive Director of the Tulsa Health Department, said in a press conference on Wednesday there are high numbers being reported this week, with nearly 500 new cases in two days and trends are showing that those numbers will increase.
There had been a 20% decline in new Covid-19 cases the week of June 28 through July 4.
The Tulsa Health Department reported 266 new cases on Wednesday, bringing the total number in the county to 4,571. There are 17,894 cases in Oklahoma and 452 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University's tally of cases in the United States.
When asked if the cases in Tulsa are going up due to the rally on June 20, Dart said that there were several large events a little over two weeks ago.

"I guess we just connect the dots," Dart said.

Connect the dots?

Meanwhile, environment for the restart continues to


Leave us not descend to the gutter with Trumpsters who routinely scoff at the suffering of others. 

Herman Cain? 

I truly feel sad for the brother. While calling attention to the irony is fair game, leave us not behave like Trumpsters and move beyond that into the land of wishing ill on others.

Want to linger on some irony?  Try that the terror of a COVID contagion should bring down a prominent black supporter of Mister Trump, as he stood shoulder to shoulder with The Lone Deranger midst the Greenwood Ghosts of the fallen and the martyred of the Black Wall Street Pogrom that took place in Tulsa 99 years ago.

As for Florida as a site for a resuscitated NBA season? 

That is a fucking pipe dream.

Spencer Dinwiddie tests positive for COVID-19

Brooklyn Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie told The Athletic he has tested positive for coronavirus, creating doubt over his status for the NBA restart. “Over the past few months, I have been diligent about protecting myself and others from COVID-19 by following all designated protocol and quarantining,” Dinwiddie told The Athletic. –

As far as welfare goes - getting out to an event such is this has extreme benefit.

Not being in lockdown has extreme benefit.

Come For The Racism


lol, lol, lol....

Originally scheduled for Juneteenth, before the backlash became even too much for the Folks at Dog Whistle Central. 

Sadly, Dawg, there is no laugh track for the destruction of Black Wall Street, the self-sufficient black Greenwood neighborhood in Tulsa, 99 years ago, on May 32-June 1, 1921.  The good white folks of Tulsa, burnt it to the fucking grounds, and killed several hundred people. 

TRUMP 2020. 

Make America HATE Again. 

And again

And again...

PS: Please note the caption on the photo.  Cracker dickweeds too stupid to spell: "Runin the negro out of Tulsa,"  But hey, no systemic racism in Amerika, eh?

Did any of you just receive an e-mail from



JOSH SILVER in the subject line?

It contained a https:/  LINK which I did not open.

Closed with

Josh Silver

I pass this along in the hope that ELBA Progenitor Josh Silver is OK, and that there is nothing sinister in this message, save perhaps that Josh might have gotten hacked? 

PS: My computer died back in January, so I lost many of my email contacts' addresses, JOSH SILVER's included...OR ELSE I WOULD HAVE FORWARD THIS TO HIM.  If any of you have his email address, kindly post it.  Thanks.

Trump is looking to move the Republican National Convention from Charlotte to....

wait for it...Wait For It...WAIT FOR IT.


The entire state will be a fucking petrie dish.

Trump makes George Wallace look like MLK

As a matter of fact, in his dotage, Wallace tried to make amends with black folk, so to speak. 

Trump is a troll of  Biblical Proportions. 

God Help Us All. 

And the first reopening campaign rally.....  Juneteenth in Tulsa

I know his old man was a KKK member and all, but the Donald really does seem hell-bent on going down as a legendary figure in the history of American racism.

Basketball / Free Agents Swearing Love & Fealty To New York

As a Knicks fan, I wish you would come here. Madison Square Garden is so great. Damian Lillard: I thought I was headed there a few years ago; I was hearing trade rumors. The Garden is my favorite place to play. – via Lisa Robinson @ Vanity Fair

Kiid, there is a long and honored tradition of players swearing love and fealty to New York City and its fans. 

And who ended up coming here? 


Amare.  K.

Melo forced a trade, which eviscerated our roster and prevented us from being contenders, irrespective of Anthony's all-star stature as an offensive force. 

Who else?

Jason Kidd in the winter of his career, and he was a mogtherfucker until old age caught up with him in the playoffs.  Woodson gets undue credit for Kidd's leadership and skill on the floor, let alone KT and Rasheed. 

This is a job for BoD, but correct me if I am wrong, wasn't the last significant FREE AGENT to sign with New York...ALLAN HOUSTON? 

The problem is not the players on the floor, it is not the city, it is not THE FANS, or THE GARDEN. 

The problem is the decision makers, and that begins at the top with Mister Dolan. 

DECISION MAKING.  Trickles Down. 

Larry Brown dissing Ariza.

D'Antoni humiliating Marbury. 

Phil Jackson (and his sheep dog, Charlie Rosen) hanging Melo out to dry. 

Rambis humiliating Fredette. 

Hornacek humiliating Noah. 

Fizdale humiliating Kanter. 

You would never see such petty, dickweedish behavior from an actual factual MAN, like Greg Popovtich. 

Most people say that one on one, Dolan is a likeable guy.  I sat next to him at the Cream Concert in 2005, and he was a pleasant enough person. 

But it is almost as if he occupies his own personal BIZARRO WORLD, where wrong it right, down is up, black is white. 

Given his relationship with his father, he seems to have a real need to prove himself, as if, I DID IT ON MY OWN. far as making money, for himself and his share holders, James has been pretty prescient, no doubt. 

But again, he has this tick, where he is almost compelled to do the exact opposite of what is called for, to dig in his heels for no good reason other than obstinacy.  It is a childish compulsion.  Like what went down with Zeke and Stephon and the sex harassment suit.  Would have been so easy just to settle, but it became a matter of principle, the principle being, apparently, PRIVILEGE. 

This whole Black Lives Matter thang has been SO MISHANDLED, and it was such a no-brainer. 

It's not like Dolan seems a racist.  He has empowered a lot of African Americans in positions of authority, visble reps of the corporate state.   

My personal take? 

Dolan counts Trump as a friend, God help him, but hey, different strokes. 

Still, standing up for Trump, as Dolan is a MAJOR TRUM DONOR, would not sit well with his fan base or the local media, save for the POST, so he tried to finesse the whole George Floyd martyrdom and the Movement it birthed, world wide, by saying nothing, pretty much. 

Trouble is, in a court of law, SILENCE = ASSENT.

No, I don't think Dolan is a fucking racist, more like a toddleresque ass-clown.  He didn't want to negatively impact Trump, so he basically tap danced around things with not one, but two very too little too late, testosterone-deficient corporate statements.  Which in so many words, said in so many words....NOTHING. 

But his lack of action spoke voumes. 

And this, AND THIS, after hiring Leon Rose, who has a lifetime of positive interactions with African American clients, who made solid African American additions to the Knicks corporate and hoops hierarchy, who was brought on to project, and so far so good, competency, professionalism, and an abillity to relate to the modern pro hoopster, and create a welcoming environment for talent. 

So, sorry Kiid, but Dolan, once again, is a dime late and a dollar short, and pausing only to reload, has shot himself and this sotired franchise, RIGHT IN THE FUCKING FOOT. 








PS: I reckon Lillard knows he would be afforded GODLIKE treatment.  But what do you reckon the over under would be that he suits up.  Right up there with Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Trae Young, Giannis...Dream FUCKING onnnnnnnnnnnnn...

The rising death toll and comprehensive incompetence of Florida’s governor’s office is giving players pause and may force the league to downsize its plans to 16 teams or fewer along with forcing it to devise a mechanism to replace players on rosters who won’t risk their health to prematurely restart the league.
