There are dudes admitting in that thread that they engage in the same behavior, some saying that they have said worse. :lol: unbelievable. Who would even be proud to admit that?

Having been called the n word numerous times while playing online, I'm thinking that the use of ethic and racial slurs towards minorities are like breathing for a lot of people on this website.


Yeah... i mean, i cant tell you how many times ive been called the "N" word online playing madden or Call of duty. and im like super white. its an awful microcosm of the racism in this country. like its just common place its ok to go online and on your headset call people the N word in the most deroogotory of ways


What Leonard did is exactly what racist little turds do online. He got caught slipping but I would not be shocked if he was one of those pricks that call people a "f*cking n____r" in call of duty lobbies.

I think he should honestly be blacklisted from the NBA. He actually paused and thought about it before he let the K word fly. He was looking for the worst possible thing to say and aside from the n word he went there. What a garbage human being.

6's have some 500+ teams to play and two road trips that'll test them. They going to need healthy Biid without missing much games. They won't be able to hold that 1 seed, not with Harden, Blake, Joe, Nic, Kyrie and Brown balling. Our depth and schedule tells me they just won't be able to hold on.

Something about 6's team too. They not good shooting team. If Biid ain't beasting they in trouble.

Now Prok, check this out. This is from the wiretap article discussion about the Leonard:

It's crazy that actually responding harshly to racism is punished more than the actual racism on here. This is flat out hate speech:

Does Howard realize what kind of element has festered onto this website? Does he even care? I'm honestly curious as to how this kind of stuff is okay. This guy is not the only neo nazi I've seen on here. I recall a lot of racist stuff was being said ad nauseum on the political forum leading up to the 2016 election and all of it seemed like it was going unchecked. Now look at it.

Who knows. All I know is, if you rail against racism on the GB you get banned, but this stuff is okay. This isn't the first time I've seen that guy raging about Jewish people and that was 2 years ago on the GB. Mods did absolutely nothing.

There are 4 things that should be automatically a non starter on any form of social media platform because in real life, it gets people killed: racism, Antisemitism, misogyny and homo/transphobia. When you provide a platform that entertains those four things with impunity, you are complicit. What Thundershock88 (I wonder what the 88 stands for?) is spewing is stuff that you regularly find on 4chan, a resthaven for neo nazis and extremists.

Embiid dodged a bullet. It's only a deep knee bruise and he could miss two to three weeks, but it could have been a lot worse. He avoided the dreaded ACL, MCL and/or Meniscus tears.

Biid is brittle af. Same could be said about Kyrie, yet we have some ready to trade Din just because. That's without him going awol. Those who live this min should go and check why Nets where making PO past two years.

Damn does everyone just choke against the Sixers down the stretch? Bucks gave up a 7 point lead in 40 seconds. OT now, wtf...

Well Giannis decided to ether the Sixers in OT.

NVM, the Bucks decided to take the last minute off. Looks like they're going to give it up again.

Finally! Felt like the 2013 season all over again, where we kept getting as close as possible to the division title, but never actually got there all season, and then ultimately fell short without ever being at the top once.

On this day, 3 years ago:

Boston:
-Tatum, Brown
-Kyrie, Horford, Heyward, Morris
-7 1st rounders the next 3 years

Nets:
-Owed to swaps to Boston
-no lotto pick despite being the worst team
-core of Lin/RHJ/Levert/Booker/Lopez


Fast forward... ainge cant find even 1 decent bench piece among 7 firsts, all 4 of his FA signings leave for nothing as the Celtics blame it all on Kyrie.

Kyrie goes to the Nets, brings KD, Harden forces his way over, Nets hit homeruns on guys like allen/claxton and are now clear title favorites while boston will be in the playin round to make the post season

Absolute HIGH comedy. Boston has all kinds of major internal issues years after Kyrie left while Kyrie is having an MVP season for us. we get bench pieces with low picks and buyout guys falling over themselves to be here without even spending the MLE.

Boston is screwed once Brown leaves, which he will since he wants to be the man and that wont happen with Tatum. he also is a social justice warrior and boston being a racist place will eventually wear on him and the media will turn on him at some point and already kind of are right now.

Couldnt happen to a worse group of fans. i remeber them cheering injury for us so they would get a better pick.

Lowry says he wants to go to a contender and compete for a title.

Thats big trouble for us if he goes to the heat or philly. I think both would beat us in a 7 game series if they landed him. He is a 2-way game changer and the piece each team is missing and has been our cryptonite.

Simmons/embiid/Lowry or Bam/Jimmy/Lowry is an all-time great defensive core

Return to Brooklyn Nets
