SORT BY Relevancy
Not many people are criticizing Kevin Durant for quitting Team USA nearly two weeks after the team began training camp, but I am an exception. I thought it was a poor choice by a guy who let down his national team coach and teammates -- even if the majority of folks want to give him a pass.
But as we look closer at Durant's decision, it raises some questions. Is he getting bad advice from Jay Z and Roc Nation, who represent him?
Is sneaker money more important than keeping your word to your coach and teammates?
And is Roc Nation making the right kinds of endorsement deals for Durant, who is negotiationg with UnderArmour and adidas as he ponders leaving Nike.
My answers in this interview with Marc Daniels, host of "The Beat of Sports" on 740-The Game in Orlando.
Todays broadcast is speaking on Steve Scalise and Michael Grimm. Why is it we have to endure the Vitters of the world where a Congressman elected by the people is allowed to get away with everything short of murder, and still be allowed to serve? Race still is an ugly aspect of our politics. No politician should ever find himself supporting Neo/Nazi and supremacist groups and still attempt to serve the people...David Dukes can never change his stripes, and Michael Grimm can not be forgive for breaking the law and being paid handsomely!

Our conversation this week has been all about torture, and now the Congress is fighting against reconciling with Cuba. We have accepted Torture as a way of life even though it is not how we as a nation have operated in the past. 130 Children shot dead in a school in Pakistan, six members of a family in Pennsylvania, killed by an ex-husband, before he commits suicide, and young Black men shot dead in the streets of our cities and in the parks and in Wal Mart. There needs to be a reconsideration of what is right as we pass through this life. We need to respect each other and wish only the best for one another.

In our cities and communities, the wealthy have begun buying up assets. Detroit is selling buildings for sixty cents on the dollar and the Waldorf Astoria Hotel has been bought by China for two billion dollars. In New Orleans the people are still suffering and homes are un-repaired, un-rebuilt, and un-financed. The state is fighting to allow the Keystone Pipeline to travel acoss the midsection of the nation to pump Canadian oil for transport to other nations. Harlem is being bought up and swept up by outside interests. Detroit is suffering under hacking of the government by outside forces, and Hempstead Village, New York is suffering the same pangs of change with greedy land developers.

I believe that is the case.
But whatever the case, that was a low blow by the newspaper this morning printing a front page headline that read: "Mr. Unreliable."
I have a headline for Scott Brooks and his strategy in Game 5, which you can hear in this podcast with WHBQsports56 in Memphis. I think you will like it. The hosts, Greg and Eli, loved it.
And as far as the Durant headline goes, there is a corollary to be drawn to a story that appeared in the Orlando Sentinel in July, 1996. It helped lead to the departure of Shaquille O'Neal from Central Florida.
More on that, and what it might mean regarding KD's future (Lakers?) in this podcast. Enjoy.
Today we will focus on three books on their way to the Harlem Book Fair.
