I wouldn't call basketball players "thugs" eithers. NBA players, for the most part, are rarely ever in the news for getting trouble.
Although I love the NFL, much more than the NBA, they're the ones who always have legal issues.
Oh, really? Apparently, you have forgotten the recent antics of Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton.
Or maybe Ron Artest didn't really rough up those fans.
And Shaquille O' Neal's wife can tell you what kind of cheater he is.
And let's not forget Charles "Spitter" Barkley, whose spitting skills are legendary, especially when it comes to those who pay his bills.
And Kobe Bryant has been in so much trouble I'm surprised anyone even gives him the time of day anymore. Rape is a crime, you know. And that poor housekeeper of his should have gotten justice.
And let's not forget the so-called "nice guy of basketball", Stephon Marbury, a married man who couldn't keep it in his pants long enough to avoid scandal.
So don't sit here and feed us a line that the NBA players don't get in trouble, because that's a complete lie. Just because you don't like reality doesn't mean you can turn around and make your own.
These people just aren't appreciative of the overinflated salaries they receive and the gilded palaces they live in. Keep defending these people, they won't defend you.
