Rick Reilly still a douche bag, now hates "very tall guys"
In his new espn article rick reilly gives his opinion on the melo trade as well as NBA free agency/trades as of late. And it pretty much boiled down to him him not like young black dudes having any say about anything
"This is what the NBA has become: very tall, very rich twenty-somethings running the league from the backs of limos, colluding so that the best players gang up on the worst. To hell with the Denvers, the Clevelands, the Torontos. " - reilly.
I mean why even bother with the "very tall, very rich twenty something" moniker. We get it you don't like rich young black guys deciding where they want to live and work. This coming from reilly who was from Boulder than worked in Denver for two years before taking a job with the la times after just two years in Denver. Oh and he left that job after just two years. Big cities are big cities cause they appeal to people more than other cities. So if you are the best in the world at your particular job, you are going to be able to choose where to do it 9 times out of 10 regardless of profession.
As much as it hurts me to say, bill Simmons does a great job of pointing out how athletes picking where they play is not a new thing by any means.
" Over the past six decades, the following players pushed their way from a worse situation to a (seemingly) better one either by trade or free agency: Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, Shaquille O'Neal, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Moses Malone, Rick Barry, Charles Barkley, Scottie Pippen, Bill Walton, Kevin Garnett, Allen Iverson, Gary Payton, Ray Allen, Jason Kidd, Clyde Drexler ..." - Simmons
So i wonder if it bothered reilly back than or if him getting older and players getting younger, still black, and more outspoken is really his problem. And that my friends was some social commentary from les Anderson. It is really unnecessary, but rick really is a real cunt, and is back on my list. What list? One that includes skip bayless, jemelle hill, Kevin Connelly, Brett ratner, Nancy grace, and the security guard at your sisters dorm (hey bro how many times do I have to tell you I don't go to school here, I'm just visiting)
Ed note: not pictures of Rick reilly. Katie Cassidy if you are curious
