    Re: Johnny Manziel Sits Courtside for a Dallas Mavericks Game

    This isn't Kerr's first foray into silliness. In 2010, while GM of the Phoenix Suns, he likened Arizona to Nazi Germany because of Arizona's Anti-Illegal Immigration Law (SB 1070). Reasonable people can disagree on the merits of the law, of course, but generally he who first likens his opponent to Hitler or Nazi Germany loses the argument and respect.

    It's really elitist and a bit arrogant. He made the presumption that a football player had to be poor and unable to afford luxuries...

    Wait, are y'all saying that there are people who actually watch NBA games this early in the season? Who knew?
    (I do like to watch the NBA, & will actually be attending a live game or two w/ some friends in the next month. But I usually don't too involved until the playoffs start, & then not even until after some playoff games happen.)

    As to Kerr's comments, I...(insert Monty Python's Holy Grail scenes of the guys insulting Arthur et al) at him.

That is my point: a journalist can question how he got the seats by investigating the facts then reporting the story. You know, instead of just saying off the cuff remarks about the individual with no proof one way or another. Seems like Kerr fell into the trappings of the blowout-induced diarrhea of the mouth.

    We live in a society that rewards attention-seeking behavior by paying attention to it. He's just making a name for himself.

    And then he can be openly ridiculed and blasted in response as long as we end it with, "Bless his heart."

    Just as he presumed (incorrectly, I think) that all Americans of hispanic descent favor illegal immigration and/or that anyone opposed to illegal immigration is by definition a Nazi...

    Re: Johnny Manziel Sits Courtside for a Dallas Mavericks Game

    Kerr should certainly understand insensitive remarks. From an old SI story about fan behavior:

    In February 1988, Arizona senior guard Steve Kerr was cruelly reminded of the murder of his father -- Malcolm H. Kerr, the president of the American University of Beirut -- by terrorists in Lebanon four years earlier. In a game against archrival Arizona State, in Tempe, Kerr was taunted by Sun Devils fans, who yelled "PLO, PLO." (The Palestine Liberation Organization was never linked to the assassination.) Kerr responded by scoring 20 of his 22 points in the first half as Arizona rolled to a 101-73 win. Arizona State later apologized, and an anonymous Sun Devils fan attempted to do the same, explaining in a letter sent to Kerr, "There's no way you can understand . . . some of the things we have had to put up with when we've gone to Arizona over the years."
    Champagne for real friends and real pain for sham friends. (Unknown)
