Apparently Slaves Can Be Multimillionaires

If an NBA basketball player only makes $8 million a year instead of $10 million, Bryant Gumbel thinks that's tantamount to slavery:
Bryant Gumbel invoked race in a televised editorial on the NBA's strained labor talks, likening league Commissioner David Stern to a "plantation overseer."

Gumbel ended Tuesday's edition of HBO's "Real Sports" by taking aim at Stern, who he said is to blame for the lockout that threatens the entire season. He said Stern's "disdain for the players" is "pathetic."

"But his efforts were typical of a commissioner, who has always seemed eager to be viewed as some kind of modern plantation overseer treating NBA men as if they were his boys," Gumbel said. "It’s part of Stern’s M.O. Like his past self-serving edicts on dress code or the questioning of officials, his moves are intended to do little more than show how he’s the one keeping the hired hands in their place."
Gumbel is a race-obsessed idiot. He has a history of equally stupid statements and has a chip on his shoulder the size of the new MLK Frozen-in-Carbonite Memorial.

Personally, I don't care if the NBA ever comes back. I haven't watched an NBA game in years and as far as I can tell the only reason it exists is to give local lowlifes an excuse to loot tennis shoe stores after a championship.

He's such a victim. Bryant Gumbel's wife, Mrs. Hillary Gumbel, is a statuesque blond.
