    Re: Rev. Jesse Jackson

    True. If he only said the last part of his statement: "This is an owner employee relationship -- between business partners -- and LeBron honored his contract", he'd be fine. I would absolutely agree with him.

    Unfortunately, as Jesse Jackson always does, the statement goes too far in making it a race issue when in reality, Dan Gilbert's sour grapes mentality has nothing to do with race. He'd be equally clueless regardless of the player's color.

    If Gilbert was trashing on a white guy would the Rev even give it a second thought? Doubt it.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the things Jesse said about Obama when he didn't know the mic was on. Showed who he truly is.

    Shame on the media for still giving that guy time. If we ran into Jackson on a street corner, we would pass him off for being a complete crazy! That guy is nuts.

    Jesse Jackson would take a completely valid point (LeBron didn't betray anybody as he upheld his end of the contract and was free to pursue other suitors. In fact, Gilbert may have "betrayed" LeBron more than vice versa by never giving him a relevant #2 guy to take some of the pressure off of him) and ruin it by interjecting race into it...

    I've never known a slave to make $20 million a year. Jesse Jackson is way off. Although it is not the first time for that.
