Mavs Fans Get Racial On Mark Cuban

First off, sorry for the lack of posts this week. I have been very sick.  I’m about 50% and plan I going to Green Bay to cover the Sunday night Cowboys-Packers contest which airs on NBC 5.

Back to today’s post….Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has gotten some very angry emails about Josh Howard’s anti-American stance about how his negativity toward the national anthem at an Allen Iverson flag football charity game this summer.

I understand the anger, but the racism is just overboard.  This is one from Mark’s blog.  I caution you, it is pretty sick.

Mr. Cuban,
Just saw your nigger Josh Howard  disresepct the national anthem because he is black. According to the news you say he is a really great guy. Of course he is because he makes you lots of money you greedy bastard.
You would rather sell out your own country that my dead father fought for in WW II than than lose a buck by firing this black bastard.
You are nothing more than a nigger slave owner milking him for all his black ass can get you.
YOU, SIR IS WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY. YOU AND THAT NIGGER YOU CALL NICE.
There’s lots of black dick on that team, get busy. White power is coming back because of race traitors like you.
Know what you get when you cross a nigger and a white nigger lover ? a  WHIGGER. THAT IS YOU !!!!
Mark WHIGGER Cuban. A White storm is brewing Mr. Cuban, you and those niggers like you better evacuate.

Josh Howard’s Problems Must Be Addressed

Special to the Star-Telegram

You can’t fix stupid. Somebody said that the other day, and it sure fits Dallas Mavericks forward Josh Howard’s actions the last few weeks.

The Mavericks can’t trade him now. That’s right. They can’t trade him because they won’t get value for him.

Howard’s play was absolutely horrible in the playoffs against the New Orleans Hornets. He shot just 29 percent from the floor.

Off the court, his actions were almost unforgivable.

The coach asked his players to be focused for the playoffs and cut out the parties. J-Ho decided he needed a birthday bash for himself after Game 4 at a Dallas nightclub.

He should have been ashamed to show up in public. Remember he was el stinko, bricking 3 of 16 shots for a measly six points as the Mavs went down 3-1 in the series.

It was the ultimate disrespect for the head coach and a reason why Avery Johnson is no longer employed by the team. Howard clearly didn’t care what Johnson had to say and wasn’t focused on winning a title.

It was stupid of Howard to go on Michael Irvin’s radio show and proclaim his love for smoking weed in the off-season the day of a playoff game and with his team in an 0-2 series hole. I wondered if he was high to admit to breaking the law, proclaiming “other players use it” as some type of defense, and causing a distraction that was not needed.

Howard’s good name with the Mavericks has taken a beating, and he’s to blame.

He deserved for fans to be upset with him. We know Dirk Nowitzki was sick of Howard’s antics, telling the media after the Mavs were sent on summer vacation:

“Bad timing in the playoffs,” he said. “It’s time to just concentrate about basketball and focus on it… not let any distractions come up.”

Josh Howard isn’t a bad guy. He’s just not a smart one, even if he attended Wake Forest University.

Back in the late ’90s, Washington traded away Chris Webber because he was making dumb off-the-court decisions. He matured while he was with the Kings and rewarded them with some exciting teams while the Wizards went nowhere with good guys Mitch Richmond and Otis Thorpe.

The Mavericks want to avoid that type of personnel mistake, so I don’t see Howard going anywhere. He needs some guidance and probably a drug counselor.

Maybe they can fix stupid.

Josh Howard Apologizes

Mavs former All Star Josh Howard writes to his fans..I’m sorry for smoking that stuff on his website.

He failed to apologize for stinking it up on the court in this playoff series against the Hornets.

Josh Howard Likes His Weed

I guess Josh Howard made sure his trade value went down before the Mavericks get sent home for the playoffs.

Josh went on the Michael Irvin show and said that he likes to smoke marijuana, but only in the offseason.

It makes me remember that line from Dave Chappelle in the movie Half Baked, “Now I don’t do drugs…just weed.”

You can hear the interview as Howard explains his “personal choice”.

Why go on the radio before Game 3 in the playoffs against the Hornets and reveal this?  The game will be in Dallas, the Mavs are down 0-2.  It’s just bad timing and against the law.

The season is going up in smoke.  Poor Avery Johnson.
