    Larry Bird was the best IMO because of his scoring ability, clutch shooting prowess, killer instinct, ability to rebound & make key passes...and he didn't have the caste "god" status of Jordan (not the mega, massive pro-caste push/hype machine as Jordan). Bird was the best ever...period!Edited by: DixieDestroyer

    To put in into perspective, he's the same age Joe Louis was when he was knocked out by Marciano. Only Louis didn't have the injuries, or the four-year period of inactivity before the fight.

    But then, Sam Peter is no Rocky Marciano, so I think Vitali's chances of winning are very good!Edited by: JD1986

    i stumbled across this link while reading DraftDaddy. it recounts the phenomenal story of John Stearns, an incredible two-sport athlete for the University of Colorado.

    this illustrates how incredible a white kid can become if he busts his butt and is given an opportunity.

    some excerpts:

    what a great example for white kids everywhere! [​IMG]

    This probably doesn't count for much, but I saw three young black men at a gas station today, and all three were wearing basketball jerseys. One was wearing a Dwayne Wayde, but the other two were wearing Steve Nash and one was wearing Bill Lambeer of all people!

    Every once in a while you see something cool like that, Giovani.

    However most peculiar combination of all time goes to this one. I was driving down Broad Street (the "main drag" in Philadelphia) and saw an elderly black man walking down the street. Can you guess what he was wearing? A Jason Sehorn jersey. This is weird because:

    -Giants shirt in Philly. Bad idea.
    -Black man + white cornerback?
    -Elderly?

    Also used to see some Larry Bird shirts around my high school every once in a while. Some black guys can recognize talent!

    I've noticed this phenomenon too: the black dude wearing the white athletes' jersey. Perhaps, a Chrebet or a Sehorn jersey - two white players at nearly all black positions-is considered rare and precious by the extension that those players are rare and precious in the predominantly black NFL. So, they're like gold and valued as such - and not because of black support of white athletes.

    But any exposure is good exposure. Unfortunatley, though, owners haven't noticed - or just don't care- that Wayne Chrebet jersey sells off the chart. You'd think that might persuade some owners to field a few more whites at skill positions. <?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><O:p></O:p>Edited by: Alpha Male

    this was mentioned on another thread, but it deserves a spot here, too.

    white London street baller Stuart Tanner embarrassed Devin Harris in a game of one-on-one in England recently. the video has over 3.5 million views on YouTube, and its popularity has inspired the negro harris to claim he was hustled by, among other things, being told Tanner was a "special olympics kid." [​IMG]

    harris' lame excuses have been completely refuted by Tanner's brother. Tanner's brother does a good job of pointing out the ridiculousness of harris' comments, but he does grovel about how much better harris is than his brother and that Tanner would never be able to really compete with such a vastly superior player. ugh. [​IMG]

    regardless, the reality is that an un-paid white dude in a v-neck sweater kicked an NBA player's ass on the court. [​IMG] and that is always cool!

    in a similar story to the one above, regular-looking white dude David Kalb destroyed "King" James in a nationally-sponsored game of horse competition. [​IMG]

    as the video shows, Kalb, in his worn-out t-shirt completely annihilates lebron, who showed up in a stretch limo-SUV. [​IMG]

    does this mean lebron's new nickname should be King Nothing? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That Steinlager commercial is utterly fantastic as well as totally subversive.

    I love the hell out of it!

    i read a link about Missouri's superb tight end Chase Coffman, and i thought the message in it was spot on. in fact, i think if more white folks took its message to heart, in my opinion we'd be a lot better off.

    I dont know how many of you will be with me on this one, but my favorite athlete of all times is Pistol Pete Maravich. My goodness he was good. He is the reason I picked up a basketball as a kid. He also sufferd, in my opinion, from extreme racism. I read his autobiogrphy, and two biography wrightings from 3rd parties. The black teamates he was forced to play with hated him as a rookie because of how much he got paid. There were times when he would be trapped in the corner, and them superior black athletes would actualy TURN THEIR BACKS ON HIM ,rather than come help their teamate. He got quite a few turnovers this way, and that is exactly what the jungle ballers wanted. For that white boy that was so painfully better than them to have sub par stats. Still he is one of the greatest. I Storngly recomend the biography called Maravich. As well as the one called The Pistol. If Peter Maravich would have been black he would have been treated so much better ,that he would be more respected than Air Jordan.&nbsp ; SomeQuotes about The Pistol- - - -Bob Dylon"He was somthing to see, mop top, flop sock ,holy terror of basketball, he could play blind". The Racist Kenny Smith "You know, I marveled at the skills of Jordan, Magic, Bird , Abdul-Jabar, The Stilt, Jerry West, Oscar, who were all maybe better basketball playersthan Pete, but none could reach those magical otherworldly qualitiesPistol did." Phil Jackson "Petes game was Lordly, inimitable, and he should be considerd the most skilled player ever". Pat Riley "He was the best ball handler any of us will ever see"Kobe Bryant " I learned all my tricks from Pistol" Magic Johnson " He was just the man. I remember sitting there shaking my head , and saying how did he do that" Isiah Thomas "Oh my, He did things that guys still today cant do. If he played today he would be a God." Heres to the most underated stepped on white athlete from the 70s. The timeless PISTOL PETE MARIVICH! I hope to meet this hero on the other side. Bless all my Caste Football Brethren.

    I often attribute my useless skill of spinning a basketball on one finger to Pistol Pete. [​IMG] Speaking of one-on-one basketball, sometime around the late 1970's the weekly televised NBA game featured, at halftime, a one-on-one showdown between NBA players taped sometime in advance. I believe the format was that each week a player would be eliminated and the winner would move on to the next round. Anyone with a little more clarity please jump in. I just remember Mike Newlin of the Houston Rockets as a very tough player to beat and giving everyone fits . A lot of water has gone under the bridge since then, so forgive my fuzziness. It could be the he won the whole shebang one year. I can't find information on the web concerning the these halftime contest.

    I think it's been mentioned before, but
    Stefan Holm's Ridiculous Plyo Training actually looks kind of weird, like Super Mario the way he bounces over those 6'6"[?] hurdles. As one of the YouTube comments puts it "looks like he typed in a cheat for high jumpin on a game or somthin ".Edited by: Observer

    here's a pretty sweet video of Joe Calzaghe, complete with an original brit-sounding rap with pointed lyrics aimed at Hopkins and other Calzaghe-haters.

    enjoy. [​IMG]

    The funniest thing about this video is reading all the comments about how Lebron "LET" him win. Yeah right. [​IMG]

    I loved C Darwin's link "best white history video ever" to School House Rock, though the sewing machine had several inventors that are not listed.

    Oh wait, I checked(I worked for a sewing machine manufacturer that claims to be founded by the inventor) and the video had the earliest lock stitch sewing machine inventor. I was thinking of the overlock sewing machine. Edited by: Freedom

    Simply magnificent.

    Am I the only one who thinks the Zionists will bulldoze these monuments of perseverance and creativity when there isn't enough of us to fight for what's ours?

    I think there are definitely similar goals when it comes to the Zionists and Mohammeden invaders. Two sides of the same coin if you ask me.

    Great vids.

    In the 100 years 1250 - 1350, France moved more stone building the great cathedrals than did Egypt in its entire milleniums of history in building the pyramids.
    (Not sure if the numbers are quite right; writing from memory.)
