The NBA Hall of Shame Team! Don’t Put On That Dress!

 Gary Norris Gray-BASN-Staff Reporter

 OAKLAND, CA.- Why does this nation, the American media, and Hollywood take the tallest, strongest, wealthiest, and most celebrated Black basketball players and emasculate them before an international audience?

These same organizations subjugate their strong Black manhood. This emasculation was done with their permission. The question should be asked why?

Answer, it is to defuse these talented Black athletes of their political, social, and economic power in America. How can we believe a strong Black male wearing a blonde wig and a dress? This is done time and time again to SAMBO-IZE these men. This is the new slave and master plan just as it was in the 1700-1900.

It has not changed on the basketball floor either, men of darker hue are still watched closely. Fact:- When LeBron James broke his nose a few years ago in Miami the league told James he could not wear a black mask to protect his face. The NBA stated it scared the fans and instructed James to wear a clear mask.RESIZEDheat-lebron-mask

Can’t have a strong Black man being a super-hero. A Miami Heat Batman.

Light skin slaves were the house negroes while the darker slaves tended the masters field. Stephan Curry and Klay Thompson-Warriors are the current darlings of the league while Draymond Green-Golden State, Chris Paul-Los Angeles Clippers, James Harden-Houston Rockets, and Rajon Rondo-Sacramento Kings are the outcast and the trouble makers.

 I understand the political, social, and economic battle that (LGBT) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community wage every day in this country. This article is not about them. This article is about strong African American males that are professional basketball players that are putting on dresses and becoming feminized for profit.

This article is about the neutering and making these athletes a non-political threat.

These same entities will not allow this to happen with prominent Caucasian basketball players with the exception on Halloween in October and Gay Pride Festivals the last weekend in June. These young men do NOT sell products in commercials either. The question should be asked WHY?

The United States of America still has a serious problem with strong, intelligent, and handsome Black males. America still recognizes these strong men as a threat to their so called security. Our 44th President of the United States understands this and so do many other African American males.


*Will Stephan Curry or Klay Thompson star guards for the Golden State Warriors be the next one?

Will Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors be next?

Or Will Russell Westbrooks star guard for the Oklahoma City Thunder be next?

Wearing dresses really does not suit African American males

*Larry Johnson-Charlotte Hornets aka “Grandmamma”RESIZEDlarry johnsonRESIZEDlarry johnson-basketball

Johnson was selected first overall in the 1991 NBA draft by the Charlotte Hornets, and won the NBA Rookie of the Year Award in his first season. He also competed in the 1992 Slam Dunk Contest at the NBA All-Star Weekend in Orlando, finishing second to Cedric Ceballos of the Phoenix Suns.

The power forward-center moved on to the 1999 Eastern Conference Champion New York Knicks who many basketball fans still do not like because of their rough style of play on the court.

Mr. Johnson sold his soul to the Converse Shoe Company after the executives changed the commercial without informing him. The original version Magic Johnson-Los Angeles Lakers and Larry Bird-Boston Celtics had Larry Johnson on the operating table to make him the perfect player. Combining the talents of both players on the names. Johnson and Larry. They scrapped the idea and went with Grandmama because it was easier to produce. Mr. Johnson signed the contract and took the money before the change. Converse has not looked back while Johnson retired with the regret of being remembered as Grandmama and not his basketball skills in 2001.


*LeBron James-Cleveland Cavaliers aka “Solid Gold Dancer”RESIZEDLeBron_James_(15662939969)RESIZEDlabron james

He has started at the small forward and power forward positions. James has won three NBA championships (2012, 2013, 2016), four NBA Most Valuable Player Awards (2009, 2010, 2012, 2013), three NBA Finals MVP Awards (2012, 2013, 2016), two Olympic gold medals (2008, 2012), an NBA scoring title (2008), and the NBA Rookie of the Year Award (2004). He has also been selected to 12 NBA All-Star teams, 12 All-NBA teams, and six All-Defensive teams, and is the Cavaliers’ all-time leading scorer.

LeBron James has brought the city of Cleveland the first professional championship since the 1964 Cleveland Browns.


*DeAndre Jordan-Los Angeles Clippers aka “State Farm Blondie Wife” “MY RINGS ARE STOLEN”

RESIZED260px-DeAndre_Jordandeandre jordan

Now State Farm Insurance Company is receiving money from African Americans via this commercial.

Jordan was selected with the 35th overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2008 NBA draft. Due to injuries among the Clippers’ low post players, Jordan was pushed into the starting lineup for the January 19, 2009 game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. In his first game as a starter, he recorded 6 blocks, 10 rebounds, and 8 points in 34 minutes of game play. In the January 21, 2009 game against the Los Angeles Lakers, he played 43 minutes and recorded a career-high 23 points. This included 10 dunks, which had only been accomplished by two others players (Dwight Howard and Shaquille O’Neal) over the past 10 NBA seasons.
*Charles Barkley – Philadelphia 76ers aka “Ms. Weight Watcher”RESIZEDcharles barkleyc03-barkley-before-13-1_1

Nicknamed “Chuck“, “Sir Charles“, and “The Round Mound of Rebound“, Barkley established himself as one of the National Basketball Association’s most dominating power forwards. He was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 5th pick of the 1984 NBA draft. He was selected to the All-NBA First Team five times, the All-NBA Second Team five times, and once to the All-NBA Third Team. He earned eleven NBA All-Star Game appearances and was named the All-Star MVP in 1991. In 1993, he was voted the league’s Most Valuable Player and during the NBA’s 50th anniversary, named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. He competed in the 1992 and 1996 Olympic games and won two gold medals as a member of the United States’ “Dream Team”. Barkley is a two-time inductee into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, being inducted in 2006 for his individual career, and in 2010 as a member of the “Dream Team”.

Charles Barkley called Weight Watchers the biggest scam in America and the company dropped him from the commercials.

Barkley has not won a NBA Title playing for three different teams in eighteen years.

*Shaquille O’Neal-Los Angeles Lakers aka “Shaq Diesel”RESIZEDshaqRESIZED-SHAQ-LAKER

He quickly became one of the best centers in the league, winning Rookie of the Year in 1992–93 and later leading his team to the 1995 NBA Finals. After four years with the Magic, O’Neal signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Lakers. They won three consecutive championships in 2000, 2001, and 2002. Amid tension between O’Neal and Kobe Bryant, O’Neal was traded to the Miami Heat in 2004, and his fourth NBA championship followed in 2006. Midway through the 2007–2008  season he was traded to the Phoenix Suns. After a season-and-a-half with the Suns, O’Neal was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2009–10  season. O’Neal played for the Boston Celtics in the 2010–11 season before retiring.

* Kobe Bean Bryant-Los Angeles Lakers aka “White Hot”RESIZEDkobe bryant in white?????????????????????????

He entered the NBA directly from high school and won five NBA championships with the Lakers. Bryant is an 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, and 12-time member of the All-Defensive team. He led the NBA in scoring during two seasons, and ranks third on both the league’s all-time regular season scoring and all-time postseason scoring lists. He holds the NBA record for the most seasons playing with one franchise for an entire career.

Kobe Bryant is the son of basketball star Joe ‘Jellybean’ Bryant who played for the Philadelphia 76ers.

These are the basketball stars that have donned dresses during their career. Do you notice that all have something in common? The exception to the rule is Charles Berkley.

If this trend continues it would exclude Klay Thompson and Stephan Curry but would leave the door open for Russell Westbrooks and Draymond Green.

Do we need to explain this? The common factor, COLOR TONE.

The darker African American star will be most likely to be wearing dresses in the future to neutralize BLACK MALE POWER.

Ashley Naples on the website states :-There is an overwhelming entertainment history in America of black people being used for entertainment of whites.  The black male actor is not usually seen as a diverse creature capable of playing many types of roles.  He is sometime typecast as the buffoon or the clown on screen, only given access to positions that are one dimensional.  The number of roles available to a black man usually consist of playing the part of the brutish tough guy from the hood, the silly clown that makes everyone laugh, or the big, strong athlete that leaves the audience marveling at his physical prowess.

The Los Angeles Clippers State Farm family commercial is currently running on television, WHO IS NEXT?

As brother King Salim Khalfani WCLM 1450 radio, Richmond, Va. states – “There wasn’t/isn’t anything humorous about this!”
