Re: Towards a Dying Breed

Let me be devil's advocate here for a moment. I know what he said was horrible, but what I cannot understand is how can a private conversation be recorded without one's permission, and be turned in to the authorities and be used against that person without due process. In California there is actual law about recording one's conversation without authority. Sir Tony DeCoteau, maybe you can get some legal information and get back to us. What are your thoughts on this anyway? I think what he did was not right, however were his rights not violated according to the law? we do know a lot of these folks always have a way of slipping through the cracks, but it is still his team and Magic and the other sharks are just out there as opportunists awaiting the kill to make big bucks from black folks and call it business too.

You do realize we as a people spend too much we do not have especially on sports instead of educating our children. Not all of us will be Magics or Birds or Jorden

Re: Towards a Dying Breed

Thank you Duncan Charles for posting your thoughts. Really my friend, why should your opinion have to be like mine? That you have one is what really counts. All I care is that it doesn't get personal and cantankerous.

Now that this is said, let me address what you said.

>>Sir Tony DeCoteau, maybe you can get some legal information and get back to us.<<

I am not a lawyer, and doesn't have any more access than you have to the legal profession. If you want that information, why don't you get it yourself and get back to us?

>>I think what he did was not right, however were his rights not violated according to the law?<<
I can't answer that question. But I'll be surprised if the legal minds that work for the NBA did not take that question into consideration. That they acted so deliberately and severely tells me that they were on firm ground in rendering their decision. We'll just have to wait and see if they are opened to a legitimate legal recourse.
