Old white men can be a curious lot. Through much of the country they’re bellyaching for freedom, against the tyranny of outside forces, like the government, taxes or unions from impeding them in any way. However, sometimes, ideals be damned, they need to stand up for other old white men who feel aggrieved by people exercising the very freedom they harp about defending.
On the day the Knicks introduced Carmelo Anthony after a months-long courtship, the Nets acquired the alleged coach-killing Deron Williams from the Jazz. Not to mention this being less than a year after LeBron, D-Wade and Chris Bosh orchestrated a coup that allowed the three to join forces in Miami. And let’s not forget that Chris Paul isn’t exactly thrilled with his situation either playing for the league-owned Hornets. Well, this isn’t sitting well with old white sportswriters and talking heads.
