1. Laron Profit: As much as I loved the documentary on the Fab Five, was I the only person who thought it was incomplete because we never got to hear from Chris Webber on several different issues, including the timeout he called and Ed Martin?
2. Etan Thomas: I thought the documentary on the Fab Five was great and I thought Grant Hill’s response was wonderful. I can only pray that my kids talk about be with that much pride. But is it difficult for people to relate to Jalen Rose when he described the jealousy he felt (at age 17) when looking at Grant Hill and the relationship he had with his dad and the fact that he came from a good environment and Jalen Rose had the opposite experience never meeting his father and growing up poor? Is it difficult to understand where he is coming from?
3. Etan Thomas: Did everyone misinterpret what Jalen Rose was actually saying in the documentary? I definitely didn’t hear him say that Grant Hill was less black because he had a father. Or that a true black family is one where the father is not in the home or any of the other accusations I have been reading.
4. Etan Thomas: When Jalen Rose described how he viewed Duke players (when he was 17) was he simply stating a common perception of the elitism that has always surrounded the Duke program whether accurate or not?
5. Laron Profit: While I loved the Fab Five documentary, has anyone seen the documentary done on the UNLV program run by Tark and highlighted by his 1990 National Championship team and the ’91 team that lost to Duke in the semifinals? Must see TV if you are a college basketball fan!
6. Laron Profit: With the recent comments made by Adrian Peterson, comparing the NFL to “modern day slavery” I think it would be unfair to the people who were actual slaves in this country or other countries around the world. I do however think that he could have used the word “exploitation” to describe the way the owners have tried to treat the players in the NFL.
7. Etan Thomas: Would anyone disagree that college athletes, particularly football and basketball players, are being exploited by not being paid after bringing in millions of dollars?
8. Etan Thomas: Correct me if I’m wrong but if on April 6th the court grants the NFLPA’s petition and issues an injunction preventing the NFL from locking out its players, won’t the NFL be forced to soften its position? Furthermore, wouldn’t such a ruling by the court strengthen our (NBPA) bargaining position and thus encourage the NBA to reconsider its hardline position?
