There’s a convention of extremely rich black people taking place at Madison Square Garden tonight. It’s called the 2007 NBA Draft. Of course, there will be some white people there, too. Almost all the owners, GMs and other people with power are Caucasian (which should come as no surprise to anyone). But we have come a long way from the days of Sambo, when blacks used to jump, twirl and dance just to entertain their white superiors. Surely, we wouldn’t subject them to that in this day and age. Instead, they just jump, twirl and dunk to entertain the white folks. Yep, things have really changed.
But I digress. The hometown Knicks have the 23rd pick in tonight’s draft, but unless Jesus Christ is still available late in the first round, it’s going to be difficult to find a player who can turn around this franchise. And even if Jesus did slip that far, Isiah Thomas would probably trade him for some loafers and bag of Fritos. “Seriously guys, it’s a great deal! Just wait until you see how comfortable these shoes are . . .”
Anyway, we’ll keep you updated.
