Unless you were living under a rock last week, it was pretty difficult to avoid the LeBron James story, and part of that was the angry reaction by Cavaliers owner Dan Gardner following LeBron's announcement. Gardner described the spectacle last week as a 'several day, narcissistic, self-promotional buildup' and further suggested that LeBron was 'disloyal' and 'cowardly' and didn't exactly play at full strength during this year's playoff series with Boston.
Reverend Jackson rides to the rescue for us to tell us what Gardner REALLY meant: that the Cavs' owner really views LeBron as a runaway slave and THAT's why he's angry. Of course! The Rev helpfully explains that the owner's feelings of betrayal personify a slave-master mentality, and his comments are really an attack on all NBA players. He urges the players association to challenge Gardner.
For the salary LeBron James was paid, I'd really like to know where I can sign up to be a slave.
