Mike Wilbon Comment

Wednesday, January 31, 2007

Noticed this at USA Today, and it jumped out at me. In an article about the NBA All-Star Game being in Las Vegas....Wilbon is quoted as saying the following.....

"It's a younger, more diverse, hipper urban crowd," says Michael Wilbon, a Washington Post sports columnist and ABC/ESPN analyst who's covered both games many times. "While I still call it Black Thanksgiving, it's a bigger celebration than that. At the core of it is the sensibilities of African-Americans and the parties we give."
Wait what? Black Thanksgiving??? I'm confused on how to take this and maybe you can help. I'm thinking either A) It's Wilbon making a "Soul Food" type of joke saying that African-Americans make a party out of every event....or B) He's saying that is a problem with today's African-Americans. Either way it was kind of odd.....I don't know if I should laugh or be weirded out.

It's especially odd if it is a joke because it's really out of place. The whole article is slanted negatively towards the ASG weekend. In fact I'm lost on the whole article.....that's what I get for ready the Mc Paper online.

Wilbon is an asshole! Worst voice I have ever heard on TV. Who gave this clown a gig?

You're overreacting. Wilbon has been using that phrase for a couple of years now. The NBA All Star has a tremendous social scene. I guess a White equivalent would be the Cocktail Party or any Nascar race.

All he is saying is that the event is so important on the social calendar that it is almost like a holiday.

That's why there are SOOOO many celebrities (the hip, urban kind) at those games.
