    Default Heads will explode in NBA locker rooms IF...

    ...a copy of Blazing Saddles is ever viewed by the players.

    The Oklahoma City Thunder said play-by-play announcer Brian Davis used "offensive and inappropriate" words when he said during Wednesday's broadcast that Russell Westbrook was "out of his cotton-pickin' mind."

    "We think obviously the use of that term was offensive and inappropriate, and I expressed that to Brian last night," Dan Mahoney, the team's vice president of broadcasting, told The Norman Transcript on Thursday. "Brian assures me that it was not meant in any derogatory way, and he apologizes. But again, we feel strongly that it's inappropriate and offensive."
    I'm really glad Sabonis is playing in Indiana.

    For the record, Richard Pryor was one of the screenplay writers working with Mel Brooks.

    Love that movie, and you're right...it would explode heads.

    How much we've lost from becoming PC. A lot of bad things have been laid aside as well, but the ability to make fun of oneself is a great gift.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    The hypocrisy that dares not be mentioned is young people's affinity for rap music, completely overlooking the vile lyrics as "art".

    True. I don't listen to (C)rap as a matter of choice.
