Knicks' Larry Johnson calls for all-black basketball league - Washington Times

Wow - I guess we can have all-black and all-white leagues. Maybe the winners can play for the all-race championship.

So should this guy be fired from the Knicks?

Tough to sell season packages in Salt Lake, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Phoenix, and maybe 5 other cities.

Maybe Johnson should look at Knick crowds.

I wonder why this story doesn't get coverage from the MSM? Does it just not mesh well with the rich, racist, white guys narrative?

70 years ago we had all black (plus Roy Campanella) and all white baseball leagues.

I guess Larry Johnson wouldn't have minded
