Y'all are just telling on yourselves by simply not being able to read, or the fact that you can read but somehow your anger about a black person speaking up is preventing you from actually processing information.

Stay up all night building your soapbox?

You’re analyzing all the angles, but there’s no way Elijah lied?

I don’t think analyzing all the angles means what you think it does.
What I don't understand about his argument is that he keeps insinuating that these exit interviews are intense which they aren't. They tend to be focused on what the player did well and what they need to work on in the offseason. Particularly with minimum contract guys like Millsap. There is absolutely no reason his exit interview would be some intense situation.

1. I dont know a lot of background on Elijah other than his family (which by all accounts are great/humble people, not a family that is going to toss dirt just to toss dirt), so I guess there is a chance he has some shady things there that I'm unaware of

2. I just cant see any motive for him to lie. This has a higher chance of hurting him than it does DL. Maybe there is some angle I'm not seeing, but the revenge for firing angle just doesnt seem to fit when he was clearly underqualified and Utah gave him an opportunity. Could he still be bitter, sure, but he has more of a reason to be bitter to the other teams that cut him and never gave him regular minutes or even let him onto a regular season roster.

3. Its' not like Elijah held onto this and popped it at the worst possible time for the Jazz. It isnt the playoffs. It's smack dab in the middle of the regular season. It's fully understandable why someone would hold onto this and wait until they were out of any NBA position.

If DL did in fact say it we'll have some clarity very soon.

Bigots, especially bigots with power, don't make these kinds of comments just once.

Someone else will come forward.
People can say things. DL doesnt have to be a bigot for him to slip up and have a moment where he says something. People can hide things. I often say a lot of curse words and inappropriate things but I go into work and I'm a good boy.

There's no reason why an open discussion where people are being honest and critical can get intense? You being for real or just putting the blinders on?

How does it have a higher chance of hurting Elijah than it does DL. Elijah is out of the league. How is it going to hurt him more?

If this happened I'm wondering what was said in the conversation ( leading up) that would make DL lose his mind and say that. With Snyder being there maybe EM was unhappy about playing time and the conversation got heated. Of course, we're all speculating on this thread trying to dissect because we want to know the truth. Not knowing what happened is frustrating because it's a serious accusation.

He still works in a NBA-adjacent business working for the Millsap's basketball training center in Atlanta. He might want a NBA job at some point as a coach/trainer. That door could be closed if the people hiring think you are someone who is going to speak out against power.

Most of the people on this board (myself included) have said a lot worse than what Dennis Lindsey is accused of saying. Maybe he did. Maybe he didn't.

However, we didnt just say it, we have and continue to WRITE IT DOWN under an avatar that hides our face. It's published for those of you who need someone to look up something inappropriate or seedy or slanderous or racist or sexist.

I get that his position matters but we're all guilty at some level of a double standard.

If he said it, he should be reprimanded. It wouldn't be right. But all of us need to hold ourselves to a higher standard on the INTERNET FORUMS we subscribe to. Especially if we think we are somehow contributing to change by labeling people as bigots and STFUs, etc.

Deloy Hansen and Donald Sterling had long historys full of a steady flow of filth streaming from their mouths. I think there is a big difference between that and this IF it holds true.

Whoever is not guilty of saying something inappropriate at some point over the last 10 years, keep throwing your stones.

If that's the case do you think he should be fired?

Not a leading question, just want to know your opinion.
