    [QUOTE=Green Jets & Ham;3975994]If you consider all the success Duke has had maybe every school should recruit Toms and Honkies

    :D[/QUOTE]

    and while Jimmy King complained about Michigan players being considered dumb...if you'll recall, the white North Carolina players on the sideline yelled "call a timeout" to Chris Weber at the end of the game, when Michigan had no timeouts.:eek:

    #1 It's True, Duke only recruits certain types of black athletes
    #2 There is nothing wrong with that
    #3 There is nothing wrong with what Jalen Rose, Ray Jackson or Jimmy King said, in fact I think if you watch the clip on First Take they come across well especially Jimmy King..

    actually, referring to the black duke players as uncle toms is wrong and can not be defended.

    The choice of words (and again from the clip the only person who used that term was Jalen Rose ) was not the best but it's the truth..

    I pretty much agree with you
    but calling Grant Hill an Uncle Tom just isn't right

    I'm certainly not above bashing my alma mater, but Rose's comment is over the line as well as inaccurate. Corey Maggette, Elton Brand, Will Avery, Luol Deng (and many others) are all stereotypical Duke players??
