Does Clarence Thomas know how to coach basketball? I think this job might be a good fit for him.



A basketball team with too many black players? No not the Boston Celtics…I’m talking about a high school team. These days (although stereotypical) most coaches would want black players. Former basketball coach Anthony Cheatham thinks his former employer is trying to white-out B-Ball. He has a lawsuit against one of the nation’s oldest all-dudes prep schools to prove as much. An All-Dudes (as in all boys) high school keeping out black basketball players? The NBA finals must not broadcast in Saltsburg, PA. Who is going to turn down the next MJ, or that dude that I don’t like that plays for the Lakers? Don’t get me wrong!! I’m not saying that white guys can’t play ball. It just doesn’t make sense not to recruit blacks due to the fact they are near basketball playing urban areas (i.e. Philly, NY). Some of the public schools in our urban areas are not that good. If a kid has a chance to use his jump shot to get an education, I support him 100%. That’s how you game the system (oops..let me keep that to myself). It’s going to be interesting to see where this lawsuit goes. I do wonder what Anthony Cheatham is doing in the meantime? If he is looking for a job, tell him that The University of Southern California needs a basketball coach. And trust me; they won’t have a problem with you recruiting black folks…not at all!!!!

Bottom-line - if you can ball, you will play; doesn't matter what color your skin is. Coaches are paid to win games, and a coach will play those players who he believes will give him the best chance to win. So, if white boy can play with the best, he'll play... even if he could only shoot 3s like clockwork. He'll play.

Shadow Act - Thanks for dropping by. I agree with you about the players (no matter the race) but if a school is keeping minorities out on purpose. That's just plain wrong...

Anthony Cheatham is a 1/2 negro playing the race card because his employer reprimanded himm for being a nuisance; Just another n1gger sitting on his ass looking to make some FREE money from the man! Read the lawsuit, this guy broke WPIAL rules and his bosses jumped on him, so he walked out of his job claiming racism.

The courts are going to nail this lazy 1/2 negro. Hats off to the Kiski lawyers for not giving into his bullshit. If Anthony Cheatham had a career he just tossed it into the gutter.

Anonymous - 1/2 Negro, Whole Negro. What does this have to do with the actual debate. Sure we can take a look at the lawsuit but will it reference Mr. Cheatham as a negro? I don't have a problem with people leaving comments but they need to leave the racial slurs at home. Post racial my arse!!!

How did Cheatham break any WPIAL rules when the school is not a member of the WPIAL? (This is the private school Kiski, located, as is noted, in Saltsburg, PA, not the public school Kiski Area, located in Vandegrift, PA. The "Kiski" that belongs to the WPIAL is Kiski Area--which isn't involved in this story at all!
