Video: Black Thought – Respond/React (Live)

A Black Thought solo show without the rest of the Roots? I feel like he should do more of these. Not that having the band backing him takes anything away from his performance, but wouldn’t it be nice for his words to be the singular focus for a change? In this clip he does “Respond/React” @ the Silk Room in Philly.

    I understand how many rings you have determines ur legacy and elevates you from being a great player to “legend status”… But, No one was winning rings in that era other than Jordan… I’m willing to bet if Duncan was born 10 years earlier he’d be ringless too… Jordan shitted on a lot hall-of-famers championship aspirations.. Shoutout to Reggie, Payton, Ewing, Malone and Stockton….

    paying $60 for a PPV fight was sort of a big deal…cable bills used to be $200 back in the 90s so add $60 that was alot of money

  13. Charles Oakley Says:

    Boosie said iverson was garbage for the last 3 years, if avg 33ppg a game is garbage then……………….
    ^^
    i never said he was garbage, i agree he is a hall of famer, but i dont necessarily agree that his style of play was conducive to winning a championship. AI was nice, but how many guards who are the best player on their respective teams have won a championship. MJ and then……

  14. Charles Oakley Says:

    FUCKING *dead* at KG mention in the killer instinct.. people forget that niggas horrible first round knockouts in Minnesota
    ^^
    you can have a killer instinct without being good, but to to be one of the greats you must possess it. what i meant by that was that those were player who were willing to do whatever it took to win and always seemed focused. your twelfth man can have the KI, doesnt mean he should play….

  15. Joe 88 Says:

    Joe,

    how much did he avg in Denver?.. You said 33 I told you no it was 26..check the stats…Obviously your basketball knowledge is trash…

    I showed you the stats…READ JOE READ

    ^I said how much he avg 3 years ago, remember? You said he was gargae for the last 3 years remember? You are the one that need to do the reading boosie, smh. Obviously, your basketball knowledge is trash my nigga, anyone who belives iverson is barely a HOF basketball I.Q is pushing 0

    Shawn Kemp was nasty back in the day. For a couple years he was probably top 5 in the L. In the 96 finals he absolutely abused Rodman, which is kind of surprising considering that 6’7” drag queen used to guard shaq somewhat capably around that time period

    i dont know b… mj wanted to win.. he won.. as the leader of your team you gotta be able to take over when necessary.. kg doesnt have that.. which is why he had to get on a team with one to win his first ring… paul peirce doesnt give a FUCK what he has to do to win.. he just does.. and yes it took some time and players for him to get a ring too.. but at LEAST he got his team past the first round of the playoffs…

    like him or lump him (fuck kobe) but that nigga has a fucking assassin mentality to win.. he will cut your nuts off to beat you and THATS what i think some of the greats without rings dont have..

    jordan is the goat, the next 8 places are probably interchangeable.
    Bird, Magic, Kareem, Shaq, Kobe all played with multiple hall of famers or another all time great. i mean pippen was nice, but he isnt seeing kobe. and one pippen doesnt equal parish, mchale, dennis johnson, or worthy, kareem/magic. Olajuwon was the best player in the league for a couple years for carrying that team of role players to two championships

    Oakley’s Feuds

    In 2001, Oakley was one in the middle of one of basketball’s fiercest rivalries with Tyrone Hill. This rivalry came to a head in the 2001 NBA basketball playoff series between Oakley’s Toronto Raptors and Hill’s Philadelphia 76ers.

    In the 2000 season, Oakley was suspended and fined for throwing a basketball off Hill’s head after a morning shoot-around. Before a pre-season game at the start of the 2000-2001 season, Oakley slapped Hill and was not allowed to play in the game.

    In May, 2001, Hill paid Oakley $54,000 for a dice game that allegedly took place two summers prior. “A gentleman pays his debt within a week or two,” Oakley said of the payment.

    In the 2001 NBA playoffs, Oakley constantly chided teammate Vince Carter and even exchanged words with Carter’s mother. This was rumored to be over Carter letting Oakley and other teammates down during crunch time.

    Charles Oakley punched the Los Angeles Clippers’ Jeff McInnis in the jaw before a game in 2000. Rumor was that this was over a woman.

    Oakley had a rumored run-in with the producer of the 1989 NBA video Awesome Endings.

    In January 2002, Oakley committed a series of hard fouls against Shaquille O’Neal that led to a fight and wrestling match which spilled over from the paint to the Chicago Bulls bench on the other side of the floor. Oakley was suspended for two games, O’Neal for th

    You showed his stats to try and prove a Point which I already knew…and everyone else knew..

    2 of his top scoring seasons were on Losing teams…

    He got traded to a team while avg 25 pts per game….(he was a team cancer)
