A potential new ongoing thread: Stupid Athlete Quotes.

Maybe we should have a "I've got to feed my family" subcategory on this, but here goes.

Sprewell allegedly made comments to female

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The NBA is reviewing comments Timberwolves swingman Latrell Sprewell allegedly made to a heckler during Minnesota's overtime victory Saturday over the Los Angeles Clippers, according to a newspaper report.

Sprewell responded to the female heckler with a sexually vulgar term, the Star Tribune of Minneapolis reported in its Tuesday editions.

The comment was apparently picked up by a courtside microphone and was broadcast by Los Angeles television station KTLA and by the Timberwolves' broadcast on KSTC television in Minnesota.

Tim Frank, vice president of basketball communications for the NBA, said league senior vice president Stu Jackson was reviewing the tape. A decision on possible punishment was unlikely before Tuesday.

A spokesman for the Timberwolves said the team had no comment.

KTLA-TV general manager Vincent Malcolm told the Star Tribune that the station had received as many as 15 complaints and will institute a seven-second delay in the future.

The incident is the latest controversy for Sprewell. Last month, he received a misdemeanor citation after arguing with a police officer during a traffic stop. Sprewell, who was a passenger in the vehicle, claimed he was treated unfairly.

The 34-year-old Sprewell also demand ed that the Timberwolves either extend his contract or trade him, saying, "I've got my family to feed." The comment by Sprewell, who will make $14.6 million this season in the final year of his deal, drew criticism from NBA commissioner David Stern.

I'd have to go with just about anything marbled mouthed Michael 'Playmaker' Irvin sez on Sunday Night Countdown. Sorry don't have a specific quote in mind, some would take multiple listenings just to understand it all.

China bans Nike commercial as insult to national dignity

By Audra Ang, The Associated Press

BEIJING China has banned a Nike television commercial showing Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James in a battle with an animated cartoon kung fu master, saying the ad insults Chinese national dignity.
The commercial, titled "Chamber of Fear," was broadcast on local Chinese stations and on state television's national sports channel before being pulled last month. It shows James, the Cleveland Cavaliers' reigning NBA rookie of the year, in a video game-style setting defeating the kung fu master, two women in traditional Chinese attire and a pair of dragons, considered a sacred symbol in traditional Chinese culture.

The advertisement "violates regulations that mandate that all advertisements in China should uphold national dignity and interest and respect the motherland's culture," the State Administration for Radio, Film and Television said on a statement posted Monday on its Web site.

"It also goes against rules that require ads not to contain content that blasphemes national practices and cultures."

The statement added: "The ad has received an indignant response from Chinese viewers."

It did not say why the advertisement was considered offensive. But communist officials are sensitive about the use of Chinese cultural symbols by Westerners, and might have been especially angered that the Nike advertisement showed the foreigner winning the fight.

James and Nike based the ads for the 19-year-old's Air Zoom LeBron II sneakers on films featuring martial arts icon Bruce Lee. James, who is a fan of Lee's work, said he was sorry that some found the ads offensive.

"It was never intended to hurt anybody or any culture or anything like that" James said following practice in Cleveland on Monday. "We put the ads together basically for kids."

James said Asian reporters told him they liked the commercials. He was disappointed they were pulled and will prevent some of his fans from seeing him.

"That's big. I need as much fans as I can get," he said.

James, who signed a seven-year, $90 million endorsement deal with Nike shortly before turning pro, hopes to have things patched up with his Chinese fans in time for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

"I'll be there in 2008, so maybe they'll love me a little more when I get there," said James, who played for the U.S. Olympic team this summer in Athens.

On Monday, James filmed a commercial for Bubblicious gum. His signature brand of the gum will be on the market next month.

Maurice Zhou, a spokesman in Shanghai for Beaverton, Oregon-based Nike Inc. said the company had no response except to say that it "respected the government's decision."

"We respect and follow the Chinese government's laws and regulations," Zhou said. He said he could not elaborate.

The Chinese television regulator tightened controls over programming in May by prohibiting the use of English words and imported programs that promote "Western ideology and politics."

The Nike advertisement is part of fast-growing foreign efforts to cash in on the huge popularity of basketball in China and the celebrity of James and other NBA players.

Last month, a series of Nike ads in Singapore designed to resemble graffiti stirred emotions in the Asian nation known for its attention to cleanliness and civic order.

The small, page-size posters featuring anime-style images of James were pasted over the ad panels of 700 bus stops, shocking commuters who were used to the ultratidy shelters. At least 50 commuters complained, shelter officials said.

There is that one classic list out. The NC State BBer talking about dribbling with the left AND right hands because he was 'amphibious' was one of them.

Wow. And I thought the FCC was uptight.

I wonder how that Virgin Mobile Chrismahanukwanzakah ad would go over there?
