Brown David is a lifelong dissident and intellectual rebel. He despises political correctness, which replaces real, needy victims with narcissistic leftists out for a free meal.

He tweets when there’s something worth tweeting here. Award-winning journalist Matthew Syed recently wrote a compelling article on the rank hypocrisy evident in the tennis equal pay debate.

In most sports, they are free to compete against men, on an equal footing. They choose not to take up the invitation, except in a few rare exceptions, such as bowls and equestrianism. This is not supposed to be a trite point, or a chauvinistic one. It is merely to highlight the gall of those who campaign for equal pay.

Candace Parker was the catalyst at both ends of the court, and guards Odyssey Sims and Chelsea Gray outscored their counterparts Brilliant individual play and dynastic teams are how stars are made and fans are won over for life. Yet far too often in the women’s game, dominance has robbed the game of the drama needed to capture the attention and imagination of the casual sports fan. That’s why the Lynx-Sparks rivalry is so important to the game and to the future Hall of Famers playing in it.

Instead of wasting the drama of this series in a Western Conference final, the league last year smartly adjusted its playoff format so the top two teams would meet in the Finals, regardless of conference. In , the league expanded the Finals to a five-game series, and the format lets the drama build as the two best teams adjust and scheme for each other.

The morning saw the last games being played on the courts of King Edward VII School in Johannesburg, but the real fun came in the afternoon when some of the most promising young players representing the African continent faced each other in the Basketball without Borders Africa All-Star Game.

The 11th Basketball without Borders Africa camp concluded with an award ceremony where the top African young players were recognized for their contribution, leadership, performances and conduct at the camp. The four incredibly talented American gymnasts got the audience on their feet while showcasing their skills and having their own slam dunk competition in the air.

The Basketball without Borders Africa camp may have ended in the last cold spell of South African winter, but will be remembered for some of the most talented young African athletes who participated in the event. Four years ago it was Gorgui Dieng who was making his mark on youth basketball in Africa and raised the bar high for those who will choose to follow his footsteps. Johannesburg woke up to a chilly Saturday morning as the life skills and basketball action continued on the courts of King Edward VII School.

As on the morning before, both boys and girls started their third day at the camp with a life skills seminar. Kyrie Irving, Al Horford and Jerryd Bayless had headed to the courts before other coaches and players arrived to spend time with the youth and talk about leadership as well as share their life experiences and lessons.

When all the remaining NBA players and coaches arrived on the courts, it was all back to business. Skills stations and team practices took up the rest of the morning while the young boys and girls had an opportunity to learn from NBA players and coaches once again. Thabo Sefolosha had a special message for the children of the Boys and Girls Club who will be using the basketball court from now on.

Members of the New York Liberty basketball team, wearing the shirts that garnered fines from the league. Minnesota, New York and Dallas players all wore shirts with slogans in remembrance of two men who were shot by police and the five Dallas police officers who were killed in an attack on July 7. While, Minnesota players donned shirts with the slogan, “Change starts with us.

The team has worn the plain shirts multiple times including Wednesday morning, while the Fever and Mercury players wore theirs on Tuesday, with all incidents coming after the league’s memo. Minnesota Lynx players, who avoided a fine, only wore their shirts once and said they will shift their focus to addressing the issue in other ways. The protest caused a stir when police officers working security for the Lynx game on July 9 walked out in protest of the shirts.

The team hasn’t donned their shirts since receiving the league memo. Some players, though, were still upset at the decision. It’s not a race issue, not an anti-police issue, not a black or white issue. It’s a right or wrong issue. Obama supports LeBron’s decision to wear ‘I can’t breathe’ shirt http: I think it’s a very slippery slope.
