- WORD OF WARNING -

A LOT of infractions have been handed out in this thread, so be warned, keep on topic or RISK BEING BANNED!!! we don't need clowns ruining this thread for the rest of us.

Please leave out overly gruesome images.


-------------------------------------------------------------------

Since the previous two got deleted, I have taken it upon myself to create a third one.

Len Bias

Perhaps one of the greatest players in basketball history, Len Bias was drafted to the Boston Celtics in the 80s (90s?). This picture, to me, represents tragedy, because not less than 48 hours later, he celebrated his draft into the Celtics by snorting coke and died. It's a shame to know that he died, especially since he was drafted to such a renowned and legendary team. Many people say that he could have been as good, if not better than the greatest player of all, Michael Jordan, which brings me to my next picture.

This only shows you what PD in Oakland have to deal with on a daily basis. Idiots! there are far better means of protesting or rallying but people in Oakland its like they have damn common sense and just would rather act violently and point fingers at cops but when one of them shoots its like no one any fucking thing. Cops have to deal with it and that stupid girl shouldn't be point her finger they're there to stop the idiots rioting in the street.
