Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Bryant Gumbel has injected race into the NBA lockout, saying the league commissioner is acting like a modern plantation overseer and treating the players like his personal boys.

His comments were bizarre and inflammatory.  Here's what you had to say.

Tracy first: "That was disgusting what Gumbel said."

And Bill writes: "Get him, Kelly. He was out of line."

Julie from Edmond: "... he has always had a HUGE chip on his shoulder and continues to play the race card when it doesn't apply."

Dennis from OKC says: "Never did care for either Gumbel."

Mike in Meeker: "… pardon me if I don't feel sorry for the players and the meager wages that they earn as I sit in Iraq making my $3400 a month."

Ann from Del City adds: "… this is also the same Bryant Gumbel who a few years ago dissed the Olympics because they were dominated by whites."

And Harold writes: "The real Slave Owners and overseers are these spoiled brat jocks!

They have been pampered and coddled, given a free pass thru school, catered to and worshiped."

Finally another viewer simply said: "Bryant Gumbel being Bryant Gumbel - nothing new!"
