Yeah, I saw this story yesterday.  Sadly, they’re pretty unapologetic about it too.
2018 Mock Trade Deadline:

Pelicans: Davis, Holiday, Vucevic, Rondo, Clarkson, Nance, Hart, Moore, Ilyasova, Ajinca, Hill, Miller, Jackson, Dotson, Dakari Johnson

Warriors:  KD, Steph, Klay, Draymomd, Iggy, Zaza, Young, Livingston, McGee, West, McCaw, Jones, Casspi, Jones, Looney

Google for picks.

How stupid and embarrassing.  And supremely unfunny.

When in college, pretty common to see black students name their intramural team the N Word spelled backwards.  I wonder if that is still done today without notice or comment. Obviously would never fly (nor should it) if white players did it.

Disgusting and revolting. Says a lot about parents, coaching and the league itself for letting this go on for so long.

How does somebody see that and not immediately stop it? PG-13 team names is one thing. Racial slurs are quite another.
