    Default Danny Fortson on "Gangsterism"

    http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/sports/3572650.html

    Now that's just gangster

    Sonics forward Danny Fortson, suspended for two games for cursing referee Sean Corbin, lashed into NBA vice president Stu Jackson in a long, disjointed tirade.

    "What Stu Jackson did is criminal, as far as I'm concerned," Fortson said. "It's like a gangster, somebody just strong-arming somebody and taking their money. That is a gangster move. Gangster. That is gangsterism.


    "I am not going to let Stu Jackson gangster me out of money for something that wasn't even properly investigated. I don't know what I am going to do yet, but I am going to do something, I am not going to sit there and let him strong-arm me."


    Fortson, by the way, said he didn't curse Corbin, but used the expletive as an adjective describing the call, adding that Corbin lied in his report to the league and Jackson, gangster that he apparently is, did not investigate.


    "Just because he is Stu Jackson and all that, maybe I am supposed to be scared and not speak my mind," Fortson said. "But if I see something that is wrong, and I feel wronged, I am going to speak my mind. As simple as that.


    "If you are going to be in that type of position, you better even things out. All men are created equal. In the United States, you are equal. Is the NBA a communist bloc? Or is this an equal democracy? He needs to figure that one out. And if he doesn't, I'm going to make it a democracy."

    I think Fortson needs to be a rapper not a baller. Maybe he and Ron could form a group: "The Wronged Ballers"
