I am beginning to wonder if being on twitter is really a good thing for athletes.

Over the weekend, Reggie Bush tried to make a joke, but in using the word Nazi, offended people. I think we are too uptight. Using the word doesn’t mean one supports that particular group or cause or place in history; however, it just shows either a lack of sensitivity or just plain ignorance.

Worse, Steve Blake’s family received death threats on his wife’s twitter account after he missed a shot. It’s ludicrous, and people should be exposed. If those people’s phone number address or email ends up in social media circles, that would be great.

I’m tired of these gutless punks hiding beyond perceived anonymity in social media. Expose the cowards!
