That's very different than making an actual, literal case that, say,
Hubert Davis or Elton Brand are Uncle Toms. Rose is dismissive of Christian Laettner, but he actually says he only felt that way, "until I got on the floor with him." I'm not sure why that's wrong. I could fill a blog post about the objectionable thoughts I had at 19. It almost gives the thing too much credit to say people are "taking it out of context." From what I can tell, folks heard "Duke" and "Uncle Tom" and then stopped listening.
I can't wait to watch the whole thing.
UPDATE: My apologies for defaming Hubert Davis. Being an ACC dude, I should have remembered he was a Tar Heel.
