Default Leandro Barbosa's Mother Dies

Quote:
Leandro Barbosa's mother has passed away in Brazil, the Arizona Republic is reporting.

Citing a report at Globoesporte.com, Barbosa received the news Thursday night and was trying to arrange a flight to Sao Paulo.

He left training camp in late September to be with his mother in Brazil and returned to the Suns in mid-October when her condition improved.

Sucks.

It's not that I made an insensitive joke, it's the backlash from people who say I shouldn't talk like that while they ignore tragedy every single day that bugs me. If you don't care about them, why care about a comment? Is my joke, which was admittedly in poor taste, more important that the 20,000-30,000 people who die from starvation every day? Again, if they don't factor into your consciousness, then why let a stupid joke effect you? Does my joke mean more than their lives?

And I could see somebody being upset about it if I said it to his face, but I wasn't talking to him or his family. Nobody here is related to him and is effected by his loss. So really, save the sh!t for something that really matters please.
