    The word he should have used is lemurs. They are quick little lemurs doesn't offend anyone.

    I'd give Kiwi a pass here.

    Steve, it feels like you could've done a better job of getting "little monkeys" into the thread title.

    It would have gotten more clicks.

    You have a lot to learn about the posting business, pal.

    Poster The Giant -

    I did think about that for roughly 3 seconds. I then realized that I really didn't care.

    Your criticism has been noted and forwarded to HR.

    Weird since I consider neither quick for their position especially Klay who's kinda slow.

    I doubt anyone was really offended by it anyways, it was obviously not meant in a racial way. Just the media trying to create a story. Let's move on.

    Steven Adams is awesome

    he'll be in the talk of becoming great.. how he just came in there and took over and lead them to a championship. looks feasible.

    One of the best announcers in all of sports, especially boxing got bamboozled for using the same term. It's horrible that people are easily offended by everything these days and love to create controversy.

    I guess in New Zealand you can actually say stuff without worrying about the PC police pulling you over.

    They get a little touchy when you bring up valid comparisons to simian traits. Wider nostrils, bigger lips, skull shapes.. can't blame Adams for not being intimately familiar with the cultural dictatorship where enthusiastic self-delusion is a feature, not a side effect.
