IMO… who cares? He’s getting more coverage of what he did at USC than in New Orleans. You know why? He’s been a bust in the NFL. That’s all anyone should care about right? If he’d just ball, they’d leave him alone.

Here’s the latest scoop about why KK & Reggie broke up… Kanye West! It appears that Bush saw text messages K Dub sent to KK and it was on from there. Here’s a little more from Hollywood Gossip.
Looks like Mr. Bush is ready to focus on football now and keep it 100. We’ve been wanting this kid to bust out ’cause we think he has game. As we’ve said before, he cannot carry the mail for 20 – 25 carries per game… but we believe he’s an easy 10 TDs per year 1,500 all purpose yards per year baller. What may limit his overall production is the fact that the Saints have a lot of weapons. Bush may be better on a different team that will give him more opportunities within the offense.
Reggie Bush is very easy to knock due to his relationship with KK (Kim Kardashian). She’s a reality tv-star and social icon who has created a brand that has overtaken Paris Hilton as the ‘It Girl’ in Hollywood. Bush probably had no idea that his winning a Heismann Trophy and being the 2nd pick in the 2006 NFL Draft would mean little next to being known as KK’s boyfriend. Funny how life can throw you a curve ball or two…
I really liked Bush coming out of USC (like many others) and still want him to be that player. However, he’ll never be that guy which was an unstoppable force. Bush can be more of a playmaker than he’s shown in my opinion and started to exhibit in the ’08 season before breaking down again.
I won’t blast him for his Celebrity Lifestyle away from football. Many think that has been the major contributer to his less than productive NFL career (thus far)… I totally disagree. Bush is a tweener in the NFL meaning he’s not your prototype to be a running back, receiver, or kick returner… but he’s a fantastic athlete that was a terror in college which just hasn’t translated to the NFL. He is what Raghib “The Rocket” Ismail was in ’91 when he came out of Notre Dame. Rocket avoided much of what Bush is experiencing as he opted to sign with the Toronto Argonauts in the Canadian Football League for what was a record contract at that time.
This Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian thing is really hot news we’ve discovered here at Urban Sports Talk & Entertainment. We started talking about Bush before he hooked up with one of the hottest celebrities on the planet. Now, if we don’t mention KK when we drop something on RB there’s just no sizzle.
Clearly, in ’07 Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson had everyone buzzing about the hookup. RB and KK have much more juice and it appears as though they really are serious about making this thing work. RB took his peeps to KK’s peeps house… Damn!
RB was having his best year on the field before the injuries sat him down. We hope he gets healthy and lives up to his potential on the field because he has shown some serious talent and flashes of brillance. We just want it to be consistent and prolonged.
See you in ’09 RB (and KK).
Venus Williams & Hank Kuehne… raised in Compton, CA she is now one of the most famous athletes in the world… where is her King?
Update 5.19.09 – I must say that the responses to this post have been powerful… thank you all for your opinion and your passion. I came across a couple interesting posts regarding Russell Simmons (Hip Hop Mogul) and his friend Julie Henderson (Model). Give it a read and share you thoughts… here is the post about Uncle Russ & Julie. Then there is something written by Uncle Russ’ ex-Katie Ross.
On November 4, 2008, America elected a Black Man as the President-Elect of the United States of America. This historic event has caused many Americans (especially w/in the Black Community) to examine many issues surrounding “race” that have been either taboo or only talked about honestly when one is in the midst of their own ethnic group. We felt that we should be no different at Urban Sports Talk & Entertainment… so we are asking you to give your thoughts about “race” as it relates to Black Athletes involved in interracial relationships.
I decided to pen this post mainly because of a conversation I had with my cousin recently. Given my background as a former football player, he wanted my perspective on Black (Male) Athletes dating White Women. He just cannot understand how these athletes are raised in Black neighborhoods, attend Black (k – 12) Schools, worship in Black Churches then go off and leave Black Women behind. His challenge to me was to defend that reality for those athletes.
I didn’t care to provide an excuse because I don’t believe a person’s decision to date someone of another ethnicity is shameful. What I did talk about is how a Black Athlete’s circumstances can lead him (them) to make certain choices. Many of which were never available prior to him/her being highlighted for athletic prowess.
For instance, the vast majority of Black Athletes are removed from Black areas when they are given scholarships to attend White Colleges. This is the initial step towards assimilating into the Majority Society. For many Black Athletes, this will be their first time attending a class as the minority student. He/she will be living around tens of thousands of non-Blacks for the coming years as they are being trained to play sports at a high level. His/her world view is being shaped during this time as he/she is experiencing independence from parents, family and their community. It is during this time when they are frequently socializing with many diverse groups of people which they will ultimately be influenced by for the years to come.
My cousin wasn’t impressed and didn’t want to hear that lame excuse as he called it. What are your thoughts? Are we passed this issue or should Black Athletes be challenged for their decisions to date outside of their race?
Reggie Bush had his most spectacular game of his career last night on MNF. He tied a record by returning two punt returns for touchdowns (71, 64 yds.) and accounted for 269 total yards. Before the season started, I stated that Bush needed to be consistent every week by doing things that led directly to wins. He has done that through 5 weeks of the season and all that decoy stuff is behind him. Don’t get me wrong, he isn’t going to carry the mail (high rushing attempts) and will never be the Saints best running back. Bush will be a threat in an offensive game plan like the New Orleans Saints presently deploy. What remains to be determined is if Head Coach Sean Payton has a future there if this team fails to make the playoffs.
In other news… how the heck can Bush’s girlfriend – Kim Kardashian – be such a lousy dancer? If she could dance a good as she looks she would have been the Vegas pick to win the latest installment of Dancing With The Stars. She is terrible!!!! But, who looks at her and thinks about that anyway… Bush must be keeping mama happy.
