NBA Lockout

Here we go again.  Multimillionaire vs Multimillionaires, (or billionaires), who knows, who cares.  The NBA claims the league lost $300 million this past season.  The league will tell you it is the players fault.  The players will say it’s the owners fault.  I’ll take the blame.  I haven’t been to a professional game in years, therefore it must be my fault because I didn’t pay to watch a bunch of overpaid people play a game I would play  for free.  No! I don’t take advantage of watching them on TV.

Will they never learn?  We had the NBA lockout in what (1998), then to get people back they created “SUPER STARS’, By allowing certain players to not follow the rules, and blasting their names on anything, and everything.  These were decent players before, (Let me explain. I look at the overall skills of a player to rate them.  If a player scores 30 points a game but puts up 60 shots; does this mean he is a great player.  If a player is allowed to go from one end of the floor to the other with only 3 dribbles, is he a good ball handler.  The answer in my opinion is NO!)  The fact that professional basketball is not real BASKETBALL, but comparative to professional wrestling.  They give what the so-called fans want.  That’s OK it is merely a business, BIG BUSINESS, but business.

In the NBA’s greed, they started raising ticket, and licensing fees.  Then the players said Hey I want some of that.  And I have no quarrel here.  What we have here is: The NBA owns the company.  The players contract with different teams for the most money they can get.  It is just business.  Who cares?  Will we not be able to feed our kids if the two can’t reach agreement.  Probably we would have more money in our pockets.

I suggest if you want to see exciting BASKETBALL take in a grade school, (or as some of the upper class prefer elementary school), games, Jr high or middle school, or high school.  Or a nearby division 2 or 3 College game.  It won’t cost you nearly as much, and you will most likely see a more competitive game than the NBA will offer.  And I’m sure your school and community could use the money.

That Is How I See It.
