I enjoyed your article and the blast from the past. Apparently anyone from the
management side is fined $100,000 for making comments about the lock-out. If
that applied to Malone we could pay off the national debt.
Say whatever you want. This is a stars league and they make the NBA. The owners
can recruit whoever they want, but few people will watch. If you don't like the
NBA or the players attitude, don't watch the product.
Going back in the past again are we? I hate to say this but that team from Utah
still aint won anything yet!
Stockton is the man. He is the epitome of what a professional basketball player
should be. I miss that guy.
One way for the fans to have a voice in this lockoput would be for the players
and owners to finance free sellouts for ech game missed.Since the
fans are missing out and do not have a voice they should make the players play
for free and the owners supply the stadiums for all the missed games.Here is betting the solution would come much faster and without all the
policitical posturing we see going on now.
Time for the players to deal with reality.The owners created the
league. The players can and will be replaced over time and let it be known they
are not in it for the players coming behind them, they are in it for
themselves.Too bad they cannot be satisfied with an average of 5
million per season. That is many times more money than the average fan will
earn in a lifetime, yet players are getting that each season. If they are
mindful of how they spend that it would be possible to be done financially even
after a sinigle season or perhaps two.Some players earn less and
some much more.They are being asked to give up a few percent of
their salaries. They are acting like babies (thanks Derrick Rose for pointing
out it is not your fault but all the owners fault).Like the article
mentioned, Karl Malone acted like one of the biggest babies and there seem to be
several to replace him this time around.The players and owners will
miss the money but the fans who are left out of this strike are getting ripped
