In growing more and more dissillusioned with the NBA around the lockout I wanted to put this question out there to see what people think. I don't know the issues of the lockout nor do I really care. I work in social work and have watched people around me loose their jobs, watched needed services get cut, and their is no relief in sight. The unemployment is demoralizing across the country. Yet NBA players, who daily display vulgar forms of wealth, are striking? I know the prevailing attitude is to be supportive of obscene wealth under some kind of banner of freedom or the divine order of capitalism, regardless of the cost to a disappearing middle class, does exists. But I don't get it.
Just tired of it all and feel we need new leadership all the way around in the NBA. Bill Hunter seems to fight for things I don't agree with, including current lockout. Derek Fisher has been one of the bigger floppers and manipulators of officials in the NBA. Granted it's a limited view, but it's what I got, and I wouldn't be surprised if he plays a similar role in negotiations. David Stern has reached the point that he is viewed as the one time hero whom has turned tyrant. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, but I this point I think the perception has become enough and it's probably time to step aside.
Ii apolagise for this being more about politics than basketball.
