Bois: Analyzing NBA Slogans, Including Blazers' "Rise With Us"

Jon Bois at SBNation.com has a hilarious and deep analysis of the slogans NBA teams use to set the tone for their seasons. The Portland Trail Blazers' "Rise With Us" makes an appearance, filed under "Marxist Plot!!!!!" ---------------------------------- NBA teams are fond of this "we're all a team" thing. I meaaaaan ... I get how you could interpret the producer/consumer dynamic as a form of teamwork, but teammates don't hijack each other's tax money or charge each other 11 dollars for a beer. If this is the way you're gonna roll, I'm not really comfortable with you calling me your teammate. I'm just gonna buy your tickets with the same emotional gravitas I feel when I buy Pop-Tarts at the grocery store. Cool? Cool. Good talk, glad we had this talk. ---------------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
