The NBA lockout is still going strong despite the talks going long into the night last night and starting up again today. You’d think by now these people would realize with this state of the United States economy this really isn’t the time for millionaires versus billionaires. They are taking away entertainment from average Americans at a time people need a distraction from everyday life and I honestly hope this greed blows up in their faces.
I for one will not be purchasing any NBA products this year and possibly even next year just because I don’t want to support these guys. Just check out their twitter accounts and you’ll see just what kind of guys these people are. They’re not playing basketball so they have a lot of time for things like twitter and they use it to show off their wealth and that sickens me.
For those who know me I’ve been a fan of the Phoenix Suns for most of my life but getting a glimpse into how these players really act is really making me rethink how I look at the team.
The biggest difference between the NBA lockout and NFL lockout as far as my views towards the players is during the NFL lockout at least players were doing something constructive with their time like performing charity work in the same cannot be said about their NBA counterparts.
I’m serious when I say if the two sides will stop fighting soon and get back to playing this will be one fan who they will lose. The game is starting to be filled with wannabe thugs who care more about making an extra dollar than the fans who helped them become millionaires in the first place.
