The NBA is worthless and so are the players. I can't think of an activity that is more unnecessary than professional basketball.
If any of these spoiled players were four inches shorter, they'd be flipping burgers or dealing drugs.
I say let the NBA take off, oh, I don't know, about 15 years. Weed out the greediest of the players and let them make a living by saying, "should I leave room for cream?"

Don't blame them for your feelings, the fans support them.

The world was a better place during the 1998-99 NBA lockout. And we all survived.
I hope the owners teach these ungrateful Prima donnas a lesson and cancel the next 15 seasons. Only good can come of that. It will show young urban men that they definietly cannot count on that one in one million chance of making the NBA. Maybe then they'll concentrate more on school and look up to real men who stay with their wives and children instead of disrespecting them by having all night orgies and drug binges.
Young urban men need to stay in school instead of the alternative, crime and drugs, which is what happens whey you're broke and uneducated.
The NBA isn't useless--no sir, it helps keep the jails filled.

The owners and players should wait until next June to hammer out a deal.
I got no time for the game. Too many hotties waiting to meet me for some fun.
