David Stern Hang NBA Players Out To Dry

Now we our in the second lockout and it should not come as any surprise that David Stern has let the NBA players hang out to dry. he knows that public opinion will come down hard on players because that is where fans will vent their frustration. It's not always fair, but that's the truth and Stern knows it.

Fans want to watch NBA basketball and visit arena's and Stern knows that getting the NBA players to break is his only real chance. Hanging them out to dry is not uncommon in labor disputes, especially when you are talking about millionaire ballplayers. Will it work? I do not know only time will tell, but right now Stern does not care as he will do whatever it takes to get the game back on the court. This includes choosing sides it seems in the latest NBA lockout.

The NBA Better Settle This Lockout Soon Or I Will Go Crazy

The NBA and their lockout are really getting on my last nerve and they are pissing me off. As a blogger, I always look forward to the off-season, trades, and player movement. What have I gotten this off-season is jerked around and I am not happy about it. The NBA season must commence on time or as a blogger, I will miss out on so much.

I will not be able see Lebron James and Dwayne Wade in press conferences complaining how everyone hates them. How the world is a better place every time the Heat loses. Okay Wade and James I will admit it I really am not fond of either one of you. With a lockout though how can I write about all your screw-ups. Then we have Shaq who has retired and has teamed-up with Charles Barkley to do color commentary on games. Now that is something that is must-see television.

Another thing I will miss is all the NBA players and meltdowns they have during the season. Ron Artest has changed his name to whatever, and how about all those fantastic finishes I will miss because of the NBA lockout. Okay David Stern I am putting this at your lap. I expect you to do something about it. I know you got the refs signed to a deal, but without players, refs are no good to you.

Because I like you David Stern I will give you the benefit of the doubt, but right now, the NBA is pissing me off. Are you going to force me to watch NHL hockey this season and write about it as well. It seems that way Mr. Stern. Get a deal done, as I am tired of being pissed off at the NBA.

Michael Jordan Gets 100,000 Fine For Sharing His Opinion

Michael Jordan has learned as a owner you have to follow certain rules even if your name is Michael Jordan. The NBA fined Michael Jordan $100,000 for public comments he made last month about the lockout and one of the league's players, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. I really think this is stupid, but it's the NBA and rules are rules I guess.

In an Aug. 19 interview with The Herald Sun, a newspaper in Australia, the Charlotte Bobcats owner spoke extensively about the need for revenue sharing and mentioned Milwaukee Bucks' Australian center Andrew Bogut. I think Jordan has learned his lesson and while their is a lockout look for him to keep quiet on any NBA subject. He can afford the 100,000, but I am sure he is not happy about it.
