The question comes up from time to time, regarding the NBA lockout: for whom should we feel the worst? There are plenty of people suffering as a result of this lockout…including some you wouldn’t necessarily expect.
Earlier today, the NBA players association announced it had rejected the owners’ latest offer to settle the league’s labor impasse and end the lockout, and would file for decertification. And you know what that means: time for NBA commissioner David Stern to hit SportsCenter and enter the all-spin zone.
The NBA lockout is still ongoing, and that makes a lot of people upset. One of those people: the Lakers’ Metta World Peace (formerly known, of course, as Ron Artest). Today, he let us all know just how much he wants to get back to work.
College basketball purists will likely complain when Van Gundy’s comments come off as uninformed or too quirky. Instead of bemoaning the World Wide Leader’s decision, though, we’ll take this opportunity to showcase some of his greatest hits and hope the foray into collegiate hoops gives us a few more memorable moments.
Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, who already had a bit of a PR flap regarding this lockout, called on Magic Johnson to provide “a little magic” for his Quicken Loans customers.
Today, NBA commissioner David Stern announced a new (though expected) cancellation of league action, this time through the end of November. For NBA fans, that sucks. Abd for the most obsessive among us, it really sucks.
President Barack Obama went on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night in order to
have an in-depth policy discussion look charming in front of a large audience as the 2012 election draws nearer. One subject that came up during the Obama-Leno chat: the ongoing NBA lockout. Yes, the president is still sad about it.
The NBA lockout may be making life difficult for everyone else, but Chicago Bulls mascot Benny the Bull is making sure to have fun even if all players and owners do is bicker and complain about who should get more money.
Hell of a day for David Stern analogies. You heard about Bryant Gumbel’s scathing criticism on last night’s Real Sports, and now from free-agent-to-be Shannon Brown comes a comparison from an entirely different angle – and somewhat less cutting, though still unflattering for the commish. Brown, like many others, has had just about enough of Stern’s PR spin he’s using to try to dominate lockout conversation and make the other side out to be the bad guys. And he had an interesting way of describing it.
