Well, to no fan fare and no solution a great big news has come out of the lockout….Christmas games are at risk of being cancelled. What?!?!?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I mean besides spending time with loved ones, receiving and giving gifts, eating a ton of Christmas delight, throwing snowballs (only if there is snow or rocks if you’re really into throwing something) I look forward to watching my rounds of bball with the fam. I love to argue, yell and scream at the tv against my family, with my family and with myself. Now you’re taking it away! David Stern needs a timeout. Yes, during Christmas time, basketball season has barely started. Realistically, the leagues been only playing for a month and its not the best basketball. But rivalries are still roaring, bragging rights are still there and of course the beautiful game of basketball is played. This is like Thanksgiving without any football…I mean can you even imagine it?!!?!?
Courtesy of Yahoo and AP, I’ve included a photo below. No one in this picture looks even remotely happy, like their whole life has turned upside down (which technically it has!) and they look angry at everyone and their moms.
Tell me, would you be happy, if your paycheck didn’t come every two weeks or whatever it is? They did a stat and it seems that big time ballers like Kobe, Dirk, LBJ, D-Wade are already losing about $1-2 million every two weeks. Can you imagine what you would do without your $1200 paycheck every two weeks. Now granted, they’ve got so much money up the wazoo that really that isn’t a big deal, but it seems a likely trend that more and more players are filing for bankruptcy and well without a job and paycheck it hurts!
As a fan, whose side are you on?
