Bryant Gumbel discussed the ongoing NBA lockout drama on his HBO show Tuesday evening. And while I believe he has a point about NBA Commissioner David Stern’s egotistical ways and demeaning antics with the players. However, dragging out the slavery adage when discussing guys that are multi millionaires never plays out well.
Dictator, US Banks CEO, any of those terms could be compared to the NBA lockout situation and probably get the same point across. So while I applaud Gumbel’s efforts to show that the players aren’t the actual enemy. Sometimes you must use creative messaging to get your message to resonate and not just play out for shock value.
15 hours of mediation on Tuesday and a return to the meeting room this A.M., gives me hope.
