Now this should be on CNN’s breaking news ticker. A NBA player is blaming the owners for the lockout? Really? One of the emplyoees is putting the blame on the company?
This is more shocking than the season finale of Breaking Bad.
Derrick Rose has come out and said:
“It’s very sad, but everybody knows it’s not our fault,” the Bulls point guard and reigning NBA most valuable player said Saturday in Chicago. “If it was up to us we’d be out there playing. I think that is wrong and I know they could easily take care of it.”
No offense Derrick but it is kind of a two-way gold-plated street. So you are saying you will go out and play for less money for the better of the sport?
I actually am not on either side of the fence during this lockout. The owners are greedy and trying to fix the mess they made over the last several years, while the players are over paid but of course don’t want to give up any of the pie.
Both sides are wrong if you want to be simple. The fans and those who are employed by the NBA are the ones getting screwed over.
I get that microphones are stuck in front of player’s faces and they will no doubt speak, but it is hard to listen to players say, they just want to play.
It is a business, fans are smart and understand the rules. There will be no sympathy for either side.
The world is in an economic hole which is getting worse every day. So why should we care if 25 year old basketball players make millions. Or that the rich owners get richer?
Maybe the NBA owners and player should turn on the TV and see what is going on with Occupy Wall Street.
Maybe Derrick Rose should just work on his jump shot and keep his mouth shut.
