Remember last week when NBA owners pressured commissioner David Stern into blocking a deal that would have sent Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers because moves like that were why those very same owners had locked out the players in the first place?
Well, actually if I remember correctly the reason for the NBA lockout was the fact that owners claimed they were paying far too much for players and needed more room to maneuver financially. As a group, owners had given out so many bad contracts that they couldn’t get out from under them. The financial sustainability of the league was the actual reason for the lockout. And today we got proof that those owners have learned absolutely nothing.
Kwame Brown, who is statistically (and, not just statistically) one of the worst players in the NBA was given a one-year, $7 million contract by the Golden State Warriors.
Let that one sink in for a bit.
Kwame freaking Brown just got $7 million? To play basketball? What, is he getting $10 for...
