Ball Don't Lie:
Seriously, NBA owners and players: If you're not going to take such sound advice from the man who defeated Bob Backlund (and was later re-branded as part of a Saddam Hussein-sympathizing faction at the height of military operations in Iraq, which was pretty weird for a young Dan who basically just wanted to like Sgt. Slaughter, but whatever), then I think it is fair to say that you are beyond help.

But like I said, the Sheik makes a lot of sense here regarding greed, the fans, and especially...
Sure, it’s not as explicit nor as entertaining as the Iron Sheik’s previous forays into online criticism, but despite its lack of vileness and excessive profanity, it’s hard to argue with the veracity of thoughts contained in the above tweet. Well put, Iron Sheik. Heck, that’s probably better advice than Billy Hunter or David Stern [...]

Well, if NBA players and owners are not going to listen to David Beckham and end this lockout, we’re going to have to bring in the big guns: The Iron Sheik. Yes the famous, racially-stereotyped wrestler pitted as a counterbalance to Hulk Hogan’s All-American good guy persona of the 1980s has weighed in on the…
