I found it very disturbing (Latrel Spreewell disturbing) that Billy Hunter compared the NBA union to most other unions. We're all the same, he says, except "we may make a 'little' more than the others". What world is he coming from? I remember Sprewell saying something stupid years ago, when he was making nearly 17,000,000 dollars that season, that "his family had to eat". Welcome to the real world where people make 10-20 dollars an hour, and gas cost over 3.50 a gallon. Hunter's comparison was just as ridiculous. What business do you know of, where the employees make 'more' than the employer, and the company can stay in business. They need to get this thing under control "now". It costs way too much to even go to a Pacers" game, and i could only imagine tickets for the Knicks, or Miami, or L.A. Sheesh. where does it end. And, i hear talk that some of the players (the millionaires) are already worried about where their next meal is coming from. If they can't take care of their finances making the type of salaries they do, well, i don't feel sorry for any of them. Make the players sweat it out for a couple months, then lets "re-negoiate". Maybe for once, these spoiled players will appreciate making millions for playing a game, and not having to live in the real world. Saying all this, let's not forget the Owners. They too are spoiled. I don't want to see the season done away with because of two spoiled, multi-million dollar groups of selfish people who can't decide how to split the wealth they are raking in from all the hard working people who try to support their local teams, but this has got to stop. If it means doing away with a complete season, to bring things under control, then so be it.
NOTHING BUT BIG, MULTI-MILLION AIR BABIES. ALL OF THEM.
