DAVID STERN’S MESSAGE TO NBA PLAYERS “I’M RICH B*&CH! NOW LET THEM EAT CAKE”

14 Nov

IF YOU ARE A NBA PLAYER IT SUCKS TO BE YOU RIGHT NOW…….

With basically no basketball season in sight and tons of child support and borrowed jewelry bills piling up the life of a NBA player has many players scratching their heads in confusion asking the dear old question ‘Where Da Cash At? Where Da Stash At?

Negotiations continued today and apparently Derek Fisher (Union President) didn’t get David Stern’s memo “I’m Rich Bitch”….”Now Let Them Eat Cake”

The NBA and the players’ union were unable to reach agreement on a collective bargaining agreement today and the union dissolved, meaning an anti-trust lawsuit is the next step.

“We’re prepared to file this antitrust action against the NBA,” Billy Hunter, now the executive director of the NBA players trade association, said of the labor dispute that began with a lockout of players July 1. “That’s the best situation where players can get their due process.”

Players will not accept an offer that they regarded as an ultimatum from Commissioner David Stern, with Hunter calling it “extremely unfair.”

Hunter made his comments at a press conference in New York that was attended by union president Derek Fisher as well as a group of players that included Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, Rajon Rondo and Elton Brand. Fisher said the vote, by a show of hands of about 50 players present, was unanimous.

Stern had urged players to accept the current proposal that calls for a 50-50 division of basketball-related income and proposed a 72-game season beginning Dec. 15.

“We were very close,” Stern said, “and they decided to blow it up.”

As for whether more games and perhaps the season will soon be canceled, Stern said: “The calendar takes care of it by itself. We’re not going to start idle threats.”

Players, meanwhile, now begin losing paychecks. “The chances of the season slipping away from us,” Stern said, “and the players losing all that they’ve worked very hard to achieve…I think it’s a tragedy.”(source)

In your honest opinion have they turned this whole NBA Lockout event into a 3 ring circus? Are you skeptic that they will even have a season?
