Comment of the morning:
“What do you call canceling the first two weeks of the NBA season? A good start.” - YodarCritch
Players and management have yet to reach a deal on a new labor agreement. But, CNN.com readers said they’re tired of complaints from people who make millions of dollars. They also said they have plenty of other sports options to fill their time. Some said they wouldn’t mind if the NBA disappeared entirely.
Spiff59 said, “Cancel the whole season as far as I'm concerned. Crying that an average salary of 5 million a year is not enough is disgusting. What? Making a hundred times more than an average American isn't enough?”
stevenabb500 responded, “You try supporting two kids on less than seven million a year! I just can't imagine a family living on ONLY five million a year or something ... eggs and gas are expensive.”
anon123421 responded, “The $5 million or so average salary is a mean average. The median is far less. Just because a few stars are making $30 million does not mean others are making less than 80k.”
But 1121234 responded, “@anon123421. That's not accurate, the bare minimum, the BARE minimum that an NBA player will make is $300K a year. All NBA players make at least that. It's part of their bargaining agreement.”
JohnSteel said, “The NBA season is canceled? Yawn ... I've got baseball playoffs, football and hockey to watch. Come February it will be time to start prepping for March Madness where far better basketball is played than anything the NBA offers.”
NoFreemasons said, “Does it really matter if we ever see another NBA game?”
stevenabb500 said, “Price of an NBA ticket: $100 to $500. Price of playing a game of basketball with my son and some of his friend with the driveway hoop: truly priceless. Count me out guys... my son needs me more.”
Kevin54321 said, “Our values as a human culture are notoriously skewed: each of the recipients of the Nobel prizes this past week get only $1.5 million per prize and have to split it if there is more than one recipient for the prize. Meanwhile, grown men who put a basketball through a hoop for a living are whining about not getting $7 million a year for doing something that has no real impact on human society at large....Where have our values gone?”
WolfsComing responded, “But Nobel prize winners can't dunk and nobody wants to pay for a seat to watch them factor out equations.”
FireStarter7 said, “Nobody watches the NBA regular season anyway. Most don't start watching until Round 2 of the Playoffs. Shorten the season. There are too many regular season games.”
ssn32780 said, “I'd rather watch the WNBA.”
