The NBA has already cancelled the first two weeks of their season, and today they are expected the cancel another two. Why? So these multi-millionaires can hold out for more money - to make a bigger profit.
Did you know that Brian Moynihan, the CEO of Bank of America, makes about $1.9 million dollars a year in salary? Sure, he has options for more - those push him up to almost $4 million. He also spent seven years in college (unlike Bryant, who has no student loan debt). Moynihan is virtually facing a lynch mob for supporting his company's $60/year charge for a debit car. Meanwhile, the Lakers franchise has no problem charging you $37/ticket, not to mention the cost of food inside the arena. And what about t-shirts, programs, basketballs? Greed, greed, GREED!
Here's my challenge - if this occupy movement is really about ending corporate greed, if it's really about corruption, then I expect to see people camping out at The Palace, Madison Square Garden, and every other establishment that encourages, even supports, this kind of corporate greed. We need to demand that the government intervene - let Pelosi and Reid determine how much money NBA players should make. Let them set the schedule, regulate salaries, and, most importantly, stop charging us ridiculous fees for our right to watch a basketball game!!
There you go - OCCUPY THE NBA!
the same way you treated Netflix, and wait to see what happens.
