Canceling the NBA

The inmates genuinely believe they are running the asylum:

The entire NBA season is currently at risk of being cancelled, with the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers both reportedly voting to boycott the remainder of the 2019- 2020 season as a way to protest police brutality and racial injustice.

The chaos began Wednesday when the Milwaukee Bucks announced that they would not take to the floor for their afternoon game against Orlando Magic.

The Bucks’ decision forced the NBA to also postpone two other games scheduled for Wednesday evening.

The move threw the season’s playoffs into disarray, and an 8pm players meeting was called to discuss how to move forward.

According to The Athletic reporter Shams Charania, the closed-door talks were extremely tense, with teams unable to find consensus on how to continue with the rest of the season. They lasted for three hours.

The Lakers and Clippers allegedly voted to boycott all remaining games, while most other teams voted to continue.

According to Charania, NBA star Udonis Haslem ‘spoke to the room and essentially asked how the season would continue without the Lakers and Clippers. LeBron James then walked out. The rest of Lakers and Clippers exited behind him.’

One veteran sportscaster told ESPN that the entire basketball season is now ‘in jeopardy’.

This is hilarious. What a brave and stunning move by LeBron James! It certainly couldn’t happen to a nicer league.

If we’re really fortunate, this may inspire the NFL players to shut down their workplace as well, given that the NFL Commissioner Goodell has been kowtowing to the league’s Negros almost as obsequiously as the NBA’s Silver.
