Welcome, NBA writers

Posted on: June 30, 2011 3:35 pm
I want to officially extend a warm hand to my fellow sportswriting NBA brothers. Your lockout is now on. My lockout has lasted over 100 days. As a lockout veteran, I'd like to make a few suggestions:

1. Purchase a bull---- translator. I believe they sell them at Home Depot.

2. Always remember: the owners are doing this for the fans.

3. Always remember: the players are doing this for the fans.

4. Charge your BlackBerry.

5. Learn the difference between CBA and CYA.

6. Tell your siginifcant other(s) you love them. Because you may not see them for awhile.

7. You will be doing some staking out so stock up on supplies: toilet paper, MREs, Evian, extra pens and maybe an iPad.

8. Get extra batteries for your bull---- translator.

9. Study up on all of your local federal mediators.

10. Find a therapist. You will quickly approach the brink of insanity.

So, again, welcome to Lockout Hell. Hope you brought some fire proof underwear.

Welcome, NBA writers

Let them go to Europe and let them stay there, basketball is probably the least physical (baseball would be except for the 162 game schedule outdoors in the heat of the summer, play a 3 hour plus game in St. Louis in July or August) I think the heat index is 105 today and tomorrow, and the least team dependant.  Tired of spoiled rich morons griping about money.  If some of these guys didn't have talent for sports they would be world class bums.  Next thing you know the NBA will be compared to slavery,  concentration camps or something else just as stupid.  If basketball goes away, I am just not sure I care anymore.

32Zone you must get dumber by the day.The same thing was said in the 97 lockout and it never happened this time the owners are not going to buy into it.But lets say the lockout takes the season away and they have no choice,good!!!!

The players are a bunch of overpaid lazy  dicks so please go for a few years and then they will see how good they have it.

NBA superstars will be heading to Europe for more millions now that they've been locked out.  The nba better hope they come back whenever the season starts.

Welcome, NBA writers

.....Here is one you forgot to mention.....

...Make sure you call your agent to try to find work overseas .....Something NFL players do not have ....Options!

Would love to see some of the elite players from the NBA play in europe or beyond......

Gasol in Spain.....Kobe in Italy, and Lebron?  Anyhere where they will pay him......

China????  Well if they had a popular league then they could probably pay the king whatever he wants......they have lots of money now in China......Thank the GOP for that one.....

The NBA is lucky they don't have a real league there or the NBA will be doomed if the elite talent here gets more money over there.....

That would make the NBA the new CBA......

The owners and Stern are the ones who screwed this league up.......Nobody put a gun to your heads when you signed the last CBA you idiots......

Horrible leadership from the NBA front office and incompetent, irresponsible owners need to be the ones responsible for this mess....but the media is full of soft people who will not write what is right due to the fact that the people who are paying them will fire them.......So they will back the owners of any sport to no end....

Welcome, NBA writers

Like any real sports journalist would take advice from Mike Freemen if they even know who he is. Talk about arrogant, does Freeman really believe that any self-respecting sports journalist would even waste their time reading his blogs?

Welcome, NBA writers

If you defend Freeman in any of forms of delivering nonsense you are guilty of stupid.

He is now trying to blame his ignorant, sometimes racist, and always misguided support for the players in their failed money grab on being misled.

You can't be misled when not a single person will talk to you, and seen in no one allows him to ever use their name.

The man is a fraud. He makes up stories based on his own feelings of insecurity and pretends these were shared with him by insiders.
If I am wrong... so a single source that claims him in any of these labor negotiations.

Freeman is a blogger for sure, and journalist never.
