Money makes the world go round. We want it, we need it, we love it, and most will do almost anything for it. As far a the revenue goes in the NBA, hey, it is what it is. Personally I won't pay a hundred plus dollars for a jersey (except maybe Alonzo Mourning).
But unfortunately it is a business. All (players, owners, coaches, etc.) are in it for the bucks. Not to take anything away from the few who really love the game and want to play. But today it's a business.

LaBron James was already making almost a hundred thousand dollars before he had even touched a NBA basketball or put a toe the court. I'm no hater though. Mo power to him.

I am a lover of the sport. I appreciate the beauty and grace. The effortless dream shake, hook shot and finger roll. With that being said, an athlete is a piece of property. They are bought and paid for. They are paid well to entertain us.

But with that comes a certain level of self control and responsibility. I too had a temper once upon a midnight dreary. But we grow, mature and govern ourselves accordingly. As responsible adults. Why? Because we know that there are consequences to our actions.

Sorry, Ron Artest was way wrong. Yes, I understand that he was dissed. And by a white man to boot. And if the perpetrator would have been standing next to Artest when he throw the beer, UMMM, I would have understood Artest's reaction. But this guy was way up in the stands. By the time Artest reached the second row shouldn't reason have come back to him?

Yes, I understand we live in a violent society. But only we, the individual can dictate our actions. We are not animals. We control how we act and react. Artest simply don't care.

I've been reading your blog. I really enjoy your incorporation of history. Paraphrasing Santayana, I believe, if we forget our history, we're condemned to repeat it. When I read Pylade's quote, immediately the thought came "the more things change the more they stay the same." :-)

As for blacks having liquids thrown into their faces and not liking it, I must add, no one likes liquid tossed his or her face. Even animals don't like it. Furthermore, Rush Limbaugh's persistant whittling of everything down to race shows his ignorance. Hockey's a game with very few African Americans and little if any hiphop influence. It's not exactly known for peace loving sensibility.

I have not read a more straightforward commentary on this show of incivility. I was truly dismayed as I watched this mess unfold during the game. Unlike many others, I had the shock of actually watching this brawl happen...and then all viewers were subjected to the constant replays of it. I couldn't believe my eyes. I am sad that this whole display of incivility has been allowed to take center stage as opposed to courageous actions that will restore dignity to competition among talented athletes. May I suggest that your commentary be forwarded, in its complete form, to newspapers like NYT,WSJ, and even the MacPaper?
