Occupy the NBA?

Maybe the NBA owners and players haven't noticed: No Occupy NBA crowds are forming to demand a settlement to the owners' lockout. A cliche applies: Crowds are staying away in droves.

Following the players rejection of the owners' "final offer" today, we hear reports that the entire season might be lost.

Who cares?

If either the owners or players think that will fire up Americans to demand capitulation from one side or the other, they've got a second think coming. No one I know is lamenting the loss. Aside from FanAddicts, no one will miss the NBA with its increasingly silly and brutal version of basketball. Let's hear it for college basketball where the game is played the way it was meant.
