Slam dunking slavery

When will we reach peak woke on grievance where it actually doesn’t exist? The NBA has decided that the use of the word “owner” is racially insensitive given most of the basketball players are African-American. The idea is that it has links to “slave owner.” Therefore the use of “governor” is deemed more appropriate terminology for the individuals that legally “own” the team.

Hang on a minute, doesn’t Michael Jordan, legendary black basketball player of Chicago Bulls fame, own, sorry, govern the Charlotte Hornets? Will he get an exemption? Perhaps the NBA should have a quiet word about using blonde white supremacist females to promote his basketball wear as being unfair to models from minority backgrounds? Or could it be he doesn’t give a damn, like many of the basketball players held back by the chains of multi-year multi-million dollar contracts?

Steven Curry must be feeling oppressed by his $201m 5yr deal. Perhaps governors can get around the salary cap by including slavery reparations as a component of pay. It would be unconscionable for NBA Governor Adam Silver to deny such action.

This political correctness is just plain stupid. Silver should be sacked. If there were own-goals in basketball, he’s scored it. Let’s see if NBA attendance falls on the back of this crap.
