|Want to know who to blame for the Dwight Howard fiasco? Look no further...|
Without a doubt, there isn’t a more complicated relationship in my life right now than the one I have with the NBA. It’s like dating a supermodel, except she has one of those horrendous arm-sleeve tattoos that makes you want to hurl every time you start to get intimate.
Like many, I’ve spent the last few days trying to figure out exactly what happened, and who to be angry with. The easy answer, of course, is to blame the league itself. I’ve been very open about my dissatisfaction with the new CBA and with the direction it has led the league, so it’s natural to feel some bitterness with the way things turned out. Quite honestly, the league deserves much of that sentiment. This now marks the fourth consecutive summer that a franchise has been held hostage by its star player, two of which occurred under the new CBA…you know, the one that was supposed to stop this kind of stuff. How did those situations turn out? In all four, the player went from small market to big market (Miami, New York, LA, LA), and three of those small market franchises were left in shambles.
