NBA Lockout: 3 Reasons Why All the Power Is Ultimately in the Owners Hands

Turn the television to ESPN and one of two things will occur.

1) A pundit will belittle the owners as if they have no power.

2) A player on the phone will spew bile-laden invective.

As you're watching this, remember that the media is a circus that loves to get you, I and every other thing on-fire over the future of the NBA.

Make no mistakes; there is no co-partnership.

The NBA is far from a hocus pocus candy land, where the players, owners and water boys drink peace tea and eat egalitarian cupcakes.

Money is rule numero uno.

How to make more money is rule numero dos.

Let this be a crash course into the nature of American capitalism and please, oh please remember, you nor I can say anything that has not been thought before.  

So I extend this gracious reminder to you. When it is all said and done, go back to work, thank God for the simplistic nature of your job and kiss your boss (no, please don't do that).
