    Imaging calling someone soft because you're offended that they are offended by this....

    You make fun of this generation for being overly sensitive.Yet you cry about this little change which means YOU are overly sensitive.

    People blame the players but let's see who really cares about owner/governor that owns a majority stake in an NBA team.
    As for the feedback from the players, Silver says he's heard from both sides --

    "Players have gone both ways. I think a few players have actually spoken out and said the greatest thing that ever happened was when Michael Jordan was able to call himself an owner."

    Governor doesn't make sense. Should have used investor.

    I agree. The stereotype that holds true is the NBA is largely Jewish owners. But then that's every money making industry (Music industry epecially)

    I think if there were more progression in minority owners that aren't Jewish, the owner name wouldn't bother some of them as much.

    It's getting to the point where these NBA players are making/worth more than some of the minority owners.

    Michael Jordan worked hard to become one of the first Black owners in Sports all to have that taken away from him in an instant. Now that's racist!

    Shouldn't the players, especially black players, feel offended by the reasoning? That the NBA think so low of their perceptive ability that they would get offended by the term "team owner"?

    The league has become so soft it's insane. If someone owns a team they can be called whatever the **** they want to be called. If I owned a business I can call my position King if I wanted to.

    this all started around the beginning of the obama era

    it's been cascading ever since then

    also l3bron is 100% leftist and I would venture 98% of his friends, relatives.. hell anyone close to him remotely is also leftist. Just connect the dots.
