Telling you man, social media has killed society and just opened up a new world and rhelm of possibility that is nowhere bear honorable. Not saying Facebook caused this instance, but it has brought on a social injustice of everything that has allowed so many people to voice their factless opinions and stir the pot on so many issues, that these are the kind of decisions being made as a result of it all.
Instead of thinking, "hmm, maybe we can just let the walkons and bench guys play, they vote not to play". Just selfish bullshit.
NBA has 30 teams, and have 12-15 active roster spots per team (360-450 on the active roster in the league). Cut this by position and the number gets even smaller. I get the player trying to protect themselves for the draft from an injury standpoint...just not sure I'm a fan of sitting out.
Do they stop driving cars as well to remove additional injury risks prior the draft?
@Birdman37 don't disagree with you on the NIT, but the sum of the parts is greater...
“The old lessons (work, self-discipline, sacrifice, teamwork, fighting to achieve) aren’t being taught by many people other than football coaches these days. The football coach has a captive audience and can teach these lessons because the communication lines between himself and his players are more wide open than between kids and parents. We better teach these lessons or else the country’s future population will be made up of a majority of crooks, drug addicts, or people on relief.”
