With the NBA and the Players Association bickering and crying over each others stance on a new CBA I rolled my eyes and went along with my business. Each day I’m getting more and more disconnected from basketball because of this greed and selfishness being displayed by both sides. I really have removed myself from it in a similar manner to an NFL lockout. Now, my focus is on that.
But, I can’t help but think about the Hornets from day-to-day. One thought passed through my mind, “What if I never saw Chris Paul play for the Hornets?” and more importantly, “what if I never see the Hornets play in person?”
I’m very sad and almost depressed that I may never see the Hornets play in New Orleans, or at all. It’s a goal of mine to some day see them play with Chris Paul and David West on the team. Though it seems my goal is becoming a distant dream. As the NBA bickers, sourness reigns supreme among fans.
I am planning on coming to New Orleans some time in the near future, but will I be there for an NBA game at all?
If I go in December I doubt I’ll see the Hornets play, and that’s a shame because it’s been a long-time dream of mine. It is expensive to travel all the way from Australia.
The more I ponder on it, the more I question my investment into the NBA as a league. Why bother spending so much time, effort, attention, to something that’s only interested in robbing your pockets and leaving you filled with empty hope and short-lived excitement?
I don’t like where things are heading in the NBA, I don’t like the hard stance from both sides, I don’t like that Chris Paul will almost certainly have to be traded.
All I wanted was to watch an Idol before he disappeared, that’s not to much to ask.
