NBA Scandal Over the Word 'Owner'

Rebel Staff

The NBA has found itself embroiled in a new scandal this week after Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green took issue with using the word "owner" in sports. 

Green made the following comment in an Instagram post in which he reacted to to Houston Texans owner Bob McNair's controversial statement that the NFL "can't have inmates running the prison."

"For starters, let's stop using the word owner and maybe use the word Chairman. To be owned by someone just sets a bad precedent to start. It sets the wrong tone. It gives one the wrong mindset."

We'll start with the obvious here:

McNair literally owns the Houston Texans, so he can therefore call himself an owner. 

With his post, Green is implying that the term "owner" is racist because it implies that the players on the team are McNair's slaves rather than the fact that they are paid handsomely for what many would consider a "dream job."

This is all part of the left's goal to make white people feel guilty for slavery, a practice that was abolished over 150 years ago. The bottom line is that no person alive today is responsible for the sins of their ancestors, nor should people be chastised for using benign words in their proper context.

Then when he refers to his wife or children as “my wife, my children” he is indicating ownership. Oooooooo! Word games! What fun?

Maybe he should simply grow up. If he feels the word “owner” is offensive, and doesn’t want his contracted owned by some team “chairman”, he can always quit the team and the league. He is obviously in great physical shape. Maybe get a job hauling cement bags around a work site working for “the man”. At least then the word “owner” won’t come up. Just “boss man”.

Bob McNair’s statement should have been, “Can’t have the inmates running the asylum”, because a lot of the players are entitled nuts bars.

It seems we also need to rethink the term “Professional Athlete”

Pretty soon the NBA will have fans turning away from this sport too.
