If you have watched TV or listened to Sports Talk Radio over the last month you have been indited with story after story about how bad NBA Players are for taking nights off. How DARE they sit out games when healthy? Such a disservice to the fans and people that spend their hard earned money. So selfish.
Apparently golfers going on Spring Break and skipping tournaments to booze it up it just good ole' fun. Actually it's a GIGANTIC double standard and it's inherently racist. The lack of a reaction to this just shows you how the industry of sport, media and fans view NBA players as property that needs to "work". Golfers on the other hand are just having fun. And this isn't just a "basketball thing" either. Remember when NFL WR - Odell Beckham Jr. went on a boat during his free time last season and we lost our collective minds!
One of these things is not like the other. What's the difference?
