Are you pissed about the current state of the NBA? Angry that owners smoke Cubans on their giant yachts and NBA stars are traveling the world while you sit at home having to do something productive like wash the dishes, do laundry or clean the cats litter box? Are you pissed that Delonte West is taking food out of your childrens mouths? Bitter that theres not going to be an NBA season this year?
If so, then its time to Occupy NBA.
While the rich owners bitch and complain with the rich NBA brats about whos going to become even more richer, they seem to have forgotten about the 99 of people who actually fill up every arena every night the fans.
Fans are already pouring into their favorite teams stadium, demanding changes.
Some are even willing to get thrown out by security for the cause.
Those who cant get in are outside with their signs, protesting and showing their displeasure with the NBA and NBAPA.
Maybe we can even get super rich music artist and professional award night troll, Kanye West, to show up for support.
So bring your ball, a tent and your favorite Air Jordans because this isnt your ordinary basketball camp.
Were occupying the NBA.
The Washington Nationals will ask to speak to Houston Astros bench coach Alex Cora after the ALCS, Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe reported, which could throw a wrench into the Red Sox' plans to name Cora their manager.
The Sox appeared close to naming Cora to replace John Farrell after the Astros season is finished, NBC Sports Boston Red Sox Insider Evan Drellich reported earlier this week. Then the Nats decided to part ways with manager Dusty Baker after consecutive N.L. East titles but Division Series flameouts.
Cora, 41, as Cafardo points out, was once offered a player development job with the Nats, who were the last team he played for (2011) in his 14-plus years as a major league infielder, including 2005-08 with the Red Sox.
Nationals GM Mike Rizzo obviously has a fondness for Cora, telling MLB.com in 2011:
"I think it comes natural to him to be a teacher. Alex still has a lot left in his tank as a player. But he has my number, and when he’s done playing, he can make a call. It will be well-received."
After interviewing Cora, ex-Detroit Tigers manager Brad Ausmus and Ron Gardenhire, who took the Tigers job this week, Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told WEEI.com that he was still "undecided" if he'll interview anyone else.
