The Iron Sheik tells NBA to stop being greedy. That should do it.


Well, if NBA players and owners are not going to listen to David Beckham and end this lockout, we’re going to have to bring in the big guns:

The Iron Sheik.

Yes the famous, racially-stereotyped wrestler pitted as a counterbalance to Hulk Hogan’s All-American good guy persona of the 1980s has weighed in on the NBA lockout. Finally, we have the voice of reason. And he thinks their all stupid. (Thanks to Eric Freeman of Ball Don’t Lie for this one.)

There you have it. Complete with a reference to Virgil that I don’t get in the least.

You want to argue with the Iron Sheik? I thought not.
