Sports and the culture wars are back in the news, with the NBA choosing to go the politically correct route again.
This time it’s the term ‘owner’ that’s causing a problem. Star players like Draymond Green of the Golden State Warriors object to the term. Green, during the HBO show ‘The Barber Shop’ said it fosters a “slave-to-master” relationship.
“You shouldn’t say owner,” Green said. “You should say CEO or chairman.”
Two teams now no longer use the term. Warner Todd Huston with Breitbart tells KTRH there's no teeth to this at all.
“It’s the kind of empty thing that a lot of people on the far left do. They come up with these things that are all for show and don’t affect anything,” Huston said.
Ratings are down almost 20% in the playoffs; and Huston says this kind of thing is why.
“You can look at the ratings and see it,” he stated.
The NBA says they haven't banned the term, but they call the owners 'Governors.'
