Some NBA teams scrap term 'owner' over racial insensitivity

Several NBA teams are scrapping the term “owner” to describe those who hold ownership stake in each team to avoid the perception of racial insensitivity by some of the players they employ.

The idea first gained some traction in 2018, when the Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green said during an episode of HBO’s “The Shop,” “You shouldn’t say owner” when talking about the top executive of each team.

“When your product is purely the labor of people, then owner sounds like something that is of a futile nature,” comedian Jon Stewart said, also appearing on the episode.

Re: Some NBA teams scrap term 'owner' over racial insensitivity

They're fucking team owners not player owners. This especially doesn't make sense in the NBA where the players have by far the strongest player union in all of sports. This might make more sense in soccer where teams "sell" players, or in the NFL where you can be disposed of like trash with no compensation.

I agree with BM shit like this allows conservatives to undermine the actual important social changes liberals try to make. Conservatives be like "first we couldn't say fags and ni99ers, now we can't say owner anymore?!”

Team president is now the Overseer and the Owner is the General.

there is a tipping point when some stuff goes overboard.

This is one of them
