Topic: NBA Lockout – Memphis Mayor AC Wharton

The NBA lockout is a nightmare for those who depends on the revenue from the games.  According, to SI.com the television network partners at ABC, TNT and ESPN will surely be fuming at the prospect of no games on Christmas Day and beyond.

Players will scramble to sign overseas while having to admit that their bold move backfired. Owners will continue to see the lasting impact of their decisions on both the game at large and their bottom line. City leaders like Wharton will begin to run out of patience when their people are the ones being punished.

“We wish the [lockout] had not occurred,” Wharton said. “We wish it would end immediately. It is damaging our citizens, our businesses, even right now. It’s not a matter of whether our city can withstand the losses or not, but you have to look at it in the entire context.”

This death march needs to stop now. Let sanity, and the season, survive.
