Hello hoops fans , this my blog I call this "The No Look Pass". First of all I have to talk about the lockout and how it effects those who love the game. The commissioner wants talks continue by Labor day,that is great news. Does this mean we have some real negotiating happening,probably but I am still not sure the season will start on time. That being said players are really looking to play over seas, the biggest name to commit is New Jersey's Deron Williams. He signed with a team in turkey. The same team that has started negotiations with Kevin Durant and also looking to add Kobe Bryant to their roster !!!
I also have to admit that with the great and very entertaining Charles Barkley when it comes to certain issues concerning the lockout. I agree with Mr.Barkley when it comes to Derrick Rose and other young stars with simular earning power, potential and future's. It is said that alot of these teams overseas don't pay the players. That being said why risk being injured by someone who has nothing to lose, especially an NBA career and contract. With so much on the line for young current NBA star's or soon to be star's why risk your future and earning potential. Mr.Barkley had a great suggestion, go back to school! Take this time and use it to work on obtaining your degree! Mr.Barkley receive's constant criticism for his comment's, this time he should be praised !!!
Until next week, peace and blessings.
