‘Gover­nor’ an absurd NBA ti­tle

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - LINDA HAR­RIS Hunt­ing­town, Mary­land

How much more po­lit­i­cally cor­rect can we get (“NBA done us­ing term ‘owner’ over racial sen­si­tiv­ity con­cerns, com­mis­sioner says,” Web, June 24)?

The idea that a per­son who ac­tu­ally does own a part, or all, of any or­ga­ni­za­tion, busi­ness, etc., should not be called the owner is absurd.

NBA Com­mis­sioner Adam Sil­ver should not bend to po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness. With the salaries that ball play­ers of all sports com­mand to­day, any com­par­i­son to slav­ery is truly a moot point.

Play­ers have the means and op­por­tu­nity to leave the team when­ever they want — one way or an­other.

Try­ing to com­pare own­er­ship of a team fran­chise to enslave­ment of the play­ers is an ab­so­lutely ridicu­lous idea from some­one who ap­pears not to have much self-esteem.
