So let me get this straight, 24 million people out of work in the U.S., and the players of the NBA want more money.

What these overpaid "jerkoffs" need to realize is the ripple effect they will cause to the people who depend on the NBA to earn a living. Arena workers, team employees, and of course the many restaurants that count on the NBA games across North America to stay in business. 

Alice Cooper's restaurant Cooper'stown in Phoenix, Arizona sits across the street from the US Airways and relys on Phoenix Suns home games to stay in business; but with the current NBA lockout, Cooper stands to lose around $500,000 dollars if the strike cancels the entire 2011-'12 season. With the economy in such a rut, you would think the NBA owners and players could figure out a way to split 4.3 billion dollars!
