NBA Lays Off Over 100 Employees

Whether or not this has to with the ongoing lockout, we can’t say for certain. What we do know is that the League wants to reduce costs by $50 million in all areas. AP reports: “The NBA has laid off about 114 people over the last two days, planned cost-cutting moves that a league spokesman says are ‘not a direct result of the lockout.’ The laid off employees represent about 11 percent of the league office workforce in New York, New Jersey and internationally.”

    they at least get to file unemployment… i wonder if professional athletes are allowed to do the same

    As much as this sucks for the employees and their families, it makes sense. When Conan’s writers were let go when he was, he paid them because he was classy and considered them family. Yeah, it’s heartless, but the NBA was always a business… And you don’t need staff when there’s no play, especially internationally.

    Let me guess, this is also the player’s fault?

    @JTaylor21, I’m sure bull22 will pin the blame squarely on the players.

    Damn. This lockout stuff needs to end.

  • Andrew Weaver

    This lockout has little to do with the players and more to do with the owners sentimental reaction of losing revenue. Attributed by the NBA being structured in a way that mirrors big businesses harmful profit schemes. These owners expect nothing less in return than the inflated values from their assets. It’s this type of mentality being championed by Commissioner Stern and his network of associates. That’s why commissioner Sterns actions have violated the leagues rules and guidelines. His actions have disregarded players concerns and refused customers rights. An example of this behavior is giving full control to corrupt referees who openly admit to betting on games, making wrong calls, and saying they don’t care. This leads to a corruptive practice of influencing games with questionable regulating being used. This type of behavior is disgraceful and unethical. It’s a spit in the face to players, fans and the leagues image. That’s why I’m asking NBA fans to stand behind the calling for Commissioner Sterns resignation. Because it’s fans who built the NBA’s empire and it’s fans who can change it.

    instead of watching summer league, im smoking a j and reading unfunny jokes on slam. oh god

  • Matt Park

    I’m not too knowledgeable of the intricacies of the CBA and the situation, etc., but I hope that the league uses the lockout as an way to end the Referee Union and finally fire garbage refs.

  • bull22

    @lahuey, my assertion from the beginning is it is both the owners and players fault…… i work for a company that handles some of the leagues finances
    and have pretty good overview of all these bs games both parties are playing… the only ones sucking up squarely to one group or the other must have either a vested interest in them or just plain stupid, because in the end our opinion matters very little to the owners and players…
