Arison To Critic: You’re Barking At The Wrong Owner


Heat owner Micky Arison interacted with a random twitter follower Friday night, who tweeted at Arison, “Fans provide all the money you’re fighting over.” Replied Arison: “Honestly u r barking at the wrong owner.” He agreed with one follower’s request for him to starting barking at the other owners. A fine should be on the way for violating David Stern’s order for owners to keep silent about the lockout.

    should be obvious that the owner of the Heat would want to get this show on the road as soon as possible.

    it’s just logical 4 Arison to want the season to start. He’s the 1 with the most to lose. Well him plus Dooling and Buss

  • EtheKnickfan

    Than give us the names of those we should be barkin at!

    Paul Allen, from what I’ve been reading.

  • T-Money

    that does put a chink in the nba’s armor – stern is not speaking for his whole constituency.

  • ChipS

    His team might be disliked, but from what I hear, he’s a real cool owner. Somebody asked him about his feelings on Donald Sterling and he responded “lol” me: lol

  • LA Huey

    I didn’t realize Keyon Dooling was among those with the most to lose this season.

    ^LOL

  • Ryan

    Start barking Mr. Arison, start barking.

    Of course, Micky Arison wants to end the lockout soon. Like Buss. The prime years of their team are going to waste because of this lockout.

    KEYON DOOLING WAS/IS THAT DUDE. IVE ALWAYS LIKED HIS GAME. HES TOUGH AND GRIMY. ASK RAY ALLEN, THAT WAS SOME CLASSIC ISH RIGHT THERE. WHENEVER HES GOTTEN MINUTES, HE HAS PRODUCED.

    Owners that are making big money should complain about how greedy the broke owners are being. Take Jerry Buss for example, he spent like 110 million last year on player salaries because he had to pay a luxury tax and on the new CBA he figues to have to trim his payroll for “competitive balance” (which will never be had) and yet he’ll likely spend the same amount of money because of revenue sharing. The Thunder have done nothing but make smart decisions and yet they figure to help pay for the Blazers expenses because Paul Allen decided to over spend for players and buy 5 extra draft picks every year. Arison put together a desirable situation in Miami to lure good players there and yet he’s gonna have to give Taylor, the owner of the T-Wolves, money because he managed to put together a really sh*tty situation.

    He is greedy. And yes Parity can be reached because the most successful league in pro sports, the NFL, has come a long way in propagating it. 22 teams lost money last season. That’s a business model that is unsustainable. Arison doesn’t care because like most Billionaires he’s thrived on screwing everybody else in his own narcissistic interests. Are there fans that actually believe that you can have a league that is predicated on the idea of twenty four glorified D league teams and six superstar teams? Please…the fact that Arison cited his own teams attendance as a reason that it works shows just how myopic he’s being.

    The NBA’s collusion in this whole event, is that they’ve created the monsters. In the last ten years the individual superstars became more important than the teams, and because of that we find ourselves in this current mess.
    The owners have realized their mistake and they’re trying to right the ship. Is it too late? Maybe. When you have people who have only been fans for the last ten years who don’t know any different starting to Parrot Dwayne Wade about how Parity is stupid and impossible then you know that we’re in trouble.
