NBA Lockout Vigil: Day 130


We’re two days away from the arbitrary D-Day, so things could get interesting, especially tomorrow. But I’m kinda sick of talking about all that crap. So we’ll play a few twitter games over the next few days.

Tonight: #FakeBroussardTweets, from today (and courtesy of @AdamKoscielak, editor at Sun N’ Gun, who was also about the only person besides me to try this specific hashtag out)

The inspiration: from Chris Broussard’s Twitter account today. It’s possibly the worst tweet of “sources” ever. Why? Well, it took sources to say that there won’t be a consensus in the player’s voting. No crap. I could have told you that. Any NBA fan could have told you that. But our obsession of sources somehow makes it “more official”.

And if you have any good ones, use the hashtag #FakeBroussardTweets on Twitter. These might not be that “good”, but it’s my best shot.

From earlier:

Sources tell me there may or may not be NBA Basketball this season. “It could go either way…” #FakeBroussardTweets
Sources tell me that they might actually not be sources. #FakeBroussardTweets
Sources say that players want more money, while others say that owners are the ones who in fact want more money. #FakeBroussardTweets

Here’s one on politics:

Some people may want to vote for Obama in 2012, while others may vote against him: “There’s two different parties to choose from…”

Here’s one on competitive balance in the NBA:

Some owners think competitive balance is a key issue in these negotiations, while others ignore it: “Not everyone is focused on it…”

Here’s Broussard’s sources on the impact of the Sixers new ownership:

Some think they can improve the team’s value, while others think they will decrease it: “We aren’t entirely sure yet…”

And finally, here’s Broussard on the Occupy Wall Street movement:

Some think they can create social change, while others protest on principle “We aren’t very well organized but there’s a lot of us…”
