Drain migraine calling out James Dolan you've been covering this league you know owners you know former commissioners and the current commissioner. It's not every day. When a black all star pulls out a New York Knicks owner and ties slave master mentality. To his name. A pot stirred up. Everybody's entitled to do whatever they want do. I cant they just certain matter respective owners usually get and Eckerd they'd be with this administration generally. Respect is less. Also we also understand that just because you're an owner doesn't need it tolerate whether it would be world seat double barrel so. You know obviously it is eight barely out heated issue but it comes back to. Anybody can say they want to some articulate thoughts. Rick Horrow is our guests were you wrote a really detailed piece on step curry. And his connection to under our armor but the under armour founder and CEO Kevin plank and his support.

Backing the athletes who Wear their shoes and where there apparel. And you know we get people boycott the White House for all kinds of frustration so. You know we're we're ourselves which at first it. The issue now is regardless of party affiliation sports messages that horse is highly visible frequently watched it be misconstrued. It was very quick under armour. Pat one likes which stepped curry obviously Kevin plank because there is endorsement opportunities there you know be a position where. Somebody actually flies in the face app argue they've met their pets all up but the bottom line is if it's not the question. Aptly be role models or not like Charles Barkley. Or with social.

A few deep dive when we Melissa came out of the top three teams when it comes to revenue when network the knicks the lakers warriors come and at number three and tired in the warriors who are gonna leave the what you've found out with their ticket prices are clearly the most entertaining team.

You remember how easy it is to not remember. What it was the Al when he was first starting it took a little out. Our best basketball. That race ticket price is 50%. For it. You know that front rose 750 bucks that she brought the other places and what you think about it with Joseph lake says we got a great product at the that product. So people don't like because they ought to be public service to the election got game its border. And remember he's paying for any arena building basically. At a record on his own pocket that rabbit so it's all a great. And it does put more pressure on eighteen to perform but lists they got it later.
