The NBA is Continuing its Politically Correct Policy of No Longer Using the Word “Owner”

Published

on

Political correctness culture is making its way to the National Basketball Association.

According to a report from CBS Sports, NBA commissioner Adam Silver recently announced that the NBA will continue its move away from the use of term “owner” to describe individuals who possess controlling interests of teams. Instead, the NBA plans on using the terms “Governor of the team” and “alternate Governor.”

This change was motived by concerns that the term “owner” could have racial undertones. In the NBA, the overwhelming majority of players are of African Americans and the majority of owners are Caucasian.

The NBA stopped using the term years ago, and now players are starting to follow in the league’s footsteps.

“I don’t want to overreact to the term because, as I said earlier, people end up twisting themselves into knots avoiding the use of the word ‘owner,'” Silver said, via TMZ Sports. “But we moved away from that term years ago with the league. We call our team owners ‘Governors’ of the team and ‘alternate Governors. So I think it makes sense. As I said, I don’t want to overreact … but I’m sensitive to it, and I think to the extent that teams are moving away from the term, we’ll stick with using Governor.”

Draymond Green, starting forward of the Golden State Warrior, was one of the most prominent players to criticize the league’s past use of the word “owner.”

“You shouldn’t say owner,” Green said on an appearance on HBO’s The Shop. “[It should be called] CEO or Chairman. When you think of a basketball team … you think of the players that make that team.”

Emulating the league’s new practice, the Philadelphia 76ers recently changed the title of their owners to managing partners.

In the same vein, Steve Ballmer is now listed as chairman on the Los Angeles Clippers official website. Other teams are expected to follow suit by re-naming the titles of their owners in the near future.

Even sports these days are slowly kowtowing to PC culture.

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.

Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.

President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
