Ten People Happiest the NBA Lockout is Over
1 year ago
Are you one of them?
This past weekend, after faces were stuffed with Thanksgiving dinner and shoppers attacked with pepper spray, we woke up Saturday morning to the glorious news that the NBA lockout finally coming to an end. While team owners, players, people who work at the arena and most importantly the fans were excited to hear the news, there are segments of the population who are even more overjoyed that a new NBA season will start on Christmas day. Loop 21 compiled a list of people who dropped to their knees (some of them literally) to give thanks to the basketball gods.
1.) Women Who Planned On Auditioning For The Next Season of Basketball Wives
Even though the current cast members make dating washed up athletes look like an easy job, dating or being married to a man that is pretty much unemployed is a task. If the lockout continued women itching at their chance to squabble on national television would've seen their hopes dashed.
Granted rappers and average Joes in need of attention have helped strippers pay their bills over the last few months, but with out that NBA money rolling in, that's all they've been able to do, pay bills. Now that the lockout is over, these exotic entertainers can again return to the Louis Vuitton store. No more painting the bottom of their heels red, they can get back to buying real Louboutins.
Let's not beat around the bush. Hoes have been out here hurting since the lockout. In a story published at Larry Brown Sports last week, "a man named Henry" said that his escort service has taken a huge hit without NBA ballers purchasing some of his merchandise. Matter of fact, things got so bad at one point that league MVP Derrick Rose was accused of stiffing a prostitute after she rendered her services. C'mon, hoes got to eat too.
4.) Married Men Across America
Husbands around America let out a huge sigh of relief when the NFL lockout out came to an end. But football only comes on on Sundays, Mondays and sometimes Thursdays? What were they going to do with the rest of the week. Thankfully, now that the NBA is returning they can spend their time listening to Charles Barkley ramble instead of their wives.
