Don’t worry. Although I’ve already written a couple of things on the NBA lockout, I promise not to make it a habit because I find the whole thing as stupid as you do.
But this video rocks!
It’s an animated breakdown of the labor war between the owners and players. The audio is in Taiwanese. But don’t worry. There are English subtitles. Besides, the cartoons break it down quite nicely by themselves.
This production comes from the website NMA.tv (Next Media Animation). It includes Lakers and union mouthpiece Derek Fisher playing one-on-one against NBA commissioner David Stern, Stern carrying a chainsaw to divide a pizza as Fisher and LeBron James watch, a doctor caring for “franchises” (logos with dangling legs) in intensive care … well, I don’t want to give it all away.
And now, we present our feature attraction.
