Two weeks ago, I wrote a short column titled “Opinion: NBA Use of the Term “Governor” Instead of “Owner” is PC Nonsense. I believe this to be nonsense because NBA owners don’t actually OWN THE PLAYERS, they simply own equity in the team that player currently represents.
The beef was started by Draymond Green and others, who felt like the term was racially insensitive. As such, the NBA no longer uses the word owner, but prefers “governor” instead.
Right, so it’s rather corny, and Stephen A Smith agrees:
