Dave Berri Talks the Lockout and How Socialists have taken over the NBA

Posted on October 19, 2011 by


Dave Berri hopped (or skyped) across the pond to talk on the BBC show “Wake up to the Money” about the NBA lockout

Dave has been like Stern and Hunter and has been making the rounds on the media circuit.

In all of his talks perhaps the best of his accomplishments is to get a British host to call the NBA owners socialist. For all their talk of capitilism and free markets, the truth is when viewed from the outside it’s all a bunch of hot air.


Update: One issue raised in the BBC interview was that players in the Premier League receive more than 70% of league revenue.  Apparently the Premier League is not going out of business.
