Barring something unforeseen happening like a player getting a season ending injury, the Golden State Warriors will probably win the NBA championship this season. But this fact is not stopping people from getting excited about the NBA season.

If anyone asks me again why I no longer get into sports I will just be able to point to the last year. With the NHL lockout, the whole Lance Armstrong circus, the NFL bounty persecution, Penn St, NBC's Olympic coverage, the BCS championship and let's not forget the Baseball sports writers, I am seriously wondering why I ever watched sports in the first place.

Now indentured servants may seem like a harsh word, but that is because what the NCAA does to their athletes is akin to indentured servitude or being a sharecropper. The NCAA and the power athletic conferences that make them up, basically get a ready group of workers to make them billions of dollars and pay them pennies on the dollar. It is an iron grip, that it would seem, will not be broken in our lifetime. The athletes have little in the way of support from the public, because quite frankly they feel no sympathy for them. Most had it a lot harder than the athletes just trying to pay for college. On top of that the athletes were popular and always got the guy or girl. So the fact that they are being treated unfairly and having money taken from them, just doesn't matter to John and Jane Q Public.
