offices are part of corperate america which have convinced society that wearing suits is what is "presentable". mcdonalds employees do not wear suits on the job and Mcdonalds isnt telling their employees that they cannot have headphones or urban wear on when coming to work or going to pick up their check.

yes, yes, yes...its the rule and the players are simply gonna have to suck it up. but its wrong, and not the way that the issue of sagging ratings and attendence should have been addressed. if the ron artest incident didnt happen this dresscode would never have happened. the league is going to shit cuz of knucklehead players getting into fights and bitching about contracts with players saying dumbshit like "i need more than 10 millions dollars a year cuz i have to feed my family" and players not showing up to training camps cuz they dont wanna be on this or that team. NOT because they have on chains and the latest in sean jean and roca wear.

with this said, i can understand the decision knowing that sterns hands were tied knowing that if these ticket holders demands to desolve the "hiphop" image that the NBA has in some way, he would've lost customers.

im just saying lets call it what it is and stop making up bullshit like "its going to benefit our children" or "its gonna teach people to dress for success" or "this is how people in other careers have to dress and we should do it as well".

i don't know nothing about it, but i don't make a tragedy on it...i mean, man if you work for someone you have to respect some rules, so here in italy if a football player must appear on tv or in public the team give him a dress to wear with the team logo...off course when a player stay out for injury, but go to the arena to see the match he's recognize as a team member so he has to wear in the "right" way....overall is stupid trying to hide racial reason or controversy behind a dress code imposition....but i think that the player cannot face it, they r worker of the team, so they have to respect their rules....the problem is this fucking world...

I don't even see whats the big deal, a bruda could still exude culture in a suit. A suit is not your typical "white" attire. Thats the stupidest and most ignorant thing I've ever heard. A black man can were a suit and exude his hip hop back round. Fucking Jay Z does it all the time. Bottom line is that these men represent the NBA and if they say you have to dress this way when your at work, and YOU GETTING PAID MILLIONS EVEN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, you fucking do it. I don't think its a bad thing. When you step off that bus you are the NBA, they want a refined masses and really their isn't anything wrong with that. Why does everything have to be a race thing?

well then if its all the same then they shoulda just let people wear what they wanted. but its not all the same, they want to get rid the supposedly negative hiphop image.
