[awesome video] - is it basketball...or socialism?

While nobody was looking, the N.B.A. figured out how to fight inequality.

Professional sports — the pinnacle of pure competition. Thirty N.B.A. teams stocked with the world's best basketball players, all vying for one championship trophy.

But here's the truth that doesn't get said often enough: Preserving competition on the court requires strict limits on competition everywhere else.

The N.B.A. knows that unregulated competition would be a disaster. And the N.B.A.'s rules, as explained in the video ...[below], could help to revive the American economy, too. It may be a while before you can catch a live game, but you can still pick up something from watching the N.B.
