As the NBA moves closer to the cancellation of more games and more lost momentum from its spectacular 2010-11 campaign, it is time for me to move beyond my criticism of Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter, the leaders of the players association.

I’m on their side. I want to help them frame a public message that exposes the hypocrisy of the owners who have locked the players out.

In this protracted labor dispute, a group of largely conservative, right-wing billionaires are betraying the values and principles they allegedly hold dear: fix your own problems, pull yourself up by your bootstraps, quit looking for handouts.
