The Power to Prosper



Sometimes a guy just wants to promote a video game. But don't that to the people at Fox News, who hit Josh Smith, Andre Iguodala, and Russell Westbrook hard with questions about whether or not they want to see the Bush tax cuts extended. Smith is noncommittal, Iguodala steadfastly supports Obama, and Westbrook is about as Thunder about it as anyone could be.

As you try to look past how bizarre it is to see these three in the same studio as Robin Leach's illegitimate son and Rick Santorum, please note that this is likely the first time in their lives that these athletes have been viewed as valued money-earners only, not role models to be held to a higher standard. It's a bit disgusting to expect someone to care about nothing other than their own self-interest, but at least it's a different form of immaturity than what we usually see out of sports journalism.

Y'know, I thought these guys held up quite well to the repetitous bleating.

I feel like I just watched Iggy do that from-behind-the-backboard dunk for the first time.

It is quite common on the news. They do the same thing with violence on media and Quentin Tarantino. I hate that kind of thing and the Host Pay Per Head community too.
