League Bylaws require the league show the Owner's actions injured the NBA product and this kind of "Objection" from a star player could help facilitate that arguement, especially as it impacts the team's endorsements and potentially even Regional TV deal negotiations.

I went a month or two ago to the Frenchman loacation, but was a bit let down. It was extremely crowded, so it was like a madhouse during most of the night.
One of the audience members playing a suspect wound up leaving half way through the event, so that caused problems as well.

| Pelicans Talk|| re: Nerlens Noel was never going to be a Pelican - WB504 on 7/16/14 at 7:38 am|
As much as Bill Simmons rips on us for the trade, he said during the recent draft that he viewed Noel as a hustle player off the bench. Sorry but if that's the case, I'm taking Jrue 10/10 in that scenario. ...

The plan was at least IMO was Melo or Lebron and part of the pitch would be to let them hand pick their coach. Obviously that didn't happen, so they will prob turn to Byron Scott.

Still too early to tell. Yeah he's looked good in the summer league, but that doesn't always translate to the real games.
