Bank Shot

Hey, guess what? There’s a recession and it’s screwing up just about everything, including the NBA. Yep, that’s right, the professional sports world is taking it in the backside alongside us peons. The squad that hails from the banking nucleus of these here jacked-up United States, the Charlotte Bobcats, may be most at risk. If banks are in trouble, it means corporate spending goes down, which means the team may go down, too. Feel sorry for them yet? Um, we don’t. All we want is for the Phoenix Suns to take care of business when the Bobcats visit for a preseason tussle.
