The NBA has devolved into a never-ending soap opera. Multimillionaire Steph Curry gripes at Donald Trump’s unfair economic policies; the young Bulls are too fragile or self-absorbed to get better, while the star players act out; Lamar Odom is found near death at a Nevada brothel and made a hero; Charles Oakley is charged with assault and dragged out of the Garden (and made the victim); Thunder players are mad, really mad, at Kevin Durant for choosing greener pastures; LeBron gripes about not having enough help to win another title.

They might as well rename the league “As the Basketball Turns.” As Khan said, I grow fatigued.
