Default NBA teams changing the term "owner" to Governor

The NBA may be backing down from using the word “owner” due to racial insensitivity.

After Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green argued against using the term on LeBron James’ HBO show “The Shop” late last year, the issue gained steam, per TMZ Sports, and at least two teams have already stopped using it.

“You shouldn’t say owner,” Green said, saying it should be changed to CEO, chairman or majority shareholder.

The Sixers have since changed the title of their owners to managing partners, and Steve Ballmer of the Clippers is listed as chairman on the team’s website.

“When your product is purely the labor of people, then owner sounds like something that is of a feudal nature,” Jon Stewart said on “The Shop.”

However, TMZ notes that there isn’t pressure coming from the NBA to change the titles.

“We refer to the owners of our teams as Governors,” the league told TMZ in a statement, “each team is represented on our Board of Governors.”

It's a good thing "you got owned" is something that isn't very common to say anymore.

Can I say “I’m a homeowner” or is that now problematic?

This seems like silly & odd PC sh^t that has lil to no upside. An owner of a NBA team IS an owner. If you wanna call a guy who owns a team the Postmates Delivery Driver of the LA Lakers fair play knock yourself out, but he's still the owner of the team so this is a meaningless dumb lil thing thats about words over anything that makes any sense.

Should the owner of Walmart be the Governor too? Governor Walton.

I see more problems with the racial sh^t with the Washington Redskins still existing than an owner being called an owner.

If you wanna be, but honestly doesn't being the CEO of your house sound cooler?
