    Adam Silver: NBA will no longer use the term owner.

    Team owners will now be referred to as governors.

    Now Mississippi has its next mascot. The Guvnahs.

    You have to say it in a british accent. "Hullo, Guvnah!"

    That's... got to be a joke.

    ETA: I do understand that the term "owner" could be deemed offensive in certain contexts. But... Governor?

    How else do you describe the person that owns the team?

    They own the franchise. They’re owners.

    Here's a pro tip: you don't have to care about this. It's a nothing issue that affects a grand total of zero people in any real, tangible way.

    Man, I’m glad they cleared that up. I’ve been wondering for years why they paid the players these huge contracts if they already owned them anyways. Makes way more sense now!

    Draymond Green apparently. Guess he’s the new Ethics and Compliance director of the commisioner’s office.

    I care about it in the sense that it is funny. Other than that, doesn’t really move the needle and won’t affect my enjoyment (or lack thereof) in the NBA product.

    Technically, the NBA is the Franchisor who owns the franchise. The Franchisees buy certain rights, but those rights can be taken away as shown by Donald Sterling being forced to sell his rights in the Clippers franchise.

    Yep, just another case of political correctness run amok.

    Dumb to change the name and dumb to care about changing the name. Everyone's a snowflake on both sides of the argument so just don't have it.

    How long before drafts are considered racists? After all, here are young black athletes lined up for rich white men to ogle over and decide which owns they want to buy the rights to.

    That will help Alabama get an NBA team, because in Birmingham they love the governor.

    This. I doubt there is one owner, franchisee, Governor, whatever that cares as much about this as some of you all do.

    soooo, do I now "govern" my house?
    governing a car is a goal of mine
    When I grow up, I want to govern an island
    I GOVERNED YOU!!!
    Governer: "Hello, I'm the Governor of the store, what may I help you with?"
    Customer: "Yes, I'd like to speak to the owner, not the manager."
    Governor: "I am the Governor, How may I help you?"
    Customer: "I want to speak to the owner, you're the manager"
    Governor: "We don't use the term 'Owner' around here, it could potentially offend somebody that may walk in"
    Customer: "That's all I need to know, have a good day"
