    Professional athletes as a whole should stay away from immediate forms of communication.

    I just don't find that funny.

    Basketball players are seriously out of touch with reality. I don't mean to get on Roy's case, he's a real class act, but people just say too many stupid things now. What happened to thinking before speaking.

    While he's "out of a job" temporarily, he has enough money to support himself. What about loads of other people that can't.

    Didn't mean for this to be a rant, but that tweet was not and is not funny.

    I'm sure Roy didn't mean it that way, but a lot of working class people will read that tweet. I'm sure for people that are out of a job or fear for their job, don't think it's funny either.

    Jeez, calm down people. Roy just posted a simple statement--he didn't even add a smile, a wink, an "lol" or anything like that...Just stating that he was out of a job--which is correct because of umm duh, the lockout. This tweet of his isn't anything to freak out over lol.

    It was funny. Roy's a class act.

    Thinking of Frank when I looked at your avatar.

    What do you think the official hiring meeting will be like for Frank.

    Except he's not really out of a job, he still has a contract that employs him as an NBA player. It is his and the other NBA players decision that they are not currently allowed to play in there. I don't have any pity for the players, they have a great deal and if they even made some slight concessions this would not be an issue.

    In the last three months I went from an excellent job making 70k+ a year, full benefits, and everything else I could possibly want before getting fired. I was fired because I had to drive to get to work instead of taking a taxi like I've done every day for 8 months, well they were waiting for me. I was fired, didn't receive unemployment, and now I'm wondering if I'm going to get evicted from my apt. My entire world was turned upside down essentially overnight.

    Believe it or not, despite all of that? I'm not angry at Roy Hibbert for merely stating he lost his job. Especially after he just lost his job.

    Are you crazy? He didn't lose his job. You act like he's going to have to go look for work elsewhere. He still has his job, he's still a Pacer, the work stoppage won't even come close to a calendar year.

    I'm not mad at Roy either, I just wish people would think before they speak/write something. You can't please everyone, but just don't think it was a good comment to make while the US and other countries are really struggling right now. It just shows that you are completely out of touch.

    And I'm tired and ready to relax this 4th of July weekend.

    He's not the first or only player tweeting something like that today.

    I don't care for it. At all.

    I don't know about "taking it seriously", but I don't care if it was 100% joke 100% serious or somewhere in between (I assume 100% joke), I just don't care for it.

    Well, some fans just want to "witch hunt" the players over the lockout... So, they're going to take offense to any remark that the players want to make about the lockout!

    As for Roy's tweet... Well, he is out of "his" job.. He didn't say anything about his financial situation!

    How many more times does it need pointed out that they aren't "out" of a job?

    They chose their own path, they can accept the consequences of it. I'd much rather trade places with him, right this very instance, and I do have a job.

    It just shows how out of touch with the real world they really are. He has the right to say it, but I also have the right to disagree with it.
