yeah....

I like that idea...If a team has a Stephen Jackson type on their team, they should approach the guy and talk to him about his habits and urge him (for the good of the team and everyone including himself) to stop going to these places, and then go from there... If he continues, help him work his way off your roster....

no need to punish everyone or send the message that "all NBA players are children who cant decide for themselves what is appropriate"

people dont deserve that

your right it is an overeach but look at what may be the basis of this, the teams do not regulate their players, nfl teams have curfews when the teams travel and are in training camp or the post season... i read that grady little was going to insitute something along this lines in the upcoming season since last years debacle where one of the dodgers pitchers cut his hand in a bar the night before the playoffs (still more to that story i'm sure)

so this may be a warning shot across the various organazations bow to clean up their own house before the league does it for them

What a bummer. Now how are players going to get shot at, stabbed at, and arrested?

yeah, the only problem is that Stern is putting the whole league under this cloud of suspicion and he is actually hurting the leagues image by treating all players like they dont know any better...

its places that have high incidents of criminal activity, IE - the police being called. its pretty simple.

Police get called to almost every club at some point or another.... I know of good clubs where there have been shootings outside....but that doesnt mean the club is a bad establishment or that trouble is the norm...


if you go down Old City in Philly, the clubs are great, good security, no illegal activity, well maintained..... but there have been incidents... doesnt make them a bad club....

Barkley supposedly groped a female in a club down there...the club itself is great, not a threat in any way....but an incident occured there... Iverson got shot at outside Glam... Glam is a wonderful club, as is Bleu Martini(next door) but something happened in front of these clubs..

sh*t happens...

I like to see how they come with these trouble spots



Thats why it should at least be a team by team issue if anything because locally people know the situation better

Rasheed, do you think players should be allowed to carry a gun in their waistband during the game? Just to keep it real and so noone disrespects them?

why discuss any topic then? politics can only be talked about by politicos? sports can only be discussed by the athlete of their said sport... does that mean we can't talk about what food we like because we are not chefs? what about music books and movies? why don't you sit down and make a list of what we can discuss here and get back with us...

unlike you, I don't stalk players in nightclubs, so a player's right to visit a certain nightclub is of no consequence to me.

And if that happened I bet Rasheed would be all "David Stern is a punk ass *****!! Homie was just protecting his honor by shooting that mark ass foo in the face. 20 games?! Next, I bet David Stern is gonna put a ban on smacking yo babies momma up when she runs her mouth! Stern needs to go!"

a city in ny dictated a "trouble spot" has a certain number of felony related incidents during a year, specifically related to

drug dealing
guns
homicide

its not just clubs that have a fight or something, its a pattern of drug or criminal activity. not just a fun club with a few problems.
