The death of the earth is trendy issue these days and the NBA has decided to get involved and dedicate this week as a week of responsible Edutainment. They have launched lots of great initiaties. For every point scored this week Chris Bosh will plant a cabbage!
But we have obtained a classified memo from the very offices of David Stern listing some green initiatives that DID NOT make the cut! - Halftime farmers market - Carbon neutral dancers - Self-composting mascots - Craig Sager's blazers will now use chemical-free dyes - Encourage teams to "draft local" - Appoint Robert Parrish as NBA Green Czar - Phase out road games - Paperless contracts - Weatherproof Charles Barkley - Sponsor a Chia Pet drive - Develop Legler Sequestration technology - Purchase carbon offset credits every time LeBron James travels - Pre-season games to be played via Twitter - Steve Buckhantz used to power Phil Chenier - Work with partner T-Mobile to reduce "Fave Five" to "Fave Three" levels by 2012 - Charlie Villanueva: now hormone-free! - When Gilbert Arenas runs his dogs on the treadmill, sell the electricty that is generated back to the grid - Visitor showers use recycled hot dog greywater - Fair Trade gameworns
Hop on the comments and tell us NBA green ideas you would like to see in action!
