Why would they walk out? They want a shot at the championship for their careers. A symbolic walk-out won't achieve their goals, either for a better career or in getting the guy removed. An armband?

I do not have a tv and do not follow b ball yet went to a playoff game in PDX last night so I saw this story when looking at sporting news. Both he and his gf make me sick.

They deserve each other.
