What these fools are doing is pretty much the same thing that Nike did to the NBA. These sneaker company idiots started targeting younger and younger kids in middle and high schools with their swarmy tongues and lucrative deals. Turning promising talent into egomaniacs that can only dunk the ball. The NBA's virtually unwatchable now since they were allowed to infiltrate the youth. Instead of learning how to use the glass on a fall away jumper or take some time practicing free throws, these kids are pampered night and day until they become useless on the court. (Lebron James might be the exception to the rule). Just watch an NBA game and you'll know what I'm saying. The new cliche that kids are screaming about now and will get air-time on 24/7 is "I failed my test because I'm a conservative." If Horowitz is allowed with all the other buffoons to enter the schools by the education officials we'll surely have a true prozac nation. Maybe David is in league with the drug companies. That might explain it part of it.
