I wonder if they can handle moving an entire franchise.
When the NBA Lockout finally ended a huge sigh of relief could be heard across America, not only from team owners and players but also from those whose businesses are directly affected when a work stoppage occurs. Sporting apparel companies, sports bars, travel agencies, all are on the periphery of professional sports but are directly affected when seasons abruptly end.
http://www.SportsRelocation.com is one such business.
Headquartered in Beverly Hills and affiliated nationwide, SportsRelocation.com is in business to help with all relocation needs of professional athletes and the NBA work stoppage directly affected Ikem Chukumerije, CEO, and his staff. Not surprisingly when the lockout ended business for Mr. Chukumerije immediately increased more than 35% and continues to show signs of recovery as athletes are in need of short term leases, transportation of possessions and vehicles, and other relocation services provided by http://www.SportsRelocation.com.
And this is just the beginning: training camps open this Friday, December 9th, and that is also the first day that teams can sign free agents and make trades, meaning quite a few players will be relocating within the next few days. This new 66-game season is moving forward at warp speed as the pre-season begins December 16th and the regular season will commence December 25th.
Trade talks have been fast and furious of late, none bigger than the proposed trade of Chris Paul, the ever-so-talented point guard for the New Orleans Hornets. Front-runners in the Chris Paul sweepstakes appear to be the L.A. Clippers and Golden State Warriors but the Boston Celtics are still very much alive. All indications are that the trade will take place this weekend and that will most likely be the first of many trades happening in the next few days after Friday. There is a very real possibility that literally dozens of players will be traded within the next week.
Exciting times for sure across America as NBA players, coaches and owners prepare for this long-awaited season to begin. While they prepare for the opening tip-off all other related businesses and employees are in motion and gearing up for a very busy month of December and beyond.
Where some see hopes of small market sports fans smashed on the rocks of reality, others see a profitable business model.
It is ALL a business.
