I await your responses to my questions to you.
Maybe the money issue has to do with the fact they are paid to represent a business in which they are very well compensated for and while the compensation is tied directly to their skills, no one should be surprised that representing the league while on league business is part of the package deal.
Granted that David Stern could have approached this in a better manner, but the way I read it the rule only talks to clothing worn while on team or NBA business. i doubt that you would find anybody in corporate america who would disagree with the notion that while on the "clock" you dress in a manner that gives a good image of the company. If the matter was what they wore all the time, I would consider it an invasion the players rights, but since the issue is tied directly to business conducted in the name of the league I have no problem with it.
