Is there anything we can do?

 

Witness


the most egregious superstar call in the history of superstar calls.  (First 1:00 of the video should be all you need.)

How big of a deal is this?  Am I overreacting?  What is the best way for us, the fans of small-market, perpetually screwed over NBA franchises to respond to this? 

Free agency isn't fair (Shaq forces his way to LA, Malone, Payton, Artest take major discounts to come there), trades aren't fair (Kareem, Kobe, Pau traded in lopsided deals), the Playoffs aren't fair ('02 Kings screwed out of a Title), and neither are regular season games.

I would like to see some sort of major gesture made by fed-up fans.  Some proposals I've seen elsewhere were to wear paper bags or makeshift Marc Davis/Tim Donaughy/Kobe masks to games, converging en masse on the next LA Laker game and staging a synchronized walkout upon the first bogus Kobe call, boycotting NBA products, or looking to Bill Simmons or Mark Cuban for leadership in organizing a grassroots movement to fix this.  What else can we, as fans, do to demonstrate our disapproval?
