We love democracy.
That’s why we took a small poll, using our incredible journalistic resources (twitter) to ask a simple question.
We got a couple of responses from NBA players.
Let’s start with Roger Mason Jr. –

Our other response comes from Channing Frye –

Way to go, Josh. Basketball’s very own, Ross Perot, has decided he’s had enough of this 2 party system. Let’s check the Election Poll Center 2012 to see the progress.
Looks like this is too close to call. We’ll try this again in 4 years.
