Question What happened to the Thundersticks?

What happened to these things? Is the economy really that bad that the Raps can't afford $3 thundersticks to hand out?

They're hard to recycle/not bio-degradable, so the NBA joined the green movement and stopped teams from issuing them at games.

I noticed the dancers up there late in games grooving while they try and shoot FT's.

MacDonald's stopped being an NBA Sponsor.

Therefore no more "Free" thundersticks.

Which was a convenient time for the NBA, under the guise of 'going green', to not foot the bill. They didn't give a shit when they didn't have to pay.
