This image was removed from Getty Images' site because the copyright owner, the NBA, told them to take it down given the Wizards' (formerly the Bullets) recent issues with guns in the locker room. Later, at the request of Getty, the league permitted them to put the picture back on their site for editorial clients. When the only pictures of news events are controlled by the subjects of the news, your right to know is threatened. At least that's what I think. You?
