As part of an occasional series featuring public figures professing their love for sports, HuffPost BlackVoices presents "Love Of The Game."

This week award-winning R&B singer Keith Sweat shares his thoughts on the ongoing NBA lockout:

"It's like anything: They got to do what they got to do to get that check right. It's no different from if you're not happy with the money you're getting at the job, or you're not happy with your boss. Or you're putting a whole lot of work in and you don't feel like you're being reciprocated for it, then you got to do what you got to do. You know basketball ain't going nowhere, similar to the football situation. That's what America's built on, baby! But they just got to get the money right. They're arguing about millions and millions of dollars -- I can't even imagine that. So it is what it is."

Quick Poll

Do you agree with Keith Sweat?

Yes, that's what America's built on, baby!
