Having solved all other problems, the NBA has decided to tackle the most pressing issue of our time:

It is, indeed, real life:

More from TMZ:

“I don’t want to overreact to the term because, as I said earlier, people end up twisting themselves into knots avoiding the use of the word owner,” Silver said … “But, we moved away from that term years ago in the league.”

Oh, so they’ve been idiots for years, then. Good to know.

They’re “Governors”:

“We call our team owners ‘Governor of the team’ and ‘alternate Governor.'”

Silver says the word owner has sometimes slipped through in an NBA memo — but general rule in the office is to no longer use that term … adding, “I’m sensitive to it and I think to the extent teams are moving away from the term, we’ll stick with using Governor.”

You’ll stick with “Governor,” huh?
