NBA is Nothing But Alcohol

071512-2-NBA-Jason-Kidd-OB-PI_20120715135532901_660_320

  In 23 years of closely following the NBA, I can’t remember alcohol having this much of a presence. Other than the Miller Genuine Draft Moment NBC used to put on in 4th quarters, I never got the sense that liquor was being rammed down our throats…not, until now. All the talk during the...

Stern had to suspend ‘Birdman’

  A few weeks ago, Chicago Bulls center Nazr Mohammed fouled Lebron James in transition. After both players collided, Mohammed turned around and shoved James with both hands. LBJ was sent to the floor while Nazr was sent to the showers, early. The Chicago ‘bigman’ also was suspended for the next game of the series,...

  Mark Cuban took a break from blasting Derek Fisher and annoying Phil Jackson this week to claim that his Dallas Mavericks may consider drafting the NBA’s first female player this summer, Brittney Griner of Baylor University. “Would I do it? Right now, I’d lean toward yes, just to see if she can do it,”  Cuban told ESPN...

The real problem with the NBA schedule

  Those of you who visit BlogNBAsketball regularly know that I’m not a fan of the NBA’s schedule-makers. {Mavs at Lakers on Opening Night?! No wonder L.A. didn’t show up.} I’m seeing a much more serious problem lately with the NBA schedule, and it has nothing to do with the recent Popovich controversy in Miami....

NBA vs Spurs: Who’s to blame?

  Both. Quite frankly, the National Basketball Association (and David Stern) owes the San Antonio Spurs organization. This is a team that’s won the championship four times since 1999. Yet, do we ever see them showcased on commercials or even on the Christmas Day schedule? The only time they get to play on NBA Opening...

Fines for Flopping?

  The Commish, David Stern, has put up with questions about ‘flopping’ in the NBA for years. It looks like he’s finally got a firm answer to them. League spokesman Tim Frank said Thursday that the league is finalizing procedures to deal with flopping, the art of falling down when little or no contact was...

Insiders tell the NY Daily News that David Stern is planning to tell NBA owners at their April Board of...

Real Talk: The Exploitation Of Lin

  {per NBA protocol, some “keywords” have been highlighted in red below}   Am I the only one who thought it was bizarre that a one-hour slot on NBATV was reserved for the Jeremy Lin press conference All-Star Saturday? Something tells me that Jeremy didn’t request this event. I guess the NBA and David...

The Paul Saga: What Did We Learn?

The Paul Saga: What Did We Learn?

NBA fans will always remember where they were when Chris Paul was traded…both times. The saga has ended, mercifully. It was a rollercoaster ride with twists and turns that would have made even Manu Ginobili dizzy. It also taught us a few lessons about the NBA….. David Stern is a great General Manager. If...

Stern, NBA Holding Paul For Ransom

Stern, NBA Holding Paul For Ransom

It has become painfully apparent that David Stern and the NBA office think very highly of point guard Chris Paul…to the point where they are asking the world for him in every single trade discussion. It’s a ‘king’s ransom’…and it ain’t even Lebron James (ah, 2010, what a year). The only problem is, they...

The Commish, David Stern, has been labeled as hanging the players out to dry. Wrong, he’s done his best to help the players in labor talks. From day one, Stern has been convincing the “hardline” owners to ease off some of their radical demands. Setting a deadline for Wednesday was not his choice.

Right on the Mark

  It’s been over a decade since Mark Cuban came onto the NBA scene.  I remember telling myself then: “Dang, Eddie Munster got PAID.” Seriously, who was this new guy taking shots at David Stern in the media? Was he really serious with all those crazy ideas for rule changes?? It didn’t take Mark long to challenge the championship Laker dynasty in the...
