A thread where people can put things that don't make sense in other threads and aren't really worthy of a new thread has been a big success in the hockey forum so I thought I would start one here in the hoops forum as well.It looks like the NBA is going to lock out the NBA refs. The level of officiating is already horrible in the NBA so I hate to think how bad it will be with replacement refs.

This ref thing is going to be a disaster. The refs have been atrocious the last couple of years, but I don't think having all new officials will be any better, likely much worse. The NBA needs new referee blood, but this will be way too much, too soon and will be a disaster.

not a chance. It's funny to say but, in reality, the officiating will get appreciably worse which is bad considering it was already crappy.

agreed. I think 1995 was the last time replacement refs were used and that was pretty damn bad.I feel for the NBA refs tho...it's one of the toughest sports to monitor and fans will always have their bias towards their teams. I don't think it's really that bad.So new NBA video games coming out soon. 2K10 or Live 2010?

I dunno about that. So many NBA refs are So old and entrenched. I don't know that it would be a bad thing to get some young ref's in there. There should be an age limit on ref's, IMO.

2K10, and it's really not close if last year's games are any indication.Live sucked, and 2K9 was one of the best sports games ever made.

I went to 7 stores for 2K9 and they all sold out. I was jonesing for a bball game so ended up getting Live09 which I still enjoyed. Played 2K9 at friend's place few times and loved it too and ya, probably will go for 2K10 if I can find it. I hadn't played video games for 1.5 yrs so I still thought Live was good...bball has just come SO far now. In fact, I'm starting to complain real bball games look crappy because the graphics aren't as good!

Shaq looked like he's in good shape and not carrying a lot of extra weight. That being said the Cleveland bigs rotation of Shaq, Ilgauskas and Verajao are painfully slow and teams are going to be able to exploit that.

Caron Butler was addicted to Mountain Dew and used to drink at least 6 of them a day. That's a lot of caffeine and it shouldn't be surprising that he went through withdrawal.Interesting fact, in Canada Mountain Dew doesn't contain caffeine as only dark soft drinks like Colas or Root Beer can have caffeine added to them.http://ca.sports.yah...?urn=nba,198240

Bargnani abused all the Cavs bigs tonight. First play of the game he blew by Sideshow Bob Varejao for a dunk and none of the them could stay with him outside.

Yeah I really hope we use the KG/Sheed lineup a ton in the future against those guys assuming Sheed does a decent job defending Shaq, because Shaq trying to defend either KG or Sheed would be hilarious.

Michael Beasley watch:Beasley got off to a good start last night going for 21pts on 9 of 14 from the floor in an easy Heat win (over the Knicks). He also did not do anything crazy. More to follow.

Speaking of the Knicks. They should be the worst team in the league this year and it's pretty disgusting what they are doing in the faint hope that they might sign Lebron next year.
