Well Stern rigged the whole ****ing season and future for the 16-TIME NBA CHAMPION LOS ANGELES LAKERS...so who knows.
oh, please. Look back at the trade that was vetoed compared to the trade they made. The second trade is clearly superior. Stern seems pretty vindicated to me on his claim that he vetoed the Lakers trade because it wasn't a good enough deal. Sure, the way it went down was really shady but that's the inherent problem with the league owning a team. It creates compromising situations and the inherent appearance of impropriety.I'm sure the Lakers will end up getting New Jersey to panic-trade D-Williams for Gasol or something, don't worry too much.

Lopsided, awful trades are made all the time. The notion that Stern is vindicated is dumb. He ****ed up and everyone knows it.Swag has got to be the worst ****ing word ever. It's so absurd, worse than stupid ****ing frameless glasses. All these millionaire NBA players perfectly embody what a hipster is.

I really couldn't care less what they wear.Thunder's defense was pretty great last night. Funny how that happens when you play Ibaka and Thabo instead of Perkins and Fisher. San Antonio looked a little flustered on offense and had some bad turnovers. I think they'll be better tomorrow, but it will be a close game. According to LeBatard, a "high ranking Miami official" says that the Spurs don't scare them because Boston is better. Which is so absurd it hurts me. His reasoning was Garnett > Duncan, Rondo > Parker, Pierce > Manu, Allen > Spurs 3 pt shooters, Boston defense > Spurs defense. I guess if you're Miami you look at teams that way. All individual pieces. Not to mention that he's wrong about some of those comparisons anyway.

I can guarantee Pat Riley does not look at teams that way. Miami defends the pick and roll as well as anybody in the last decade so they have a great shot against San Antonio (especially if they stick Lebron on Parker as often as possible) but I think most credible basketball people know SA is the favorite. 34-4 is what it is.There are a lot of "high-ranking Miami officials" who are just related to owner Mickey Arison including his son. I bet it's one of them.

I don't really think the Spurs are a pick-and-roll team. That's part of their offense, but there's a lot more movement and off the ball screens. The Heat defend the pick-and-roll by going hard at the ball-handler because he's usually the biggest threat (like Derrick Rose), but if the Spurs can hit Duncan or Diaw rolling, they are very good passers with several options. I think a Spurs-Heat match-up would be fascinating while a Thunder-Heat match-up would be all about star power and athleticism. Which would be a different kind of fascinating. Either way, it should be a really fun Finals.

This is absolutely where I am. I don't care, and wouldn't notice, if ESPN wasn't always shouting "Look at Wade's pink pants!"

I should probably clarify, even at the risk of you unliking my post...I do like seeing what they're wearing. Mostly to get a chuckle or two. "Look at Lebron's tiny purse!" But it just doesn't upset me in any way.

Lebron and Wade went from 35 FTAs in Game 2 to 5 total in Game 3 including zero for Wade (which I'm sure happens approximately never). Whine and ye shall receive apparently.

Their mean is a lot higher than 5. It's just human nature; Boston complains loudly and they get a game of favorable whistles. I've seen it happen so many times. I just hope Boston's shooting regresses to the mean soon.

They complained after the first game, and Lebron and Wade shot 35 FT's combined.
