does anyone else notice that the nba is much more interesting off the court than anything that happens on the court?
you know, outside of lebron's game 5, yawn. but all the nasty off court stuff? terrible. but entertaining.
from kobe's eventual holdout, the horror stories from vegas, the hawks' embarrassing ownership issues, seattle having their team extorted out from their city, a continuous stream of player arrests, anucha browne sanders' testimony eviscerating isiah and stephon, the knicks hitting an all-time low and now, greg oden's microfracture surgery, the nba could not be any lower.
and i didn't even mention the tim donaghy ref scandal.
and the year's not even over yet. seriously, if you thought vegas was a mess, then consider that they've got the next all-star game coming up in new orleans.
the entire league - from players, refs, upper management, organizations, integrity to perceptions - is imploding before our eyes. what a horrible collapse it's been.
i can't wait for college hoops.
