At this rate there isn't going to be a 2011-2012 NBA season.

Critterton charged with murder.

Georgia judge frees Crittenton on bond in murder case | NBA.com

Glad he's the Bobcats' problem now.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

I like how they had that picture of Stern and Billy Hunter sitting next to each other smiling on the front page of ESPN. What are they smiling about? They lost almost a quarter of a season, and it looks like they're acting like nothing bad happened as a result of how long it took. What about all the people that lost income as a result of no NBA games being played? And I'm not talking about the players or the owners either.

Really. The NBA is pretty much weaksauce at this point. Who would even miss it if they canceled the season? During the regular season, it's players half assing it during games, not giving it their all, and getting max contracts for being above average players. (too many to list)


Also, I still believe the NBA rigs games via their officiating. I believe Donaghy when he said the refs were told, in that 2002 Sacremento/Lakers playoff series, to make it go to a game 7. It's a sham and just watching the games you can tell it. The stars get all the favorable calls, they do "make up" calls and sometimes just don't even bother officiating. It's horrible and a horrible product. I'll stick with college basketball.

Huge waste. Everyone looks bad. Stars keep their ability to force their way out of small markets and in exchange the owners owe less money overall with the rate dropping to around 50% after previously being 57%. Already the talk has started to pick up about not if, but when Howard will go to LA and CP3 will go to New York.

Mid level exception deals are still around for teams over the cap, extend and trade, sign and trade. Basically everything that puts the NBA at risk for being a competitive joke is still around. And apparently the new luxury tax is not going to go into effect for another two years. This deal does nothing to improve competitive balance in the worst competitive team sport in the country.

Re: Washington Wizards 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

What's interesting here, at least to me, is that the Hornets are currently owned by the league

Meanwhile Clips get Caron, Knicks reportedly getting Tyson Chandler. A couple of solid moves there

Yeah... the Knicks found their interior defense, which can cover Amare's deficiencies on that end of the court. Sick move.

Battier to the Heat is sorta flying under the radar, with these big name moves. I actually think the Heat have stamped themselves another Finals appearance with this pickup.
