Now you have to play in those shitty, sateen Heat jerseys…
Good Read Round-Up:
Hardly a King by Michael Rosenberg
LeBron Sound-Off by William J. Simmons
The New Underdogs by Scott Carefoot
Easy Come, Easy Go by Adrian Wojnarowski
Neither Royal, Nor Loyal by Bill Plaschke
And one parting thought of my own on the last month:
This offseason, replete with the LeBron circus and Chris Bosh acting like he’s a top 20 player in the league, following a year in which multiple teams gave away players for pennies on the dollar to their competition, combined with the upcoming lockout after owners dumped egregious amounts of cash into HORRIBLE players (Amir Johnson, I’m looking at you), all in the shadow of a recent referee scandal that should have rocked the league to it’s core, has me just a little bit nervous that the NBA is circling the drain.
Everyone’s talking about it, but everyone talks about Lindsay Lohan too. I don’t think any of this has been good for the league.
I wasn’t much of a hockey fan, but I watched the NHL crush my brother and his love for the Toronto Maple Leafs. If the NBA tries to separate me from the Lakers, I’ll fight and scream.
I’m just worried no one will be listening.
