Watch a high school or NCAA game, and then watch an NBA game. It's so different. Also, there are lots of funny events that go on in the NBA. For example, Cleveland managed to score the number one pick in 2003 right as the hometown hero Lebron was available in the draft. Portland and Seattle got the top two picks right as both franchises were rumored to be leaving. Kobe Bryant just happened to get sent to Los Angeles on draft day from Charlotte, god knows why. The trades that have occurred recently are strange. Why would Kevin Garnett get sent to Boston for nothing in return? Why did Memphis send Pau Gasol to LA for nothing? Look at this season's playoff series. How did Boston get taken to seven games by ATLANTA? Why did New Orleans take seven games to get beaten by San Antonio? Several times in the playoffs, one team hammers another one, then gets hammered two games in a row away from home? That is just bizarre. David Stern is a shady character, and it's high time he hit the road. His refusal to expand the NBA into Las Vegas shows he might know a little bit more about the corruption of pro sports than we are privy to know. It might be a matter of control rather than preserving the integrity of the game.
