NBA Startup

Hey, the NBA season is about to start. You know, the sport with only five possible outcomes.

How pathetic was this lockout? The same exact system exists as it did prior to the lockout. The only difference is the lowering from 57 percent to 50 percent of basketball related income goes to the players. Inevitably, that doesn’t matter. The stars will still get their huge paydays, while the rank-and-file players…don’t matter.

In my opinion, there will be three or four less teams by the time the next CBA is up for review. That’s big, because team owners aren’t going to take it in the shorts in order to allow franchises to fold. Neither are players going to go quietly, allowing the league to get rid of its least profitable franchises.

New Orleans and Charlotte are likely to go. Milwaukee and Minnesota are in trouble. The NBA isn’t that far from going where the league used to be in the mid 70’s.

Anyway, here’s our review of the startup:

The league is successful in getting its favorite teams out in the public view on Christmas Day, just as it always does. The league wants to have us associate the holiday with basketball.

Here’s our review of the NBA season and playoffs:

Miami, Chicago, LA Lakers, Dallas, Boston and the Knicks are the teams with legitimate shots to win the title. One of those teams will win the title.

Have a nice season!



About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
