    I think it's silly, but Shabazz agreed to a set of rules and he decided to break one of them. This also isn't the first instance where he's let his immaturity show. I assume the Twolves are just sending a message.

    This is true. However, I wouldn't be surprised if their ratings took a significant dip (assuming they're going to be as mediocre as predicted).

    EDIT* I think they'll make the playoffs easily if Kobe and Pau stay healthy.

    Never underestimate the millions of haters that will tune in just to watch the Lakers struggle. Love 'em or hate 'em, most basketball fans are passionate about the Lakers.

    Ahahaha good point. The recent "BeatLA.com" certainly backs that up. God, I want to strangle Robert Sarver.

    I'd argue that the main reason most haters are out there is because certain teams are so overly exposed, (Cowboys, Yankees, etc.). It's a cycle that will never end, the most accessible teams are the ones the casual fans will always jump on.

    There was a debate on the radio the other day about Sarver.. is he cheap, or is he just stupid? In the context of spending dead money on Josh Childress and now probably going to chase that with even more dead money on Beasley. Like $13million next year between the two of them.

    I think it has a lot to do with the financial backing of said organizations as well... You have to remember that the Cowboys, Lakers, and Yankees are owned by some of the richest (most repulsive) individuals in both sports and the business world as a whole, they are also in major sports markets and rarely hold back on any opportunity to expose the shit out their organizations. This of course is not to argue with the notion that society as a whole loves to see these organizations fail miserably.

    You're forgetting my beloved Fighting Irish. In the last decade we've fielded some pathetic squads yet every goddamn game was nationally televised. I love it, but I understand how the rest of the nation probably groans every time they're looking for a game on Saturday.

    Can we put the Patriots up there with the Cowboys on the hate-o-meter? The half dozen times a year I travel outside NE, I feel the wrath.

    Plus the Cowboys haven't been relevant in a good long while, I daresay.

    But this is the NBA thread so pardon the misdirection.

    Yeah, the Irish are relevant again on the field so they don't bother me as much. Red Sox fans annoy me still because all of the ones I know became fans after they won the World Series in 2004.

    EDIT* I have no problem with your kind though, Santa.

    And then there's this..

    http://rumorsandrants.com/2013/08/fl...-d-league.html

    Saunders had the following to say about Muhammad:

    In our league, you have to be disciplined and being “disciplined” is being able to adhere to whatever rules are given and you gotta abide by the rules. So that’s been disappointing. But when I talk to him, he’s either gonna learn the rules and learn to abide by things with the big boys or he’s gonna really quickly learn a geography class: where Des Moines is in the NBDL down in Iowa.

    I really hope this doesn't backfire and Shabazz shuts down before the season even starts, either way it's a shitty way to start. My Twolves have a storied history of horrible draft picks as it is, his depth is needed on this team.

    Excerpted from Bill Simmons' The Eagles' Greatest Hit:
    Alison Ellwood's epic documentary perfectly captures the rise and fall of a famous band



    http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/...s-greatest-hit

    Reason No. 13: The Rock-Basketball Connection

    We tackled this in April's Trade Value column (the Chris Bosh section), but let's go deeper. Successful NBA teams and successful rock bands need to avoid what Pat Riley calls the "Disease of More": when you make it big and suddenly everyone wants more money, more minutes, more songs, more shots, more credit, more everything. Unless talented people slide into the right roles, make each other better and stay happy in those roles, it's nearly impossible to keep chugging along.

    So when Henley explains the Eagles' breakup by saying, "We had driven ourselves really hard for almost a decade and we were just fried," you know it's more than that. Think of the '77 Eagles as the 2013 Heat and it makes more sense: Henley as LeBron (the alpha dog), Frey as Wade (the overqualified second banana), Felder as Bosh (the third banana, someone who knows he can't get as many touches as the top two guys), Walsh as Ray Allen (hired specialist, savvy veteran), and the Randy Meisner/Timothy B. Schmit spot as Mario Chalmers (happy to be there, needs to carry two songs per concert). Everyone below LeBron accepts that hierarchy in Miami — at least so far, anyway. But it didn't go as well for the Eagles. My favorite parts of these next four takes are in bold.

    Henley in Part One: "Glenn and I saw ourselves as the leaders of the band, but other people saw us as dictators. You just cannot have five leaders in a band, it just doesn't work. People have to do what they do best."

    Frey in Part Two (sorry, we're cheating): "A rock band is not a perfect democracy. It's more like a sports team. No one can do anything without the other guys, but everybody doesn't get to touch the ball all the time."

    Henley on the late-'70s Eagles: "The band at that point had begun to split up in factions … so much of the time it was Felder and Walsh against me and Glenn. And at that point even Glenn and I were beginning to have our differences. And it was tearing the band apart."

    Tao of Joe Walsh's take: "You work, work, work, work, you get up to a peak, and then, invariably, people head-butt, and whose band is it, and I'm in charge, and no you're not, and there you go."

    In four crisp paragraphs, we just covered the reasons why just about every successful rock band implodes (and some killer basketball teams, too). It's always the same beats, right? When Henley says, "It reached a point where we were just tired of each other. Tired of the hoopla, tired of touring, tired of pretty much everything. At that point songwriting was becoming very difficult," he easily could have been talking about 200 famous bands, as well as the 2003 Lakers, 1991 Pistons, 1976 Warriors, 1968 Sixers or 1989 Celtics.14 Tao of Joe Walsh sums it up best: "We were beat, and it was really affecting the foundational core, the soul of the band … we hit the wall." You gotta protect the soul of the band.

    I kind of loved that Simmons article.

    As far as Muhammad goes, the kid is already leaning towards Allen Iverson-level ego burnout. I loved him despite him on the UCLA team this year, but he really needs to reign his ego in to be able to be an effective player. He still has a lot to learn to be competitive in the NBA, and being a big-headed jerk about his raw talent is only going to hurt him. I always love seeing UCLA players do well (why I can support OKC the past few years) but he is a liability as he is right now.

    That's pretty disappointing and depressing. Maybe that's why he showed up a the beginning of last season looking out of shape. To add to his misery, it doesn't sound like he's going to be picked up by any team next season.

    Suns trade Caron Butler to the Bucks for PG Ish Smith (?) and Center Slava Kravstov (?).

    The move frees up $8 mil in cap space which will allow us to waive Beasley.

    Its crazy that all this came from nowhere; I watched him play for the clips 3 months ago. Usually athletes are in hyper-control mode of their bodies and this doesn't happen. Especially in basketball or maybe its just not covered as much. I think its the latter
