I promise this will be the last I talk about the NBA. The dreadful season is over . Whether these guys embarass themselves at the Olympics remains to be seen.
Just Ball Reports
"The NBA is rapidly turning into a national criminals' association: A whopping 40 percent of NBA players have police records, a bombshell new book charges. That and this report from The The
Jeff Benedict, "Out of Bounds: Inside the NBA's Culture of Rape, Violence & Crime"
A" bombshell" new book ? Are we just waking up?
Lets take a guess at a few other NBA stats:
Percentage of college grads: I'd say 20% tops
Percent of players untradeable: At least 30%(because the don't play up to performance expectations)
Percentage of stars "demanding to be traded " Seems we hear about this a few times a week, Vince Carter being the latest.
Percentage of players declining Olympic invites: Roughly half.
League's "next Jordan : On trial for rape
Number of illegitimate children: I beleive Calvin Murphy
is league MVP in this area with 14 kids with 9 woman. Ther are 350 players my best guess 400 to 500.
Chauffeur Murdered : "Just"one
I think the understatement regarding all this belongs to Charles Barkley "I am not your role model" Lets make Charles the league Rep. The league is a cesspool and God forbid anyone really speaks up. Then they get to be racists........
BTW, These guys average about 5 million a year, the stars way more, with the quality of effort and play questionable.Questionable, I am being kind.
When you buy a ticket, you support this...

"I hope to not just laugh, but to laugh uncontrollably. I hope to not just cry, but to wail deeply. I hope to not just find the elusive "alone together" place within, but to hold, and be held in it. I hope my refection on the lake dissipates and I can see into the waters."
