    Among my other favorite players are Deron Williams-Nets, Danny Granger-Pacers, Tim Duncan, Ray Allen, it's actually quite a lengthy list.

    I'm a student of the game so there's a lot of guys I study and try to learn from.

    I have more interest in the daily bowel movements of the Vancouver Island Marmot and it's composition than I do of Basketball in general.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Oh yeah!

    I like D-Will, TD and Ray are some of my all time favs. I have a long list too. Wade is probably my current fav but I like tons of guys and what they bring to the table.

    I like CP too.

    I used to love watching the NBA. Then it stopped being a team game. Two years ago I tried watching some of the finals. I've seen 12 year olds play a better team game at the local Boys and Girls Club. The game is so catered to the superstars that it has lost all resemblance of the game Magic, Larry, Dr. J., and Kareem used to play. I don't care if they cancel the whole season. Basketball has become like baseball to me. If my favorite team makes the post-season I'll watch, otherwise, I don't really care.

    Whaaaaat? Think about it man...if they shut down the NBA season all those people spending money on that idiotic venture will have MORE to dump into the economy. Instead of stuffing the owners pockets and the players pockets they can buy health insurance, food, pay bills.

    Re: Do you care about the NBA Lockout?

    Its always amazed me how basketball stays as popular as it is...you have to be careful what you say about basketball because there are always those that put a racial component to it....to me basketball sucks and always has as a spectator sport...but then again I feel that way about baseball...give me boxing, martial arts, footbal and greco roman wresting anyday...Im for full contact...

    Overpaid athletes who play a schoolyard game for a living can't come to an agreement about how many millions is enough to continue playing said schoolyard game?

    No, I can't say that I'm worried.

    I can sympathize with much that you have to say. I think the best years of the NBA were the 70's and 80's. You had a wonderful blending of the basic fundamental team game - for lack of a better term - the White Game (think gene Hackman in HOOSIERS) and the more innovative individual artistry of the Black Game or the Playground game (think of the ABA at its craziest) . That blending produced the best basketball of all time.

    Then they changed the rules to encourage more dunking, allowed for the clear out which I hate - allowed players to carry the ball ad nauseam which discouraged passing and adopted two different rules of defense for superstars and everybody else.

    But I do like the playoffs and hope they work this thing out and get back on the court.
