When it comes to acceptance of gay players, the NHL is already way ahead of the NBA.
The NBA for the most part has managed to avoid the major performance-enhancing drug scandals that have plagued the NFL and Major League Baseball over the last decade. Commissioner David Stern is hoping to keep it that way.
Whatever the answer to any of those questions may be, one thing is apparent—the league’s dress code is complete bull.
Billy Hunter is being placed on an indefinite leave as executive director of the NBA players association, following a report that was critical of his leadership and urged players to consider his future with the organization.
So, yeah, our fearless leaders all suck. And while what Tagliabue did gives us a sliver of hope that they can’t be megalomaniacs in their fields all the time, ultimately fans have to sit back and shake their heads.
NBA commissioner David Stern will retire on Feb. 1, 2014, the league said Thursday.
Two weeks ago, an interview between CBS Sports’ Jim Rome and NBA commissioner David Stern turned ugly after Rome asked Stern if the NBA Draft lottery was fixed.
Since 1985, it’s the league’s preferred way of dispensing its top picks, but these days the system – designed to launch basketball careers – instead spawns more conspiracy theories than Area 51.
NBA Commission David Stern joined The Jim Rome Show on CBS and was asked by Rome if there was any tampering with the lottery.
Del Negro was a curious choice from the outset in Chicago, where he believed a warmed-over Jim Valvano impersonation constituted coaching.

While most basketball fans simply can’t wait for Christmas Day to get their NBA fix, one politician isn’t as thrilled.
Don’t blame the owners for the lack of professional basketball in the middle of November. Don’t blame the players for nixing the latest offer earlier this week, thus extending the delay until at least mid-December, and quite possibly, until the 2012-13 season.
The NBA lockout has effectively whipped out more than a month and a half of the season, and Tuesday, the players experienced what it really feels like to be unemployed.
The NBA Player’s Association’s decision to reject the NBA’s latest offer and disband as a union could spell the end of any hope for a basketball season in 2011-12.
The NBA players have rejected the league’s latest offer and are beginning the process to disband the union.
Joined by superstars such as Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony, player representatives from NBA teams are meeting to discuss the league’s proposal for a new labor deal.
If any of you have followed me on the station, or Facebook or Twitter you know that I am a die hard hoops junkie. All levels of the sport are cool but the ultimate for me is the NBA and I have been going crazy without it during this prolonged lockout.
As it seems more and more likely the players will not take the owners’ recent 50-50 revenue split, the likelihood of there being a season will continue to drop, but that doesn’t mean the ball will stop bouncing for LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and others.
