NBA Trash Talk: Volume III

Hi, all. What a week it’s been. The Sonics continued their impressive run, Hubie stepped down and several squads debuted new alternate uniforms. Who am I kidding? Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight. It would take little short of another Michael Jordan comeback to divert the focus from what has now wittily been termed the Malice at the Palace. Hell, Michael Jackson could have signed with the Clippers and it would have been second-string news. I hope David Stern recognises how ironic it is that this whole affair has gained the NBA hundreds of extra hours of television time over the last seven days. In a culture where all publicity is good publicity, I imagine that considerably more fans than usual have tuned in to catch a basketball game this week.
