Deck of 52: NBA Basketball's Most Wanted Enemies: Including favorites such as Ticket Prices, Flopping (are you listening Divac?), Dumb Tattoos, the NBA TV Package, and my least favorite thing about basketball: Steve Javie.

Steve Javie licks dog testicles. Seriously. The NFL has one thing going for it that the NBA does not. The Referees don't stand out in the game, they let the players determine the outcome. Where did the League get Javie anyway? Oh yeah...

Serioiusly, could they make that a bigger pain in the ass to navigate through? Are they so hard up for text-ad and pop-up revenue (I lurve Mozilla) that they need to put each one on a different page? Great idea, horrible execution. And the Young Ones! Yay!

It is a pain to navigate but pretty cool nonetheless. I am in total concurrence with the 82 game schedule complaint. Jesus H. Christ how many games do you need in the regular season? It is always about the playoffs anyway. I'm off to read the rest, thanks for the post dusted.

Excellent find ... although it would be nice if more than one card was on each page. I liked the 'Nique vs. Jordan references ... as a kid I was 'Nique fan.

Steve Javie deserves 'Sheeds spot in the kings, and I hate the Lakers. 'Sheed still deserves to be on the list, but nowhere near that high. Ticket prices and the TV package should move up a lot higher. These guys seem to be a bit preoccupied with the morality of the players. I could really care less if they're moral as long as their off the court antics don't interfere with their job. (Said like a true Blazers fan...)

Yea, and certainly they could have found something to loathe more than Dan Dickau!

Oh, shocking! Steve Javie officiates a game and someone gets ejected (scroll to the bottom). I think I'm going to start a blog that keeps track of of the Javie Tech, Eject and Smirk Count.

Wow, what a smug asshole that writer is. He obscures his half-dozen really good points with a bunch of aging whitebread, middle-class whining. Definitely not playing with a full deck. (And the navigation sucked...)
