I could not care less about the NBA owners or players and I am not a basketball fan, but I have some interest in the current labor dispute because:
1. I always find labor disputes interesting
2. I feel for the arena workers, parking lot attendants, memorabilia vendors, etc.... who are out of...
Would any of you fellow BOTL's join in an NBA Weekley Wager? Basically the contest would run Mon-Sun with that weeks shipment going out the following Monday. The Vegas lines would be posted first thing that morning with the final line being posted by 7pm EST for that evenings games. Wagers would...

Thought I would start a thread to get some predictions going.
Though I'm a Celtics fan, I think that without KG and Powe there chances are sadly all but gone. So, I'm gonna have to go with the Cavs over the Lakers 4 games to 2.
and all the prima****indonnas?
Give me Hockey everyday!
Two weeks ago, hockey's buzz was about Sean Avery and his former relationship with actress Elisha Cuthbert, his narcissism, whether the league should suspend him and whether the Dallas...
Hey guys, I know it's not as popular as baseball and football, but I personally love fantasy basketball, so I figured I'd start up a league and see if anyone else here was interested. We can put a 5er each into the pot and maybe split it between top 3 (like others do in fantasy football), or...
Seems like there is someone talking about everything but basketball. So what's up, no hoops fans or what? Just thought Id try to get a little chatter going on the playoffs.
So sound off on your favorite team or the one you hate the most.
Series are as follows:
Detroit Pistons 2-0 over Orlando...
Alright so playoffs are here and for me nothing makes sports more fun than a little betting. Now usually when you place a bet the house is favored to win.. but for this competition the house is guaranteed to lose! Here are the rules:
1) List the final four teams
2) List the final two teams
Man, this is insane! Let's look at the recent moves:
C-Webb back to Warriors
Gasol to Lakers
Shaq to Suns
Now Kidd to Mavs?!?!?!
The West is crazy. My Warriors are 11 games above .500 and are barely hanging on to the 8th seed. After the All-Star break this is going to be intense.
I have not been a fan of the NBA latly, mainly because of the problems off court that my local team, the Indiana Pacers, have been having. With all of the strip club gun fights they seem to have lost the ability to put on a decent game even with Larry Bird in the office.
But last night I...
Shows you how much Kobe is running that franchise. He comes out and says trade me and all of a sudden the lakers start getting there act together. We will se if Kobe has really grown up, and can play with a guy that's on the same level as he is.
I'm pretty excited that the NBA season has finally started. I'm looking forward to my Mavs redeeming their piss poor end of the finals. Here's some food for thought:
1. It was great to see Miami get destroyed on opening night. My cheeks were sore from smiling so much. Wade's...
