It appears that there is a rift among the NBA owners, and the NBA commissioner wants to sweep it under the carpet.
Plain old censorship.
It is ridiculous enough that players and owners can’t come up how to divide the pie the rest of us can’t even imagine. After it is divided among the participants. Not to speak of local businesses around the sites who now have to sit out this drought.
It is a dispute among the so-called small-market owners and the rest. Don’t these smo’s are hurting their markets even more by taking a such a hard stance?

There have been reports that Miami Heat Star LeBron James has been practicing with the Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary varsity football team.
With the NBA lockout dragging on, what else can you do with your time.
Is he considering a career change?

Dwayne Wade is still out and likely will be for the rest of the preseason.
Meanwhile LeBron James also suffered a hamstring injury in the CSKA Moscow game last week, with him missing the whole game next day in New Orleans. That left Chris Bosh as the only active member of the trio in that game, and the Heat lost it to the Hornets 90-76.
So one apparently is not enough. Bosh was, however, sitting out the 2nd and 4th period, played only 23 minutes. In the 3rd the Heat rallied with him from a 45-29 deficit to a 65-64 lead.
James was back in the Bobcats game Monday, better than ever: He scored 33 points, the highest so far by any player in this preseason. The Heat lost though, 102-96.
One can argue it is the preseason, but it so for the other teams, too. The trio has played together just below 200 seconds so far. If two of them are on the court, the Heat seem to advance well, but if only one is on the court, it is no different as it was for any of them in their respective previous teams.
After 3 minutes, 17 seconds, the Big Three were reduced to the Big Two, after Dwayne Wade pulled out with a strained right hamstring. He scored 2, while LeBron James and Chris Bosh scored 18 and 20 points, respectively, in last night’s 105-89 preseason opener win against Detroit.
Wade said, he might miss 2 weeks. Regular season opener is three weeks away.
A curse of LeBron? The Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said that LeBron will be talking ‘curse’ with him down south, until he does ‘right’ by Cleveland and Ohio.
Even if he does, the parking costs within comfortable distance most likely won’t go down from $30 (and up) back to $15 charged for Heat games at the AA in the past few years.
Just in time for the first preseason game tonight, several Fox regional sports channels have disappeared from the Dish Network lineup, including Fox Sports Florida and Sun Sports.
The channels disappeared after Dish refused what it said was a more than 50 percent price increase Fox demanded to carry the sports programming.
There are only two Heats’ preseason games that will be carried by non-Fox channels.
The dispute between Dish Network and Fox is the latest in a number of face-offs pitting TV content companies against cable and satellite providers. However, while other providers get some kind of agreement just in time, Dish has a reputation for dropping channels. Remember GOLTV two years ago? Dish has also temporarily dropped the National Geographic Channel. But Sports fans can probably live without NGC.
The are 19 Fox regional sports channels nationwide networks Dish Network is no longer carrying.

Perhaps to no one’s surprise, LeBron’s James popularity has dropped.
According to a CNBC report, the Q Scores company, which does this kind of popularity poll, views LeBron’s negative popularity at 39 percent, while his positive popularity is at 14 percent.
In January, his positive popularity was at 24 percent – a 41 percent drop since then. The negative popularity then was at 22 percent.
The average sports athlete’s popularity is about 15 percent positive and 24 percent negative.
The current negative figure places James on position # 6 among the most disliked sports celebrities, just behind Michael Vick, Tiger Woods, Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco and Kobe Bryant.
These polls are conducted on a national level. So I guess there are regional differences. I would assume there are worse around Cleveland and better in South Florida.
Does it matter? Probably not so much. The Heat are going into training camp now, and we will see how he and the other team mates work it out.
