Hangover Week Continued: The NBA’s improved image problem

June 3rd, 2009 by John Krolik

First of all: you’ve gotta love Obama going with his pick of the Lakers in 6. Remember the whole tussle about all of Obama’s Final Four picks being from swing states? Well, Obama just chose a team from California, as money-in-the bank of a state as there is, over Florida. That’s gotta be how he really feels. Although now I’m vaguely afraid Obama’s about to raise taxes in California by half, or give San Diego over to Mexico.

But anyways, I don’t believe I’m on-record about LeBron James stiffing the media. This is mainly because I wasn’t aware that it happened until after I wrote my original recap-I turned off the TV and stopped looking at the internet pretty much immediately after the buzzer sounded in Game 6. Here’s my post on the subject and some context for it over at SLAM. Have fun reading it.

Keep coming back, we will be going strong this off-season with move ideas, reporting on rumors, draft stuff, and assorted other offseason goodness. If you have other things you’d like to see this off-season, don’t hesitate to shoot me an email or put it in the comments.
