Not far from where eager Wolves fans lamented a lockout, Wall Street bashers made their case, unaware of the Wolves' forced absence.

I watch shows on ancient aliens too sometimes, but then I switch back to the game... I wonder if the TV cameras and "scribes" will cover my Fantasy Baseball League's draft next March. We get about as many people as an "occupy whatever" protest does. Now, back to my show about ancient aliens and other really important things...

Sorry, but if you check out the poll results of the NBA you will see that this league has a serious problem. I wish I could suggest a fix and the only thing that would/will help is some kind of parity, but I am not going to go watch Bryant or James or anybody else who makes too damn much money pound on the rest of the league. I love basketball at all levels, but one. Guess?

A delicious skewering of the famous and less-so. Well done Mr Reusse.

celtics33 - they may have been one of the most ill informed posts I have ever read. Just cancel the contracts? That's why they are called contracts! No more millions? So what should they be paid? If the market dictates that salary that's what they earn. I love people like you who want to be the divine arbiters and dictate what everyone can do and what they are worth. Go back to watching your ancient aliens.

Hey cobretti - Celtics33 is correct. This league has become junk with overpaid players that can't add 2+2. They make millions of dollars, playing only a few mintues a game, and I bet can't even balance their check book. They are a selfish bunch that couldn't even beat the Europeans a few years back. Start over, get rid of all the contracts, and redraft.

What if the NBA cancelled the entire 2011-2012 season and no one even noticed??? The Golden Gopher men's basketball team should be fun to watch!

I almost fell out of my chair laughing so hard. Tangible things like ancient aliens? Tears are running down my face.
