NBA Wrap

Kobe Gets Screwed

After his elbow to Manu Ginobili of the Spurs, the league saw fit to suspend all-universe player Kobe Bryant for yesterday’s game against the Knicks (which they lost in a close one). Despite Mamba’s attempt for an appeal, the NBA ruled with an iron fist. It’s a shame that the league won’t make further moves to improve the Knicks, like, namely, throwing Isiah Thomas into a landfill somewhere near Newark.

Can Anybody Stop The Suns?

Apparently Kevin Garnett didn’t get the league-wide memo that the Suns are really good. KG and his Timberwolves stopped the Suns’ winning-streak. Garnett dropped 44 in the win and put a proverbial beat down on the Suns. Take that Nash.

All-Star Debacle! Say It Ain’t So!

As much as you may not like Mark Cuban, you have to admit that he never fails to entertain in some way, shape or form. In his blog today Cuban mentioned an interesting subplot for this year’s NBA All-Star game in Las Vegas. Is the city going to be able to handle the influx of that many people? I’ve been to Vegas during a seemingly lull-time of the year, during the week none the less, and it was still crazily busy. Would the city effectively shut down when one of the biggest party events of the year stops by town for a whole weekend? Just remember, Mark Cuban called it first.
