    It reminds me of going to a Broadway show and having an understudy in the lead roles.

    Re: 2012-2013 NBA Season

    I was in high school and spent my allowance money on a Royals ticket to see them play the then-mighty Lakers of Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor, and Jerry West.

    None of the three played. A guard by the named of Dick Garrett lit them up like a Christmas tree and had like 20 points by the half. So when you buy a ticket, you never know who you're going to see.

    I think its crap that Stern fined Popovich and I hope Pop appeals it (to who, I have no idea). When the commisioner can tell a team who they have to play, well, then the terrorists have won.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    That's the old New Orleans ABA team, the Hornets actually were the WFL teams name when I lived in Charlotte, that name goes deeper than just the NBA

    I'm pro Lakers going back to Minnesota myself

    The New Orleans ABA team was the Buccaneers. WFL. Shoot, that's going way back to the days of Jim Kiick.

    L.A Lakers makes no sense, either.

    Actually, the expansion NBA Hornets were originally to be named the "Spirit".

    I was thinking the Hornets could just use the Buccaneers name as I really like those throwback uni's, but then I realized it would often be shortened to Bucs which would get confusing with the Milwaukee Bucks around.

    Pelicans was the name of their minor league baseball teams for decades.

    Lakers are Minnesota's loss

    And duh so right on the original ABA NO team, there's a current semi pro league that has that moniker

    Louisiana is the Pelican State. So it makes sense.

    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Myself, I'd rather see them buy out Utah for the Jazz naming rights. Makes even less sense for Utah to be called the Jazz when you consider the Mormon following. (Think back to Baseketball for this reference)
