    What an embarrassment to the NBA. Is there a more inept Pro team.

    I'm stunned they can still get people into their building.

    Are you sure that those that are going are choosing to do so voluntarily?

    I really hope they beat the Sixers record. They'll probably sell out the last home game if they are sitting at 8 -73.

    Warriors are horrible. I'd rather have Brook Lopez and next year's No. 1 (John Wall).

    However, I love Stephen Curry.

    But it's far from a sure thing that they get that pick.

    Nets have some good building blocks in Lopez and (when healthy) Devin Harris. Chris Douglas-Roberts has turned into a nice surprise. Yi is an OK player, when healthy.

    The rest of the team is essentially a CBA team.

    They achieved a milestone of failure the other night when they managed to blow a double-digit lead and lose in the final minute at home to the nearly-equally-suckass Pistons.

    These leagues need to do a better job of vetting owners. Every time they've allowed someone to come in as an owner where the main motivation was using the team/arena/stadium as an anchor for a real estate development, it's been a disaster.

    Think Coyotes, Nets and others.

    They need owners who will make the team a priority.

    Add Tom Hicks x 2 to that mix: the failed GloryLand development in Arlington that never got built is in litigation, potentially holding up the Rangers sale; and the equally-failed Victory Park in Dallas that did get built but isn't drawing flies.

    Best thing about the Nets -- you can take a wide-eyed 9-year-old for 98 cents.

    Not entirely the leagues, but it's the owners who apparently doesn't give a shit about vetting potential owners and finding good ones. The owners, the NFL and MLB, IIRC, make the final call and vote on who gets to own a team. The leagues have to make sure the $$$ and other stuff are kosher and no legal hang-ups are holding it up (see Sam Zell and the Cubs).

    For every good one they reject, they bring in 2 fuckups. For some, it's just to add something to their financial portfolio and look glossy.

    That cheap? I've seen tickets on Stubhub for $3.

    Still, if you just want the kid to experience an NBA game, it's a good price, as long as you don't care who wins.
