    The 2013-2014 schedule has been released!


    The clichedness of having the Lakers once again play on Christmas aside, why is it that the Lakers will travel to Houston twice before the Rockets play a game out here (February)? Meh! :p At least the tradition of plentiful Sunday home games at the beginning of the season remains intact: 6 weeks in row, from November 3rd to December 8th. I may heavily dislike their Sunday alternate uni's, but ending week with a game is always niiiiiiiiice.

    LeBron got jury duty. Chances he takes half an hour to announce the verdict and airs it on ESPN?

    Or that he already made his decision on the case years prior in secret?

    Or that when he gets patted down, the bailiff gets called for a foul?

    Good ol' Lebron hate. It's so cute. It never gets old.

    The name is indeed great, but that pinwheel logo of theirs... damn, I can't begin to positively describe that enough.


    Speaking of NBA name & uni related things, these two pieces:

    Uni Watch NBA rankings

    The Lakers having those terrible Sunday white alternates ought to have knocked them out of the top 5, no matter how iconic the rest of the uni's are. And speaking of Laker uni's...


    Lakers set to wear short sleeve uni's next season

    no, No, NO! Ahhhhhhh. :p And of course they'll be molded into those terrible white alternates (worn primarily on Sunday home games), which makes this into more of a uni sin (I'd be willing to accept this short sleeved idea (maybe) if they were at least yellow or purple). I may just follow Sunday home games via radio for next season.

    McGrady retires

    I had an argument earlier today with someone, over Tracy's HOF potential... I say he's borderline, and if I had a vote, I wouldn't vote him in. Of course, that's under the current system. Say the HOF were structured as Simmons would like (it really is a bloody good idea), then I'd vote Tracy in as a level 1 HOF'er... he's the perfect player to fall into that category.



    Something is wrong with Lamar Odom

    I hope that this doesn't get worse for him, and that he gets to a better place before completely hitting rock bottom. Terrible to hear about, considering the all that he's been through already.

    For many years, a lot of fans have been petitioning the Lakers for an official (since these type of jerseys were available to buy, but never worn in a game) black themed alternate uni. Well, it has happened!:

    I think they look great. :D These ought to be the Sunday alternates.

    That's a sharp looking uni right there! I'm not a Laker fan, but that is good stuff right there!

    76ers have begun training hard... and by "training hard" I mean they forced Royce White to fly across the Atlantic Ocean.

    Welcome to the NBA preseason, where everything's made up and the points don't matter.

    Magic no longer a part of ESPN's NBA Countdown... perhaps because of Simmons?


    Obviously who the hell knows if this ends up to be true, and of course each of them (on Twitter) spin a different story:


    Bill Simmons@BillSimmons
    My first experience today with someone writing a "sources" report about me that's not true. Part amusing, part horrifying.


    Earvin Magic Johnson@MagicJohnson
    ...Bill Simmons is smart, talented and knows his basketball & Jalen Rose is an emerging TV star who really knows the game! .

    He says he feels more explosive than before the injury, which (obviously) bodes well for Chicago, and should put a fright in the other Eastern contenders (not named Miami).

    I hope Rose has the second best season of anyone in the NBA who appeared in zero games last season ...
