The NBA Is Fun Again

Predictably, the Lakers finally got the free-throw line on Tuesday night (why were they playing so soon, it's not July yet). The only thing is, fellas, if you are going to whine about not getting to the free-throw line, then you should make your shots when you get there. Kobe was horrible. Pao Gasol acted like he was playing for Memphis again. The Lakers are lucky to win a game the referees gave to them.

To kick it off: Celtics coach Lamar Latrell objects to a foul call.

adam, i have two major gripes with your headline:

1. The NBA is not fun.
2. The NBA has never been fun, so using the word "again," which implies that it was once fun, is clearly wrong.

love the new slogan on the header, though. i should use that for mine, too!
