Wow, you are so right.

And the interminable whistles and referee interference is what has always made me hate basketball.

I sure hope that doesn't happen to football, but it looks like we're already there.

We're on the 3rd page and not one person has even speculated that the article could have a "made up source". It makes for a good story, but I'm not buying it. I'm not saying people may be bummed that Wade isn't there, but they're not going to call out a guy who's a temporary fill in. I think it's bogus, JMHO.

I don't know about that. The NBA of old seemed a lot tougher than today. Both leagues have gotten softer.

I was speaking about the era before you were even born, grasshopper. When traveling was more than 1 step and palming the ball were ref favorites. In those days, players geared to avoid ALL contact at ANY price...........Hand checking of any sort was an immediate foul! During that period, there was the "3 for 2 rule," where the NBA allowed free throw shooters in the penalty to have 3 attempts to make 2 free throws. Sounds like today's schools where you can take tests over again until you pass them.

Remind me, Wade had surgery for the Saints game too, right? Or was it the Oakland game... maybe the Ravens? I forget.
