NBA considers soccer-style midseason tournament

According to Adam Silver, the commissioner of the NBA, the basketball league is considering introducing a mid-season tournament to spice things up. Silver said he’d like to make things more interesting for the fans and is talking about holding a soccer-style event such as the English FA Cup or League Cup. Silver spoke to the press recently down in Las Vegas, where the basketball summer league is being held.

He said the English Football Association (FA) holds a tournament each year in which all of the league’s teams participate in during the regular season. Some weeks the soccer divisions are put on hold while the teams compete in the cup tournament. The FA Cup is open to all types of soccer teams, even the non-professional clubs, while the League Cup is contested by England’s 92 pro outfits.

Le Bron James’ NBA All-Defensive Starting squad streak snapped at five years

Le Bron James of the Miami Heat may still arguably be the best basketball player on the planet, but his massive ego took a bit of a knock on June 2 when the All-Defensive Team was announced by the NBA and his name wasn’t on it. James was named to the first team every year between 2009 and 2013, but his streak has now been snapped at five consecutive seasons.

The top-10 defensive players in the league were voted on by 123 media members with each player earning two points for being named to the first team. Those named to the second squad received one point. When the voting was all said and done James had been named to the first team by 57 journalists. This was actually three first-team votes more than Serge Ibaka received and the same number that Andre Iguodala racked up, but while those two players made the team James didn’t since his overall point total was 134.

NBA owner now banned for life from chain of whorehouses

Things definitely haven’t been going too well for Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling lately. First he was banned for life by the NBA, fined $2.5 million and told he will be forced to sell the club. He has also found out he’s suffering from prostate cancer, and now to top things off, several brothels in the state of Nevada have also banned him for life.

According to Dennis Hof, he has banned Sterling from entering his Bunny Ranch brothel, which is located close to Carson City. But Hof didn’t stop there. He also banned him from transacting any business at half a dozen other establishments. Hof said a lot of NBA players head to the brothels to party and he’s banning Sterling out of respect to them.
