Related to Howard's link to the death of Ken Sailors: I was thinking the other day that the set shot needs to come back. If you make it inside the three point arc, it should count for three points. If you make it outside of the three point arc, it should count as four points. I mean, come on! The set shot! Bring it back.

TIL: the 1972 Pittsburgh Pirates were a perfect 75-0 when leading a game after seven innings. Ironically enough, their season ended after the Reds came from behind after the seventh inning to win the game, 3-2.

I love that so late in the season, a couple of catastrophic weeks by the leaders combined with great weeks by me could see me win this thing. I highly doubt that this will occur, but I'm only 11 points behind the leaders. Man, I had some terrible weeks. Man.

I don't see how You're a mother------- f----t. ... You're a f------ f----t, Billy. is *not* hate speech whether Rondo knew that about the ref or not. I mean, that's a rather vicious statement that is usually followed by a couple of punches to the jaw.

posted by NoMich at 02:15 PM on December 15

SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle

Does that really matter, though? How is this any different if, say, Kevin Love dropped a number of n-bombs on the same ref? A hateful statement is a hateful statement. Then there's the issue of undermining the ref's authority on the court by not only dropping hateful statements on him but also by showing him up and taking his sweet time getting off the court after being ejected. And it took the league a week to hand down this one game suspension?

posted by NoMich at 09:18 AM on December 15

Wow. A one game suspension? Right when I think that maybe I could start interested in the NBA again, the NBA sends a message that they're kinda alright with this type of thing. Oh well, the Pistons are probably not making the playoffs again anyway.
