Last season, the Bucks seemed to be on cruise control going into the All Star break, seemingly able to get at least the 2 seed in the East with their talent. Instead, the team self implodes, and doesn't even make the playoffs. Fast forward one year. Instead of the Bucks, its the Pacers that are on cruise control, looking to have a pretty good chance of being the #1 seed in the East. They come out of the All Star break and lose 11 out of 12. Can the Pacers maintain this freefall long enough to actually drop out of the playoffs, and who will Isiah Thomas blame for this collapse (because, as we all know, Isiah has never done anything wrong in his entire life. Just ask him and he'll tell you that in detail (along with saying Larry Bird is only viewed as good because he's white).
I'll pay $49.95 for the Execute Bin Laden PPV. And I'll buy one of the lottery tickets at 10 bucks a pop to be the executioner.
On Thursday, the NBA released the starting lineups for the 58th annual All-Star Game (February 15, 2009 in Phoenix), and Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard set an all-time vote record with 3.1 million people voting him into the All-Star Game. Huh.
