    for all i know... if the lakers/clippers win the chip next year... you'd probably end up buying a jersey because of the awesome experience associated with it... even if the sponsor patch is from Fleshlight.

    Sorry but you'd be wrong. The Lakers won 5 championships in the past 13 years and the only jersey I have is the Kobe #8 jersey from a year that they didn't even win and that was it still made by Champion (also got black MJ Bulls jersey and a bunch of other ones). The only other jersey I've bought recently are the Dream Team Kobes and Barkleys that came out 2 days ago and I really do not see buying any other jerseys anytime soon whether the Clips or Lakers wins a chip 5 times in a row. I'd only buy a current jersey this year if it were signed and really if it has a ad patch, I'll just buy an old one w/o a patch on ebay or something.

    so just catching up to a few free agent situations. Philly let go of Elton Brand and Lou Williams????? And took in Kwame Brown :uhoh: Williams is a bonafide scorer and Brand has a very nice if limited, old school low post game. So far, it looks like the winners are Miami and LA, where Howard goes to next could change that though. I think Chicago and OKC could find themselves in a situation where they are good enough to get to the Finals, but not be able to get over the hump. Next year in particular could be a tough year for OKC if they don't get to the Finals again, which is what the expectations are. I am really liking the young Houston lineup (Royce White/Lamb/Lin/Martin/Asik and Donatas), they'll be exciting to watch and may notch 40 wins or so. I can't believe I am getting excited about the Houston Rockets lineup, :fu: DOLAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    He actually looked really good in summer league and it might work for the clips, he can stretch the defense if he plays the way he has. Also, the guy is busting his hump to be in the league, I always root for people like that.

    I've been away from TV and internet for a few days and Dwight still hasn't been traded??? Last week, every sports reporter kept claiming Howard deal "imminent. I hate how sports media operates. Everything for a page view.

    Well Dwight and his agents are to blame for that. Just last week Dwight said he would re-sign with the Lakers so it seemed like the deal is moving forward but then later that day his agent said Howard won't resign with any team and test out the FA next summer. So really, Dwight is just trying to piss everyone off at this point. I'd really rather see this fool just play abroad.

    I hate all NBA jerseys because they're made out of that nasty polyester.

    But especially the purple and gold ones.

    Especially Metta World War.
