Friday night marking the Seattle SuperSonics helping the Cleveland Cavaliers to become the holder of the best record in the Eastern Conference? Bigger bummer.

"Dooling was suspended five games, costing him $172,000 in game paychecks. Allen was suspended for three games and lost $441,000. Dooling received the harsher punishment. After the two were ejected, he tried to go after Allen in the locker-room area until being restrained by security.
Since the incident, Dooling and Allen have apologized to one other, meeting before the Sonics faced the Magic in Orlando on Nov. 8."
From the sound of that, I'm betting they'd both wished they'd laid off the fisticuffs that day. :/

Our guys had some nice stats, too. Ray Allen had 30 and Rashard Lewis had 28. But the ultimate one (Lakers 118, SuperSonics 112) -- not so nice.
Still, I'd have to concede that ticket-holders got their money's worth of pro basketball on this one. And the season is just barely started.

The new owners, Clay Bennett and a group of investors, are from Oklahoma City. That's significant because Oklahoma City has had a taste of NBA basketball that started when the New Orleans Hornets were blown out of their home by Hurricane Katrina. Oklahomans seem to be hooked -- tickets to the Hornets games at Ford Center sold out 24 times last season. Average attendance was over 18,000 per game...compared to 16,199 per game in Seattle's KeyArena.
Bennett has said he'll do all he can to keep the SuperSonics at least in the vicinity of Seattle. But when the Hornets go back to New Orleans next season, what then?

Hinrich ended up with 11 points to Collison's 12, but the Bulls pulled the game out in OT, 110-105. Pretty darn close, and that's how most fans in Allen Fieldhouse wanted it.

The turnaround in the NBA Finals this year just blew me away! Rooting for the underdog is a particular hobby of mine, and to see the Dallas Mavericks perform with such heart (particularly the young Devin Harris) only to fall at the end in such a fashion was heartbreaking. I found some of the calls against

Well the Seattle Supersonics landed the tenth pick in the NBA Draft lottery. Also we have resigned Detlef Schrempf, the assistant coach we brought on in the middle of the season. I am not sure who I am cheering for in the NBA Playoffs. I would like to see the Dallas Mavericks win because they never have bu it is hard not to like the Suns for what Steve Nash has done with them.

The LA Lakers are up one game over the Phoenix Suns, yet I doubt they will win the series. I have said all season that the Lakers would go out in the first round if they made it at all. I am looking forward to watching the Dallas Mavericks beat the San Antonio Spurs this year. In previous years they have feared the Spurs but I see the Mavericks walking all over them this time around.

Rashard Lewis was given a one year suspended sentence for reckless driving and failing sobriety tests. Why is it that famous people and athletes get a slap on the wrists when the rest of us get nailed to the wall for breaking the law? It is a double standard that needs to be addressed because it sends the wrong message to young and impressionable people. Why abide by society’s rules if the people we look up to don’t have too?
