This is how much the world craves basketball. Uploaded 6 days ago and already 2 million hits? It continues to be shameful that the NBA - its owners AND its players - can't get their act together and get this over with.
The only pure and decent thing is our appreciation of the sport (unless we're talking about the Lakers, of course). It never stops.
Nike always seems to know how to strike a nerve. I think I even appreciated LeBron for a second.
Just a second, though.

Well, gauntlet thrown down? We may lose the season here:
Drastic times, call for drastic measures
I feel like this deserves its own post
Greg Ostertag: 38 min 14 boards, 6 for 6 16 pts, 3 blks 1 stl, 0 TOs and defends Hakeem Olajuwon so that Dream scores only 16. Watching the game, what struck me was that Dream looked tired and got pushed to bad position when he got the ball. So, arguably the biggest game in Utah history to date, and Ostertag comes up big. If Utah loses that game, the Dream, Glide and Barkley Houston could easily win game 7. The game is known for Stockton being uber-clutch. I think Osterag's not getting the credit he deserves as well.
Like most here, I think of Ostertag as a flop. "If he'd been better, the Jazz would have won a title. BS. Ostertag was the Utah Luc Longley. You need a guy like that to complement your stars and clog the lane. Can we give some love here for Ostertag? The guy is the butt of many jokes, but watch that game sometime. Is it fair to say "if Ostertag had been much better than Luc Longley, Utah would have won a title?"
In 97 and 98 the Bulls had three HoFers in their prime, Utah had two. If Utah didn't make it, management is to blame. Or, more likely, nobody wanted to live in stuffy Morman-land Utah. Can't blame 'em, unless they ski (which most hoopsters don't because of the injury rate.)
