Atlantic Not So Attractive

Let's see how the East Coast media spins this one.

After the first month of the season, the New York Knicks and the New Jersey Nets are a combined 4-33.

What did LeBron James say in early November? Something about "[a] max contract doesn't mean more than winning."

That's great because the 30+ wins LeBron immediately brings to a team would propel these two NBA juggernauts to strongly compete with mediocrities such as Golden State or Minnesota.

Of course, LeBron didn't mention how important it was to play in a new arena in front of Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Then again, what good does Beyoncé do LeBron James? That is your boy's wife, fix your eyes on something else.

It's not happening New York, stick to buying baseball championships while you still can -- at least you're good at that.

Nets Futility

Congratulations to the New Jersey Nets for starting the 2009-2010 NBA season at 0-18, giving them the record for most consecutive losses to start a season. Keep your heads up Nets fans, all of the major free agents are knocking down the door.

Congratulations Z

Zydrunas Ilgauskas played in his 724th games for the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday, making him the all-time team leader in games played.

Often under-rated and battling injury, the two-time all-star exemplifies teamwork and class in a time when most athletes are worrying about their next max contract.
