NBA Fun Fact Of The Day!
Since Michael Jordan retired in January 1999, every NBA Finals has included either Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal or Tim Duncan, and every Finals has been represented in the West by either L.A., San Antonio or Dallas. Parity? I think not.
In the NBA, you've got NO shot at winning a title unless your best player is a top-5 superstar who's also a future Hall-of-Famer. Keep that in mind Memphis Grizzlies, as you continue to bridge your future on Zach "just got busted again" Randolph.

Ever since the Nuggets trip last week to New York, where Carmelo Anthony was asked about playing in Madison Square Garden, there has been a growing number of Nuggets fans wondering if the star forward would bolt Denver for New York.

"Realistically, I might not be able to play this year. …I might not be able to play the rest of the year," Martin told Yahoo! Sports. "That’s what I’m realistic about, that I might not be able to. It’s still up in the air. But, I’m going to do all I can to make sure. I’m going to put my best foot forward and work hard every day to make sure I get back, but if it’s not meant to be, then it’s out of my control.
