    Small markets actually do okay in the NFL.

    The NBA is an international game. Half of Europe and China are Lakers fans.
    I saw more Lakers stuff in Spain a couple years ago than I could have thought possible. It seemed like every little kid I saw had a Koby jersey.
    The Grizzlies were known in Barcelona but only because of the Gasol brothers.

    Look at the population of China. The Lakers have a massive following their. It is all about $$$.

    The Spurs, Kings, Grizz and others have little to no national, much less international appeal.

    ^ yep

    Even when Yao Ming was still in the NBA, the number 1 selling jersey in China was Kobe's.

    You live and die by Kobe's chucking. I can tell you this, switch Kobe and LeBron and there's no way the Lakers are fighting for an 8th lol.

    Dude, stopped complaining about DH12 already, if Stern didn't personally gift-wrap him for you, your starting center would have been Robert Sacre lol.

    Need something to follow until Football season starts. And I ain't into golf or stock car racing. Baseball will have to do.

    Baseball is stupid.

    Can we start a thread about how awful baseball is and how angry baseball junkies get when you remind them how awful it is?

    So I just watched it.. not surprising. The whole league is pathetic. Their refs have been dirty for decades.
