Re: NBA thread 2012-13

That Rockets streak seems so random - no shame in forgetting it
To tie Houston they need to beat Toronto then the big game at Boston.

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur, Jarmila Wolfe.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze

Such a random streak by Houston. Is this the year the lost 1st round of playoffs?

I'm just going to say now...... I will STILL be surprised if Miami repeats this season.

Re: NBA thread 2012-13

I honestly don't care who wins the title this year. As long as it's not Dwight Howard and his Fakers.

I still love college basketball but I like NBA much more now than I used to. College to me, is a bit harder to follow through the season because you know which teams are supposed to be good and make deep runs in the tournament but March Madness is a big enough draw that I only really pay attention to my alma mater and then from February to the tournament. I think the rule making players go to college for just 1 year is sort of counter-productive. It makes good college teams hard to come by because everyone is looking to go to the NBA after just 1 season. If they make players go to college they should make it be for 2 years instead of just 1. That way kids can at least attain enough credits to earn an associates in they get a serious career ending injury and it make the recruiting a little less taxing each year. If they don't want to go to college they could just go overseas and play that seems to work for those that really just want to start making real money sooner.

Depends on the school. Some are better at retaining their players then others. The schools that are most successful have programs that encourage that.

I am thinking Michigan, Duke, North Carolina, Wake Forest are all good at retaining players.

But I agree that the ability to exit early is not great. 4 years in a major program gives you an oppurtunity to develop as a player and mature as a person. Though I can't blame the players when they are having that money thrown at them. For that, you can blame the NBA
