THOUGHTS FROM THE SIDELINE - Mar 29, 2012

THOUGHTS FROM THE SIDELINE:
The old con was called the bait and switch...in that particular type of operation, a faked incident would be used to draw attention of your mark in a manner that they focus on the events that are transpiring and inadvertently taking their attentions off of the prize that you, the puppet master truly desire. All in all, at the end of the operation, the mark is left bewildered, not truly knowing or understanding what truly transpired....only that they have either lost a lot of money, or a prized possession. (adapted from Robert Beck's Big White Con, 1973)

Unfortunately, this is what I see having transpired in the US, over the course of the past week. The entire general population, or the fan base of the NBA has had their attentions on the looming trade deadline, which approached and passed this week. The whole city of Orlando, after having been taken for a wild ride on the whims of one Dwight Howard; who could not decide where his true passions lay. Changing his mind from desired destination to destination, and almost playing the hearts and minds of the Orlando loyalists, like a puppet.

At the end of the day, and after flirting like the school-girl that is admired by every athlete on campus, he decided to stay put. Home in Orlando, welcomed back into the awaiting arms of the city that adores him. Much like I addressed in a previous post, on the decline of NBA basketball an d the eager acceptance of a hurriedly assembled product like we have now. Much like the basketball starved fans at the end of the lockout, the fans of Orlando; threatened by the thought of losing their star child franchise player/ foundation, hurriedly welcomed him back to town. Not once looking at the fact that he was eagerly prepared to walk away from them and move on to greener pastures. Oh how easily are we conned, fooled and duped in this THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH.

The fact of the matter is this, the NBA, even in the face of the new CBA (collective bargaining agreement) have a type of review of fiscal ramifications and a veteran players trade refusal for players who have played a minimum number of years (like a right of first refusal) in the league. This provision like this and others, allows trades to be reviewed and if not in the best interests of the club in question or THE LEAGUE as a whole, can be denied and/or rejected by THE LEAGUE itself, and not just the player. This did not hinder the League from allowing a huge plethora of moves as the trade deadline approached last week. Derek Fisher shipped to the Rockets, where he refuses to sign with the new club, in lieu of Ramon Sessions who had his career fortunes skyrocket to the center of the universe. The entire affair with Chris Kaman and associated players playing a game similar to one played as a youth in kindergarten called musical chairs. In the face of this, there has also been coaching movement alongside the players' changing seats while in The Show.

the knick players who hadnt even been listening to mike d'antoni the past weeks (before his resignation) and with Woody (Mike Woodson) now manning the ship, he knows who can do what and who fits when and where they fit.
The new hire always wins his 1st few outings, as the players all wish to work their win into his good graces...being the defensive genius that he is, the KNICKS WILL DEFEND MUCH BETTER but
it is still a cancerous environment, melo is a selfish ball hog primadonna, amare is a dead man limping and cohorts baron davis and mike bibby, although once the epitome of the NBA Point Guard, have become relics, which by definition is a shadow of the past...soon to be forgotten
