    The fans could declare before the game who they wanted to win, too. If their declared team wins, they get a cheaper ticket.

    Also, I'd like to see a fight-to-death cage match between the mascots at halftime.

    Then, just like boxing, the teams would agree to evenly split the money before the game starts and would then go through the motions for the fans. There may even be hugging involved.

    I'm wondering if JJ should go play over in Europe / Turkey...or even the far east. The guy didn't play last season and he really could use some practice time. He hasn't played professionally for a very long time and I think a 30 game season overseas would be beneficial for his development....

    You have to wonder if he will even be the same after missing 2 years.

    I'm concerned that he isn't even taking a look over there. The FP article seems to close the door on his chances of joining up to play some meaningful minutes. I figured JJ would understand the ramifications of taking 2 years off....:stirthepot:

    Lot of things will change if we do actually miss the whole year. I think at this point most are still counting on a season.

    With the help of Arnie, he will be faster and stronger.

    I dont think he's even allowed to speak with Arnie during the lockout.

    He can't even buy frozen bananas without a letter to the league...

    I hope JJ doesn't get busted robbing a 7-11 because he is jonesing for one of Arnie's smoothies.

    He was living at his apartment.

    I guess he better get himself a new place. CP3 had to ask for special permission just so one of his friends working as a security guy at the Hornets can attend his wedding.

    I wonder if it's awkward.

    Jerebko might not be living at Arnie's house anymore. I'm not sure. He was a big part of the family. He was helping Arnie's wife walk the family dogs and going with Arnie to his daughter's volleyball games. It was a pretty cool story.

    Maybe they drew a line across the apartment floor to keep them apart.

    I think that every single show that I watched as a kid had one episode that revolved around that plot.

    The NBA has been my favorite sport for a while. I am a big sports fan and like to stay current on all sports, but especially the NBA. This is why I'm surprised to realize I am becoming disillusioned towards the league the more this lockout goes on.
