In the NBA, the Internet is a muck with rumors that the league is considering adding a 4-point line! It’s an interesting idea and you can imagine players launching super deep shots to get their team back in the game. While some may think that would make the game look a little silly, and completely alter the strategy, others view it as just another exciting element to watch. The League, however, has tried to squash these rumors, saying that they aren’t truly considering it. Plus, there hasn’t exactly been an outcry from fans that the game is “missing” a 4-point line. Perhaps this is just internet chatter that every single talk show jumped on yesterday.
Elsewhere in the NBA, the Philadelphia 76ers have bought out former Pacers star Danny Granger’s contract forcing a once promising all-star to now look for a job. There is news that he is being actively pursued by the Clippers and the Suns, however, many are wondering why Granger isn’t being courted by the Heat — given that he would provide athleticism and give the Heat some inside tips on their only main foe of the post season: The Pacers. It will be interesting to see where Granger winds up.
And the controversial news of the day was in Arizona where Arizona is potentially working on a bill that would give all Arizona store owners the right to refuse service to anyone — namely homosexuals. The NFL has stepped in and said that if Arizona tries to pass this law, the league will not grant them the Super Bowl next year. With all the positive media attention surrounding openly gay football player Michael Sam, it’s hard to imagine a situation where he’d be in state where business could deny him service. It will be interesting to see what move Arizona makes.No comments
