The new commish has his first controversial decision already.
    Youre just supporting my point though....it's BEEN known before....and it's not like people stopped supporting the clippers because of the players etc.
    Why didn't the NBA take action 2 years ago when this came out? Or the years before that? Whatever though, I guess it doesn't matter....just kinda bothered me that it took a "last straw" type situation I guess.

    On Yahoo today, there was something about Magic Johnson wanting to buy the Clippers....that'd actually be pretty awesome.

    The league clearly ignored it.

    Dezz must associate with some fairweather baseball fans or something....where he feels the need to defend everything.

    I only personally know one individual who has made a big deal about this whole thing, and he's a guy who just claims to be a sox fan, but i bet couldnt tell you anyone on the team other than Ortiz and Pedroia....

    Is that a subliminal shot at MH?

    No Dez....he was actually making an intelligent comment.
    You may want to take a step back from this and look at it a little less defensively.

    MH isn't the one making a big deal of it, dude....
    You should probably just stop caring...Pineda got busted cuz he wasn't smart enough to use the gunk the same way everyone else does....so yea, the suspension is for the stupidity, not for using tar, imo lol.
    MH isn't harping on it because he knows the deal with pitchers, as do I....he's just taking shots at Pineda because he ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer(And rightfully so lol)
