The NBA just banned noted racist Daniel Sterling for life. Magic Johnson, who owns the Dodgers with an investment group, has come forward to express an interest to buy the Clippers. Getting Sterling out would be great for the team, and for the NBA on the whole. Most importantly, if Sterling agrees to sell, they won’t have to deal with the huge legal obstacle of essentially forbidding him power over the team, which is lawfully owned by him. Heck, if they don’t want Magic… I’ll do it. I can execute a promissory note to disburse the purchase price over the next few decades from the revenue of the team- sort of a lease to own situation. Or if they like, we can set up a public entity- Green Bay Packers style. What could be better to erase the last regime than to let the people buy the team! NBA… give me a call if you want to take me up on it!
UPDATE: I’ve got competition from Frankie Muniz (Malcolm on Malcolm in the Middle). Frankie, let’s team up! Together we can get the team!
I love Bryce Harper’s hustle, grit, etc. etc. etc…. Blah blah blah… Don’t slide into first. Harper is going to have to have surgery on his thumb, and may be out into July. Yasiel Puig hurt his thumb sliding into first the other day. While a slightly better chance of beating out a single might justify a minute injury risk… there is no benefit from sliding into first. Since you can run through the bag, no time is gained by the slide. Not only might it decrease your time, the injury risk is significant.
I better not see any of my Reds trying to pull this. Mark it down, sliding into first is done. Over.
I’ve been having fun with my primary blog, Crimcourts, which deals with legal and criminal law related stuffs, but I am constrained by the subject matter. So… welcome to my other blog, where I’ll deal with whatever I feel like… Cincinnati sports, to random thoughts, to the virtues of Mountain Dew. I hope to have some fun with it- come back and visit!
Be sure to follow my primary blog, crimcourts.wordpress.com for regular, legal-related posts!
