Some afternoon blogs

Mark Cuban is hiring, Stephon Marbury is talking about Starbury, the Christmas Day game will never ever ever change, and we’ve got some artwork of the league’s dictator/tyrant.

By Sam Rubenstein

Cube stretchMark Cuban is the new Ted Turner? Even when he was colorizng classic black and white films, Ted never created an image as disturbing as that picture of Cuban. If you’re looking to get rich, Mark is giving out jobs if you can get people to go to the movies on a much tighter marketing budget. If there’s a SLAM reader out there that gets this job, I’m willing to be your paid consultant.

Farlane creates an artistic representation of that timeless question: Is David Stern a tyrant or a dictator? Wait, isn’t that the same thing. Oh.

A Blazers fan asks, will you be mad if Bassy goes on to succeed in Boston? He’s in a great situation, so be ready to answer that very question.

Here’s someone that’s upset at LeBron for focusing too much on marketing himself with mega corporations and calling him a corporate lap dog.

The Mavs traded a 50 year old rarely-used point guard for maybe the best backup PG in the league, who finished off his season by scoring 40 against Jason Kidd. I’d say Dallas came out on top of this trade.

We’ve got a new poll up on the right side of slamonline. Me and Lang both forgot about Bonzi Wells. The only reason I’m mentioning that is because Sactown Royalty is wondering what the hell is going on with him. Honestly, I totally forgot he was even out there.

So, apparently Steph was given a mic during a Knicks summer league game and it led to some, uh, interesting statements. The names Ghandi and Malcolm X are part of the conversation.

Finally, the NBA has decided it doesn’t need to force the Miami-L.A. game on Christmas Day. Actually I’m lying. That’s exactly what they’re doing.

    cecil israel…no they don’t, it says they he burnt nj for forty. no mention of toronto.

    If he had burnt Toronto for 40, that wouldn’t be noteworthy.

    Thanks for the link, Sam. If I hadn’t have been so mean to Cuban in the playoffs, I might try for a cushy movie job.

    I can’t believe that the Pacers gave away Anthony Johnson like that. Now he’s gonna be a third string point AGAIN??!! After the year he strung together last year? He was the only dude on the Pacers that showed up night in and out.

    Even if he starts as third string, I bet he surprises lotsa Mavs fans. He’s a solid player. He’ll earn a good chunk of burn.
