Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Monday, April 26, 2010

I swear, I'm going to have to make up those "Proud member of the Women's Basketball Intelligentsia" t-shirts. And send one to David Stern.

This gem from Clay Kallam's trip to the gym:
So I'm pedaling away on the exercise bike, idly watching Jim Rome talk to David Stern, and the topic turns to the economic issues facing the NBA. Stern talks about cuts have to be made, and Rome goes right after the WNBA.

Stern laughs and says "The WNBA is the least expensive of our luxuries -- in fact, we make a little money on the WNBA."

Rome wants none of it, and presses a little, hoping to get Stern to admit the W is something of a burden, but Stern isn't buying. He says "Thanks for the platform," and delivers some WNBA propaganda.
