Another Sign That the NBA is Becoming Irrelevant?

Guess who might be playing in the All-Star game.

Allen Iverson and Tracy McGrady.

I don't think I got the memo from the league office that announced the adoption of the resolution requiring the league first and foremost to be about entertainment and sales of merchandise and second about good basketball. My guess is that someone wrote it and circulated it, but that perhaps I and others were watching team sports.

The economy isn't getting a whole lot better, and the competition for the marginal sports dollar will become more fierce. There will be winners and losers, and if taxes go up for the people who can afford the tickets the most, they'll have to make choices.

That and a diluted brand won't help the NBA.

Nor will this.
