that image was posted by Gary Payton on his official page.  I thought it was funny where it was coming from :)

...man I haven't kept up with NBA for a long time, and it shows when I can recall the Sonics series back then in 96 more than recent NBA news!

Ha, yeah, I think they played the Rockets. That was about the last time I payed close attention to the NBA, too.

Rice won his appeal and can be signed by any team now.  Who's going to jump.

Go NFL. Give me your murderers, give me your rapists, give me your domestic assaulters.

Not surprising. The league created a set of rules saying 6 games for a first offense, and then completely stomped all over those with an indefinite suspension (all to continue the illusion that they knew nothing about what had really happened).

As for Rice's career, nobody touches him this year. He'll get a training camp invite from a good team that has enough PR credibility built up to take the hit, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's done. Running backs creeping up on 30 don't tend to have much of a market.
