It has nothing to do with grammar at all, it has to do with your clear lack of understanding of the NBA game exhibited in your last two posts. I'm not even a Duke fan, so the last part of your poor attempt at a response does not even apply. But please do not try to pass your opinion of the NBA game as gospel, as you'd be better served to start watching and trying to understand the game rather than firing up NBA Live and beating your chest about your favorite college team.
I am not arguing anymore because the whole topic is pointless, and I do believe we can all agree that all four coaches (Mike Krzyzewski, Dean Smith, Roy Williams, and Larry Brown) are impressive coaches.
As far as the NBA goes, I honestly do not even consider the NBA a sport anymore. David Stern has turned this whole bussiness into a large corporate organization that is only out there for one reason: money. An interesting fact is that most of the top teams in the NBA are the one's that have really high GSP ratings (Gross State Product, in other words how much money a state spends). I have made a list of where each NBA Playoff team from last year ranks in the GSP below my post. The NBA is a bussiness not a sports league. Have you noticed how the NBA is ran compared to the NFL, NHL, and MLB. The NFL and MLB have conducted and still are conducting a frequent amount of drug tests as where David Stern is conducting a dress code. The NFL is harsher on their own players than the Law is. The MLB will suspend two of their biggest money makers in A-Rod, and Manny to make a statement that steroids should not, and will not be tolerated in baseball. The NHL is one of, if not the best ran sports league out of the four I mentioned, but will never compare to any of the other leagues due to its lack of minority in the sport.
As for David Stern, I have a lot of problems with the way he runs the NBA. There is no other league that does a worse job with their players and the improvement of their game. Instead of creating a dress code for his players, he should have created a playing code. I really wish I could watch one NBA game during the regular season and not feel like every player on the court wasn't trying until the final six minutes. The playoffs are good and the NBA will always do well in urban areas do to it's black to white ratio, but if Stern wants to take basketball to a whole new level he should worry more about his players attitudes and less attention to their popularity.GSP Rankings
