Competition partnership with NBA.com...

Hey guys... thought I'd let you know - as this is pretty cool in my opinion... and some of you might be interested.

I'm going to be running a few competitions at my site in conjunction with NBA.com - was approached a few days ago, and we're nutting out a few of the details, but I announced that there will be competitions

Could be cool for a few of you to take part, maybe win some gear?  Who knows?

Re: Competition partnership with NBA.com...

Yup... apparently they want to push NBA's website in hopes that more readers will realize its a solid site for stats, highlights, and coverage beyond a ESPN or Yahoo Sports.

Re: Competition partnership with NBA.com...

Odd.  I only go to ESPN for links to their talk radio shows, Mike and Mike, and The Herd.

Re: Competition partnership with NBA.com...

I'll make sure that when it does start (I'm imagining it'll be tomorrow?), I'll post something - it'd be cool if some people on CR could win some stuff...

Re: Competition partnership with NBA.com...

I just use ESPN because it is central with all sports, easier to me than going to MLB, NBA, NHL etc etc.

Meh... someone's just angry 'cause Dallas got eliminated.

I joke... did you read the piece on my site about the likelihood of Cuban blowing up the roster?

Re: Competition partnership with NBA.com...

Personally I think nba.com is pretty substandard with providing information at times. But I don't have the time/energy to find a better source. I do know though that if I was going to start playing fantasy basketball semi seriously I would try and find a better statistical source...

Also re Dallas, they have the ability to really blow up their roster don't they, as far as big contracts coming off the books now or being close enough to use as trade bait?

Re: Competition partnership with NBA.com...

A few... however, as the piece points out - Cuban has a history on this.

Re: Competition partnership with NBA.com...

I use NBA.com all the time haha i barely go on espn.


Ask me to play.I'll play. Ask me to shoot. I'll shoot. Ask me to pass. I'll pass. Ask me to steal, blockout, sacrifice, lead, dominate. ANYTHING. But it's not what you ask of me. It's what I ask of myself. LeBron The greatest thing a man can do in this world is to make the most out of the stuff that has been given him. This is success, and there is no other.

I believe NBA.com is now operated by Turner


Pat led the passing with 7 assists, and his usual steady defensive play held the opposing first squad to no double-digit point getters. He was heard running down the court screaming "If I can't score, you won't either!"

There's a 50% chance of getting either live or die. Obviously you're more likely to die, but if there are two options there is a 50% chance of getting either. -SH
