Jordan usually got the calls, too.

Most superstars do if they attack the basket.

Stern should begin with a symbolic 13-day suspension of Cuban to start the 2006-07 season, then go with a season-long ban if Cuban acts up again.
I've been saying this for a couple years now.

The video blog is a terrible concept. But I can't fault him for buying tickets for him and his old man. Sounds like he hasn't figured out the season is over, though.

Finals MVP Wade league leader in jersey sales
Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Dwyane Wade is on top of the NBA in another category -- sales of his jersey.

The MVP of the NBA finals had the league's most popular jersey this season, based on sales at the NBA store in New York and on NBAstore.com.

LeBron James ranked second in jersey sales, followed by Kobe Bryant and Allen Iverson.

Quote:
Jersey sales leaders
1. Dwyane Wade
2. LeBron James
3. Kobe Bryant
4. Allen Iverson
5. Shaquille O'Neal
6. Stephon Marbury
7. Tracy McGrady
8. Vince Carter
9. Carmelo Anthony
10. Dirk Nowitzki
Wade was in New York on Thursday, where he appeared at the NBA store to tape a segment for NBA TV and take questions from fans. He also appeared as a guest on "Live with Regis and Kelly."

Wade's Miami Heat teammate, Shaquille O'Neal, ranked fifth on the most popular jersey list.

The Heat wrapped up their first championship by beating Dallas on Tuesday, and NBAstore.com had its highest-grossing day on Wednesday. Sales on the site were 41 percent higher than the previous highest day, which followed Detroit's title clincher in June 2004.

I am suprised Dirk is even 10th with the NBA's, espn's and every major supporter of the NBA trying to downplay Dirk and not give him a good shoe deal.

In fairness, he's a New York native playing for the Knicks. His status as a playground legend on Coney Island seems to negate the fact that he's a douchebag in the eyes of New Yorkers.
