    Not to be too cynical, but I'm guessing ticket sales were a bit down?

    Maybe they think he's a good basketball player?

    He's a lot better at basketball than he is at badminton..

    I took badminton class with him my last semester and you'd think his hand eye coordination would be through the roof...not the case. Ha.

    Re: Chris Allen acquired by the Iowa Energy

    Wish him, and any former Cyclone, all the luck!

    I don't follow D-League that much. What would be the point in acquiring his rights this late in the season? Just curious, if anyone knows.

    Well, that too. Obviously they're not going to go out and pay someone who can't contribute.
