    Bummer for Cousins, he was a fool his first few years in the league (broke the ejections record and was getting T'd up at a record pace) but it sucks seeing him injured when he's started to grow up. The positive spin is, he was out of shape this postseason, too out of shape to play really, maybe this rehab can get him back into playing shape again.

    Another record setting purchase price for a U.S. pro sports franchise - 2.35 billion for the Brooklyn Nets. Prokhorov paid 400 million for the New Jersey Nets in 2010. His teams always sucked and he'll mostly be remembered for the Kevin Garnett/Paul Pierce disaster but on the business side he's selling out and turning an enormous profit.

    Kind of dig the new rules for tampering with players under contract, and deep fines for talking to players before the free agency period ect. Should help clean things up a little.

    Looks good on paper. I don't see how they'd successfully enforce it, especially the player to player tampering. You can't stop people from talking to each other.
