Perspective on the NBA: Responses to Other Blogs

This week instead of posting a traditional entry, I will share some comments that I submitted to two other blogs relating to sports, specifically professional basketball. The first is from blogmaverick, a blog belonging to the Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban. I am always interested to read Cuban’s entries, which range in topic from business and technology to the NBA. This particular post is in reference to Team USA and the frustration over international rules after their recent loss to Greece. The best basketball players in the world play in the NBA, which is comprised mostly of American talent. Yet, Team USA has not dominated worldwide competition.
The second blog entry I responded to was from True Hoop, a basketball website belonging to sports writer Henry Abbott. This topic dealt with the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program, which requires rookies attend a series of lectures about what to expect in the NBA and how to make the right decisions regarding finances, the media, and even groupies.
