You mean it costs money to watch NBA Summer League? Online?

This was one of the saddest bullets I've come across on TrueHoop in a while:
In a bad economy, cash is king. NBA Summer League in Las Vegas starts tomorrow, and unlike years' past, you can't watch for free online. It's $14.99 to see the 55 games.
Let that marinate in your soul for a bit.

Now, I love the game of basketball. I love the NBA. And yes, there is that part of me that finds great joy in watching summer league games. I tried to explain that segment of myself a bit more after watching some particularly terrible summer action last year. This could have been an attempt to make sure I wasn't crazy for enjoying something that at times stands directly against a handful of elements that are to be loved about this game.

Casual fans aren't going to pay $14.99 to watch summer league games online. More enthusiastic fans probably won't, either. The NBA is not trying to expand their fan base with this move. They are preying on their core, the people that can't help but watch. That minority of fans who get excited at a chance to watch and root for guys like Taurean Green. (Who will, by the way, absolutely tear shit up this summer assuming a decent opportunity is provided by Chicago.)

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go find my wallet.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Now, I feel good, I begin to get real money.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
