Oh and Kasten wrote a article and never mentions bankruptcy.

So, because he doesn't mention in an online article that means he didn't mention it on television? Interesting.

Higher in the standings? Who cares? The NBA has a cap, and a luxury tax, and the owners have some idea what they are going to spend on salaries going into any season (and, if you follow the NBA, you'd know the Hawks are basically rebuilding from square one right now).

But, at the end of the day, what do you think is easier to sell in Georgia, basketball or hockey? Considering the number of basketball teams in the state compared to the number of hockey teams, my vote's on basketball.

Again, it's off the topic, but it is the bone upon which you've chosen to latch yourself.
