Thanks to tipster Rob and his rapper friend "Rube" for this ode to the NBA. He brings up a good point and something that is often overlooked in this hotly contested negotiation: "When I'm stuck watchin' reruns of Malcolm in the Middle and World Series of Poker can you fathom just a little the void that I feel and let it get filled and even if the boys come back your money stands still?"

Can you, Mr. Stern? Can you?
