What happens in the Philippines...
[Thanks to TrueHoop for the link to this article, written by Rafe Bartholomew of Slate.com...]
We'd like to say that what happens in the NBA happens in dreamleague (well, sort of, and maybe that's vice-versa).
But we certainly would like to avoid what happens in the PBA (Philippines Basketball Association) from happening in dreamleague, although a good portion of you will no doubt be unflinched by this article and know that we are particularly -- and perhaps helplessly -- vulnerable to this type of stuff.
In case you're too lazy to click, the article is about how to skirt the PBA's rule of a height maximum of 6'6". My favorite quote...
"Coaches who watched players droop and bend their way into the league acquired a bemused fatalism similar to the outlook many Filipinos have toward their famously corrupt politicians—they couldn't stop the cheating, so they laughed at it."__________
