Basketball Day, Mark? C'mon now.
Via TrueHoop via AOL's NBA Fanhouse via Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News, late last week we got wind that Mark Cuban
thinks having a "Basketball Day" would be a cool idea
"It would have to be a weekend, but we could have NBA, college and high school games all day long and market the heck out of it," Cuban said.
Yo, Cubes. In basketball, Mutombos
do fall in the paint when you happen to not be there. Trust me, while Superman is saving Earth, Bizarro

Translation: every Sunday, the Asian American community alone is running about 35 games here in the Bay Area within a 20-mile radius, which by its sheer size results in some perhaps made-for-TV happenings, such as Ryan Mateo's 48 points

In the post-Wilt Chamberlain era, the only thing that comes close to this Bizarro world wonder is Kobe Bryant
's 62 points in three quarters against Dallas on 12/20/2005, outscoring them 62-61 (no, Kobe's 81 on 46 attempts in 42 minutes played
most certainly does NOT compare to this, and we will discuss this in detail below).Read the rest of the story
