Basketball Interlude

Cringe-inducing words from TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott:

Every time I hear about the government needing “shovel ready” projects to invest in as economic stimulus, I can’t help but think: Governments pay for stadiums anyway. Surely somebody is going to get some stadium stimulus dollars. Tim Romani from Icon Venue Group addressed that. He said he thought there would be stimulus money for “horizontal” costs associated with new arenas (parking, rail, infrastructure) but not “vertical” (the arena itself).

The thought of showering incompetent franchise owners (I’m looking at you, Abe Pollin) with stimulus money is enough to make any fan retch.
