Listen, we know most of you aren't paying attention to the NBA finals like you were last year, but for those of who are (some out of Heat Hate, some out of love for the game), we've been treated to some rather abysmal NBA promos featuring Linkin Park's shitty, shitty music.

Metta World PeaceWhen Lakers forward Ron Artest announced last week that he is legally changing his name to Metta World Peace, the Internet exploded with bafflement and criticism. Obviously, this is coming from sports fans. We in the music world are accustomed to odd stage names. Dallas' own Eryk ... More >>
Never been happier to be wrong. And I don't care that I wasn't alone -- I admit I was wrong.
I'm stunned by the Mavs sweeping the Lakers, punctuated by Sunday's 122-86 epic shellacking. Matter of fact, I'm more surprised by this outcome than the Navy SEALs sweeping Osama.

The Boston Celtics have the lead.
But the Los Angeles Lakers have the advantage.
Boston needs just win one - tonight in Game 6 or in a Game 7 Thursday night - to clinch its record 18th NBA Championship. They won't get it.
As I said before the series, Lakers in 7.
How's that you a ... More >>
The Mavs are Pole dancing. Got your $1s ready? We can no longer confuse the Dallas Mavericks' silence with inactivity.
Let's hope we never confuse Marcin Gortat with the franchise's legacy of Great White Nopes.
The Mavericks last night agreed to re-sign 36-year-old point guard Jason Kidd ... More >>
After him, Dallas' draft history this decade gets really bad really quick.As we prepare to watch the Lakers turn the Thuggets (L.A. in 7) into mere mortals in the Western Conference Finals, let's ponder what the Mavs can do to get back into the NBA's final four.
