There's a piece in The New York Times this morning about the National Basketball Association's download service, from which you can buy individual playoff games for three bucks -- or a whole series for $12.99...or the entire playoffs for $79.99. The NBA's going to start hyping the service today, even though it's been available since the beginning of the playoffs.

So, who's the hot team to download? So far, Your Dallas Mavericks -- and not just the "hotly contested series" with the Golden State Warriors (really, which series was The Times watching, anyway?). Turns out the final game of last year's NBA championship series between the Miami Heat and the Mavs is also a download fave. Ah, a 95-92 loss. Seems so...I dunno...competitive in retrospect. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
