The Honesty Zone: The Summit

July 1, 2010 Leave a comment

If this is your first experience with The Honesty Zone, you’ve picked a great one to take away your innocence. This is my version of the, “trust tree.” A safe place where everything is right with the world. No lies, no faint recollections, no prognostications; just good old fashioned, 100-proof, ice-cold truth.

And wouldn’t you know it, the universe just so happens to have something confidential that it wishes to share with us. This past week, some of the summer’s most mesmerizing NBA free agents met in the secrecy of South Beach. Or so they thought.

In the 1980’s, the NBA was ruled by a small group of dominant teams that clashed epically against each other while feasting on the weaker teams in between. As defenses grew more advanced and used the rules of the era to stifle scoring, the parody increased dramatically, culminating in an eighth seed New York, reaching the NBA Finals against San Antonio in the strike-shortened 1998-1999 season.

But since then, the rules have steadily changed in the new century to bolster scoring and give the stars a chance to shine, the game has shifted back to only a few powerhouses vs. a league full of pretenders. Read more…
