No more tights for AI, C-Webb and the other AI?

The NBA is apparently jealous of all the attention the NFL is getting for their brain-dead decision earlier this week to ban all cool touchdown celebrations. In response, the NBA is trying to come up with a stupid rule change of their own. They’ve targeted the tights that several players have taken to wearing this year, including Allen Iverson, Chris Webber, Sammy Dalembert and Andre Iguodala.

Players like wearing the tights because it keeps the muscles in their legs warm and loose, thus lessening the likelihood of cramps and muscle tears. The league, on the other hand, “simply does not like the look of players wearing visible hose.” Convincing. (We're not going to say we love the tights, but we don't exactly see need to ban them.)

Meanwhile, the Sixers have back to back games with the disastrous Knicks this weekend (tonight in NYC, Sunday at the Wac). If the Sixers don’t win both, we will officially be rooting for them to miss the playoffs. If they do win both — as they should — we’re going to hold out hope that they can overtake Indiana and Milwaukee in their final ten games and get the all important six seed.

And for some added entertainment, check out AI2 reach back to the three point line to catch and dunk this alley oop (the only positive play during Sixers v. Pacers last Sunday).
