NBA Updates (1996)

DOH! They were so close. I have predicted that the Utah Jazz will beat the Seattle SuperSonics in the NBA finals. They almost did it last night but they were stupid. They let the clock run out thinking they would get the ball back with four seconds left and instead they kicked it out-of-bounds and lost the game. Whoopsy.

The Bulls are beating the Orlando Magic 1-0 while the Sonics are up 2-0 over the Jazz.

In other NBA news:

Michael Jordan on Monday won the NBA‘s Most Valuable Player Award for the fourth time. Michael Jordan led the league in scoring for a record eighth season. Jordan joins Wilt Chamberlain as a four-time MVP. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar won the most MVPs with six, while Bill Russell won five.

And because he thinks he is the baddest there ever was, get this:

Michael Jordan reportedly is asking for $36 million over two years to remain with the Chicago Bulls.

Question: Are you shaking your head with a dazed drooly look on your face right now?

I need a raise.

Whatya think?
