The NBA is serious about this lockout stuff. So serious, that reportedly the league will fine teams $1 million if there is contact between them and a player.

Which created an odd situation for Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh. Via the Sun Sentinel:
Under lockout rules, the NBA has banned contact between players and team officials or coaches. Bosh, however, already has several such Miami Heat members on his invitation list.
Uh oh. That could be awkward. So Pat Riley and Erik Spoelstra might have to show up and completely ignore Bosh? Kind of like the regular season! But evidently, the league will make exceptions in extreme circumstances, one being a wedding I guess.
While the Heat declined comment Friday, citing league guidelines, the team apparently has already cleared the appearances of management and the coaching staff at the power forward's nuptials through the NBA.

NBA spokesman Tim Frank said Friday, "There are exceptions to the general no-contact rule in special or unusual circumstances."
I wonder though if when Spoelstra's going through the wedding line to shake Bosh and his bride's hand if he's going to try and cram in a two-hour conversation in a 15-second window. Or maybe he'll slip him a little note with offseason ideas.

You know teams aren't going to entirely follow the no contact rule. Some will break it. It's just a matter of not getting caught and getting creative. One way? A wedding. Good thinking, Chris.

Yup, that's right...they never did utilize Bosh right, make's me wonder why they even signed the guy in the first place...oh well, there lack of using Bosh is one reason why the Dallas Mavericks are champions, and the Miami Heat are not.


On another note, I wonder if he will shed tears over his wedding, like he shed them after that loss? Is Eric Dampier invited? Someone is going to have to hold him up again.

HaHa. That is so true. Two and a half men in Riley's eyes.
