Mark Cuban vs. Sir Charles and Kenny Smith

Tempest in a TNT Pot

Besides finding this little exchange between the TNT crew and Mark Cuban amusing, I picked out a few important aspects. There's actual substance here, unfortunately the clash of personalities is what's being played up.

1. Blogs vs. television. Older forms of media have been trying to grapple with emergence of blogs. Now, the media backlash has a high profile example in sports. Charles and Kenny dont "get it" about blogs, or the Internet.

2. Computer statistical analysis. Examples of such analysis can be see at and The NBA Tries to Make Teamwork a Science. Again, the TNT analysts don't "get it".

3.NBA analysis shows. Mark blogged earlier: 'Watching the ESPN crew with Stephen A, Greg Anthony and Tim Legler is painful. They are a cliche a second. Same soundbites every single game, just the player names are changed. TNT isnt much better. At least Barkley is entertaining at saying nothing." Indeed. How about relevant lessons from Hoops 101, instead?
