Starwatching in the NBA

An interesting morning of NBA news for heroes of two of the dudes.

(1) Dirk Nowitzki: he appears committed to bucking the trend of irresponsible athletes and wants sole custody of his unborn child. A professional star taking on the task of single parent certainly would be unusual in this day and age, and while of course he'd have nannies around the clock, it's still an admirable decision to raise the child properly and not with a woman who has 25 identities and probably would want $25 million in child support.

(2) Yao Ming: rumors of Cleveland's new Chinese owners wanting to sign Yao are spreading. He still has another year under contract, which means he could be eligible to leave at the same time the new owners would be looking for an incentive to keep Lebron. This, of course, would be heartbreaking news for the Dude.

Dirk should have thought about this before putting his wee-wee where it didn't belong prior to getting married. But at least he's more responsible than Tom Brady.

Dude, your commentnow puts you in harmony with the views of Sarah and Bristol Palin.

Dude, how dare you insult Tom Brady on this one!

Whose child is better off? The offspring of Dirk and a VERY crazy lady, raised by Dirk and his nannies, or the offspring of Tom Brady and a supermodel, raised by its mom (and I'm sure more nannies). I think it's clear Tom's kid is going to have the better life.
