Welcome to The Hardwood Courtroom!


Hello basketball fans! Have you been feeling bored, depressed, angry, distraught, suicidal, or some combination of the five since you realized the 2011-2012 NBA season might be in jeopardy? Don't worry, you're not alone. In fact, there are millions of fans from all over the world feeling the same way you are. And more than ever before, now is the time we must stand together. There are going to be lots of people in the coming months trying to convince you that the NBA is just a league of money-grubbing, uneducated thugs - but don't listen to them! We know those people are just bitter because they wish they had these guys' jobs. Keep close to your fellow NBA brothers and sisters and together we WILL make it through this dreadful lockout!

I am here to welcome all of you to a new league I started called The Hardwood Courtroom. This league is designed for the most loyal of loyal NBA fans to come together and do what we love most besides watch NBA basketball - debate NBA basketball! So you think Derrick Rose is overrated and didn't really deserve that MVP? Think D-Wade should've made the All-NBA First Team last year instead of Kobe? Think all that LeBron hate is overblown and he's still head-and-shoulders above the rest of the competition? Well let the world know by voting on our weekly debates and leaving your insightful comments every single day!!!

To learn how our league works, check out the "League Structure & Rules" page located at the right sidebar. Also, read up on the eleven people competing for the Hardwood Courtroom Championship this year on the "Participants" page. As you can see, NBA knowledge stretches across the globe; our competition features every race and is connected to North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Our season will start Tuesday, November 1st - just like our beloved NBA would have - and last until the middle of June. Check out the "Season Schedule" page to see which debates will be taking place each week!

Thank you for visiting our blog and we hope to hear from you all season long!
