As i am a HUGE sports fan, i guess i should share my knowledge of the best sport sites ! I am going to try to write down the best basketball sites ! Please add the sites you think are usefull !
The official site of the National Basketball Association. Includes news, features, multimedia, player profiles, chat transcripts, schedules and statistics.
Probably the most visted basketball site in the whole world, the National Basketball Association's site provides milions of the U.S.A.'s basketball league fans with all the news in the basketball world, photos and video files of players and movements !
As it should, it beeing the official NBA site, www.nba.com provides us all the player and team stats that one could ask for ! You can also see all the schedules and standings and also from www.nba.com you can find out wich TV channels broadcast your favorite game ! It has a online store and a "Fantasy basketball" contest in wich you can create your own virtual team ! Also a very good feature is that they have links to the official sites of all the It is one of the most visited and one of the best basketball sites on the net, even tough the menus can prove to be a little tricky !
Basketball! College basketball, Pro basketball, highschool, NBA, schedules, daily news, statistics and more!
I know that it may sound that the short summary of the site was copied from the site's meta description, but that is just what the site is : news from College Basketball, from the Nba and Wnba, News from the Games industry, without any obvious linkage between them ! They also have informations about some teams, a scores and live scores section ! In addition to that, they have a section where you can find the betting ods on some matches, and a free pick betting section that i personally advise you to stay away from ! if you want to find some betting tips, check out our betting sites section to find out wich are the best tipster sites and forums ! A site that is usefull concerning the College, Ncaa(m) and Ncaa(w) news ! I have to say that the news are well written !
This is a site where you will find informations about the USA's basketball national teams and a few more !
This is a place not a lot of people knows about ! BUT... it's usefullness is proved only if you are interessed in the USA's mens and womens national basketball teams ! Here you will find out the news in the international basketball world, stuff about the schedules, the latest results, an events calendar, general info about the NBA national teams as well as their history ! That's pretty much it ! The design ain't great but it keeps the information at a easy-to-reach level !
a well designed site that can still provide you with the best informations on the net concerning what goes on in basketball outside U.S. !
This is the best designed site in this list ! Even togh the design is just wonderful, the informations are easy to reach !
But what is this site about ? It's the official site of the Federation Internationalle of Basketball Asociations ! Yeah... it's a pumped-up name, but it's quite simple ! You want to find anything that goes on in basketball outside the U.S. this is where you should be making your clicks ! The news about the Europeean and World National Championships and the Club tournaments !
You can check out wich are the latest news, read rge weekly interview, find out stuff about the events, the game rules and even check out a nice FIBA e-shop !
It's a very good site if you want to know anything that goes on in basketball outside U.S. !
The analog site about the woman's national basketball league ! it has the same design and all the same stuff you will find at www.nba.com, the Wnba version !
it is the woman's national basketball division official site ! Here you will find photos and video files about the players and the WNBA events !
As it should, it beeing the official NBA site, www.wnba.com provides us all the player and team stats that one could ask for ! You can also see all the schedules and standings and also from www.wnba.com you can find out wich TV channels broadcast your favorite game ! It has a online store and a "Fantasy basketball" contest in wich you can create your own virtual team ! Also a very good feature is that they have links to the official sites of all the teans ! The same rule aplies about the design : tricky !

Personally I dont like straightedge kids, not because they dont drink or do drugs or what the stand for.
But the fact that all the ones I know at least try and force what they believe on you. Fair enough if you dont want to drink and do drugs thats your choice but dont force it on others, its just annoying.
Personally I dont think hardcore music is healthy though, from what Ive heard its angry and depressing, not the stuff you should listen to. I think to be happy you should listen to happy music, yea the occasionaly sad song aint so bad, but if thats all you listen to I think it puts you in a bad state of mind.
Also I dont think drink, drugs and casual sex is that bad, true if you binge its not going to be good at all. But in moderation drinking makes you socialable, gets you friends makes you feel happy, weed makes you relax and smile. As long as you dont go OTT you'll be a perfectly round individual. Many of the great thinkers loved to drink, do drugs. And im not talking this century, Socrates was a lover of drink and young men, dont forget though that in ancient greece men were considered superior lovers to women and gay sex was common place.
Noone can deny that this was a great society but casual sex, drugs and drink were everwhere!
Also casual sex, again in moderation, isnt a bad thing. Us guys get depressed and low if we dont get some, and for some people, me included getting a girlfriend isnt a good option (I personnaly wouldnt go out with anyone I know as I have issues and I just dont think anyone is worth it).
Also its a good way to experiment, become a better lover, and so when you do settle down you will have a good relationship.
There is more than just physical health, mental health counts for a great deal, and in this highly strung society we live in I dont see anything wrong with using drink, drugs and casual sex as a way of relaxing and coping with stress.
Plus I find it a little bit insulting that you are 'more healthy' than the rest of us. I work out and do run and im very healthy, my friends skate and play basketball, I also rock climb and play drums (which does require considerable stamina for some parts). I also drink, I smoke weed with friends and have casual sex whenever an oppourtunity arrives with someone who I would do. I dont go overboard, I dont smoke weed everyday, once every couple of months maybe, sometimes more like when I went to amsterdam. I drink more than I smoke, when my friends go out I join then, I drink, I dont go overboard, yea sometimes I get a lil too drunk, but I havent passed out for a long time as I know how to control my drinking now. I use protection most of the time when having sex, if I dont its because im too randy to go fetch one and trust them not to give me something.
Im still a very healthy, socially adept, popular person, im looking at an A in my maths A level and a good grade in my physics one, my biology lacks true but to be honest its not a concern of mine.]
Dont get me wrong, im not insulting what you believe, like I said I respect what other people believe (as much as id like to change some beliefs). People can loose their way with drink drugs and sex, so straightedge is a safe way, if you know you have an obsessive personality or cant control yourself then it could well be a good way of avoiding future problems.
Also about vegetarianism, I personally love meat, although I still eat some vege food too (I do like vege sausages from time to time) and I dont see anything wrong with it. My mother did try vegetarianism, I cant remember what she said, I can remember pro's and cons of whats she experienced. I think she said she felt healthier, but she felt tired. I personally blame her diet, as I know she's not the best of cooks bless her. My sister is vege too which is why I eat vege food sometimes. I see it as a choice, I dont see any gain apart from maybe personal feelings. Maybe its some kind of placebo, I dont know. But I have no strong view either way, I think vegan's do go a little OTT. But they arent really hurting anyone or themselves (provided they have a proper diet) so I dont see anything wrong with it.
Please feel free to criticise what I have jotted down. Its a lil messy I think. Im always open to new ideas so dont think ill immediatly reject anything you say
