NBA sees the light (for the moment)

The NBA has rejected an offer from EA to be the exclusive video-game licensee for the National Basketball Association. This would have created a situation like EA has created with the NFL, slamming the door on rival video game manufacturers by making it impossible to create competing products.

We'll see if it this holds up through the inevitable second proposal, but for right now the NBA has done a good thing for gamers everywhere.

In other news, the Boston Celtics just signed 11-year-old playground phenom Billy "Blix" Rogers to a three year deal reportedly worth tens of millions. Rogers is set to join the team Wednesday in Memphis but is not expected to play significant minutes until Friday's home game against the Wizards. Commissioner Stern hails it as a great day for the league, the city of Boston, and community center boys leagues everywhere.
