Aside from its deplorable violent crime rate and public school woes, the two worst things about the Kansas City area are the lack of a beach and the absence of an NBA team. One of those concerns was addressed- at least for one night- on Friday. The preseason game between Miami and Oklahoma City wasn't very compelling, but the chance to see a handful of the world's best athletes was a rare treat. Kevin Durant (still so skinny!), LeBron James (Narcissus anyone?), Zydrunas Ilgauskas (that goon can shoot!), Udonis Haslem (why didn't he start?) and Chris Bosh (the best player on the court) exude star power not seen in the NFL or MLB. Hey David Stern- I'd like the Kings back, please.
