    I don't know if anybody has brought this up before me, but I wanted to know what y'all thought about the suggestion by Chicago journalists that the ROY race was rigged by the NBA and that Brand probably was a couple votes ahead of franchise.

    Of course it was rig. Francis should have won it by himself.

    Brand should have won.

    Francis will get better trophies anyways. He dont need no stinking ROY.

    Really it is a WHO cares, situation.

    I just want us in the playoffs. Individual awards in a team game are meaningless.

    C-town may have a good point but the NBA just could not ignore Francis , no way they are going to pass up on a player with such marketing potential they would be dumb to .

    How on Earth could the NBA be agressive and still come up with a tie ? Why A Tie? Because 1 million Houston fans scream 1 million Chicago Fans are satisfied if Brand gets it
    1 million Chicago fans scream and 1 million Houston Fans are Satisfied if Francis wins . BUT half a million Chicago fans and half a million Houston fans are screaming about who should have one it by himself anyways . DO the Math the NBA was in a catch 22
    Francis wins 1 million mad
    Brand Wins 1 million mad
    Francis /Brand Win half a million from both mad STILL 1 million people are mad so what the hell
