If you are an internet NBA junkie, you have probably seen the idea for the “NBA Championship Belt” floating around the internet. If you have not, get ready to care about the regular season.
The championship belt starts with the previous year’s NBA champion, the Miami Heat. The belt is then passed whenever the owner loses. The 76ers are current owners of the belt after they beat the Heat last Wednesday. They are still undefeated after beating the Wizards and Bulls over the weekend.
The idea came from Reddit user hckygod91 and it looks to have gained some internet momentum. Check out NBAChampionshipBelt.com for the latest standings. There currently is no physical belt, but I hope David Stern creates one before retires.
I’m hoping this idea catches on because it gives hardcore fans of less-than-stellar teams something to cheer for and brag about.
So, good on you 76ers. Own that belt.

Anthony Bennett’s scoring drought is reaching historic levels, but coach Mike Brown is sticking with the No. 1 pick in the draft.

This could have been about Chris Bosh being absent. It could have been about Michael Beasley finally being present and accounted for.

Dwane Casey talked to me about what makes Miami's defense so scary, Dwyane Wade's huge impact and how losing Chris Bosh doesn't really alter things too much in regards to their defense.
LeBron James was asked jokingly on Tuesday night whether he would consider signing with the Toronto Raptors in free agency next offseason.
“I’m not answering free agent questions,” James said, failing to completely conceal a grin.
James has made clear that he will not discuss free agency during the season.
With his 10th point in Tuesday night's game against the Toronto Raptors at the Air Canada Centre, Miami Heat forward LeBron James became the fifth player in NBA history to score in double figures in 500 or more consecutive games.
James reached 500 with a first-quarter dunk.
It is the longest active such streak in the NBA.
