I've been getting quite a bit of e-mail from people celebrating the NBA's rejection of EA's bid for an exclusive license, a proposed deal much like the Great Satan's exclusive NFL and NFLPA licenses that they bought last week. Before we start partying on the crumbling remnants of the Berlin Wall, please consider that the story on IGN says that the 'initial' bid was rejected. That's not the NBA saying "no"--it's the NBA saying "scratch us a bigger check." So expect EA to wheedle and slime their way into this license as well, although I hope the NBA instead realizes just how stupid exclusive licenses are for sports games.
