This final note today comes from the intersection of basketball and loopholes.

It turns out the price of an extra time out is $50,000.

In case you missed it yesterday while you were in a food coma, the NBA fined Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd for apparently intentionally spilling his soda onto the court after colliding with a player and stalling a game versus the LA Lakers.

His team was out of time outs, but the mess stopped play. Kidd says it was an accident, but the League isn't buying it.

And the Nets lost anyway.
