Default NBA bans Butler from chewing straws

http://sports.espn.go.com/dallas/nba...ory?id=4945104

ALLAS -- One of the first things many people noticed about Caron Butler after his arrival to the Dallas Mavericks is that the guard likes to chew straws during games.

The NBA obviously took notice as well.

NBA executive vice president Stu Jackson phoned Butler on Tuesday and told him to leave his straws at home. Butler did not play against the Los Angeles Lakers due to a reaction to medication, so he was unavailable for comment.

But the Mavs confirmed that the league is serious about outlawing straw chewing.

News, notes and analysis of the Mavericks from ESPNDallas.com's Jeff Caplan, Tim MacMahon and the rest of our team. Blog.

"It's against the rules," Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said.

"It's a safety issue, period," NBA senior vice president for basketball communications Tim Frank said Thursday.

Too many rules these days.

It's just David Stern being David Stern. Always sticking it to the Mavs, especially Mark Cuban. Man, he really hates him and the Mavs

Look at this recap. Straw chewing was contagious. All the players were doing it, even Dirk. It even shows the commentators chewing on straws, lol!

NBA - a sports organization dominated by black players, ban chewing straws.
MLB - a sports organization dominated by whites and latinos allow chewing tobbaco.

Which decision will have a worse impact on the youth who look up to athletes?
