Conventional Wisdom 1: Reading sportswriters, bloggers, posters, etc. it's clearly evident that 90% of the point guards in the league are below average defenders. Go figure. Who's the benchmark "average" PG defender? Name the 50% of guards who are better, then the 50% of guards who are worse. Hint: the guy with the ball in his hand gets to make the first move (action), the defender has to catch up (reaction).
Conventional Wisdom 2: Everyone says there will be a lockout. Think about it: this means there won't be a lockout.
Conventional Wisdom 3: It's way cool to use initials instead of entire words, i.e. RG, instead of Rose Garden. This saves an entire syllable, which I could otherwise use to say "dear" in front of every utterance to my girlfriend.
