I will start out by saying that the NBA is unfairly giving certain teams advantages in basketball. I will let con go first.

I accept the debate and state that it is my opponents burden of proof to prove the resolution true,

I have no idea if the NBA is rigged or not but will take a neutral stance in this round and give my opponent another resolution true, If my opponent can convince me and the audience that the NBA is most certainly rigged, then my opponents win the debate, if the resolution is not confirmed to be true the I win.

Definition.....

Rigged..

To manipulate dishonestly for personal gain

Love's Philosophy

The fountains mingle with the river,
And the rivers with the ocean;
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In another's being mingle--
Why not I with thine?

See, the mountains kiss high heaven,
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister flower could be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea;--
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

"The Voice

There is a voice inside of you
That whispers all day long,
"I feel this is right for me,
I know that this is wrong."
No teacher, preacher, parent, friend
Or wise man can decide
What's right for you--just listen to
The voice that speaks inside."

- Shel Silverstein
