The vuvuzelas are definitely annoying, and grunting by women is irritating, so who takes it? I have to go with the vuvuzelas. I get used to the grunting after awhile, and when watching Maria Sharapova (the queen of noises) play, I hardly even hear it anymore. But the vuvuzelas, I can never fully adapt to them, even after ESPN has attempted to mute them extensively.
If I was an NBA team I would not care about what Rick Pitino had to say about anything, especially in the LeBron James sweepstakes. He cannot lure anyone to his school these days, so he has no pull here.
