Five for Friday

By Beckley Mason

We've seen some great ideas since launching HoopIdea last month, but I'm not sure anyone has truly captured the spirit of HoopIdea like Twitter's @ilikecookies, who this week tweeted: "#HoopIdea Let dogs play in the NBA. Blatant dog-ism should be left in the past. Free Airbud!"

Free Airbud indeed.

All right, on to our five ideas to ponder this Friday. This week's set comes from Twitter (follow us at @HoopIdea!), email, and blogs, and includes a revolutionary take on the jump ball. Enjoy! JOIN THE CONVERSATION

You can give us your ideas and talk with us and other fans in the following places:
And for the truly ambitious: Shoot a short video of yourself explaining your HoopIdea, upload it to YouTube and share the link with us on Twitter or Google+.
