Rudy Gay got a second opinion from Dr. Freeze who told him he was going to need surgery that would lay him low for up to six months. Speaking of Dr. Freeze, a non-baseball-related visit from Dr. James Andrews is like those weird episodes where Batman randomly helped out the Scooby-Doo gang.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Who knew that Kevin Martin would drain 34 points and sink a perfect 18-for-18 from the line and he wouldn’t even have the most impressive line on his own team? Kyle Lowry triple-doubled in his first career game last night (28/10/11, with three treys and three steals) and has come on this season like gangbusters.Please, blog, may I have some more?
On hiatus from his Midwestern barnstorming tour, blues percussionist Taj Gibson will return to the Bulls’ starting rotation for at least one game, but perhaps three or four while Carlos Boozer heals (and adds fuel to the Derrick Rose for MVP debate).Please, blog, may I have some more?
This time of the year is always bittersweet. Shuffling up the collective deck of players and dealing them all over the NBA map is fun and exciting, like the time you see your first boob up close. You’ve spent a lot of time imagining it, then – poof – it’s there right in front of you and you have no idea what to do.Please, blog, may I have some more?
A couple weeks back I pointed out that the Hornets were 4-0 this season when Marcus Thornton sees at least 22 minutes of pee-tee. Well, last night he saw a season-high 32 minutes and NOLA beat Orlando in overtime. Booyahkasha! It shouldn’t be this difficult.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Amidst all the tomfoolery, rigmarole and other old-timey adjectives my grandfather uses when he throws his shoulder out churning his Victrola, connected with the pending blockbuster trade that need not be discussed until it is official, a story likely to get lost in the shuffle is Cleveland’s loss of yet another roster bulwark (another grandpappy word) Anderson Varejao. Having only played one game since Christmas, Varejao will miss the remainder of the season with a torn foot tendon.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The biggest bust in the NBA that no one is talking about has got to be Tim Duncan. Well, no. Technically, Boris Diaw‘s bust is the biggest one no one is talking about, but that’s just because he’s sensitive about it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Marvin Williams strung together a trio of decent games this week (15/8 while shooting .586 from the field) and now Joe Johnson is recovering from having ‘loose bodies’ in his elbow. It’s not as bad as Robert Mapplethorpe’s collection of elbows in loose bodies, but still.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Kevin Garnett intensified the normally routine preseason on Tuesday by earning a technical foul and then laughing about it. The refs mistook the smile for Cagey bearing his teeth and ejected him after the second technical. To be fair, he earned that first technical by calmly discussing a foul call, which the new NBA rule (a week away from becoming an old NBA rule), says you can no longer do.Please, blog, may I have some more?
