In case you have been living under a rock, or already lost your playoff matchup and moved on to baseball, LaMarcus Aldridge is undergoing season-ending surgery for a labral tear in his hip. Labral tear? I thought only women could have those. And I also thought the hip was a bone, and that bones can’t […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Rajon Rondo dropped a 22/5/14 line, with no steals, but also no turnovers last night. After the game Rondo and his tender pinkie told Rick Fox in the TNT studio to tell Kobe Bryant and his tender index finger to go suck a big one when they talk to him later. Then Chris Webber earnestly […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Three months ago, the Charlotte Bobcats were an aimless team with two underwhelming fantasy options (Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson), a slight surprise late-round draft pick (D.J. Augustin), and a long-shot stud that, again, has underwhelmed (Tyrus Thomas). Now, Augustin is the only player healthy and still wearing a Bobcats uniform and it’s terrible TV […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Between trades and buyouts, more than 50 players will be wearing jerseys they weren’t wearing a week ago. Fifty. Five-oh, my! We’ve had three of the league’s top 20 players switch conferences (Aw, shucks. You still consider me top 20? Easy, Gerald Wallace. I’m going by my preseason rankings. Oh. Still. Thanks just the same.) […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
There must be some nudie pics of Pacers owner Herb Simon floating around GM David Morway’s home somewhere. I’m also convinced nudie pics of Morway are floating around in Jim O’Brien’s house. How else do you explain the clusterfudge of poor decisions being made in IndianapoLoss this season and every one of the last four? […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
LeBron James felt, for a fleeting moment, like Bruce Springsteen. A stadium full of Midwesterners wearing t-shirts with his face on it, signs requesting that he do stuff; all waiting for the man of the night to put on a show. And he did. The Cavs, in turn, felt for a fleeting moment the energy […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
I was among those who eagerly awaited the inevitable moment this season when Steve Nash went down with some sort of old man injury so that Goran Dragic could be taken out of the garage and driven around like Cameron’s Ferrari in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” Sure as shootin’, Nash’s groin laid him low. And […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s been said that Kevin Durant is an angel, a lamb of a guy; really top-shelf goods inside and out. For the most part, I tend to believe this, but everyone’s got their dark peccadilloes. Some people rub the free cologne samples in magazines over their bodies instead of showering. Some tuck the sales tag […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Toney Douglas – Just when you thought you had a handle on the New York guard situation – KAPLOW – Master Douglas continued the debate. Do not debate Douglas! Give a New York guard 31 minutes on the floor, he’ll have a big night. On Thursday, it was a 30/4 night with four steals, five […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
Louis Amundson – Remember how shocked you were the first time you found out Greg Ostertag wasn’t from Lithuania or Poland or something? Yeah, I still have that feeling every time I look at Amundson. Dude’s got to be from Sweden … no? South Africa? He’s from Ventura, you say? Is that in Norway? … […]Please, blog, may I have some more?
