Just a couple of quick funny commercials that I spotted. The embedded clip being Blake Griffin for the Jordan Brand and below’s link John Wall for Red Bull.
Cool story that I read from Yardbarker. Larry bird picks up a ball at a Pacers’ practice and casually drains shot after shot. I guess when you were an elite shooter in the NBA, you’re an elite shooter for life.
Jason Kidd gives his final assist by helping the Knicks with saving cap space.
Jason Kidd will retire from the NBA, the point guard announced Monday. The decision comes with two years and a little more than $6 million left on his contract with the Knicks. Given his waning production and the team’s salary-cap problems, Kidd may have helped the Knicks. More »
Dwightmare: The Sequel coming to an off-season near you! Does $100+ million and the allure of L.A. really not enough for Dwight Howard? Maybe he really does care about winning more than entertaining if he is interested in joining either the Rockets and/or the Mavs. When Kobe, Gasol, and Nash are healthy, the Lakers would still be a contender but how can you not be intrigued by the Rockets with Harden, Lin, Asik and Parsons or a Dallas team with Nowitzki and the prospect of Chris Paul joining you?
Chicago Bulls forward Luol Deng and guard Kirk Hinrich are most likely out for Monday’s Game 4 against the Miami Heat, coach Tom Thibodeau said.
If there was any time for Derrick Rose to make a triumphant return to the Bulls now’s the time. Even if he claims that he’s not ready to play (contrary to the past couple of months of reports that he’s been practicing quite well), the Bulls’ roster is lacking depth with Deng and Hinrich out. He should at least give it a quarter to see how much he can either help or hurt the team. What does he have to lose other than more respect the more he declines to play?
George Karl led the Denver Nuggets to a team-record 57 wins without a big name on his roster.
Kobe Bryant is in a court battle to try to keep his mother from auctioning off mementoes from his high school days in Pennsylvania and his early NBA career.
I guess Kobe should clean his room more so that his mom doesn’t give stuff away without telling him.
A good read. Boston and New York Sports fans are very brutal towards each others teams and players but something like this should not ever be tolerated. It’s one thing to boo a player like Paul Pierce because of what team he plays for, but when the New York Knicks set up a classy pregame ceremony to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings, there’s no need for fans to be acting in that manner.
Michael Jordan’s former personal trainer Tim Grover said it was food poisoning, rather than the flu, that affected Jordan during Game 5 of the 1997 NBA Finals, which has come to be known as ‘The Flu Game.’
It doesn’t matter if Michael Jordan had the flu or ate a bad pizza - If you’re that sick and can still deliver in one of the biggest stages in sports then you are one of the greats. But I don’t think MJ would’ve won that game if he had a bad burrito though.
FAN UP, MIAMI.
Let’s hope that the Celtics, Knicks, Bulls, or Pacers can get them to eat some humble pie to go with that champagne in the playoffs.
