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.
Manti Te’o is coming to San Diego, courtesy of a second-round pick. And, if the above cartoon from his newly-adopted hometown paper, the San Diego Union-Tribune, is any indication, old jokes about Te’o won’t die easily. The combination of poor … Continue reading →
I’d expect a joke like this from a rival team’s city Newspaper like the Boston Herald (New England Patriots) or even the New York Post (New York Jets), but seriously from the city that drafted you? Way to make Manti feel right at home. Stay classy San Diego!
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.
Legendary NFL broadcaster Pat Summerall has passed away at the age of 82.
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.
