Posted Sunday September 01, 2013, About: JR Smith says Knicks will win NBA championship
In his defense, if he told the truth and said that they have a less than probable chance of getting out of their Division, and even a harder time getting out of their Conference, the only one that would root for him would be his mother and grandmother for telling the truth.

Does he mean other than when he plays NBA 2K14?

A story about how a trade was almost pulled is newsworthy?

That's like telling people about the huge fish you almost caught.

Posted Monday August 19, 2013, About: Pierce wants to outlast Duncan, Kobe, Dirk and KG
Even though they are roughly the same age, KG has been in the league 3 years more than Pierce, and played 108 more games total than Pierce played in the same time period. KG played in 1323 NBA regular Season games, and 134 Playoff games, compared to Pierce's 108 College, 1102 NBA regular season and 136 NBA Playoff games.

For me Pierce would have to play one more season with significant playing time to surpass KG in longevity, but either way you look at it, every player who has ever cashed a paycheck from the NBA, dreams of playing as long as Pierce has, and can only hope to play at the level of Pierce for a few years, muchless 16+ years.

In the age of "Free Agency", To play for 15 years with the same team is unheard of, especially at the level Pierce has. Even if you are not a Pierce fan, you cannot help but to respect Pierce.
Posted Sunday August 18, 2013, About: A-Rod denies squealing on other PEDs users
A-Rod is Sinking ship, that tried to play a game of "chicken" with the iceberg that is the baseball fans of America, and lost. The first time around, it was forgiveable. Now its a race to see who can get further away from this black hole of integrity. He may not have ???ratted??? on his colleagues, but that fact is moot as everyone who gets busted will blame him anyways.

A-Rod can't be saved. He will lose his ticket to the HoF, and an asterisk behind every stat, from his first game to his last. At this point, there is nothing he or anyone else can do to save him. For those players in the HoF, it cost them more than 10-20 years of their life to get inside, but if A-Rod wants to get inside the HoF it???s going to cost him $19.50, or if he brings 19 friends, he can get a group discount for $17.50/person because that is the only way he is getting in.

He is going to admit this since he got caught. What are the chances he would've freely admitted this instead of waiting till after he got caught.
Posted Monday June 10, 2013, About: Will Nets hire NBA's first foreign head coach?
If they do, it will be hard for them to succeed. The NBA is different from other pro leagues in other countries. The game is different, just like the differences between the NBA and College Basketball. Some of the best College Basketball coaches were utter failures in the NBA and vice versa. Any foriegn coach with little to no NBA experience as a player or coach, will be a trial by fire. You have to give a coach at least 3 years to find out if a coach can win or not. It's tough for anyone to win with a team they didn't put together. Bill Parcells said it best "They want you to cook the dinner at least they should let you shop for the groceries".

There are a lot of foreign pro basketball players who are the best in their league, but couldn't make the transition to the NBA.

If you don't give a foreign coach a fair chance to succeed by making sure he/she/it has enough experience to succeed and give the players a fair chance to succeed by making sure a coach can do the job, you could be doing more harm than good for any foreign coaches to come to the NBA.

Start bringing in foreign coaches as assistant coaches, so there will at least a pool of coaches to pick from. If the 1st foreign coach fails horribly, it will a while before another foreign coach will be given a shot at being a NBA head coach.
In every neighborhood there is that group of old ladies that they have the solutions to everyone else's problems, what everyone is doing wrong, and what they need to do and are not shy about sharing their unsolicited opinions...McNabb is that little old lady in the NFL's neighborhood.

Posted Tuesday May 28, 2013, About: Will Jared Allen stay in Minnesota beyond 2013?
A player's contribution to a team isn't always on the field. Allen is huge in the community in the Twin Cities. From his work for "Wounded Warriors" Project to his Night Golfing events to his work with children's charities. If you ever get a chance to talk to him, between his size and his over the top personality, he seems a better fit in the WWE instead of the NFL. He's about having fun as much as possible as often as you can.

When the time does come when he leaves MN, he has already said he won't stop doing the charity work here just because he leaves the Vikings. He might come off as a "meathead", but he's more than that.
Posted Monday May 27, 2013, About: CC admits hard truth for Yankees
You hear the cliche from players all the time that they will do what's best for the team.

There are times when the players aren't playing well and the best thing they could do for the team is to quit playing or go and play for a division rival, but no one ever does
Posted Friday May 24, 2013, About: If Allen's going out, it will be with a mullet
He should try a few new things with the mullet to change it up a bit and have his hair become newsworthy ala Dennis Rodman.

1. Dreadlock the back
2. Do his impression of white college chicks from small towns on spring break and get braids and beads and/or corn rows.
3. Jheri curls
4. Instead of the comb-over, go with the comb-forward
5. Krusty the Clown hair?
6. Charlie Brown hair?
7. "Afro puff" the back?
8. Dennis Rodman Hair Retrospective - each week sport a new 'do that Rodman had in the NBA
9. Princess Leia "buns"?
10. Andre Agassi circa 1991?
Posted Tuesday May 21, 2013, About: Cowboys' Smith battling with family over money
I have a sibling who puts money before blood. He has repeatedly been pestering our mom about getting his inheritence early before our mom passes away. After our mom passes, there is going to be a nice inheritence for all of us...except for one.

Our selfish brother asked our mom for the inhertience early. She then promptly donated 20% of his inheritence to the DNC in his name (He is a staunch Republican). Then next time he asked about his inheritence, she donated another 20% in his name to a group that supports gay marriage (he is as anti-gay as they come). My mom said that if he asks again about his inheritence, she will donate the remainder of his inheritience to PETA in his name (He hates PETA).
Posted Tuesday May 21, 2013, About: Cowboys' Smith battling with family over money
You can only imagine what it's like for person who comes into money, to have their family and friends feel they are owed money by that person. One of the benefits of making a lot of money in a short amount of time is you know who your true friends are...they are the ones that don't ask for money and when they are offered it, they turn it down.
Posted Sunday May 19, 2013, About: Donte Stallworth claims CIA questioned him
"Y'all think I'm joking? They rolled right up on me and I hadn't been there for more than 2 minutes, tops"

We do think you're joking because we would expect the CIA to "roll up" on an unknown person who appears to be doing surveillance on CIA HQ in less then 2 minutes.

This is like walking into a store, acting suspicious on purpose, and then complain when the staff talks to you because they thought you were acting suspicious.
Posted Monday May 13, 2013, About: Maloofs intent on Seattle
Not Letting a pro franchise team leave town is always cheaper than getting awarded an expansion team, or moving in another team later on.

The Mall of America was the reason the MN North Stars left town. THe Owners of the North Stars said they needed a new arena to remain profitable, but the owners of the Met Center where the Stars played sold the land to the developers of MoA, and MN didn't have enough time to get a new arena like the team owners wanted, and had no choice but to let them leave.

By the time it was said and done, The MN Wild cost 3 times as much to buy an expansion franchise and build the same new arena the North Stars said they needed to stay. The State didn't want to spend the money in the early 90's to build a new arena, but by the late 90's, the state was more than willing to spend whatever it took to get the NHL back in MN.

This is what Seattle is going thru now. They didn't want to spend the money for a new stadium at the time, but look at the amount of money they are willing to spend now to get the NBA back in Seattle.

It's the owners who vote to allow the sale of a team, not Stern. It's their way of making sure that the boat isn't rocked by an owner who puts the players and fans first and money last. They don't even need to give you a reason for the veto of the sale. The background checks on any potential owners is absuditily deep. An owner's group for another sport was turned down because of one of the ex-wives of one of the partners was questionable.

Posted Wednesday May 08, 2013, About: Are the Raiders wrong for making Matt Flynn the starter?
If it's make sense, easy and will bring the desired results, then the Raiders want nothing to do with it.

No matter how bad it gets for any other team, they can put a smile on their face and think to themselves "at least we're not the Raiders"
