Tony Allen Is Frustrated

Tony Allen is apparently a couple of weeks away from returning.  And as usual with him, the injury that knocked him out came when he was playing well, which frustrates him. "My [left knee] injury was a freak accident," Allen said. "[The thumb injury] was a freak accident. The knickknack injuries, those are just regular... [More]

Better Late Than Never, I Guess

Remember that Blazers game where they scored on a 6-on-5 play and got to keep the points?  The NBA got around to changing the rule. If a team is given a technical foul for having too many players, the non-offending team can choose to accept or nullify the action that took place before the whistle... [More]

Did We Watch the Same Game?

Some dude named Tim Potvak of Yahoo! is giving a Jenna Jameson quality rubdown to Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic. The Orlando Magic didn’t just send a late-season message to the defending champion Boston Celtics on Wednesday night. They left them with a not-so-subtle reminder for their almost-inevitable second-round playoff matchup. Dwight Howard has... [More]

The Real Reason We Lost To Orlando

Early in last night's game, Rajon Rondo was doing his usual thing:  slicing through the defense, reaching way out with his right hand to lay the ball in, and hitting the floor.  Somehow, Dwight Howard stepped on his left ankle, keeping Rondo in a crumpled heap for a few minutes before he gingerly got up. ...

Deja Vu

Just like their last loss to the Magic, the Celtics played like crap for 3 quarters, rallied in the 4th only to fall short in the final seconds. Dwight Howard (24 pts, 21 reb) was an unstoppable force in the paint – until the 4th quarter where he went 0-4. Paul Pierce (26 pts, 19... [More]

Kobe’s Wife is a Beotch

Since I'm getting really tired watching the Magic drain open 3s and Dwight Howard grab every rebound, I figured I'd post this tidbit about Vanessa Bryant: Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa are being sued by their former housekeeper, who claims Vanessa was incredibly abusive — even demanding that she put her hand in a...

Does Anyone Here Speak Starbury?

I've spent the past 8 hours with a Marine corps of translators, and none of us are quite sure where Stephon Marbury was going with this: “I know I’m capable of having games where I can score 30 or 40 points,” he said. “It’s just tough to get a lot of time on a team... [More]
