Mike Conley wore a wooden bow tie

Mike Conley wore a wooden bow tie

I like the outfit (for him, not me) but wearing a wooden bow tie is the epitome of trying too hard. As John said to me this morning, “When did the NBA playoffs turn into an experimental Milan runway?” On the bright side, at least Conley isn’t wearing capri suit pants. To think, I used [...]

Lakers season comes crashing to an end

“Not all that glitters is gold.” The season from hell is over. The drama has ceased. All that’s left is ruble. But for the sake of discussion, let’s run it back.

Dwight Howard gets decimated by LA media

How bad is the situation in Los Angeles for Dwight Howard? Not only are the Lakers down 2-0 to the Spurs, but Howard is getting blasted by the media for the lack of impact he’s had in the first two games: Dwight Howard, who could soon sign a $118-million contract to become the Lakers’ next [...]

Better look: LeBron James or Russell Westbrook?

Better look: LeBron James or Russell Westbrook?

LeBron James sported this leafy red sweater following the Heat’s 110-87 win over the Bucks last night. After the Thunder’s 120-91 victory over Houston, Russell Westbrook hit the podium with a sleeveless ensemble and large medallion.

Here’s what Paul Pierce had to say: “I think it will be a little difficult, just because of the physicality of the sport,” said Pierce, who [...]
