Paul George’s outfit far worse than defense on final play

Paul George’s outfit far worse than defense on final play

While Indiana coach Frank Vogel is taking major heat for sitting Roy Hibbert on the final play of last night’s Pacers/Heat game, it was Paul George’s poor defense on LeBron James that allowed the game winning layup. But enough about basketball. George’s biggest mistake happened when he packed this: I’d wear George’s getup instead of [...]

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. I’m still waiting for one of these guys to show up dressed like this: This silliness has to end soon, [...]
