One Reason to Love Stephen Jackson

One Reason to Love Stephen Jackson

“You’re on borrowed time”

“You’re on borrowed time”

That's Ray Allen's approach to appreciating whatever moments he's got left in the NBA… and tuning out talk of the contract extension he wants. “It’s interesting how I approach training camp as an older man in relation to my career,” Allen said. “I think Kevin (Garnett) takes the same mindset and Paul (Pierce) has the [...]

Unless Ron-Ron goes absolutely loco, the Lakers success will largely depend on the production/evolution of Jordan Farmar and Andrew Bynum, according to ESPN's Ric [...]

Ron Artest Thinks He Signed With 90s Bulls

Via Sports Radio Interviews: “The opportunity was unbelievable.  I get a chance to play with Kobe, Michael Jordan’s my favorite player, Kobe’s probably the closest person to Michael Jordan, so I get to kind of relive that whole Chicago Bulls thing growing up, that was my favorite team.  So, Phil Jackson, you got Kobe Bryant, [...]

The Week in Review

The Week in Review

We started the week with John trying to capitalize monetarily on Stephon Marbury's insanity. But that was kind compared to the butcher job Yahoo! Sports did on Steph.

I’m Trying to Stop Hating, But Kobe Makes It So Easy

Via Deadspin: Kobe Bryant thinks he's bigger than the mayor of Los Angeles. And you know what? He's right. Divas don't share the spotlight with anyone. L.A. somehow scraped together enough cash for a victory parade this week, but it started an hour late. Whence the delay? A catfight between Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa (best known [...]
