Et tu, Larry?

Et tu, Larry?

You know, I'm having a hard enough time coping with Kobe Bryant's seemingly eventual championship (and the onslaught of Laker trolls that will hit this site)… the last thing I needed was to hear Larry Bird's current favorite player is a Laker. Johnson: Larry Bird told me that Kobe Bryant is his favorite player. How [...]

We can thank Clifford Ray for Dwight Howard

Photo from reader Jesse Haley's parade photos on Flickr Clifford Ray and Robert Parish run a big man camp every year… and one of Cliff's former pupils is Dwight Howard.  With Dwight now in the spotlight and about to lead his team to a sweep of the Lakers (hey, I can dream), Cliff has reason [...]

Here's what LeBron James had to say about abruptly leaving the court following the Game 6 loss to Orlando: "It's hard for me to congratulate somebody after you just lose to them," he said. "I'm a winner. It's not being a poor sport or anything like that. If somebody beats you up, you're not going [...]

Nike’s gonna need new puppets

A funny thing happened on the way to Kobe vs. LeBron in the finals. The Orlando Magic figured out how to play good basketball.  Actually, they figured it out during the Celtics series when they stopped just bombing from 3 and got aggressive.  Now, Orlando is one win away from eliminating the Cavs, and giving [...]

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

I told ya'll the other day that we find it really disrespectful that everybody seems to be pulling for LeBron and Kobe to get to the Finals. Every time I look at TV, it seems like that's all anybody is talking about. It's like nobody is even giving us a shot at winning this series [...]

Why The Olympics Are a Pain

Why The Olympics Are a Pain

One thing that's caught my attention in the conference finals (aside from the dramatic finishes and clutch shooting) is that LeBron James and Kobe Bryant are exhausted. LBJ had to be helped off the court after cramping up in Game 1. Kobe looked like he was going to pass out during last night's post game [...]
