From NBA Cheerleader to NBA Scout

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Can you imagine if one of the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders starting scouting potential draft picks for Jerry Jones?  Or maybe the Philly Phanatic doing advance scouting for the Phillies during the playoffs?  Yeah, me neither.  Maybe I'm a little late to the dance on this story, but I just heard ...

Alex Mack Joins The Cleveland Browns

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

If you are Alex Mack, are you upset that you went higher in the 2009 NFL Draft than anybody thought you might? A whole bunch of mock drafts had Mack being drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers at #32 for example. But in a move that can't exactly be described as ...

B.J. Raji Addresses the Drug Rumors, the Laziness Rumors and the Warren Sapp Comparisons

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

B.J. Raji nearly got screwed by the kind folks at Sports Illustrated when they released a false report (NFLDraftBible style son!) about Raji testing positive on a drug test. Fortunately, the smoke cleared (pun intended) before the draft and Raji didn't fall too far, as the Green Bay Packers picked ...

Rick Carlisle On Beating The Spurs, Denver And Dirk

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

This is not an image we're used to seeing.  There are plenty of recent NBA playoff series that stand out in my mind.  Lakers-Suns had that beauty, so many Suns-Spurs battles, even Cleveland-Boston last year, but the one that sticks out the most is the Mavericks-Spurs 7-gamer in '06.  Six ...

Carlos Boozer Is Likely Opting Out Of His Contract

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Carlos Boozer was always thought to be opting out of the last year of his contract which would pay him $12 million plus for next season.  The man obviously wants a long-term deal which will score him muchos dineiros.  When he went down with a knee injury, forcing him to ...

Rory Sabbatini Talks About Quail Hollow, Probably While Wearing Stupid Pants

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Rory Sabbatini is always controversial. And slow. And obnoxious. And dressed in fugly clothes. But mostly obnoxious. And this week, he's in Charlotte as well, playing in the Quail Hollow golf tournament. Yes, at this point I could rant more about Sabbatini. I won't though, because then I would just be ...

Mark Sanchez Is Already B-Deep in the New York Media Scene

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Mark Sanchez is quite the charmer. It stands to reason that, providing he's not a total and complete egg, he will be very popular in New York as the Jets new quarterback. Of course, that's based primarily on the fact that the doesn't seem fazed by the media circus in the ...

Bill Polian Surprises With Selection Of Donald Brown

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Those who know better realize it's never a good idea to judge a Bill Polian draft class until at least two years have passed. This year's should be no different. Many pundits thought the Colts were in the market for a RB in this year's draft. Very few however identified ...

Danny Ainge’s First Interview Since His Heart Attack

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Boston Celtics General Manager suffered what the team described as a minor heart attack two weeks ago.  He was released from hospital a few days later and is doing fine now.  The scare for the 50-year-old and his family is an event which they have gone through involving other relatives, ...

Who Cares What He’s Talking About, It’s Simeon Rice!

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

I seriously wake up every day hoping that former NFL great Simeon Rice is going to be on the radio somewhere in America that day. It's just that entertaining when he does get on the air and offer up his nuggets of wisdom on...well, on everything. Radio jocks love him ...
