Darren Daulton: “I Can Assure You There’s Probably No One In Any Sport That Has Taken More Drugs Than I Have.”

Monday, June 29th, 2009

The new leader in the clubhouse for 2009 quote of the year, Darren Daulton.  I'm guessing Todd Marinovich might want to argue with this claim.  Man has Daulton lived an interesting life.  From marrying the original Hooters girl Lynne Austin, to leading Macho Row of the 1993 NL Champion Phillies, ...

Jordan Hill: I Watched D’Antoni Mold Stoudemire

Monday, June 29th, 2009

I don't know many Knicks fans personally, but I would think every single one of them was hoping the Golden State Warriors were going to pass on Stephen Curry at the 7 spot, thus, allowing him to fall in to NY's lap.  Instead, the Warriors chose Curry and the son ...

Sam Presti Explains Decision To Pass On Ricky Rubio For James Harden

Monday, June 29th, 2009

With the 2009 NBA Draft over with, let's continue our post mortem here on Sports Radio Interviews by checking in with Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti. The Thunder were one of the league's worst teams in 2008-2009, winning just 23 games. Considering the start they had though in ...

Rod Thorn Talks Draft, T-Will and Vinsanity

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Rod Thorn has always been an impressive evaluator of talent, regardless of whether or not the Nets have been a spectacular team on the court; most of the time, during his tenure, they have been, but there've been some down years. So it makes sense to talk with him about the ...

Steve Kerr Continues The Destruction Of The Phoenix Suns

Monday, June 29th, 2009

The door is shut for the Phoenix Suns.  And there's two people to blame:  Steve Kerr and owner Robert Sarver.  Kerr for trading for Shaq and forcing Mike D'Antoni out the door and Sarver for being extremely cheap and illogical.  While I was watching the NBA draft, ESPN had all ...

DeMar DeRozan: I Was 100% Sure Toronto Was Going To Take Me

Monday, June 29th, 2009

This doesn't happen often: an American is really excited about playing for the Toronto Raptors.  Yes, you can queue the, 'So, now it's inevitable he'll get great and leave' jokes.  In a city where it seems every great Raptor player wants out (see: Carter, McGrady, possibly Bosh, and to a ...

Ronnie Brown Checks In As Training Camp Looms Closer

Monday, June 29th, 2009

After injuries slowed him down in 2007, Miami Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown returned to form in 2008 and helped his team improve from just a 1 win team the year before to a playoff squad last season. Brown was named to the Pro Bowl in 2008 after rushing for ...

Tyler Hansbrough: Indiana’s My Kind Of Place

Monday, June 29th, 2009

It's hard to doubt Tyler Hansbrough after all the criticisms he's thrown right back in people's faces as a college player.  That being said, the man needs to expand his skill set (priority number one is a mid-range game), but what he's got going for him is a tireless work ...

Terrence Williams to the Nets on Draft Day

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Many people, me for one, thought Terrence Williams was the best athlete coming out of college. Sure Blake Griffin had the most basketball talent, but if you ever saw a Louisville game last year, Williams had amazing hops and showed that he could guard almost any 2 or 3 position ...

Gerald Henderson, The Surprising Dukie Turned Bobcat

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Gerald Henderson is in a weird situation, because he's a former Duke Blue Devil and he's now a Charlotte Bobcat. This is only bizarre because Michael Jordan routinely drafts anyone from Carolina, and Tyler Hansbrough was available at the time that the Cats took Henderson. But whatever, it was a smarter ...
