Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports

Andrew Bynum, of the Lakers, recorded a triple-double with a 10 point, 13 rebound, and 10 block performance on Sunday. But does anyone believe he can keep up the intensity on defense?

The Memphis Grizzlies looked to be coasting to a game one blowout victory late Sunday night but the Los Angeles Clippers, led by Nick Young (NICK YOUNG!!), came back from 27 down to win by one.

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

The NFL Pro Bowl was this weekend. The question is: Does anyone care?

Of course it was all offense with the AFC team scoring a record of 59 points.

Brandon Marshall, of the Miami Dolphins, was named the game’s MVP, having quite a stellar game that was quite the opposite of his less than marginal season. Go figure.

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

The screwed up NCAA football postseason can be summed up by the #7 team in the country playing the 6-6 Arizona State Sun Devils in a bowl game on December 22nd.

Kellen Moore finished his college career with a 50-3 record and if he went to a school other than Boise State he may have won a Heisman.

USC QB Matt Barkley decided to stay in school and return for his senior season with Lane Kiffin. But…Kiffin over the NFL? Huh?

The NBA season came back with a bang on Christmas Day and while some things definitely changed (the Mavericks rolling over like dogs to the Heat for example) some things stayed the same:

We are saddened by the resignation of Jim Tressel because it means less hate jokes. We will miss them dearly.

(this is a repost for Alba)

Update: The hate still exists!

In related news, Ohio State’s QB Terrelle Pryor is under further scrutiny by the NCAA for receiving cars and other extra benefits. I bet he really wishes he declared for the draft now (although the supplemental draft is still an option). Read the rest of this entry »

Out With the Old

In 1999, Michael Jordan retired (we are going to just pretend that whole debacle of a comeback with the Washington Wizards never happened, ok) and a big deal was made about who among the current crop of NBA players would replace him.  Many acted as if the NBA would shrivel up and die without his presence.  Considering Jordan was the preeminent player of his time (and to some the best NBA player ever) his absence left large shoes to fill.  Many thought the heir apparent was Kobe Bryant who was three years into his career and seemed to pattern his entire game after Jordan.  Kobe never quite lived up to those lofty expectations but built his own great career and 12 years later, the NBA is undergoing yet another changing of the guard.

So now that Ohio State’s football program is under investigation (again) for selling 50 cars to athletes and their families will they FINALLY get more than a slap on the wrist from the NCAA?

Meanwhile, the hate keeps coming for Jim Tressel (and I don’t blame them). Folks in Michigan are airing their distaste.

Gary Williams retired from the University of Maryland last week.  While we’re genuinely sorry to see him go, it was time as he was not interested in playing today’s game when it came to recruiting. Read the rest of this entry »

Everyone in Chicago better start praying fervently that Derrick Rose can come out of that walking boot and be effective.

At some point, LeBron James or Dwyane Wade is going to have to make a game-winning shot in the last 10 seconds.  It doesn’t really matter how great the rest of the game was if you lose.

Maybe they need to learn from Chris Paul, he sure shows a lot of heart and put that team on his back. But we already knew that.

No matter how you slice it, this was a heck of a shot by Lou Williams to extend the 76ers series with the Miami Heat.
