Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Rest In Peace Tiaina Baul “Junior” Seau, Jr.  Junior’s family has agreed to allow his brain to be studied.  There may be so much we can learn about mental illness and concussions from his passing. Oh, and ESPN, you can stop showing the clip of his grieving mother any time now.

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.

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

Isn’t it interesting that as soon as it was clear Tiger was out of the running at the Masters the announcers began to elevate Phil while downing Tiger?

Congrats to Bubba Watson for winning the green jacket on the 2nd playoff hole.  We bet you never associated the name Bubba with golf.  Of course the redneck jokes have already started about what he’ll select for the Masters champion dinner.

Bobby Petrino was in a motorcycle accident while giving a ride to his 25 year old mistress, who’d just been hired in the Arkansas athletic department the week prior.  We’re sure Atlanta Falcons fans are calling this entire incident karma.

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

David Stern and the NBA were smart to figure out a way to get Jeremy Lin involved in the All-Star weekend.  The Rookie/Sophomore game was the most watched since 2004.  A few guys named Wade, Bosh, James, and Anthony participated in that one.

It really is a shame that Slam Dunk Contest got top billing on All-Star Saturday Night. Do you even remember who won and why?

In case you forgot, Jeremy Evans (Utah Jazz) won by jumping over Kevin Hart in the final round.  Yes, that Kevin Hart.  The one we can all jump over.

Whoever thinks the coaches have it easier would have to change their mind after Sunday’s NFL games.

Sean Payton, head coach of the New Orleans Saints, was ran over by one of his own players on the sideline and suffered some broken bones and a torn MCL, yet still pushed through the pain and remained on the field to coach through the first half.

In that same game Tampa Bay’s DB coach, Jimmy Lake, tore his patellar tendon celebrating an interception. Read the rest of this entry »

Well Dirk was able to avenge his demons and go to Miami and win a Championship.  Will we say the same for LeBron in a few years?

Chris Bosh was the butt of many jokes this season but his break down at the end of the game on the way back to the locker room showed that he at least cared.

LeBron James needs new PR people.  He doesn’t know how to deflect criticism.  This comment may haunt him for a long while: Read the rest of this entry »

The NBA, It’s Flop-Tastic!

This year’s NBA playoffs have been one of the most entertaining in recent memory.  Every round has had spectacular matchups and for once the performances have lived up to the hype.  But there is one dark cloud that seems to hang over every single game: flopping.  At least a few times a game you see a player get slightly brushed by another as he drives to the hoop and fly halfway across the floor as if he’s been shot.  It used to be flopping was a European trait, made popular by Vlade Divac who might be considered the king of the flop (and at 7 feet looked ridiculous floundering about while being hit by a much smaller man).
