Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

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).

He’s the Best Ever, But Not at What You Think

As is often the case when a superstar retires, analysts, fans, heck everyone begins to analyze where that particular superstar fits in the pantheon of all-time greats. When Shaquille O’Neal announced his retirement from the NBA this week after 19 seasons discussions of his place in history among centers began almost immediately (personally I have him as #5 behind Wilt; Bill, obviously Russell and not Walton; Kareem; and Hakeem). But there is one thing Shaq did better than any of those players and better than any player thus far in NBA history: manipulate and manage the media. Read the rest of this entry »

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 Jimmer Fredette gets to take his classes online because he’s NOW a distraction at BYU.  How is he a distraction now that the season is over?  That makes no sense.  Get that ethics panel together and get back to us with a better excuse.

Kobe got fined 100K for calling a referee a derogatory word.  The fine is definitely warranted but don’t you kinda think if it were a lesser player and the playoffs weren’t starting there would be a suspension involved?

Nobody cares who wins the Atlanta/Orlando playoff series.  As a matter of fact, if there was a way for both teams to lose a lot of people would be happy.

Derrick Rose is good.  Real good.

The best NC State and Debbie Yow could do is Mark Gottfried?! Talk about settling.

Robin told you Debbie Yow was gangsta!

The NCAA Men’s Final needs to take notes from the Women’s, not just for physicality and points but the time aired. The Women’s Final ended right around 11 pm, perfect.

Is Skylar Diggins of Notre Dame the hottest bachelorette right now? She was being sweet talked by Weezy and Chris Brown.
