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…

Sorry Ron Artest World Peace, we don’t believe you when you say this elbow to James Harden’s head was an accident. Most people would stop after an accident and check on the person they hit, not sprint to the other end of the floor to defend themselves in the upcoming fight.

The Charlotte Bobcats have lost 20 games in a row and are on their way to the worst winning percentage in NBA history.  Their owner, Michael Jordan, was one of the most competitive players in history, how can he sleep at night knowing this is his doing?

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.

Let’s Be Honest…

Our unfiltered thoughts on the past week in sports…

The ratings for the NFL Draft dropped from last year.  David Stern needs to take note, if the NFL Draft loses fan interest with labor strife, the NBA would fall completely off the map.

After being drafted overall #1 by the Carolina Panthers, Cam Newton proved his country roots by saying, “it’s not going to be instant like instant grits. It’s going to be like collard greens” with regards to his impact on the team.  Oh Cam.  Something tells me the media is going to LOVE covering him.

I think the display of emotion by Von Miller and Mark Ingram at the NFL Draft was beautiful. Wouldn’t you be feeling some kind of way if you were going to be a millionaire or heard an emotional message from your father in jail? Have a heart folks.

Robin’s Reaction to the NFL Draft

Below are my immediate thoughts on the NFL Draft as it occurred. I wasn’t expecting to watch it but I’m not that into the NBA and nothing else was on (The First 48 was a repeat).

1. Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers

I’m just not feeling Cam Newton anymore and I know I’m not alone. I have a problem with this smug bamma being able to say he’s a Heisman trophy winner, part of a BCS National Championship team, and now #1 draft pick. I am not impressed. Let’s hope he proves me wrong.

2. Von Miller, Denver Broncos

I don’t have a problem with this one. John Elway seemed very impressed with him. I thought it was touching that he showed such emotion. I’m a softie. Those glasses he had on were serious. Additionally, he is the rookie that is a plantiff on the players’ suit against the NFL.

3. Marcell Dareus, Buffalo Bills

I like Marcell, he seems like a great guy and he definitely works hard on the field (he did play for Saban after all). I’m just upset he went to Buffalo. Good luck there man. 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.

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.
