With the first and second picks in the 2008 Draft, the Miami Heat select…?

You might think the NBA season is over now that the Boston Celtics have earned the franchise’s 17th championship, but there is no time to rest. In case you’ve forgotten, the Draft is right around the corner, Thursday to be exact, meaning there’s a whole lotta wheelin’ and dealin’ going on. Actually, there has been […]

Odds and Ends: Chris Simms is a cry baby

Chris Simms is mad as hell and he’s not going to take it anymore. The former Texas quarterback ripped Jon Gruden and virtually ended his relationship with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday when he claimed to have become a “hostage” of the franchise. “I feel like I’m being held hostage,” Simms said. “I hate […]

Around the Rim: A tale of two kings

1. The new king of the league He’s got the rings and now he’s got the trophy. For the first time in his career, Kobe Bryant can officially be called the MVP. It took 12 seasons of patiently waiting for his turn in the spotlight, but Bryant ran away with the award on Tuesday, taking […]

Around the Rim: Irish eyes are smiling

1. Boston’s bounce back Despite falling behind by as many as 22 points, the Celtics came roaring back on in San Antonio on St. Patrick’s day to defeat the Spurs 93-91. Boston was without Ray Allen for the second consecutive game, but luckily they had Sam Cassell who was more than willing to step up […]

Drew Gooden’s beard is a bet, but the pubic hair patch last year was all his idea

If you’ve been paying attention to the NBA this season then you’ve noticed the Bulls Drew Gooden’s mangled mess of a beard. And if you’ve really been paying attention then you’ve probably noticed that Gooden isn’t the only one sporting the Billy goat look. In particular, we’re talking about Washington’s DeShawn Stevenson. Turns out the […]

Around the Rim: Hollywood is jumping for joy

1. Little lead, big advantage After winning 18 of their last 22 games, including Tuesday night’s 117-108 victory over Toronto, all the Lakers have to show for their effort is a ½ game lead over the defending champs. But ½ a game in this wild Western Conference race could make all the difference in the […]

Bulls’ mascot says `Screw Oprah’ and heads straight for the Jerry Springer show

Oh how the mighty have fallen. The Chicago Bulls were once a proud, successful franchise capable of dominating the NBA like nobody in recent history. Now, they are just a shell of the team that Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Phil Jackson established. In fact, things have digressed so far downhill that the players aren’t […]

Around the Rim: Running over the competition

1. MVP? Remember back when Andrew Bynum got injured and everyone said the Lakers were doomed to fall apart without their man in the middle? Well, that was 24 games ago and since then all Los Angeles has done is surge to the top of the West by winning 14 of their last 16 games, […]

Around the Rim: Cleveland rocks the trade deadline

1. Wheeling and dealing LeBron James has been begging for some help for quite a while now and on Thursday, he finally got it; just not on offense. The Cavs were part of a three-team, 11-player trade right before the deadline, acquiring Ben Wallace, Joe Smith and a 2nd-round draft pick from the Bulls, along […]

Around the Rim: Heat check

1. J.R. Smith shoots the lights out While the Suns continue rolling right along despite Shaquille O’Neal delaying his debut, the Heat wound up with one of the most versatile players in the game and they still can’t get off the schnide. Of course, Denver was partly responsible for Miami’s 23rd loss in 24 games. […]
