Last time, Kenny Anderson lamented that he might have to sell a car from his fleet. Last time, Patrick Ewing quipped, “Sure, we make a lot of money, but we spend a lot, too.” This time, let’s see what Kobe Bryant has to say:

“With a true champion face to face with his darkest hour, he will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, and fights, and then fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies. And my ass ain’t no pussy. My ass is a f*cking champion.” – Kenny Powers
With the dust having settled on yet another NBA season and Dan Gilbert and the Cleveland Cavaliers Mark Cuban and the Mavericks returning to Dallas with the Larry O’Brien trophy for the first time in franchise history, it felt appropriate to join in on the collective nationwide beating of the dead horse that is Lebron James and the Miami Heat. And yes, for the record, this year was as close as the Cavs will ever get to a championship of their own in any of our lifetimes. In fact, I suggest that Cleveland throws whatever the opposite of a ticker-tape parade is to dishonor Lebron, because unless the NCAA ignores the used car lot over at Ohio State, it is going to be a while before anyone is celebrating another champion in the Plum City or the rest of the state for that matter.

I love me some Jason Terry! There were doubters. Doubters day in and day outers. There were words bandied abouters. Like my main man Jimmy Conway always says, “No, no, no, no, no. You insulted him a little bit. You got a little bit out of order yourself.” But Jason Terry had the last word. Mark Cuban: “The media was killing him: ‘He can’t perform in the playoffs. He’s not clutch in the playoffs. He’s too this, he’s too that.’ He shoved it up everybody’s ass.” Yes he did Mark, yes he did. He shoved it up everybody’s ass by scoring a game-high 27 points in Game 6 after netting 21 points in Game 5. You know what that makes boys and girls? That makes history. Jason Terry just became the first player to score more than 20 points off the bench in each of two consecutive games during an NBA Finals series since Jim King of the San Francisco Warriors did it against the 76ers in Games 3 (28 points) and 4 (23 points) of the 1967 Finals. Manu Ginobili never done did that. Kevin McHale never done did that. Bobby Jones and Freddy Downtown Brown never done did that. The Jet done did.

On May 9, 1974, 25-year-old Bruce Springsteen played at the Harvard Square Theater in Cambridge. Although popular with the college crowd in the Northeast, Springsteen was not yet a star. That night, he and the E Street Band opened for Bonnie Raitt. The influential music critic Jon Landau was in the audience. Overwhelmed by what he had heard, Landau wrote, “I saw my rock and roll past flash before my eyes. I saw something else: I saw rock and roll’s future and its name is Bruce Springsteen.” Last night, May 12, 2011, the Miami Heat vanquished the mighty mighty Boston Celtics at American Airlines Arena in Miami. Overwhelmed but what I saw, I write, “I saw my basketball past flash before my eyes. I saw something else: I saw basketball’s future and its name is the Miami Heat.” Read More »

Watch above as an embarrased Bulls fan takes off his cowboy hat with a quickness when he notices he is on camera. Haven’t we seen this kid before? Doesn’t he look a little something like that guy to your left? And not for nothin’, that reminds of a story that goes a little something like this. One evening, when Karl Malone was on the Lakers, he was wearing a cowboy hat and boots. Now apparently Kobe’s wife took notice of this and asked Karl, “Hey, cowboy, what are you hunting?” To which Karl replied,”I’m hunting for little Mexican girls.” Little Mexican girls. Oh that Karl.

Ok, here we go! Like my main man Popeye always says, “I’ve had all I can stands, I can’t stands no more.” How many times do we have to see it? How many times do we have to see D-Wade flying to the hole? See him death defying to the hole? See him electrifying to the hole? How many time do we have to see Delonte West’s booty call’s son get into the lane? Get into the lane without shame? Again and again? Until he’s drinking champagne? Enough is enough. The Boston Celtics need to get tough. Rough and tough. HR Puffnstuff. Can’t get a little ’cause you cant get enough. Read More »
With one game left on the March Madness schedule we thought it would be appropriate to look back on the past 4 weeks and breakdown what worked, and what didn’t, from the CBS/Turner broadcast conglomerate.
First, it should be pointed out that the 2011 NCAA tournament enjoyed its highest overall television ratings in the past 17 years. This is obviously due to the combination of games broadcast across all of the Turner cable partners.

Back by popular demand! Just in case you didn’t know. Maybe you didn’t hear about it, you’ve been away a long time. They didn’t go up there and tell you. They didn’t go up there and tell you the Brass Bonanza Award is given to the week’s biggest loser. Brass Bonanza was the Hartford Whalers fight song. Need I say more? This weeks winner, er loser, is Carmelo Anthony. Hooray Carmelo Anthony! Read More »

(TNT 8PM ET) I have to watch this game because like my main man Carl Spackler always says, “To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit – ever.” My enemy is the Chicago Bulls. They are what stands between my beloved Celtics and another trip to the NBA Finals. They never quit – ever. They didn’t quit last night. In a 40-point rout that was their ninth win in 10 games, the Bulls shot 61.3 percent from the floor. Eight Chicago players reached double-figures. All eight of those players shot more than 50 percent from the field. Yowza! Know this: In only one other game in franchise history (and that game was played 20 years and a day ago) have eight Bulls players scored in double-figures while hitting more than half of their field-goal attempts. On March 20, 1991, Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were among the eight Chicago players who turned the trick, and less than three months later, they won the team’s first NBA championship. I’m just saying. I’m just saying, get your popcorn ready!
