I get knocked down, but I get up again. You’re never going to keep me down! -Chumbawumba
Public Service Announcement: No, we’re not talking about tee-shirts. We’re not like Mr. Hooper. We’re not talking about treasure boating or day sailing. No we’re talking about the real wife beaters. Today we bid adieu to a real wife beater. Today we bid adieu to Bobby Cox. I’ve heard people say, “Bobby Cox did it the right way.” If by the right way you mean getting arrested by police at his home, jailed overnight and being charged with simple battery after punching his wife and pulling her hair, then ya, sure. Pulling her hair? C’mon you sissy, knock it off. After the jump, we’ll look at other members of the All Wife Beating team. Read More »

This is how you remind me of what I really am. This is how you remind me of what I really am. -Nickleback
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Rookie rookie, who gets the cookie. Stevie, that’s who. Stevie’s the big winner. Stevie wins. First, they were jibbering about Brandon Jennings. Then, they were jabbering about Tyreke Evans. Jibbering and jabbering. Blibbering and blabbering. But, outta nowhere, a Cinderella story. A former Davidson Wildcat, now, about to become the Rookie of the Year. It looks like a mirac… It’s in the hole! It’s in the hole! It’s in the hole! Read More »

Attention: “It’ s been a while, but man am I glad to be home.” That surely was the thought running through the head of Allen Iverson as he was announced prior to the Sixers contest against the Denver Nuggets on Monday evening. The Wachovia Center was rocking with a sellout crowd for the first time all year and at one point, I was almost certain my television set was going to shake clean off the dresser. When Philly gets a rocking, don’t come a knocking. Seeing Iverson back with the Sixers was truly a passionate moment both in sports history and for the City of Brotherly Love as well.

The city of Philadelphia has endured success in the past two years on the baseball diamond with the Phillies winning a World Series and making it back to the October classic this season. The Eagles always play tough in the highly touted NFC East Conference. Now, the Sixers in the Atlantic Division of the NBA have endured ups and downs with some talented players, but can’t get over the hump. The Sixers have started this season with a 5-13 record and are in the midst of a seven game losing streak.

The saga has supposedly come to an end for the sinister basketball icon we call A.I. In a recent post from Stephen A. Smith on his personal website, Iverson told the Philadelphia Inquirer he wanted to announce his plans to retire from the NBA. Holy cow! Looking back on this one man wrecking crew, there is one word that comes to my head. Flash. Iverson dazzled defenders with his silky smooth handles and dropped buckets whenever he wanted. The 5’11” or 6’0” guard played hard on a nightly basis and often played through his injuries. That made it clear he had a true compassion and respect for the game that made him famous.

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! A short one today. A real short one. I got some traveling to do and so do you. After reading what I read over at Red’s Army, and various other rumblings on Twitter, I just had to put this up. Allen Iverson. The Answer. But not for the Celtics. My Plea to Danny Ainge. Please don’t do it. Please baby, please baby, baby baby please! Don’t do it. Mars Blackmon style. I want to win as much as the next guy, but not this cat. Please baby, please baby, baby baby please!

I like Slam dunks take me to the hoop. My favorite play is the alley oop. I like the pick-and-roll, I like the give-and-go. Cause it’s basketball, uh, Mister Kurtis Blow. -Kurtis Blow
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! NBA action. NBA satisfaction. NBA coming attractions. It’s finally here. Fantastic! I love this game! Yes fans, the NBA season is upon us. Like my main man the Big Fundamental always says: “Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best.” Who’s good? Who’s better? Who’s best? Read More »

During the offseason, there were a handful of other teams reportedly interested in acquiring aging point guard Allen Iverson. Miami, Charlotte and the New York Knicks were among the front runners for A.I., but the issue with Iverson going to any of those teams would be his willingness to come off the bench for an entire season.

Twitter is aswirl. Is he? Isn’t he? TMZ says he is. According to their website, TMZ reports, “Michael Jackson suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon and paramedics were unable to revive him. We’re told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back.” The LA Times confirms it. A sad day indeed. The King of Pop is dead. Long live the king! Allen Iverson, for one, will miss him:

Celtics 128 Suns 108: If this is life without KG then the Celtics should be ok. OK Corral that is. Shooting the lights out that is. Yesterday afternoon, the Celtics shot 63 percent from the field. Yowza! That’s pretty good. How good? I’m glad you asked. Read More »
