Grant Hill signed a $93 million contract back in '00 so even his great-grandchildren will be well taken care of, he was a 7-time NBA All-Star and he'll always be one of the greatest college basketball players in NCAA history. But even I'm sick and tired of hearing about Grant Hill being injured. So if he's serious about retiring now he should just do it. He'd make a great coach tho'.

Shocking! But the Heat have no one to blame but themselves because no way do you miss 19 free throws in a game and expect to win. So now with times being what they are and the Heat a game away from going on vacation, Pat Riley may want to look into hiring Ed Palubinskas in order to save his season..

Not that anyone should really care about this sort of thing, but word has it that rapper/actor Lil' Romeo will soon be headed to USC to play for their basketball team. Now if he was going there to be the team's mascot I'd understand, but if this news is really true, does that mean that he can really play? Or is daddy Master P pulling some major strings here? Stay tuned.

With his torrid start to the season, the sports media is doing a great job reminding us of what a great player this Alex Rodriguez guy is. But we sort of already knew that Arod is pretty good. So maybe someone needs to remind the media nuts that the 3rd place Yankees suck right now, Mariano Rivera has been looking kinda human of late and the Yanks are in danger of being swept in Beantown this weekend. Nevermind the fact that as the Mariners, Rangers and George Steinbrenners Yanks have known for three years now, having Arod (no matter how terrific his numbers are) on your team doesn't equate to winning world championships. And last time I checked isn't winning what it's supposed to be all about?

Crawford deserved his suspension. His actions, which included challenging Tim Duncan to a fight, were over the top. Yet, I never thought that Stern would come down on him like he did. Good for Stern and good for the NBA.

MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson appeared in court Thursday and learned he will go on trial Aug. 20 on charges of drug possession and driving under the influence of
Tyson was fresh out of a California rehabilitation facility and said very little during the five-minute
"Yes, ma'am" were his only words, uttered after Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Sherry Stephens asked if he agreed to the trial date, which was pushed back 30 days at his attorneys'
Tyson did not speak outside the courtroom, where reporters peppered him with questions and followed him to a Cadillac Escalade.
"We're very pleased with Mike's progress in treatment," said Richard Schonfeld, one of Tyson's lawyers. "He's 72 days sober. We're proud of him."

"I enjoyed my year here at Texas," Durant said in a statement released before his news conference. "All the fans and everyone here at Texas made me feel right at home, considering I was so far from home. I will always be a Longhorn and never forget what the people of Texas have done for me."
After an All-American season in which he swept the major player of the year awards, few expected Durant to play another season in college.
Now the question is whether he'll be the first pick of the June 28 draft. Durant and Ohio State's freshman center Greg Oden -- who has not yet said if he'll leave college -- are considered the
likely first two picks.
"He's made history," Texas coach Rick Barnes said Monday night at the team banquet. "No one's done what he did this year. He swept every major award as a freshman. It's a year we may not ever see
again by anybody. It's remarkable."
Players have until April 29 to declare for the June 28 draft in New York.

Good start to the season. Glavine pitched great through the 6th inning, they got timely hits, sterling defense and Willie Randolph did the right thing by keeping Paul Lo Duca in the two hole. Can't believe that drunk Tony LaRussa had the nerve call Beltran "foolish" for successfully attempting to throw out David Eckstien at home in the 6th, but of course LaRussa thinks that he knows everything.
