Billy Donovan To Coach Orlando Magic?

Makes sense since he'll get paid out of his ass coming off of two national championships and he won't be far from home, but right now Orlando sucks and does Billy really want to deal with the rigors on the NBA?

Kobe Wants Out of Hollywood

Well, it took him long enough to admit how much he misses Shaq. But the bottom line is that the Lakers are a decent center (sorry, but no one can win an NBA championship with Kwame Brown, don't believe me just ask Michael Jordan) away from really contending because Kobe is that good and Odom, Luke, et al, make for a decent squad. So instead of whining Kobe should be pushing to have his input voiced in the upcoming draft and go from there.

Josh Hancock's Family Sues

And in the process blames everyone but Josh (who wasn't a first time drunk and was talking on his cell as well as not wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash that killed him) for being dead.

Elijah Dukes Threatens To Kill Wife & Kids

Some Tampa Bay Devil Rays outfielder made a promise to put his wife and kids permanently out of submission the other day. Apparently, this isn't the first time Elijah Dukes has gotten in trouble for altercations with his wife, plus the guy allegedly has fathered some kids out of wedlock and his pops is in jail for killing a guy who sold his wife some fake crack.

Forget baseball, this guy needs help and fast.

You Must Take Greg Oden

There doesn't need to be any debate. Whoever ends up getting the first pick tonight had better take Greg Oden tonight. It would literally be criminal not to.

The Conspiracy To Get Tim Duncan His 4th Ring

No Mavs. A BS suspension again the Suns. And the Utah Jazz? Please.
If I were the Pistons I'd be very worried about what David Stern has in store next.

Sorry, No Triple Crown Again This Year

Street Sense sure did give it a valiant try, but I guess Curlin wanted it just a little more. Great race tho'!

Rockets Fire Jeff Van Gundy

Well, when you're blessed with Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming, you gotta' do better than 3 straight first-round playoff exits. But if the Nets lose tonight and Lawrence Frank still gets to keep his job, than you just know that coaching jobs in the NBA are pretty much based on how much Jason Kidd likes you rather than how good a coach you are.

Lastings Milledge "Bend Ya Knees"

Filip Bondy (who I normally disagree with) makes an excellent point about how Mets execs seem to be making a bigger deal about Lastings Milledge rap career than their steroid problem.
You can listen to Manny D.'s (feat. Lastings Milledge aka L. Millz) "Bend Ya Knees" HERE.

Some Common Sense, Please!

Stu Jackson and the NBA can be as consistent as they want, but this is the NBA playoffs, Robert Horry started the whole thing and no punches were thrown. Bottom line, suspending Stoudemire and Biaw amounts to nothing but a dumb decision and if the Spurs win this series, someone should place an asterisk to it.

Kermit Washington be damned.

Don't Mess With Steve Nash

Of all people, I wouldn't expect Robert Horry to throw such a cheap shot the way he did at Steve Nash last night. Too bad for the Suns, Horry's stupidity (as Sir Charles noted after the game) could cost them Amare Stoudemire and Boris Diaw in Game 5, both for leaving the bench after Nash got whacked.

Dumb rule if I ever saw one, I still recall what it did to the Knicks not too long ago.

The Kidd Factor Pulls Nets Within A Game

Jason Kidd is yet another example of the kind of point guard Stephon Marbury will never be: a winner. This doesn't mean that the Nets will beat the Cavs, but with Kidd in there at least it'll be a competitive series.

Pistons Are Looking Like Champs

Seriously, I thought Pistons-Bulls would go at least 6 games esp. after the way the Baby Bulls took care of the Heat. But after last night's comeback victory, is it safe to say that Detroit is looking like world-beaters right now?

Of course, there's always Lebron.

Curt Schilling Disses Barry Bonds

Schilling's well-known for having a big mouth, but this is pretty harsh stuff. This should make the Giants visit to Fenway Park later this year very, very interesting.

Diego Corrales Dies In Motorcycle Crash

A truly a great champion. R.I.P.

David Wells Quote of the Day!

"I don't think I would ever do it because of the fact I personally think it would disrespect the team and your teammates," Wells told the Florida Sun-Sentinel. "You look at the other players. How are they going to respect you? What are they going to think if you're not there pulling for the team? That's not the Yankee way. The Yankees have changed."

- current San Diego Padres and ex-Yankees pitcher David Wells on language in Roger Clemens contract that would allow him to not attend road trips in which he isn't scheduled to pitch.

75% Of Blacks Support Bonds

Interesting poll done by ABC and ESPN on Barry Bonds, steroids and fan reaction to his soon breaking Hank Aaron's all-time home-run record. Personally, I've never bought into Bonds knowingly doing steroids, but I still wish he had stayed retired only because to me the record should always belong to Hammerin' Hank.

My Money's On De Le Hoya Tonight

I'm not really an Oscar De La Hoya fan, but I'm still going to pick him to pull a huge upset tonight. Something tells me that he has it in him and frankly speaking, as good as he is, Mayweather's never fought anyone on Oscar's level. By the way, props to HBO for promoting this fight with that 4-part series leading up to the bout, it was both funny and engaging.

The Greatest Upset Ever?

To me, the more games you have to play the harder it is to pull off on upset in the NBA playoffs. Plus, considering the fact that the Mavericks won 67 regular season games this year, that they made to the Finals last year and everybody and their mother had them winning it all this year . . . than yes, this should go down as the greatest NBA playoffs upset ever.

Stuart Scott Is An Idiot

Don't get me wrong because generally I like Stuart Scott and his hip-hop style of broadcasting (hey, from time to time I even watch "Stump The Schwab"), but to make a remark like "I'll take Pacman's indiscretions over that of Imus" is just plain dumb. Let's see Stuart pull that line on Tommy Urbanski.

Carolina Panthers Dump Keyshawn Johnson

Mr. "Just Give Me The Damn Ball" had a decent career, but the idea that he was a Hall-of-Famer is simply ludicrous. Of course, I'm acting like he's announced his retirement already, but at 35 Keyshawn should definitely consider it because he's far from what on once was. Besides with his big mouth, broadcasting would easily make for a nice second career.

The Mark Cuban Suicide Watch Is On

Seriously, if you're a Dallas Mavericks fan, not only are you concerned about your team staving off elimination tonight, but what owner Mark Cuban will do to your team (or himself) if they lose. Bottom line, either Dirk steps it up bigtime or all hell will break loose.
