UNC Recruit Makes Ridiculous Shot

If 2011 North Carolina Tarheels recruit P.J. Hairston‘s NCAA career doesn’t go as planned and he fails to make it to the NBA, he can always try out for a spot on the Harlem Globetrotters’ roster.  Listed as a 6’3″ small forward, P.J. might have to make a few more shots like this one if…Read More

Bullish on DeMarcus Cousins in the NBA

It seems as if every year around draft time in the major sports there is at least one prominent player picked on for “character issues.” Real or not, the media needs a compelling storyline to write and talk about. In the NFL this year, that player was Dez Bryant, who had issues that may have…Read More

If Health Is Issue, Phil Should Retire

Last week the LA Lakers won their second consecutive NBA Championship. The win gave Phil Jackson his 11th title as a head coach and already had Kobe Bryant thinking Jackson would retire.

Just a few weeks ago I was writing about spotting Chris Bosh having dinner in LA with Dwyane Wade, thinking that the Heat would be pretty dangerous with a Wade-Bosh one-two punch. Knicks fans were probably thinking that a LeBron-Bosh combination would be just as lethal. Lakers fans have been contemplating a potential Andrew Bynum…Read More

JC Penney Anticipated a Celtics Win

First it was Macy’s misspelling “Los Angeles” on their Lakers championships shirts. Now, it’s JC Penney screwing things up. We’ve already touched on how the media and clothing companies prepare two sets of products depending on the possible outcomes of a major sporting event. Department store JC Penney is no exception, and as ProBasketballTalk points…Read More

Radio Show Hangs Up on Bill Walton

The morning after the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, a radio show invited Bill Walton on as a guest and then hung up on him.  Any idea what city that radio show was based out of?  If you guessed Boston, then good for you. Fred “Toucher”…Read More
