Chris Chelios reminisces about a very special coach.:

Well, at least we finally figured out what happened to Jules. This is totally brilliant.

The Spurs take it to the bank.:

Abracadabra, you're screwed:
As if the Magic weren't having enough problems, there goes Steve Francis for what's likely to be most of the rest of the season for kicking a photographer.
Between Stacey's lotion chuckin', the less than acrimonious parting of Johnny Davis and a sub .500 season in which the best they can hope for is to back into the playoffs and get murdered by the Heat, things are not going too well in Orlando.
Having already drastically retooled by dealing a franchise player yet AGAIN, what can the Magic hope to do in THIS off-season to prevent another creaky year for this constantly teetering team?

See You Next Tuesday:
Cleveland coach Paul Silas calls Carlos Boozer a c**t.
From a player; well, alright. But from a coach? Yikes.
It's even sillier in the verbatim.

Darts - Sport or Not a Sport?

I'll say sport, not athletes.

The next time you have to listen to how terrible Ron Artest is

See, what caught my attention was the MUSIC. I love the pissed Kobe giving dap to the fans while "rollin wit' THUGS" plays in the background. So classic.

SpoFi's Where are they now.

Thanks guys. Sorry I don't show myself around here much these days. I'm likely to return come football season; but this blog o' mine has eaten up so goddam much time that I don't have any left over. I learned how to put together articles through trial and error over here though, so you'll always be close to my heart. Like an embolism. love + hickies

EAST: 1. Indiana v 8. Boston, should be a sweep. 2. Detroit v 7. Milwaukee, easily. 3. New Jersey v 6. New York, though this could be the surprise bracket. 4. Miami v 5. New Orleans, in a dogfight. WEST: 1. Minnesota v 8. Denver, second round FINALLY. 2. Los Angeles v 7. Houston and it won't be pretty. 3. San Antonio v 6. Memphis, Memphis wins one. 4. Sacramento v 5. Dallas Is anyone keeping track of this, a'la the NFL playoffs?

Kobe Playing Mind Games?

If not VC, how about 'Sheed when he was blazerbound?

Denver's postseason spot means it's gotta be a split. The NBA wouldn't dare skip over LeBron, not after he's lived up to his own level of hype.

Kobe Playing Mind Games?

I really really really REALLY dislike the Lakers. The prior iteration of the team actually caused a serious riff between me and my father. I want these fuckers OUSTED, toot sweet.

not a sport, not athletes. The fox and horse in the equation might be considered athletes in a "most dangerous game" kinda way.
