The 10 Biggest Babies in the NBA

For some reason, this year, NBA big men have have taken childishness to a whole new stratosphere. Here are a few crucial offenders: Continue reading

This fact became glaringly clear to me after watching Dwyane Wade single-handedly put the boots to the Magic in the closing moments of Sunday night’s loss to the Heat. Now that the “Dwight fight” is finally over and we know that the Magic will finish the season with virtually the same team that got bounced out of the first round by the perpetually middling Hawks, I find myself suffering from a distinct case of deja vu.

Deron Williams’ extraordinary scoring effort yesterday for the New Jersey Nets (57 points, 16-29 fg, 21-21 ft) against the Charlotte Bobcats was trumped by two stories (the order flip-flops depending on the region): Continue reading

A Sampling of Idiotic Dwight Howard Trade Ideas From Lakers Fans

I love listening to sports talk radio and hearing clueless fans chime in with their cockamamie trade ideas. The L.A. radio stations have been blowing up since the idea of Dwight Howard came to the table.

I used to have to listen to all of these and jot them down but, thanks to Mark Zuckerberg (or the Winklevi…who knows?), we now have Facebook to document Lakers fans in all their idiocy. Continue reading
