Son Rises In West

Did we mention Kevin McHale blew off half the media scrum? Didn’t think so. But sometimes karma’s a bitch and it’s a bitch with drama.
We had a feeling something might be brewing before the game, especially with Sam Cassell counseling Austin Rivers. And if you’re buying that line of bullshit, could we interest you in more hyperbole?

    The Clips score 1 of the biggest wins in franchise history and end the Spurs’ supremacy in a Game 7 for the ages.

Unbelievable

Clippers1

    Our favorite Clippers beat writer Ben Bolch, who we’ve had the pleasure of working with, called Blake Griffin and the Clip Joint in 7. We could see it possibly happening, but we figured they’d result to their old habits and Spurs would win in 6. Ain’t happening, dawg. But who knew, particularly after the way the Clippers bombed twice at home and lost in crushing fashion, Game 5 being the worst. Now it’s the Spurs on the ropes, and it doesn’t look for good them. I’m paying $100 (like a few other people I know) to TIVO the fight. But we ain’t mad. It’s Game 7 in the Wild, Wild West.

Golden (State) Time Of Day

It’s been 40 years since these misfits captured an NBA title. I remember it. The old age in me is trying to decide if that’s a good thing or bad?
The fact that Charles Barkley is betting against them is reason enough to pick the Warriors, no?

    Warriors over Hornets in 5; Rockets over Mavericks in 6; Spurs over Clippers in 6; and Grizzlies over Blazers in 5.

Stating His Case

Los Angeles Clippers v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    Russell Westbrook has plenty of folks singing his name as the NBA’s MVP. That chorus grew louder Wednesday night when Westbrook produced his 4th triple-double in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s overtime win over the lowly Philadelphia 76ers.

Death Takes A Toll In February

Earl-Lloyd

    Earl Lloyd got 4-5 paragraphs in the L.A. Times. Disgusting. But those are the times we live in.
    February has been a cruel month when it comes to deaths of icons and sports figures. Unfortunately, we add Anthony Mason to the list.

Can’t Take The Leeds Out Of Charles

Barkley

    Some folks are a product of their environment. Take Charles Barkley and his hometown of Leeds, Ala.
    Excellent piece by Jesse Washington, who will be 1 of the featured writers for ESPN’s TheUndefeated.com, a site focusing on African American themes. No shit Sherlock.
    Still, as much as we’ve been Barkley’s biggest critics (and will continue to do so) because he doesn’t do his homework, and he needs to read more, this is good work and offers some insight.

NBA All-Star Snubs

DMC

    Doesn’t get any bigger than Run DMC. Damian Lillard will probably take Kobe’s spot which will cure 1 wrong but the DMC omission is just criminal. Tim Duncan? Seriously?

Charles Barkley Approves This Message

Doug

    Doug Gottlieb has never been the smartest tool in the shed. When he was at Notre Dame, where he played ball before transferring to Oklahoma State, Gottlieb got in a little trouble, just a bit, when he stole a fellow student’s credit card and charged up some purchases. That led to him heading to Zero State.
    As proof that Doug still has some education issues to work on, this was his response to Kobe Bryant and the Lakers wearing the “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts Tuesday night.
