For years I thought of Vin Scully only as the announcer for the NBA team I disliked most, and Mark Cuban as a flamboyant jerk. I may have to think about that.
You've probably read something by now about Scully vocally abandoning the NFL and Cuban's comments regarding NFL/NBA 'slavery' drivel. Here's hoping about 100 other owners start drawing lines. One thing you probably haven't seen is this blithering screed against them in the NYDN:

In such a short period of time, its back to the same old thing in The Land. Back to Wait Till Next Year. Back to (now not one) another Championship in another sport, please before I kick the bucket.
Truly could NOT believe this latest collapse (reminds me of 2007). Didnt watch the last two games. Couldn't bear to watch the losing again. Like so many times these past 53 years, almost getting there and ZOINK...Buh Bye! Had a short respite i...Read Full Post »

OK. One week after I give the Cavs huge props for getting a haul on the Irving trade, now they want to back out of the deal b/c they felt the Celts weren't up front about Thomas' injury.
Uh, memo to the Cavs, people knew he likely wasn't going to start the season and knew this was the last year of his deal. At a minimum, you shouldn't have announced anything until you had done your due diligence. Sounds like you're just have a case of buyer's remorse. Here's hoping you get nothing or...

I'm not a fan of either team by a long shot, but I think the Cavs just pantsed the Celts on this deal.
2018 1RDP fm Brooklyn, top 10 protected. If it is protected, then it becomes UNPROTECTED in 2019.
Irving is 3 yrs younger and has an extra year on his contract. Both are similar players. But Thomas has never been a troublemaker. They got a haul after he said he wanted out.
Irving wanted out b/c he wants to ...Read Full Post »

Steph has proven to not only be immature on the court, but stupid too! Guess that goes with all that money you just received, eh???
You've probably seen (or heard) of the wedding video where Steph is mocking Lebron, with Kyrie laughing his butt off.
First, knowing how digital today is and how many people have cell phones; you are ALWAYS being recorded if you are "famous". Dumb move! Classless too!

Seems the word in Cleveland for not one, but now TWO of our sports team is dyfunctional.
I'd say after Kyrie, is DISS function. Again, another sports star takes a dump on Cleveland and her most loyal and passionate fan base. Lebron has always held us hostage. Jim Thome left us for more $$$ and got a statue at Jacobs Field. Browns players leave the team and tell the world they are relieved.
As one of those most passion...Read Full Post »

You don't remember him but I do. His name was Gene Conley, and he passed away at 86. Who was this guy, you ask?
He was an amazing athlete. To me, he was the sub center for the Boston Celtics at their peak, winning 3 rings. He was no small part of it. Russell called him the meanest player he ever played against, and he played against him every day in practice. Johnny Most dubbed him Jumpin' Gene. In the 1959-60 season, with probably the best team Boston ever put o...Read Full Post »

Here's something you don't read every day!
While the Warriors refuse to visit DC and yet another 'special counsel' with a vague agenda invades the place to clog it up more, this sort of headline stands out in the oddest way:

Here we go again...
Rumors. Everyone writing articles about Why We Lost. Blogs here on why we lost.
You know why we lost? Because we werent prepared! Because we looked like krap in two games and didnt show up. You cant dig a hole against Golden State. Because the Warriors honestly felt as if they were the better team last year and let the defeat fuel fire in their belly. The defense sucked. We finally did...Read Full Post »

It's a place that's the definition of self-entitlement. It's a place that enabled Colin Kaepernick. It's a place where "Free Speech" as championed by its major state university results in "safe spaces," aka censorship. And now it's a place where its NBA champions have voted not to visit the White House. It's really hard to root for these guys and their fan base.
Nevertheless, they're champs for the second time in 3 years. Before you start crowning dynasties, read...Read Full Post »
