PHANTOM CAM: Steve Blake’s game-winning three-pointer vs. the Rockets

I saw who won that game.

Only five players are gone from the roster for tomorrow….ain’t no big.

“After receiving his 15th technical foul of the season, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant sat down on the bench and appeared to direct a gay slur toward referee Bennie Adams,” reports Mark Medina and Broderick Turner.

Ever since the Kobe was charged / faced allegations of rape from a woman that is a fraction as hot as his wife Vanessa (yeah, that’s sexist - but sexism was all over that thing) in Coloarado, he just doesn’t have that kind of margin for error when it comes to meaningless, indulgent behavior like this. It’s one thing to be a competitor; it’s another to be a high-achieving brat.

It also shows how un-even officiating (still) is in the NBA. I remember reading stories and hearing commentators saying that Michael Jordan was treated differently by referees than other players in the league. I heard the same said about Kobe. Kobe’s sense of entitlement shows in calling the referee faggot because he’s pretty secure in his place in the NBA.

David Stern can say and fine all he wants to: if Kobe isn’t the monster that he (Stern) or Dr. Buss created, then Kobe is the whole league’s monster.

San Antonio? Seriously?

Ron Artest tackles mental health awareness and stays amazing while doing so

Ron Artest is promoting mental-health awareness.

That’s it.

There is no punch line.

No big finish, no rim shot, no laugh track. Just the starting small forward of the two-time defending champions visiting a middle school Thursday in the Los Angeles suburb of Montebello to call for passage of federal legislation and encourage students to reach out to a health-care worker if they need.

Artest finally won a title in June after 11 regular seasons of trying … and now he’s planning to sell the championship ring as a fundraiser to put more psychologists, psychiatrists and therapists in schools.

“I’m never going to put it on,” he said.

Dolphins’ Full-Page Congrats Ad Misspells “Dwayne” Wade
And in related news, a commenter on our site believes that it is Dwyane Wade who spelled it wrong, not the Dolphins.

This has acually been perplexing for the last week and a half, and I had to look it up on Wikipedia. Some outlets had the classic “Dwayne,” other (such as ESPN during THE DECISION) had “Dwyane.”  Lo and behold, Wikipedia spells it  “Dwyane”. You can’t really blame people for assuming tht the name follows a conventional spelling, especially since they are phonetically identical.
I think the bigger error in this ad is that the MIAMI FUCKING DOLPHINS are boasting about their city’s athletic prospects.

IT’S OFFICIAL: They’re getting the band back together for one more season. In Phil Jackson’s own words:

“Count me in. After a couple weeks of deliberation, it  is time to get back to the challenge of putting together a team that can  defend its title in the 2010-11 season.  It’ll be the last stand for  me, and I hope a grand one.”

Bring on your LeBron/Wade/Bosh supergroups. Phil, Kobe, and the rest of the crew will be waiting.
