Who is Harrison Barnes?

>> Monday, May 18, 2009

The newly named Rivals.com #2 recruit in the year of 2010, Harrison Barnes is one of the most coveted players in the country.

The Ames, Iowa prospect is as versatile as they come. Barnes possesses the ability to score on the wing and produce around the basket. Barnes is tremendous on the boards and excels on the defensive side of the ball with enough quickness to guard several positions.

Barnes is believed to be a Duke lean with Kansas and North Carolina hot on the trail. John Calipari has recently visited with Barnes and it appears he made a good impression, as well.

However, the majority feel that Barnes will become a Duke Blue Devil.


Vince McMahon vs. David Stern, who you got?

Houston, we have a problem! Seems as though a major scheduling conflict has occurred regarding the NBA playoffs and WWE's Monday Night Raw.

Vince McMahon's Raw program is now presented with a scheduling conflict involving the hometown Nugget's playoff game with the Los Angeles Lakers.

McMahon had this to say:

"Even though the Denver Nuggets had a strong team this year and were projected to make the playoffs, obviously Nuggets and Pepsi Center owner Stan Kroenke did not have enough faith in his own team to hold the May 25th date for a potential playoff game," WWE chairman Vince McMahon said in a statement."

McMahon is known to be a stubborn individual and it will be interesting to watch this conflict play out. According to the ESPN.com article, the Pepsi Center is currently selling tickets to both events!

I propose the idea of a ladder match between McMahon and David Stern for the key to the arena. It should provide for excellent TV and drama. A McMahon choke slam on the uptight David Stern may be better than the series itself.


What's better than an athlete singing?

12 youtube videos of the greatest singing performances of all time!

What's better than seeing Shaq and his "I'm Outstanding" video? How about Terry Bradshaw singing, "The Last Word in Lonesome is Me?"

ESPN Page 2 has put together their own version of American Idol...

It's a must see!


Uh, what did you say James?

Say what?

You want Obama to invite you when you don't win? I don't think that is how it works. You visit the president when you win a championship! You don't visit the president just for being a part of the Pittsburgh Steelers. This isn't the local trailer park or bar...it's the White House, James!

Most young, successful black men would be honored to meet and greet with our first African American president, but not you, James! I don't understand your logic, but I do realize why you aren't loading up on endorsements after a monster year for Pittsburgh. You apparently have no idea how to act in front of the camera.


Thank God...

No offense to Tony Kornheiser, but he was terrible as a Monday Night Football analyst. If you all are football fans then you know exactly what I am talking about. He would bring up ridiculous points that a lot of times were not even related to the game going on. This is a good move by ESPN to replace him with Jon "Child's Play" Gruden.

I have caught Chucky on the NFL network a few times over the past couple of months and suprisingly, he gave very insightful opinions. I personally loved the fact that he was given many oppurtunities to bash his former team the Oakland Raiders and never did. Too bad Warren Sapp couldn't follow his lead, you don't bite a hand that once fed you.

So now Tony you are allowed to get back to doing what you do best, arguing with Michael Wilbon on PTI about the same topics that four other guys just argued 30 minutes earlier on Around the Horn.
