Lights out...

>> Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Was it just me or did Lebron just look tired at the end of the fourth quarter and in the overtime period? Lebron is not getting any help in this series at all from any of his teammates. Maybe I'm seeing it differently, but it appears like they find a way to get the ball to King James and then just sit around waiting on him to drive the middle and create something. I will give the Magic credit though, any team is hard to beat when they are hitting 67 threes in one game, or however many it was.

Nike better get ready to change their puppet ad up and put in Dwight Howard. Or they could flip the script and put in Hedo Turkoglu. I want to see his puppet prancing around screaming jibberish that no one understands at Kobe. Now that would sale shoes.

It isn't going to be easy for James and the Cavs to pull this series out. I, like everyone else in the world, want to see a Lebron vs. Kobe match-up in the finals. Hopefully, The Black Mamba doesn't let me down too.

Oh almost forgot, this just came in hot off the press...John Calipari just sneezed...uh oh Kentucky, he might just be human afterall. Maybe he'll tweet an apology later?


Calipari Twitters an Apology...

Calipari has, seemingly, done everything right since becoming the head basketball coach at UK.

However, his first boo-boo may be failing to meet with Eastern Kentuckian, Landon Slone. Slone was a preferred walk-on under the former Gillispie regime.

According to Tipton,

“I asked several times to speak to Coach Cal to see what was in my best interests,” Slone said.

That meeting never took place.

Of his best interests, Slone said, “I think it’s starting to get very obvious.”

Yet, before the roar of disapproval in the Big Blue Nation could muster more than a whimper,
Calipari tweeted an apology heard by nearly 100,000 twitter users.

UKCoachCalipari: Sorry to Landon Sloan. Heard he waited to speak to me in my office but I didn’t know. Really sorry. We are still trying to get organized!!

Accept the apology and move on Eastern Kentucky. Calipari had more important things to recruiting John Wall.


A Duke Player Playing Dirty?

What's this? A Duke Alum playing dirty?


At least, not in the eyes of Duke fans. I'm sure that was an accidental trip...similar to Christian Laettner stomping on Timberlake in 1992.
