Howard is too much of a diva PERIOD. The pressure was too much for this assclown to handle.. Maybe if the kid would quit smiling all the time and stop playing grabass all the time maybe he could make a freethrow or one!!!

I don't think Dwight Howard lost the talent he had in Orlando when he went to the Lakers.  It was just a bad fit for him.  He has the personality of wanting to be the leader..........

Incredible talent? Absolutely.  But don't ever characterize Howard as a leader.

Sooo my Devils are gonna suck this year.  My Raiders probably will too.  So that leaves the Blazers to pick up the slack.  Oh well this years gonna be a wash I'm thinking.  Raiders might just be good enough to fuckthemselves out of a top tier qb in next years draft.  Blazers will just be good enough not to have a top ten pick in next years draft and the Devils are gonna tank in a year that they traded that pick away for the asshole who just retired.  Yah lucky me =)

 Former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen is being sued over a fight last month at an upscale Southern California restaurant that left an autograph-seeker hospitalized with a head injury.

The $4 million lawsuit filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court says 49-year-old plaintiff Camran Shafighi simply asked Pippen for a photograph for his girlfriend's 12-year-old son.

Instead, the suit says, Shafighi got a "brutal and unjustified physical attack" that included spit in the face, a shove, and a punch that sent Shafighi to the ground.

"At no time did or could Mr. Shafighi physically provoke or fight back, as he was knocked unconscious with the first blow," the lawsuit says.

Sheriff's officials, who were still investigating the incident, said Pippen voluntarily came into a station to be questioned and was cooperative. He was not arrested and no charges have been filed.

Investigators at the time said that Pippen had been dining June 23 with his family at Nobu, a restaurant on the beach in Malibu frequented by celebrities.

Shafighi was taking pictures of Pippen inside the restaurant then outside in the parking lot, investigators said.

Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said several witnesses described Shafighi as intoxicated.

An argument ensued that led to violence, investigators said. Shafighi was taken to a hospital with a head injury, treated and released.

A phone message left after business hours for Pippen's attorney Mark Geragos was not immediately returned.

The 47-year-old Pippen won six NBA titles with Michael Jordan and the Bulls, and in 1996, was named one of the NBA's 50 greatest players. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2010.

Pippen now serves as special adviser to the Bulls' president and chief operating officer.

Free-agent forward Lamar Odom is in a Los Angeles hotel, where friends are trying to get him help for an unspecified drug problem, a source told ESPN on Monday.

The information comes after Odom's agent refuted a TMZ report Sunday that his client had been missing for 72 hours after a dispute with his wife, Khloe Kardashian.

Agent Jeff Schwartz would not reveal Odom's whereabouts, telling ESPN.com's Marc Stein earlier Monday: "Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is."

TMZ also reported that people close to Odom feared that he was involved with drugs.

Kardashian reacted angrily on Twitter to ongoing speculation about her husband, saying: "Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s--- about my family."

Without disclosing further specifics, Schwartz added: "Playing in the NBA is still very much a part of Lamar's plans."

Odom spent last season with the Los Angeles Clippers and has been pursued in free agency this summer by the Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.

Veteran NBA player Lamar Odom was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence after he was spotted driving erratically on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley, the California Highway Patrol said.

Odom, a free agent who has played for the Lakers and most recently the Clippers, was arrested at 3:54 a.m. and booked into jail in Van Nuys at 5:01 a.m., according to jail records.

CHP officials said they spotted Odom driving a white Mercedes sports utility vehicle eastbound on the 101 Freeway near Sepulveda Boulevard. The driver was driving in a "serpentine manner" at speeds of about 50 mph.

Authorities tried to pull over Odom, but he continued driving eastbound, passing Van Nuys Boulevard and Woodman Avenue. He exited at Coldwater Canyon Boulevard and came to a stop, CHP officials said.

Odom showed "objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated," according to a CHP report.

Odom was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and possibly drugs.

At the Van Nuys jail, Odom refused all chemical tests and was booked without incident, CHP officials said.

Odom has made headlines in recent weeks for alleged drug use, including reports last weekend that he was missing after a fight with his wife, Khloe Kardashian Odom.

His agent told ESPN that the basketball player was “not missing,” and a source told the outlet that Odom was at a Los Angeles hotel as friends tried to help him with a drug problem.

Kardashian Odom tweeted about the reports, saying it was “really hard to sit here and listen to people talk … about my family.”

In a separate case, Los Angeles prosecutors said last week that they would not file charges against Odom in connection with a reported battery and grand theft arrest last month involving a paparazzo in Hollywood.

Instead, Odom would be required to attend a city attorney's hearing that can include a warning to avoid future run-ins or an order to attend counseling.

The incident, captured on video, took place on El Cerrito Place near Franklin Avenue. It showed Odom confiscating a rolling bag believed to contain camera equipment from a photographer who asked him questions about whether he was having an extramarital affair.

Odom, who is married to Khloe Kardashian, is then shown placing the bag in the trunk of his white Mercedes coupe and driving off.

In the same video he appears again on Hollywood Boulevard removing the items from his trunk and leaving them on the street.

The Los Angeles County district attorney declined to file charges against Odom, citing insufficient evidence that a felony had been committed.

In 2001, Odom was suspended twice for drug violations while playing for the Clippers. The NBA declined to confirm the nature of the violations.

Drug rumors and some doubts about his character bumped him from the top spot in the 1999 draft down to the fourth pick, which is where the Clippers found him. He played for the Miami Heat, the Lakers and the Dallas Mavericks before returning to the Clippers last year.

Okay, so I am watching the Rising Stars Challenge last night and I was excited to watch it because I am always intrigued about rookies and other up-and-comers and I gotta say I was a bit disappointed in the fact that in the game they play minimal (if any) defense.  Even when they were in the paint they just allowed players in the low post to score at will.  When I watch a basketball game I want to see both offense AND defense, without it they might as well be having a shootaround.  I know the All-Star Game itself will be just like the Rising Stars game but will still look at it just for the hope that there will be at least some effort on defense from both teams.

Sixers Keep Boldly Moving Forward

Quote
Sam Hinkie can’t yet put a pin in the exact place on the map, but he does know where he’s going.

Forward.

You might not like the speed. You might even turn your nose up at the route this season or the blighted scenery that will make up the rest of the schedule.

But you’ll have to admit it’s different — and in the long run preferable — to the hamster wheel that’s taken the 76ers nowhere fast for more than a decade.

That the first-year general manager chose to unload Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen for a pocketful of beans and expiring contracts was simply a continuation of the plan he’s been trying to execute from his first day on the job.

You can’t build something new and lasting on old ground if all you do is switch out the furniture and slap on a fresh coat of paint. That’s really all the Sixers had been doing since back in the days when Allen Iverson and Larry Brown were driving each other crazy all the way to the NBA Finals.

Over the past several years, all the Sixers could hang their jerseys on was a first-round upset of the Bulls in the 2012 that was only accomplished because Derrick Rose had crumpled in a heap.

What’s been needed for quite some time has been for somebody to come in and blow the whole thing up and start from scratch, disregarding all of the old ways and the ingrained local Philly network.

Hinkie has no problem being that guy.

When he finished at the trade deadline, Hinkie’s swapping had produced six second-round draft picks, five new players, a bundle of expiring contracts and $30 million in salary cap room for the summer.

Finally, the 76ers have owners and a GM that has a clear direction on where to go to make them contenders in the long run as well as perennially.

Yup, Commissioner Silver expects to get at least 3 quarters of the remaining owners to remove Sterling as well as find a suitable owner for the club.  The NBA is 100% better off without that asshole.

Maybe...but how would YOU like to have your entire life ruined because of something you thought you were saying in confidence?

And sure, he's a racist asshole and deserves to be black-balled but the NBA should have known sooner. And what a bunch of morons the NAACP are  - they were going to give this guy TWO lifetime achievement awards. Ha! IMO they're ALL culpable.

His girlfriend, at that time, deserves blame in this as well.  She is just as stupid.
