Okie doke, a few links: –SLAM Online’s top 50 article on Shaq by the fantastic Myles Brown. -An update on the Delonte West situation via Windhorst. -Meta-news: Cavs: The Blog uber-commenter Colin’s roommate’s cousin is reportedly dating JJ Hickson, according to Colin. Yes, there’s something deeply strange about me reporting this as news. Twitter makes my life stranger. -Things I think about at 3:40 in the morning: no matter what…

On The Delonte West Situation

If you haven’t caught the story yet, here’s a link to Windhorst’s most recent article, which outlines most of what’s happened so far and provides some nice insight into what’s been going on with Delonte over the last little while. Basically, here’s what happened. Delonte cut off a police officer while riding his motorcycle on the freeway, and they found two loaded handguns on him, as well as a shotgun…

Let’s Make A Reading List, Part 2: The Highly Recommended

Alright. Sorry I’ve been out the past few days; my life is insane, and I was also avoiding you guys after the most awkward-situation creating game ever on Saturday. Fun times. So anyways, in lieu of actual news or analysis, here are more books that I like. The Blind Side, Michael Lewis I left this off my first list because Moneyball was an absolute must-include, and for some reason I…

-LeBron James: Still undecided about 2010. Francisco Franco: Still Dead. -And AI is becoming the NBA’s version of Brett Favre. You’re a 6th man now. Deal. And over on SLAM Online, the AI-related comments on the “top 50” articles are officially starting to go into self-parody. -Bummed I won’t get to see Sessions in LA next year, although this does mean more Bassy, which I fully support. -The fabulous Brett…

This is where I’m not

Hey guys, spent last night writing up Kevin Martin for the SLAM Top 50. So if you like Kevin Martin, mosey on over there and have yourself a good time. Other than that, I don’t really know. I’ll miss Bruce Bowen, in a way. Iverson is nearing Favre territory. Weather remains charming. Until later, guys.

Not  a whole lot going on today, as has been the norm, but here’s what’s been going on: Henry Abbott is not too keen on LeBron’s new “autobiography,” Shooting Stars, which was co-written by Buzz Bissinger. I haven’t had a chance to read the book yet, and will definitely check it out when I do have a chance, but this review was disheartening to me, because it confirms my expectations…

First off, sorry for the slight player profile delay: it became obvious when I started thinking about this that Z’s profile is going to take some serious thought, so you’ll have to be a little patient with me. Until, then, some links: This Rubio thing absolutely infuriates me. Drives me crazy. Nothing I hate more in sports. Anyways, here are some good takes on the situation that at least attempt…

Let’s start with some good news: This mixtape track, released in conjunction with LeBron’s documentary “More Than A Game,” is absolutely freaking epic. Holy crap. I was thinking that this was one of the best dream-team collaborations I’d ever heard and maybe this song of the summer before Eminem came on, and then HOLY CRAP. He just absolutely destroys everything that came before him, and the stuff that came before…

Alright, here are some ultra-quick links in the 15 minutes I have in between classes today: I’m still kinda on the fence about Twitter for a lot of reasons, but once in a blue moon you get to see something like this unbelievable twitter saga from Natalie Sitto of Need4Sheed.com. I recommend going through this immediately and with extreme prejudice. There’s definitely some stuff in there about new media, what…

A Few (more) thoughts on Michael Beasley

There’s just an absolute put-load of news, both Cavs-related and otherwise, that’s gone on in the last few days, so let’s do our best to catch up. The story of the day, and maybe one of the stories of the off-season, is the news that Michael Beasley has checked into rehabilitation, apparently for reasons relating to depression. There are also questions regarding substances, particularly Beasley’s use of marijuana, but I…
