Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

I think ESPN just aired a documentary called LeBron James: the Son of God and the Most Important Man in History.
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

Cuban is probably a bigger douche bag than Steinbrenner ever was

Agree about Cuban.
Isn't it against NBA rules for another franchise to try and convince a player to sign with them when said player made a verbal commitment to another team?
Plus they stayed at his house until the signing deadline.

Yeah I really don't know what the rules are for that sort of thing.

We reach the parts other combos cannot reach
We beach the beachheads other armies cannot beach
We speak the tongues other mouths cannot speak

Had a feeling the Clippers were going against NBA rules.

Now let's hope his business partners are real Pacific Northwesters and not those skunk dealers at UConn who got their stuff third-hand from the same UMass, UNH, and Bennington-sourced moldy bellybutton lint that pollutes every college campus on the Northeast Corridor. :yuck:

The missuz is in Toronto this week and was irritated at the expense of her hotel. Turns out she's in the same hotel as players for the NBA All-Star game. She said that riding in the elevator was being eye level with elbows.
Walrus birth doesn't make good breakfast conversation!

I was at DCA airport on Friday and there was what looked to be an NBA player who people were making a fuss over. He was really tall, bald with a beard and a gorgeous, smoking hot blonde who he wouldn't normally have a chance in hell of being with.

I'm pretty sure it was this guy Marcin Gorat.
