Ricky Rubio is available to the media… "What the hell?"

I defy you to watch this video and not fall in love with this guy. DEFY YOU, I SAY! Couple things I took away from this brief interview: – Jump shot motion looks so much smoother and efficient. Now, that could completely go away when he gets into game action, but he talked about working […]

Beasley unbound

Friends, your 2011 lockout is blessedly over. I’d like to be able to tell you that this means that we can just forget it all and move on. But, for many reasons, we can’t. Owners will continue exploit every possible CBA wrinkle in order to personally embed diamonds into Drew Gooden’s (and Jerome James’, and […]

Michael Beasley and his nasty lawsuit

You have probably read that Michael Beasley is being sued by Joel Bell, his former agent, for failing to pay a 20% commission on an endorsement deal. Beasley, in turn, is suing Bell as well as, Curtis Malone, his former AAU coach and mentor. Beasley’s suit claims that Bell and Malone conspired to manipulate the […]

Mike Beasley talks lockout

So Michael Beasley dropped a game-high 56 points in Sunday’s OKC charity all-star game and then dropped this lockout-inspired (but surely not Derek Fisher-endorsed) gem: “Fighting over 3 percent, that’s kind of retarded to me. But it is what is. We’ll come to an agreement.” I have two questions for you Michael Beasley. First, when […]

Adelman and Beasley in the rumor mill

Look, I know it’s a little weird to be obsessively monitoring the travel plans of an, in most respects, average 66-year-old man. I mean, it’s not like Rick Adelman is carrying a radical cure for Alzheimer’s (which also happens to give apes astonishing powers of intelligence and will usher in the end of human life […]

Michael Beasley's endless summer, cont.

Oh man, this offseason just gets longer and longer. Evidently our guy (an adult man, remember, who gets paid to play basketball) wasn’t aware that there would be hecklers at a streetball game in New York and is lacking the deep breathing skills necessary to keep things chill. From Ian Begley of ESPN New York […]

Michael Beasley's endless summer

So it’s been kind of a bummer of a summer for Michael Beasley. First he gets caught doing 84 in a 65 with weed under the seat. (But that weed totally didn’t even belong to him, I swear. It was, like, his buddy’s?) And now this. In a DC pro-am game, B-Eazy gets absolutely humiliated […]

Running to fail: Wolves on the break

The possibility of the Wolves indulging in Nellie-ball has the internets a-buzzing. First, at Truehoop today, Zach shows himself to be somewhat ambivalent on the Wolves’ plans to push the pace. Here’s an interesting tidbit: To say Wolves fans just want to see up-tempo basketball seems to be extremely shortsighted. I think Wolves fans are […]

Adventures in babysitting

Depending on who you ask, marijuana isn’t particularly harmful. Sure it might lead to bouts with forgetfulness and exceeding one’s weekly calorie intake in a matter of hours, but all in all, Mary Jane isn’t regarded to be the life altering substance her powdery cousins are. However it is illegal and on the list of […]

Timberwolves 95, Grizzlies 104: is this desire?

Just what is going on with the Minnesota Timberwolves? The team is losing; nothing new to report there. But these recent bummers are unlike those December close calls, in which only late game meltdowns born of inexperience prevented the team from knocking off superior squads. No, these recent games are much less encouraging, much more […]
