The haters are still gonna hate, but damn give Killa Kobe his due! The man has finally led a team to that elusive Championship. I can’t wait to see the puppet commercial they have for us next.
Much respect to Killa for doing it well!!!

As a fan of the NBA, I must demand that Commissioner David Stern launch an immediate investigation into the operation of the Milwaukee Bucks. I believe there is a serious effort by Bucks Management to defraud the paying public. I come to this conclusion after I attended their recent home loss to the Detroit Pistons 87 – 76. What those of us in attendance saw was one of the poorest efforts ever given by a home team following a 3-day break.
The evidence can be found by just reviewing the 4th quarter of this game. The Pistons increased their halftime lead from 2 points to 18 points (27 – 11 run) by the end of the 3rd quarter. Head Coach Scott Skiles then must have blacked out and forgot to play his best players in the 4th quarter. Michael Redd (29 min., 4 pts.), Andrew Bogut (26 min., 17 pts.) and Richard Jefferson (29 min., 10 pts.) had the best seats in the Bradley Center for the final 12 minutes. Skiles clearly was sending a message to the fans that he was in control of this circus. At one point (mid-4th qtr.), Skiles was playing 3 bench players that had scored a combined 0 points during the contest… it was unexplainable.
The Bucks faithful had enough of the team and began to rain boos in the BC before the game concluded. I told my buddy at the game that watching this game was like going to the movies to see a Will Smith Blockbuster only to have his stunt double performing in all the scenes.
Milwaukee sports fans deserve better than this and until Sen. Kohl sells the team they won’t get it.
Gumbel No Longer Doing Play-By-Play At NFL Network – You and I have been waiting for 2 years for this to come to an end. This was a terrible decision to let the soft spoken, enigmatic Gumbel be your A-Team PBP announcer. He’s much better on HBO.
Paterno And PSU Don’t Extend Contract – As the whisper campaign to remove the legend gets louder, the PSU Administration cannot come to terms as to how to move on. Believe this, Rutgers University knows that when JoePa steps down, Greg Schiano (HC) will head to Happy Valley. Take that to the bank! Tom Bradley (PSU DC) will get strong consideration and support, but will lose out to the younger coach from New Jersey.
Uban Meyer Offers Scholarship To Fastest Student – Some may call it a cheap publicity stunt or self-serving move… I think it is brilliant and one of the reasons why programs like Florida Gators offer will continue to be Top Ten each year. I salute Meyer’s crafty thinking and how it energizes the student body while keeping the Gators in the national spotlight during the offseason.
