April 24, Friday — my favorite day since I understood the calendar and that: ‘it’s the weekend!’ thing. Loved that truly classic comment from Tim Cowlishaw (on @AroundtheHorn) about guard Rajon Rondo ever playing again for the Dallas #Mavericks: “He will not. He will be seeking other medical opinions.”
Sweet! I wish ALL NBA teams whould pass on Rondo. Talent doesn’t overcome a loose-wire brain and totally disruptive person / personality. There’s too much decent talent out there to keep re-signing these idiot fools who don’t appreciate — and don’t deserve — what they’ve got goin’ for themselves and their families.
Thank you Brian Windorst for breakin’ down the LeBron James-Kevin Love #Cavaliers thing — in reality- and truth-style. That ‘Yeah baby, cool bro’! after a win … but sniping, finger-pointing (camouflaged as best as possible) after any loss. I say urine on that stuff. Anyone notice the ego maniacal mindset so many of our athletic ‘superstars’ seem to be plagued with?
Happy times to be able to wish Happy 39th Birthday (on April 25) to Tim Duncan. What a player. What a career. Happy Birthday, #Spurs’ legend.
Speaking of the Spurs, it will be nice when they eliminate the Clippers from the playoffs. At this writing, San Antonio is giving Los Angeles a 92-55 beat down with 6 minutes left in Game 3. (Final: Spurs 100, Clippers 73)
Too bad there can’t be a mandatory ruling that no discussion about the Clippers — in any form — can take place after the draft until a couple weeks before training camp begins. Some people are sick of hearing the soap opera-like saga of that Los Angeles team.
