The 2013 NBA draft class is being called the weakest group of prospects in the past decade. There isn’t a clear-cut #1 pick, and almost every scout has a differing opinion on just about every prospect.

With that being said, the bad NBA teams will have to make due with what they have.

So here are my top 11 NBA draft prospects for the 2013 draft.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. v Shane Mosley Weigh-In

Mark McGwire, Jose Conseco, Barry Bonds.

What do these three guys have in common? They all did steroids of course. They tainted their bodies which in turn tainted the game by using steroids to create mammoth bodies that led to awe-inspiring statistics. When the truth came to light, these fools got hated on by a large portion of the sports fan community. I completely understand this reaction.

So why the fuck are people hating on Floyd Mayweather, Jr.? Read the rest of this entry »

New York Knicks v Memphis Grizzlies

Marc Gasol is the 2013 NBA Defensive Player of the Year. Marc Gasol was also named to the 2013 NBA All-Defensive Second Team.

Does that make sense to you?

The current Defensive Player of the Year, on the NBA All-Defensive Second Team. Really? To quote Stephen A. Smith, that’s just “so disrespectful.”

flop

As per NBA rules, any player who flops during the regular-season game would first be warned, followed by fines in increments of $5,000 for each successive flop. The fines would increase to $30,000 for a fifth offense and a suspension would also be considered.  Apparently criticizing the refs for not calling flops will cost you $35,000.

The NBA fined Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau after he criticized the officiating following the Bulls’ game 3 loss to the Heat.  He was upset that Nazr Mohammed was ejected after shoving LeBron James as he accused ‘Bron ‘Bron of flopping.  Check out the video of the incident here: Read the rest of this entry »

Bogut_07

Steph Curry is a superstar. Klay Thompson is one of the NBA’s best shooters. David Lee is a two-time All-Star, and Harrison Barnes scored 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the Warriors’ Game 4 win.

But the reality is that the key to the Warriors winning this series is their 7’ foot Australian center, Andrew Bogut.

Matt Kenseth snatched the lead from his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch with 13 laps to go and cruised to victory in the Bojangles’ Southern 500 from Darlington Raceway on Saturday night. Busch, who dominated the NASCAR Nationwide race the night before, dominated the Sprint Cup race leading 265 laps, but he ended up in sixth.

Kenseth, won with interim crew chief Wally Brown, who stepped in while Jason Ratcliff served a one-race suspension from when the No. 20 failed post race inspection at Kansas Speedway last month.

“This is a dream come true,” Kenseth shouted on his radio. “Thank you guys very much.” Read the rest of this entry »

Every year, Maxim Magazine ranks the top 100 hottest women on the planet. This year, someone made the list that no one saw coming…literally.

Manti Te’o’s ex-girlfriend, Lennay Kekua, came in on Maxim’s list at #69 this year. Interesting number choice to say the least.

Miley Cyrus topped Maxim’s Top 100 this year, followed by Selena Gomez at two and Rihanna at three.

As a die-hard Brooklyn Nets fan, I was utterly disgusted in their Game 7 performance on against the Bulls. It was abysmal. The Nets played practically zero defensive, missed open shot after open shot, and worst of all, they didn’t show enough effort down the stretch.

I don’t want to harp on the loss though. I want to talk about what the Nets can do this offseason to improve as a team.

Coaching

General Manager Billy King announced on Sunday that interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo will not return next season to coach the Nets.

P.J. did a decent job this year, but King made the right move here. Carlesimo is a good coach, but he isn’t the right coach for the Nets. The Nets were out-toughed in Game 7, especially on the glass. Whoever coaches the Nets next season will have to be able to toughen this squad up, and put a much bigger emphasis the defensive end of the court.
