Just Making Sure Everyone Saw Joe Johnson Make Paul Pierce Look Crippled Last Night

 

Not a huge basketball fan…actually could care less about the sport but when I see shit like this go on in the NBA, it’s definitely worthy of a post. Paul Pierce looked like he’s turning 66-years old when he reached in on that Joe Johnson dribble. I feel like putting a dude on his ass like that plus making the shot is equivalent to a running back trucking a DB in the secondary for a TD, a hockey player dangling the shit out of a goalie, an outfielder robbing a hitter of a homerun, or a golfer eagle-ling a par 5. You get the idea. Hey Paul, here’s a rag. Wipe JJ’s splooge from your face!

Royce White Turned Out To Be A Great Gamble For The Houston Rockets, Huh?

ESPN: The Rockets intend to fine rookie Royce White for every day he remains away from the team or does not attend sessions with a therapist arranged by the team, according to a report by the Houston Chronicle. White, the 16th pick in June’s draft, has remained absent from the team in a dispute over how the Rockets are helping him confront his anxiety disorder. Rockets owner Leslie Alexander on Tuesday said that there were “internal repercussions” for White missing practices and games. The Rockets have arranged for White to be treated by Dr. Aaron Fink of Baylor College of Medicine, but White has not attended those sessions, according to the Chronicle. White reportedly has expressed concerns to Fink that the problem between himself and the Rockets is about “support” rather than anxiety. “In hindsight, perhaps it was not a good idea to be open and honest about my anxiety disorder — due to the current situations at hand that involve the nature of actions from the Houston Rockets,” White said in a statement released by his publicist Tuesday night. “As a rookie, I want to settle into a team and make progress, but since [the] preseason, the Rockets have been inconsistent with their agreement to proactively create a healthy and successful relationship.” The 6-foot-8 White made a deal with the team to travel by bus to some games this season, so he could confront his fear of flying and obsessive compulsive disorder over the long term. He flew with the team to its season opener in Detroit, then traveled by bus to games at Atlanta and Memphis. White, who has yet to play in a game, did not attend Monday’s game against Miami, Tuesday’s practice or Wednesday’s game with New Orleans. He says on his Twitter account that the Rockets have been “inconsistent” in helping him. The Rockets have no plans to trade or release White, according to the Chronicle.

 

And this folks, is exactly why you don’t take a chance on an OCD, anxiety-filled first round draft pick. Royce White couldn’t even sit with his own family during the draft and has heart palpitations at just the thought of getting on a plane. But let’s take a chance on him and maybe all of that will go away by the time the season starts. Nope. And it’s only going to get worse. If all this negative media attention doesn’t put Royce in a coma, he at least will have a complete meltdown if he hasn’t already. Hey Royce, you think anyone LIKES flying?! Do what the rest of us do; chase a couple Xanax with a stiff drink and get to where you need to go. And as for the Rockets, you knew what you were getting yourselves into when you picked the guy who was curled up in the corner of a dark closet watching the draft. You took a gamble and you lost…on to the next!

LeBron Victimizes Yet Another Kid Under The Rim

 

Pretty sure this sums up LBJ’s career. Jumper, brick. Jumper, brick. Fuck it, dunk on a 14-year-old. I love the kid at the 0:42 mark who goes ‘You gotta make that!’ Nothing worse than getting shit talked to by a kid who can’t even drive. Then that smug asshole walks back to his seat all cocky like he just dunked on Dirk. I understand the lockout is hurting NBA players everywhere but go play flag football against college kids like Kevin Durant or play over seas like some of the other players. Stop embarrassing yourself on Youtube by Sandusky-ing kids under the rim.

Side note: You know after that second miss LBJ was thinking ‘goddamn it, this is gonna be all over the internet in an hour.’
