Come Fly With Me


Unbelievable- I actually went 2-0-1 on my picks today. If Lebron could learn to hit a damn free throw in crunch time, it would have been a perfect 3-0. But I guess we can't have it all.

Especially if by "all," you mean PCP. Now I finally understand why the Birdman thought he could fly. Chris Andersen was dismissed from the NBA for violating the league's substance abuse policy. It's the league's policy not to reveal the specific drug that caused the violation. But judging by his slam dunk performance, I think we can safely rule out steroids. My guess is that he was dropping acid under that aqua headband of his...

New owner Henry Samueli has decided to remove the "Mighty" from his Anaheim Mighty Ducks. There may also be a corresponding change to the logo and uniforms.

He's looking like a steal at #17 for the Pacers...

NBAdraft.net has posted a 2006 mock draft. They have Atlanta getting the #1 pick and drafting Adam Morrison. Because that's what this Hawks team needs- another 6'8 forward. Their highest ranked PG is Rajon Rondo out of Kentucky. I'm partial to Daniel Gibson out of Texas, unless he encounters a shower head that has too much water pressure or something and gets another concussion...

Ron Artest and Kobe both played. But I'm tired of hearing about them both, so if you want to hear what they did, flip on ESPNews...

Maybe not the strongest NBA draft ever...Rajon Rondo as the first pg? C'mon, Kentucky couldn't beat the Ashley Judd all-stars right now.
