According to ESPN, The NBA suspended Hornets forward Jason Smith two games for his Thursday night body check on Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin.

Smith was ejected for the foul late in the league-owned Hornets’ victory over the Clippers in Chris Paul’s return to New Orleans. A suspension was widely expected Friday because Smith made no attempt to make a play on the ball in knocking Griffin to the floor on a transition drive to the hoop.

In announcing the suspension Friday, NBA executive Stu Jackson said Smith’s foul during the late stages of the Hornets’ victory on Thursday night involved “excessive contact with the upper body.”

The play occured when Smith body-slammed Griffin to the floor on a fast break. Paul followed Smith into the concourse behind the basket and had words with him as several players jawed at each other.

James and Brinson are the parents of  2 sons LeBron Jr 7, and Bryce 4.James  teammate Dwayne Wade hosted the event and it was also a belated birthday celebration for James, who turned 27 the day before.
I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact Michael Jordan is getting married. James does everything Jordan does.

Topic: NBA Lockout – Memphis Mayor AC Wharton

The NBA lockout is a nightmare for those who depends on the revenue from the games.  According, to SI.com the television network partners at ABC, TNT and ESPN will surely be fuming at the prospect of no games on Christmas Day and beyond.

Players will scramble to sign overseas while having to admit that their bold move backfired. Owners will continue to see the lasting impact of their decisions on both the game at large and their bottom line. City leaders like Wharton will begin to run out of patience when their people are the ones being punished.

“We wish the [lockout] had not occurred,” Wharton said. “We wish it would end immediately. It is damaging our citizens, our businesses, even right now. It’s not a matter of whether our city can withstand the losses or not, but you have to look at it in the entire context.”

This death march needs to stop now. Let sanity, and the season, survive.

Rodman is the best of the best in NBA history and has rings to prove it,  he was so entertaining and I enjoyed watching him play, however,  I hate he has negative views on having relationships with black women.

Mike Brown (NBA Coach) More Qualified Than Champ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Topic: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar – Mike Brown

Video Tech Mike Brown is obvious more qualified to coach in the NBA than 6 time Champ Legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, James Worthy and the rest of the Lakers NBA Stars  whom has retired with several rings, however,  they are not getting the coaching jobs.

Anything  off the streets can walk in a NBA office and say “I want to coach your team” and the idiotic owners say “Okay”.  Legends with rings and know what it takes to get the job done have to beg for a chance only to get the doors slammed in their face makes no damn sense to me.

Mike Brown was head coach for Cleveland for many years coaching that arrogant Michael Jordan want-to be LeBron James and never won a championship.  Getting close to winning  is not winning.  The Lakers Kobe Bryant has not opened his big mouth to say “NO” to the new head coach.  Kobe could speak out and ask for Jabbar since he controls the owner and loves running to the media.

Bryant has more experience than Brown,  in this case Brown is the 1st grader trying to tell the multiple ring champ Bryant how to get another ring.  One day I hope those former NBA Champs get their chance to bring a Championship to a team who deserves it.  In the meantime let Kobe keep controlling the Lakers owner.

SAN FRANCISCO – CONGRATULATIONS TO THE MAVS.  Congratulations to The City Of Dallas,  Dirk,  Jason  and the rest of the Mavs for coming out with a positive attitude and getting the job done.  Final Score 105 95

Jason Terry was the player o the game he told the reporter “he put faith in God and others and today was vindcation.

I have a message for LeBron James and Dwyane Wade:

To: LeBron James: You are NOT Michael Jordan and never will be.  You should have stayed with Cleveland and ask for help the way Michael Jordan did.  Jordan got help from Scottie Pippen.

To: Dwyane Wade: When you were with Siovaughn YOU WON  now with Gabrielle YOU FAILED…  VAUGHN =WON   ELLE=FAIL.

I guess LeBron will play overseas!  Miami could have won if it wasn’t for the arrogance and negative attitude of LeBron and Dwyane.  The City Of Miami is a wonderful place.  Hard work is not enough to win, now LeBron should see how hard it is to win a championship.   He keeps losing so he might as well have stayed home in Cleveland and got help,  You don’t leave home LeBron James.

SAN FRANCISCO –  Here we go again with the arrogance of Dwyane Wade and the wannabe Michael Jordan> LeBron James having too much time on their hands to make fun of Dirk Nowitzki being sick.  The funny part of this is that Dirk was sick and still managed to beat them.  The Mavs are up 3-2 .

Wade said he coughed and made a joke about the cough because they both knew the camera was in their face.  Dirk called Wade and James “Childish and Ignorant”. Dirk was playing  with a high fever trying to win the game while James and Wade had too much free time on their hands making fun of  him.  They are unprofessional knowing the camera was on them.  They  are getting paid to bring a Championship to their  city,  they  are not  getting paid to mock someone.

Long gone are the classic days of  Magic Johnson and Larry Bird basketball.

 

Scottie Pippen Said LeBron Is Better Than Jordan

SAN FRANCISCO –  Former NBA Chicago Bull’s Star Hall Of Famer Scottie Pippen had the audacity to say that Miami Heat LeBron James “may be the greatest player to ever play the game” on ESPN Radio’s “Mike and Mike in the Morning.  Once the fans blasted Pippen for making a ridiculous statement he then took it back and tried to clean it up. This is what I was talking about on one of my past blogs called ” Two-Faced Celebrities” and now I can add Pippen to the list.

I am not a Michael Jordan fan, however, Pippen should have never disrespected Jordan.  Jordan has rings, If  James won today it will still take him 6 years to catch Jordan.  Pippen said LeBron James  “may be the greatest player to ever play the game.”  I wonder if Pippen ever heard the  name Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Walt Frasier, and I guess Pippen never heard the name Bill Russell and more.  Pippen does not have to like Jordan, however,  he must not disrespect him either. If he said something he should not have back track to clean it up,  Pippen must have meant it or he would not have said it.

James will play the Dallas Mavs 5 /31 /11 Tuesday night in Game 1  for the chance at the NBA Championship.
