In his ongoing quest to spoil every part of his book, Phil Jackson revealed in an interview with Time that if he was starting an alltime team, he wouldn’t begin with Jordan. “In my estimation, the guy that has to be there would be Bill Russell. He has won 11 championships as a player. That’s really the idea of what excellence is, when you win championships.” Russell, seen above fighting Muhammad Ali for the last piece of baby backs, said only in response: “And I would’ve won more too, if it wasn’t for those crazy kids!”
Avid golfer Roy Hibbert didn’t mince words today, calling Shane Battier a cheapshot artist for that painful kick to the nads last night. “That wasn’t inadvertent. Battier knew what he was doing,” he said. After checking that video, I have to agree. Feel like I’ve seen that move before…
Bron Bron was a unanimous selection for 1st Team All NBA today, joining KD, Timmy, and CP3. But the biggest story is Kobe Beano Bryanto, who was named a 1st Teamer for a record 11th time, joining Karl Malone atop the list. The weird thing is Bryant has worked his whole career to get to where The Mailman is, but for some reason he couldn’t figure out how to run a pick and roll last season to save his life. Irony’s a bitch, right?
The Knicks have problems. More than the ones we already knew. Carmelo Anthony suffered a small left shoulder tear late in the regular season (which makes his playoffs slightly gutty, doesn’t it?), and JR Smith spent the postseason with fluid in his left knee. Both, you would think, impacted their play. This story is pretty depressing, so that pic above will hopefully make things brighter. Good luck injured Knicks, from these great asses!
