Did Another NBA Player Yell A Gay Slur?


Looks like it is not just Kobe Bryant that has a gay slur problem when angry at NBA Games.  Joakim Noah may have just done the same thing tonight at an NBA playoff game as his Chicago Bulls took on the Miami Heat.

Check out the short clip above as TNT cameras caught Noah but this time, the commentators did not..comment about it. 

Since Kobe's comment, there have been several anti-gay slur ads run by the NBA.  Noah is not in them. 

So did Noah yell a gay slur and will he get fined and suspended since this is the playoffs?-Dr.FB

Prince & The NBA Playoffs “Laydown” For No One

Coolness. Prince's live version of "Laydown" from the George Lopez Show is now being used for the NBA Playoffs on TNT. TBS, where the Lopez shows airs, is a sister network to TNT, and was able to obtain the rights and obviously, a deal was worked out.

The song is from his still yet to be released in the U.S. CD 2010. I always thought this song should have led off the CD.

Regardless, it's nice to see him getting face time during the playoffs as the Bulls knock off the Heat. Er..I mean attempt to.-Dr.FB

Michael Jordan On LeBum’s Decision “There’s No Way I Would Do It”

Bill Parcells said it best.  "He hasn't won anything yet.  Don't anoint him."  He was speaking of Tony Romo but the same can be said about LeBron James. 

Until 2 weeks ago, LeBron James was called the "next Michael Jordan" and nicknames of "King James" and "The Chosen 1" when he doesn't have a ring to his name.  Yes, there is a reason why I chose a photo of Michael Jordan with all those rings.  James will never see that many rings unless Pat Riley let's him borrow his. 

I have been waiting to hear what Michael Jordan thought of Lebum's decision and it did not disappoint.

"There's no way, with hindsight, I would've ever called up Larry [Bird], called up Magic [Johnson] and said, 'Hey, look, let's get together and play on one team,'"

"But that's ... things are different. I can't say that's a bad thing. It's an opportunity these kids have today. In all honesty, I was trying to beat those guys."

Jordan speaks of a time where it was all about competitiveness and drive.  Something that James lacks.  He doesn't want to be the man taking the last shot. He wants to be the man who passes the ball to the man taking the last shot. 

Charles Barkley even weighed in stating:

"He'll never be Jordan," "This clearly takes him out of the conversation. He can win as much as he wants to.

"There would have been something honorable about staying in Cleveland and trying to win it as 'The Man' ... LeBron, if he would've in Cleveland, and if he could've got a championship there, it would have been over the top for his legacy, just one in Cleveland. No matter how many he wins in Miami, it clearly is Dwyane Wade's team."

Miami and most of Florida do not see the problem with James going to Miami.  From the way he handled it by having an hour special to announce it and saying "I am taking my talents to South Beach."  It wasn't so much arrogance, but that he still hasn't won anything. 

Make no mistake about it; his odds of winning one or a few went up by joining Wade in Miami, but his legacy is tarnished.  Sometimes, that means more.  If he wouldn't have done the 1 hour special, people still would have been upset.  If he went to Chicago, people would not be as pissed because he would be the man.

Last week's cover of Sports Illustrated said it all with the cover shot.  Lebum looking over Wade's shoulder.  It's clearly not his team and he will never have to worry about being compared to Michael Jordan ever again.-Dr.FB


The Boston Celtics Eliminate The Bulls In Memorable Playoff Series



The Boston Celtics eliminated the Chicago Bulls from the playoffs after a great playoff series.

You are not beating Boston at the Garden when it is game 7.  Said it all along.  Now, the Celtics will play the Orlando Magic on Monday night.  Will Orlando step up or sleep walk like they did against the 76ers in game 1 of the first round where they got spanked? I will be looking forward to Monday as well as my Los Angeles Lakers take on the Houston Rockets.

Tune in Monday.  Us?  We have a fight to cover and P. Diddy already beat us to our seat.-Dr.FB


Boston Celtics Versus Chicago Bulls Last Night…

You all see that triple overtime game last night between the Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics?  The Bulls won sending it back to the Garden for game 7.

I have said all along there is no way you are winning a game at the Garden if you are the road team that is a game 7.

Will Chicago prove me wrong tomorrow?-Dr.FB

The Cavs moved on.  The Lakers moved on.  The rest...well, it's kind of weird.

I did say that the Mavs would beat San Antonio.  I just did not know they would dismantle them.  Denver laying the smackdown on the Hornets by 58. The Hornets say it's just one game.  True, but only one team won a series after getting beat that bad.  They got beat so bad, Chris Brown took credit for it. 

These playoffs have been exciting by teams thinking they could sleep walk thru a series.  Yes, Orlando and Miami, I am talking about you.  Orlando will & has recovered, Miami will not.  Houston is about to eliminate Portland and move out of the first round without you know who, who can't get out of a first round.

The most exciting series hands down has been the Boston Celtics versus the Chicago Bulls.  3 over times in 3 games?  Seriously?  Another one last night that went the Celtics way with Ray Allen fouled out, Garnett in street clothes and Powe out for the season.  This series was the most exciting.  The Bulls may force a game 7 with a win on Thursday, but you are not beating Boston in a game 7 at the Garden.  Not. Gonna. Happen.  Not even Jordan did it.

As the Lakers and Cavs sit and wait, I will make this second round prediction; The Mavs will beat the Nuggets in the 2nd round to face the Lakers after L.A. knocks off the Rockets.  Take it to Vegas baby.-Dr.FB
