Taylor Swift showed her love for the Los Angeles Lakers last night at her show.

During her encore, she put on a number 13 jersey with Swift on the back.  FYI, a little tid bit of info, 13 is Taylor's lucky number.  The Swift one sold out the Staples Center in less than a minute. 

Lots of bad karma is coming Denver's way after kicking WWE out of of the Pepsi Center.  Where will WWE go?  Why, the house that Taylor rocked last night, L.A.'s one and only Staple Center.

Much love to the talented Taylor Swift and Go Lakers!!!!-Dr.FB

Marc Cuban Has Words For K-Mart & His Mom

Marc Cuban Roots On His Cavs.  File PhotoMarc Cuban had words for Kenyan Martin's mom after his Mavericks lost to the Nuggets after game 3. 

He called K-Mart a thug and a few other unkind words directed towards Martin's mom in the stands the day before mother's day.

Word got back to Martin and he said he would handle it face to face.  Nothing happened on Monday when the Mavs beat the Nuggets but Marc Cuban took to his blog to apologize to Martin and his mom.

Cuban said:

It started as a smart ass comment that I know that no one heard. How do I know, because there was a reporter right there next to me, as well as other people who saw the whole thing and didn't hear a word of it.

But at this point, that has become irrelevant. It doesn't matter why I said it. I shouldn’t have said anything. Now, the reality is that this has gotten out of hand.

When tempers and such start impacting the fan experience both in Dallas and Denver, and it requires special security, that's not what I want for Mavs or Nuggets fans. No one takes more abuse and gets more threats on the road than I do. So I know exactly how it feels. I’ve also had my family and friends spit on at games in this series. So I know how unpleasant that is as well. It’s a dirty secret that all arenas need to do a better job of protection for visiting team fans, particularly during the playoffs.

So at this point I would like to apologize to you and your mom KMart for my comment. I should have not said anything and I was wrong. Hopefully you will accept the apology and we can move on.

When the series comes back to Dallas, your family, and the family of other Nuggets players are welcome to stay in my suite, with my family. Its amazing how tempers mellow when real people talk to each other and realize that its still just a game.

If that isn’t acceptable, I’m happy to provide a suite, free of charge to them as well and place whatever security is needed to make them feel comfortable.

We tried to have enough additional security for them tonight as well, but I know your family and friends didn’t feel as comfortable as they should. I apologize for that as well. This arena is my responsibility, we could and should do a better job.

So if we can put this behind us, I will make sure when the series comes back to Dallas, your family and friends, and that of your teammates are very comfortable at our Arena.

Then I hope we both take the advice of your coach and can get together this summer. Dinner for you and your family is on me.

My thoughts; Cuban was in the wrong and he knew it as soon as he said it.  He led with his heart and not his mind as an owner of a team who just had a devastating loss.  My advice?  Take what Cuban gives you and charge everything to the room and take that dinner and order the entire menu.  Each person order the entire menu.-Dr.FB

Bulls Versus Celtics & NBA Playoff Round-Up

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
