Beat - If you notice, they've since changed it to "Inactive." I'm assuming someone in charge wasn't too happy about the attempt at humor and decided to ixnay on the Old.

SI.com says that the reason Duncan didn't play being listed as "Old" was because that's what Spurs coach Gregg Popovich put on his lineup card before the game.

Yet another reason why I like Popovich.

Nobody bothered to mention this but Dwayne Wade clearly traveled (watch the FIRST highlight of it) on his 68-foot three pointer in the Heat loss to OKC on March 25th. He took three steps after his last dribble. I saw that on the replay during the game and spotted it immediately but no announcer mentioning anything about that, choosing instead to spend the entire time discussing whether he got it off in time (he did). But he also traveled:

Big Baby has averaged 24.5 points and 13 rebounds a game for the two games he's subbed at center for Dwight Howard, out with back spasms. Never knew Baby had those kind of numbers in him. Congrats to the large infant. He actually had NINE offensive rebounds in Monday's game against Denver. Wow.

After a terrible start to the season Baby is now averaging 20.6 points and 12.2 rebounds his last five games. Shocking. If he could do that for five games why couldn't he do it for longer. If he played like that for us he never would have been traded. But he actually played worse for Orlando than he played for the C's up until a couple weeks ago. Now he's Super Baby.

Video: O.J. Mayo ran to the wrong basket:

In the third quarter of Saturday night's game between the Memphis Grizzlies and Dallas Mavericks, Zach Randolph and Vince Carter met for a jump ball near the Mavs basket. Randolph won the tip easily, and Quincy Pondexter and O.J. Mayo ran a few feet back to retrieve the ball. That's what it looked like, at least, until Mayo ran in the other direction thinking he had a clear breakaway for an easy dunk. Apparently he lost his bearings while the referees were setting up the jump.

See it (after the commercial):

Now the announcers are saying he has matured...

funny how a run of 5 good games makes that happen.

And those same announcers thought that Tiger was "BACK" after winning the eastbyjesus invitational 2 weeks ago.

That lasted a long time too.

Lets see what BB does the next 5 games. Or when Howard returns.

He has some game but I do not think he has what it takes to bring it out on a consistent basis.

He could be a very solid reliable player I think but way too moody.

Who gives players "wet willies"? Delonte West does, apparently. Off his meds again.

I'm amazed the Jazz player didn't turn and punch Delonte in the face.

Gordon Hayward? He's more likely to sing accapella in high C than to start a fight DeMento West.

Will this surgery knock down his "street value", or will it enhance it (see last sentence)?


Dwight Howard will undergo back surgery on Friday morning in Los Angeles to repair a herniated disk.

The surgery will end his season and eliminate the possibility of his participation in the 2012 Summer Olympics.

"It hurts (emotionally)," Howard told ESPN the Magazine's Chris Broussard. "That's the first thing -- it hurts. And then with people saying and thinking I'm quitting on my team. This is a real issue. I tried to play through it and it just made my back worse."

Howard first complained of back problems in early March.

It wasn't until Los Angeles-based spine surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins examined him last week that the herniated disk was discovered.

Howard told Broussard he is not worried about any long-term ramifications from the surgery.

"The doctor said it's a one-inch incision," Howard told Broussard. "He said I can start rehab right away and be back to full contact in four months. So I'm not really concerned. If anything, I'll come back stronger."

The surgery will likely change the perception that Howard was sitting out in an attempt to have Stan Van Gundy replaced.

Holy Cow!

Did you see this elbow by Artest on Harden?

Don't expect to see him for a while. This is WAY over the top.

Jail time should be considered for a thug like him, and for a few clowns in the NHL who are targeting heads.

If you did that in any place other than a fighting/sports event you'd be thrown in jail for that.

What was the league thinking? MWP will never change, unless it is a Star Trek: Mirror, Mirror thing.

Ron Artest wins 2010-11 NBA Citizenship Award

What a joke, the league looks really bad when this stuff happens.
