Stuff That Made Me Chuckle

The NBA said yesterday that it will not fine the Blazers because Pres Larry Miller threatened to sue any team that signs Darius Miles. In a public statement the league said that having Miles contract count against their cap space is punishment enough. Any team that would willingly sign Miles to a $9 Million contract has punished themselves. Any league punishment would just be salt in the wound.

The D-League has granted some team a protest in their loss to some other team because one of the teams players was inadvertently fouled out. The coach from some team could be heard shouting “Do Over! Do Over!” as the game ended.

The Knicks Eddie Curry is being sued for what amounts to being a horrible human being. One of the complaints from the “victim” is that Curry ask him to do “"humiliating tasks outside the scope of his employment, such as cleaning up and removing dirty towels [into which Curry had ejaculated] so that his wife would not see them," the Manhattan federal court suit says” On a side note, it makes feel better about myself. I thought I was the only guy that j*zzed into towels.

Irvin: Men in truck flashed gun, talked Cowboys from by news services
Hall of Fame receiver Michael Irvin says he calmly chatted with a gunman in another vehicle after the armed passenger turned out to be a Dallas Cowboys fan.

Michael, your verbiage is a little mixed up. The gunman was not a Cowboys fan. He was your accomplice.

Assistant coaches injured after four-floor fall.
Two assistant coaches apparently wrestling with each other fell through a hotel window Tuesday morning and fell four stories to a concrete sidewalk, leaving one in serious condition.

We are still waiting to find out if the two coaches were Mangini and Crenell.
