Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Wondering how Jeremy Lin has been doing with the rockets down in Houston this preseason? The Rockets faced off against the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night. Jeremy Lin’s stats for the night, two points on one of eight shooting but he did hold his team down with 5 assists. His lone points of the [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Did the owner of the Houston Rockets push management into the signing of Jeremy Lin? Rumors out of Houston say yes. I hate to say it, but Lin is completely overrated as an NBA player and not worth the huge payday he received. I believe this deal will turn out to be one of the least valuable in recent years. Maybe that is kind of harsh, but I can’t help what I feel. NY made a intellectual...
The Rockets have completely revamped the roster, and while the year promises to bring excitement, the challenges this young team will face will require patience. The preseason so far has shown the ups and downs each player faces, and what they will need to address as the season progresses.

Behold Yao Ming's humanity.
Really drink it in. Watch him curl himself over his club. Watch him swing it like it's a pencil. Watch him pull his head and get all grass. It's what you want. It's what we all want.
We like to know our Goliaths can be taken down. We like to know Superman has a kryptonite. Just like us!
Is there anything more annoying than watching...
With Yao Ming now happily-retired, he can spend the rest of his life chilling with his millions of dollars. He also can be like most retired athletes and get into the golf game.
Apparently, not everyone is good at it. We have learned that from a lot of people, such as Charles Barkley or Chris Webber. For Ming, he isn’t exactly so great either.
But man, he was fun to watch...
Former NBA Center Yao Ming tries to start a new career in golf during his post NBA retirement. He’s so tall that it’s probably a little difficult for him to excel at a sport like golf…My advice would be to keep your head up and swing hard Yao.-TO

The Business of Yao Ming is Big
posted by Romy AquinoSo the Toronto Raptors got themselves a winner. Well, a social media winner. Remember 'Linsanity'? Remember that famous pic of the couch that Jeremy Lin slept on during that time? Well, that was a @LandryFields tweet from his days with the New York Knicks. And it won an award...an NBA social media award...entitled the 'Snap Shot' award...
Over the weekend, Yao Ming decided to hit the links and play a little bit of golf in China.For those of you wondering, how well does a 7'6 Asian guy play golf? It appears from the clip that Mr. Ming needs to work on his swing:
Video: Completely misses the golf ball
When I first saw the title of this video I thought I’d be watching Yao as a somewhat accomplished golfer. I didn’t think we’d be looking at PGA material, but I did think he’d be at a pretty legit level. Then I realized that the guy is 7’6″ and it’s just not in the cards. He looked pretty decent addressing the ball though… Yao playing with Ryan Reynolds, and Michael...

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Greg Smith scored 15 points, Jeremy Lin had 13, and the Houston Rockets routed the Orlando Magic 108-92 on Friday night in the final exhibition game for both teams.

The competition in the Atlantic Division could be the most intriguing in the Eastern Conference, as there are four teams in the running for the title.
The Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets were two of the most active teams in the offseason and should be improved. Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics added depth, while the New York Knicks boosted their roster too.
(4-2) vs. (2-5)
Time/TV: 7 p.m./FSFlorida
Line: Rockets by 1.5
Tickets: $1-$900 on Vivid Seats
Season Series: March 1 in Orlando; April 1 in Houston
The next time the Magic take the floor at Amway Center, the games will count (actually, it will be for an open practice Monday at 7 p.m.). There won't be time to learn anymore or time to make mistakes. Teaching moments will come with the penalty of losses and deep deficits.
Play time is over. The regular season is just a week away.
The Magic have plenty to work on before...
