Beyond The Buzzer:
Brooklyn Nets head coach, Jason Kidd, threw out the ceremonial first pitch Wednesday night prior to the Yankees-Dodgers game at Yankee Stadium. Kidd walked out to the mound with his youngest son, Chance, and threw a strike to Yankees catcher, Austin Romine. According to ESPN: Jason Kidd doesn’t remember if his first ceremonial first pitch, thrown in 2002, was a strike…His second one most definitely was. On Wednesday night, the Brooklyn Nets coach threw a strike from the top of the Yankee Stadium mound to Yankees catcher Austin Romine. “There’s a lot of pressure,” Kidd said before throwing the pitch. “I’m excited and nervous at the same time. Hopefully I don’t bounce it up there.”

When I was a junior high schooler, Isiah Thomas was one of my favorite players. When my Dad and I hit the courts every Saturday morning, he’d encourage me by saying my skill could compensate for my small size a la Zeke. From that moment on, I always admired Thomas. Until he came to New York and ruined my Knicks. Now, I cringe anytime Thomas’s name and the Knicks are mentioned...
A few nights ago a trade rumor hit the air waves with the Knicks considering trading Tyson Chandler for Luke Ridnour, Derrick Williams, and the 26th pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.
