Washington Post: The worst-of-all-time Charlotte Bobcats have elected not to renew the contract of Paul Silas, who had served as head coach since 2010.  While he’s out of a job for the time being, the real winner here is Silas.  Tyrus Thomas too.  He won’t have to watch his back in the locker room anymore.

Eye On Basketball: As expected, Rajon Rondo will be forced to sit out game two of the Boston/Atlanta series because of his chest bump with referee Marc Davis.  I guess that means it’s Keyon Dooling time!  Vladamir Radmanovic has already begun taping his ankles.

Orlando Sentinel: Glen Davis is not a dunker.  He’s a boulder, and he’s going to continue to run through people until the officials blow the whistle.

Pro Basketball Talk: Jordan Hill is a soon-to-be free agent without any NBA resume to speak of.  Although Hill, a former lottery pick of the New York Knicks, has probably earned himself a new job with his surprisingly-strong play in recent games, he’s now facing a new obstacle: staying out of jail.  Hill has been charged with felony assault for allegedly throwing his girlfriend against a wall before putting her in a choke hold.  If I was Hill, I’d simply tell the authorities “Metta did it.”

Youtube: So, you want to be the coolest motherf@cker in the club?  Master the Chris Duhon travel dance.  That sh!t’s hot.

Yahoo! TV: Lamar Odom still cares about basketball enough to give up his second career as a professional Kardashian.  Imagine the booing if Kris Humphries and Lamar Odom sign with the same team this offseason?

Washington Post: Caron Butler will be out about a month with a broken left hand.  That means his season is basically over.  The Clippers probably won’t be winning any NBA titles this season, but if they do… this poor bastard is going to need counseling.

Ball Don’t Lie: The 27-point comeback was pretty epic, but the highlight of the Clippers/Grizzlies game may have been the National Anthem.  It was performed by a seven-year-old cancer survivor, who did an excellent job and received a noisy ovation.

Huffington Post: Jay-Z designed the new Nets logo..er..removed the ring, changed the colors, and added a letter “B.”  I still think the whole team should be outfitted in fedoras and ROC chains.  The Brooklyn Hustlers–they’ll sell water to a whale!

The Basketball Jones: If you haven’t already seen that hilarious photo of Marc Gasol playing high-school ball, click here for a laugh.  Actually, you should click even if you’ve seen it; three bonus photos are included!
