New York Vinnie would truly like to give LeBron James his Propers for winning both the NBA MVP Trophy and his first NBA Title; but just like the “King Of Crappolla” could not bring himself to congratulate Dwight Howard after the Orlando Magic beat the Cleveland Cavaliers behinds in the 2009 NBA Eastern Conference Finals; New York Vinnie now finds myself in a similar situation. Your Old Pal New York Vinnie used to think that James was one of the good-guys of the NBA until “PUDLEY DO-WRONG” left his former team in a “FRICKIN” smoking hole to got to the Heat and then stuck out his tongue at the Cavaliers every time they messed up.
Now that New York Vinnie got that off my chest we can get to the real purpose of this column to talk about the two newest members of the Heat who according to “ESPN.com” signed contracts with the squad on Wednesday. When race-horses best days are behind them they are put out to pasture where they spend the rest of their days in comfort enjoying the company...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
It was never about money. The Celtics offered Ray Allen a two-year deal worth $12 million. Miami offered him what they could, which was only $9 million over three years. If Allen wanted to make as much cash as he could before ending his NBA career, he would still be wearing green. Instead, he has decided to sleep with the enemy. The feeling of betrayal Boston fans are coping with...
Anything to make a buck or two. Barstool Sports is selling a new Ray Allen T-Shirt that pokes fun of the former Boston Celtics guard’s nickname that he earned when he starred in the basketball movie “He Got Game.” Instead of it saying “Jesus Shuttlesworth,” it calls him “Judas Shuttlesworth.” Have to say, rather clever. [...]
Throughout this whole ordeal with Ray Allen turning his back on the Boston Celtics and choosing to sign with the team's biggest current rival in Miami, I have been strangely content. I have seen and fully understand the outrage spewing from fans of all ages, but I haven't been feeling that way.
Am I still checked out?
Admittedly, I went pretty much off the grid following...
MIAMI (AP) -- Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis have signed their contracts with the NBA champion Miami Heat, and will be introduced in news conferences later Wednesday.
Allen agreed to join the Heat on Friday. Lewis agreed to terms with Miami on Tuesday. Neither deal could be completed until the NBA's offseason moratorium expired Wednesday.
Allen will make just over 3 million this...
Hey, I may not think Ray Allen is a traitor, but this is a funny little spoof starring Ray Allen, Rondo and Kevin Garnett.
Irrevocable Differences with Rondo was Ray Allen’s number one reason why he left Ray Allen has taken less money to join the Miami Heat after departing Boston. Many have said that there are many reasons for this, and one of the main reasons was Allen’s deteriorating relationship with the Celtics’ starting point guard Rajon Rondo. [...]
For the Heat, the sole priority of free agency was achieved with such swiftness that Miami stood as the lone stop on Ray Allen's free agency tour. While Allen, who had grown disgruntled in Boston in the wake of repeated attempts by the Celtics to trade him, had sparked free agency interest from the Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves, all it took...
For the Heat, the sole priority of free agency was achieved with such swiftness, that Miami stood as the lone stop on Ray Allen's free-agency tour. While Allen, who had grown disgruntled in Boston in the wake of repeated attempts by the Celtics to trade him, had sparked free-agency interest from the Clippers, Grizzlies and Timberwolves, all it took was a single face-to-face...
Jason WhitneyOnce upon a time back in the ’90s, Ray Allen stared in the movie, “He Got Game” as Jesus Shuttlesworth. The Spike Lee movie is widely considered one of the best hoops movies ever made. So, how do you get your sharpshooter back that signed with the rival Miami Heat as a free agent? You make shirts with Judas on the front! That’s right, for $22 bucks, you can...
Every once in a while, Twitter reveals some interesting things. Usually, the social media network only reveals what Chad Johnson had for lunch, how many tummy crunches Brooke Burke Charvet did this morning or that Ashton Kutcher is still a dope. Occasionally -- such as when Mike Wallace's death prompted dismay from Pittsburgh Steelers fans mistaking the television journalist...
Last week, Careless Whispers was a disaster as That Other Guy’s lack of ability to run a simple switchboard resulted in him hanging up on all the callers. Or did it?

We have our first “upset” of this year’s Madness. Former Celtic (have to get used to saying that) Ray Allen’s AJ XIII away p.e.’s were crushed by Rondo’s Huaraches. Now obviously I know much of Rondo’s votes may have come after Ray decided to jet for Miami, but the fans have spoken. Rondo’s Nike Huarache bball 2012 received 63% of your votes to move on to the next...
