PLAYERS: Shane Battier
TEAMS: Miami Heat
You gotta hand it to Shane Battier for standing in and taking a charge that included a face full of Russell Westbrook’s package. You won’t see LeBron playing that kind of defense in a Heat, 110-100 win over OKC. Of course NBA idiots thought that last night actually meant something in the grand scheme of the season. It’s one f-ing game in mid-February that nobody will remember in 10 days. San Antonio has the NBA’s best record, 42-12, and there’s not one game you remember besides the one where Pops sat his starters against the Heat. That’s because regular season NBA is completely worthless. As always, wake me in mid-May. *Kisses, NBA dorks*     Odds & Ends: Wait until ESPN hears about this.     Finally, the NY Post doesn’t mind throwing a bikini shot of Oscar’s dead girlfriend on its cover. That takes big newspaper balls. Filed under: Morning Twitpics

Stan Van Gundy: “Lebron James is Already Better Than Michael Jordan”

I know what Stan Van Gundy was trying to say when he made this quote on the Dan Le Batard Show.  It is very simple, he is simply saying at this point in his career, Lebron is a more skilled player than Michael Jordan. That part of it is based in some truth, mainly because I don’t think we have ever seen anyone as skilled and physically gifted as Lebron. He is some crazy hybrid...
