The NBA and NHL really know what they’re doing when it comes to scheduling their playoffs. Not only are we stuck in a time of the year where nothing happens but there is also NOTHING on TV that any sane person would watch. For God’s sake, Ape was bragging about watching some documentary on mermaids yesterday. Since we talked about the hilarious end to the Red Wings’ season already, why don’t we shift our focus to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals today (since game 5 happened last night and we will assume that the Heat won because they are going to win this series anyway). If you are one of those spunk junkies who thinks that the refs should not be fouling out the superstars like LeBron and Wade then take today off and go listen to your boy, Colin T. I am actually going to defend the indefensible today. Joey Crawford may be the absolute biggest ****-brick in officiating, but how can you blame him really? Every time that he or any other ref blows their whistle, they get ******* at or...

Behold The Double Flop: LeBron James, David West Utilize Their Acting Chops (GIF)

Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers was both awesome and terrible at the same time.

David West Calls Battier Dirty

Fellow flopper (and much tougher guy-actually, don’t tell him I mentioned the flopping) David West was asked today about his strategy when playing against Shane Battier: “I have to keep my guard up … watch my knees.” Gee, does that imply that Battier is out to hurt people? That he roams the stadium hallways holding lead pipes? That he camps out in his Chevy Tahoe next to...

Pacers size still too much for Heat

Before Indiana's 91-77 Game Six victory over Miami to force a decisive Game Seven on Monday, Frank Vogel said David West (nursing an injury) told him not to stop the fight. Like Apollo Creed against Ivan Drago, even if he was about to die, he wanted the fight to go on. Pride, country and Rocky Balboa were all in his corner depending on him. Maybe not all those things. But...
