So the kid who survived the South Side of Chicago, one of America's harshest urban battlegrounds, is now a wimp. Yeah, the kid who learned the game getting bullied and beat up by three older, basketball-playing brothers has grown soft at the tender age of 24. Derrick Rose is a p---y. I ain't buying it. No way. Chicago's Englewood neighborhood swallows cowards for snacks, shortly before they complete puberty.

Comments from the Other Side - Miami Heat Game 1 Bonus Edition 5/6

It's always fun to see the Miami bandwagon fans melt down after a loss.   It's so funny to see them complain about the officiating when they get the benefit of the calls 99.9% of the time.  In a game where the opponent took just 4 free throws more than them,  they are certain that the game was fixed.   They are used to getting all the calls and when a crew calls is...
