Ex-Destiny’s Child member Farrah Franklin arrested after altercation with NFL’ers Da’Quan Bowers, Ricky Sapp

Remember back in 2000 when Beyonce’s former group Destiny’s Child switched members? Out with the old and in with two new members. One of those newbies was Farrah Franklin. Farrah only lasted in the group for 2.5 seconds -ok, five months, but still… Over the weekend, Franklin was arrested in South Carolina after Tampa Bay Buccs’ Da’Quan Bowers flew her out for the weekend...

‘Game of Thrones’ Giant is former McDonald’s All-American

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, the giants in last night’s episode were something to marvel at. Through the first 38 episodes of the show, giants had been mentioned, but never seen before. To fill the role of a giant, the casting director needed to find someone physically imposing to play the part. Enter Neil Fingleton, a 7-foot-7 former McDonalds All American basketball player...

No. 3 Can Be Tricky

May 20th was a night to remember for Philadunkia nation.  Of course we aren’t 100% happy that we didn’t land the first overall pick in the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft, but we did pretty well for ourselves by landing two Top 10 selections. In what some believe as the strongest draft class since 2003, we came away with both the 3rd and 10th picks.  In theory, Sam Hinie should be...

Is Andrew Wiggins more Melo than Bird? Or is he Darius Miles??

With our horrible record and some overdue luck, I’m starting to think the Celtics are going to land in the top 3 of the NBA lottery. That means we should pay extra attention to the likes of Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker (please turn pro) and Joel Embiid. David Nurse, a fairly well known skills development coach, wrote an extensive scouting report on Wiggins. Here are some excerpts...

#CavsRank – No. 16 Ron Harper: the great Cavalier ‘what if’

Unless you’re counting Ricky Davis or Darius Miles (which I am not), the Cavs didn’t have an another athletic wing like Ron Harper until they drafted LeBron James in 2003. Welcome to #CavsRank, the illustrious ranking of the best all-time Cleveland Cavaliers players from some of your favorite Cavs bloggers. Today, Ohio native Ron Harper checks in at No. 16.  “Cleveland, to...

DeAndre Dunkface Approved: CJ Miles ushers in a new rim-rocking season with this stuff over Orlando Johnson. Poor ORLANDO JOHNSON.

Portland Trail Blazers who fans love to hate

Not all roses in Rose City Throughout Rip City history, fans have grown unusually close to the players who have donned the pinstripe. In fact, it’s fair to say that Blazermaniacs have overvalued talent on more than one occasion, but the truth is, the phrase, “once a Trail Blazer, always a Trail Blazer” is more than just a cliché around the Pacific Northwest. Fans find it natural...

It’s all about “The Benjamins!”

Overpaid Northwest Athletes It seems more and more that money has no boundaries in the world of sports.  Each season, there is some unrestricted / restricted free agent who sees the $$$ being flashed by potential suitors, inking his name to some astronomical contract that is far more than the worth of a small country combined. Be it on the ice, turf or court, the yearly income of...

Comments from the Other Side - Cavs 3/27

Poor Cavs.  Like a lot of other teams that are playing for lottery position,  they want to lose for the better pick but they hate Boston so much they want to beat them.    I love the Rondo picture.  At least there's one thing Cavs fans and Celtics fans all agree on.   Some of my favorites are in bold.   Enjoy today's WINNING Comments....

Compilation of monster dunks by Stromile Swift

Stromile Swift was a pretty big sized bust. He was drafted 2nd overall by the Vancouver Grizzlies in the 2000 NBA Draft ahead of the likes of well…no one in particular. The 2000 NBA Draft was pretty awful. Darius Miles, Marcus Fizer, DeMarr Johnson, Chris Mihm, Keyon Dooling. That’s what we are working with. The best players from the first round were probably Mike Miller and...

In the land of repurposed jerseys, Cleveland fans can feel free to dust off those of Jamario Moon, Darius Miles, JJ Hickson and Larry Hughes kits. Ealier this week when Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant somehow managed to turn Jon Leuer into power forward Marreese Speights, shooting guard Wayne Ellington and point guard Josh Selby as well as a first-round pick that...

Hoopster Rocking a Darius Miles Cavaliers Jersey

This Darius Miles Cleveland Cavaliers jersey was sent in by fellow Hoopster Gibson Smith. We’ve seen a Darius Miles Clippers jersey before but haven’t capture a Cavaliers one yet, until now. So what else about Darius Miles can I tell you. Hmmm…he was taken third overall in the 2000 draft. This draft class was especially turdtastic as here’s some of the gems that were taken...

POTD Summer League Edition: Damian Lillard on Keith Benson

Young legs—the Vegas Summer League is full of ‘em.  Damian Lillard, Portland’s prized lottery selection, just turned 22 on the 15th, but he’s playing like a grown-ass man.  Through three games Lillard leads all players in points per game (a touch under 28), and he’s been able to lead the Blazers to a 2-1 record.  Thursday afternoon, Lillard had his biggest outing yet...

Greg Oden doesn't want to retire yet

I have a hard time lumping all NBA "busts" into one category. To me, the harsh classification of the word bust should be reserved for guys like Kwame Brown and Darius Miles. High draft picks, loaded with potential, who simply played a particularly poor version of NBA basketball throughout the life of their NBA careers. For guys like Greg Oden, who get hurt, stay hurt and...

Lob City: The Best Clippers Squad Ever?

Will Nic Batum Be The Next LaMarcus Aldridge Or The Next Darius Miles?

Many have been up in arms about the Blazers not signing Batum to a deal thus allowing him to become a restricted free agent this summer. This is typical for long time Blazer fans who will never forget how they felt when Drazen Petrovich and Jermaine O’Neal and Jermaine O’Neal became all-stars with the Nets and Pacers respectively. This train of thought has led small market franchises...

Draft. Resign. Cut. – From High School Straight to the NBA

Darius Miles. Jonathan Bender. Sebastian Telfair.  All there players jumped straight from High School to the NBA and were lottery picks. To say that they didn’t live up to expectations would be like saying that people in Cleveland were only slightly displeased with Lebron James decision to take his services to South Beach.

Hardwood Classic: D-Miles Drops 47 On Denver (’05)

You can choose to look at Darius’s career night in one of two ways: it was a fluke, or it’s what could’ve been.  Me?  I sincerely believe it’s the latter.  Fourty-seven points is obviously an unusual explosion for a player of any caliber, but had Darius really, truly given a damn about reaching his full potential on the court… maybe it remains his career-high...
