Ron Artest AKA Metta World Peace’s case was that he was overzealous in celebrating a dunk over the Oklahoma City Thunder on this great Sunday. But the video shows a very brutal hit to the face of James Harden, and my reaction of total shock.
10 game suspension at least if you ask me. Knowing his history, and how the NBA has been cleaning up the game, wouldn’t be surprised he’s gone for the season. What do you think? Whoever guesses it right I’ll give you a shoutout of anything you want on my blog (keep it clean).
We thought that Lebron James getting the treatment from the NY superstars would do it, but I guess that Venus Williams was “aware” of Lebron’s imminent signing (unless this was all a Disney/ESPN sham) with the Miami Heat.
WASHINGTON – Venus Williams says LeBron James would look good in a Miami Heat uniform.
Williams spoke at the National Press Club on Wednesday promoting her new book and James was one of the topics she touched on during a question-and-answer session.
The Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., resident endorsed Miami as a new home for James, the prize of this year’s NBA free-agent class.
“I’m from Florida, so Miami certainly is the best place,” Williams said. “I actually have a slide show prepared, if he wants to watch, on why. But I’m sure he’ll make the right decision.”
The quote above was from the Metro website, which you can check up on Goolge. But I am pretty sure the sticking point was not getting an endorsement from Venus Williams, as much as playing with the most stacked lineup in NBA history.
And don’t argue that somehow the Lakers lineup of Gary Payton, Karl Malone, Shaq & Kobe was better, since those old legs couldn’t beat the Clippers if they had to play them in the finals.
Ric Bucher of ESPN has tweeted that Lebron James is taking a plane to Miami to meet up with executives tonight, the day before he announces his intentions tomorrow on ESPN. Here is the updated story here and the tweet.
The NBA free agency insanity is coming to an end: Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh have both agreed to sign with the Miami Heat. Terms about the deal between Bosh, Wade, and Pat Riley & Co. have not been released, but it has been stated that they will take a pay-cut in order to play together on the same team.
It isn’t clear whether the pay-cut assumes that they are trying to lure Lebron James to the Heat to join them, but currently Bosh & Wade have decided to play together.
It was rumored Chris Bosh was planning to go where Lebron James ended up signing with, but the rumors were squashed when Chris Bosh said he didn’t want to play with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Chris Broussard of ESPN has reported that it seems that around the league, the thought is that Lebron James’ current decision is whether he wants to play alongside Wade and Bosh, or if he decides to stay with his hometown team.
