landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
I love me some NCAA hoops, but this is pretty spectacular. Hard to imagine basketball being much more entertaining.
That is all.
I'm a casual NBA fan -- I don't follow everything going on. So was a bit surprised to not see Mitch on the bench in these playoffs.
Looking into it, I see he took a leave of absence in April for undisclosed reasons -- he's not listed as injured. I'm not looking for baseless speculation as to what the leave was all about. Family, most likely.
I see from his Twitter feed that he is now traveling with the team and in his usual Big Puppy mode, smiling and bouncing around. So I guess the break from the game left him a little bit out of the kind of shape these guys need to be in for the playoffs? Or is it tactical?
NBA people -- any thoughts on why he isn't back on the Thunder's bench?
Scott Skiles has resigned after one season as head coach of the Orlando Magic. He says he just wasn't the right coach for the team.
In our world, Skiles will forever be remembered as the Sparty a-hole who repeatedly called Antoine Joubert "fat boy."

I had not seen this until just now. After Tuesday night's Warriors game it appears one of our favorite Spartans played a one man game of freeze tag during the post game presser and lost.
Per his high school team, 6-6 wing Harold Baruti, an unsigned senior out of Mountain Mission HS (Grundy, VA), is headed to Michigan today for an official visit. Rivals has him as a three star with offers from SMU and UNC-Wilmington. Highlight reel below.
