Too bad it took Kobe's death to make the NBA All-Star game watchable -- at least the final few minutes of it

The refs were way too involved, and it was kind of lame to have it end on a FT. But that was the best all star game I’ve ever seen. Well done, NBA.

Side note: Kyle Lowry is nuts. He drew two successful charges before committing the foul that ended up costing his team the game. Dude's competitive, but WTF, man? Save it for your attempted title defense.

Chris Paul should have been the MVP, but Kawhi is a decent choice too.

 

I was rooting for him so hard. He definitely made more of an impact in the 4th quarter, plus last time he won it he had hair.

Bye bye Beilein

 

Quote

After a brief and tumultuous tenure, John Beilein is leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers as coach, league sources tell ESPN.

 

The Cavaliers are promoting associate head coach JB Bickerstaff to become the full-time head coach, and he'll run his first practice on Wednesday evening, league sources said.

 

Bickerstaff is kind of a grim reaper, isn't he?

Whole bunch of Power 5 + Big East and American coaches just lemon booty as we're about to get into Championship Week.

 

Shaka Smart at Texas

Archie Miller at IU

Mike Hopkins at Washington

Bruce Weber at K-State

Danny Manning at Wake

Jim Christian at BC

Dave Leito at DePaul

Richard Pitino at Minnesota

Chris Collins at Northwestern

 

And that does not include an AD who may just want to hire him to get better.

Drummond played one? Two games with Beilein?

 

JB's career record is 85-131. That .394 winning percentage is going to go down for sure.

Even before his promotion, JB was one of the highest paid assistants at $1.6M.

 

The Athletic goes over how quickly it unraveled and how Beilein wasn't the disease, he was just another symptom within Cavs management as a whole since Dan Gilbert bought the team.

If someone looped Hubie Brown talking NBA from since he took a TV role, I'd buy the subscription and listen to it as I sleep. 

 

I love Hubie Brown*!

 

*-I love Dick Motta too, because I love to tell the tale that I bought Dick Motta a Scotch.

The Raptors are completely dominating the Pacers tonight. Me likey.

EDIT:
Final score: Toronto 127, Indiana 81.
It is the largest margin of victory in the Raptors' entire history.

Who peed in the Clippers' corn flakes? LA up 51-18 in the second.

 

Memphis' trade with Miami at the deadline made the team weaker, and Jaren Jackson is out, and also life is a nightmare.
