Bob Costas- Amen

I know this is supposed to be a basketball blog, but I thought I'd comment on the recent remarks of Bob Costas concerning excessive celebrations and showboating in the NFL since cocky celebrations are not just unique to football. I know many people have criticized his comments and want him to chill out saying it's just a game, but I think he has some very legitimate points.

I enjoy watching great plays and don't have a problem with spontaneous celebrations, but I'm getting sick of seeing so many lame, rehearsed post play attention seeking celebrations. Maybe I'm getting old and I'm probably not as fun as I used to be, but I agree with Costas and I'm glad someone brought this up.

PS- Turn your music down. It's too loud!

Good News

It appears the players and owners have reached an agreement and we may have NBA action starting up again on Christmas day. This is great news for a person with a blog dedicated to basketball. I was getting worried for a while there. I was considering changing the name of this blog to Morning Octagon and going the MMA route during the down time, but now we can get back to the sport we all love and hopefully see more action like this.

I can't remember if Van Gundy was able to submit Mourning with this submission hold or not but I would hate to mess with such a dangerous grappler.

Darryl Dawkins

Darryl Dawkins was one of my favorite players. Not only was Chocolate Thunder a power dunker, but he also had a very entertaining personality. How can you not like a guy who claims to originate from the planet Lovetron? I especially like the comments by Shaq at the end of this clip.
