So as of today, Phil Jackson is back in the NBA. Everyone is wondering where the hell he’s going to coach, but the truth is… he’s not. He took on a job with the Detroit Pistons as a lead advisor to the team. A.K.A. listen to everything Phil says and then have the coach tell it to the players. The Pistons can really use his advising, good to see he’s back in the NBA.
One of the most over-hyped quarterbacks in NFL history has finally been released by the Jets, this just in 4 hours ago. Head coach Rex Ryan had this to say about the situation.
“Unfortunately, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason. We wish him the best moving forward.”

If there’s one way to stop the Miami Heat, then three of their best players getting sick is the way to do it. Apparently D. Wade, Chris Bosh, and Ray Allen all have the flu today and will not be playing. This will be a true test of Lebron can handle leading the team all on his own. They play the Los Angeles Clippers in Miami tonight.
The news that almost everyone in Seattle has been waiting to hear since the original Sonics were shipped off to Oklahoma a few years back. Seattle is getting a new NBA team! Yahoo’s Adrian Wajnarowski got word from sources just a bit ago…
“The deal will sell the Kings for approximately $500 million to a group led by hedge-fund manager Chris Hansen and Microsoft chairman Steve Ballmer. The group is seeking to relocate the franchise to Seattle’s Key Arena for the 2013-14 season.
The Seattle group’s plans, with support of the NBA, is to play two seasons in Key Arena before moving into a new Seattle arena, sources said.
No agreement has been signed, but one source with knowledge of the talks described the deal as “first and goal at the 1.”
The Chris Hansen led group from Seattle wants to bring the team back immediately after this season ends, with the team playing in the old Key Arena as the new stadium is being constructed in Seattle’s Sodo district, home of the Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Mariners. Tacoma, WA native and UW Alumni, Isaiah Thomas and Seattle native Aaron Brooks both play for the Kings currently.
Time to celebrate, Seattle.
This is very good news for the skate world. Pharrell thought it would be a good idea to relaunch the Ice Cream skate team just as the brand hits Zumiez. Here’s what to expect…
“The 38-year-old receiver said on Twitter on Sunday that he had been cut by the Seattle Seahawks. NFL teams must reduce their rosters from 90 to 75 players by 4 p.m. ET on Monday.”
“I’m no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I’m truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver,” he wrote.
“Owens, who hadn’t played in the NFL since 2010, signed with the Seahawks on Aug. 6 after an impressive workout.”
Looks like all that talk about T.O. earlier is finally over and he has joined the Seahawks for one year. We posted about him meeting with the team earlier and got a lot of mixed reactions from the town. We’ll see how this works out in the long run, glad that he’s finally found a team and can stop being so depressed all the time now, no more crying on TV. Click HERE for the full report.
Things aren’t looking too good for Blake Griffin right now. Days after he signed his $95 Million extension with the Clippers he has to return to Los Angeles after sustaining a knee injury during a USA Team scrimmage. Hopefully this injury isn’t too bad but he will be missing the first Team USA game in Las Vegas.
Looks like Maybach Music Group just added a new team member to the roster. Rockie Fresh signed his papers yesterday and is ready to take over the game with Rozay. It must be nice coming onto a team that is currently dominating hip-hop. Can’t wait to see what Rockie Fresh has to add to the team. Here’s a little taste of what to expect…
A lot of people weren’t expecting this move to go down since Ray Allen is losing a lot of potential money, but is happened anyways. Ray Allen will now be playing for the Miami Heat with D. Wade, Lebron James, and Chris Bosh. If you ever needed ANOTHER man to kick out to for a 3-pointer, this is the guy. Sure Mike Miller had some good games in the playoffs, but Ray Allen just doesn’t seem to miss ever. This will most likely be a very good fit for Allen and Lebron James seems to think the same. If they move the ball around enough and focus all attention on Lebron as always, Allen will be there to hit that clutch jumper. Very good decision by Ray Allen joining a championship team and going for the gold. It is guaranteed that Ray Allen will be the first one to practice and games hours before they start as he has been with all his teams.
