Tales of the NBA Lockout

1. First up, Delonte West applying for a job as a furniture mover. Is the money really that low, DWest? Also, check out the reason behind his conviction of a crime:

2. Next up, Ben Wallace digs himself a hole with a DUI and a gun charge at the same time.
“Mr. Wallace said he knew he was in the wrong, and he shouldn’t have had the gun, he also told me that he was a criminal justice major in college,” Lt. Mark Paquin wrote in his report.

3. Speaking of holes, some random Chinese league team just dug their own by giving JR Smith millions to play there this season. There’s no way he tries his hardest over there:
Smith signed a $3 million contract with the Zhejiang Chouzhou Golden Bullsaccording to Jon Pastuszek at NiuBBall. Per league rules, Smith’s deal does not include an opt-out clause that would allow him to return to the NBA when the lockout ends.

4. Last up…well at least the lockout doesn’t take away a new NBA2K game. Here’s the 2012 promo ad, featuring rapper Drake and MJ:

Did Pippen Just Say Lebron Will be Better Than Jordan?

On top of that, did Scottie Pippen say that Lebron James ALREADY IS better than Jordan? Either way, Scottie must be on some powerful drugs. That argument isn’t even foreseeable unless Lebron grabs a few championship rings. Check out what #33 said earlier today on ESPN Radio:

Are We Ready to Buy Into the "Jordan Comeback" Talk?

This is one of those stories that could go either way. I either look like a Jesus hopping on to the MJ un-retiring bandwagon first which makes Token Sports look great, or this never pans out and I’m an NBA blogging fraud. Here’s an uber-sensationalized promo video (likely fan-made) as a tribute to the possibility of MJ coming back to the NBA at the age of 48. I know, it’s a stretch, but the video gets you thinking:

Did the Michael Jordan Comeback Just Begin?

48-year-old Michael Jordan practiced with the team he owned the other day in Charlotte. Bobcats coaches and players were impressed with the skill set that Jordan still had for his age, which raises the question: Is this the beginning of a comeback to the NBA for MJ? It’s not that crazy. As MJ heads towards 50, he will definitely wonder if he could still hang in the League. He’s Michael Jordan. He could just sign himself to the Bobcats whenever he wants. Think about it:

Easier Said Than Done

Now that Michael Jordan‘s ridiculously historical career is over, he’s now sitting back and knocking how the NBA has changed since his playing days. He recently said this about playing in today’s NBA:

“It’s less physical and the rules have changed, obviously. Based on these rules, if I had to play with my style of play, I’m pretty sure I would have fouled out or I would have been at the free throw line pretty often and I could have scored 100 points.”
What do you think? Easier said than done or definitely the truth?
