NBA Fight: Rajon Rondo vs Kris Humphries

 

This NBA fight made no sense at all, I am not sure what Rajon Rondo was thinking.  Kevin Garnett got fouled hard by Kris Humphries, so Rondo felt the need to defend the NBA’s resident bully.  To make matter worse he was approaching Magic Johnson’s NBA record of consecutive games with 10 assists, but now that streak is over because he was ejected in the second quarter and only had 3 assists.  I think this is a  bad sign for Boston because Rondo is obviously getting frustrated with how the season is going, and if he can’t put his emotions in check the Celtics won’t go far in the post season.

But this altercation shows something else, this altercation shows what he thinks of KG.  Rondo must think KG is a real b@#!%,  otherwise why else would a guard feel the need to fight a big man’s battles.   I was also disappointed in Kevin Garnett for making Rondo stand up for him.  I’m not advocating fighting, but if it was someone smaller, I doubt if Garnett would have just walked away.  This incident shows that the Celtics team isn’t what it used to be.  Looking at the scores of games they can’t stop anyone on defense anymore, and in reality they haven’t really been an intimidating team since Kendrick Perkins left.  The signs all point that this is the end of the road for Boston, and judging by Rondo’s actions I think he agrees with me.

Philadelphia Eagles Team Quit on Andy Reid

 

The Philadelphia Eagles lost their 7th game in a row to the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football.  The punches keep coming at Andy Reid the Eagles embattled head coach, who knew his job was on the line coming into the year.  Now its a matter of time before he is fired.  It’s sad because by all accounts he’s a nice guy.  He gave Michael Vick a second chance, and then probably prematurely, a $100 million deal.  He is a players coach, and in the long run his players get what they want.  But how do they repay his loyalty to him? By quitting on him.

Michael Vick talked a lot in the off-season about what he was going to do, but when it was time to play, he had probably his worst season ever.  No one came through for Andy.  In fact it’s questionable whether the team quit in week 6, even though they still could have salvaged the season.  This Eagles team has talent on paper, but they have no heart.  They don’t do the little things it takes to win.  The sad part is that they have been making the same mistakes for about a year, and they don’t seem to want or know how to correct them.  Andy Reid had a great run in Philadelphia, but the way this team has fizzled out the last 2 years after all of the free agent signings, he will probably be more remembered for that than the numerous NFC Championship game appearances.  To make matters worse, the team had extra motivation this year as they were supposedly playing to honor the memory of Andy Reid’s son who passed away.  I guess their performance shows what they thought of Reid’s son.  It’s a sad end to Andy Reid, but he will bounce back, his reputation is too good not to.

Vernon Davis of San Francisco 49ers ESPN E:60 Interview

 

Vernon Davis has had a difficult life, but he had to learn how to deal with the emotions from that life so he could truly excel.  Vernon Davis mother was a drug addict, and his father wasn’t around.  Davis was the oldest, so he took responsibility for helping raise his younger siblings with his grandmother.  He did a good job considering his brother Vontae Davis is also in the NFL, but growing up like that will leave you with emotional scars.  Vernon Davis had those scars, and therefore he had trouble keeping his emotions in check on the field until Mike Singletary sent him back to the locker room during a game.  That was the wake up call that he needed, and since then he has found outlets for his emotions and in turn excelled on the field.

Lil Wayne Interviews Randy Moss for ESPN

 

Lil Wayne interviews Randy Moss for ESPN and did a surprisingly good job.  Moss is on a mission to win a Superbowl, which is why I think we have yet to see the best of Randy Moss this year.  The 49ers are waiting to unleash him until the playoffs, so teams won’t be expecting anything from him.  The tendency has been that whoever is hot at the end of season carries that momentum to the Superbowl, so we will see what the 49ers look like toward the end of the year.  I suspect we will be seeing more of Randy Moss by then.
