Much like my co host Tony Parks, Brad Rock thinks the Jazz are going nowhere untill they find some all stars.
Speaking of Tony, he is taking an online beating this morning for his bold prediction on yesterday's show, saying "bet the farm" on the Heat winning, of course they did not. Normally I miss no opportunity to pile on, but in this case, shout out to Tony for having the stones to put it out there! Strong opinions make sports radio fun, and this just in, playing that stuff up is what we do! Tony should be given credit, he obviously looks like a smart guy today, because he still has his eyebrows. Yep that was part of the discussion.
Here is 12 minutes of Dwayne Wade playing crappy defense.
Boris Diaw's behind the back pass was pretty awesome.
Our friend Tony Jones of the Trib explores the Julius Randle foot controversy.
Utah self reports 99 violations, most of which are ridiculous. Utah is playing the game, self report a bunch of minor stuff, take your medicine and stay off the radar. I by no means believe these are the only "violations" that have happened at Utah in that time period, I do believe the system is purposefully corrupt and needs to be fixed. NCAA rules are set up to create a "see no evil hear no evil" atmosphere and to make liars out of honest people. These are the "violations" Utah knew about, because these are the violations Utah wanted to know about (or people were willing to admit to). It's how the collegiate athletic game is played, probably a big reason things are changing. And before I get the angry tweets and emails, I said the exact same thing about BYU a couple of weeks ago.
Donald Sterling is now hiring PI's to ivestigate the NBA and it's owners. Which owners do you think are squirming after hearing that news.
Super conferences approved, for Utah high school sports.
Bill Simmons is kind of a diva.
John Oliver is back talking about soccer again, really can't help but love that guy.
Of course Hodor would suck at the Fued.
