The new episode of the Real World Portland sure was swell. In this episode, Qyntel (just a couple days after being caught with that mari-ju-ana stuff) and Ruben get into a very noisy argument while at practice. When Qyntel's friend, Zach, comes over to check out what all the commotion is about, he finds that Qyntel is desperately in need of his help. Like a good friend, Zach steps in and knocks out the smaller Ruben without the little Ruben ever knowing that Zach is even there. Ruben, along with his black and blue eye and heavily bleeding face, vowed revenge in the confidential room. This week's show went off the air with Zach being suspended by the boss for two outings, fined $100,000, and the team losing to the very mature . Boy, we can't wait to see what happens in next week's episode. Would someone please send us some prozac because these losses are all becoming very depressing? Shareef definitely didn't call glass on his game winner last night. The ' loss will make it very difficult for Jordan to end his career with one last playoff run. Speaking of MJ, you don't piss off the hand that feeds you, and that is exactly what Carolina did. The Tar Heels' most famous alum was very angry at how the Carolina brass handled the Matt Doherty firing. Jordan expressed concern that by forcing Doherty to resign the university sent a message to the team that they were in control and not the coach. North Carolina had concern that many players on the squad were either going to transfer or declare too early for the NBA, specifically to get away from Doherty. The have to be feeling a little more confident after beating the Mavs on the road and doing it with a below average game from Kobe. Kobe looked almost human through three quarters but turned it on in the fourth and became his normal alien good self. We have no idea how Ron Ron avoided a suspension after giving the fans the double one finger salute on Wednesday. Artest will be fined 20 g's, which in NBA currency is approximately 38 cents. Congrats to St. Johns for winning their seventh NIT title with a solid win over G-Town. We have to admit seeing the NYC fans storm the court was pretty hot, and is possibly the biggest bad ass in college ball. Spending Sunday night in the big city? Check out the ridiculous show at the Roseland Ball Room. The lineup has more talent the East Coast All Star Squad. Talib Kweli, Gang Starr and Common under one roof. Sick. We're out like any semblance of chemistry, normalcy or reality in Portland's locker room.
