Look at the bright side Clips fans; it started off well for you guys. Against the last night, the jumped out to a nice lead in the first half. Blink. Next thing you know, Shaq¿s gone for 42 and the have lost by 17 points ¿ The only thing that could slow down and Steph last night was President Bush. The President¿s speech was broadcast live on America West Arena¿s screens as players warming up and early arriving fans took it in. Matrix and Steph went on to drop 30 and 25 respectively in their OT win over the ¿ The Cavs announced that they weren¿t going to fine for his antics against the the other night because his embarrassment has been punishment enough. Nice, except we¿re pretty sure this guy doesn¿t get embarrassed by anything ¿ In a move that¿s been years in the making, Steve Lavin was officially fired by yesterday, following the Bruins¿ first losing season since 1948. Possible replacements include Larry Brown, Rick Majerus and Pitt¿s Ben Howland ¿ Speaking of new coaches, the Westchester of the USBL named John Starks their new head coach yesterday. Fast forward to the first timeout during a game when Starks yells at someone for taking an ill-advised shot. Can you hear the laughter from the huddle? ¿ Of course there was no way the Blazers and could go a whole game without and/or getting slapped with a T. Ron-Ron came dangerously close just 7 seconds into the game when, in an effort to stop Patterson on a breakwaway, Artest pulled him by his jersey and almost started to swing him around. Patterson got a tech a little while later for hanging on the rim ¿ After the ¿ loss ¿ and an avalanche of boos from the fans - J.O. put a lot of the blame on the ¿ offcourt distractions: "My stepfather is fighting for his life every single day," (after suffering a gunshot wound) O'Neal said. "As humans we go through a lot, but we will get it together. Don't walk away from us. My heart is heavy" ¿ Did you catch The Roots on Kilborn last night? Sick ¿ We saw yesterday that Hustler is doing a clothed pictorial with woman portraying furniture. It¿s about time. I think we were all getting tired of the naked, naughty, sorority babe thing right? Yeah, who wants that ¿ We¿re out like non-topless girl furniture.
