Is Paul Pierce A Blood?

OK so you saw him throw up a "B" right? Now, I'm not a Blood, but I used to be cool with Bloods, and it looks like Paul Pierce threw up their B. I've also seen that there are Bloods factions up in Boston (like everywhere else) - plus, dude is from Cali! Now, I laughed because I figured "nah, homey really isn't Blooded, is he?", but this apparently became a serious incident:

Now, the video they showed at the end, it looks like Paul is mimicing shooting dice! I mean, I know mad Bloods and cats in the hood in general who shoot dice. I don't see how that slow-mo video proved their point.

LMFAO @ "blood, sweat and tears", though. He could have at least said "I'm throwing up a 'B' for Boston pride" or some nonsense. In the first video, he was pissed, upset at how he got played, and looks like he threw up a B in retaliation, like "don't be slippin' once the game let's out".

What do you think? Was it worth a $25G fine? Check out this article from The Boston Globe for more insight.

RIP Will Robinson

HYSMD sends our condolences to the family in light of the recent passing of Will Robinson, who was the first Black coach of a Division I College, as well as the talent scout who brought both Joe Dumars and Dennis Rodman (and, arguably, the 1989 & 1990 NBA Championships) to the Pistons. He was 96.

[video] Joe Johnson Owns The 4th

ATL's Joe Johnson was all business in the 4th, dropping 20 (of 32) points on the Celtics and evening their series to 2 games apiece. Who expected the Hawks to be neck & neck with Boston? Same thing for the 76ers/Pistons series. Check out these videos:

Nets' TV Ratings Plummet

Not even these fly skimmies could get the Nets' fans tuning in:

It was only two years ago that the Nets beat the Knicks in local television ratings for the first time. But even with the Knicks having their worst season ever, the Nets’ ratings on YES were the worst for any NBA team on a regional sports network. The Nets only averaged .44 rating, a 41% decline. That works out to an average audience of about 30,000 households. The Knicks dropped 31% to a 0.98 mark, meaning the Knicks’ local TV audience was still more than twice as big as the Nets this season.

I am not surprised - I was one of those fans who stopped tuning in. Can't help it - by the time the All-Star Weekend came around, their focus was all but gone, and so was mine. Via NetsDaily.

Gunnin' For That #1 Spot

Via Wooohah!:

Beastie Boy member Adam Yauch (aka MCA) officially launched his own film studio Oscilloscope Records in February as he continues to develop his talents as a film director and producer. His first picture under Oscilloscope is a documentary called Gunnin' For That #1 Spot and follows eight current NCAA basketball stars (and soon to be NBA lottery picks) such as UCLA's Kevin Love, Kansas St.'s Michael Beasley and Jerryd Bayless of Arizona...

Documentary follows them as high schoolers as they prepare for the ultimate high school tournament "The Elite 24" hosted at the legendary New York Rucker's Park and deals with the pressures and dreams of a top high school basketball athlete. Gunnin' For That #1 Spot premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival end of this month and releases in theaters on June 27th. Check out the website for more details.

I'd definitely check this out.

Carmelo: Why?

What's really good, 'Melo? What were you doing driving drunk? Why mess up the Nuggets chances to make that 8th seed?:

Anthony was driving south on Interstate 25 at around 4 a.m. when he was pulled over and taken into custody. Denver police said he was driving a silver Mercedes and was stopped for failing to drive in a single lane and failing to dim lights. Several Denver media outlets reported that he was given a Breathalyzer test.

Is that even necessary? Or is it that you ain't give a f**k? You almost had one year trouble-free.

March Madness

Man...yesterday had some great games. Memphis is the real deal, folks. I doubted them but they have made a believer out of me. Check out this ridiculous smash by Chris Douglas-Roberts on Kevin Love (You ain't have to point at him afterwards, Joey orsey...just kidding, yes you did):

Memphis handled UCLA rather easily. From top to bottom, their team is ridiculously athletic and just plain bigger than their competition. I don't know how they managed to lose to Tennessee, but they're about to give Kansans some fits.

Speaking of the Jayhawks...

WOW! They put a beatdown on North Carolina somethin' serious! Thanks, Tar Heel bracket is officially dead now that you're on the bus back to Chapel Hill. I wasn't as cold as the boy Billy Packer though...There were roughly seven minutes left to play in the first half and that fool said that the game was over. Don't believe me? Juslisen:

Coldblooded! For all intents and purposes, the game really was done though. North Carolina gave it a great effort in the second half but the hole that they were in was just too deep to climb out of.

Monday night's matchup is going to be a great one. Look for the team who has the best backcourt production to leave San Antonio with the hardware. Mark my words.
