Kurt Rambis Hired by the Timberwolves

Filed under Basketball

Kurt Rambis will soon officially become the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. As we speculated last week, he’s been the leading candidate for the head coaching position for a while. Rambis’ deal will reportedly be worth more than $8 million over the next four seasons. Rambis was a head coach in the NBA for the Los Angeles Lakers a stint during the 1999 lockout-shortened season. While it has been reported that Rambis would eventually take over the reins from Phil Jackson in Los Angeles where he’s been serving as an assistant coach, Rambis apparently didn’t want to wait any longer. With the T’Wolves, Rambis is taking on a rebuilding job that could take years to turn around. Al Jefferson and... [Read more]

Josh Hamilton, the slugger for the Texas Rangers, admitted on Saturday that he did indeed relapse on alcohol in January. Earlier in the day, Josh Hamilton drunk pictures were released on Deadspin.com. Said Hamilton: “I’m embarrassed about it. For the Rangers, I’m embarrassed about it. For my wife, my kids. It’s one of those things that just reinforces about alcohol.” In the pictures, Hamilton is seen with a number of women — all of whom aren’t his wife. There is also whip cream utilization. On the season, Hamilton’s production is way down. After hitting .304 with 32 homers and 130 RBIs last season, Hamilton is hitting just .235 with eight homers and 33 RBIs this season. He’s... [Read more]

Brandon Jones Fractures Right Shoulder

Brandon Jones, a wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, has suffered a fractured right shoulder and will miss about eight weeks. Jones was acquired by the Niners in the offseason after playing his first eight seasons with the Tennessee Titans. The loss of Jones especially hurts San Francisco due to the holdout by rookie wide receiver Michael Crabtree. Now their already thin wide receiving corps is even thinner. Last year with the Titans, Jones had his best season. He finished with 41 receptions and 449 yards. The 26-year-old played his college football at Oklahoma. The injury to Jones could open the door for someone like Arnaz Battle or Dominique Zeigler to get more snaps in training camp and have a better chance of making... [Read more]

Tony Parker Plays for France versus Finland

After a couple weeks of drama that included injuries, airplane rides and interviews, Tony Parker was back on the court for the French national team on Saturday. France was able to beat Finland by a final score of 82-72. Parker’s play was extremely limited. After playing the game’s first five minutes, he was on the bench for the rest of the contest. His teammates didn’t have much trouble as they used their superior talent to topple the hot-shooting Finland squad. After hurting his ankle in an exhibition affair, Parker was eventually ordered back to San Antonio so that Spurs doctors could take a look at the injury. Once he arrived in San Antonio, the Spurs doctors agreed with the French assessment that the injury... [Read more]

Ben Wallace made his name while playing for the Detroit Pistons. According to numerous reports, Ben Wallace has agreed to return to Detroit and play for the Pistons once again. Wallace will reportedly sign a $1.3 million contract for one year. The contract should become official by the end of next week. Between the 1999-2000 season and the 2005-06 season, Wallace was one of the best defensive players in the league for the Pistons. He averaged at least 11.3 rebounds per game in each of those seasons. In the 2004 playoffs, he helped Detroit win the NBA championship. Since leaving the Pistons to sign a large free agent deal with the Chicago Bulls, Wallace’s stats have slowly but surely plummeted. Last year, while playing... [Read more]
