Delonte West is one of the most bloggable NBA players around. He’s about to find out first-hand, as West has started a once-a-month blog diary with ESPN Boston, in which he’ll pull from his bottomless internal well of blog-worthy material.
It may not be Delonte completely unplugged, but his first post covers a lot of ground: Delonte dives into his introduction to Celtic life and offers another window into Boston’s infinitely amusing preseason camaraderie. So, if you’d like to find out why Delonte West is the only human being that still plays Crash Bandicoot, check it out. If not, what’s wrong with you?
The Grizzlies lost for the 15th time in their last 16 games, a 25-point drubbing at home against the Heat, last night.
But it wasn’t all doom and gloom in Memphis.
This young fan – while playing in the halftime scrimmage – stopped his dribble, stepped on the ball, whipped off his youth jersey to reveal a Marc Gasol jersey, flexed, re-started his dribbled then drove for a basket.
Matt Ellentuck of SB Nation:
The Grizzlies don’t deserve this hero.
For better or worse, DeMarcus Cousins is moody.
Just after getting dunked on by Clint Capela, Cousins showed his frustration by pushing Trevor Ariza after a whistle. The Pelicans center got his NBA-leading ninth technical foul – automatic suspension triggered at No. 16 – but I’m surprised this didn’t escalate beyond just that.
The Thunder suffered a rough home loss to the Hornets, but at least Oklahoma City produced a couple fun highlights.
Not only did Russell Westbrook have this powerful dunk, Paul George put the moves on Jeremy Lamb.
David West is 37 years old.
