We didn’t send a gift — we were going to go with the indoor composter — but congratulations to Golden State’s Stephen Curry, who married longtime girlfriend Ayesha Alexander.
We knew about this because Stiletto Jill had the engagement pictures up, then The Basketball Jones noticed that one of those is going to fuel some locker room heckling next season. Look at the photo to the right, she looks beautiful and he looks 12. Yea, that’s coming up in conversation.
What may be of more interest to Warriors fans is how Curry is doing after ankle surgery this summer.
Curry will be ready to go by November, he told the San Francisco Chronicle. He is working on his rehab now.
Let’s just hope the rest of the league is ready to go in November. Sorry Ayesha, but we don’t want you and your husband to have an extended honeymoon.
Alan Anderson had surgery last May on his left ankle to remove some bone spurs. This wasn’t seen as anything major, so the Washington Wizards signed him to a deal and are counting on him to bring some versatility and depth to their wings.
However, that same ankle has bothered him since the opening of training camp and on Tuesday the Wizards announced that he had undergone another surgery to “remove a small bony fragment in his left ankle.”
There is no timetable for his return.
The Wizards liked Anderson because of his shooting and versatility — he can play the two, three or four depending on the lineup. The Wizards are counting on a combination of Otto Porter, Jared Dudley, and Anderson to fill the void left by Paul Pierce.
But they are going to have to wait a little while for Anderson to join the party.
Kevin Garnett is as good a trash talker as there is in the NBA right now. He’s one of the games’ legendary talkers.
And he welcomed Bulls rookie Bobby Portis to the NBA in his own special way during Saturday’s Chicago/Minnesota preseason game. From Vincent Goodwill of CSNChicago.com.
Beautiful use of the Honey Nut Cheerios reference.
Hoiberg was a teammate of KG’s back in Minnesota from 2003-2005. Hoiberg did nothing but praise Garnett after the game. He’s probably good with KG pushing Portis.
Watch out for Portis this season, he’s going to show he shouldn’t have fallen so far down the board.
