PBT’s Friday morning one liners

1 Comment

Gilbert Arenas’ separation from his long-time, on-and-off girlfriend is an ugly mess.

Nicolas Batum felt his knee “stretch” on Thursday night and even though he thinks its nothing he will get an MRI Friday.

What about Tyson Chandler for All-Star center in the West?

Kobe Bryant will pass Hakeem Olajuwon on the all-time NBA scoring list tonight. Remember two summers ago Kobe went to Hakeem to learn more about how to post up.

Yes, losing LeBron was a big part of why the Cavaliers suck this season, but don’t forget how badly they’ve drafted the last six years.

Mark Cuban calls the Forbes franchise valuations we all use “useless.” (Note: They are not perfect, but in a world where there are no other valuations out there fans and media will use the information available.)

About those valuations: If you’re a visual learner like me, seeing the Forbes data on NBA teams in graph form makes it easier to grasp (and see how much debt the Nets have).

Jerry Sloan knows that Andrei Kirilenko plays better as a starter. Everyone knew already but Sloan benched him anyway.

Mike Bibby missed Hawks practice Thursday but is expected to play Friday. Hawks fans can decide for themselves if that is good or bad news.

Watch one of the Suns dunk squad entertainers dunk himself through the rim.

You’re going to have to wait until next week to get your Peja fix. Sorry.

Lon Babby wanted to clear things up with Suns fans — and let you know they are trying. Really hard.

Kwame Brown and Michael Jordan are good now.

Anderson Varejao is putting off ankle surgery to get another opinion.

Vince Carter has accepted things are different in Phoenix, and he likes he new role.

Michael Redd plans to return to court in March. Yes, Redd. You’d laugh but the way the Bucks offense is right now they should welcome him with open arms.
