Bad ideas all around: Tyson to Broadway, Ibaka rips LeBron, baseball announcers go batty
One could easily make the case that the very reason Mike Tyson has to put on Vegas shows slurring and spatting about the depressing, hilarious and downright frightening things that have happened in his tumultuous life is because of certain multi-million dollar individuals who want to make a buck off of him.
In other words, it’s shocking that it has taken Spike Lee this long to latch on to Tyson. Spike is jumping into Broadway for the first time – likely because it’s the last New York-ey thing he HASN’T yet done. He also said that he saw a DVD of Tyson’s Vegas show and wanted in ASAP.
Tyson’s wonderfully filthy show, which goes into detail about the time he nearly caught his wife, Robin Givens, bouncing on the lap of Brad Pitt among other things, is perfect for Vegas. But Broadway?
This sounds like another Magic/Bird thing to me. In other words, a total flop. What happened to the time period (i.e. every day in the history of earth prior to 2012) where we just agreed with each other that sports and Broadway don’t mix.
Serge tries to play ‘mind games’
If Serge Ibaka played mind games with LeBron James’ OFFENSIVE game (at its peak right now if you haven’t noticed), then I would think he might be on to something.
Ibaka took a jab at LeBron yesterday via HoopsWorld, as he and his teammates readied for a crucial Game 4, down a game in the series:
“LeBron is not a good defender. He can play defense for 2-3 minutes but not 48 minutes. LeBron can’t play (Durant) one-on-one.”
Since defense is more or less an effort thing for a world class athlete like LeBron, the tactic will likely backfire. If Ibaka is hell-bent on playing mind games, there are certainly better ways to get it done.
Goldust, cue the music:
162 games will do this to you
The Major League Baseball season is surely a grind on players. But it’s got to be just as brutal on local announcers.
Talking for three-to-four hours about an often-times painfully slow sport has got to wear on you, especially when you have an off-day once every two weeks at the most.
Well, it looks as though the grind has finally gotten to our friend Dave Barnett, the Rangers play-by-play guy. Get well soon Dave!
