Bryan the Intern’s Picks to Click

-Seth Davis has written an article about Michael Gilchrist, considered the best player in his class, and undoubtedly a UK target.  But, the focus of Gilchrist’s article is about how the young man is different from many of the top players of the past, as he lacks a swagger and doesn’t enjoy the attention.  It certainly raises a red flag in my head about how Gilchrist would handle the fish bowl atmosphere that is UK basketball

-Boy, Lebron’s image has really taken a hit because of this whole “Crawford dunked on me so I started crying” thing.  Lucky for us, The Angry T blog has compiled a bunch of videos Lebron couldn’t hide of him getting dunked on (twice by Courtney Lee) and also having his shot swatted.

-God played a nasty trick on us last week, when he allowed my girlfriend and Beisner’s ex-girlfriend, Erin Andrews, to get knocked in the face by a foul ball (tried to avoid innuendo’s there).  Andrews was forced to leave the game, but ESPN officials say she will be fine.  Whew.

-Last week, I posted how ridiculous the money that NBA players make.  BUT, I have to admit that they bring in alot of money as well.  I still can’t believe how much money Zydrunas Igugu had made over his career, but when you are 7-feet plus, you make alot of money.  But, if there is a more cushy sports profession than golfer, let me know.  Currently, there are 49 players who have made over 1-million dollars so far this season.  On that list of players are such mega-stars as Kevin Na, Steve Marino, Y.E. Yang, John Merrick, and Briny Baird.  Not to mention everyone’s favorite golfer, J.B. Holmes, who has only made the cut in 7 of the 16 events he has entered, and only made the Top 10 in 2 of those 7 events.  They don’t carry their own bags, have NO physical contact, play on the nicest courses in the world, have other people find their balls, and make absurd money.  It’s a pretty nice life on the Tour.
