    I watched the NBA a little bit last night (Rondo vs. LeBron). Looked like a pick-up game at the local YMCA. No hustle, no fire, no passion. What a waste of money these guys are being paid. The NBA should just have a tournament featuring all teams and have it only take up 2 or 3 weeks. The regular season is a total waste of time and money.

    it was truly fun to watch. Not all NCAA games are thrillers either. Get over yourself; your

    I agree about Pitino’s present lack of recruiting prowess but Pitino’s silent power actually got Billy Clyde hired here. Since Clyde looked Ricky in the eye and beat him in Rupp Arena he was hired.
    How much power is that when Cal’s phone never rang while the committee at UK just wanted the guy who beat him, it’s a bit sickening.

    Every time somebody mentions Richard Pitino, I immediately get the image of Chris Farley in Tommy Boy going “oh Richard, I’m so happy hold me!”
