It's NBA Playoff time. To check the pulse of the Southwest Division champs, I spoke with their physically imposing small forward Caron Butler. Kobe, Dirk Nowitzki and Jerry Tarkanian all get named name-dropped in this revealing Q&A...
One of the great things that draws us to athletics, competing or even watching, is the surprise. Nancy Lieberman, 50 years old and a New York City native, has seemingly conquered every barrier ever presented to her.
Depending on which newspaper or blog you read, Carl Landry lost parts or all of up to five teeth when he and Nowitzki collided. But the teeth didn't land on the floor: they embedded themselves in Nowitzki's arm.
This story has fallen through the sports cracks as the NBA Playoffs have unfolded. It deserves to be part of the national dialogue under the category "professional athletes behaving like total cads toward women."
Nowitzki should have at least gotten a decent lawyer to contact the court and set up her arraignment. It happens every day on matters far more serious, so it wasn't necessary to orchestrate her public arrest.
