Mark Cuban Proves Me Wrong Once Again: He CAN Be a Bigger Jerkà

Posted: 9th July 2010 by Denton Ramsey in NBA
The complete BS open letter to LeBron James from Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert is one thing (albeit very sad). Gilbert was reacting on emotion, and he never should have published an open-letter to fans in that state of mind (regardless of him waking up today still pissed off). But Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is just a freaking jerk, plain and simple. How can anyone in their right mind back a d-bag ...
When talking about under-the-radar players in Major League Baseball this season, Houston’s Jeff Keppinger should be a reoccurring name—regardless of the Astros awful overall record. Houston doesn’t need a newspaper column with a photo of a graveside and RIP to know their season is practically over. Fans, writers, and announcers for the Astros have already swallowed that reality pill and realize Houston is in the process of rebuilding. And that’s putting it nicely. But ...

Fans, coaches, and management alike have now had over 48 hours to evaluate their first-round picks on NBA Draft Night 2010. And now it’s time for me to do the same: grade each team’s top selections. We’ll start with the Washington Wizards, and we’ll end with the Wiz as well. Let’s begin...Begin Slideshow
General Manager Darryl Morey has done it once again. The Houston Rockets used the 14th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft to select Kentucky junior forward Patrick Patterson, a perfect selection in my opinion. Patterson is one of six Kentucky players chosen (one of five in the first round) in the 2010 NBA Draft. But of all six former Wildcats, Patterson is the eldest of the draftees, a junior amongst a handful ...
The 2010 NBA Draft is right around the corner, along with the wall-to-wall coverage Bleacher Report will bring fans on the evening of June 24. Yes, wall pun intended.

But who’s going ...
