Can you feel the love, tonight?

Why are you not having fun with gotemcoach?
gotemcoach:

Mrs. Lebron Wade?
MrsLeBronWade.com is a new blog where, as the site purports, LeBron James went to Miami to marry Dwyane Wade, and then created a website to tell his love.
I can’t believe I had nothing to do with this…

Jesus, Melo.  Thanks for bringing us all down… 
Plus, you’re the one that just watched somebody die and then tweeted it.

Tomorrow, the 13th, Karl Malone and Scottie Pippen will get most of the headlines.  Michael Jordan, who’s presenting his Chicago Bulls teammate, will probably get rest (dollars to donuts MJ off-handedly, and without realizing, degrades Pippen by referring to him as his “sidekick,” or mentioning Scottie was the “only one who could come close to beating me 1-on-1.”)
But perhaps the soon-to-be Hall of Famer with the biggest impact on the game of basketball is “The Good Doctor,” Lakers owner, Dr. Jerry Buss.  From his shrewd 25 year, $25 million contract for Magic Johnson, to his willingness to pay the luxury tax this off-season for a run at a second Laker 3-Peat, Jerry Buss is a stone-cold winner.

(pictured above (L to R) with Mrs. United States 2005, and aesthetic dentist, Chiann Van Gibson, Motley Crue’s Vince Neil, Dennis Haskins a.ka. Mr. Belding from Saved by the Bell, and some lady named Dovie)
Dr. Buss assembled the pieces for “Showtime,” the greatest offensive show in all of basketball history.  For that alone, he should be inducted twice.  In addition to the aforementioned Magic contract, Buss pulled off another coup by selling The Forum naming rights to Great Western Savings & Loan - a move that would be the precursor to modern stadium/arena deals.  And, he’s not just a fat wallet.  Dr. Buss has a fine basketball mind, and better yet, sticks to his guns.  Buss overruled Le Logo, and drafted Magic Johnson (apparently Jerry was pushing for Sidney Moncrief?), and let Shaquille O’Neal walk from the franchise when Buss knew his price tag was too steep for the return he’d provide.

Oh, and one other thing… 
He’s the most successful owner in the history of sports.  The Lakers have made The Finals 16 times in his 31 year tenure.  Imagine your favorite football team making the Super Bowl every other year.  Now, imagine your favorite football team winning 10 of them.
He’s a river boat gambler.  He looks like Jerry Stiller and Rip Taylor banged faces about a thousand times.  He’s a Laker.
He’s Dr. Jerry Buss - The Greatest of All Time.

The Pacer Renaissance…
'Tis a good day in the Deep Midwest.  The Pacers are on the way back.  Why? 
Because Darren Collison is a legit pass first PG in this league.  Love his game.  Love it.  I can’t believe NO didn’t get more out of this trade.  They were forced to trade low, and only got Posey cap relief from this deal.  One more year and Collison will be better than Ariza*.  It’ll really stink when Paul starts sh*tting the bed to get out of NOLA.
Because Danny Granger is a good scorer, and could be a valuable trade asset come the deadline.  Because Hibbert has legit 7 foot length and serviceable back to the basket offense.  Because the Pacers have garbage men who know how to play their role, defend and rebound in Jeff Foster, Dahntay Jones and James Posey.  Because Luther Head knows how to shoot the ball off the bench, and well, if this George kid pans out…
Why I really think they’re on the come up is the cat pictured above.  Lance Stephenson might have some “issues,” but he can get to the hole, he’s a load doing it, can pull up from anywhere, and is one tough hombre from Coney Island.  He’s also the all-time leading scorer for high school basketball in the state of NY, and there’ve a been a couple of decent players in the NY and the PSAL…
ROY?  I don’t think it’s out of the question, if he plays some defense…  More than likely, in January, you’re going to be hearing stories talking about “Lance Stephenson overcoming personal struggles” on ESPN, and mentioned as the steal of the draft.
Personally guarantee he puts on a show at the Rookie Game at All-Star Weekend.
The guy was Born Ready.

*Trevor Ariza must be on suicide watch.  Agent loses a big hand to the Lakers, screws you from playing with the back-to-back Champions, and playing for the 3Peat.  Now he’s just trying to figure out how in the hell David West is a #2 option in the NBA.
