NBA WEEK 2 REVIEW

Lakers embark on a new era of harmony, but will sour notes emerge later?   While no one’s (ESPN) been paying attention, the defending back-to-back champions have opened the season 7-0.

Grizzlies can only hope it isn’t a contractual obligation  

Thomas’ attention grab blindsides Walsh, Knicks  

Delusional Isiah needs help

Isiah needs to either stop using drug or start using them because whichever he’s doing now has him crazier than a non-masturbating Christine O’Donnell after a coven meeting.

NBA quotes of the week

LeBron James has second thoughts about the TV special he used to announce his signing with Miami. 

DUH

LeBron James, conceding a TV special was the wrong place to announce he would sign with Miami, five months later: “If I had to go back on it, I probably would do it a little bit different.” Really? And things went so well. Don’t believe me? Just ask your buddy Maverick.

JUST GOT ADDRESS WRONG

Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert to ESPN Radio, standing by his “cowardly betrayal” letter: “That letter was to the fans and the supporters of the Cavaliers, and it wasn’t to the player that left, it wasn’t to the rest of the world. It wasn’t to anybody but them.”

PRAY FOR THE YOUNG GUYS

Boston’s Kevin Garnett, saying Glen (Big Baby) Davis is now a leader: “He’s stepping into a role where he’s like a young voice for the young players. I think it helps Luke [Harangody] and Avery [Bradley]…” Whoever they are.

NEXT COACH

Detroit’s Tayshaun Prince on Coach John Kuester’s search for a leader: “He has to do some things better too. Obviously, we’re 0-4 so it ain’t just the team.”

EXACTLY

ESPN’s Jeff Van Gundy, on Detroit’s Charlie Villanueva’s tweet, complaining Garnett told him he looks like a cancer patient: “He had a chance to do something about it during the game. Go to it.” Not that I condone what Garnett may or may not have said (personally, I believe Villanueva), but this is exactly why I love, love, love me some Jeff Van Gundy. He might say ANYTHING about anything at any given moment. He, Mike Breen and Mark “You’re Better Than That” Jackson are the best basketball announcing team ever.
