This week's loser is Celtics forward/center/pussy, Kelly Olynyk
I want him gone. Today if possible.
I have never been shy about letting people know that I am not a fan of Kelly Olynyk. So as the Celtics return home to TD Garden for a must-win Game 3 in their playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks, Olynyk can’t go. His shoulder is sore. You’re kidding, right?
This week's loser is NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver
How much money is enough?
I’d like to start by saying that I think Adam Silver is doing a commendable job as NBA Commissioner. Call me naïve, but I feel that since David Stern stepped down there isn’t a huge whiff of impropriety every time I watch an NBA game. Yes, I believe that he fixed games. I could name hundreds of blatant examples. But I won’t go there. Last year the NBA Finals featured teams from Oakland and Cleveland. What more needs to be said?
Scottie Pippen is a lot of things. Overrated certainly comes to mind (he was very good, not great), a horrible human being certainly fits (he doesn’t tip at restaurants and goes up to homeless people on the streets and makes fun of them- a real class act). But of all the adjectives you could dispose on this scumbag, salty might be the most fitting.
This week's loser is Rockets center, Dwight Howard
If Dwight Howard played for my favorite basketball team, I don’t know what I would do. I’m serious. I would consider boycotting my team altogether until he was in a different uniform. Howard was linked to the Celtics at the trade deadline, and I’m pretty sure I said a few Our Fathers and kicked in several Hail Marys in hopes that it would keep this waste of talent away. I lucked out, but that still doesn’t mean that Howard isn’t out there, Shaqtin’ a Fool.
This week's loser is Michigan State head coach, Tom Izzo
Man, I really didn’t want to do this. I’m a Tom Izzo guy; he’s one of the greatest college basketball coaches of all time and it feels like he leads MSU to the Final Four every year. But I can’t let this one slide.
This week's loser is Knicks forward, Carmelo Anthony
Do you think Melo would like a do-over? Who in their right mind signs a long-term deal with the New York Knicks? The Knickerbockers are in the midst of another miserable season, but they have $18 million in cap space this summer…and Anthony believes that it’s his job to get stars to join him in the Big Apple.
This week's loser is Boston Bruins GM, Don Sweeney
He had one job this week, and only one job: trade Loui Eriksson.
Again, this isn’t an indictment on Eriksson or what he brings to the table. He’s a good player. But at almost 31 years of age and a few concussions under his belt, the sage decision would have been to move him before you either A- lose him in free agency and be left with nothing, or B- panic and overpay him in free agency; neither being an ideal situation.
This week's loser is Red Sox third baseman, Pablo Sandoval
When I heard that Pablo Sandoval showed up out of shape, I said it was par for the course. He’s been battling weight issues his entire career and, after all, the whole point of Spring Training is to get into physical shape AND baseball shape. Is he overweight? Sure. But he’ll have the better portion of five weeks to shave off 10 or 15 pounds by opening day.
