Candace Parker LA Sparks
Candace is a bad girl

In the midst of these 2008 NBA Playoffs, a major shift in the professional basketball paradigm happened yesterday. Its equivalent to the type of force that moves mountains. Candace Parker, “CP3” in her own right, signed an undisclosed deal with Gatorade, and Adidas.

Smith on the Dallas Mavericks being intimidated by their opponent the last two playoffs: “Last year, the Dallas Mavericks were intimidated to a degree by the Golden State Warriors. And it wasn’t just the fact that (Golden State) was better than (Dallas), but they felt they could be physical with them and they could intimidate them. So now it’s the first round against New Orleans and they are going to do what Golden State (did).”

Posted in 2008 NFL Draft, Ali Highsmith, blog roll, Blogroll, Green Bay Packers, Jerrod Mayo, LSU, Mario Manningham, Michigan, New York Giants, NFL Draft, NFL Mock Drafts on April 23rd, 2008 by Ron Glover

Today we wrap up our First Annual NFL Mock Draft and I must say I’ve had a blast.

Anything else I forget?

This was just foul! I’m disgusted!

And then the getaway sentiment was giving a token appearance of caring about how he grew up in poverty?

What was your aim here E:60?

Who is Kelvin Sampson?

This is my farewell to college basketball 2008. I’ll remember the domination of Memphis, the outstanding freshman class (Beasley, Love, Mayo, Gordon), and the unforgettable championship game for years to come but this is what’s really going to stick with me.
