Derrick Rose called the Knicks a super team, which is absurd. When people called the absurd comment absurd, Rose doubled down. How else can Rose show his absurd confidence in the Knicks? Rose, via Nick DePaula of Yahoo Sports: I think we have a chance to win every game, and in the league, that’s rare. Let’s give Rose the benefit of the doubt. I think he meant the Knicks are capable of winning each time they take the court, not that they’ll go 82-0. That’s probably true. I can’t, today, call any single game on the Knicks’ schedule a guaranteed loss. Sure, some games are harder than others. The Knicks probably won’t win at Golden State in their sixth city in 10 nights. But they could. The Lakers
Frank Mason should stick to hoops. The senior point guard for the Kansas Jayhawks had a rough debut on the mound over the weekend, as he threw the first pitch of a Royals game to the back stop: That wasn’t even his worst throw of the afternoon.

But whatever, because he still can claim the greatest rap song written about an athlete (click here, but this so NSFW).
Some poor UNC student decided that he was going to try and block Seventh Woods, a freshman point guard for the Tar Heels, on a dunk attempt. What ended up happening was that he got windmilled on. To quote Samuel L. Jackson, as portrayed the great philosopher Dave Chappelle, “You ain’t never seen my movies?” Woods was doing this as a freshman … in HIGH SCHOOL.
