Kevin Garnett and Randy Moss crossed paths as pros in Minnesota, but they first met as preps in Indianapolis. On Garnett’s Area 21 segment for “Inside the NBA,” Moss discussed his West Virginia glory days, which featured Jason “White Chocolate” Williams as his high school point guard.
Martellus Bennett doesn’t know how Tom Brady is feeling. He doesn’t know how Brady’s been. When a reporter asked Bennett about Brady, Bennett responded with the kind of hilarious response he’s been known to produce. “I don’t have a Tom Brady mood ring,” he told reporters on Thursday. Brady sounded a little hoarse on Wednesday but said he’s “good” when asked if he has a cold. Brady was also not listed on the injury report on Wednesday. The reporters were surely asking what Bennett had observed of Brady at practice and in meetings. Bennett clearly was not willing to offer that information.
In one of the most despicable, outrageous displays at a boxing event in years, Angel Garcia went on a vile rant in which a riot was prevented only because Keith Thurman is such a classy, decent human being. Thurman will fight Danny Garcia in a WBA-WBC welterweight title unification bout on March 4 on CBS in what should be one of the best fights of the year. Kudos, though, to Thurman for having the type of self-restraint that enabled him to remain cool despite Angel Garcia calling him all manner of racial epithets.
