Random Shizzle: Dirty edition

Some shizzle to pass away the evening…

  • Lots of talk today on the internets about Bruce Bowen's cheap shot on Chris Paul last night. Here's Henry Abbott's take on the whole thing…

    Here's what I saw: One of the gems of the NBA, young Chris Paul — tiniest of MVP candidates — heads to the floor to gather up a loose ball. In the ensuing struggle, all kinds of thing happen. But if I'm not mistaken, the most noteworthy of them was not one but two kicks from the foot of Bowen to the upper torso (getting awfully close to the head) of Paul.

    The good news though is that the NBA is reviewing the play. Most folks seem to think that Bowen was trying to hurt Paul, so hopefully the League office will see it the same way and hand down a suspension.

    And just in case you haven't seen it, here's the YouTubeness…

  • Adam Haluska is back on the radar, having latched on with the D-League's Iowa Energy. He played his first game on Tuesday and racked up 19 points and 7 rebounds.

    Meanwhile, Marcus Vinicius is nowhere to be found.

  • Back to TrueHoop: Mr. Abbott tackles Mark Cuban's ban on bloggers in the Mavs locker room. A fine read.

    The NBA really does need to figure out a policy on credentialing bloggers. Really, all they need do is instruct each team to have a PR person spend 30 minutes a day scanning team blogs for inappropriate or unprofessional content. That way they can figure out which ones actually help promote the team through healthy discussion, and which ones just plain suck. Simple as.

  • Tim Floyd back in Louisiana? Or maybe not. Regardless, it's a good excuse to run this picture again…

  • Happy birthday to our old friend Bobby Jackson, who turns 35 today. Bobby was the oldest Hornet until he got traded last month. Can anyone guess who the oldest player on the team is now? Answers on a postcard or in the comments.

And I'm done. Some good stuff due ahead of the Lakers game tomorrow. Stay tuned.
