He's My Daddy

Yannick Noah, the flamboyant tennis star famous for his flying dreadlocks and his deadly forehand, is the only French sportsman to have successfully reinvented himself as a pop star. While many were expecting Noah to fall flat on his face when he launched a music career in the early 90s, the singer has found his own original niche on the French scene, fusing his double passion for music and sports and his love for two homelands, France and Cameroon.
Daddy to Joaquim Noah the 6-10 C/F of Florida , one of the teams in the Final Four.


Terrorto Raptors

The last 15 or so playing days of the regular season saw some players' confontations as the race for the playoff spots intensifies. Spurs' Bruce Bowen was fined for kicking Seattle's Ray Allen . In the Miami-Indiana game , a fight almost broke out between Pacer Jermaine O'Neal and Heat Udonis Haslem after a rebound battle .
Which bring us to the toughness issue of the present Raptor roster. It is comprised mostly of nice guys. Remember what thet say about nice guys.
Yup . they finish last or not at all. Sometimes , Mike James acts as the team' s enforcer by default . Swirsky refers to him as a pit bull partly due to James fondness to this breed of dog. Pitted against the other team's bullies , MJ is more like Tinkerbell , the chiwawa of Paris Hilton.
This summer , Bryan Colangelo will have the opportunity to scan the free agents and one free near convict for additional muscle and meaness to the team.
Here are what I think are some prospective thugs for hire .

  1. Danny Fortson. He is your typical schoolyard bully who refused to grow up. If Michael Jordan is referred to as God disguised as a basketball player by Larry Bird , Fortson is a basketball player disguised as a thug. His braided hair and untucked uniform serve as reminders to all . Bryan's father once worked to ban him in the league after he sent a Phoenix player sprawling on the floor . Chris Bosh 's head has a rough introduction to Fortson's elbow in Chris' rookie year. Sure the NBA docked 2 day's pay from Fortson , but it sure decked Bosh alright. He wants out of Seattle . Salary : $ 6 / year.
  2. Latrell Sprewell . The man with a perpetual scowl on his face . Add the semi Fu Manchu moustache = meaness . If looks could kill , Sprewell will be Jeffrey Dahmer . Ask coach Carlisimo , then duck. Salary : negotiable.
  3. Jayson Williams . Reportably ready to make a comeback. Jayson made shooting anything that resembles a turkey fashionable before the Vice President. J.Williams ' reputation is therefore secured. Salary : negotiable.



The Simpsons

One of my fav , The Simpsons , will go on for another 2 years following the signing of a new contract extending the series to 2008 .
The Raptors today signed 6-10 James Lang to a 10 day contract as a replacement for Chris Bosh who was expected to be sidelined indefinitely due to sprained left thumb .
Homer , there is no such thing as sprain brain , duh
.

No to all 3 . All of them are losers. Hoffa can be the enforcer.MJ can be that . Size is immaterial. It is the heart. Remember Calvin Murphy .

I like sprewell out of the three up there. But as long as Mike James comes back to Toronto, I'm happy.
