We can’t remember who tipped us off to these photos of NBA’ers enjoying themselves, so here’s a generic thank you to the basketball blogging community. Here’s the “Glove” Gary Payton:

Do you think the makes women he meets at mixers call him the Glove?

LZ Granderson can’t be real. How many more columns can he write shit like “some might want to turn a blind eye to the gayness of nascar but there’s something under the hood nonetheless” Or from his latest column on Seattle’s homophobic new ownership group and whether Seattle should fund the new arena with tax dollars — “It’s a tough choice, but life is full of tough choices. Stern made his. Now Seattle, the ball’s in your court.”

LZ doesn’t need to be radical just because he is the only out gay sportswriter at ESPN but can he at least not be ten times more milquetoast then Steven Wojowhatever.

Our theory is that there is no such thing as LZ Granderson. LZ Granderson = JT Leroy. LZ is really Steven A. Smith playing a trick on us all.

Ron Artest was arrested for hitting some woman No surprises there. She probably accidently fed the dogs.

The incident got us thinking how hard it must be for a woman to break up with an athlete like Artest and not fear for your life. What exactly are the right words?:

“Ron-Ron, we should see other people.”

“S-Jax, I still want to have sex but I also want to be with other Golden State Warriors.”

Or “Pac-Man, I like you a lot (and think it’s really cool how you make it rain and then sweep up the rain really fast) but I’m just not attracted to you.”
