  1. Wow… you mean to tell me that a John Tomase story might be overblown and exaggerated???? What are the odds?


    1. How on earth does that guy still have a job? I mean, he ruins a Super Bowl weekend for an entire fanbase (and, perhaps, for the team as well) with a false story written solely because he thought it would advance his career, and he basically gets off scot-free with an “oops, my bad” pseudo-apology; then his colleagues at the Herald spent the next two days either defending him (Felger) or bashing the Patriots’ fanbase (Mazz) in print.

      It boggles the mind, really.


  2. Not a bad article by Curran who refreshingly admits he might have made a mistake. It’s almost inevitable Bryant will acquire the nickname “Distraction” before his career is over.


  3. Apparently, Lebron has also earned the right to hack Pierce and Garnett at any time and not fear a foul being called. The WWE, er NBA, is great.


    1. Did you ever see the NFL Network’s series, “The Missing Rings”?

      It’s about teams that came close to winning a Super Bowl (e.g., the 1990 Buffalo Bills–“wide right”), but didn’t win.

      NBA TV should do a series called, “The Missing Rings–the ones that were taken away by David Stern’s officials”; the first installment would be the 2002 Sacramento Kings, then the 2006 Dallas Mavericks, etc.

      WWE officials, in fact, might have more integrity than NBA refs.


      1. The NBA is on “the level” the same way that the WWE and Italian soccer are. Youtube LeBron’s travel against the C’s from Monday and Camby’s foul on Steve nash when he was standing 20 feet away if you don’t believe me…
