Not A Smart Move By Marcus Smart

Contribution by S Millington

One of college basketball’s top players Marcus Smart shoved a Texas Tech fan, Jeff Orr, in Oklahoma State’s loss to Texas Tech in Lubbock on Saturday. Marcus Smart, earned a technical foul for his shove to Orr. Once the game was over Jay Bilas was expressing his feelings about the Marcus Smart shove on ESPN.

On Sunday, the Big 12 announced Smart will be suspended for three games for violating the sportsmanship and ethical conduct policy. Smart did apology for actions on Sunday by saying, “This is not how I conduct myself. This is not how the program is run. This is not how I was raised. I let my emotions get the best of me.  It’s something I’ll have to learn from, a lesson I’ll have to learn from. The consequences that are coming with it — I’m taking full responsibility. No finger pointing — this is all upon me.”

In a statement by Jeff Orr said “I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere apologies to Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State, Tubby Smith and the Texas Tech Men’s Basketball program.  My actions last night were inappropriate and do not reflect myself or Texas Tech a university I love dearly. I regret calling Mr. Smart a ‘piece of crap’ but I want to make it known that I did not use a racial slur of any kind. Additionally, I would like to offer my apologies to Texas Tech fans that have been embarrassed by the attention this incident has created.” He voluntarily agreed to not attend any Texas Tech home or away games for the remainder of the season. Orr has had some other problems with former Big 12 players. One was John Lucas III, a former Oklahoma St player.

Regardless what Orr said, it was not worth it for Marcus Smart to shove Orr. This will have an impact on this season with him being suspended for three games, but also maybe with his NBA draft stock. Smart is labeled as a top NBA prospect in a deep draft. One NBA GM on Smart said the shove will not affect his draft stock.

Here is a funny tweet about Marcus Smart by Oakland Athletics Jeremy Barfield.

The NBA takes on the WWE

Contribution by: Scott Millington

Indiana Pacers’ Roy Hibbert tweeted WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin after meeting Stone Cold before a basketball game. Stone Cold would then challenge Hibbert to a battle royal with 4 of Stone Cold’s guys and 4 of Hibbert’s guys.

Well I’m sure this battle royal will not happen, but he is my 5 NBA players and 5 WWE wrestlers in that battle royal:

NBA:

Roy Hibbert – Hibbert is a monster that is hard to take down and is not shy to mix it up with people.

Zach Randolph – Randolph is a big guy that is not afraid to knock someone out. Just ask his former Trail Blazers teammate Reuben Patterson and journeyman Lou Amundson.

J.R. Smith – Smith is a guy that likes to fight. His sister also likes to fight. She choked out a fan during a game when Smith was playing in China.

Metta World Peace – He is crazy and doesn’t give a fuck about anyone. Just look at him acting like a crazy fool during the Malice and the Palace.

Ben Wallace – The former Detroit Bad Boy is one guy you don’t to mess with. Just look at the Malice at the Palace.

WWE:

Stone Cold Steve Austin – Stone Cold loves beer. What? I said beer. Stone Cold also loves to kick ass and that is the bottom line cause Stone Cold said so.

Ric Flair – Ric Flair is a limousine ridin’, jet flyin’, kiss stealin’, wheelin’ dealin’ son of a gun. WOOOO!!

CM Punk – CM Punk is the self proclaimed Best wrestle in the world and he is not afraid to tell you that.

The Rock – The Rock will take you down Know Your Role Boulevard which is on the corner of Jabroni Drive and check you directly into the Smackdown Hotel!

Chris Jericho – The man of 1004 hold and was the first Undisputed Champion in WWE history.

..and your winner of the battle royal and new World Champ Ben Wallace.
