Howard....High On and Off The Court

Josh Howard's pregame meal?

The biggest story to come out of the NBA this weekend is Josh Howard admitting he likes to "smoke" a little. Interviewed on a local Dallas radio station Howard freely admitted to smoking marijuana.

You have to love his honesty, but the timing and the choice of topic could have been handled better by the one time All-Star.

Ah, to live and learn..but his Dallas Mavericks did get their first win against the New Orleans Hornets to get back into the series. Hornets lead 2-1.

The Los Angles Lakers are toying with Enver Nuggets (no D in Denver..and assistant coach Mike Dunlap is frothing at the mouth) right now. 3-0. I can see the Nuggets making some big trades over the summer, maybe Carmelo!

Utah Jazz lead the Houston Rockets 3-1. T-Mac, will you ever get out of the first round? I hope so.

The champion San Antonio Spurs put on an absolute clinic in Phoenix yesterday. A sweep is not out of the question here. Suns look very stagnate on the offensive end. Who would have thought that? Spurs up 3-0.

Now to the East. The Boston Celtics let the Atlanta Hawks claim a game today. This will only re-focus the Celts. 2-1 to the Men in Green.

The Cleveland Caverliers are up 2-1 on the Washington Wizards. Whoever can win a road game will win this series.

Orlando Magic's frontline has been great. Chris Bosh cannot match the output of three. Look for the Magic to wrap this one up. Currently, 3-1 to the Magicmen.

The most surprising series to date is this one. Detroit Pistons vs the Philadelphia 76ers. The 6ers are currently leading 2-1 to my disbelief. I know I have one reader that did warn me to not underestimate this young Philly squad. I may have to re-evaluate but the Pistons will find a way.

As for the college seen, there has been a plethora of underclassmen heading to the NBA Draft. Sure, some are only going to "test the waters". Here is the complete list of players who have declared for now.

Sticking with the college scene, long time Duke assistant coach Johnny Dawkins fills the vacant Stanford job. Here is a list of coaches changing address in time for next season.

Changing gears to the NBL, here is a good read on James Harvey. He talks about all his ups and downs in the sport.

Former New Zealand Breakers head coach Frank Arsego is joining Gordie McLeod in Singapore.
Wollongong Hawks Cameron Tragardh is said to be a "school yard bully". I was a teammate of CT's for two years, HE PUNKED NOBODY, but the meat pies took a hiding.

Scott Ninnis is set to sign another Adelaide junior.

Last but not least, the Singapore Slingers reveal that Sam Harris is their Australian big man signing. Do not be alarmed if you have not heard of this guy, you are not alone. I'm actually looking forward to a Sam Harris (221cm) vs Greg Vanderjagt (213cm) matchup. It will look like this I imagine.
