Former Indiana Pacer NBA star Reggie Miller was given a warning.....not in person, but by an anonymous person who hired a plane flying a banner over the So.Cal beaches- "Reggie Miller Stay Away from Married Women!"
It seems as though Miller had the hots for neighbor Ali Kay - who is engaged to designer Diane von Furstenburg's son Alex, and someone wasn't happy about his intentions. Or it may have been from another disgruntled husband?
Now this is news. Shaquille O'Neal of the Cleveland Cavaliers was in D.C. for WWE's RAW program, and wanted to stop by the White House, but they wouldn't let him in. It's not like he is a terrorist. If the Jonas boys can get in, why not Shaq?
It's the end of the third quarter and the Lakers are up by 15....what I am wondering...If the Lakers win in Orlando, will they drop confetti from the ceiling (NO)....and my friend Z is wondering how many cars will catch on fire tonite. I was just in Wal-Mart, and they have championship series shirts...but they haven't recieved delivery of NBA champions shirts yet. Will QVC or HSN have the championship shirts? (QVC)....of course this is all conditional if the Lakers win.
Payback is a bitch, especially if payback is from alleged organized crime. Take the case of former NBA ref Tim Donaghy, who admitted fixing some calls in NBA games. Sentenced to prison in November 2007, Donaghy was beaten severely, requiring surgery...and it is said, that attacker told Donaghy that he, the attacker had ties to the mob. Donaghy is being released 4 months early to a halfway house due to the attack. I would say that Donaghy was lucky so far...since some of those games that were fixed cost gamblers millions of dollars. Not to mention the integrity of the NBA. Is there a Law & Order episode in the future...??
Update 5/21 - Raw is moving to Staples Center for its Memorial Day broadcast- ESPN
Vince McMahon, Chairman of the WWE says he has a contract, and wants Kroenke sports, the company that owns the Denver Nuggets and The Pepsi Center to know that he ain't moving.

For failing to keep up the tradition of first-year pastries, Sacramento King's Donté Green found his car filled with popcorn. In an interview, Green said he will get revenge.... and he did.....he tossed dog food, soy sauce and condiments on the outside of the Mercedes owned by teammate Bobby Jackson. It appears Jackson went ballistic about the revenge as the car reeked to high heaven. Revenge is sweet, but revenge of the revenge may be sweeter, but revenge of the revenge of the revenge might get nasty!
Sactown Royalty notes this in their report:
Memorial services for Donté will be held Saturday. In lieu of flowers,
please donate paper towels to the Donté Greene Memorial Stupid Rookie
Mistakes Foundation, c/o Bobby Jackson, 1 Arco Arena Drive, Sacramento
Kristen Johnson has performed the Water Torture Cell trick over 599 times. but this time in front of 17,000 people during a halftime show for the Oklahoma City Thunder- something went terribly wrong...Kristen blacks out with a Hypoxic Seizure. She had to be pulled from the tank- where she started breathing on her own again..
Another story of fame and ego that got carried away. Dallas Maverick Josh Howard was playing at an Allen Iverson charity flag football game, when the National Anthem was being played- during the anthem Howard goes up to a cell phone camera and says "'The Star Spangled Banner' is going on right now. I don't even celebrate that (expletive). I'm black." This is not the first unorthodox incident from the NBA player. Hopefully- the public, the NBA, and fans will let Howard know their feelings! The video shows Howard's Comments, and Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban's Response
