Links of the Week

Thanks to Golden State of Mind for this great picture.

-Kobe Byant and a glib Phil Jackson react to Game 1's "Paul Pierce Drama" following the Celtic's win. The Zenmaster on top of his game, once again. [AOL Fanhouse]

-On a side note, Kobe is into Harry Potter. Really! []

-A great breakdown of University of San Diego pitcher Brian Matusz. Drafted fourth overall in yesterday's amateur draft by the Orioles, there are some questions about his fastball velocity and mechanics. [Baseball Intellect]

-Braves pitcher John Smoltz talks about matching up with Tiger on the links, and eventually trying to make it through Qualifying School for a spot on the PGA tour. []

-The Padres are selling the fact that first-round pick Allan Dykstra (1B) could be the Jim Thome type slugger that will conquer the spacious confines of Petco. Not everyone (myself included) is buying. Dykstra is an SD native and Rancho Bernardo High alum, as are fellow major leaguers Cole Hamels (PHI) and Hank Blaylock (TEX). [It Might Be Dangerous...]

-Screenshots of the NCAA Football '09 video game is out, and previews a new look for the Cal Bears. [Bears with Fangs]

Oh well, we're still better than Notre Dame.

-The University of Indiana football field was damaged due to recent heavy rains, and may eventually need to be replaced. Best. Sinkhole. Ever. [Hoosier Scoop]

That's all for now, hope everyone found some of those stories interesting. Inspirational Quote? OK OK, here comes the airplane...

“Hip-hop is a style. Some of my owners are hip-hop, but they dress in a different fashion. Hip-hop doesn't mean sloppy.”

-Street Culture expert and NBA Commissioner David Stern
