David Lee was supposed to miss the playoffs with a torn muscle in his hip, but managed to play last night for the Warriors. Kosta Koufos hit his first three pointer as a professional during last night's playoff game. Mark Jackson was fined $25,000 for his "hitmen" comments, as the NBA feels he was trying to influence the refs. Oh, and the Warriors eliminated the Nuggets.

 

The Nets withstood a late run from the Chicago Bulls, and a Nate Robinson night to remember, to force Game 7 in Brooklyn. Yes, out of all the .gif's I could have chosen, this is what I went with. Thanks Gerald.

 

Mike Woodson was upset that the Knicks decided to wear funeral black before Game 5 against Boston.

 

LeBron James gave $1 million to his former high school for renovations to the gym.

Kevin Krigger is determined to win the Kentucky Derby.

 

 

FLASHING LIGHTS

There are massive wildfires in California and reports state they haven't been contained at all.

 

The NRA is drawing huge numbers to their annual meeting in Houston.

 

Mexico is growing weary of American involvement in the drug war and is creating distance between the two countries when it comes to intelligence sharing.

Can you imagine living without the internet for a year? Here's what it's like.

 

 

EVERYTHING I AM

 

The LATimes does some great reporting on the cultural perceptions of Jason Collins.

Sure, some of the players said, Collins is African American, just as they are, but he grew up in an affluent, mostly white culture that is more likely to accept homosexuality.
