Daly: No calls, retreads
Question of the Day
After reviewing the tape, the NBA ruled that the Lakers’ Derek Fisher should have been called for a foul against the Spurs’ Brent Barry at the end of Game 4 of the Western Conference finals.
In other news, the league announced that Michael Jordan did indeed push off on Utah’s Bryon Russell before hitting the series-clinching shot in the ‘98 NBA Finals.
Wouldn’t it be cool if they just resumed the game at that point?
I mean, picture this: Jazz ball, up by one, five seconds left. The inbounds pass goes to 46-year-old John Stockton, hounded by 44-year-old Ron Harper …
They’re always talking about the quarterback shortage in the NFL, but how about the coach shortage in the NBA? Thrice-fired Doug Collins is reportedly set to take the Bulls’ job - not long after Larry Brown, three years shy of 70, signed on with the Bobcats.
The only reason Red Auerbach’s phone isn’t ringing right now is that it’s hard to get good cell reception six feet under.
For the sixth time in his illustrious career, Tommy Lasorda sang “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” last week during the seventh inning stretch at Wrigley Field.
Hey, give the guy credit. From what I hear, that was his Actual Voice. There was no lip-syncing.
Somebody told me the other day that Lasorda blogs. And I’m thinking: Curt Schilling has a blog he calls “38 Pitches”; what does Tommy call his blog, “38 Stitches”?
Naturally, I had to find it. (The address: tommy.mlblogs.com) One of his more recent posts, on the retirement of Mike Piazza, reminisces about Piazza making the switch from first base to catcher after the Dodgers signed him in 1988.
