I just saw SI's Jimmy Traina post this on Twitter: "Via TMZ, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker are divorcing. Parker filed yesterday." I would provide details, but the less I visit TMZ, the happier I am with myself as a human being, so tough luck. Therefore, I can only speculate that he felt he needed to step up his game to match fellow point guard Steve Nash who is also getting divorced.
Update! Holy hell, I just saw this on Deadspin and had to share...
Worst of the Night in Pictures:
Nationally Televised Games:
Frail Blazers at Grizzlies, NBA TV, 8pm: The more I read about Brandon Roy's arthritic knees, the more depressing it becomes. What did Portland ever do to deserve such horrible luck with injuries? And who's got all the voodoo dolls of Blazers players?
All The Other Games:
76ers at Cavaliers, 7pm: According to the STAT LLC game preview, "[Evan Turner]'s getting much less playing time than [John] Wall because 76ers coach Doug Collins doesn't want to tire him out." I think we found the perfect head coach for LeBron!
Hawks at Pacers, 7pm: Here are some interesting numbers... When the Hawks get a 15 point lead this year, they fall apart like Michael J. Fox's Jenga tower, shooting an abysmal 35.0%, and they let their opponents make nearly 49% of their shots during that stretch.
Lakers at Bucks, 8pm: Tweet response of the day, courtesy of Ball Don't Lie's Kelly Dwyer: "37 percent of the time. RT @offseasonblog: Video: Brandon Jennings has a beautiful jumper. http://bit.ly/bmOLC0"
Bulls at Rockets, 8:30pm: Well, crap. It's that time again -- circus trip! Seven consecutive road games are lined up for the Bulls while the circus takes over the United Center. The circus trip is a sad time for Bulls fans, considering they have gone 10-61 in those games since Jordan's last season with the team. So, like our own Bawful, I will not get too optimistic about this game.
Bricks at Nuggets, 9pm: It's a good thing this game is in Denver and not NYC. Crazed New York fans might try to kidnap Carmelo since the Nuggets won't trade him to the Bricks.
