Kevin Durant's Summer League debut: The good? 16 points. The bad? On 5-of-17 FG shooting. And that's against SUMMER LEAGUE DEFENSE.
Greg Oden also made his debut, even less auspicious: 6 points (on only 4 shots) and only 2 rebounds in 20 minutes, with – if I read the NBA box score right – 10 personal fouls. That makes him four points shy of a double-double. (Meanwhile, LaMarcus Aldridge? 26 and 11. Damn.)
Meanwhile, Yi had 23 points (7/15 FG) in an 86-77 loss to the Grizzlies. (Mike Conley: 12 pts on 4/6 FG.)
Why doesn't the NBA sell Summerleague jerseys? You'd think that would be a terrific ancillary revenue stream of merchandise.
Vick Watch: The Feds say Vick's property was the site of housing and training pit-fighting dogs, at the very least. Things don't look good.
MLB Stud: Justin Morneau, who hit 3 HR in a Twins thrashing of the White Sox last night. Wasn't it just a week or so ago when we were wondering about the state of Morneau's health? Not anymore.
MLB Dud: Neifi Perez becomes the first MLB player hit with the suspension related to the ban on stimulants. Now, where is my 5th cup of coffee this morning...
Griffey hits HR No. 586, which ties him with Frank Robinson for 6th on the all-time list. Damn he's in rare air.
Nice to see Tiger show up at his own tournament.
Ooh: Have you heard? It's 07/07/07! Most Overrated. Numerological Gimmick. Ever.
