Unfortunately, good people, John Wall tragically lost his right arm in Tuesday’s earthquake. (#Moment of Silence)
Seems like the Jerry Stackhouse owned by @n1coolguy didn’t fare so well either.
But hey, Stackhouse has long been a fixer-upper … See? Good as new.
> Hide that wife of yours, hide those kids of yours … A California Federal judge has rejected Gilbert Arenas’ attempt to keep his ex, Laura Govan, off of the VH1 show, ‘Basketball Wives’, granting Shed Media their anti-SLAPP motion.
Better yet, Arenas’ Twitter account seems to have played a role in the judgement rendered against him. Via the decision of Judge Dolly Gee:
“Arenas suggests that any discussion of his family life is not sufficiently related to his celebrity to render BWLA’s use of his identity a matter of public concern. This contention is belied by the tens of thousands of Twitter users who follow Arenas as he tweets about a variety of mundane occurrences.”
How fiting. How American. How Gilly. (Or in this instance, I imagine, also… ‘How gully’)

> Web startup BuildZoom.com is seriously offering employment to NBA players during the lockout. I wonder if that includes the likes of Delonte West, Kendrick Perkins and Gilbert Arenas.
> Former Washington National Nyjer Morgan is on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week. Ah, seems like only yesterday Tony Plush was irking the Wizards by asking for courtside VIP tickets to a game and then wearing a Golden State Warriors jersey to it.
> Remember when Andray Blatche lent his name to “Lap Dance Tuesdays” at a Miami club and it was totally a big deal? Of course you do. Well, seems like the gentlemanly Antawn Jamison was recently partying at the very same club in Miami. Clearly, Jamison’s top billing isn’t as descriptive, but I imagine the same things went on inside.
Jamison really had a relationship with the camera that night, it seems. It’s like the camera was some long-lost ex-girlfriend who ended things on bad terms but all of a sudden showed up in a distant city where it was advertised that Jamison would be partying. Totally.
