Doug Collins to resign
I feel for Doug. He's a good coach who gets stuck with some bad situations. He's done a decent job in Philly, and the team that he's won with for the past few years was broken up to bring in a immature spoiled Andrew Bynum. I wish Doug luck, but I'm sure will see him broadcasting games again. I love to hear him broadcast.
Lebron comments on Kobe's injury
James said he's among those who think players should simply never think about getting hurt.
"You can't say, 'OK, I'm not playing this game because I'm afraid of injury' or 'I'm not playing this summer,'" James said Sunday after the Miami Heat beat the Chicago Bulls 105-93. "The opportunity is there. There's going to be a time when you can't play the game at all because Father Time has caught up with you. So you've got to try to do as much as you can while you can."
Bryant played 3,018 minutes this season, his most since 2007-08. Entering Sunday, only Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, Portland's Damian Lillard and Milwaukee's Monta Ellis logged more court time this season than Bryant, who has played 17 seasons -- two more than Durant, Lillard and Ellis combined.
But James hardly ever wants to miss games, either, even at this point in the season with the Heat already wrapping up home-court advantage throughout the playoffs.
"That's not who we are," James said. "We can't play the game worried about injuries. ... If you play your professional life worried about injuries, you're never going to be able to maximize your potential. You can't do that. You've got to just go out and play."
Heat coach Erik Spoelstra also weighed in on the Bryant injury Sunday, saying that seeing it made him sick to his stomach.
James said he was sad for Bryant, and reiterated what he wrote in a tweet after the Lakers' guard got hurt Friday night: he has no doubt the NBA's No. 4 all-time scorer will one day return.
"I know how much work he puts into the game," James said.
James could give a crap. He's got nothing real to say about Kobe.
