Isiah Thomas was one of the best ever at running the show on the court but I think its safe to say he is horrible at running a professional basketball team from up above. Isiah recently lashed out at who I like to think of as the first sports blogger, Bill Simmons, better known as Page2's Sports Guy. The complete transcript of the conversation Thomas had on ESPN radio can be read at the bottom of Simmons' response here. Deadspin polled its readers on who they thought would win in a fight, Simmons or Thomas?
I think it is safe to say you have made it to the big time when one of the best players ever has such a beef with you that they call you out and threaten your well being. So I am proposing an attack on a Philadelphia based athlete in an attempt to get them to want to clock me. I don't know who I should go after, a current athlete or someone who has hung up their uni years ago. Kyle Korver? David Bell? Mitch Williams? I think it is safe to say, I will not make any attempts to piss of Uggie Urbina.
What a week it's been for Chris Christie.
After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."
He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list.
"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said.
(Three fire emojis).
"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.
He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.
It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.
The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."
Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right?
Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:
After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:
[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.
