D-Wade has been getting alot of bad press recently since being suspended for kicking Memphis Grizzlies player Ramon Sessions in the groin. Well it is time to give him some good press now as well. Wade completely surprised a family in the Miami area that lost everything when their apartment was destroyed by a fire.
Wade and his foundation showed up unannounced to the Lubin family temporary apartment. He bought them all new furniture and appliances to get them back on their feet headed in the right direction. Wade himself was the one carrying furniture into the apartment.
The mother Ms. Lubin was quoted as saying,
““I just went shopping and I lost everything I bought that day,” Lubin said. “I don’t know how to explain it, but I’m thankful.”
So it is a wrap ladies & gentleman. The 2012 NFL regular season is officially over. If you are like me, you are depressed today knowing your team is sitting home and will be watching the playoffs on TV right with me. But if your one of the few lucky ones who’s team made the playoffs well congratulations and whoopty-dam-doo! LOL, sorry had my moment of hating right there.

The Broncos, Patriots will be waiting on the 2 winners of the AFC playoff games, while the Falcons and 49ers await the winners of the 2 NFC games.
Lovie Smith, coach of the Chicago Bears has just been fired. This is the biggest surprise of all the coaches who are being let go today. The Bears are routinely competing for the playoffs, and the players love him. Sometimes in sports things just do not make sense. The Buffalo Bills also just announced they are letting coach Chan Gailey go. That move does not come as a surprise as the Bills once again were a non factor in the AFC. Today has been dubbed “Black Monday” around the NFL , as this is the day each year after a season ends where some coaches are let go and teams go in different directions. I think the Bears are making a bad move .
When you’re in need of a head coach who wouldn’t go after 11 time champion Phil Jackson? Well with the exception of the 2012 Lakers, he’s the dream coach for almost any team and of course at the top of the Brooklyn Nets list.
The Nets have firmly targeted Phil Jackson — the man with the 11 championship rings, the Zen maxims and the geometric offense — to replace the recently fired Avery Johnson.
No deal is imminent, no formal discussions have taken place, and it is not even clear that Jackson wants the job. But the search will start with Jackson and only Jackson, according to multiple people monitoring the process.
Whether or not Phil Jackson wants the job is another story. His agent released a statement saying Jackson was not interested in the job “at this time”, keywords there. It’s still very early and no formal discussions have been held. Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has more than enough money to throw at Jackson. He’s also quoted as saying the ordeal with the Lakers made him think about coaching again. If he’ll coach the Nets is still to be seen. The team needs a lot of work and isn’t near a championship level yet even with the Zen Master’s proposed help. If he’ll be willing to take on the job looks like a long shot to me but hey it’s not impossible.
The Dallas Mavericks failed at landing point guard Deron Williams but according to reports they still have their sights set on center Dwight Howard.
The Mavericks initially wanted to pair up Williams and Howard together but that plan fell through when Deron chose to sign a max level contract with the Brooklyn Nets. Although Howard was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers the Mavericks are hoping he chooses not to sign an extension there and will become a free agent this summer according to Mavericks beat writer Dwain Price.
Thanks to Mark Cuban practically cleaning house much to the dismay of Maverick fans, they will have enough cap room to sign one or even two superstar players. Howard seemed content with the Lakers and many believe he will re-sign with the team but he is known to change his mind and has already shown dismay during their struggles. The Mavericks hope to lure him to Dallas with a max level contract and the long shot of signing another superstar possibly Chris Paul.
DJ Delz, the self pro-claimed “Sneaker Addict” gives his top 25 releases of 2012.
It appears that Nike is aiming to reacquaint us with some unheralded Barkley models as we approach the release of the Foamposite-based Barkley hybrid shoe. One such model is the Air Max 2 Strong, which features the unique heel-strap and the neoprene bootie fit and classic ‘FORCE’ emblem at the tongue. This simpler Black/White colorway definitely serves as a simpler option compared to that ‘Godzilla’ print in the Suns colorway, so if you’re in the lookout for these, check Nike Sportswear Basketball retailers soon because Sneaker Politics has these ready to go at their Lafayette and Baton Rouge locations.
SUMTER, SC (WLTX) — One person has died following a head-on collision near Sumter late Friday night. South Carolina Highway Patrol reports two drivers crashed on US 521 just after midnight Saturday morning.
Although both drivers were wearing seatbelts, one of them died in the crash. The victim’s identity has not yet been released but SCHP says they were driving a 1995 Honda when they crossed over the centerline and crashed head-on into another car – a 2008 Honda being driven by a 30-year-old woman, who was air-lifted to a local hospital.
The accident is still under investigation by the Highway Patrol
COLUMBIA, SC (WLTX) — A Hopkins man was killed during an argument outside a local club after being shot multiple times. The Richland County Sheriff’s Department is currently investigating the shooting after deputies responded to a call around 1:30 AM, Saturday morning.
An argument between two family members turned into a fight inside Tony’s Lounge on Congaree Rd. The uncle and neice were told to leave the club, where the argument between the two resumed outside. The woman’s uncle, 51 year-old Calvert Myers, then physically assaulted her.
When her boyfriend, Cornelius Green stepped in, he and Myers began to fight. Myers then left and came back with a weapon and shot 37 year-old Green multiple times. Despite trying to defend himself with the help of others against Myers, he died from gunshot wounds.
Myers was taken to the hospital and is charged with murder.
