HoopsHype Brian Cook rumors


August 7, 2011 Updates

No, this is not the Brian Cook of MGoBlog fame, the well known Michigan Wolverines fan site. “Cookie,” a NBA veteran of the Lakers, Magic and Rockets, has one year left on his deal with the Clips. “I got a decision to make, I may stay here or I may go overseas. I’m kind of torn between the two,” Cook told the media after the Illinois basketball alumni game last night. “I’m looking into China right now, we’ll have to wait and see,” he said. The Sports Bank

Why China? “I like their fan support, the basketball league in China has millions and millions of people who love to watch basketball. It’s another chance for me to be able to take care of my family, to be honest with you. My three sons, I got little kids, my wife- that’s what I’m all about,” he answered. The Sports Bank

For a game that wasn’t all that close, there was some chippy play in the Clippers and Blazers Sunday tilt. Chippy enough for the league to take notice and hand out its form of justice — Los Angeles’ Brian Cook has been suspended two games for a harsh flagrant two on Joel Pryzbilla. Portland’s Andre Miller has been suspended one game for “making excessive and unnecessary contact with Blake Griffin of the Clippers.” Cook’s incident came right at the end of the third quarter, Miller’s midway through the fourth.
