Josh Robbins: Tracy McGrady on Doc Rivers telling Tim Duncan during Duncan’s free agency courtship that significant others weren’t allowed on the Magic team plane: “I just found this out over the All-Star break. I had no idea. No idea. Doc Rivers, man? You wait till I see him.”
I watched your interview with Taylor Rooks on SNY where you talked about parenting your daughter, painting your nails. I thought that was super cool. Michael Beasley: [Laughs] Listen, man. I lost my hood card because I’ve got paint on my nails, bro. So that’s good to hear. My four-year-old will be five in April. Not much will change in those years. I think it’s cool. People should be themselves no matter what anyone says and how it feels. Just be comfortable with being yourself.
Jordan Clarkson, who was acquired by the Cavs from the Lakers before February’s trade deadline, appeared on the Road Trippin’: Richard vs. Channing podcast (the same one where Irving originally presented his theory), along with fellow ex-Laker Larry Nance Jr. It was revealed that co-host DJ Montage doesn’t believe in dinosaurs (or Elvis?), and Clarkson volunteered his odd response (around the 40:30 mark of the podcast). Clarkson: I don’t believe in dinosaurs either. Well no, I actually do. I believe that — this is gonna get a little crazy. I’m gonna take y’all a little left on this. OK, so y’all know how we got dogs and stuff, right? So, I think it was bigger people in the world before us, and, like, the dinosaurs was they pets. DJ Montage: On a leash? Like a pet? So how big were these people? Clarkson: Oh, you look at a dinosaur. They got to be three times bigger than them.
