On Wednesday, Fox Sports 1 host Skip Bayless repeated a false claim tweeted by a parody account stating that NBA star James Harden stormed out of several Houston Rockets practices in tears after his teammate Chris Paul mocked his “manboobs.” With Harden and Paul’s “unsalvageable” relationship being the focus of sports media this week, a parody Twitter account posing as ESPN’s top NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski wrote that sources say Paul had insulted Harden’s figure.
With the New Orleans Pelicans poised to use the NBA’s No. 1 draft pick to select Duke phenom Zion Williamson, one Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen location in New Orleans will wheel out a gigantic chicken tray dubbed the “wingspan box.”
If you’re still trying to figure out what Kyrie Irving’s thinking on a given day, you aren’t alone. While we wait on his official free agent decision, and it seems like a formality that he will leave the Celtics for the Nets, more details are sure to emerge to try and explain his thought process. One potential detail came from a story Doug Gottlieb told on The Best of the Herd Podcast, which included a strange interaction between him and Brad Stevens before a film session. Kyrie came in one day to [a film session], he was the first one in film room. He walked up to Brad Stevens and said, ‘What does government mean to you?’
Way back in 2016, onetime Warriors forward and sports radio host Tom Tolbert had a humble request he shared on air. “Is there any way at the new Warriors arena you can dedicate a urinal to me?” he offhandedly joked. “Just one golden urinal. The Tom Tolbert urinal.” Now, it would appear that Warriors president and COO Rick Welts has made good on the request, and the dream has come true for Tolbert, who played three seasons with the Warriors during his own NBA career from 1989 to 1992, and who now co-hosts a show on KNBR.
The urinal is in the media bathroom at the Chase Center. It isn’t golden — that aspect will have to come from the, er, showers — but there is a plaque dedicating it to Tolbert. “Chase Center, the Tom Tolbert Urinal. Chase Center First Flush, June 17, 2019,” it reads.
