    I want to go up to Minneapolis this January and catch the Timberwolves play the Pelicans.

    But I said that about getting tickets to see the Saints at the Vikings, but I never got them

    I've never been to an NBA game. (NFL either.)
    I lived in Chicago when Jordan was playing, but tickets were too expensive at the time. I should have gone to one anyway.

    The Lakers are now 31-39 and, with 12 games left to play, are 9½ games out of the last playoff spot in the Western Conference. In other words, LeBron James has been no help at all. Anyone else want him?

    Nowitzki is 40 and averages 20.8 points per game. I doubt he'll rise any higher on the all-time scoring list. Above him are, in descending order, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Karl Malone, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Michael Jordan. Chamberlain and Jordan are tied for most points per game: 30.1.

    I never would have imagined a LeBron team would have that bad of a record.

    The Lakers are now 10½ games out of the last playoff spot. They have just ten more games to play. Yessiree, sports fans, they're out of the playoffs for the sixth consecutive year and LeBron will have plenty of time to go fishing -- or whatever he likes to do. Few people expect Luke Walton to return as coach. Former Bucks coach Jason Kidd and former Warriors coach Mark Jackson are rumored to be under consideration. Associate head coach Brian Shaw could also be promoted to head coach but I don't think that is very likely.

    At least they got further when they had Karl Malone and Gary Payton on the team.

    Magic announced his resignation at a press conference without first telling Jeanie Buss. He knew he would cry if he told her. There's no crying in basketball! No crying! Or is it baseball I'm thinking of?

    I suspect that whenever a team and its coach announce a "mutual decision" to part ways, it is not mutual. It's either a firing or a resignation. First Magic, then Luke -- will LeBron be the next to go?

    Vogel coached the Magic for two seasons. They missed the playoffs both seasons. Before that he coached the Pacers for six seasons. They missed the playoffs one season and in two other seasons they lost in the first round. They never won the Central Division during Vogel's tenure. The Lakers have now missed the playoffs for six consecutive seasons. Vogel will be a perfect fit.
