Blogging the Bloggers: Z-Bo’s DUI, the Cheryl Miller/Scot Pollard feud and more

SPORTSBYBROOKS has the details about Zach Randolph’s DUI early Monday morning. Why does a guy making $17 million per season ever have a reason to drink and drive?

THE LOVE OF SPORTS describes in great detail why Tom Izzo’s Michigan State team is so important to the state of Michigan and the city of Detroit.

DEADSPIN wonders if John Calipari’s daughters should get off of Facebook now that they’re members of the Kentucky royal family.

NESW SPORTS has video of maybe the most uncomfortable four and a half minutes in the history of NBA pregame/halftime/postgame shows. Cheryl Miller was not happy with Scot Pollard’s tardiness to the set and she let him know about it.

Six Pack of Observations: NBA All-Star Saturday

Last night, the NBA held its Shooting Stars (zzzzz), Skills Challenge (zzzz), Three-Point Shootout and Slam Dunk Contest. Here are a six random observations about the night’s events, which include some breaking news for those that missed the event.

1. It would be nice if the contestants in the Skills Challenge would actually try to win.
Devin Harris looked like he was in another gear compared to his competitors, but struggled with the passing and shooting and ultimately finished second to Derrick Rose who was just about perfect in those parts of the course. Mo Williams looked like he didn’t even want to be there and Tony Parker couldn’t make a jumper to save his life. Harris was the only one that was actually putting forth any effort during the dribbling portion. Most of these guys are more interested in looking cool than looking like they want to win, and that’s a shame.

2. Did Kenny Smith take annoying pills just before the Three-Point Shootout?
When he wasn’t declaring that the eventual champion (Daequan Cook) didn’t have a chance to win the contest, he was flip-flopping like crazy during each round. At one point, during the middle rack of balls, he said that Rashard Lewis didn’t have a chance to advance, and then when Lewis his four out of five on the final rack to advance, Smith said, “I told you so.” I was rooting for Cook just to see Smith eat crow, and he never did. On a side note, Reggie Miller and his sister have the most non-broadcast type voices. I like what Reggie has to say, so he gets a pass, but I’m not sure what Cheryl brings to the table. (To be fair, that’s probably true of any sideline reporter not named Erin Andrews.)
