GOOD LEBRON DEBATE .. ANTHONY V. BAYLESS
VECSEY JUMPS ON THE BASH LEBRON BANDWAGON, DOES HE HAVE A POINT?
You may disagree with Peter but it is refreshing to see him simply state his opinion and not make up stories as he did twice in a week, two weeks ago.
After years of being targeted by defensive gameplans you’d think LeBron (i.e. coach Mike Brown) would understand (insist) that by giving up the ball sooner on each possession (and continuing to move), the greater difficulty opponents have surrounding James when he gets it back in better scoring position.
WHY DOES HORSE RACING’S DUTROW GET A FREE PASS?
Big Brown’s trainer is the equivalent of Dave Bliss taking Cincinnati to the Final Four in 2011. How is this guy still working in the racing industry?
Dutrow’s ARCI rap sheet contains 72 entries, including fines and suspensions in Maryland, California, New York, Florida, Delaware and New Jersey.
Several of those are for his own personal conduct; many involve marijuana. Others include: an alleged attempt to pass forged checks in Maryland; an attempt to provide a false urine sample “by means of an apparatus concealed on his person”; and a failure to report on a New York license application a 1991 criminal conviction in Nevada.
And he’s been fined or suspended at least once every year since 2000 for doping issues. In 2000, a barn search in New York produced “an injectible vitamin which is forbidden.” In ’01, a horse had excessive Lasix — an anti-bleeding medication — in its system. In ’02, Dutrow “failed to follow Lasix procedures.” In ’03, a horse tested positive for Mepivacaine. From ’04 through an ’08 fine in Florida, there were citations regarding Lasix, Clenbuterol, Phenylbutazone and Oxyphenbutazone.
COME ON, YOU KNOW IT’S WRONG…TISK, TISK WEBSTER!!

HOOPS RECRUITING UPDATE
UNLV looked to have it’s pick of the litter a few weeks back with Kentucky’s Derrick Jasper and Pepperdine’s Malcolm Thomas looking at Vegas as a transfer destination. Things have gotten really quiet.
Thomas is apparently an academic mess. Reports are that UNLV is clearly behind UCLA and San Diego State in the race.
Jasper is now being courted by Minnesota (former KY coach Tubby Smith) and Cal along with the Rebels. There is also some buzz in Lexington that he may just stay at Kentucky. Stay tuned.
UNLV is also being mentioned in the race for another transfer. Curtis Kelly, a 6-foot-9 sophomore, is leaving UConn.
Jeff Goodman of FoxSports.com is reporting that Kelly is looked at K-State this weekend. He told Goodman that he’s also considering UNLV, Kentucky, Xavier, Rhode Island, Virginia and Miami.
Kelly, ranked ahead of …Wayne Chism (Tenn), Taj Gibson (USC), Ryan Anderson (Cal)…was the 11th-rated PF in 2006 coming out of Rice (Manhattan). He chose UConn over L’Ville, Pitt and Syracuse.
