Sure, but other than that.
Dying to be loved. Born to be hated. And now Rashad McCants has been traded. ... McCants overcame microfracture knee surgery his rookie year to become the Wolves' second-leading scorer last season, but his streaky and unabashed shooting, his reluctance to pass the ball, his propensity to commit turnovers and maybe his moodiness left him on the team's bench since early January.
Gatorade had a commercial a couple years ago that utilized special effects to show James effortlessly sinking full-court shots, but the above footage of him repeatedly sprinting to a spot on the floor in order to launch off-balance 25-foot jumpers over out-stretched defenders would be infinitely less plausible if it didn't actually happen earlier this week in Milwaukee. I'd call it the heat check to end all heat checks, but it's more like compelling evidence of alien life form on earth. Watch it, you won't be disappointed.
He launched the podcast Monday and so far it's just Carolla sitting in his living room with a microphone and a guest, yet there are already hundreds of thousands of subscribers and I'm already back to being giddy about listening to him each day instead of relying upon decade-old Loveline recordings. His first week had Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Simmons, Dr. Drew Pinsky, and Dave Dameshek as guests and other "dear, dear friends" like David Alan Grier, Norm MacDonald, and Dana Gould are on tap. Good times!
Oh, and Carolla also has a new sitcom in the works for CBS.
