Russ Grimm picks Joe Bugel for Hall of Fame presentation

Joe Bugel will do the honors when it comes time to present Russ Grimm for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer.

Bugel was the offensive coordinator during Grimm's playing days with the Redskins' Hogs (from 1981-91).

"When Russ said he wanted me to be his presenter," Bugel said in a statement released by the Hall of Fame, "it lifted me so high I almost hit my head on the ceiling."

The enshrinement ceremony will be held Aug. 7 in Canton, Ohio.

The Cushing do-over

The Associated Press has decided that the only way to deal with the kerfuffle over Brian Cushing's Defensive Rookie of the Year Award and four-game suspension for testing positive for a fertility drug on the NFL's banned-substance list is to re-vote. You'll recall that the runners-up (none of them too close to Cushing) were Buffalo's Jairus Byrd, Green Bay's Clay Matthews and the Redskins' Brian Orakpo.

At The League, discuss now whether Cushing should be stripped of the award.

Steinberg on Haynesworth

Dan Steinberg continues his relentless, savage-beast like coverage of the Albert Haynesworth drama with his third post in three days. In today's installment at D.C. Sports Bog, Dexter Manley talked about Haynesworth on the Mike Wise Show.

Westbrook or no Westbrook?

Chris Mottram of Mister Irrelevant says that Brian Westbrook to the Redskins isn't the worst idea ever and lists five reasons why it just might work. At bleedinggreennation.com, folks aren't exactly trembling in fear at the thought of Westbrook playing for a division rival.

If MJ hadn't retired for a short two year period, he would have won 8 Championships in a row.

Houston would have been no match for them.

Lol at the LBJ haters. He's led the Cavs to back to back best record in the NBA seasons, with as greg1 put it: 4 other guys.

But as I've said with Basketball: In the past 30 years only 8 different teams have won the Championship. That trend will continue as the Lakers win the next two. One man on a team makes too much of a difference in that sport.

It's not a criticism; it's an observation.

He never developed a 25 foot jump shot...why? Because he never needed to. Why? Because at 7'1'' in the 1960's he could stand around the rim and tap in missed shots all game long...ergo, his dominance was largely a product of his freakish size.

Which was my original point.

In the great debate I'm more inclined to give the nod to someone like MJ, who did not have the luxury of being a giant, and thus, had to develop a number of skills in order to dominate the game.

Lebron plays with "4 other guys" because he makes those "4 other guys" worse than they actually are in Cleveland's offense.

Antawn Jamison - multiple all-star appearances

Shaquille O'Neal - 2009 all-star

Moe Williams - 2009 all-star

Nobody other than Anderson Varejao benefits from the half-court, iso-Lebron offense where all you're asked to do is spot-up or look for an offensive rebound.

LBJ kills the flow of the game, and when he meets a tactically superior team that can effectively minimize his ability to play 1-on-1 ball (i.e. Boston '10, Orlando '09), his team struggles. And it's not because his other teammates aren't good enough.

Cause Malone had the best PG in the history of the game spoon feeding him points for his whole career, and he never came up big when it counted.

Wilt & Russell definitely dominated their era, but if you could drop Shaq back in time I say he manhandles "The Stilt" & Russell in the paint. Shaq would have averaged more points, rebs and broken rims per game!!

I think Kobe & LeBron should be considered the same "era" as M.J. since the game hasn't evolved since Jordan retired.

Also Jordan was winning championships with roll players (ex. Pippen). Still gotta give GOAT nod to M.J.!!

from the Pomerantz book on Wilt.

He'd run the 440 in 49 seconds, leaped nearly 23 feet in the broad jump and put the shot more than 53 feet. He could clean and jerk 375 lbs and dead lift 625.

(didn't mention he'd high jumped within a few inches of the world record)

Pretty much agree.

I'll add to that by noting that the LeBron-centrism on that team is also hurting them in terms of coaching.

Mike brown is a LeBron towel-boy yes-man who runs one play - isolate LeBron at the top of the key and let him do whatever.

At this stage of season, NBA teams benefit from good coaches who are able to come up with adjustments, schemes and rotations to take advantage of matchups/mismatches and just plain motivate a team.

Hoping LeBron drops 35 every night is a strategy that takes you only so far.

I cant stand Malone, but that is a ridiculous argument. Did you ever think that maybe Stockton had the best PF of all time and that is why he is so successful. Stockton isnt close to being the best PG of his era either. Magic was better, Payton was better, and Isiah was better. Stockton and his stats were a product of playing for almost 20 years.

Cushing keeps AP Rookie of the Year Award
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on May 12, 2010 2:32 PM ET
Well, that was a big waste of time.

Brian Cushing kept the Associated Press Rookie of the Year award after a re-vote that concluded on Wednesday.

The Texans linebacker lost more than half of his votes after testing positive for a banned substance recently, but he still led the way with 18 of 50 votes. Bills safety Jairus Byrd received 13 votes, and Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews III got 10. Washington linebacker Brian Orakpo earned three votes, and St. Louis linebacker James Laurinaitis got one.

We'll have more on this story in a few minutes.

Payton was better than Stockton????? I'd tend not to argue with you any further just based on that statement.

Stockton was better than Isiah.

Magic is debatable, but Stockton being #1 on the all time assist and steals list is pretty huge.

Stockton made some big shots in his career (97 or 98 WCF winner). I can't think of one big game from Malone, other than game 5 of the 98 finals, and all that did was extend the series by a game.

And you actually think that Malone was the best PF of all time??

Duncan, McHale, and KG might have something to say about that. And their 8 combined rings too.

"Just curious why nobody ever talks about Karl Malone?"

Malone really never was that popular with the broad base of fans, despite his quality play.

That'll be a positive outcome if the Knicks find a way to also keep D Lee.

Then's there's the tricky issue of their not having a solid point guard.

If I'm LB James, I watch what happens in Miami before heading to New York.

If Wade stays and Riley comes down to coach, Beasely, Wade, James, Richardson makes for an interesting line up headed by a great coach.

Everybody hates on John Stockton. The 1 guard on a basketball team is supposed to find the open man first, shoot second.

He is the all time leader in assists, and did Karl Malone hand feed him those steals too?

All those steals are a product of playing good man to man defense.

People always label him dirty, this and that.

Is Kareem Abdul- Jabbar overrated because he played for so long?

Agreed about the point guard issue in NY. They'd probably be better served trying to grab a good guard than holding onto D. Lee.

I think Chicago is a better fit than Miami for Lebron. Think Rose and Noah are good, plus they could grab another player to go along with Lebron.

Miami has Wade, but that's about it. The other guys you listed aren't any better than what the Cavs have now.

Payton's Sonics went to as many Finals as the Jazz did. I could understand arguments against Payton or Thomas but if you think Stockton lit a candle to Magic then its clear you dont know what you are talking about. The only person that you could debate with Malone is Duncan.

To clarify, I didn't say Pippen was a role player. I would say he's a 1st ballot HOF'er, but he wins no championships without Jordan!!

Rodman got some big accolades, but he was a role player (a good one though!). His roll was to play defense and rebound. How many points & assists did Rodman average on those teams??? I bet similar to Bill Wennington.
