Team China Representing

Well, at least none of the players went into the stands, that would’ve been much more tragic. This was supposed to be a friendly exhibition game between China and Brazil yesterday, but there were no friends to be made on this night. It was slightly disturbing to see the fight fire back up by a cheap shot, but then again, that made the clip just that much better! I guess I’d be pretty pissed too if the refs blew a call in a meaningless game. I’m wondering if this is why Allen Iverson seems to be leaning towards playing in Turkey instead of China. Maybe he has gone soft from his gangster ways…

In Case You Missed It….

Finally, a 30 for 30 on ESPN got my attention. It’s been a pretty successful series so far and has won over plenty of sports fans, but “Once Brothers” really became the defining episode of the series for me. It’s not saying much, because I still associate sports documentaries with Kobe Bryant Doin Work. I’ll spare you the movie review and simply say that I was old enough to remember Vlade Divac and Drazen Petrovic on the floor, but too young to understand what was really going on between them and back home. I was a huge Nets fan in the early 90s, because of Kenny Anderson. So naturally, I became a fan of Drazen, since he was the real star of the team. (Sorry Derrick Coleman)

Here’s the trailer, but find a way to check out the whole thing.
