Your Late Night Fix 2.6.07 [J. Mark English]

  • Tyrus Thomas of the Bulls, fined $10,000 by the NBA for saying that he's only in the dunk contest for the money. Guess he'll think again before saying something dumb like that...
  • Boston Celtics not only are losing games, but they are losing Pierce for a longer period of time...
  • Steve Nash misses game due to inflammation of the right shoulder.
  • Injuries seem to be contagious tonight around the NBA, as Iverson misses fourth straight game.
  • Jackie MacMullan on the new and improved Kobe Bryant.
  • Derek Jeter has reason to believe that Roger Clemens will come back to pitch again this year... (How many years left will we have to put up with this waiting game with Clemens?)
  • Meanwhile, Jeter's teamate, A-Rod, ducks questions about whether he'll opt out of his contract next year.
  • Mets pitching coach Rick Peterson gets a three year contract extension. And we can thank him for the Zambrano/Kazmier trade...
  • Controversial Super Bowl TV Ad gets pulled.
  • Scott Wraight rolls out his NHL power rankings.
  • Finally, 1957 World Series MVP, Lew Burdette, dead at 80.
