Report: John Paxson Shoved Del Negro during Confrontation

According to multiple sources, John Paxson twice shoved Vinny Del Negro and had to be restrained after the two were involved in a post-game disagreement last month.

"After a loss to the Phoenix Suns on March 30, an irate Paxson walked into the coach’s office at the United Center and confronted Del Negro over a narrow breach of a management-imposed minutes limit on injured forward Joakim Noah," writes Adrian Wojnarowski. "Sources said Paxson first grabbed a hold of Del Negro’s tie and seemingly tried to provoke him with two successive jabs into his chest. Paxson was even heard to angrily challenge Del Negro to a fight."
 
Del Negro did not retaliate for fear of having his contract voided or career damaged.

Bon Jovi or Def Leppard and Andrea Bargnani’s miracle three or Flip Murray’s flip?

To quote the 'great' Bon Jovi, Andrea Bargnani and ‘Flip’ Murray were ‘Livin' on a Prayer’.

Recently, the Toronto Raptors’ post and Chicago Bulls’ swing received a little help when their heaves were answered by a higher power –of some sort. Of course, the Raptors and Bobcats will take all the divine intervention they can get - even if it comes courtesy of a hair band years past their prime, if they ever had one - because both franchises are battling for the eighth and final playoff birth in the Eastern Conference.

John Wall versus Derrick Rose vol. Media Hype

The NCAA tournament is done for Kentucky. John Wall is thinking about the next move and that’s the leap to the League of Extraordinary Ballplayers.

Many sports outlets have dubbed Wall as a “once in a generation” type player. Some have even gone to claim that “John Wall is the greatest point guard athlete ... ever.” Wow.

Brad Miller Unhappy with Flagrant Foul

"I'd say questionable doesn't describe [how I feel about the call]," Miller said. "Obviously, I led the league in flagrant fouls with Ron Artest back in the day. I know what their definition of one [is]. Apparently, from the playoffs last year they vary [from] person to person and situation. I was up against the odds in that scenario for sure."

It was easy to read between the lines and see how frustrated Miller was that Miami's Dwyane Wade received a favorable call in that situation.

"I was just standing there with my damn arm up," he said. "He comes in like he always does and I just don't fall down. That's the joy of certain people against certain people."

Derrick Rose Says Bulls Can Sign Major FA this Summer

It often takes a star to get a star, which is why point guard Derrick Rose believes his Bulls are on course to land one of the big-name, high-profile free agents this summer.

Either Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh or Joe Johnson could be coming to Chicago soon.

"It would be huge for us. It would make us a serious contender,'' Rose told FanHouse Thursday afternoon before the Bulls played the Magic in Orlando. "I think we can get one of them. We have other things to worry about right now, getting into the playoffs, but I can't wait for that day (landing another star) to come.''
