Doug Collins: NBA Coach Of The Year

No matter what he does he will always be known as one of Michael Jordan’s first NBA coaches, the man who couldn’t fulfill Jordan’s potential. Even after he left the NBA’s coaching ranks and joined the broadcast booth, he still couldn’t shake the jaundiced eye of the casual NBA fan, thanks to his inability to take Jordan and those young but talented late 80’s Bulls teams to the peak of their ability.

Lou Williams’ ‘I want it all’

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Recently, Lou Williams admitted his Philadelphia 76ers struggled in a loss to the Sacramento Kings because they were out the night before at the Lil’ Wayne concert.

Fair or not, the opinions and editorials on professionalism, or the lack thereof, flew.

What we didn’t know then was that Williams has his own mic’ dreams. Watch the video below and give us your thoughts on his musical talents in the comment box below.

Lil’ Wayne concert to blame for 76ers loss to Kings?

Williams was at a loss for an answer as to why the team didn't play well, although he did mention attending a concert on Saturday night. "It was a combination of things, and it doesn't seem we came out ready to play," he said. "We took a chance last night by going to the Lil Wayne concert." Williams did not say which teammates attended Saturday's concert at the Wells Fargo Center.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Team goes to rap concert. Team stays out late. Team drops a matinee match-up the next day to a weaker opponent.

This isn’t the JV squad at your local high school, but the Philadelphia 76ers, who, in theory, are professionals.

Several 76ers apparently attended the Lil’ Wayne concert on Saturday night and looked sluggish against the lowly Sacramento Kings on Sunday afternoon.

For instance, Lou Williams was at the show and went 1-for-12 against the Kings. To be fair, his sole make was a terrific three-pointer that sent the game into overtime.   

Nobody is saying NBA players can’t have a life. As we know, many love ‘The Life’.

Perhaps the 76ers shouldn’t have gone to a high profile concert the night before a mid afternoon game, especially since they’re battling for playoff seeding in the Eastern Conference.

Another night, it’s nobody’s business. But Williams shouldn’t have commented to reporters. The young guard should have denied, denied, denied or given a terse no comment.

The 76ers are one of the NBA’s best stories. Hopefully, hanging with Lil` Wayne doesn’t overshadow their accomplishments.

Best Pacer Poster Job: Collison on Williams or McRoberts on Turner?

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Last night, the Indiana Pacers’ struggles were temporarily forgotten when they defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 99-86 and made national highlight packages with a pair of fierce facials.

Facial one: newly acquired table-setter Darren Collison stole the ball, sped to the hoop, and powered over fellow little-man Lou Williams.

Facial two: T.J. Ford, freed from Coach Jim O'Brien's bench, tossed an over-the-shoulder pass to Josh McRoberts, who then welcomed Evan Turner to the NBA by giving  the rookie poster job treatment.

Pacer-nation hasn’t had much to cheer for. Not lately, at least. However, Collison and McRoberts gave the former Eastern Conference power some much-needed shine and publicity.

While Indiana fans undoubtedly loved both dunks, HoopsVibe News wants to know which facial you preferred: Collison or McRoberts?

Watch the above videos, form your opinion, and get at us with that opinion in the comment box below.
