No Cowher in Carolina? “Current speculation is that some of the large bags of gold hand-delivered to Cowher’s home daily by Fox Sports executives might come available this off-season, as the Steelers coach looks to return to the sidelines. Furthermore, that speculation has Cowher landing in Carolina to coach the Panthers for the aforementioned real-estate reasons – namely, that’s somewhat close to where Cowher lives now.
For a lot of folks, that’s enough. Cowher lives in Carolina, he’s going to coach the Panthers. Game, set, match. Since I don’t think a single real estate-based rumor has proven out in the ten years the OBR has been around, you’ll pardon our skepticism about this line of analysis.” [The OBR]
Let…him…dance! “Not taking basketball seriously is bad. However, does anyone think that James doesn’t take the game seriously? If anything, we too often get on players like Kobe and Tim Duncan for being too stone-faced in crunch time. LeBron James has proven himself capable of closing out big games with almost chilling dominance, uplifting teammates, and just generally excelling at all you could ask of a superstar. Dancing may annoy Joakim Noah, but he can decide who dances and who doesn’t (or, knowing Noah, maybe dance a little himself) when he accomplishes what James has.” [Bethlehem Shoals/The Baseline]

So far, so good… “At least for now, it would seem that the Cavs are on the right path. They’ve had Delonte with the team for over three weeks straight now . . . since he missed the team flight to Florida last month. The team is assessing him and his day-to-day emotional health internally. When there’s a blip on the “Delonte Is Off” radar, Mike Brown will either hold him out of the game . . . or be quick to yank him if he appears sluggish, unfocused or agitated on the court.” [The Wine and Goldrush]
