'Tik Tok,' Russell


CFN

Gazette staff
It is hard to imagine electropop party girl Ke$ha taking time out of her busy days to tune into the NBA. This is, after all, the woman who begins the morning by brushing her teeth “with a bottle of Jack,” if her 2009 No. 1 hit “Tik Tok” is to be believed. If that is truly the start of her schedule, it might be a struggle for her to make the evening tip-off.

Fish takes the bait


CFN

Gazette staff
When Derek Fisher left the Dallas Mavericks in December to be closer to his family in California, only to re-sign with the OKC Thunder a couple of months later, Mavs owner Mark Cuban offered his opinion, which is basically this: Fisher is a back-stabbing megalomaniac who will roundabout his way to another championship ring (because five isn’t enough, clearly).

“Oh, he’s a diva. I call him Sasha Fierce. On the court, he’s a fierce competitor. Off the court, he’s chilling in front of the mirror, making sure he got the right lip balm on.”
