Ruthless & Toothless

According to The Herald Sun in Australia, the land down under may be home to the next "Shaq" super-sized superstar. Nathan Jawai is the young man's name, and he measures 208cm in height and weighs in at 128kg. He is described as "nimble and quick" in the post position, and also powerful. He recently scored 24 points and pulled down 24 rebounds in the NBL All-Star game, and should be a first round pick in the future. Some say he may grow to be bigger than Luc Longley, Chris Anstey and Andrew Bogut (previous and current Australian players in the NBA). Read more about Nathan Jawai.

Good news in the TJ Ford injury is that he will only miss one week. Al Horford the Hawks player who was involved in Ford hitting the deck, also payed a visit to the hospital to check on the guard. Ford was in attendance for last night's Raptors vs Mavs game in Toronto.

Last night saw some interesting antics prior to and during the Pistons vs. Rockets game in Detroit, and the Jazz vs. Suns game in Phoenix. ESPN featured a rapping Rasheed Wallace as one of its top 10 plays on the Sportscenter countdown. Sheed was entering the arena wearing his headset and decide to start flowing. Rip Hamilton provided the role of backup dancer. Definitely a slow night for sports.

Then there was Steve Nash. The Suns point guard was clocked in the face by Carlos Boozer during the Jazz vs. Suns game, and chipped a tooth. Nash handed the part of his tooth to the team trainer, then gave a silly interviewto ESPN reporter Michelle Tafoya before he hit the locker room.
