Chris Broussard vs. Mark Cuban

Mavs owner Mark Cuban is furious with Chris Broussard after the ESPN reporter tweeted Wednesday night that Cuban was "beside himself. Driving around downtown HOUSTON begging (thru texts) Jordan's family 4 address to DeAndre's home." Cuban fired back (over Twitter) by cursing out Broussard, saying "If you had any ethics u would msg me and I will give u his address." Broussard, meanwhile, is standing by his multiple sources. For what it's worth, I met Broussard while a lowly journalism student in 2004 and he couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Same with Darren Rovell.

I am grateful to root for the Boston Celtics and not the Boston Unicorns.

Throwback Lovely Lady of the Day

I wasn't sure who to choose for today's Throwback LLOD so I asked for suggestions on Twitter. I came really close to choosing Vanessa Marcil and Kathy Ireland, who got several votes, but in the end went with Marisa Miller. Hope you agree with the choice (click here for full-size gallery). 

Hot Clicks Giveaway

Hippocrates once said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” What you put into your body is important and our friends at Carington Farms want you to eat healthier.

I'll send to the 20th, 40th, 60th, 80th and 100th person to email me ( the cost of a Seahawks tailgate hearse. The answer was in AM Clicks. Please make the subject line "Carrington Farms."

Bizarre Play of the Day

Odds & Ends

Bartolo Colon learned his work ethic from a pet donkey ... Rob Gronkowski thought Tom Brady hated him at first ... Today is the anniversary of Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit and A-Rod's first hit ... Tim Kurkjian is sexy ... Bill Cosby's and Donald Trump's Walk of Fame stars will not be removed ... A ranking of Lil Wayne mixtapes ... Doughnuts of your dreams ... And people wonder why I love Samantha Hoopes so much ... Patriots LB Jamie Collins can do backflips ... Most impressive Cosplay costumes ... So I realize this wasn't one of my best Hot Clicks but everything I wrote got zapped as I tried to publish and I had to start over. It sucked. I'll do better tomorrow.
