Truth & Rumors
T.O.: Romo better than McNabb
Terrell Owens called Tony Romo "the best quarterback I've played with" and was confident the Cowboys can turn it around. "Once Tony gets back, we'll be back," Owens said. "Hopefully that'll be this weekend. By far, this season is not going to be a mistake." (Dallas Morning News)
Knicks' Curry in D'Antoni's doghouse
Eddy Curry's days as the Knicks' starting center are over, and judging by the harsh language Mike D'Antoni used Tuesday night, Curry won't be seeing the floor anytime soon. D'Antoni expressed disappointment in Curry's play and his conditioning just one week before the Knicks open the season against the Miami Heat. Curry, who was once described as a cornerstone piece of the franchise, is now just an expensive 7-foot ornament. "He's going to have to play better than what he has shown me," D'Antoni said after Curry did not play in Boston's 101-90 victory at the Garden. "He is going to have to pick it up. He has got to pick up his training." D'Antoni is using a short rotation, and even with Jared Jeffries sidelined for at least another month with a broken leg, Curry can't crack the rotation. D'Antoni is even using Malik Rose ahead of Curry. (New York Post)
Nation's top recruit to visit Memphis
South Atlanta's Derrick Favors, who is ranked as the nation's No. 1 basketball prospect by Scout, is heading to Memphis on Saturday for an official visit. Memphis is almost like a "home away from home" for Favors, according to South Atlanta coach Michael Reddick. "Derrick has family around the Memphis area," Reddick said, "and Derrick really likes [Memphis coach John Calipari]. He has done such a great job of coaching at Memphis, and gets the school a lot of media play." The 6-foot-9 Favors has already taken recruiting trips to Georgia Tech, Georgia, and N.C. State. He went to N.C. State last weekend and told Reddick that "it went well" but the two have not talked about it any further. Favors is rumored to be deciding between Georgia Tech and Georgia.
