ESPN’s big dog, Chris Berman must’ve told his barber to give him the ‘Merca cut.  Business in the front, 80’s coke-party in the back.  Seriously, look at that blonde-ish golden locks of pure 80’s action movie villain.

Most impressive rookie so far in Las Vegas Summer League? Emmanuel Mudiay.

The Denver Nuggets might have mistakenly drafted someone worthy of a #7 pick. Stay tuned for more info to come……..

LAS VEGAS — Point guards at Summer League have the power of the ball in their hands. Combine that with them trying to impress someone to give them a job (ideally with an NBA team, for most it will be overseas) and you get one thing: Shots. Good shots, bad shots, but lots of shots. Guards are trying to impress scouts/GMs with their scoring. They want an eye-catching stat line.

Emmanuel Mudiay has stood out against that backdrop.

“The first thing you see is he is a true point guard…” Denver Nuggets Summer League coach Micah Nori said. “Guys are going to love to play with him, they are going to continue to run for him because he is a pass-first point guard….

“And I see him being able to lead. With his ability to pass and his unselfishness, guys are going to want to follow him.”

When it Rains it Pours: Ty Lawson Edition

Sometimes you get the worm and sometimes the worm gets you.

According to TMZ, Denver Nuggets point guard (soon to be traded) Ty Lawson was arrested early this morning on the 101 freeway in Los Angeles on DUI charges.  Amazingly, in the video on the linked page (click here if you missed it) it seems likely that TMZ talked to Ty outside the club only minutes before he was pulled over.

According to police he was pulled over for speeding, then given a field sobriety test that he failed.  He was taken to jail and bail was set at $5,000 which is a drop in the bucket for a man who had $6,000 in cash in his pockets.

Cops say during the arrest, Lawson identified himself as an NBA player — and was carrying $6,000 IN CASH on his person. 

This is the second DUI arrest for Lawson in the past 6 months, he was pulled over in January by Denver police after a team dinner event.   He also reportedly has a DUI in Missouri from a few years ago.

The borderline All-Star is going through a tough time on and off the court right now, the Nuggets recently signed veteran point guard Jameer Nelson to a 3-year deal AND they drafted another point guard, Emmanuel Mudiay, who is KILLIN IT in the NBA Summer league.

A smarter person than I would read between the lines here and see a probably depressed guy (Lawson) who is struggling with everything that he holds close, he’s a man without a country at the moment waiting for an impending trade out of Denver and yet sports-professionalism says he can’t even really discuss it publicly.  He’s between a rock and hard place in his professional career.

Having said that, I do have a suggestion for him: Bruh…….just Uber it, seriously.  Get the app, it’s free, Uber.
