NBA ref suing reporter over Tweet

The NBA has long been accused of dirty officiating, but referee Bill Spooner is maintaining his innoncence… going so far he is sueing a reporter.

The league investigated Spooner after AP reporter Krawcsynzski accused him of fixing a Minnesota Timbwerwolves-Houston Rockets game back in January. The league came up empty handed in their investigation, and now Spooner is suing Krawyczynski for $75,000.

 Krawczynski tweeted, “Ref Bill Spooner told Rambis he’d “get it back” after a bad call. Then he made an even worse call on Rockets. That’s NBA officiating folks,” and refuses to delete his tweet!

Brent Barry’s father speaks out on Tony Parker Erin Barry cheating allegations; Eva Longoria confirms affair

Brent Barry’s father has confirmed what we all already knew; Tonny Parker cheated on his wife Eva Longoria with teammate Brent Barry’s wife Erin. Rick Barry is a legendary NBA player, whose son Brent followed in his footsteps playing in the NBA from 1995 until last year when he was waived by the Houston Rockets. Longoria allegedly discovered the text messages between Erin Barry and Parker confirming the affair.

Rick Barry told TMZ, “I feel horrible for my son. I’m in shock.”

Longoria allegedly discovered the text messages between Erin Barry and her husband prompting her to file for divorce today at a Los Angeles courthouse.

“I knew [Erin] was moving out of the house soon and SHE was the one that filed for divorce. This is the straw that broke the camel’s back,” Rick told TMZ.

Brent Barry and Tony Parker were teammates from 2004-2008. Brent and Erin Barry filed for divorce two weeks ago, and a source told Examiner.com that it was likely Brent Barry who contacted Longoria to tell her about the text messages.

Rick added, “He (Brent) is going to be devastated.  I can’t even imagine him going through this … the divorce was hard enough news.”
