NBA player to join a fraternity during lockout?

While most players are going over seas to play basketball during the NBA lockout, Minnesota Timberwolves Anthony Randolph has taken the Animal House route and wants to join a fraternity. Randolph left college early to pursue his NBA dreams after his freshmen year at LSU. While Randolph continued to take online classes for his sociology major, with an NBA season likely, he has rented an apartment for the fall in Baton Rouge within walking distance of LSU’s campus.

“The students know I’m from the NBA, but it’s more fun because I can focus on my schoolwork,” Randolph told Yahoo Sports. “I don’t have the basketball distraction. I’m a more focused student now after being in the real world for a couple of years.”

Hope he handles hazing better than Dez Bryant!

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!
