THROUGH THE WIRE: NEWS (11/26/10)
24. SECURITY! SECURITY! The outlaw King is about to return home. The Cleveland Cavaliers look to beef up their Quicken Loans Centre security like they where Jerry Springer in anticipation for LeBron James return. Now that's a good decision. The security may have to be on high alert for the reception the Miami Heat star will get on December 2ND. All rocks must be handed in to the ushers on entrance. All joking aside however the Cavs organisation is asking its fans to refrain from any obscene gestures or t-shirts. I wonder how many number 23 jersey's will be worn though. Erm...NONE! Seriously though hers hoping the only drama from this matchup is on the court, basketball speaking. LeBron made the best decision for himself and it's time to move on. Besides Cleveland fans become warned the hating Toronto fans only made Vince Carter better when he played against them.
48. It's taken two elbow operations to lead David Lee back to recovery but still his return is golden news for the Warriors. Lee worked out with his team today in Oakland and he and his 14.3 points and 11.3 rebounds averages are cleared to play. Wilson Chandler better put his gum shield back on. David will meet his team in Minneapolis where he will fly out in hope to face the Minnesota Timberwolves with them and you know his post presence will be needed against the heart filled Kevin Love. Still Golden State are unsure if one of their greatest Warriors will be involved in the Western conference fight. Both the Warriors and the Timberwolves are living up to their names these days, looking real strong. This could be a crucial, power move, tone setting game.
82. Speaking of elbows, more are being thrown around than in a Ludacris video. Just a day after 'THROUGH THE WIRE' reported on the President's advice for Miami fans, Barack Obama is the subject of basketball news once again. The basketball passionate President got a bit too into it the other day during a pickup game (it's always good to say 'President' and 'pickup game' in the same sentence) and was hit in the mouth with an elbow. Maybe someone didn't like his game (Presidential or on the court). All joking aside this elbow was errant while Obama was 'D'ing' up so there was no need for the secret service to intervene. Still you would be a bit worried if you just elbowed the President on his court. This Thanksgiving turkey trimming game ended up with Obama requiring 12 stitches, OUCH! Well this just proves that just like in the office, on the court Barack goes hard. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!! TIM DAVID HARVEY.
