The Brown Five is a daily breakdown of five stories that Brown stumbled upon and cause his eyebrows to raise up a bit. This probably won't be daily because Brown has the attention span of a...hey look! A bicycle..
1) Mavs eek out a streak
The Mavericks won against the Suns last night, staving off a comeback from the Suns in the waning minutes. The Mavericks were on top for most of the night, but what's interesting is that if you watch and if you listen to commentators, Josh Howard is, indeed, becoming the number one option instead of Dirk. You know what? I think that is the best thing that could happen. I don't think the team can win with Dirk being THE guy with a supporting cast. I think that if Howard and Dirk can be on equal footing and the GUYS, then this team CAN win.
2) Zo is done, for real this time
Alonzo Mourning tore the patellar tendon in his right knee last night, and according to Udonis Haslem, all he said when he was on the floo rwas "It's over, it's over". It went so far as to have Zo refuse to be carried off the court in a stretcher, but limp off while being supported by two of his teammates. Mourning is going to go down as one of the best defenders of all time, and for coming back from a kidney condition after receiving a transplant.
3) I told you that Parcells would go to Atl-- wait, huh?
Well, the shores of Miami beach were calling to the Tuna instead of Atlanta. I like Parcells, and I think he can bring in some stability. My only question for Miami now is...are they ready to sign Curtis Martin, Richie Anderson, Aaron Glenn, and Vinny Testaverde to contracts? Here comes the Parcells express!
4) Oh yeah, hockey is violent, maybe I should watch more
Not sure if you've seen it, but check out the video circulating showing why Chris Simon has been suspended for a record 30 games for stepping on Jordan Ruutu's skate. You might have to watch the video a couple of times to really see what's happening, but when you realize that he's damn near trying to slice the dude's achilles tendon, it's pretty disgusting. This is pretty disturbing shit for professional sports, as that is almost for sure a career ending injury.
5) TO vs. Jessica Simpson
It was a joke, meant to make fun of the fact that this story is still alive when it should be long dead. Get over it people, including me.
Take the time to go read Big's breakdown of the bowl games and why you should watch them...Here.
