2011 NBA All Star Reserves Announced . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

For a little over a week basketball experts and fans alike have debated over which elite level players would fill the remaining fourteen 2011 NBA All Star roster spots.  Would Rookie sensation Blake Griffin get the call to play in front of the hometown fans of Los Angeles, would the NBA reward great play over popularity,  which veteran performers would get replaced by the NBA’s new crop of talent, and of course which players would be left on the outside looking in? Once the starters, chosen by NBA fans, were announced for the 60th All Star game the league’s commissioner and coaches have been trying to compile a roster of the leagues most elite talent at every position. Pretty tough job huh? Trying to narrow a list of more than 360 players down to 24 (12 on each team). There is no way that you can ever get it right.

The University of Memphis Men’s Basketball program got their prized recruit, Adonis Thomas, yesterday morning when he signed his Letter of Intent to play for Coach Josh Pastner and the Tigers next year. Thomas, who is the Number 1 ranked high school basketball player in the Class of 2011 according to www.sportingnews.com, gave his verbal committment to the Tigers on October 28th, choosing to stay home in Memphis over taking his talents to South Beach, Tennessee, Arkansas, Florida, or UCLA. Thomas’ signing with the hometown team marks a significant achievement for Coach Pastner as he is now 2 for 2 when attempting to land the City of Memphis’ top basketball prospects. This year it was Thomas, last year he convinced Joe Jackson, Tarik Black, and sharp shooter Chris Crawford to stay home and help him sure up a young Memphis squad.

Following yesterday’s official signing of Thomas, Coach Pastner made a visit to The Chris Vernon Show to share his jubilance with our listeners and talk about other news and notes surrounding the team as they prepare to open the 2010 – 2011 Season Friday November 12 against Centenary.

Charles Barkley Admits To Taking Money From Agents While At Auburn

Before Charles Barkley was making us all laugh as a commentator for TNT and before he was recking shop in the NBA for the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns, and Houston Rockets he was the dominating force in SEC Basketball for the Auburn Tigers. During his three year stint in Auburn, Alabama Charles poured in huge numbers as an undersized center (6’4″) averaging 14.8 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game. This made him a highly sought after commodity for all NBA teams which also brought on the attention on NBA agents (representatives). Charles knowing this didn’t hesitate to “borrow” money from those looking to negotiate his way into the NBA, which he admitted to Dan Patrick earlier today.

Along with sharing that information with The Dan Patrick Show Barkley gives his thoughts on NCAA rules and regulations, the Reggie Bush situation with USC and the Heisman Trophy, flopping, sports betting, Kevin Durrant’s ranking amongst the NBA’s best, and the Ines Sainz controversy. I really can’t wait until the NBA season when Charles starts making his regular appearances again. Click here to hear Charles Barkley’s interview on the Dan Patrick’s Show.

Coach Cal Visits The Dan Patrick Show . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (Need I Say More)

Ex University of Memphis and current Kentucky Head Basketball Coach John Calipari has a new book to promote, so of course he was making his media rounds to talk about it (which he didn’t talk about it) earlier this week and one of those stops included The Dan Patrick Show (luckily). Dan is not known for throwing any softballs to his guest during interviews, preferring to keep the show as real as possible and on Wednesday he pulled no punches when speaking with Coach Cal.

Pac 10 Reveals New Logo and Name


We all had to know it was coming. There was no way that the Pacific 10 Conference which now features 12 schools with the addition of Utah and Colorado in June would stay the Pacific 10. Earlier yesterday Pac 10 Commissioner, Larry Scott, revealed a new logo, new name for the 2011-2012 school year (Pacific 12 Conference – Pac 12), and set of new digital media initiatives. While in New York, Pac 10 officials showed their new logo and allowed fans to experience a new digital initiative which includes streaming video and a new Pac-10.org website with original content. They are hoping that these new items, initiatives, and introduction of Utah and Colorado will put them on the same level of the SEC and Big 12 Conferences, specifically on the football field.
