The triumphant return of Tony Romo to the Dallas Cowboys lasted less than two games. After missing seven games due to breaking his collarbone against the Eagles back in September, Romo returned last week to lead the Cowboys to victory and keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Yesterday, those hopes ended as Romo re-injured the same collarbone and will now miss the rest of the season after getting beat down by the undefeated Panthers. Not that it matter much because the Cowboys season as a whole died yesterday.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are 11-4 and No. 1 in the Eastern Conference but LeBron James is still disappointed in his team after the Raptors defeated them 103-99 on Wednesday night.

The Los Angeles Lakers are currently 2-12 at the bottom of the Western Conference. The major issue they have which is constantly being discussed, is their lack of ball movement. Eventually it all goes back to Kobe Bryant, who isn’t shooting well this season but is still taking a great deal of shot attempts. Following the Lakers 111-77 loss to the Golden State Warriors, Nick Young was asked about these issues.
LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were focused and ready to go on Wednesday night during their game against the Toronto Raptors. According to the commentator, it’s the Cavs new thing to stand and wait for the opposing team to come out and meet them at center court. Apparently they don’t care who’s already on the court which in this case was the Raptors dancers.
Can you imagine if this happened during an NBA game? Oh yea Malice at the Palace… This was much more subdued but during an Australian NBL game between the Hawks and Kings, a fan in a courtside box tips his beer on Marcus Thornton’s head. He was of course kicked out of the stadium but the funny part is the look on Thornton’s face which is a mixture of anger and confusion while the fan casually looks on as if he wasn’t him when everyone SAW him do it…
#DrakeNight was total success for the Toronto Raptors including a 103-99 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The fans were gifted with limited edition OVO x Raptors sweatshirts and sweatbands and there was a “Hotline Bling” box set up for fans to recreate their own version of Drake’s infamous video and dance moves. The man of the hour was of course in the building and his special guest was his adorable mother.
Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd was not happy with referee Zach Zarba during the Bucks loss to the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night. Kidd was furious and swatted the ball out of Zarba’s hands which of course resulted in him immediately getting tossed out of the game. He had to be restrained by players as he was escorted off the court and back into the locker room.
Whether he’s trolling all the haters or just really likes dabbing, I’m totally with Cam Newton. People made a big deal about him dabbing after a touchdown during the Panthers win over the Titans. Since then he’s continued to do it and danced with children, take that Rosemary Plorin! Now he has special cleats for Turkey day.
