STERLING: I coined 'Dominique is Magnifique.' He loved it. He was a pleasure.
When Wilkins, known as the Human Highlight Film during his prime, was recently honored with a 13 ½-foot tall, 18,500-pound statue outside of the Hawks’ home, Philips Arena, Bird quipped, ‘I’m pretty sure it’s not made in a defensive stance.’

If Brady suspension isn't reduced, Kraft puts NFL's well-being above Patriots'
There's nothing to lose by going scorched-earth on the rest of the league -- except for Goodell's good favor and the precious approval of his fellow owners.
Pathetic. Kraft should be fighting to keep that first-round pick.
But it's business and billionaire buddies' desires above everything else.
Kraft used to be one of you. Today, given a public opportunity to reveal his true allegiances, he chose them.
Help me out here, because barring an elimination of Brady's suspension or the minuscule possibility that the league has more on the Patriots than was revealed in the 243 pages of the Wells Report, I do not know how Kraft's billionaire-boys-club gesture today does a damn thing to help out his football team.
Seriously, what does it do besides save a few million bucks in lawyers' fees? It costs them a first-round pick, more damaging than even the Brady suspension given Bill Belichick's knack for turning No. 1 picks into dependable players at worst and cornerstones on a number of occasions.
Tracing it back (6 days), Borges mocked Chad for thinking Kraft placed the NFL before TB12. Borges countered that Kraft put the "other 52" ahead of Brady. Chad's retort of "took you 6 days to think of that?" seems to have irritated Ronnie... plenty of Chad's followers chiming in with additional humorous replies.nattysez said:Borges is talking shit to Chad on Twitter. I wonder what Chad wrote that struck a nerve.
