dougjimDoug Wiggins continues down his troubled path. The highly touted recruit has had issues ever since enrolling in college. At Uconn he failed two drug tests and ended up being such a hindrance that he was forced to transfer to UMass this season. You know you are a real piece of work when Coach Calhoun gives you the boot. He has dealt with some thugs–including Wiggins former teammate AJ Price. The difference is, post laptop stealing, AJ Price has seemingly righted his ship and is headed in the correct direction.

This from the Amherst Police log:

Douglas Edward Wiggins Jr., 20, of East Hartford, Con., was arrested Saturday at 3:49 a.m. at a Puffton Village home on a charge of breaking and entering to commit a misdemeanor, police said. Wiggins was arrested after he was found inside the bathroom of another person’s home, police said.

Maybe it’s all just a big misunderstanding. Dude had to ‘go’… it was an emergency. All of the Puffton Village apartment look the same–that’s the angle I’d play if I was Wiggins. It took me 4 years to figure out my way around that place.

Regardless, Wiggins has been suspended indefinately. He was sitting out the year due to transfer rules and now he might end up playing at Hartford. Good job, Doug.

Mayweather is doing his part to stimulate the stagnant American economy, what are you doing?

Rumor is that it was 30 G’s–he keeps it real. My favorite part is about 40 seconds in… dudes done this before.

Lastly, anyone who is into hip hop… it sounds like Currency – “Where Da Cash At” is in the background. I’m almost positive it is–what an odd song to choose Floyd.

Read the SEC’s official press release here. The charges are related to search engine mamma.com. More as it becomes available.


Cuban has a brief post on his blog regarding the situation:

I wish I could say more, but I will have to leave it to this, and let the judicial process do its job.

RE: SEC Civil Action in the United States District

for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division

Mark Cuban today responded to a civil complaint filed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in the United States District for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division. In its complaint, the Commission charges that Mr. Cuban engaged in violations of the federal securities laws in connection with transactions in the securities of Mamma.com Inc.

This matter, which has been pending before the Commission for nearly two years, has no merit and is a product of gross abuse of prosecutorial discretion. Mr. Cuban intends to contest the allegations and to demonstrate that the Commission’s claims are infected by the misconduct of the staff of its Enforcement Division.

Mr. Cuban stated, “I am disappointed that the Commission chose to bring this case based upon its Enforcement staff’s win-at-any-cost ambitions. The staff’s process was result-oriented, facts be damned. The government’s claims are false and they will be proven to be so.”

This whole situation has the potential to get very messy. A member of Cuban’s legal team has provided an email written from an S.E.C. lawyer, accusing Cuban of being unpatriotic for helping fund the documentary Loose Change. For those unfamiliar, it is a movie which claims President Bush and his staff had a role in the September 11th attacks.

Cuban is going to fight the S.E.C. on these chargers. I think he is going to fight them hard. He could have just payed the approximate $750,000 that he illegally saved in the matter and a penalty but he has chosen to fight the charges.

Good old LJ has released a statement in regards to a confrontation he had last weekend when he allegedly spit a drink in a womens face and threatened to kill the womens boyfriend.

Johnson had this to say:

“This is the first time in my life I actually had to stand up, I mean actually woke up and kind of be disgusted with myself and disgusted as far as the way my life and my career is heading right now.”

Kind of disgusted? Oh, LJ you’re being so hard on yourself. Kind of? Seems a little light. I am kind of disgusted with myself when I miss a layup.  I was kind of disgusted with myself when I got a ‘C’ on an exam. I’m kind of disgusted with myself when I oversleep for work. Spitting a drink is a females face would not be on my list of time I’d be just, ya know, a little, kinda, maybe disgusted with myself.

I don’t know what is more outrageous this story or when Larry told Littman from The Sporting News that if Littman wanted a watch as nice as his than he should start dealing crack.

After the Redskins defeated the Eagles on Sunday, the Philadelphia fans decided to egg the team bus as it left the parking lot.  Here is some quotes from the story by Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post.

“Oh yeah, they just come raining down when you pull in there,” Casey Rabach said. “You know, I don’t know how many we got hit with, but it looked like a hailstorm.”

“They were lighting it up,” Devin Thomas said.

Philadelphia fans are nuts and I love it, but seriously I am glad we have gotten past throwing batteries. I do have one question though, did they bring eggs to the game?

A friend of mine had an interesting take on Angel’s catcher Mike Napoli last night while watching game 3 of the Red Sox-Angels series. He said, “Napoli gives me hope that there is still a chance I can play major league baseball”. I found the comments to be quite funny; I’ve been harping about Napoli being a fat ass all series. I don’t like his double chins. I don’t like how his walk out song is Soulja Boy either but that’s neither here nor there.

That’s Mike on the far right inappropriately touching that poor girl. This is just one example in a number of photos that hit thedirty.com no long after the Angels clinched a playoff birth. Including this one where Napoli is once again touching the merch. I already knew he looked like a d-bag but now we know he can also back that look up with actions. At the same time, I love to see this stuff because it is healthy to laugh amd it’s the type of shenanigans that keep the site going.
