Nets’ Garnett Blows in Pacers’ West’s Ear

Brooklyn Nets power forward Kevin Garnett did his best Lance Stephenson impression, blowing in David West’s ear and drawing a technical foul on the Indiana Pacers power forward in the first quarter of Saturday night’s game at Barclays Center.

Garnett fouled West, then got in his face and blew in his ear, causing West to push him. The two continued jawing and had to be separated by the officials.

“I didn’t like that. I didn’t like it,” West said after the Pacers’ 110-85 rout of the Nets. “I just know it was too close and I didn’t like it. It was just too much. I don’t really play them games. We’re out there to play basketball, so let’s play basketball. Everybody was kinda looking at me trying to figure out what made me push him or whatever, but he blew in my face, an aggressive blow at that. I think Lance’s was more sensual, you know? That was an aggressive one.”

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
