Former 15-year NBA veteran Olden Polynice joined JT ‘the Brick’ and Tomm Looney earlier tonight to talk all things basketball, and he made an interesting comparison between Kobe Bryant and James Harden…
Olden Polynice: “I watched James Harden shoot free throws after twisting an ankle, he didn’t break it or do anything he just twisted an ankle, but he pulled a Karate Kid-Ralph Macchio type of thing where he stood on one leg! I’m saying to myself, ‘This man, Kobe Bryant, shredded his Achilles and managed to stand up there and shoot two free throws and walk off the court’. That’s the difference between Kobe Bryant and everybody else; they’ll do all these gimmicky little things. I’m like, ‘Dude, you just barely sprained your ankle!’, but he looked like somebody just shot him in the leg or something. That’s the difference.”

Major League Baseball intends to ban home plate collisions as early as the 2014 season, citing a general concern about concussions. Baseball’s all-time hit king Pete Rose joined JT ‘the Brick’ to share his thoughts on the new ban, and poke a few holes in baseball’s argument.
Pete Rose: “Over the last, recent many years, I don't remember any catchers getting concussions. Now of course the name that is going to come up is Buster Posey. Alright, Buster Posey got his foot caught behind his other foot; that's why he got an ankle problem on the collision at home plate up in
Pete Rose went on later to explain how the new ban will turn plays at the plate into a Pro Bowl-like atmosphere:
Pete Rose: “What you're going to start to see, JT, you're going to have a lot of plays that look like the Pro Bowl did two years ago. Guys were just going through the motions and worrying about getting hurt. Is the runner going to take a chance, knowing he is going to get a $25,000 fine? He might get suspended two or three days. I just think it's putting a load on everyone involved, and I don't think it's really necessary."
