Malachi's Sports 101

Malachi Sports 101
To the sports world at large, I am Malachi and this is Sports 101! I will be educating you about issues surrounding sports from my perspective and giving you insight into the big games.

Class is now in session!                                                                             


Kardashians! Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them!
Have you ever wondered how would it be with a Kardashian? Well all you need to do is look at professional basketball player Lamar Odom.
Khole Kardashian. and Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian's husband, Odom has been reportedly abusing crack cocaine and is in and lock up in a  hotel room  where his support circle is talking him through an intervention. Initial reports said that Odom was missing for three days on a drug abusing spree.

Some media sources reported that Khloe kicked Odom out of the house last week because of his behavior, but I wonder was it because of her behavior that led the Odom's drug use. There's a difference between living in the lime light as an NBA basketball player and in keeping up with the Kardashians. I mean how many of athletes have the Kardashians have drove insane? You can ask Reggie Bush, Miles Austin, Kris Humphries about their current mental state after with dealing with Kim Kardashian. I  tell you there's something about the mystique of the Kardashians that keeps male athletes lining up at their front door. I guess the only way to overcome the withdrawal symptoms of being with a Kardashian is to follow the path of Lamar Odom and destroy your brain cells so you can forget about the forbidden and unmentionable experiences from being with the Kardashian sisters.

Was Pippen Tripping? Not According to the Law!

Athletes can have it hard trying to live a normal life out in the public, some of them can't even sit down at a restaurant and enjoy a meal with their family with out a deranged fan taking things to the extreme. It must be the money!

Scottie Pippen
For example, charges against former Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen has been dropped concerning the incident between him and Camran Shafighi, who demanded an autograph from Pippen in a restaurant in Malibu. Reports suggest that Shafighi faked a seizure after the denial of an autograph, claiming that Pippen punched him in the face.

According to the report at the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office, Pippen told investigators Shafighi started, "grabbing at him, cursing him and then spit in his face."

The reports, according to Shafighi's position, said that Pippen punched and kicked him. It also said "The last memory Shafighi had before losing consciousness was seeing Pippen's foot coming toward his face."

Shafighi has since filed a lawsuit against Pippen, asking for 4 million dollars for  his physical injuries. However, according to reports, the only noticeable injuries were a small cut on his lip and a bruise on his chin.
Wow! He may can get a dollar to buy a bandage.

Eric Reid
News and Notes:
First round pick safety Eric Reid was named a starter for the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 8 regular-season opener by defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. The rookie beat out veteran safety Craig Dahl to take over former all pro Dashon Goldson's position on one of the leagues best defenses.

Fangio said that Reid improved and has become steady. "He's grown in the position, which has allowed his ability to come through more and more," Fangio commented . "He's tackled well in the games which is important for us."
