Bullets: Oklahoma’s best-selling throwback jersey is not Barry Sanders

Tim Duffie on Kevin Peterson, baseball wins again and Marcus Smart talks about punching Matt Bonner.




This is the slowest news day I’ve seen since probably last summer…somebody needs to call for Gundy’s head again!

Smart on not punching Matt Bonner in the nuts: “”Looking at the film, it does look a little intentional. But that’s not who I am. I’m not a dirty player, nor was I trying to (hit Bonner below the waistband).

“But looking at the film, I can definitely see where that comes into play. The NBA made the right decision with the one-game suspension and I’m just glad to be back out here tonight with these guys.

“You don’t find too many players in this league that still play that hard. So it’s something that I take pride in playing hard, but you’ve definitely gotta find a balance between it.” (Mass Live)
