    Keep in mind that Phelps' lung capacity is incredible. That didn't even get him buzzed.

    Watched France vs Spain this morning and it appeared to be an NBA Allstar B team out there as most of the players were NBA players.

    Spain had the Gasol brothers, Rudy Fernamdez and Serge Ibaka.......France had Tony Parker, Boris Diaw, Ronny Turiaf, Michael Pietrus and Nicholas Batum.

    A close game, but the Spaniards with more star power and execution closed out the game on a 12-2 run winning 66-59 and Turiaf and Batum almost started a war between the countries with some very hard frustration fouls in the end that would resulted in suspensions if this had been one of David Stern's NBA sanctioned games.:argue:

    They also considered the Krewe and the Brass???

    The Krewe could be sort of cool even though nobody will know what it means... just because it sounds like crew.

    The Pelicans is just really lame though. The guy already named a minor league baseball team the Pelicans in the past, so he's definitely capable of following through on this.

    Not sure this would be my first idea of a team name even if they have alot of carnivals down there.

    Right around Ponies and Lambs. I like it better than Krewe and Brass but less than New Orleans Sterns or New Orleans Unibrows.

    Utah should give "Jazz" back to Nawlens.

    I've been to SLC and there's absolutely NO Jazz to be heard in that town.

    How is he making that much money still?

    Do those expenses count gambling losses? Those can really wreak havoc will a budget.

    He probably is still getting royalties from jersey sales and such.
