"I was talking to my teammate and he decided he wanted to put his 2 cents into it. I'm a quiet guy, a laid-back guy, but I'm not going to let nobody talk trash to me. He's on a good team now, so he thinks he can talk a little bit," Durant said. "There's a lot of fake tough guys in this league and he's one of them."
Durant said these comments as Bosh exchanged a few words to teammate, James Harden. Durant whispered to Harden to tell him to try to dunk on Bosh on the next play. As Harden tried to do that, Bosh made a hard foul on him.
"I think he was telling Harden to dunk on me, or dunk the next one," Bosh said before giving a cleaned-up version of the exchange. "I expressed that, 'No, he's not going to dunk that.' And he expressed, 'Yes, he is.' It just kind of went back and forth."
Both received technical calls after this incident.
"I'm no punk. I wasn't even talking to him, first off. He decided to butt in and I'm not going to just let that slide, especially in our house," Durant said. "Like I said, he's not one of those guys that I look at and say, 'Oh, he has a rap for talking back to guys or always getting into it.'
"No, he's a nice guy. He's not one of those guys, so I'm not going to let that type of person say something to me like that," he added.
Bosh had his own opinion on this.
"I don't think it was anything to get a tech over," Bosh said. "It was just talking. He stood his ground, and I respect that."
Durant's last statement? Well, he said Bosh is a cool dude off the floor, but on the floor: all the stuff goes out the door.
I'd take Durant anyday over Bosh, no offense.
Ron Artest has been known for rapping. Just recently, he dropped a hit single called "Champions" after his Lakers won the NBA Finals. It then got featured on the video game, NBA 2K11.
Now, before the All-Star game comes up, Artest plans to put up a mixtape before the weekend starts, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“There’s going to be a bunch of celebrities on it,” Artest said. “I can’t say the names yet, but there’s going to be a bunch of people on there that you wouldn’t believe that would rap or sing. A lot of athletes, a lot of rappers and a couple comedians.”
Rumors have already been coming up that Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Monica (Shannon Brown's wife) may feature in it.
However, don't bet on Pau Gasol being on there.
“He’s definitely not on it,” Artest said of Gasol.

It can't be too easy for Derrick Rose to be balling this hard. Rose has been leading the Bulls to the top of the Eastern Conference and the NBA. He is also on his way to possibly becoming the MVP.
However, after a game, he told CSNChicago.com the following:
“My back is killing me right now. We’ve got time to rest, get treatment, and hopefully it will heal by the time we play Friday.”
Rose has been playing about 40 minutes a game and has been flying all over the place. I guess we can see why his back is killing him.
Fan House reports that the Washington Wizards have called up Rio Grande Valley Vipers' point guard, Mustafa Shakur. Shakur has played with the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Sacramento Kings, too. He is also known to play with the Tulsa 66ers and the Arizona Wildcats in college.
Shakur said in the interview with Fan House that he may be able to play tonight for Washington as they take on the Boston Celtics. Shakur was signed to a reportedly ten-day contract.
The Wizards currently do not have depth at the point guard position with only John Wall and Kirk Hinrich there after the team released Lester Hudson and traded away Gilbert Arenas to the Orlando Magic.
I think Shakur is a pretty good pick-up. He's done well as a back-up for many teams. If he performs well enough, he could get more than just a ten-day contract. And many people have asked if this dude is related to a certain somone, Tupac. Okay, no. Just because they have the same last name, doesn't mean they're related. It's been asked a lot, but let's just make that clear.
Do good out there, Shakur.
I was very fortunate to interview former Indianapolis Colts’ tight end, Ken Dilger. Dilger is one of the top tight ends to play for the Colts and was an All-Star. Dilger played many great seasons with the Colts before going to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and win a Super Bowl in his first year.
I thank Christian of taylorpr.com for giving me this chance to interview him.
I may not that the audio got screwed up in the making when I talked to him, so some of the answers did not come up sadly.
Josh Dhani: What kind of experience is it for you at the Pro Bowl?
Ken Dilger: You know, it was a great experience for me and it’s a great honor to be voted in by your peers in the National Football League and to go out there and see all the guys playing.
JD: What kind of experience is it for you to play in the Super Bowl with the Buccaneers?
KD: It was fun and it was great. I think every player in the National Football League hearing about and wanting go to the Super Bowl and dreaming about it. We faced the Raiders and we came out on top.
JD: Tell me a little bit about your program.
KD: I am representing Procter and Gamble where on the Facebook page, you submit pictures of your team. You can win Colts gear, Tampa Bay gear; teams they’re rooting for. All over the country, fans pull out and donate money to charity. She gives the money to the St. Jude’s Children Research Center.
JD: What was it like playing with Peyton Manning and Jim Harbaugh?
KD: It was great. Jim was great. He was great in the NFL and he had a great time with us. And Manning has gone on to do a lot of great things.
JD: What do you think of Jim Harbaugh being coach of the 49ers??
KD: I think Jim is going to do great. His family are good at coaches. They coached Baltimore, Western Kentucky. I think Jim is going to be a great coach in San Francisco.
JD: What was it like playing long snapper?
KD: Our long snapper got hurt. It’s an interesting position to play.
JD: What do you think the Colts could have done differently to beat the Jets?
KD: I thought they could have been more aggressive in the first half.
JD: Have you ever given advice to any of the Colts tight ends?
KD: No, not yet. But Dallas Clark, Jacob Tamme have been doing great so far with the Colts.
JD: Who do you think is honestly better: Tom Brady or Peyton Manning?
KD: That’s a tough question. Brady has the rings, Manning has done well. He’s got a ring. They are both great quarterbacks and are the best in the league right now.
JD: Where would you rank Manning as one of the top QB’s in NFL history?
KD: I would put him somewhere in the top ten. Anytime you get someone like that up there, I think Manning is up there with them.
JD: In one of your first years in the league, the Colts were in the AFC Championship against the Steelers. What did you think of that game where Harbaugh through that Hail Mary pass?
KD: I was standing there watching on the sidelines on the play. We came so close and the ball kind of rolled around. We very close to the Super Bowl. It looked like Aaron Bailey had it, but unfortunately he didn’t catch it.
JD: Which teams do you think will be in the Super Bowl?
KD: I think the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers will be in the Super Bowl and the Steelers win.
I appreciate Ken for taking the time to have this interview with me. He is a great person. And for more information about the program Dilger has teamed up with, which is the Procter and Gamble Take it To the House Facebook photocontest. Check out the Facebook page.

As you all know, Denver Nuggets' star Carmelo Anthony has already let everyone know that he clearly wants to leave his team. It's no surprise. It's no secret. We all know that he wants to go the New York Knicks.
But it's right now not possible. The Knicks don't have the right assets. The only way they can get Anthony is if they are able to trade away Anthony Randolph for a first round draft-pick to make it work.
But what if it doesn't?
But here is the real question: Why is Anthony pushing it?
It's obvious that Anthony could just, well, wait! The Nuggets are currently 23-17 and are likely to make the playoffs if Anthony can start performing at his highest level again, as he has been showing signs of not playing as hard enough.
Going to the Nets? Nope, that deal just keeps coming up, but then going dead. Besides, why go there? The Nets won't have good odds at all of making the playoffs. And the Knicks? Well, they will barely make it. They're looking good. Coming in will ruin the chemistry.
But there is a way he can still go to his dream place.
All Anthony can do is just play with the Nuggets as hard as he can and wait for free agency to roll by. With this, Anthony can just sign with the Knicks for that three-year, $65 million deal or whatever deal it is he can sign.
Doing it now would make things worse.
The Nuggets hold the seventh seed in the standings have an 89-percent chance to make it to the post-season if they keep performing well. Anthony has weapons. He's got Chauncey Billups, J.R. Smith, Nene Hilario, and Al Harrington.
He's done well with them right now.
Why ruin it?
Here's my advice: Just do what you can right now. Do your best this season, lead the Nuggets to as far as you possibly can. The fans know you are more than likely to leave, and then, boom, you're with the Knicks.
Please Melo, you need to fix something.
And you're lacking a lot of it.
MINNESOTA -- Okay people, you may not want to take this very seriously. I can ensure you that Michael Beasley is not some crazy hoarder.
But Kevin Love did say the following tweet:
I need to twit pic Mike Beasleys locker...I'm gonna pitch to do a full episode of "Hoarders" on A & E just on that alone...its a problem
Let's hope it's not as bad as Mr. Garrison:
