Brotherly love? Lebron’s Mom scares me but Delonte is clinically crazy, probably the right move giving him some love.

Former New York Mets clubhouse manager Charlie Samuels was indicted on charges that he criminally possessed nearly $2.3 million worth of game-used memorabilia — including signed jerseys, bats and baseballs — that belonged to the Mets organization, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown announced Wednesday.

Samuels stockpiled 507 signed and unsigned jerseys, 304 hats, 828 bats, 22 batting helmets and 10 equipment bags, Brown said. Officials recovered the collectibles at a friend’s basement in Madison, Conn.

Samuels served as the Mets’ equipment manager since 1983 and began his career with the team in 1976. He later added the title of clubhouse manager and secretary to his job description. Samuels, a 53-year-old resident of Avrerne, Queens, was suspended without pay by the team after the investigation was revealed.

Josh Smith wasn’t too happy about this. Bulls took a 3-2 series lead and are going to look to close the Hawks out as soon as possible. This has been a fun back and forth series so I’m hoping it goes 1 more.

It was the first time in 18 years that such a quirky thing happened with a full schedule. On Aug. 10, 1993, all seven NL games featured one team scoring precisely two runs, STATS LLC said.

The last time it occurred with five or more runs was July 20, 1955, when all four AL games had at least one team score exactly six, STATS LLC said.

-We had the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, it’s not for everyone but it’s hard not to enjoy an event that’s this large. I’ve been telling everyone I can that I want to own a race horse. It just seems like a fun thing to have, not into the part where they only live a few years but the racing aspect and the fun hats tempt me.

-Pacman dominated 12 out of 12 rounds against Sugar Shane Mosley and all but retired him. Had an awesome chat about boxing and combat sports with Carson’s girl friend and think that is one of the cooler things a girl can do. Well done sir. I have alot more to say about this, tune into KnoqOut MMA Radio Wed. Night at 10PM for the rest.

-The Lakers got swept and thoroughly embarassed yesterday. Odom and Bynum were both ejected. The Lakers had ZERO answer for the Mavericks offense and showed next to nothing offensively. Phil Jackson is gone and now a lockout is looming, we’ll see where they go from here.
