Lebron could pass Michael Jordan in career playoff scoring tonight. But that, among other things, will not pull coach Lue's focus away from the Celtics. We also get back into Tom Brady concussion talk.

Bill Simmons expressed interest in the vacant Bucks general manager job in 2008, writing he could take over an NBA team. With the Bucks once again searching for a GM after dismissing John Hammond, Simmons is making his pitch again.

Except this time, it seems like it’s fallen on deaf ears.

The “Book of Basketball” author tweeted Wednesday at the owner’s daughter, Mallory Edens. She didn’t seem impressed.

Ouch. Shockingly, maybe Simmons’ idea of trading Giannis Antetokounmpo to the Celtics for Jae Crowder and cash isn’t the direction Milwaukee wants to go in.

LaVar Ball caught a lot of flak last week for his apparent sexist remarks to a female reporter. Now he’s trying to make a buck off of them.

The patriarch of the Ball family got into a heated debate with FS1 host and former WEEI.com contributor Kristine Leahy, who asked him how many pairs he’s sold of his Big Baller Brand shoes, which cost $495. In response, Ball told Leahy to “stay in yo lane.” He also said he doesn’t want to market to females, because Big Baller Brand “isn’t for women.”

“I don’t look over there because she scares me. Leave me alone,” he exclaimed.

On Twitter Wednesday, Ball announced he was selling “Stay in Yo Lane” t-shirts. They sell for $50, whereas the shirts and tank-tops with gold lettering are priced at $60.

While Ball often comes across as a bombastic nincompoop, this is a business savvy decision. Unvarnished machismo appeals to a large swath of consumers. It only makes sense for Big Baller Brand to corner the market, given who’s in charge of the company.

David Price might drive one of the most expensive cars in the Major Leagues.  (Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports)

When David Price sped away from McCoy Stadium Wednesday in order to avoid the media following an atrocious rehab start, he didn’t do it discretely. The left-handed hurler raced through the parking lot in a tank-like vehicle, turning heads along the way.

The truck in question hit the market in 2014, debuting at the Beijing Auto Show. Manufactured by U.S. Speciality Vehicles of Chino, Calif., the Rhino GX is modeled after the Ford 350 or Ford 450. In overseas markets, it’s referred to as the “General Patton.”

“I hear customers say, ‘This is a man’s car. You want to be a man? Get this car,’” Tim Tang, the owner of U.S. Speciality Vehicles, told the Wall Street Journal.

The 9,000-pound urban assault vehicle costs between $194,000 and $250,000 –– a pittance for Price, who makes $30 million per season. The Los Angeles Times gave the truck a favorable review in 2016, saying it’s perfect for off-roading.

Autoweek, however, was less kind. The industry publication said nobody can “make a logical argument in favor of owning” the vehicle.

But Price may have use for it. According to Autoweek, the “General Patton” can “destroy enemies.” If Price continues to struggle on the mound, Red Sox beat writers should watch their step.
