Florio: No rift among Jets staff, all wanted Tebow

So now we know Tim Tebow is going to the New York Jets. We didn't know that with certainty this morning, but Mike Florio knew that the Jets were very interested.

"In New York with the Jets, in the biggest media market in the world, where he won't be the starter, but he'd play a decent amount -- who knows what'll happen down the road if Mark Sanchez can't get it together," Florio said on the Dan Patrick Show.

"Everybody, the front office, the coaching staff, they're all on board. There's no rift. There's no split of opinion. They all want him. Maybe he's at the point now where he wants to go somewhere where the organization wants him."

The video above also has what is maybe the best Tebow-to-the-Jets joke to date.

Ever picture how Tebow and cornerback Antonio Cormartie will get along? Florio had already envisioned their first little chat. Speaking as Tebow, he had the whole DP Show crew cackling.

"I know the Bible says be fruitful and multiply, but Antonio, you gotta put the brakes on."

Draymond Green tells Paul Pierce he doesn't get a farewell tour; Pierce says Warrior blew a 3-1 lead

Draymond Green tells Paul Pierce he doesn't get a farewell tour; Pierce says Warrior blew a 3-1 lead

Draymond Green isn’t exactly known as being the most respectful competitor, so perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he spent the early minutes of last night’s game against the Clippers telling Paul Pierce he isn’t a legend. 

Pierce, who will retire at the end of the season, was not in the game at the time, but Green called to him from the court, telling him nobody would give him a farewell tour. 

“Chasing that farewell tour. They don’t love you like that,” Green said. “You can’t get that farewell tour. They don’t love you like that.” 

Green then said something else that was tough to hear through the broadcast before adding, “You thought you was Kobe?”

After the game, Pierce responded on Twitter, going to the easiest and most obvious insult available. As Chris Rock once said, “If I’m driving, and someone crashes into me with one leg, I’m gonna talk about the leg.”
