BIGS TOP 3 AT 5 WEDNESDAY, MAY 21st
1. Ringing endorsements
If Oklahoma City Thunder guard Derek Fisher wants to become an NBA coach, he has some pretty good references. League MVP Kevin Durant was asked about Fisher's qualifications as a coach, saying, “He's a smart guy, smart mind. He's a great motivator, great speaker and can really relate to a lot of guys and demands that respect from everybody."
In a conversation with the New York Post, Thunder teammate Nick Collison went even further, saying "He's unique, one-of-a-kind. The only guy I ever played with who can address the team in a way as a leader. He's able to address the team more so than anybody I played with, and he backs it up on the court, too."
2. Bad medicine for Buffalo
Jon Bon Jovi is not only the front man of his own band, but he is also the face of an ownership group that wants to buy the Bills and maybe bring them to Toronto.
Flyers are being handed out in Buffalo by the "12th Man Thunder", urging all bars, bands, and DJs to not play any Bon Jovi music. So far, 28 businesses have joined in on the cause, with over 3,500 people signing a petition.
A report yesterday from NFL reporter Judy Batista said whoever buys the team has to be prepared to stay in Buffalo.
3. Range Rover
In rankings developed by concert hotels, we now know who the greatest singer of all-time is.... Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose!
In the rankings, vocal range is the criteria and Axl Rose tops them all. Mariah Carey and Prince came in 2nd and 3rd, even though they can reach higher notes that Rose.
Rose's range goes from "F1" all the way to "B flat 6".
Steven Tyler and James Brown round out the top 5.
