NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Nets general manager Billy King has reportedly followed through on his plans to reach out to Phil Jackson to measure the 67-year-old’s interest in Brooklyn’s coaching vacancy.
The Nets previously eyed the coaching legend in December after firing Avery Johnson. On Sunday, King said he’d contact Jackson when announcing the team would not retain interim coach P.J. Carlesimo.
The retired Jackson, who may be more interested in a front-office position in the NBA, “is so far the only candidate officially contacted in the Nets’ search,” the Daily News reported.
Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw and former Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy could enter the mix, though both have been tight-lipped about the possibility. That wasn’t the case for Jerry Sloan, who told Comcast Sports Net Northwest that he “would definitely listen” if the Nets called.
Sloan and Nets point guard Deron Williams had a…

Robert Plant recently obtained a temporary restraining order against a fan, and for good reason — I haven’t seen messages this creepy since I told my mom she couldn’t chaperone me on dates anymore.
The fan, named Alysson Billings, has spent the last three years sending Robert gifts, showing up at his shows and leaving him messages that have just recently crossed a new threshold of weird. According to TMZ, the newest messages are inspired by the fact that Robert has a new girlfriend.

Finding words from the dictionary is not FUN, but making up words is. The very title of this text is a made up of 2 words. And believe me you don’t need to be somebody with a brain and even if you are,then you don’t need to use it.Just write down 2 words at a distance (according to your convenience) and just fuse them with each other ,like say,great +awesome=GRAWESOME and if you are a beginner then just try and understand the basic concepts of slang like, do+not=don’t,and once you think you are ready to create just grab a paper and a pen and start by following some stupid steps-
- The words that you write should be practical,not like some nursery words
- Once you start getting ideas just pen them down.
AND JUST CREATE SOME STUPID NERDS!!
Report Finds Afghan Military Shrinking Not Growing
A U.S. government watchdog overseeing the Afghanistan reconstruction found the U.S. led effort to recruit, train and field the Afghan National Security Forces is about 20,000 troops below its stated goal of 352,000.
The U.S. led coalition force failed to meet the goal of 352,000 ANSF personnel by October 2012, although the Defense Department reported that it reached the goal of recruiting 352,000 ANSF personnel. These personnel are spread across the Afghan National Army, Afghan National Police, and the Afghan Air Force.
In fact, the ANSF end strength is shrinking, not growing. The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction found that the number of personnel shrunk by about 4,000 troops and policemen between March 2012 and February 2013.
Inspectors noted how the U.S. led coalition has continually moved the date in which it…

Kitten burned in Philly recovering at Hunterdon County vet
NJ.com: The one-pound kitten was found, burning, at a Philadelphia intersection last Thursday. A quick-thinking Samaritan took off a coat, and smothered the flames, saving the burning 5-week-old animal’s life.
Six days later, the kitten – now named Justin – is getting delicate medical attention, and he’s expected to mostly recover from the second- and third-degree burns on his back and head.
The tiny kitten is eating and sleeping, and undergoing a regimen of antibiotics, wound dressings, and appetite stimulants at the Crown Veterinary Specialists in Lebanon, said Anne Trinkle, the executive director of Animal Alliance.
“He’s doing remarkably well – but he’s not out of the woods yet,” said Trinkle, of Animal Alliance, a Lambertville-based animal-welfare non-profit, which got the cat the care he needed.
Most of Justin’s ears will have to be removed, and badly-burned splotches on…

” The Pentagon has beefed up its biggest “bunker buster” bomb so it can destroy Iran’s most heavily armed and protected nuclear site, U.S. officials said.
The administration believes the enhanced Massive Ordnance Penetrator, the Pentagon’s largest conventional bomb, will decrease the chances Israel will launch a unilateral bombing campaign against Iran, at least for this year and maybe next year too, the officials told The Wall Street Journal.”
” The upgraded MOP, a precision-guided, 30,000-pound behemoth, is designed to destroy Iran’s deep-underground Fordo uranium-enrichment plant south of Tehran, near the holy city of Qom. “
