Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown: Thursday, December 17, 2009 (4:00-7:00)

Host: Bob McCown
Guests: Jim Kelley, Chris Bosh, member of the Toronto Raptors, Don Banks, Ed Olczyk, Don Loding.

Awesome to hear Kelley on the radio again. I wasn't his biggest fan, but when someone is going through a struggle, you certainly want to see them come out on top.

In the interest of full disclosure here at PTSR, we did publish the news that Kelley has cancer on our blog directly from William Houston's blog. We also did ask PTS themselves if it was true, to which they said no comment. We were unaware that this had not be "authorized" by Kelley and apologize to him and want him to know that we will not be publishing any stories from William Houston's blog in the immediate future.

Here's a message targeted towards William Houston who (as Kelley pointed out in the show), published the Kelley report of having cancer without Kelley's knowledge:
"As Kelley pointed out on Prime Time Sports last week, William, you are a slime bucket for publishing this without even calling Kelley first to see if it was okay to publish.

Even the dirtiest of journalists will call their subject to give them a heads up first before publishing something so personal. Kelley reports the news, he isn't the news itself. Even if he were, this is a show of disrespect for anyone, let alone someone of Kelley's stature.

Shame on you William. I hope you will call Jim to apologize and publish it here."

What's the big deal about Bosh getting a tattoo? Isn't he the last player in the NBA not to get tatt'd up?? Don't understand what the news is all about (let alone making a DVD about it.) Slow news day in Toronto, I guess?

  1. I am also extremely surprised that William Houston would have published this without first clearing it with Jim himself. Not to mention that how does he even know if it is true or not, and if so, to what extent.

    To date, I have always enjoyed reading William Houston's pieces, and will continue to do so. At the same time, I have now lost some respect for him and am more disappointed than anything.
