But with Jessica Simpson's ex on tour, Blake had to make do Tuesday night with a crowd that included Kevin Garnett, Baron Davis, Serena Williams and U.S. women's soccer team defender Heather Mitts, a.k.a. ESPN.com's "Hottest Female Athlete" of 2004….

Stephen Litel has introduced a "Minnesota Basketball Talk" community at his site.
From Paul Ladewski/Courier News:
Veteran forward Joe Smith had only one regret about his decision to sign with the Bulls as a free agent.
