In this very space yesterday, I roundly mocked Austinist’s assertion that those attending last night’s Austin Toros / Albuquerque T-Birds game would be graced with the prescence of F Marcus Fizer.

Fizer, signed by Seattle to a 10 day contract earlier in the month, was cut by the Sonics over the weekend after receving a big fat “DNP” in all 6 games on their roster.

As it turns out, Fizer returned to the Toros just prior to tip-off yesterday…in time to score an NBDL season-high 44 points in Austin’s 102-96 victory, snapping a 6 game losing streak.

The folks at Austinist have my most humble apologies. As do Marcus Fizer, Tim Floyd, Uncle Floyd and Floyd Camembert.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s Steve Aschburner notes the following case of Marko-on-Mark crime.

Marko Jaric is one of six NBA players featured in a fashion pictorial in the current issue of ESPN The Magazine. In a block of copy next to his photo, Jaric allegedly takes a shot at teammate (and renowned casual dresser) Mark Madsen: “There’s nothing stylish about him.”

Jaric claimed Tuesday he said nothing of the sort, and apologized to Madsen. Madsen laughed it off.

Seems to me Marko had it right the first time.
