Chris Paul lets us know why the Jackson brothers are learning Arabic, gives us the latest on “fired Mike Rice” and lands a too-soon Roger Ebert death joke.


This is Chris Paul from the TJMS running through the top stories in roughly sixty seconds with The Morning Minute.

Legendary movie critic Roger Ebert passed away yesterday at the age of 70.  And ironically Roger’s sitting at the Pearly Gates right now to waiting to see if he gets a thumbs up or a thumbs down.

Outrage is spreading over the news that fired Rutgers Basketball Coach Mike Rice is set to receive a $100,000 dollar bonus from last season.  If he had been fired back in November when the tape of him abusing his players first surfaced he wouldn’t get jack.  I personally say let him keep the bonus.  Look, a lot of college coaches get their players ready for the NBA, but by cursing at his players, belittling them, demeaning them, cursing them out and throwing things at them Mike Rice was getting his players ready for marriage.

According to reports Janet Jackson is set to retire from show business, convert to Islam and move to the Middle East with her new husband.  And I say you’re damn right she is.  Janet’s new husband Wissam Al Mana is a billionaire.  And if your spouse is a billionaire, you go where they go.  And word is Janet’s brothers are learning to speak Arabic so they could still beg her for money.
