Mo Money, No Problems
Alright folks, the world of sports is not all steroids and lies. The arguments over the juiced up era has been going on all week and it’s time we throw a positive spin onto this page. Let’s steer away from baseball and see what’s going on in the world of hoops.
The NBA all-star game is coming up this weekend and you know that means! Time to watch a bunch of superstars not play defense and fight to dunk more often than the other. TNT has gathered Kevin Durant, OJ Mayo and Joe Johnson to play a game of H-O-R-S-E. This has potential to be at least interesting when players start missing shots and getting letters like H-O. (This just in, they have actually sold the game of horse to a sponsor. It will now be the game of G-E-I-C-O. That’s G-E-I! And I’ve just lost all interest.) You’re basically combining the slam dunk competition with a shooting challenge full of creativity. I’ll predict a Joe Johnson victory.
Mo Williams has finally found a spot on the all-star team thanks to another injured player (Chris Bosh) bailing out. Mo’s teammates have been barking and preaching that their guy has the stats and deserves the respect to make the team. Gilbert even used words like ‘preposterageous’ to describe the snub. And you’re worried about our kids learning about steroids? Let’s just steer away from NBA players as role models for spelling. Don’t worry Lebron, Stern got your boy in.
Big Al Jefferson is out for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee. Sad news for such a young player having an amazing season. This season he averaged 23.1 pts, 10.9 rebounds and 30 double doubles. Wolves are only getting younger.
Elton Brand needs 6-months after his surgery on his right shoulder to be healthy and able to play. He signed a 5-year, 80 million dollar contract with the Sixers and played 29 games. Need I say more?
The Lakers have traded Vladimir Radmanovic to the Bobcats for Adam Morrison and Shannon Brown. Michael Jordan also had this to say about his moves in the past: “I think we’ve grown from it. I’ve grown from it and hopefully down the road when you make a choice, you try to make a better choice,” Jordan drafted Morrison and said that sometimes it’s a gamble. Sometimes players don’t pan out as expected. Leave it to Jordan to take a gamble on the Morrison mustache ride!
