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. 

Stop complaining Cavs, Mo Williams is an all-star...finally.

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!

West Coast respect after the Celtics lost to the Lakers and Spurs.

This week in the NBA

 

Not so Lucky!

Not so Lucky!

This week in the NBA, with so much time off and money piling up, Stephon Marbury decided to hold an online chat.  He basically explained his side of the holdout and proclaimed to the academy that he is not a selfish player.  He did support his cause saying

“I have averaged eight assists per game throughout my career.”  Good stat but he did show up late to the chat.  Not the best start to my Celtics approval interview. 

The Shaq and Kobe feud is more like a Forrest Gump and Jenny relationship.  They go together like peas and carrots!  Shaq assured us all that the media made up the whole feud and it’s just another marketing ploy.  He goes on to say “We’re still the greatest little-man, big-man 1-2 punch ever created in the history of the game.”  They reunite on the West All-star side next month. 

We now bring you the best excuse to be snubbed for the all-star team.  This week’s winner is Carmelo Anthony.  Melo was a little upset he got overlooked and said the injury had to be the key for not being selected.  He says “I didn’t think I did nothing wrong,”, “My game didn’t do nothing wrong. That’s the only thing that could have (hurt Anthony, is his injury).”  This isn’t a DUI questioning Carmelo; the media always asks questions after games.  Melo did deserve to be named to the West all-star team, just didn’t like his defense. 

Andrew Bynum will not face a suspension by the league for his hit on Gerald Wallace.  Wallace suffered a collapsed lung after the Bynum forearm shiver.  Bynum says “I’m sending flowers to his hospital room.”  Bynum has stepped up his game this past month; he is also looking to represent the Lakers in Wrestlemania 25.  Kendrick Perkins hacked Maxiell last night so I can’t even make my Lakers are dirty case.  Instead, I’ll just move along…next topic!

Did someone say we’re going streaking?  Yes it’s true, the Celtics have got the mojo going again and have won 10 straight.  With the bench boys, House and Big Baby stepping it up, they’ve really showcased their toughness and 3-point shooting. They did snub Rondo and Ray Allen from the all-star game and now they’re pissed.  Cavaliers are 22-0 at home this season.  Holy Mo Williams!  This guy scares me and with big Z back in action, the Cavs look tough.  Should definitely be a fun second half of the season. 

Farewell Lucky the mascot, he got fired (sweet justice). Can we hire MC Hammer now?  Think of the possibilities!  My my my my music…
