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…

‘Twas the Week Before Christmas

Ho Ho Ho

Ho Ho Ho

Twas the week before Christmas so grab your salt shakers,
No NBA team was challenging Boston,
Not even Kobe and the Lakers.
All the banners are hung In the Garden with care,
In the hope Red is watching and the 18th will appear.
KG and the Truth, Perk, Rondo and Ray,
15 in a row, what a sun shiny day!

Then what to my wondering eyes should appear,
King James in the east with a bench who did more than cheer,
They picked up a point guard and I picked up a glass,
I would love for Perkins to beat Varejao’s ass.
But they’ve learned to play defense so will it all last,
Maybe bring the Celtics a challenge like one of year’s past,

Now the Lakers start is what everyone expected,
Oh they’ll win it all, with Bynum uncontested?
But just wait and see when their true colors are showing,
Their Euro players at the disco with their whistles a blowing.
So while Odom and Luke are enjoying the sun,
Toughness remains a question but no denying their run.

So there’s the top 3 and the pot still stirs,
The Magic, Mavs, Nuggets and the still mighty Spurs.
6 coaches now fired and trades yet to be working,
Only Chauncey and the Nuggnutts truly been lurking.
So if you got a ten piece now don’t be Stingy,
After all it’s christmas season, drink booze and binge!

Down the chimney he came with a leap and a bound,
But went straight to work with not even a sound.
He ate all his cookies and none went to waste…,
And as I remember he yelled out…”Kobe how’s my ass taste!”

Spread the cheer, have a beer!
