Karma is a B**** for OJ Simpson

Thirteen years after the most controversial court case in the United States, OJ Simpson was sentenced to a possible 33 years in prison for robbing sports memorabilia. This takes me back to the subject, “Karma is a B**** for OJ Simpson” because though OJ deserves the sentence for his previous actions, his recent crime shouldn’t amount to such jail time.

I by no means am an OJ Simpson “stan”, or fan to say the least. I was a mere middle schooler when he drove off in his White Bronco across Los Angeles. However, I do think his sentence was decided on an emotional level. If anyone else had committed the same crime, his or her sentence would not have amounted to a possible 33 years in prison or at least 9 years with potential parole leave after.

OJ Simpson was hit with the karma stick and as much as his lawyers try to appeal the case, it ain’t happening. Do I feel OJ deserves the lengthy sentence? YES – But strictly emotionally and taking into consideration everything that happened with the Goldman’s. Do I think that’s the sentence he should have received? NO – Because the court of law operates on facts not dwindling emotions. I’ve heard of cats who’ve committed worse crimes and gotten a lesser sentence than one time Heisman trophy winner OJ Simpson.

So what am I saying if I feel he deserves the sentence and think he doesn’t…? I’m saying this sentence was sort of a “catch 22” and according to laws that work on case by case scenarios, his sentence was wrongfully decided. For this particular crime, his sentence should have been less.

Knicks Lead the NBA

It’s no surprise that the New York Knickerbockers, also known to the un-savvy as the Knicks, have been crowned the most valuable team in the NBA for the fourth straight year. The Knicks are worth $613 million, close to $35 million above its second place followers, The Los Angeles Lakers. Both teams are a given to me solely because of their history and demographic market size.

However two teams that showed the most value change are the Portland Trail Blazers, worth $307 million and the defending champs, the Boston Celtics, worth $447 million. You would think that with Paul Allen as your owner, you’d have a higher net worth. I guess Oden is making a bigger impact than Allen ever will. And what about the Celtics? With so many rings that you need four hands to put them all on, the Celtics have fallen to the likes of the Cavs, who rank fifth and are worth $477 million.

Any guesses who third and fourth are?
