-I am currently going through a Metallica renaissance. Most folks know do know that I am a huge fan of theirs. In recent years I have cooled a bit on them. Nothing personal. But the last week or so (God Bless YouTube) I have somehow rekindled the fanboy in me and feel like I’m 16 and back in high school again wearing black. Ok…..that’s the most info you will get out of me from my high school years.
-As much reason as there is out there for me to absolutely detest Floyd Mayweather, I continue to cheer for him in all his matches. Guess I do appreciate greatness to most degrees.
-While I do absolutely detest the Chicago Bulls (hater in charge since 1991) this team may be the most likeable ever. Is it cause Derrick Rose isn’t present? Joakim Noah, yes even though he did attend another place I personally detest (University Of Florida) is the dude that you hate when he isn’t on your team but damn sure want him on yours. By the way…about Derrick Rose, no beef with you sitting out the entire season but you’re not doing your fanbase any favors by practicing pre-game with your teammates. Oh and about the whole “you’re not aware of people’s criticism” thing….I actually tend to believe Derrick moreso cause he doesn’t seem like the kind of cat that peruses Twitter. In fact I think all he does is play basketball and read the newspaper, in that Kendrick Perkins grump like pose.
-Have I told you lately that I think the Brooklyn Nets are pathetic. Can’t win a close out game vs. a M.A.S.H. unit at home . All the talent, lacking the heart, will and guts. My running narrative continues.
-Staying with the Nuts…I mean the Nets, PJ Carlesimo is not returning to the team next season. Quite frankly I wouldn’t want to and I feel even if Brooklyn did win their series he was already a dead man walking.
-Working on a Boston Celtics eulogy piece for this beautiful site set for release either Tuesday or Wednesday. Ok….not really a eulogy but…ok it’s a eulogy but in the most respectful way possible. Bostonians I will not disappoint you. A homage. A show of respect of such, ya dig?!
-Shout out to LeBron James on MVP award #4 (2nd w/ Miami). Anyone still want to tell me he isn’t top 10 all time conversation RIGHT NOW? James was 1 vote shy of unanimous and rumors on Twitter are circulating that Miami native Dan LeBatard was the one who voted for ***drum roll*** CARMELO ANTHONY!?!? And speaking of Melo……….
-Riddle me this: Carmelo Anthony Game 1 vs the Pacers statline: 10-28 27 pts in 38 minutes. Ok…i’ll give him a pass on the 11 rebounds though. And LeBatard really voted this dude as frontrunner for MVP? Wow. Anyway back to the series, That can’t happen again throughout this series. Indiana might have won the most important game of THIS series…Game 1 out the gate.
