I am so disappointed in the Thunder…

and actually surprised that the Spurs have managed to keep their shit together throughout the playoffs this year.

I don’t really have anything against the Spurs, I actually like them a lot as a team but after losing a few bets on some bad playoff series that included the Spurs I’ve stopped putting too much faith in them. Guess I was wrong about that this year huh?

I just don’t know what is going on with the Thunder. They need to mix things up and step up their defensive game to match the level at which the Spurs are playing at this year.

The Spurs only had a better shooting percentage when it came to Field Goals but they were able to work together as a team to win Game 2 at home. 5 players scored in the double digits and Tony Parker had the most points today with 34.

Not really happy with that Ibaka/Jackson Technical shit that was going on.

I’m really happy that the Thunder were able to shorten the Spurs 22 point lead but it wasn’t enough. Maybe with Perkins on the floor things might have been different?

I really hope the Thunder bring their A game from here on out. I know they’ve been working hard but coach needs to change things up if he wants to see a change in his team.

I believe in you Thunder! Don’t let me down!

The Clips travel their way to another bullshit play

It’s not even halftime yet and the Clippers have been traveling the shit out of this game and most of them have been getting away with it too, which I say is total bull honkey!

Chris Paul took 3 whole steps before he passed that ball to Bitch Griffin and not only did they fail to call the travel but they counted the basket that Griffin made after such an illegal pass.

Total horse shit!

The Grizzlies still got this though! I believe in you guys!

Lakers & Lebron post coming up soon!

RIP Carroll Shelby

One of America’s most famous car racers and designers passed away today at age 89.

You may have never heard of Carroll Shelby but I am more than certain that you have ogled some of the cars that he has designed because I know that I have. Shelby has been a trailblazer in the world of both automotive ingenuity and the culture that still surrounds racing today. How crazy is it to think that this man helped engineer a racing machine that would beat Enzo Ferrari’s mad racing streak.

This man was not only an automotive super hero but he was also a beacon of hope to those who needed a role model. Having a rough childhood riddled with sickness and again battling with illness and severe injuries from racing accidents Shelby has battled his way through on to the next project and he has been a key part of design even up till his death. But what made Shelby a true hero was that he even founded his own foundation in order to aid children who were in need of organ transplants. This was a man who gave back to his community and never forgot his roots as the son of a rural mail carrier.

The only thing I think people get confused on is what company Shelby designed cars for. For the younger generation they would most remember him for the Ford Mustang Shelby pictured below:

but Shelby was most popularly known for his AC (Auto Carriers) Motors based Shelby American Cobra:

and then after beating Enzo Ferrari at Le Mans in 1959, Henry Ford II eventually recruited him in hopes to build a car that would beat out Ferrari at future Le Mans competitions and Ford hired the right man. The Ford group had 4 consecutive Le Mans wins from 1966 through 1969 thanks to Shelby.

and most of you may have already forgotten or may have never made the connection in the first place but Carroll Shelby was also responsible for the Dodge Shelbys/ Shelby Dodges.

Why’d he start working with Dodge? because Lee Iacocca asked him to. Iacocca was responsible for getting Shelby to Ford so this time he had him work as a “Performance Consultant” on the Dodge Viper but he ended up helping to design and change previous designs for the new Dodges.

And Shelby didn’t stop here. Although there were a lot of ups and downs attached with it, he had also managed to take his original designs from paper to finished product to create the Shelby Series 1. But to keep a long story short his company (Shelby American) was bought up, then that company (Venture Corporation) went bankrupt but not because of their Shelby purchase and Shelby ended up buying his stock back for pennies on the dollar but his Vehicle Safety Standards certificate had expired so he sold his car without a motor or transmission as a “component car” but people still bought them and made their own Series 1 Shelbys at home.

Makes me just want to up and be a car designer! I WISH!

You will be missed and remembered. For every engine rev and street race won I know that you have contributed a big part of the ever growing love and passion of cars  in every true red blooded American and we will not forget it.

(Forgive the run on sentence).

Blake Griffin made all 4 of his free throws? I call bullshit!

Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.

Know why?

Because the Grizzlies owned this shit today! It’s not over bitches!

I was a little pissed when they put a “Clippers vs Spurs” game time on during the halftime but you better make that “Grizzlies vs Spurs” bitches!

Bring it on!

Game 7 in MEMPHIS!

But seriously, Blake Griffin made all of his free throws. What are the fuckin odds of that happening?

12%. TWELVE FUCKING PERCENT.

Zach Randolph made 16 rebounds today and Marc had the most points with 23. The Grizzlies had an overall better shooting percentage except for the free throws because towards the end the Grizzlies missed a lot of their free throws. But what’s surprising to me is that the Grizzlies had a total of 22 turnovers in comparison to the Clippers 9 but they still managed to kick some serious Clipper ass.

But boy was this game tense. Tied 6 times and 9 lead changes. But I believe the Grizzlies will be able to deliver the finishing blow to knock down the Clippers from the ranks.

Best day ever.

He’s on Fire! Boom Shaka Laka!

What better way to start a blog entry than with clips of Marc Gasol pulverizing Slop City’s own Bitch Griffin.

Here’s one where Marc just crushes Griffin’s foot.

And then the one everyone saw last night of Marc falling on top of Prissy Pants Griffin.

OUCH!

And watch Wade just smack the ball right out of Carmelo’s hands.

You’re not scoring on my turf BITCH!

Let’s watch that again but with Lebron and Tyson Chandler. Love those clean blocks! The Knicks didn’t even stand a chance in Hell against the Heat. Well, at least they stopped their 20 game playoff losing streak. Yay? Hahaha.

God I love playoffs season.

Rondo Fail!

I love this shot. Not only is Josh Smith about to attack the rim, it looks like he has 2 more arms coming out from his shoulders. RAWR!

And then you see Paul Pierce doing a little ballet while everyone else is playing basketball.

Hawks triumph over the Celtics for a sweet victory in Atlanta.

Man, this shit was tense!

My heart was racing in my chest when I saw Rondo go in for the steal but Smith and Horford stepped up their defense at the right moment to box out Rondo from passing to Garnett.

It was just a great job and there were some awesome plays tonight as well.

Both teams had a total of 5 players scoring double digits but the Hawks had a better scoring percentage overall.

I have to hand it to the Celtics for their 2 buzzer beaters by Garnett and Rondo.

2 out of 4 of my predictions came true so all I need to do is keep my fingers crossed for the last 2 games on tonight.

LET’S GO LAKERS!
