Cole to Lebron! Where Amazing Happens!

That play was amazing!

Cole to Lebron on that fast break!

And look at Lebron spin his way to some more points!

Good job to the Lakers for giving it their all (for the first 3 quarters like they always do).

I don’t know what it is but I swear some witch years back cursed the Lakers so that any lead that they had would completely dissolve in the 4th quarter.

You Lakers fans know what I’m talking about.

The Heat had some nice Sunday jerseys on as well. Good game Heat and congrats Lebron for 5 straight games with 30+ points!

Why did you have to leave us?

So I was like, “Why are the Charlotte Bobcats doing so well?”

Answer? Two words.

Ramon Sessions.

And what are with all the jersey changes this year?

Just because the end of the world is coming this year DOESN’T MEAN that we can just let go of our understanding of stylishness and fashion.

Really? All it says is just “CATS”?

What, are they all going to come out and preform a number from the musical cats? Can you imagine Ramon Sessions and Brendan Haywood singing Allegorical Cats? Really guys? It’s gotten just plain silly now. The Lakers might as well have a big lake on their jerseys if this is how we’re looking at things now.

The Lakers should have kept Ramon Sessions…we’d be doing a lot better than we are now. That’s for sure.

But I’m happy that he is at least on a winning team. He at least deserves that much.

6 more days…

So hopefully this won’t affect today’s game against the Wolves but rumor is that Pau has already been traded.

With who?

No one’s quite sure at this point. Don’t want another Chris Paul situation on our hands now do we?

There’s a lot of talk about the Wolves wanting Pau and the same with the Rockets but until they release something official it’s still anyone’s game. I mean we all thought Wallace was on the Lakers too but that didn’t pan out too well.

6 more days until the deadline.

Are the Lakers going to get Derrick Williams? Josh Smith? Someone from the Rockets? Who knows.

What I DO know is we can’t trade for nothing again. That’s for sure.

I’m going to miss you Pau! Thank God we got you instead of Marc.

Updates

Love and Barea are out, Pekovic is in. 

We got this!

And NO Pau will NOT be wearing a Wolves jersey tonight.

Love = Back Spasms

Barea = Sprained Ankle

My obsession with LeBron James

I probably own more Lebron related sports wear than any other person. Coming from a life long Lakers fan that has to be weird right?

2 Cavaliers Playoff T-shirts
(1 of which I’ve cut up and made into a dress)

2 All Star Jerseys

2 All Star Tshirts

I asked my manager to pick up a Lebron jersey for me while he was in Miami but he said they were all sold out. Sadness.

I just bought:

And

How could I resist? And they were both so cheap! AHH!

You should see some of the looks people give me. First, they check me out. And then after they’ve raped me with their eyes they begin to shake their heads in disapproval over my jersey. Jerks.

I will miss you LA. You and all your weirdos.

But like I say every blog entry, it would be a waste of an entry if someone couldn’t take away at least something from reading this so here it goes:

The Definition of “To Pull a LeBron” by Ayumi 

“To pull a Lebron” can be defined in one of three ways.


1. The act of a Star Player or Talent asking to be traded to a more capable team or group that already possess the necessary skills and team players needed in order to achieve the highest amount of success within that field. 


2. The act of a Star Player or Talent actively looking on one’s own, despite the wishes of management,  for a team that can offer him the best possibility of success because the current managers and owners have failed in the past and still continue to fail to build a dream team around their star player. It is very similar to the first definition but it differs in that the management has no say in the actions of the star player, this is usually because at this point in time the talent has become what is known as a free agent.


3. It can also be defined as the incessant nagging and hopscotching around the benefit of the team in order to focus more on one’s self and one’s own life goals. This is partly due to young age and the want for instant gratification. 

Example: Dwight Howard needs to stop pulling a LeBron and just win one by himself.

I STILL LOVE YOU LEBRON! ❤ Hahaha. Ah~ All meant in good fun you guys.

NBA MADNESS! Who to watch?! All Star Snubs? Up and Coming Stars? Teams with Injured Players?

But before I do anything else. Congrats Shaq! They’re finally retiring your jersey! We miss you in LA and I wish you could’ve played out the remainder of your NBA years here with us. The Lakers aren’t the same without you! It is refreshing seeing you on ESPN though, asking the questions that you do. Haha. Thanks for calling Kevin Love out, yes he is not #1. Rather than use a regular picture of Shaq who can forget his role in KAZAAM! Those of you who missed it, man, back in the day NBA players were in movies all the time! Hahaha. Great times…just priceless.

Who would your NBA 2012 All Star Western Center pick be?

Yes I am a Laker fan for life but is it just me who thinks we could have chosen someone else besides Bynum? I mean I know Al Jefferson hasn’t been having the BEST season exactly. But I guess a lot of the good centers are all on the Eastern side. The Gasol brothers? LaMarcus Aldridge? Maybe? If anyone has any comments on that I’d like to hear.

While we’re on the topic of NBA All Star Starters, Mark thought they could have chosen a better small forward for the East but I actually think Carmelo deserved the spot, to be honest. IT IS NOT HIS FAULT THE KNICKS SUCK THIS YEAR AND THAT THE NUGGETS ARE BETTER. (*Mark you do not know what you are talking about*) Anyways, if it weren’t Carmelo I guess it’d have to be Paul Pierce or Danny Granger. Don’t you think? C’mon. Who doesn’t like Carmelo Anthony? Haha. I guess we’ll see what happens when they announce the reserve players for this year. Hopefully they’ll do it soon since the games are about 2 or so weeks ago.

And since I said I would do it, here it comes.

Critique of the 2012 NBA All Star Jerseys

Is it just me or does it look like those jerseys should be part of a Dentyne Ice Commercial? Where Lebron and Kobe are fighting bad breath and their jerseys are all dirty and worn out and with just one piece of Dentyne Ice both of them go flying through the air only to have monstrous Slam Dunks and right when the ball hits the rim their jerseys break out in crystallization like they’re both heating up and cooling down at the same time. Product Placement! That’s how I think they look anyways. Where do I start on the font? It’s like we’re all watching star tours at Disneyland and the letters just spread through centuries and galaxies, up down side to side. Not to mention the stars do the same thing. What is up with that by the way? Fact: Stars do not look cooler at an angle. And what is up with the design inside the numbers? Do we really need to see NBA home court tiling in the middle of the numbers? Someone just thought a wood plank design in natural wood and silver was just so magical apparently. AND WHY DO THEY ALWAYS DO THE THING WHERE THE PLAYERS NAMES AREN’T EVEN IN THE SAME FONT?! What is the point of that? Too lazy? I mean you knew which name was going with which number when you manufactured it. Are people not going to be able to read slanted futuristic font when it comes to the player name? Or is spending that extra 2 minutes putting ‘Durant’ into a computer generated font maker WAY too hard for some people. It must be that same intern that designed that Miami Jersey I was talking about yesterday.

Then what IS the best NBA All Star Jersey design? Well thanks for asking. I’d say 2009 was my favorite.

Granted it’s not PERFECT but it’s better than the stuff they’ll be wearing this year. It’s clean, simple and memorable. I’m divided on how I feel about the flame stars on the pants but overall it is what the NBA All Star Jersey should be like.  Not sure why they used a slight variation from the font for EAST and WEST but who knows. I bet there’s just one MUST that has to be on all All Star jerseys and it’s that futuristic font they use. Do the designers that people will stop buying them if they stop using a certain type of font? Or that it instills memories and a certain type of feeling within people? *shrug* One thing that I CAN agree on is that I’m glad we’re past this:

Do you remember these? 2005/2006 All Star Jerseys…I’m just glad we’ve come so far since then. Haha.

Have a different favorite year? I could go over the pros and cons of every year but I think that’d be too much. I don’t know if I want to dish out $60+ for a jersey that I don’t think is designed well. The price you pay to be a fan right? I guess that was my little rant for now.

“You can’t just put HE MAN in TRANSFORMER’S world. All right?

He wouldn’t be able to get to Cybertron because he lives in Eternia and Eternia is in an entirely different dimension!” -Stewie from Family Guy

Anyways, I just thought I’d throw that in there because what better way to start any speech or essay than with a historic quote! Yeah…I thought it was pretty awesome too. It really speaks to me, you know? Stewie is stopping Brian’s second imagination from coming into play to achieve a whole new level of thought processes and ideas. Stewie is stuck in a paradox in which he envisions the creation of activities and events within the Transformer world but by being so focused on technicalities he is unable to expand beyond what SHOULD be into further exploring the possibilities of what COULD be. Who is Stewie to say that He Man could not learn how to fly or indeed, as Brian puts it, get on a rocket to visit his fellow crime fighting heroes in a new and unexplored part of the dimension? Maybe this new wave of thinking initiated by Brian’s want to be included can lead to the deconstruction of what makes up a super hero in order to rebuild an even greater protagonist that is able to span several aspects of both time and space in relation to their surroundings. By not involving Brian in this children’s activity meant to spurt creativity and mental awareness, Stewie has not only stunted his own potential growth but also the potential growth that could have developed through such interactions.

Am I being serious? Who knows…Maybe this should blog should be called the “Ramblings of an English Major” but then I don’t think anyone would read it. *shrug*

Anyways, my mother had her friends over last night and no it was not to watch the Super Bowl. Although that would have been really cool if they WERE here to watch it. But I don’t know if any of the TVs in the house work too well. I haven’t watched TV in forever! But, getting back to the point, one of her friends brought some cookies for me! They’re actually pretty good. And who couldn’t love cookies tied in Lakers colors. Ugh Lakers…I’ll talk about that later…

Actually, I’m going to talk about it now. I even wore my “Boston Sucks” shirt today…but I guess it wasn’t enough to help them…

Mike Brown got suspended for a game for his little fiasco during the Jazz game, maybe that will makes things better. We can only hope right? I knew it was going to be a good game when I saw they’d be playing the 76ers but I didn’t want them to lose… I had class when the game was on so I had to keep up with the play by plays that I could get on my phone. They were so close the entire game. The whole time I was on it they were only 1-3 points apart. The game stats aren’t even that impressive. This has to be one of Iguodala’s lower scoring games AND WE STILL LOST. But in all fairness it was a low scoring game in general for everyone. Ugh…There were some other good games tonight. Knicks beat the Jazz and the Clippers had a very close game with the Magic but ended up coming ahead by 5 points. The Thunder vs Trailblazers game has been pretty intense too. It’s still anyone’s game. But you have my support KD! You can do this! But KD come on…FGM-A 9-17 is not okay. We’ll see how it ends up panning out later on. And before I move on to another topic…what was with the Heat’s jersey last night?

Do we really need 5 colors on a jersey? Let alone an asymmetrical design? AND they’re selling them on NBA.com. Here’s what the stock photo looks like:

Can you say ‘EW’?

1. The number and writing on the front and back are off center.

2. The colors include: Red, Black, White, Pink and Orange. It’s like a defective unicorn threw up on a blank sports jersey. What do the last two colors have to do with the heat? Degrees of colors leading up to how hot a flame gets? Makes for a dramatic picture that’s for sure.

3. Pink really? Good luck trying to sell these to your target market.

4. What is with the font on the front? I know teams can pick or choose when they want to put the city name and the team’s name but this looks like something out of Ken’s Spring Catalogue while he shops for clothes while Barbie is out being an independent woman.

5. Is it just me or did Adidas purposely make it look sort of like a soccer jersey? Can someone say Product Placement?

6. What happened to simplicity? Whoever designed this jersey has either been transferred over from another sports department or the recession along with the lockout has really been hitting both Adidas and the NBA so hard that they’ve outsourced their work to interns who are forced to scribble jersey ideas in between coffee runs for the rest of the office. (*Intern idea thanks to Mark, credit where credit is due*)

Oh well. I can just buy an All Star Jersey (which also lacks any new creative ingenuity) but I guess some things really can’t be helped. I’ll complain about it another time I guess. OH BUT those new Black on Black jerseys that have been coming out are pretty sweet. I’ll write my review about them next time. Don’t want to overload anyone with too much new sensory information.

And before I forget, Amare’s brother was killed in a car accident this morning so keep him in your thoughts? I guess it’s good the Knicks won a game today then right?

Moving onto a new topic, I ordered all my transcripts so I can transfer school starting next fall. Everything seemed to work out smooth so hopefully it will just stay that way. Yay for being productive! We also did some explication work in class today. There were some pretty good lines from Richard III to be honest. The class helped a lot because I have an explication due tomorrow on Madame Bovary. It’ll be a piece of cake though. My other class went well too. I ended up getting an A on the paper I had written on Plato and Aristotle which I’m happy about and I managed to pay attention in class while checking NBA score updates on my phone. Yay for multitasking!

But enough about school…it’s car time! My bestest buddy Jack and I always swap pictures of cars that we see throughout the day and guess what he sent me today? It has to be only my 3rd favorite car at this point in time…that’s right! You guessed it! A Volvo 1800S! (Actually my favorite is a Volvo p1800 but it’s close enough). And it’s from 1967 too…*drool*

God look at it! It’s in PRISTINE condition too! This is BY FAR the only cool car Volvo has ever made or will ever make. The person who owns this car has obviously taken care of it like it’s their own kid. Makes me so happy to see vintage cars in top shape. It gives me hope! We’re not dying out…soon you can see me in one of these. True I’ll have to get used to the 4 cylinder engine and the manual transmission but it’s all worth it for a beauty like this one.

What did Roger Moore drive on “The Saint” before he ever became James Bond? One of these bad boys, that’s right. In the TV Series he was seen sporting this bad ass baby. Forget about the Aston Martin DB5, it’s all about the 1800S! (*And again photo credits to Jack, I’m going to miss you!!*)

And while I’m on the subject, Jack, I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip! If you see any strange and/or exotic cars you know that I expect pictures when you get back! Don’t die!! I won’t miss the Vegan food but I sure as hell will miss you! And our amazing conversations about the aesthetic values of cars. Have fun!!

Now that I have spent a substantial part of my night writing and completing this blog entry, I think it’s time for me to actually attend to things that desperately need my attention. Bye until next time!
