The King of trade bullshit rises again

Who else could I be talking about but the Master of Flip Flop, Mr. Dwight Howard himself.

Everyone is talking about how the Lakers would regret it if we didn’t trade Andrew Bynum for Dwight Howard but is this really the deal that LA has to make? Sure DH may be a tad bit better offensively Bynum is still young and only getting better year after year. The Lakers need to keep their young star players instead of risking them for older washed out players like DH.

Yes Bynum has had his own injuries and problems in the past but nothing like Howard’s recent list of injuries which could affect his rate of play from here on out. Season ending injuries for older players can be career ending as well.

And besides, wasn’t DH supposed to go play bball with his BFF Deron in Jersey? Did I miss something? Although I’m surprised Deron is thinking of staying after all the fuss he made this past season. Sorry, Brooklyn not Jersey.

I’ve been watching a lot of Bridezillas on TV and Dwight is beginning to sound a lot like those crazy bitches who need to have everything THEIR way.

There’s only one team on my list and if I don’t get traded there, I’ll play the season out and explore my free agency after that,” Howard told Yahoo! Sports.

And get this, he’s going to try to take “Legal Action” if the Magic doesn’t move him somewhere else since they “FAILED” to do what they had promised him. Who else isn’t annoyed by this big baby?

So let me get this straight. It’s a Catch-22 so try to stay with me here.

1. Dwight Howard wants to be moved and will only play for the Nets.
2. The Nets are trying to re-sign Deron Williams as well as Joe Johnson which leaves no money and no talent to offer the Magic for Howard.

I wouldn’t even trade a bag of peanuts for Dwight Howard.

And apparently the Rockets are in all the trade rumors now a days because they’re just trying to get their hands on anyone possible. But they’ve moved on from trying to get the big man since their Draft flop the other day AND they already signed Omer Asik to a 3 year contract worth $25 mil.

Why do the Lakers have to be the ones to get stuck with this dude? We don’t want his ass. I say we take another route to improve the team.

I really don’t want DH anywhere near LA unless he’s here for a pounding from my home team.

If I have to sing a song and put it on Youtube to KEEP Howard from coming to LA, I WILL DO IT! I SWEAR!

New article titles to describe DH, Dwight Howard has out-LeBroned LeBron with free-agency gaffes.” It’ll always be slang for the times but people who REALLY know what happened and KNOW how much work and effort Lebron gave to Cleveland will know that people are misguided when they use the term.

And for Pau, poor guy has just been the basis of almost every Lakers trade rumor for the past year now. If he ends up being traded I will of course be sad but maybe it’ll give him and the Lakers another opportunity at seeing a possible Championship. Up in the air is 3 possible trades for Pau (that we know about) but I’m pretty sure the one with the Hawks was already rejected. I’d LOVE to have Josh Smith on the Lakers but the Lakers still want more. And I can see both points of the situation. We’d get a great forward that’s not only an amazing defensive player but also one of the most efficient players in the NBA but we’d lose a big man which is pretty important. The Hawks, and any team that took Pau, would be left with a heavy burden of a $38 million/2 year contract which would put a pretty big dent in their hopes of scouting out other players.

Mark’s hoping for Pau to be traded to the Twolves so he can have an all white starting lineup. Hahaha. Hey, it IS Minnesota. I’d pay to see that.

We had a debate to see if he could make a Championship winning team with just white players. Maybe we should start the whole Fantasy League thing. I still haven’t decided who would be on my “non-white” team though. Apparently I only want 3 Lebrons instead of 5 according to Mark. For now, I think I’ll just stick with 1 and build on it.

Maybe when I have some more time to think about it I can do an analysis of my “DREAM TEAM”.

Bleh. That was my two cents on this whole situation. I really thought I had heard the end of this bullshit back during the regular season but I have to hear about it during the off season too? Now THAT’s bull honkey.

Love for Josh Smith & Blake Griffin’s Airball free throws!

So we had my grandfather’s wake yesterday and another service along with the burial today and it was heartbreaking for all of us. So much so that my uncle forgot about his son’s YMCA basketball playoff game that by the time I reminded him it was too late to make it home and to the game. My cousin was depressed and my uncle told me to take him somewhere so I looked at who was playing a home game tonight and since the Lakers were away playing the New Orleans Hornets (who they beat) I decided we could go watch the Clippers because they were set to play the Hawks and I love Josh Smith.

When I looked up tickets they started at $1 each…seriously $1. So I upgraded our seats and got better for $4 per person. Haha. I got to take all 4 of my cousins to the game. I only usually take Matthew because the girls never showed much interest in sports but it was nice I could share the experience with all of them today.

So we bought tickets and made our way down to the Staples Center!

Boy was today special. Who thought rooting for the Hawks and Josh Smith would get me so much shit…ESPECIALLY when I’m with 4 little kids. Hahaha. We all laughed about it though.

They had a little Call of Duty Elite commercial going on. Which made me happy. Hahaha. I thought they were going to give away a Call of Duty jeep and I got all excited!…but they didn’t. Oh well.

When they introduced the Atlanta Hawks they played Star Wars music which was hilarious. I was like THIS JUST MAKES ME LIKE THEM EVEN MORE! YEAH! I mean…I still wish Mike Bibby was on the Hawks but we can’t win EVERYTHING right?

And like in every sports event in America they have to sing the national anthem before anyone does anything serious so tonight they brought out the kids from Hollywood High to sing the anthem and do you know what? It was the BEST FUCKIN ANTHEM EVER! You know why? Because when the camera man was slowly making his way around the encircled group to get a shot of each of their angelic singing faces all you could see in the back was crotch shot after crotch shot of each of the Clipper Spirits (Cheerleaders). They’re all ugly in the face so this was the best angle he was getting of them all night! Hahaha.

Aww. I had fans hatin’ on me ALL NIGHT LONG! These B.O. ridden, band wagon jumping jerks from douche city just kept cheering in my face and getting up after each play so I did the same exact thing. Every time the Hawks made a play I’d just stick it in their fuckin faces and you know what? The Clippers missed SO MANY free throws today it was embarrassing.

Sure, Blake Griffin can dunk but he has to be one of the WORST free throw shooters out there. I have proof!

Air ball free throws

Not to mention we all know this is a frequent occurrence. We all know today wasn’t the first time. Because I have proof of that too!

The 4 boys behind me kept dissing the Hawks but they kept asking me if I could buy them a beer because they’re underaged.

Uh….yeah right. I just laughed in their face.

They were saying that the Clippers are better than the Lakers but I had to remind them that the Clippers are actually FIFTH count it, 5th (1-2-3-4-5th) in the Western Conference. AND that they’ve lost 2 games in a row. That’s right! I know my stats! What’s up bitches? Come bring it?

Told them I was a Laker fan for like and that I hated the Clippers. And of course their reply was that I hated the “NEW LA TEAM” but I pointed to the Championship flags and retired jerseys and asked them to point out which of THOSE were Clipper related? EXACTLY! THAT’S RIGHT! NONE OF THOSE ARE BITCHES!

NAME ONE PLAYER ON THE CLIPPERS FROM 5 YEARS AGO?

CAN’T DO IT HUH? BECAUSE YOU’RE JUST A BANDWAGON JUMPER LIKE EVERYONE FUCKING ELSE!

I’m a fan of basketball. I couldn’t even diss Mo Williams when he played tonight (He played amazingly by the way) because I’ve loved him EVER since he was on the Cavaliers. How can I jump teams now? One that has a racist money hungry owner who doesn’t give TWO SHITS about his fans. Yeah no thanks, I’ll stick with my Lakers.

Oh what? Did someone just BLOCK THE FUCK out of your fast break? Oh well I’m sorry…

I got to see Josh Smith, Joe Johnson, Kirk Hinrich AND TMac. I had an AWESOME day.

This one dude in front of me who was on his phone the whole time turns around and says,

“If you hate the Clippers so much, why did you PAY to see them?”

And I looked him RIGHT in the face and said,

“I paid $2 for this seat to watch Josh Smith”. 

And he didn’t turn back around the whole game.

And whenever the guys behind me would say,

“Fuck that n****, who is Josh Smith? Who is Joe Johnson?”

I’d just respond with,

“They’re still better than you. I don’t see YOU playing in the NBA”.

OH OH OH OH OH

AND the same guy was like WATCH BLAKE GRIFFIN MAKE THESE FREE THROWS! …BOTH AIRBALLS! TAKE THAT SUCKA!

The two guys in front of me were nice, true Clippers fans from way back when. We talked and he asked why I hated them and I told him I was a fan of the game and that I wasn’t a fan of how the Clippers were run and he understood. We talked sports some more and he kept saying, “This girl knows her NBA” but by the end of it they were asking for my number but I told them I was getting married. Hahaha.

Trying to date someone who hates your team? Hahahaha.

My cousins had a fun time watching me yell at EVERYBODY! The other Hawks fans were so quiet. Every once in a while they would say something but not often.

It’s okay Hawks. Still #6 in the East! And Josh Smith probably isn’t going to be traded by tomorrow but I doubt he’ll be there during the off season.

All in all a good day for a rowdy fan of basketball. FEELS GOOD!

OH And here’s my FUN FACT for the day!

The last time the Clippers beat the Hawks was Feb 7 2009. Yup. 3 years. SUCK ON THAT  CLIPPER BITCHES!

I think Dwight Howard just wants a better team

Instead of looking to move anywhere Dwight Howard just wants certain people to come to HIS team.

Hmmm…All I’ve been seeing and hearing is

Dwight Howard wants to play with (blank).

Dwight Howard scouting out (blank).

So on and so forth. Does that mean he thinks his team can get someone without him leaving?

So who does Dwight Howard want to play with? Here’s the list:

1. Monta Ellis

The Warriors will give up Monta Ellis for DH but they won’t let him go just because DH wants to play with him. And the Warriors don’t really want anyone from the Magic.

2. Steve Nash

DH wants his team to GET ON getting Steve Nash. If they do then DH will probably resign during the summer and become a free agent in 2013 when most of the other guys he wants to play with will become free as well. The only thing is, Steve Nash isn’t going anywhere. The Suns aren’t going to let him go unless he ASKS to be traded and Nash has already made it clear that he wants to play out his career as a Sun. Nash said he would understand if the Suns would want to move him around but from what I understand there’s a mutual agreement that they’re going to hang tight with each other. I guess Steve Nash will just go his career without a ring. Oh well. No skin off my back.

3. Chris Paul

Not going to happen this season. That’s for sure. The Clippers aren’t going to let go of CP3 or Griffin as of now. Plus they’d be paying up the wazoo if they even entertained the idea of getting DH. Next.

4. Andre Iguodala

Iguodala wants DH to come to the Magic, not the other way around. He’s just got to convince him to come play for the Sixers. That seems unlikely though. Next.

5. Josh Smith

They grew up together. What can you say? How long? Since pre-school, apparently they liked the same girl. Hahaha. Same AAU team as teenagers and now battling it out on the court. Cute huh? But the Celtics have been eyeing Josh Smith HARD. Even enough to give up Kevin Garnett. Who knows if that is going to happen but that’s what it’s looking like now. If the Magic really want to keep Howard maybe they can make this happen? Would the Hawks want any of the Magic Forwards? Uh….Ryan Anderson? Hedo Turkoglu? I don’t know if the Hawks would consider that though…

6. Deron Williams

The Nets are trying to trade Brook Lopez for DH so Williams will sign with them again but like all these trades, they are all so lopsided. What is Orlando going to do with JUST Brook Lopez. It seems like you’d need both of them to play. Like the whole Amare+Nash combo. Man, that was great. Those poor guys are just not the same now…nor will they ever be again! Oh Well…

And then there’s the rumor that both Williams and DH might be on the Mavs next season but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves JUST yet.

But in reality are the Magic going to get a fair trade if Howard decides to leave? Probably not. No team or player wants to leave their team without getting another star to replace them. That’s just how it is. And I don’t know how much teams are willing to give up for JUST DH.

And Williams and DH would be paid a LOT less if they were to both go to the Mavs as free agents this summer. Like I said yesterday it’s either the game or the money. If you’re in a place where you get both, you’re one lucky son of a gun. I’ll give you that much.

7. Anthony Morrow

Either the Magic are being VERY secretive about their offers to other teams or they’re stupid and haven’t made any. If DH wants new team players, you get him new team players or he’s going to be gone like Nelson’s dad in search of a pack of cigarettes.

Do you know who IS interested in Morrow? The Timberwolves. But the Nets said they’re not going to move him. The Loserwolves do need a better 3 point shooter but I guess they’re going to have to look elsewhere, just like the Magic. NEXT.

8. Stephen Jackson

In a perfect world Jackson would be playing for…no it’s not the Magic but the Nets. He wants to team up with Williams and Howard to win a championship title! Too bad neither the Nets nor the Magic want him. He’d be making $10 mil next year and that is NOT something they are in search of. Both Williams and Howard would love to play with Jackson but even though they say “Yes, Yes!” their teams say “No, No!”.

Who in the world could the Magic get to make DH happy?

I have no clue.

All Star Picks that WEREN’T selected. What happened?

So the NBA 2012 All Star Reserve Picks have been announced. Who else is surprised by not who they picked but who they DIDN’T pick?

For those of you who missed the Reserve Picks, here they are:

WEST

1. LaMarcus Aldridge (Forward)

2. Marc Gasol (Center)

3. Kevin Love (Forward – Center)

4. Steve Nash (Guard)

5. Dirk Nowitzki (Forward)

6. Tony Parker (Guard)

7. Russell Westbrook (Guard)

EAST

1. Chris Bosh (Forward)

2. Luol Deng (Forward)

3. Roy Hibbert (Center)

4. Andre Iguodala (Forward – Guard)

5. Joe Johnson (Guard)

6. Paul Pierce (Forward)

7. Deron Williams (Guard)

Just like someone said on Twitter:

“Josh smith. Call 911.You got robbed. No mask no gloves- its fingerprints- all over the place call first 48-no call Atlanta CSI- Call the FBI”

I mean what a big surprise right? Me + Ernie, Kenny, Charles and Shaq were all shocked by this. We all had him on our lists! But it seems like the same debate each time, there’s a player that should have been picked but Charles said it best when he said, “We only award winners”. People get overshadowed all the time. The same thing that happened to Josh Smith also happened to people like Jrue Holiday, Darren Collison and Danny Granger. I wouldn’t say they were outshined but when it comes down to it they pick the “winning” players. It would be awesome if they could pick the scorer and the supporter but sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. It’s like saying Derrick Rose would be nothing without Luol Deng but the same goes for these other supporting players as well. They’re who keep the team scoring and together. With the number of Defensive Rebounds Josh Smith puts out as well as being relatively high scoring, what more could you ask for? Josh is #6 in Blocks, Blocks per game and Defensive Rebounds in 48 minutes. And he’s ranked #2 in Blocks per 48 minutes only beaten out by Thunder’s Serge Ibaka (but he’s in Spain playing Real Madrid right now). He WORKED for this! Lost weight, got into shape and now he’s the best player on the Hawks. He’s what has been keeping this team afloat this season. With Al Horford gone he’s really stepped up to carry his team to where they are now. Let’s compare the stats between the Reserve Forwards that have been picked for the East. (And maybe why don’t we look at Chris Bosh’s stats too while we’re at it).

Chris Bosh

Luol Deng

Andre Iguodala

Paul Pierce

Josh Smith

You can see by just looking at the stats that Josh Smith should have been chosen. It should have been Deng, Iguodala AND Smith’s first All Star game. Yeah he was off to a rocky start but he shaped up this year! There was no reason why he shouldn’t have been chosen. A lot of other amazing players weren’t picked as well. I’ll write more entries! You guys haven’t been forgotten! It’s okay Josh Smith…we’ll get them! And their little dog too!
