Really? Fined for Fake Injuries?

Really China? Really?

Fining him what ended up being 1/3 of his salary because he “feigned” injuries and subsequently missed practices? WHO DOES THAT?

They claim that it was part of the clause that he signed and that they kept warning him. Who knows if they really did or not. When JR Smith, or anyone from the NBA really, goes to China to play during the lockout it’s not because they want to be great moral citizens closing the gap of cultural tension between China and America. It’s for the money. Come on, it is.

So they’re claiming that he just said whatever to them taking out $1.06 million from his deal? I find that hard to believe. He lead the team to a victory by scoring 60 points off the bench against the Qingdao Double Star and then again by scoring 41 against the Shandong Lions.

Does a foreign player of the week award mean nothing?

Or even being chosen to play for the Southern All Stars as a starter?
(Even though he didn’t get to play).

Why the fuck would JR Smith fake an injury? I’d play basketball with a knife in my back for that extra $1.06 million.

Or maybe he is just as crazy as we all think he is.

Isn’t it enough that he played well? What do these people want? Dear Lord.

The BIG question everyone has in their head: Can Carmelo Change?

The Knicks are back after their loss against the Hornets. They stepped up and beat the Mavericks 104-97. Nowitzski’s 34 points weren’t enough to stop the Knicks. And they didn’t think JR Smith was going to be able to play today because he JUST got back yesterday but he’s doing just fine. What is the Knicks secret?

Teamwork

Something I’m not sure Carmelo could adapt to. It’s taking longer than expected for Carmelo to come back, but maybe it’s a good thing? Who knows if the Knicks would’ve had this many wins if he were still playing on the team. Would Lin ever have made it mainstream? Who knows?

Lin made an astounding 28 points, 4 rebounds, 14 assists. He is still on fire! But like I said it’s a team effort and everyone else chipped in. JR Smith scored 15 points, Chandler & Novak scored 14 points, Fields 13, Amare 11, Iman 5.

For the Mavs it was Dirk at 34 and the only other major shooters were Marion at 14 and Terry at 13.

Is Carmelo willing to share the spotlight? Carmelo’s Offensive Rebounds just suck this season and the Defensive Rebounds vary here and there. He just needs to be okay with assisting a little more than he’s used to. Passing the ball to someone who is open. I’m not saying he has to give up his high scoring days forever, he just has to learn how to play nice. This is a team sport you know? THERE IS NO I IN TEAM! Lolz.

Since Carmelo was the one who got JR Smith to sign with the Knicks, hopefully we can view it as a good sign. And not to mention because they have played together on a team before (Denver Nuggets) maybe they can use this to their advantage to really make the team strong and a force to be reckoned with.

But I’m not all too sure what’s going to happen. Even in an interview with Carmelo when asked how he feels about “Linsanity” he says he’s happy because he’s a part of it. A PART OF WHAT?

“OF COURSE I WANT TO TAKE THE LAST SHOT!”

We’ll see when it finally happens I guess.

Web of Connective Tissue

Since I didn’t finish my post this morning, thought I’d do that now.

I didn’t even go into depth about that Lamborghini Gallardo. It’s the Lambo that’s most likely to be seen because it is the most produced model. When someone says “mass-produced” you tend to think about 6 digits worth of cars but for the Gallardo over 10,000 were made within the first 7 years. That’s a lot for Lamborghini…hahaha. It’s like for every 1 millionth Toyota Corolla they make Lamborghini decides it’s about time to roll out a Gallardo. And this car is just another prime example of naming a car after what you want your car to be:

A fighting bull
And not just that, it’s a FAMOUS fighting bull. Damn straight. It wouldn’t be a Lamborghini without one!

And guess what else I saw yesterday? An old ass RHD Rolls Royce.

And he was young too! I’m so jealous!

And the Knicks signed JR Smith. *sigh* And I had such high hopes for the Lakers. They cut forward Renaldo Balkman to make room. Too bad for the Knicks he won’t be arriving on time for practice on Saturday so he won’t be able to start playing on Sunday but we should see him on the Knicks early next week. Yeah Carmelo might not play nice OR share the ball…so we’ll see what happens come next week.

OH SNAP! THE BOBCATS FINALLY WON A GAME! HOLY SHIT!

Timberwolves SUCK BALLS!!!!

You know what my favorite part of watching any game on ESPN is? Watching everyone rag on Lebron’s receding hairline. Especially Charles Barkley. Hahahaha. Everyone is priceless.

Oh and I didn’t even talk about that movie I went to watch yesterday. It was a really great movie. It IS a movie about a pedophile but it’s not really about the ACT of pedophilia but the everyday life of one man. The cinematography is AMAZING and the minimal use of words just makes it that much more suspenseful and thrilling. There are even brief moments of dark humor that just brings the whole movie together. The trailer for the movie says it all. This was the actual opening sequence of the movie. This movie in no way glorifies pedophilia or it’s actions. It’s just a well executed film and for those of you who are worried about anything really disgusting or frightening, this movie has none of that. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 73% and they only gave Star Wars Episode 1 a 57% HAH! Take that! So if you’re really into foreign films and into something different from the everyday romance or comedy, this is it! Try expanding your mind! I AM NOT JUSTIFYING PEDOPHILIA, by the way. I wish there was a way to stop it but it just seems so hopeless.

And last but not least…

OHHHH SNAP! THE KNICKS FINALLY LOST!!!ANNNNND IT WAS TO THE FUCKIN HORNETS! 

BURN.

It’s about God damn time.

*EDIT*

A note on the Title for this entry. This guy came in today to have a meeting with one of the managers and when he was describing how social networking works in regards to RSVPing for events he described it as a “web of connective tissue”. What a retard. No wonder you reak of “I’m never going to get laid”. What a loser.
