The Unicorn may be down for the count but don’t count the Twolves out just yet!

A lot of fans were heartbroken at the loss of Ricky Rubio for the season, (and to be completely honest, I wasn’t one of them). I mean they call this a blog right? I’m being honest, don’t shoot me for it. But where as a lot of fans gave up hope of the Timberwolves being playoff contenders this year, I didn’t realize why everyone gave up so easily. Yes, Kevin Love can’t carry the whole team by himself. Yes, they need another young amazing point guard but was it quitting time already? I mean, I’m not even a Timberwolves fan but I wouldn’t give up on my team THAT quickly. Dear lord, it’s just one rookie. If you hold so much weight on just one player, you know there’s something wrong with how players are valued. It’s a TEAM effort people. Otherwise every game would be a 1 on 1 of every teams best player. What? Are we supposed to believe that a single player carries the whole team? (Not unless you’re Lebron James!) Haha. But anyways, the Timberwolves are doing just fine and everyone is pulling their own weight as well as supporting the rest of the team LIKE HOW A TEAM SHOULD BE. Of course they’re not going to be Championship contenders but we all know only a few select teams are even close to that. We watch the NBA to support the game as well as our favorite teams and players but this isn’t the end of the world. With this super compact season, players are getting injured left and right. I mean now we have 2 masked villains in LA. The Mamba and the CP3? Haha.

AS LONG AS THEY WORK ON THEIR FREE THROWS and keep up the team work, they will be fine.

 Kevin Love was struggling in the first half and his shooting was 5-13 but as he made his way into the second half of the game he managed to turn it around into shooting 11-23, not GREAT but better than where he was at the start of the game.

And surprisingly Pekovic has been playing well the whole game making 24 points (11-17), 8 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals.

Ridnour needs to watch the number of turnovers he makes every game…AND Pekovic…needs to watch it both on the fouls and the turnovers.

And as a team they’ve made 14 out of 22, 3 pointers, pretty good.

Love + Pekovic was a great matchup against Nash + Dudley

Steve Nash had 10 assists today. Too bad Amare is with the Knicks now… but Nash has always been amazing with assists, too bad it takes more than that to get a ring. Sucks but it’s the truth.

So basically, Timberwolves fans don’t fret. The season isn’t over yet.

You WILL lose to the Lakers this Friday making it a 19 straight win for the Lakers against the Twolves but that one was inevitable, Rubio or not. But they have an easy week up until they play the Thunder.

They play the Jazz on Thursday and they’ve been better than them so far so I’m sure it won’t be that big of a deal. As long as they keep up what they did today and play a good game then there shouldn’t be a problem in winning.

Oh and because this is somewhat related…

Kevin Love helped released the new Octopus at the Aquarium they have at the Mall of America.
(I’ve actually been there, it’s pretty neat. That place really is the biggest fuckin mall in America, dear god).

And the Octopus’ name is K-Love. Huh…

Oh well. Kevin Love fed it and gave it a basketball toy. Now we just need to wait 20 years for the octopus to grow to a ridiculous size so it can rape Kevin Love for releasing him into captivity. Sounds great. Maybe we should make a movie out of it.

Hollywood! I have an idea that doesn’t involve Jim Carey! Or maybe…

PATENT PENDING! Hahahaha.

What’s the point of this blog entry?

Never give up on your own sports teams.

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

Lake Show drowns out the Loserwolves!

That’s right! The Lakers did it again!

I guess all the Wolves got lost without Love. There were so many turnovers I started to get embarrassed for the Loserwolves…hah, not really. It WAS pretty awesome.

Whoever thought that the wolves would sweep LA was highly mistaken.

 Bynum and Gasol were on fire tonight!

And Kobe was back with his Phantom of the Opera hybrid mask on.

Here’s a better picture since my picture sucks:

Luke Ridnour looked like he had ADHD and he needs to calm the fuck down.

Ricky Rubio was just disappointing today.

Michael Beasley didn’t bring it like he did yesterday.

Williams and Randolph stepped up? Weird.

And for a team that is usually great with free throws missed a hell of a lot of them today. It was probably because of my yelling out loud obscenities and discouragements toward their way…YUP, that’s what made them miss. Yes I am awesome. Yes I can make people miss free throws by using my bad karma energy. Hahahaha.

Want to know my feelings at about 4 minutes left till the end of the game?
This picture says it all.

(Picture courtesy of Michael)

They played Luke and UGH HE SHOULD NOT BE PLAYING BASKETBALL.

BOOOOOO does not equal LUUUUUKKKKEEEEE

Just because he asks to get played, doesn’t mean that ANYONE should listen to him or let him ANYWHERE near the ball.

 All in all my cousin and I had a blast.

I spent a pretty penny today but it was ALL worth it! And thanks to Mark for the tickets!
LEAP YEAR GAMES ARE THE BEST!

Ate at ESPN Zone, bought my cousin one of these from the Laker store:

I wanted another Disney All Star shirt but they didn’t have them this year…gosh darn it!

I had a great time! Yay Lakers! 0.600 bitches!

Another awesome night for me! Yay!

In order to forgo the essay writing process…

I’m just going to update my blog. Fair enough right? But again it wouldn’t be fair to write this blog without a point in hand so…here it is! I’m going to teach everyone about the man that deserves nothing but hate! No, not the guy across the street who molests kids. It’s Michel de Montaigne! He is the father of the “essay”. The word was taken from his long volume called “Essais” or “Attempts” in English. Everyone was so impressed at his ability to form long speculated thoughts on intellectual matters while also including things like an autobiography and the occasional anecdote that they thought it’d be a great idea to not only use his title to make a word that most, if not all, people under the age of 24 absolutely loathe but that we should all start writing them too. Yay! Now everyone gets to write one! Damn the French! I knew nothing good could come from them! (Except for maybe Louis Vuitton, Peugeot Citroen, Bugatti and certain baked goods…but other than that…NOTHING!) Hahaha. It’s not that I can’t write this essay, it’s just that I’m so tired. Ugh. I know, it’s just another excuse. I’ll finish it though, no worries.

On another note though. This doesn’t happen in any other Asian American household but my own:

A mother and daughter both eating instant cup ramen. Am I the only one who thinks this is sad? I just looked at my mother and I couldn’t stop laughing at the idea. Just don’t tell children’s services…they might take me away! Oh wait, I’m too old for that. Phew~ I was worried there for a moment. But really? Aw my mom is weird but cute. She complained my noodles were to expensive at $1. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WOMAN? Haha. Anyways, everything will be okay. You should’ve seen what I was eating yesterday…

Yeah I was eating Cookie Dough, raw. I couldn’t help myself! I saw it at the supermarket and all I could think about was the Pillsbury Christmas tree sugar cookie dough they have during the holidays and I just HAD to have it. So what if it says I shouldn’t eat it raw. It’s so delicious! Plus, I don’t really like cookies so it can’t be helped. I know, weird huh? I like cookie dough but not cookies? That’s pretty much what I eat everyday. Cup Ramen + Coke and every once in a while you can through some cookie dough in there. My stomach’s a trooper! I have so much to write but I guess I’ll write another entry when I’ve at least written a little more for my essay.

Oh and God, if you’re reading this. I wish during the Magic vs Timberwolves game tomorrow that Kevin Love fractures both his feet while also managing to poke one of his own eyes out while receiving a pass. If that is not possible, I’ll settle for a sprained groin and many technical fouls. Thank You!

Knicks – Carmelo – Amare + Lin = Recipe for Success?

That’s right…It’s that time again. Another game with just Lin. Well not literally but it might as well be. Tonight it’s the Knicks vs Timberwolves and it’s a pretty close game. I just need the Timberwolves to lose so I can have the upper hand this NBA season. The more games they lose the happier I will be. But like it or not Love and Pekovic are on their game tonight so Lin’s going to need a little help. No, not from you creepy stranger wearing a Lin Mask. Maybe we can count on Iman Shumpert to step up like he did last night. Maybe I can just send bad vibes to all white men with ridiculous beards playing on the NBA (minus Pau Gasol).

But I can’t keep talking about the Knicks now can I? I don’t know what’s going to happen to the Lakers. Apparently the bet between Mark and I is still on. If I win I get new REAL Mercedes Benz floormats since mine are getting pretty old and weathered and if I lose (which I won’t) then I owe him Christmas Timberwolves game tickets. Yay! My baby is going to have new floormats and everything is going to be okay.

What is it with playing against the Magic? Someone just always gets hurt. First Chauncey Billups (Clippers) tears his Achilles tendon and then Carmelo Anthony (Knicks) sprains his groin. Ouch. Brandon Jennings should watch out because he’s probably next! It’s like a curse. They’re just taking down all the good players one injury at a time.

*Update*

Carmelo will hopefully be back by Tuesday, not 100% certain but wishful thinking I guess and Amare will be back when he deals with all his family issues and is ready to play again.
