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.

RIP Ray Bradbury

I woke up to the news today that Ray Bradbury had died and to be honest, I was pretty devastated. I loved his books growing up and they made me want to keep reading and growing not only as a scholar but also as a more well rounded individual. He opened my eyes to the world and to the belief that one day I too could become a successful author. I remember he would speak at Book Fairs and school events and I would always be so excited to go hear him speak. This man was a revolutionary. Even without a college degree, by reading at the library voraciously he was able to take that knowledge and turn it into marvelous works of literary art on paper. Although upset by his passing I will take this day to continue to be inspired by such an amazing man. He will live forever in his texts that generations from here on out will still continue to enjoy.

Just like Ray said, “I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before. But it’s true – hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t do it.”

I get to watch the Playoffs at work

How could anyone hate Chris Bosh when he is just so hilarious!

Everyone should love the Raptor!

RAWR!

Just watch him slowly dominate the screen while Lebron is having his little after game interview.

And I am so glad that the Pacers were able to massacre the Magic today.

Also surprised at how the Jazz just weren’t able to keep up with the Spurs today. Losing by 31 points IS pretty severe.

The Spurs had 7 players scoring in the double digits today which is pretty impressive. The Jazz just had an overall horrible shooting percentage today which just made it easier for the Spurs to clinch the win today.

And the Grizzlies need to keep up the lead through the 3rd till the end of the 4th to win it. This series might end up going all 7 games at the rate its at now.

No ring ma but look what else I got?!

I was watching TNT last night at the Harbor Pub when Charles Barkley got DOUSED with champagne.

And for those of you who missed it, here it is:

After a while Kenny just refused to sit down and he eventually just ran off stage. I’d be scared if I was him too. I can only imagine what Charles did to him afterwords.

And I didn’t think Jordan Hill would be playing with his THIRD DEGREE FELONY ASSAULT on his girlfriend.

I guess it is what it is…he not only supposedly hit her but threw her up against a wall and choked her too. Scary.

I was surprised by the 76ers win and greatly disappointed by the Celtics last minute win against the Hawks.

Oh but…seriously? Emmy? What the fuck is a “Sports Emmy”? I am so confused…

Good for you Charles!

And I know the Lakers will whip the Nuggets. Kobe is having a great scoring game so I’m not too worried.

Gasols Double Triple!

Gasol’s made like five 3 pointers this season and 2 of them were JUST NOW, back to back during the Mavs vs Lakers Overtime!

Two 3 pointers within 40 seconds of each other!

FUCK YEAH!

Kobe out. Lakers bench in.

You want to know what sucks about living in Hawaii? All the games are on early in the AM. I woke up to the Heat already having beaten the Knicks. UGH.

You think a girl could catch a break and watch some basketball…

but I’m up for the Mavericks vs Lakers game and thank god!

I’m just SO happy the Lakers can keep up the points with Kobe having been out for 5 games because of his shin.

I mean the Lakers have won almost all the games they’ve played without Kobe. Hopefully this game against the Mavs will be straight win #4.

The Mavs swept the Lakers last year during the playoffs so this win would be just that much more sweet!

The worst NBA bench in the league but they’ve been giving it their all.

And some great fakes by Kidd.

And I’m glad the Heat finally broke through with a win against the Knicks.

Especially since Carmelo made 42 points today. He’s had a lot of high scoring games lately.

The Knicks would’ve had the game today since their shooting percentage was only slightly lower than the Heat AND they had a higher 3 point shooting percentage but again what kills it most times is the ability to keep up a decent free throw percentage.

Some highlights for you guys who were like me and missed the game.

And Gundy’s rant of Flopping. Shumpert just SHOVED Jones! And Carmelo did the same thing to Lebron.

Back to the Lakers, if the Mavericks lose today then it’ll be a 3 way tie for 6th, 7th and 8th place. They really need to make a last effort push in order to win these final games before the playoffs. They have a couple days before their last game so it’ll give them some time to practice before they have to start the playoffs.

I just don’t know how it’s a 1 point game at this point because the shooting percentages for the Lakers are horrible.

Mavericks Shooting Percentages

FGM-A = 47.9%
3PM-A = 60.0%
FTM-A = 90.9%

compared to the Lakers

Lakers Shooting Percentages

FGM-A = 42.3%
3PM-A = 30.8%
FTM-A =  78.3%

 Dirk has been having a hard time today though, as it stands right now he’s shooting 7 for 22 and Bynum is 8 for 21. Sessions is killing it though!

But I can’t have a blog without it being somewhat informative so here it is!

We all know Kobe has been out because of his left shin injury from that game against the Hornets but here’s some more information about the injury.

It’s actually called TENOSYNOVITIS. 

“Tenosynovitis is inflammation of the lining of the sheath that surrounds a tendon (the cord that joins muscle to bone). The synovium is a lining of the protective sheath that covers tendons. Tenosynovitis is inflammation of this sheath.”

It occurs most commonly in the hands, wrist and feet but can also occur wherever there is  a tendon sheath.

Why does this injury affect Kobe and why is he out?

Well, this not only causes difficulty in the movement of joints but it also causes redness, swelling and pain in the joint area. It’s better to rest Kobe for the playoffs rather than to risk injuring him any further. Any cuts in the area might also lead to infection which would require immediate surgery.

The only thing Kobe and the Lakers need to watch out for is that with treatment recovery should not be a problem but if the injury and swelling was due to an overuse of the joint and the product of a repeated activity there is a chance that Tenosynovitis will come back which is not good news.

Tied game with 1.5 seconds left.

OVERTIME!

THANK GOD DIRK IS GETTING OLD! FUCK YEAH! HE’S MISSED 17 SHOTS!

“The only people who are unhappy about this is the 40 people who have to come in in about 4 hours to change the floor for the Kings game today”.

Hahahahaha.

LOS ANGELES LAKERS FOREVER! FUCK THE CLIPPERS!

I’m sorry I’ve been MIA BUT it only took my most hated team to be defeated by my home team to get me to write again!

That’s right! I was at the last Clippers vs Lakers game and guess what bitches?!

LAKERS WON! Because they are THE SHIT!

Who cares if we were leading by 14 or just 1 point. The fact of the matter is that we were leading because that’s what we do.

You ask and the Lakers deliver!

I need to order me a custom Ramon Sessions jersey! FUCK THIS GAME WAS TENSE!

Thank God I had some loyal Lakers fans by my side to cheer everyone on!

Kobe and Bynum KILLED IT TONIGHT! And I am SO proud of my Ramon Sessions! We all forgive you for your missed free throw shot…some of us even saw it coming BUT ALL IS FORGIVEN!

I am getting a Sessions jersey THIS INSTANT!

Lakers have got the best 2 out of 3 against the Clippers. The last game I went to was the first of the three so I’m glad to see the Lakers close the deal on this! What was the number one business motto that everyone should remember?

ABC! Always be closing! That’s right bitches!

We closed on the mother fuckin Clippers!

And how many 3 pointers did CP3 make? Oh…wait just 1. FAIL.

But Caron Butler stepped up his game tonight! He was on fire! Leading scorer for the Clippers tonight with 28 points!

There were some messy ass plays with some certain people missing slam dunks…but the Lakers won and that is all that really matters.

Bynum had 36 and Bryant had 31. Victory is so…so sweet when it’s against a wannabe team trying to take over LA. Get the fuck out of Staples Center and LA because this is OUR TOWN. There’s only room for ONE show and we all know who I’m talking about!

Our shooting percentages were all above the Clippers but that’s normal. Nothing surprising about that there. Wait…did you REALLY think the Clippers would have 7 straight wins? I think not.

Full highlights of tonight’s game. I love being a Lakers fan…it’s days like this where Kobe is 13 for 19 that make going to games SO worth it!

Who cares if Blake Griffin dunked over Pau Gasol. Dunking does not get you far in life. We can only see so many highlights of the same shit every night. That was so 2 years ago.

Does this idiot even know what “posterizes” means?

Definition: to print an image using only a few shades of gray, characteristic of posters

So…let me get this straight. Blake Griffin printed a gray image of Pau Gasol? on Pau Gasol?

RETARD OF THE DAY!

There were some HORRIBLE calls tonight too. A fucking technical on Sessions? for what?

And don’t you mean a foul on Kobe and not Ron Artest who was no where near ANYTHING! Refs are stupid as shit.

But it didn’t end up mattering because the Lakers are King.
