Lebron is KILLING IT!

You know what time it is!

Fuckin Playoff Time!

And of course Lebron is just DOMINATING the competition!

The Knicks are getting pretty frustrated with how things are going…you can kind of tell with all the flagrant fouls and technicals that the Knicks are picking up today.

Lebron’s taken quite a beating today but NOTHING stops the King!

He’s taken a handful of charges like a champ! And he’s made some amazing shots a lot of them while being fouled.

Dwyane Wade has been sliding all over the floor too.

Lebron’s the leading scorer today with 27 points! Playin it like a BOSS!

And yes I am wearing my Lebron jersey today. Why wouldn’t I be? I’ll buy some more and mod them as the playoffs continue.

And the Bulls might just have to play without Rose for the rest of the playoffs.

We’re not sure how bad his injury is but he’s been out for a good portion of the regular season and it might just continue like that through the Playoffs. The Bulls will have no problem annihilating the Sixers but I don’t think they’ll be able to win the Championships without Rose.

Might be an ACL tear which is not good news for Rose or the Bulls.

On another note. Rose sold the most jerseys this year beating out some other superstars. It’s funny because I haven’t seen a Rose jersey on anyone this year.

Iman’s hurt. Ouch. Wade made an awesome shot though…well he’s made several awesome shots.

It’d be awesome if the Heat swept the Knicks but I give the Knicks 1 win in New York but no more than that.

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.

That’s racist as hell!

I thought I was too tired to write a blog entry today but then I saw this and it’s one thing to nickname Kobe the “Black Mamba” but it’s a WHOLE nother thing if you nickname Jeremy Lin as the “Yellow Mamba”…Really people? Is that okay?

Linsanity. Fine.

Linwhatever. Fine.

YELLOW MAMBA? REALLY? or should I say RI-RI? HARROO!

UGH. I’m okay with Fortune Cookies in my ice cream but this is a little weird…I mean what would Pau Gasol be? The Pale Mamba? Spanish Mamba? Like…what?

I was looking up Black Mamba shirts on ebay to see if there were any cute shirts for my cousin when I came across this. And so I just decided to look up Jeremy Lin shirts on ebay and I got back the WEIRDEST THINGS EVER!

Uh…yeah no.

I don’t even want to look any more.

Knicks finally won a game today. BUT Jeremy Lin had 7 TURNOVERS! SEVEN…Really? Really? But do you know who killed it today? Fuckin Tyson Chandler! 17 rebounds! Holy Shit! The Knicks really do need to work on their free throws though…J.R. Smith is adjusting pretty well save the excessive amounts of personal fouls but that’s nothing new…

Highlights from tonight’s game:

AND OMG SYRACUSE LOST! AHHHHHHHHHH…..COME ON KANSAS!

I was eating Pho tonight watching the game between Ohio State and Syracuse and I was so sad that they lost! UGH! But the Pho made it all better…hahaha

Syracuse was missing those free throws too…but not as many as Ohio State…they made about 31 out of 42 of their free throws….AND STILL THEY WON? Fail.

It sucks because Syracuse had a better shooting percentage overall tonight. Not enough rebounds and too many personal fouls.  A lot of bad calls too. UGH.

Dion Waiters FAIL.

We all knew this post was coming…

Welcome to the family Peyton!

GOODBYE TEBOW, HELLO MAWINNING!

You can go Tebow it up with the Jets. So long and farewell!

Bred to play Football from before birth the Broncos are psyched to welcome Peyton Manning to the family! I’ve been getting a lot of BS because he’s getting “old” but do you know what? The oldest quarterback to win a Superbowl was 38 so TAKE THAT. And do you know who it was?

JOHN ELWAY OF THE FUCKIN DENVER BRONCOS!

That’s right!

Who gave me shit that the mascot of my team is a horse? I’m sorry…how many Super Bowls have the Vikings won? I can’t remember…

OH YEAH…BECAUSE THEY HAVEN’T WON ANY!

What a great early birthday present for Peyton! FUCK YEAH!

He’s played 14 seasons for the Colts after being the Round 1, Number 1 pick of 1998.

The Trip was nice enough to let manning wear his retired number while he plays on the Broncos. Aww so sweet.

We got John Elway from the Colts just like we did Manning and it’s just going to be uphill from here on out! Best trades we’ve ever made! That’s for sure.

After being a Broncos fan for so long…I’m happy to see it at where it is today.

Bobcats reign victorious. Los Bulls host Nueva York. Injured wolves battle Suns.

Bobcats

I feel like I need to write a blog every time the Charlotte Bobcats win.

Dear lord, I don’t even know how they did it today!

Granted it was against the Hornets who are 10-32 but that’s still quite a feat considering Maggette only made 2 points and played for less than 10 minutes. And the highest scoring player was Henderson with 15 points… But you know what they had going for them? Team work. Something some other teams can learn a lesson from. If you look at the stats the rebounds, assists and steals are pretty evenly spread throughout the team. There may not be a star player but by distributing the work I think they got a good thing going today. A little disappointed by the 5 turnovers by Augustin but that can be forgiven. And do you know what else is crazy? They made 0 out of 12 3pointers that they attempted. So their stat for 3PM-A is literally 0.0% and they still beat the Hornets…good for them. A lot of people are out today on the Hornets but I’m still proud of the Bobcats none the less.

Biyombo killed it today. Not only did he make an awesome dunk but also a game saving block. It’s because of days like this you’re happy you’re a fan of the NBA.

I just wish Michael Jordan would dish out a little for his NBA team, you know? Does he just have blinders on? Wants to give the underdogs a chance?

But it’s been like this since MJ’s been playing in the league. Encouraging the draft picks of some less than great players. Come on, how could you get rid of Raymond Felton & Tyson Chandler?!

AND taking a stand AGAINST players during the lockout when YOU WERE A GOD DAMN PLAYER TOO? Come on now…

It’s like owning your own business, just because you’re good at your specific skill it DOES NOT MEAN that you have the capabilities of running an independent business by yourself. And I feel MJ is one of those people, sad because he’s one of the best players of all time.

Maybe I’ll just watch Space Jam and that will make everything better.

Anyways, here’s Biyombo on fire!

Knicks @ Bulls

The Header for this picture literally reads:

Rose leads Los Bulls past Nueva York

Really? Does the NBA really need to make Spanish jerseys? I got it when it came time to fight the attack on immigration but this might be going a little far. Don’t ya think? I find it’s just another marketing ploy, but what do I know right? Dear lord what will future generations think when they see this? I don’t even know.

And a lot of people thought the Knicks might have a chance today against the Bulls but the Knicks haven’t won a single game this month and they’ve been 2-7 since Carmelo came back. Let’s all face it, I was right, Carmelo doesn’t really play well with others. What? It’s true. The only real question is…what do the Knicks do about their team now? They can’t trade Lin because they’d get backlash about that and they can’t trade Carmelo because they gave up everything to get him last year, JR Smith fluctuates on his performance. It’s not so much that they need better players, they just need to find a way to manage the players that they already have. They could be such an All Star team if only they could figure out the right game plan to match everyone’s needs.

I mean…it’s been a close game today. Besides 3 pointers the Knicks have better shooting statistics today but the Bulls have better teamwork. No duh.

They’re averaging better rebounds, assists, steals, blocks…less personal fouls as well as turnovers. And of course Derrick Rose kills it with 32 points.

Did I tell you guys about his $250 million contract with Adidas over the next…how many years was it? 10 years. Well he has the possibility to make that much money with all the advertising and what not. Geez louise! Imagine how many Rolls Royce’s I could buy with that kind of money!

Several.

Hahahahaha.

Despite Jeremy Lin now being overrated you have to watch this insane block he did against DRose!

Timberwolves

Not all hope is lost! The Timberwolves are still doing pretty well despite the loss of their young rookie athlete!

Pekovic and Beasley are bringing their A game tonight against the Suns! But like I keep saying. They need to work on their free throws. They used to be the champs at free throws but as of late they’ve been way below par. Sad but it’s the truth and don’t you dare deny it! Otherwise all their shooting percentages are above 50% as of the 2nd quarter. They’ve also made 5 out of 8, 3 point attempts so that’s a good start too. You never know, one of Mike Beasley’s 3 pointers might end up winning the game!

Should the Twolves really trade Beasley at this point? Just saying.

Wolves (or should I say Los Lobos) are leading the Los Suns 63-56 at halftime.

Now to watch the Celtics play the 2nd best team in LA…

Pre All Star: East & West Matchups

Two big games to look forward to today!

Lakers vs Thunder

&

Knicks vs Heat

West vs West & East vs East. You’re not going to want to miss this!

Starting off with the Lakers vs Thunder, the clash of talent between old and new will be a great show. And since it’s right before the All Stars it’s a great chance to see how the teams play against each other. Tonight’s game will show if they are pumped up and ready to go at it with the East! 2 All Stars against 2 All Stars. They can also use today to size each other up, understand how each player moves and operates, how to best support each other. For those of you who didn’t know this is the first game of the season in which these two will be going head to head. Strange isn’t it? Since some teams have already gone up against each other anywhere from 3-4 times. This season’s a bit off but it makes it that much more intense and nerve wracking to watch and follow. Both the Lakers and the Thunder have won their last game up to this one so you know that they’re in it to win it! Being the #1 & #5 team on the Western Conference this also gives us an inside look as to what the Playoffs MIGHT look like. There’s still a lot of time for a shift in rank but when you think of the possibility of these two teams competing again when the time comes, it’s more likely than not so both teams could learn a lot from today.

So what needs to happen today for the Lakers to win? Kobe is going to need to put aside all of the trade drama bullshit and get back to playing a GOOD game. For the leading scorer in the NBA, Kobe tanked last night with 15 points. I was actually afraid that we might lose to Dallas. How unsettling is that? Me constantly checking the Ipad at work talking to myself about the game while I make drinks for customers. Most of them must have thought I was crazy. Gasol, on the other hand, is playing better than ever. Do you know why? Because he plays TO FUCKIN PLAY. I’ll forgive the 5 Turnovers he had last night because Kobe had 7. 7!?! Do you believe that? Thank God Bynum and Fisher stepped up yesterday.

The Lakers also need to be on top of Durant and Westbrook. Well, not literally but enough so they aren’t able to shoot. We can’t have them scoring like they have been if the Lakers want to win. Hayward and Collison may still be out from todays game so that’ll work to our advantage. And they need to watch out for Perkins when he’s on the floor. He’s been having a high number of rebounds every night and the one thing the Lakers do not need is Perkins being there to rebound every ball be it offensive or defensive. And we need to not play Ron Artest and just trade him somewhere. I’m sorry. And the only thing with playing Barnes or Morris is that they play well when it comes down to it but they get WAY too many Personal Fouls for comfort with the short amount of time they’re on the court. Just saying.

Maybe I’ll write about the Heats vs Knicks game later…I feel like that’s the one game everyone is already focusing on anyways. OMG A JEREMY LIN ROOKIE CARD THAT SOMEONE BOUGHT FOR $1000 SOLD FOR $21,800. FUCK people are crazy.
