Do You Know what time it is? TRADE RUMOR TIME! OH YEAH!

I guess we’ll talk about the MAN OF THE HOUR first.

No, it’s not you Dwight Howard.

I’m talking about Skittles.

It’d be cool to have Michael Beasley on the Lakers, but it’s not going to happen. We’d either have to give up our TPE or some players or picks and if we don’t…then we’re super close to having a huge luxury tax slammed in LA’s face. And besides, the Lakers already rejected that offer. We didn’t want to get rid of BOTH of our first round picks. Hope it wasn’t a mistake! Lolz. If it’s what I’m thinking the Lakers turned down the player-for-pick swap to save money for a player they actually DO need. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for Rondo or Sessions.

He’s probably either going to the Nets, Rockets or the Celtics. And God knows all three teams need as much help as they can get!

Plus the Wolves roster is getting a bit crowded with Williams and Webster. And seriously it looks like they are ALL too happy to get rid of him.

Do you remember when Derrick Rose got his own custom Skittles Machine?

I don’t get how people can eat so many of those…There should just be an NBA Skittles League. It’d be Michael Beasley, Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant. I’m sorry Lamar, they don’t make Chocolate Skittles.

Speaking of Lamar, after the Lakers traded him for basically nothing, this has been his worst playing season. Sad but true.

The Mavs might end up moving him to Phoenix to get Steve Nash instead…or Odom might not play at all. He should’ve just played out his days as a Laker. I don’t understand. Meh.

And what’s up with Dwight Howard?

The Magic want to keep him but does DH want to keep the Magic? Wait…that sounded corny.

DH wants to go to the Nets or to the Mavs but they have nothing to offer the Magic. And I guess they’re banking on him NOT becoming a free agent. And the Lakers are not going to give up Andrew Bynum. Who knows what’s going to happen? One thing is for sure, the Magic can’t give up everything for nothing again like they did with Shaq. THANK YOU ORLANDO. HAHAHAHA. OR MAYBE….they SHOULD do that again. Muhahaha. I still don’t think Kobe would play nice with him though and I would miss Pau.

And there’s that whole Dwight and Deron thing going on. Williams is going to leave if Dwight doesn’t come so should the Nets just trade him before he decides to leave anyways? Or do they just keep pushing to get DH? The Nets would have to accommodate Howard as a free agent which means less money. But in times like that you have to think of what’s REALLY important. Playing well on a team that you like and also one that can support you? Or just doing it for the money. I guess we’ll just have to wait…less than 2 weeks and we’ll find out.

ALMOST THERE PEOPLE! Hahaha.

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.

Who would your NBA 2012 All Star Western Center pick be?

Yes I am a Laker fan for life but is it just me who thinks we could have chosen someone else besides Bynum? I mean I know Al Jefferson hasn’t been having the BEST season exactly. But I guess a lot of the good centers are all on the Eastern side. The Gasol brothers?┬áLaMarcus Aldridge? Maybe? If anyone has any comments on that I’d like to hear.

While we’re on the topic of NBA All Star Starters, Mark thought they could have chosen a better small forward for the East but I actually think Carmelo deserved the spot, to be honest. IT IS NOT HIS FAULT THE KNICKS SUCK THIS YEAR AND THAT THE NUGGETS ARE BETTER. (*Mark you do not know what you are talking about*) Anyways, if it weren’t Carmelo I guess it’d have to be Paul Pierce or Danny Granger. Don’t you think? C’mon. Who doesn’t like Carmelo Anthony? Haha. I guess we’ll see what happens when they announce the reserve players for this year. Hopefully they’ll do it soon since the games are about 2 or so weeks ago.

And since I said I would do it, here it comes.

Critique of the 2012 NBA All Star Jerseys

Is it just me or does it look like those jerseys should be part of a Dentyne Ice Commercial? Where Lebron and Kobe are fighting bad breath and their jerseys are all dirty and worn out and with just one piece of Dentyne Ice both of them go flying through the air only to have monstrous Slam Dunks and right when the ball hits the rim their jerseys break out in crystallization like they’re both heating up and cooling down at the same time. Product Placement! That’s how I think they look anyways. Where do I start on the font? It’s like we’re all watching star tours at Disneyland and the letters just spread through centuries and galaxies, up down side to side. Not to mention the stars do the same thing. What is up with that by the way? Fact: Stars do not look cooler at an angle. And what is up with the design inside the numbers? Do we really need to see NBA home court tiling in the middle of the numbers? Someone just thought a wood plank design in natural wood and silver was just so magical apparently. AND WHY DO THEY ALWAYS DO THE THING WHERE THE PLAYERS NAMES AREN’T EVEN IN THE SAME FONT?! What is the point of that? Too lazy? I mean you knew which name was going with which number when you manufactured it. Are people not going to be able to read slanted futuristic font when it comes to the player name? Or is spending that extra 2 minutes putting ‘Durant’ into a computer generated font maker WAY too hard for some people. It must be that same intern that designed that Miami Jersey I was talking about yesterday.

Then what IS the best NBA All Star Jersey design? Well thanks for asking. I’d say 2009 was my favorite.

Granted it’s not PERFECT but it’s better than the stuff they’ll be wearing this year. It’s clean, simple and memorable. I’m divided on how I feel about the flame stars on the pants but overall it is what the NBA All Star Jersey should be like. ┬áNot sure why they used a slight variation from the font for EAST and WEST but who knows. I bet there’s just one MUST that has to be on all All Star jerseys and it’s that futuristic font they use. Do the designers that people will stop buying them if they stop using a certain type of font? Or that it instills memories and a certain type of feeling within people? *shrug* One thing that I CAN agree on is that I’m glad we’re past this:

Do you remember these? 2005/2006 All Star Jerseys…I’m just glad we’ve come so far since then. Haha.

Have a different favorite year? I could go over the pros and cons of every year but I think that’d be too much. I don’t know if I want to dish out $60+ for a jersey that I don’t think is designed well. The price you pay to be a fan right? I guess that was my little rant for now.
