NBA commercial of the day

Don’t like Chris Paul but it’s pretty funny to see Mike Conley’s reaction when CP disappears into thin air.

Why Magic and Nash are eating lunch together?

Probably because Magic Johnson was psyched to see the Lakers acquire Steve Nash.

Mark and I weren’t sure why Steve Nash didn’t keep his old number (13) but I totally forgot that was Wilt Chamberlain’s number.

Do you guys remember why Nash chose 10? He said it’s because it’s the number of people on a soccer team.

Go figure Steve Nash is all about teamwork. Yay.

Now…how do we get rid of Dwight Howard…THAT’S the real question…

WHY ARE THEY WATCHING A CLIPPERS GAME?

Bleh.

Miami Heat vs Minnesota Timberwolves

Some highlights from the game.

I was surprised that the T-wolves were doing so well for quite a bit of the first half of the game. Especially without Ricky Rubio, who had an amazing first game back against the Mavs. They were apparently resting him so he would be back to normal sooner rather than later. According to Mark, they’ve been limiting his playing time to around 18 minutes per game in order to make sure that he gets the rest that he needs. So he played against Orlando but was inactive when the T-wolves were playing against the Heat. But Kevin Love is back. Although a few other members of the T-wolves are still out with injuries.

And what’s with that bandage on JJ Barea’s forehead? Reminded me of the old Steve Nash look.

Steve-Nash-One-Eye1Don’t you think?

And did you guys see that shot that Mario Chalmers made at the end of the first half during the Heat vs Timberwolves game? Beautiful!

I must say though, even if I am a Miami Heat fan, that they did make some BS calls against Minnesota during the game. Didn’t want to admit it to Mark or my father-in-law but there were a few times when fouls weren’t called or weren’t called correctly. It is what it is though. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Although, I don’t appreciate bad ref calls when it comes down to the playoffs, because then I get really pissed. We’ll see what happens with that though. For the most part refs have been getting better, or that’s what I think anyways.

Another funny thing was that the TV announcers started to talk about how basketball had become something resembling something like that of parents who want to take away jungle gyms after their kids get hurt. Uh…sure? I think he went a little off the mark with that comment and I’m not really sure where he was getting at but I still thought it was pretty funny.

And Battier was on top of his 3’s! It was so majestic when he would make each shot!

Although I must say, Ray Allen is getting old…he can’t hit those 3’s like he used to. Yeah he made one but it took him a couple tries. But, after all that I’m glad to see him play. I kind of wish they would give Mike Miller more minutes. I believe he still has potential.

And we’re going to a Timberwolves game next week so I’ll have updates on that as well!

And I can’t just leave you guys with nothing so here it is:

A commercial with Shaq and Nick Cannon…training. I thought it was entertaining. Lolz. Enjoy.

The Raptor Strikes Again!

My man Chris Bosh is single-handedly smoking the Nuggets right now!
(Well, we’re only 1 point ahead at this point, but still).

32 points, 7 rebounds, and 1 assist with 27 minutes played!

But the Nuggets are all contributing point wise so the Heat will have to stay on their toes to win this one but I know we can do it!

We just let New York win because we felt bad…too soon? … Maybe.

I’m glad Iguodala gets to shine on the Nuggets though. It’s going to be an interesting season for the Nuggets this year.

Sad News?

The Bobcats are doing better than the Lakers.

Worse opening tip off in 45 year history for the Lakers? Mark says things will get better and that when Steve Nash comes back that the Lakers will be a good team but somehow I highly doubt that. To lose against the Clippers was a low blow, especially for me since the Clippers are the #2 team for LA. Psh. Clippers suck. If Blake Griffin gets most improved player of the year…I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life. But, that’s never going to happen so I have nothing to worry about.

And here’s what I was talking about earlier with Rasheed. Glad to see him back.

Stupid NBA TV/League Pass bullshit. Just let me watch some games on my TV! I’ve had enough college football for today.

Oh yeah, I got married today

I know it’s a little out of the blue but Mark and I got married today!

Nothing fancy, we just got our marriage license and then went to get a civil marriage in the afternoon. I couldn’t have been happier. Yeah it was non-traditional but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

It went pretty quick and we kind of smiled/laughed our way through our “Hawaiian beach wedding” ceremony. We didn’t take it as a joke but it was just cute holding each others hands and repeating vows in front of a beach backdrop. I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 1/2 years since we’ve met too. Time goes by fast but I’m happy where I am now.

And I want to thank everyone for their warm wishes! You guys are the best! I really mean it!

And before I start talking about the NBA I have to say that my family is either super special or all in on some big joke to GET me.

First, I told my mother I got married and she said, “Congraturation”. Is my own mother making a racist joke on Asians or is she just being Asian?

And then when I told my uncle I was married he typed back, “Congradulations” to which I was just dumbfounded by. Really? ConGRADulations?

And then when I texted my aunt that we were married she texted back, “Congrets”.

WHAT IN HOLY HECK IS GOING ON WITH MY FAMILY? I bet they were all next to each other when I texted them…God, I hope that’s what happened…

Either way, I’m just happy that they’re happy for us. Yay! That’s all that really matters.

And what better news than for both of our teams acquiring better players for next seasons roster! As well as working on getting other established players as well!

When I looked up “lakers trade rumors” pictures on Google all I get are pictures of Dwight Howard in a Lakers jersey. UM, NO THANK YOU VERY MUCH. But the Lakers somehow managed to get Steve Nash (TO WHOM I AM NOT MARRIED TO THANK YOU VERY MUCH!) and the Timberwolves got Brandon Roy and I think they’re pretty close to getting Batum. Who knows Pau might be over there sometime soon as well too but like I said earlier, all these Pau Gasol trade rumors add up and I can’t be bothered to go through each and every one of them like they might ACTUALLY happen. An interesting one that’s popped up out of the ol’ rumor mill is that they might trade Pau Gasol for Andre Iguodala…that might be pretty cool. But somehow I think we’re just going to keep Pau Gasol because nothing will be worth the trade according to the head office in LA.

It is what it is.

Living it up the only way I know how!

Hey you guys I’m sorry I’ve been gone but I’m alive and well!

My last days in LA consisted of going to a Clippers game and sitting in a Suite and eating tons of Korean BBQ. YUP! Be jealous!

And now I’m in sunny Hawaii soaking up the sun in my cowboy boots. Hahaha.

The NBA scene has been going crazy while I’ve been gone so I don’t even know where to start!

Oh no wait…I lied. I know EXACTLY where to start!

I was at the Clippers vs Kings game where Blake Griffin made that shot when he was down. Thank God it didn’t count for jack shit though. Yay!

That was a pretty amazing shot though. Especially when you get to sit so close to the center of the action!

I CAN’T GO BACK TO THE 300 SECTION!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!!!

It was fun seeing DeMarcus Cousins play too. And watching Blake Griffin miss his free throws made everything just THAT much better. Haha.

And while I’ve been gone the Celtics have managed to work their way up the Eastern Conference ladder while other teams seem to be losing their star players. I mean in one week Kobe Bryant, Kevin Love and even Corey Maggette is out. Not to mention the other people who have been knocked down along the way.

The only thing that sucks about being in Hawaii is that most of these games happen anytime from 10am to like 3pm my time. When am I supposed to watch these games? While I’m at work? Ugh…Whenever I have a chance to look at my phone to see the scores the games have already ended…that’s something that I’m going to have to get used to…it might take some time though.

And I’d still like to see the Bucks make the playoffs this year if at all possible…they just need to win their games and make sure that the Knicks keep losing.

The Heat need to stop losing though…for real.

Lebron made 30 points, 6 rebounds and 5 asssists.
Wade had 21 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists.
Bosh had 20 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists.

But the Bulls had more players (5) having double digit scoring and the Bulls had a better 3 point shooting average which makes a big difference. 11 out of 22 3 points shots made is pretty impressive.

AND  OMG BYNUMS 30 REBOUNDS! That kid can only get better. I’m glad we didn’t trade you!

It was the Lakers first out of 3 games with the Spurs and Bynum killed it!

All 3 games that the Lakers have with the Spurs are all within a span of 10 days. As long as Bynum keeps up the good work we should have no problem taking out the Spurs for all 3 games.

It’ll be fun to see the Lakers play the Thunders as well on the 22th.

Speaking of the NBA…Mark bought NBA Jam so I’ve been watching him play and it’s pretty hilarious. They just use cropped photos of the heads of players and mount them on top of animated bodies. I’ll put a link to a clip but before I do that we just thought the lineup for the Phoenix Suns was so hilarious! It’s Nash and the dude who impregnated his wife. Ouch. Hahaha. Forever immortalized in an XBOX360 game…just priceless.

Or maybe I won’t attach a video…people keep talking over their videos and it’s kind of annoying. Meh.

And before I go this is the only picture I’ve taken since I’ve come to Hawaii. We stopped by Yogurtland yesterday and they had a Birthday Cake Batter flavor! YUM! We both mixed it with the Red Velvet Cupcake batter and it was like heaven in a cup. All it needed was a few sprinkles and a little drizzle of condensed milk to make it JUST right!

I’ll take more pictures of Hawaii…soon. Mahalo!

Now I’m going to back to playing Portal 2 a second time around! Thanks Mark!

The Googly eyed big bosses of the NBA

This post is dedicated to SportyMcSports.

So I’m here today to do some research as to why there are an overwhelming number of googly eyed or bug eyed players in the NBA. Does it help them succeed? Does it help them bring all the boys to the yard? Who knows? One thing I do know is that before I can go any further with this study that it is important to define what it is that I mean when I say googly eyed so what better place to get a definition than from Urban Dictionary?

There were several different definitions but I thought the one that served our purpose best was this one:

Googly Eyed – Human eyes that protrude from the skull in a manner similar to a frog or a fish. This gives the freakish human an increased field of view, double that of a normal person. This strange feature often results in severe rejection by the opposite sex.

Example: My roomate has repulsive googly eyes; I get scared when I see them shine in the dark.
Dwyane Wade
What sparked this interest in googly eyed players in the NBA? This picture of Dwyane Wade:

 Dwyane Wade…where do I start? I mean all around an amazing player. MVP of the Finals, great PPG average although be it a little too many fouls but otherwise an exceptional NBA star. Maybe those bug eyes do help?

1 Finals MVP Award 2006

1 NBA All Star Game MVP 2010

And some medals from the Olympics

Lead the Heat to their FIRST NBA Championship

I mean after watching this episode I think Wade may have his OWN obsession with EYES. I got really excited when I started watching it because I thought he could play the piano but…yeah…

Even the shirt he’s wearing in the video has weird eyes to it. Wade’s subconscious coming out?

Wait…did THIS surgery make him MORE googly eyed? Is that even possible?

That way he can see EVEN more of EVERYTHING? Right? That’s how it works right?

I don’t know about the “rejection by the opposite sex” based on the sole fact that we are talking about NBA players here. I’m sure even Luke Walton has his groupie days. EW…EW…god I hope not though.

Although, D-Wade’s (estranged) wife has had a tendency of being a little…off? Not only was she arrested but now she’s suing D-Wade’s girlfriend? Weird.

In my opinion, Gabrielle Union is MUCH prettier (and younger) than Siohvaughn Wade anyways.

I rather have her instead of…

her. Plus this bitch is seriously crazy. I accidentally came upon an article titled “Siohvaughn’s 9th Divorce Lawyer Quits”. Uh…is that even possible? Really? I feel bad for those kids, that’s whats up.

 His bug eyes missed with Siohvaughn but at least they caught sight of Gabrielle. I wonder if that has anything to do with his Lasik eye surgery…Hmmm…you never know! That’s 1 out of 2 for Wade. 50% success rate. Sounds about right.

Next.

Tim Duncan

4 time NBA Champion

2 time NBA MVP

3 time NBA Finals MVP

This man has gone it DOWN! He was the Round 1 Pick 1 of 1997 and he’s had an incredible career since then!

But why is it when I type in ‘Tim Duncan eye’ on Google Images I just get pictures of Steve Nash? Weird.

But no one has more googly bug eyes than Duncan, I mean look at the dude. Every picture I see of him is him with some outrageous expression and eyes about to pop out of their sockets…either dad or he looks like a sad dog.

Dude, Call me!

Remember that time when Raymond Felton poked Duncan in the eye? Man was he hurting! He couldn’t even BEGIN to stop Amare!

Hmmm but Duncan rarely gets fouls so I guess we can cross that out as being related to the googly eyed syndrome.

And Tim Duncan’s wife Amy is pretty cute. They’re college sweethearts which is cool.

How’d that last lines of Kanye’s Gold Digger go?

“I know his dude’s balling but yeah that’s nice
And they gone keep calling and trying
But you stay right girl
But when you get on he leave your ass for a white girl”

Hahaha.

Next.

Steve Nash

Even with one eye you can tell that they’re googly as hell.

No Championship rings but 2 consecutive Finals MVP awards

BUT it takes certain skills to make shots with only one eye.

Some of the Suns players try to do the same with an eye patch but fail. It’s scary looking at Steve Nash when he’s talking though…his eyes…it’s like they have a mind of their own.

Even does a layup over Duncan at the Playoffs with his eye injury. He’s a fighter all right.

But Steve Nash’s wife was not only ugly but a dirty ass hoe too. You KNOW that ain’t your baby when he’s not even the same color as you…It doesn’t matter because she has a man jaw anyways. She looks like a horse.

Did someone ask for a talking horse? Mister Ed is ALL the talking horse this girl needs.

What a weird coincidence…His wife cheated on him with Jason Richardson (his former teammate) and now Nash’s new girlfriend is named Brittany Richardson. Small world I guess. (No relation though…aw shucks!) Go Steve Nash for snagging someone half his age.

Maybe there IS something to this theory. I see some things coming together. Now if only his googly eye could help him finally win one for the Suns my research would be near perfection! But alas…that is not the case…at least not at the rate the Suns are moving at now.

Who are we at now? Sporty said Kobe has googly eyes but I don’t know about that…I mean he does sometimes and other times he really doesn’t. Plus I’ve already written about him once today. One mention a day is enough for Kobe.

Next.

Tracy McGrady aka T-Mac!

Look at those big lazy puppy dog eyes…

No MVP awards or Championship rings but this dude is an all time high scorer. Come on, who doesn’t love T-Mac? Is the leading scorer, among all active players, for post season scoring and he’s 4th of all time. Not bad… yeah he couldn’t lead his teams out of the first round of playoffs but he’s a lot better than most of what the NBA is made up off *cough* Luke Walton *cough* …but he’s getting old too.

I’m so happy I got to see him a few weeks back.

I found a clip of T-Mac poking Nicolas Batum in the eye…hahaha

But the sad thing is coach Larry Drew of the Hawks is cutting back his playing time as the games go on. Poor T-Mac. Sometimes he’s only playing about 4 minutes a game. This is TMAC we’re talking about. Maybe he could’ve helped the Hawks win that game I went to against the Clippers… even he said it was a bunch of shit.

I found a great clip of him making a game ending 3 pointer and at the end of the clip they have a close up of his eyes…he’s just owning that shit right there!

And apparently his wife is on Basketball Wives. I never watch that shit so I have no idea. Who gives a fuck about some dimpy NBA wives? I have no idea where some people come up with these show ideas.

Meh. What can I say? They have the same…eyes? Hahaha. I think he could’ve done better to be honest.

Dwight Howard sometimes gets it but usually he’s normal…

Next.

Ron Artest
I AM NOT CALLING HIM METTA WORLD PEACE kthnx.

Do I have to talk about him? Can’t we just trade him somewhere…far far away? Please?

I mean he’s a cool eye…I’ve seen him do stand up, I’m seen him give personal friends free tickets to Lakers games and stuff but ugh…I want the Lakers to actually win another Championship if at all possible.

I couldn’t find anything on his condition, no not being bipolar…I found TONS of stuff on that, his other condition (his eyes) so I’m just going to entertain you guys with this video of Jimmy Kimmel playing a prank on Artest.

Obviously it’s not THAT good of a prank because then otherwise Jimmy Kimmel would be dead.

1 NBA Championship ring (that he sold and auctioned off for charity) and

1 Defensive Player of the Year Award

No way, this bitch is on Basketball Wives too? Ugh…do I HAVE to finish writing this?

He could’ve done better. SHE HAS A TATTOO OF HIS NAME ON HER BOOB? UGH. This woman has NO CLASS.

But we all know Ron Ron gets around…and around…

Wait…Ron Artest was on Dancing with the Stars? Dear LORD! What is going ON with the world? And yes I’ve been living under a giant boulder for a good portion of my life…I’m so tramatized now. I don’t even want to KNOW what any of those shows are about. I’m good with just sticking to the good old NBA.

I give up. I can not look at these ugly broads another second more.

My conclusion? That there might be a link between NBA awesomeness and Googly Eyes BUT that the wide range of view the eyes provide do not, in the long run, help in the process of choosing a significant other. If anything the results are variably mixed.

I think I might have some serious nightmares from all of the googly eyed clips I’ve gone through tonight…

Not a crime to kill an NBA All Star Zombie during the apocalypse! Although…that WOULD be quite challenging to accomplish. Maybe I can wait for the Resident Evil crows to come peck everyone’s eyes out so it won’t be as creepy. I wonder if I could outrun an NBA Zombie…probably not. Thank God for baseball bats to the knee right? I think I’d be doomed without it.

And maybe I’ll cover some other folks but for tonight…this is as far as I’m willing to go. I can only deal with so many fugly chicks in one night when I’m not being paid.

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.
