TRADE DEADLINE Update

Dwight Howard is a big bitch and if I were the Magic I’d let him go where he wanted. How could you promise a player to pick the next manager and coach? Is he REALLY that important? Ugh Dwight, even my bro Lebron wasn’t that much of a big cry baby.

But want to know about BIG NAMES that actually DO matter and will probably get traded?

Michael Beasley

Well Michael Beasley is coming to the Lakers which I’m just PSYCHED about! I’ll trade Steve Blake for him ANY DAY! I can’t wait to get my hands on a Beasley Lakers jersey. Haha. I know the Lakers need a point guard more than anything but I’m sure having Skittles won’t HURT the team any more than Blake HELPED the team. Yay!

Deron Williams

So since the Nets aren’t getting Deron Williams he’s out of there but who knows where he will end up. Sorry Nets…after you guys were trying to make it too. Maybe during the drafts you could pick up someone new.

Gerald Wallace

I’m sorry Trailblazers but your team is going to be a mess after today. All your star players are leaving for a better team and especially after that 42 point upset against the Knicks yesterday it’s no surprise everyone wants out. I would want out too if I got beat by the Knicks who haven’t won a single game this month. I mean for god’s sake D’Antoni resigned yesterday AND THEN they won? It’s not like he was the main root of their problems. They’re still going to need to figure out what to do about the team. One win on a whim isn’t going to be good enough to make it back to playoff status.

Teams most likely to acquire Wallace are Larry Bird’s Pacers or the Orlando Magic. This could be taken as an attempt by the Magic to appease the god known as DH. UGH. I hope they DON’T get Wallace. Howard doesn’t deserve anything at this point. GO SUCK IT, REALLY THOUGH.

Jamal Crawford

Like I said, he’ll be in a 3 way trade with Beasley and Blake.

Pau Gasol

Being a life long Laker fan it’s going to be sad to have to say goodbye to Pau but this game IS a business and I understand that it has to be run like a business. LA’s going to miss you Pau! Stay strong!

Where is he headed? Either the Houston Rockets or the Chicago Bulls.

The Rockets have had their eye on Gasol ever since the beginning of the season and they have what the Lakers need, a point guard and maybe that’s just what we’ll get. Hopefully a half decent one at least! DEAR GOD NO MORE SHITTY TRADES!

OR

The Bulls have been showing interest in him as of late trying to build up their All Star team. Who would they give up for Pau though? Would be be on the bench a lot more than? Hmmm…

Paul Pierce

Paul Pierce has been a Celtic his whole NBA career, 12 straight and solid years of loyalty and what does Danny Ainge want to do? He wants to trade him. With who? The Trailblazers. Yeah, I know. UGH. It’s not really clear what he asked for in return but I wouldn’t give up Pierce for anything less than AWESOME. I don’t like Paul Pierce as a person but I can admit that he’s an amazing player and that he too shouldn’t be traded for peanuts. I thought he could be the Steve Nash of the Celtics and just live out his career there. UGH DANNY. Causing problems for everyone during the trade talk season. Although after everything the Trailblazers will be giving up it would be a godsend if Pierce were to magically show up but I doubt that it’s going to happen and I rather it not.

Ray Allen

A lot of teams have been scoping out Ray Allen as well. Top contenders? The Indiana Pacers and the Clippers who have been struggling since Billups went down. DON’T DO IT RAY ALLEN! DON’T PLAY FOR THE CLIPPERS!!!!!!!

SO CLOSE YOU GUYS!

Love for Josh Smith & Blake Griffin’s Airball free throws!

So we had my grandfather’s wake yesterday and another service along with the burial today and it was heartbreaking for all of us. So much so that my uncle forgot about his son’s YMCA basketball playoff game that by the time I reminded him it was too late to make it home and to the game. My cousin was depressed and my uncle told me to take him somewhere so I looked at who was playing a home game tonight and since the Lakers were away playing the New Orleans Hornets (who they beat) I decided we could go watch the Clippers because they were set to play the Hawks and I love Josh Smith.

When I looked up tickets they started at $1 each…seriously $1. So I upgraded our seats and got better for $4 per person. Haha. I got to take all 4 of my cousins to the game. I only usually take Matthew because the girls never showed much interest in sports but it was nice I could share the experience with all of them today.

So we bought tickets and made our way down to the Staples Center!

Boy was today special. Who thought rooting for the Hawks and Josh Smith would get me so much shit…ESPECIALLY when I’m with 4 little kids. Hahaha. We all laughed about it though.

They had a little Call of Duty Elite commercial going on. Which made me happy. Hahaha. I thought they were going to give away a Call of Duty jeep and I got all excited!…but they didn’t. Oh well.

When they introduced the Atlanta Hawks they played Star Wars music which was hilarious. I was like THIS JUST MAKES ME LIKE THEM EVEN MORE! YEAH! I mean…I still wish Mike Bibby was on the Hawks but we can’t win EVERYTHING right?

And like in every sports event in America they have to sing the national anthem before anyone does anything serious so tonight they brought out the kids from Hollywood High to sing the anthem and do you know what? It was the BEST FUCKIN ANTHEM EVER! You know why? Because when the camera man was slowly making his way around the encircled group to get a shot of each of their angelic singing faces all you could see in the back was crotch shot after crotch shot of each of the Clipper Spirits (Cheerleaders). They’re all ugly in the face so this was the best angle he was getting of them all night! Hahaha.

Aww. I had fans hatin’ on me ALL NIGHT LONG! These B.O. ridden, band wagon jumping jerks from douche city just kept cheering in my face and getting up after each play so I did the same exact thing. Every time the Hawks made a play I’d just stick it in their fuckin faces and you know what? The Clippers missed SO MANY free throws today it was embarrassing.

Sure, Blake Griffin can dunk but he has to be one of the WORST free throw shooters out there. I have proof!

Air ball free throws

Not to mention we all know this is a frequent occurrence. We all know today wasn’t the first time. Because I have proof of that too!

The 4 boys behind me kept dissing the Hawks but they kept asking me if I could buy them a beer because they’re underaged.

Uh….yeah right. I just laughed in their face.

They were saying that the Clippers are better than the Lakers but I had to remind them that the Clippers are actually FIFTH count it, 5th (1-2-3-4-5th) in the Western Conference. AND that they’ve lost 2 games in a row. That’s right! I know my stats! What’s up bitches? Come bring it?

Told them I was a Laker fan for like and that I hated the Clippers. And of course their reply was that I hated the “NEW LA TEAM” but I pointed to the Championship flags and retired jerseys and asked them to point out which of THOSE were Clipper related? EXACTLY! THAT’S RIGHT! NONE OF THOSE ARE BITCHES!

NAME ONE PLAYER ON THE CLIPPERS FROM 5 YEARS AGO?

CAN’T DO IT HUH? BECAUSE YOU’RE JUST A BANDWAGON JUMPER LIKE EVERYONE FUCKING ELSE!

I’m a fan of basketball. I couldn’t even diss Mo Williams when he played tonight (He played amazingly by the way) because I’ve loved him EVER since he was on the Cavaliers. How can I jump teams now? One that has a racist money hungry owner who doesn’t give TWO SHITS about his fans. Yeah no thanks, I’ll stick with my Lakers.

Oh what? Did someone just BLOCK THE FUCK out of your fast break? Oh well I’m sorry…

I got to see Josh Smith, Joe Johnson, Kirk Hinrich AND TMac. I had an AWESOME day.

This one dude in front of me who was on his phone the whole time turns around and says,

“If you hate the Clippers so much, why did you PAY to see them?”

And I looked him RIGHT in the face and said,

“I paid $2 for this seat to watch Josh Smith”. 

And he didn’t turn back around the whole game.

And whenever the guys behind me would say,

“Fuck that n****, who is Josh Smith? Who is Joe Johnson?”

I’d just respond with,

“They’re still better than you. I don’t see YOU playing in the NBA”.

OH OH OH OH OH

AND the same guy was like WATCH BLAKE GRIFFIN MAKE THESE FREE THROWS! …BOTH AIRBALLS! TAKE THAT SUCKA!

The two guys in front of me were nice, true Clippers fans from way back when. We talked and he asked why I hated them and I told him I was a fan of the game and that I wasn’t a fan of how the Clippers were run and he understood. We talked sports some more and he kept saying, “This girl knows her NBA” but by the end of it they were asking for my number but I told them I was getting married. Hahaha.

Trying to date someone who hates your team? Hahahaha.

My cousins had a fun time watching me yell at EVERYBODY! The other Hawks fans were so quiet. Every once in a while they would say something but not often.

It’s okay Hawks. Still #6 in the East! And Josh Smith probably isn’t going to be traded by tomorrow but I doubt he’ll be there during the off season.

All in all a good day for a rowdy fan of basketball. FEELS GOOD!

OH And here’s my FUN FACT for the day!

The last time the Clippers beat the Hawks was Feb 7 2009. Yup. 3 years. SUCK ON THAT  CLIPPER BITCHES!

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

Wait What?

Image

I thought Rasheed Wallace was signing with the Lakers but now there’s rumors that he might sign with the Heat?
Dear Lord what is going on with these crazy trade rumors these days?
What could the Heat possibly have to gain from signing Wallace except for A LOT MORE TECHNICAL FUCKIN FOULS?
He can’t be the defense that the Heat need. I’m sorry but it’s true. His defensive skills have gone down while his age has gone up.

So…because they couldn’t get Kenyon Martin and Joel Przybilla the next best option is Rasheed Wallace? Really? I mean I know they’re looking for a Veteran but geez louise.

Bosh just needs to stop missing games…I’m sorry they don’t have a strong power forward or center without Bosh? We all have our problems…lolz.

Oh Lakers, we’ll be the same team for another season I guess. It’s like a Shakespeare tragedy. With every rise there is a fall. *Sigh*

I was looking forward to watching Wallace play too. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for Allen Iverson. JUST MAYBE SOMEDAY!

Lakers beat Heat. First time since LeBron is in Miami

Was it because Kobe, Bynum and Artest was on fire?

Or was it because Chris Bosh was at his grandmother’s funeral?

What is with the “El Heat” and “Los Lakers” jerseys anyway? Wasn’t that SO 2 years ago during that whole Arizona Immigration law deal? Hell if I know. I wonder how much money it costs just to print new jerseys for random occasions. Tons I bet. I like how they’re both super color coordinated too. Hahaha. Aww~ Got to be stylish on the court and off! You know how it is.

But anyways, this was the Lakers’ first win against the Heat since Lebron hopped on board after leaving the Cavs. Sad, I know. But with an All Star team like LeBron, Bosh and Wade it is what it is.

The Heat beat the Lakers the first time this season without Wade 98-87. Although Pau Gasol was at an all time season high with 26 points, 11 for 19 shooting. Can’t win them all I guess.

But I think overall even if Bosh did play today that the Lakers would have owned it. Why? Because all of our shooting percentages were higher than the Heat’s.

Lakers

FGM-A = 49.3%
3PM-A = 29.4%
FTM-A = 72.0%

Heat

FGM-A = 37.5%
3PM-A = 29.2%
FTM-A = 66.7%

And with a lot of teamwork. Today was Kobe’s 3rd straight game of scoring over 30 points.

Kobe = 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 33 points 
Artest = 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 17 points
Bynum = 13 rebounds, 2 assists, 16 points

 Gasol = 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 11 points

Everyone brought their A game today!

And I’m sure NOT playing Luke Walton helped a lot. I’m just saying…Unfortunately (or fortunately) this is the last game they’ll be playing against each other this short season at least until the playoffs if it gets to it. I’m just glad Kobe is out of his funk and is shooting better and has shaken off this Pau trade bullshit emotional rollercoaster he’s been on.

That first game the Lakers lost to the Heat everyone except Gasol was shooting pretty poorly. Kobe was 8 for 21, Barnes was 1 for 6, and Fisher was 1 for 5. What do the Heat need to work on to secure more wins? Free throws.

WAIT!

I can’t end this blog entry without talking about trades again. To be honest I wouldn’t be surprised if the Lakers didn’t trade for anyone. Yeah, Pau’s been on the chopping block but I doubt it’s going to happen. We’re not going to let go of Kobe or Bynum and although we SAY we’re interested in swapping out Pau I doubt it’s going to happen. We might sign some other retired players from out of the blue ( FINGERS CROSSED FOR ALLEN IVERSON JUST CUZ ) but other than that I doubt the Lakers will make a move by this upcoming deadline. I’d love some Celtics traded to LA but it just doesn’t seem likely. We won’t have another ring but I guess we’ll have the old gang playing out as a team for at least one more season. Like I keep saying, it is what it is. I wasn’t expecting to be Championship contenders anyways. I just want to see if Rasheed Wallace has still got it! The Lakers do have the worst scoring bench in the NBA. Sad but so very true. *cough* Luke Walton *cough*

Yay for today’s win!

I STILL LOVE YOU LEBRON! Hahahaha. Fun times.

I think Dwight Howard just wants a better team

Instead of looking to move anywhere Dwight Howard just wants certain people to come to HIS team.

Hmmm…All I’ve been seeing and hearing is

Dwight Howard wants to play with (blank).

Dwight Howard scouting out (blank).

So on and so forth. Does that mean he thinks his team can get someone without him leaving?

So who does Dwight Howard want to play with? Here’s the list:

1. Monta Ellis

The Warriors will give up Monta Ellis for DH but they won’t let him go just because DH wants to play with him. And the Warriors don’t really want anyone from the Magic.

2. Steve Nash

DH wants his team to GET ON getting Steve Nash. If they do then DH will probably resign during the summer and become a free agent in 2013 when most of the other guys he wants to play with will become free as well. The only thing is, Steve Nash isn’t going anywhere. The Suns aren’t going to let him go unless he ASKS to be traded and Nash has already made it clear that he wants to play out his career as a Sun. Nash said he would understand if the Suns would want to move him around but from what I understand there’s a mutual agreement that they’re going to hang tight with each other. I guess Steve Nash will just go his career without a ring. Oh well. No skin off my back.

3. Chris Paul

Not going to happen this season. That’s for sure. The Clippers aren’t going to let go of CP3 or Griffin as of now. Plus they’d be paying up the wazoo if they even entertained the idea of getting DH. Next.

4. Andre Iguodala

Iguodala wants DH to come to the Magic, not the other way around. He’s just got to convince him to come play for the Sixers. That seems unlikely though. Next.

5. Josh Smith

They grew up together. What can you say? How long? Since pre-school, apparently they liked the same girl. Hahaha. Same AAU team as teenagers and now battling it out on the court. Cute huh? But the Celtics have been eyeing Josh Smith HARD. Even enough to give up Kevin Garnett. Who knows if that is going to happen but that’s what it’s looking like now. If the Magic really want to keep Howard maybe they can make this happen? Would the Hawks want any of the Magic Forwards? Uh….Ryan Anderson? Hedo Turkoglu? I don’t know if the Hawks would consider that though…

6. Deron Williams

The Nets are trying to trade Brook Lopez for DH so Williams will sign with them again but like all these trades, they are all so lopsided. What is Orlando going to do with JUST Brook Lopez. It seems like you’d need both of them to play. Like the whole Amare+Nash combo. Man, that was great. Those poor guys are just not the same now…nor will they ever be again! Oh Well…

And then there’s the rumor that both Williams and DH might be on the Mavs next season but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves JUST yet.

But in reality are the Magic going to get a fair trade if Howard decides to leave? Probably not. No team or player wants to leave their team without getting another star to replace them. That’s just how it is. And I don’t know how much teams are willing to give up for JUST DH.

And Williams and DH would be paid a LOT less if they were to both go to the Mavs as free agents this summer. Like I said yesterday it’s either the game or the money. If you’re in a place where you get both, you’re one lucky son of a gun. I’ll give you that much.

7. Anthony Morrow

Either the Magic are being VERY secretive about their offers to other teams or they’re stupid and haven’t made any. If DH wants new team players, you get him new team players or he’s going to be gone like Nelson’s dad in search of a pack of cigarettes.

Do you know who IS interested in Morrow? The Timberwolves. But the Nets said they’re not going to move him. The Loserwolves do need a better 3 point shooter but I guess they’re going to have to look elsewhere, just like the Magic. NEXT.

8. Stephen Jackson

In a perfect world Jackson would be playing for…no it’s not the Magic but the Nets. He wants to team up with Williams and Howard to win a championship title! Too bad neither the Nets nor the Magic want him. He’d be making $10 mil next year and that is NOT something they are in search of. Both Williams and Howard would love to play with Jackson but even though they say “Yes, Yes!” their teams say “No, No!”.

Who in the world could the Magic get to make DH happy?

I have no clue.

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.
