A Winter Sports Extravaganza

"Worst HJ ever"--Shook's Son
No time for bullshit lead-in paragraphs today.  We need to get to the headlines because the quicker that I talk about the NBA, the quicker you will be done reading about it.  Make sense?

*Carmelo Anthony is taking his talents to Manhattan
-I'm definitely happy that this saga is finally over but let's take a closer look at this.  Say what you will about the Heat (and I've said plenty), but those assholes knew what they were doing.  They knew that all three of them couldn't make max money for the logistics to work so they took less (albeit still a fortune) and are now able to play tummy-sticks for the next however many years.  Now let's look at how Amare and Melo did it.  Amare took the money and ran this summer.  I think it was 5 years for 100 million or something.  Carmelo made it a point to demand the 3 yr/65 mill extension before a trade could happen.  So instead of taking less money to ensure that either Chris Paul or D-Will would follow them to NY in a few years, they took the greedy and stupid way out by commanding over 40 million dollars of the Knicks' cap room (which is definitely going to go down this summer) for the next three years.  The players were so selfish and the Knicks were so desperate that they just priced themselves out of a top flight point guard.  This just goes to show that even with great talent, the Knicks are still a dumpster fire and athletes are still fucking morons.  Why wasn't anyone around to say to the two superstars, "Hey guys, I know that you want to get paid, but if you each take ten million less over the course of your contract, you can play with CP3 in a year."  NAAAAAAH!  PAY ME, BITCH!
-Why did no one tell these two about the MASSIVE STATE TAXES IN NEW YORK!!!  It boggles the mind why anyone would want to play there when they could play in the taxbreak haven of El Paso or Sarasota!
-These rumors that Isiah Thomas still has a lot of pull with the Knicks are more than just bizarre.  He was awful in every facet, got sued, and coaches Florida International right now.  Yet some people think that he made this deal happen.  How is this possible?  Is he fucking Charles Dolan?  Was this part of the condition for him not to kill himself and then blame it on his daughter?

*Deron Williams is taking his talents to Siberia
-Is New Jersey an upgrade over Utah?  I don't know.  I actually like this deal for the Nets more than I like the Melo deal for the Knicks.  D-Will is arguably the best PG playing and it only cost them a worse PG, an unknown rookie, and a couple of picks.  I believe that this still leaves them money to go out and get a stud soon to pair with Deron and Lopez.  You could do a lot worse than that for a foundation.
-But that is all for nothing if he doesn't sign an extension with the Nets.  I like the risk by the Communist, but that is a really big fucking risk that could blow up in his face like whoa.
-Ian Thomsen nailed it like usual, this current bullshit trend of superstars not wanting to work hard for a ring and colluding with their buddies to make it easier is definitely going to lead to a lockout.  Good.  These fuckfaces are ruining the competitiveness of the league and it needs to stop now (despite what fagboy Cowherd would lead you to believe).  It's why we should all be rooting for a Spurs/Bulls Finals since they built their teams the right way.  Fuck it, we should root for an Anyone but the Lakers/Anyone but the Heat Finals.

*Ohio State Fans are taking their whining to the internet
-The Buckeyes killed Illinois the other night by 19 points but you wouldn't think so if you signed on to my Facebook account after the game.  Take Damman for example.  He put down his box of tissues to unleash this tard thought:
I love how the Big 10 refs continually let Sullinger get beat to hell under the hoop and never call anything.
WAAAAAAAH!!!  We just killed a team but it doesn't matter because our superstar post player didn't get to the free throw line at all!!!  How dare uber-strongman Mike Tisdale karate chop him in the throat for 40 minutes!!!  This is worse than 9/11!!!
-When was the last time that you said "that was a well officiated ball game".  Maybe once a year?  College refs are usually "terrible" in the minds of the fan anyway and it's just something that we all deal with.  But wouldn't you rather have a game where the refs swallow their whistles over a game that has 70 free throws?  I know that I would.  Sullinger is a big boy, he can handle his own shit in the paint.  Keep in mind that if they aren't calling fouls in his favor then they probably aren't calling fouls against him either.  Rational thought is my expertise.
-Complaining about the refs after a 19 point win...this is why everyone hates Buckeye fans.

*The CBJ are taking their talents all the way to the Stanley Cup(?)
-Holy shit, the Jackets are on goddamn fi-ah!  Since I can't stomach watching the Cavs anymore, I'm glad that I have a hockey team to live and die with now.  And since Nash and the boys are fighting like all hell to get into the playoffs and thus making every game a must win, this is some pretty fun and entertaining shit.  The Jackets are on a roll and look to be buyers at the deadline although I don't know who they can get that can get them over the hump.  Huselias, Klesla, and Filatov are all probably available since the young guns have been outstanding recently.  Clitsome and Calvert have been amazing.
-All I know is this is a really fun team that plays hard every night.  Thoughts, Drew?  I've said it before and I will continue to shout it out loud, if the Jackets were in the Eastern Conference where they belong, they would be a shoe-in for the Cup playoffs as opposed to grinding it out with a million other teams for 3-4 spots like they currently are.  Stupid fucking Bettman.

There.  Was that so painful?  I'm sorry but the NBA really is the only entity producing stories in the sporting news cycle right now.  That's why I had to insult Ohio State fans.  Just to make sure that you were still paying attention.  And because it's warranted.  It's always warranted.  Warrant is best known for "Cherry Pie" but everybody knows that "The Down Boys" was the superior song.

As always, the voice of reason. Well, except for that CBJ Stanley Cup nonsense.

GMoney said...

Whoa whoa whoa. Even I'm not that delusional to say they can win it, but I do think that they will make the playoffs.

Month and moon for the overrated Baron and the Clips lottery pick this year? Oh hells fucking yes. This is how you rebuild the right way.

For the record I posted that about halfway through the 1st half not after the game was over. It was still fresh in my mind after he got mugged continually at Purdue.

*Knicks......I hope the Amare/Melo thing turns into a complete disaster. I'm talking Amare's legs blowing out and Melo getting real fat on his new contract. Really good chance it happens too.

*I love the Deron trade even if it was quite the risk for The Russian. He drove up the Melo price so much even though he really had no shot at him and then got a player better than Melo. That's Russian swag. I think I read the Nets are going to be something like $ 22M under the cap too...so they can add something nice.

*Was that Mo for Baron trade the first time somebody was ever angry for being traded from the Clippers and the person goign to the Clippers was happy that he's going to the Clippers? I think so.

*Let it be known that this Ohio State fan did not whine at all about the officials...can't remember the last time I did actually.

*As for the Jackets, they definitely are on a roll and it's amazing how jumbled up the West is from 5-12. I'll believe the Jackets are buyers at the deadline when I see it.

I'd really like the Red Wings to catch the Canucks for the # 1 seed, but I'm now more worried about them keeping the fucking Sharks from grabbing our two seed.

I hate people who whine about refs. Mr Ace is by far the worst I've ever seen at this. Just go back and read that shitty blog he used to write!

Wisconsin just banked in another game winning 3..

Michigan just qualified for another NIT...

Any time you can get a lotto pick from the clips, you take it.

I'm getting my hopes up for sullinger and erving being the next stockton and malone.

Drew said...

Except this draft is gonna suck with many underclassmen staying in school due to the impending lockout.

Sullinger won't even be in this draft....mark that shit down.

GMoney said...

Awww that's cute. You believe in hoops cecil newton.

MuDawgfan said...

After the ridiculous pass interference call in the 2002 BCS Championship - Buckeye fans shouldn't complain about the refs in any sport for the next 20 years.

Thanks for the ignorant comment, mudawg. If you really want to nit pick the refs in that game, OSU would have won in regulation.

Uh oh, dawg, now you've gone and done it!

Nice double comment, queer. Post it three more times and you can be as cool as me.

3/3/11...trivia will change forever

Drew said...

Hoops Cecil Newton? What the fuck are you talking about?

The Iceman said...

I bet you can't wait to watch an uninterested Baron Davis mope up and down the court for half a season G$. I've heard it's a pretty incredible thing to witness. Watching Davis play point on that team will be the same as watching a video of a guy banging a washed up female porn actress. You can just read the body language..."why couldn't this have happened 2 years ago when this bitch was still hot?"

GMoney said...

I assume that Satch is just like Cecil because all blak people are the same.

I'm very excited too see some depressed Baron, too. Although if he was smart, he would bust his ass so that other teams might want him.

The Iceman said...

Baron Davis?? Smart?! I can't believe you would even suggest that.

Drew said...

John Fox just named Orton the starter over Tebow in Denver!

The Iceman said...

Looks like another year of shitty football in Colorado. Is Fox trying to get fired after one season?
