*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:
-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.
