|FUCK YOU, CAKES!|
I do not want to ever put up with that weather system again. GIVE IT A REST, Old Man Winter. But you know what is ELITE? Two football teams played a playoff game in that crap on Sunday night. I have so much respect for the 49ers and Packers now. They spent 4 hours smacking each other around in that while I refused to take the garbage outside. In conclusion, Cakes had to LOVE this and it is why we all hate him so very much. Let’s talk about hoops for a hot minute (just two topics but feel free to add your own).
*Ohio State played Michigan State last night in East Lansing. This is being written well before tip-off and I won’t watch the game at all because JUSTIFIED premiered last night so you all can say what you want about the game in the comments (and Justified, too). I think it’s nice that the Fuckeyes are finally playing someone though. It only took them two months to schedule a non-NAIA team. In a sport that is trending toward all the big boys playing each other in the non-conference portion of the schedule, Ohio seems to be going in the other direction. Hey, if you don’t need an RPI then what does it matter? Worse out of conference schedule: Ohio Football or Ohio Basketball? I hope that my boy, Gary Harris, beat that apple-cheeked queerbate by 50.
*Welcome to Believeland, Luol Deng! The Iron Shiek’s least favorite basketball player, Andrew Bynum and his cheeseburger tits, is now officially gone from Cleveland as Chris Grant shipped him off to Chicago for the versatile SF. The Cavs gave up 3 draft picks (2 seconds from Portland and that mythical first rounder from Sacramento that will never actually be used because it requires the Kings to not draft in the top ten). So basically, it comes down to the Cavs addressing the worst positional situation in all of sports (worse than Browns QB) with a pretty good player that plays both ends and the Bulls got cap relief and garbage picks (and can now start tanking). I see no downside here for the Cavs. I don’t want to tank. I WANT TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS. Deng can definitely help with that (the Cavs are 11-23 yet only 4.5 games out of the goddamn FIVE seed in the East). You can’t just keep tanking; eventually you have to win something. Why not now? A starting 5 of Kyrie, Waiters/Jack/Miles, Deng, TT, and Andy is pretty good if they can stay on the floor. At least now we have a legitimate #2 scorer. The only downside is if Deng balls out and Grant gives him some sort of horrible extension like 4 years/50 million or something. But I want to believe that he is too smart to do that since we need LeBron money. Because why wouldn’t the best athlete on the planet want to return to this model organization! But I’d love to hear the opinions from the side of Bulls fans (Prime and Larry…not really though so don’t feel obligated).
That will do it for today. As always, since I don’t watch a ton of hoops this time of year, feel free to insert your takes in the comments (Ide). Tomorrow, I feel like I might write-up some sort of college football year in review. I don’t know. Whatever. All I know is that Luol Deng was the missing piece to a championship and he will play great next to future Hall of Famer (and current Cavs best player) Matthew Dellavedova! Man, if he wasn’t on my team, I would hate that guy so much. LOVE U DELLY!
