The Raptors just threw away their next season

June 9, 2009

Not like they even had one.

They were 33-49 for the best 3-point shooter in the world last season.

And the best free-throw shooter, and best lincoln high school product.

But they just threw away their best shooter and got another rebounder.

now that they have 3 big me, they’ll be way worse.

And theres nobody on the perimeter for Jose Calderon to pass to.

so they’ll probably win 20-25 games, if they’re lucky.

And then Bosh will leave in the off-season because he’s obviously tired of playing on a trash team.

So they threw away their franchise too.

In the attempt to clear up space for cap room for the super anticipated but won’t be that great 2010 off-season, they threw everything away.

Philly however, wasn’t gonna make a move anyway but now that they have a dangerous shooter on the perimeter for AI and Andre Miller.

And elton brand will stop hurting himself because the legendary Kapono is on his team.

Philly will be about a 4 or 5 seed next season, and will be in the eastern semis or even finals.

Write it down!

That’s my call.

this was the convo where the title A.I. in philly was passed down. How touching

The NBA Finals!!1!

June 4, 2009

Tonight, the anticipated NBA Finals begin.

Orlando Magic vs. Los Angeles Lakers.

There is so much going on, and i’ll break down EVERYTHING that is important.

If its not on here, don’t worry about it.

Speaking of all those Q’s and not worrying about it, the first big topic is Kobe’s inability to get a title without Shaq.

They won 3 together, and Shaq left and won a 4th with Miami.

Kobe got straight up dommed last year in the finals, and is “looking for revenge”.

Psh.

Apparently winning a title without Shaq isn’t important to him, he just wants another.

Even Shaq twittered on the subject: “I am saying it today and today only, I want kobe bryant to get number four, spread da word.”

That is a direct quote, not me trying to use ebonics over the computer.

So now that Shaq’s pulling for him he’s automatically going to win right?

No.

Kobe ALWAYS tries to do the opposite of what Shaq says.

Shaq says trade me, Kobe says stay in LA.

etc.

Shaq says win title, Kobe says i’ll throw it.

Knowing that, Orlando will win the series.

Call your bookies!

2. Jameer Nelson coming back?!?!

He probably will but play scarce minutes, and I don’t think he should come back.

Stan Van Man has said he doesn’t think him coming back will tinker with the chemistry.

He won’t demolish it, but it will change.

Rafer “Reefer” Alston has been playing well and Anthony Johnson has been doing everything a 50-year-old in disguise can. Not to mention Courtney Lee using Rip Hamilton’s old mask to tear up the game.

Throwing another guard in changes the rotation, even for a little.

They get rest, but a guy who hasn’t played in a few months takes their spot.

If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it, right?

Don’t try to fix the Magic.

They’ll repeat next season with Jameer at the point.

Orlando is a pretty streaky team usually, because if the 3-ball is off, they lose.

But almost every game this postseason they have been on.

Can they keep it up?

Why not, it’s a magical run right now. (Get it?)

I love Mickael Pietrus.

He’s an all-around G.

When lil wayne asks what G is, the answer is Mickael Pietrus.

Just look at the name folks!!!!

is he a fan of 30's as well??

is he a fan of 30's as well??

He can even throw punches with the best of them.

Golden State Warriors' Mickael Pietrus of France, wears oversized boxing gloves during a film shoot on media day.

How punny, and I even used the exact caption from the picture on the internet.

Go Mag.

P.S. Fun fact, the Magic have beaten the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers.

If they beat the Fakers they will have beaten three 60-win teams in one postseason, which has never been done before.

History is on their side.

Milton Bradley vs. Umpires

June 2, 2009

Recently the beloved Milton Bradley of the Chicago Cubs has been in the news.

Surprise surprise.

Here, he’s complaining about umpires being out to get him.

“What am I supposed to do? You lead the American League in OPS, and two years in the top three in the league in on-base percentage. All of a sudden now, I come to Chicago and I can’t see the ball no more? I don’t know a strike from a ball?

– Milton

What a glorious quote.

He thinks it began when he argued with one umpire, and the others are plotting against him because he disagreed with their colleague.

Top notch conspiracy theory Milton.

That also coming from the Milton Bradley that struck out on two pitches.

yupppp

I think he’s trying to go with a “me against the world” mentality, and sure hope it works for him.

I loved him in Texas.

Besides, that mentality has worked for everyone from the 1980 Miracle Team to Britney Spears + Madonna.

Maybe Milton “Monopoly” Bradley should shave his head with Britney.

Or make out with Lou Piniella.

I would NOT pay to see that.

I’d pay to see him write a song with some upires, thats wassup.

all that's missing is milton. The 3 of them could talk it out in close quarters

Milton also is the man who tore his ACL arguing with an UMPIRE over a call at first base.

Maybe he is trying to instigate with them.

Whatever, he’s a nut.

That’s why you love him.

Plus he created america’s game, monopoly.
