I had to post this picture because this picture is hilarious!!! If you watch sportscenter you know that last night LeBron James and the Cavs visited Madison Square Garden to play the knicks, and of course a ton of celebs where in the house.

Look … love him or hate him, the dude is one of a kind crazy.  Is he really fishing through about 3k for a $1 tip?Look at that stack!!! good lord. Its like that one dolla bill doesn’t even match!

I have so many questions… What did he buy with that stack that left him with a single? Why isn’t there at least a 5 and a couple of 20s? What causes you to pull out the entire knot, when you know you have all 100s? I’m so curious about this whole situation

BTW, I like that Jumpman vest he is rockin… a couple more pics after Read more…

NBA All Star Weekend and a link or three

NBA All Star weekend was great! Everything went pretty much spot on, and the Game lived up to being one of the best ever after some early game sloppiness. I was happy that KB24 got only a little bit of burn and got on up out of there. NOLA looks like things are progressing some and things are looking up. Ironically looking at the entire weekend, I am feeling okay about making a trip down there because things are pretty much getting back to normal. there is still a ton of work that needs to be done, still a lot of healing necessary but the city is looking good again and the community is responding. Check out Simmons today, a great article for which I feel the exact same way. So much so that I think I am going to spend my birthday down there this year, forget about Miami.

espn the mag article with MJ as told to Ric Bucher, Mike gives a little bit of perspective on these young cats, and the state of the game and how it is in good hands, as long as these guys stay original and try not to become MJ or MAgic or Larry.

another espn the mag article with the best commissioner in sports today, the great David Stern. Say what you want about the guy but he has taken a sport choc full of brotha’s and made it in to arguably the second leading sport worldwide to futbol.

ok, one more espn the mag article about a problem particular still facing the league which is a major one, that its a league full of black players playing largely to a corporate read white audience, and how the perception, the perception is that basically all nba guys are rappers at heart who just happen to be able to hoop. its an interesting situation and one that needs to be explored and then explored some more.

The only problem I had was the Dwight Howard dunk, or throw in… It wasn’t even a dunk, and they turned the lights out so no-one could see that he didn’t dunk what was that about? Also, how does Shaq feel that DH just jacked his jacked nickname? Shaq even has a tattoo. And he should have lost because he had a superman onesie on.Dwight should have done the kiss the rim dunk right here.. . Its at the 30s mark.

No. 1 Knicks… Kind of

Well at least the Knicks are number one at something. According to the most recent Forbes magazines team evaluations, the New York Knickerbockers claim the top spot for the third straight year. So, at least they have the big bucks to keep payign every 6 foot 7 dude waaay too much money. They are tops at a value of $608m with the beloved Lakers in second at $560. The Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons and Dallas Mavericks fill out the top five at $500m, $477m, and $462m. The rest are:

Dallas $461m Cleveland 455m Phoenix 449m Miami 418m San Antone 405m Boston 391m

Sacramento 385m Philly 380m Toronto 373m Washington 348m Utah 342m New Jersey 338m

Indiana 333m Orlando 322m Denver 321m Golden State 309m Timberwolves 308m Grizzle 304m

Clip Joint 294m Charlotte 287m Hawks 286m New Orleans 272m Supersonics 269m Bucks 264m

Portland 253m

Check out their SportsMoney sections, they are great. Team valuations, highest paid players, team profiles… their are hidden gems all over the place like the fact that the Knicks at $608m is not even close to cracking the NFL where getting in is north of $780, CRAZY! Also,  Jerry Buss bought the Lakers for just $20m back in 1978. From $20m to $56om, that must tell you that he knows what he is doing on the business side. He definitely knew what he was doing when he passed on paying Shaq another 90. and by the way Shaq is D.U.N. done. He still may be shooting a high percentage, but watching him play damn near hurts me. Man he used to be awesome!


now.. not so much!

He got in shape for one year to spite the Lakers, but after that … nada. This was the moment it all went down hill, and judging by Shaq’sreaction, he knew it…
