Former Portland Trailblazer Brandon Roy not ruling out a comeback

Keywords: brandon roy, portland trailblazers

 

Do not, I repeat do not call it a comeback. At least not yet, according to Brandon Roy. Roy was forced into retirement due to playing for the Portland Trailblazers who are cursed. Something in Oregon blows up the knees of all the Portland greats, and Roy could not avoid being one of them.

 

 

Now Roy says he is happily retired, and who wouldn’t be with a cute kid like that. But a return is not out of the question. QUOTE TIME!

“The thing about the situation that I’m in is that I can always come back if I choose to. Having that option is always a good thing for me. I’ve been in the gym working out with Tony Wroten and you just find out how fast you miss the game. In the back of my mind, maybe this is something I may do again.”

 

Nothing definitive from Roy, yet still an inkling of hope. Well maybe its more hope from my end. Brandon Roy was always one of my favorite players, and Portland always has a place in my heart. Even though they are cursed.




Ladies of the World:  we salute you.

Keywords:  women fashion, high heels, jeans

Ladies, I present to you: “homage to womens fashion”
That’s right, here I am, just one man,  thanking you for wearing those heels.

One man, standing here with tears in his eyes, thanking you for squeezing into those jeans.

One grateful, excited, giddy man, thanking you for staring into the mirror for 55 minutes getting ready, while we throw on a pair of dirty jeans and an un-ironed tshirt.

Because while we complain about you taking forever to get ready, or complain about the obnoxious smell of your hairspray… Truth is… We are ever so grateful walking into the party with you.  If you’re not on our arm, then we’re ever so grateful that you attended the same gather as we did.  You guys got the crap-end of the stick.  No doubt about it, if you want me to level with you, truth is, I wouldn’t trade places with you guys in a million years.   You have all your women problems, your ‘monthly’ problems, your emotional problems, your everything… no thank you!  you can keep it!

However,  I must bow down and tip my hat to you in the same breath:  As fashionable as I may be, and as critical I may be of myself;  The women of this earth are the undisputed kings of the world in regards to making sacrifices to look good. THANK YOU!  No matter your size, your ‘sexy level’, or your comfort-  you continue to walk out of the house dropping the jaws of men all over the world.   No man could wear heels for 9 hours at a time. No man could deal with the pains of a tight pair of jeans.  No man could look in the mirror longer than it takes us to brush our teeth.




The Heat have been stopped dead in their tracks by the Indiana Pacers

Keywords: pacers, heat, roy hibbert

 

The Chris Bosh injury has all but dismantled the once dominant Miami Heat. A frustrated Dwyane Wade looked like he was about to fight his coach and Lebron James could not put up his MVP worthy performance. After taking down the Knicks with great…..very, very great ease, the Heat were picked by many to fly on through to the Finals.

 

 

There were a lot of things stopping Miami last night, the main thing however was the toughness of the Pacers. Danny Granger got physical with everyone he touched last night and it was enough to get Lebron off his game. The real star though was Roy Hibbert with his 19 points, 18 rebounds, and 5 blocks. If the Pacers big players can continue playing large then it might just be enough to upset the Heat. And once again, make Lebron James look like the anti-clutch.




Kim’s outfit from a party during Cannes sure looks familiar…

Keywords: kim kardashian, gwyneth paltrow, emilio pucci

Kim looked gorgeous in this Emilio Pucci number during one of P. Diddy’s parties at Cannes this week, but this outfit sure does look familiar….

Gwyneth Paltrow wore this same exact ensemble to the Emmys last September. This outfit landed Gwynny on a number of best dressed lists, and I am sure Kim wasn’t oblivious to this. So we know that Kim is a Kopycat, but the real question is who wore it best? I personally think Kim’s curves brought a new life to the look, who do you think wore it better?




Celtics get T’ed up 5 times as the Refs lead the Heat to a game 1 win

Keywords: doc rivers, celtics, heat

The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat are my two least favorite teams in the NBA. That being said, I am still willing to admit that the Celtics got absolutely robbed last night. Boston received 5 Technicals, the final one coming from coach Doc Rivers who was only seen to be saying “cmon” to the ref. Here is what Rivers had to say.

 

“I know mine wasn’t deserved. I can tell you that much,  I don’t know how long I’ve been in this league, but that has to rank as the worst I’ve ever had. I would have loved to earn it. We should never get them anyway. I told our guys that. But everybody has to keep their composure. Not just the players and coaches.”




Seriously, what’s with their wardrobes over there?

Keyword: apple, steve jobs, tim cook, iphone 5

uhhhhhhhhhh is anyone else sensing a pattern here?  And i’m not talking about the phones.

Apple finally released word that on Tuesday, Oct. 4, newly appointed CEO Tim Cook will make his first lengthy public appearance to unveil the upcoming iPhone 5. Quickly, i’ll just say that I am first in line for the iphone 5, I have been a Blackberry and Droid user for the past 4 years and I’m finally making the switch. I’m ecstatic about the news and anxious to hear what else is discussed.

With that being said- let’s talk about Fashion!    Seriously, am I the only one who read this news and instantly thought “oh my god, Tim Cook wears almost the same exact outfits that Steve Jobs did.  Old school classic jeans, (optional) belt, and some sort of dark colored shirt on top.   One of the most profitable companies in the world, and they send their CEO’s out on stage dressed like they’re working behind the scenes at some high  school theatre performance.

Don’t worry Tim, don’t worry Steve, you’re allowed to dress up nicely when you are presenting the world with a product they have been begging for.  I am all for keeping it neat and conservative, but come on guys, atleast throw a little color in there to let me know you’re alive!

Now, give us an iPhone 5 … NOW!!!  We have been waiting foreeeeever.  My Blackberry freezes and resets itself like 14 times a day for no reason and I can’t take it anymore!




Mike Woodson has propelled the Knicks to 4 straight victories, but is this really what they needed?

Keywords: mike woodson, quitting, mike dantoni, carmelo anthony, john shmeelk

I have never been more disgusted with a four game winning streak that has produced numerous blowouts. It is clear that the Knicks quit on Mike D’Antoni. The head coach should not have to resign before the team decides they actually want to try to win. Now some credit does have to go to new coach Mike Woodson. Woodson is a defensive minded coach with a system very different than D’Antoni. As much as I respect the work of Woodson, his presence should not have made the difference in the Knicks becoming a contender again. Yesterday I came across an article by John Shmeelk of CBS Sports. The following quote is from that piece, and it has a bit of a startling connotation.

 

“Anthony said over the last three games, his focus “was to have an energy that I haven’t had so far this season.” “Especially on the defensive end,” Anthony said. “Everybody on this team knows, everybody in the world knows I can score the basketball. It’s not that important to me. As far as on the defensive end, just showing my teammates that the effort is there, giving that extra effort. And as a result, everybody’s been feeding off of that.”

 

Again thank you to Shmeelk for bringing this to the attention of Knicks fans. This quote really does say a lot about Carmelo Anthony. He plain and simply admits that he was not giving a full effort under coach D’Antoni. This is the face of the Knicks franchise, this is the man that the Knicks traded their entire team to acquire, and this guy has the audacity to only play hard when it is convenient for him. I could go on and on berating Melo for his selfishness, but at this point everything speaks for itself. On an attempt to be positive (or negative depending on how you look at it) Toney Douglas finally saw some action for the Knickerbockers. Nothing showed up in the stat line but he did look like he was giving his 100%, something we cant say for some Knicks.
