KWAME BROWN’S LESBIAN BAR REHAB

5 weeks after reconstructive surgery on his left ankle and 1 week since surgery on his right shoulder, Kwame Brown looks good to go.. To the club. He was spotted at the Here Lounge in West Hollywood last Thursday, enjoying himself to the fullest. While primarily a gay men’s bar, Thursday nights at the Here Lounge is for the ladies.

Here are 2 pieces of good news for Laker fans. Good News#1: Kwame wasn’t bouncing around on the ankle. He was playing the wall and dancing with two ladies at the same time. He wasn’t raisin’ the roof or walkin it out, just gettin’ his freak on. Good News#2: This happened after Kobe’s shopping center video rant. KB24 woulda had another reason to talk about “fucked up situations”.

I’m a fan of the girls that like to party with girls so I’m not knockin’ the former #1 overall pick for this. I’m sayin though, if you mix Kwame Brown, scoring problems, lesbian bar, Michael Jordan allegedly calling Brown a flaming faggot, and Phil Jackson’s comments together, you get one helluva punchline.

**Shout out to Bad Gyrl for the tip**

SPURS/CAVS GAME 3 RECAP: I WAS WRONG

Posted by HG on June 13, 2007

Remember when these “Trophy Love” commercials were all the rage? The thing that always bothered me is that the name of the NBA trophy is the “Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy”… It seemed weird to me that all of those cats were in love with someone named Larry. Anyways…

The San Antonio Spurs are on the verge of capturing their 4th LOCT, and LeBron James is about to have a long summer. In a game that was viewed by many as Cleveland’s best chance to take one from San Antonio, both teams put the scoring on hold and locked down on coughcough defense. Tim Duncan played only 33 minutes and Cleveland still couldn’t capitalize meaning my predicition of Spurs in 6 is gonna need a miracle in order to see the light of day.

Here’s a few other things I was wrong about:

  1. “Tim Duncan is the Finals MVP”. I’m not completely wrong on this but Parker is probably the leader for the award right now. If the Spurs wrap up the series in game 4 and TD has a big game, Duncan could still be the MVP.
  2. “Cleveland wins their first game at home”. It was all there for the Cavs to take but they couldn’t hit an open shot to save their lives… Or their series. Tim Duncan had the foul trouble that I thought he would, but Cleveland’s scoring trouble was the bigger factor.
  3. “We are all entertained”. The ratings suggest that very few of us are entertained but let’s not rush to make this an NBA issue. People just aren’t watching sports the same anymore. You can look at the World Series declining ratings here or flashback to 2006 when game 1 of the World Series flopped. Everyday can’t be Superbowl Sunday.

As for LeBron handing off to Anderson down the stretch of game 3, I honestly believe he expected to get the ball back. Unfortunately for LBJ, Floppy Jao took matters in to his own hands and frankly, he’s gotta make that basket… And LeBron was fouled by Bruce Bowen at the end of the game. There’s no question about it. The continuation call could have gone either way but James should have gone to the line for at least two free throws.

The biggest thing I’m taking away from this series is that if Cleveland’s front office can get LeBron a Scottie Pippen, the Cavs will rule the East for years. All of the players on the Cavalier roster are role players. There’s no Scottie Pippen, there’s no Dennis Rodman. There’s nobody else on the roster that the other team has to truly worry about. Michael Jordan was surrounded by the right mix of players to highlight his talents. Danny Ferry and company need to do the same for LeBron.

Cavaliers And Spurs Final(ly)

HIP HOP AND IT’S NBA COUNTERPARTS

Posted by HG on May 31, 2007

chuck-d-basketball.jpg

Jay-Z/Michael Jordan: Jay donned himself the MJ of rap and everybody rolled with it. Both are considered by many to be the greatest to ever do it in their fields.. although Jay and MJ came out of retirement with performances that made us wish they had stayed away. Whether its Tupac/Biggie/Rakim or Magic/Bird/Wilt, somebody will use one of those names in an argument against Sean Carter or Michael Jordan. They’re similar all the way down to their work ethic and figure head positions.

Dr. Dre/Phil Jackson: If you’re having a problem getting your project or your team to the next level these are the guys you want to call. Phil Jax has the rings, Dre has the plaques. Lately, neither has shown a sense of urgency about current projects, and will let cats sit on the bench for no given reason.

 Eminem/Larry Bird: White guys that dominated the “Brothas Game”. If Bird was a teenager today he’d be listening to Em’s “Lose Yourself” on his mp3 player while warming up before some AAU tournament.. Their forays into the front office have brought mixed results. Both lost a close teammate recently.

Young Buck/Stephen Jackson: Neither are superstars but they’re valuable parts on a team.. Opponents get nervous just thinking about ’em. They will both have your back in a scrap no questions asked, and both show glimpses of greatness that they can’t reach consistently.

Ice Cube/Doctor J: They took an element of their fields and raised it to new heights.. Gangsta rap and the dunk contest are boring now, but their contributions will always be remembered. They get mentioned in top ten lists and occasionally somebody will call them the greatest ever. Does a parallel between the ABA and the late 80s West Coast rap scene work?

Dame Dash/Isiah Thomas: They were critical parts of great teams in the past. Their independent ventures are unsuccessful whether it’s a league or a record label.. Both would get 85 cents back on change for a dollar, but somehow always land on their feet.

50 Cent/Kobe Bryant: Kobe’s balling skills are 100 times better than 50’s rapping skills, but that’s not the comparison I’m making. They’re the two most polarizing people in their professions. Hate ’em or Love ’em you can’t deny Kobe’s hoop game or 50’s business game. You never have to wait long to hear their names in the news, and they both go for 50 every night.

Here’s a few outside of the NBA…

Ras Kass/Ken Griffey Jr: Two dudes that seemed like mortal locks to be in the greatest of all time argument. Both are still decent but neither was able to maximize their potential. You have to worry if they’ll get hurt or hurt themselves when they walk outside.

DMX/Mike Tyson: Drugs, jail and wildin out. Check, check and check. Both exploded onto the scene. Both imploded when they reached the top and eventually went to Arizona to chill out. You shouldn’t let either of the two borrow your car.

LL Cool J/Brett Favre: Their contributions to the game have to be recognized but LL and Brett are currently over staying their welcome. Aside from padding their numbers, neither has any business performing anymore.

SCREWING AROUND WITH YOU TUBE

Posted by HG on May 3, 2007

Sometimes I go to You Tube and combine phrases that don’t go together just to see what videos pop up. For example, I put “apple swimming” in the search and came up with this video:

Not a bad find.. Not bad at all… Let’s try “michael jordan gambling”. I know those words actually go together, but I figured it would be highly unlikely for a vid of Jordan at the blackjack table to pop up….

You know…”Cooking With Bigfoot” is a funny concept. The video didn’t quite live up to my expectations.

The next video didn’t require any searching. I know the fellas over at KSK posted this last year but I can never get enough of Quantum Boggs. Wade Boggs traveling back in time to help Dan Marino win the Superbowl.. Fucking hilarious.. The vid gets NSFW for a hot sec at the 2:45 mark.

There are so many classic lines in Quantum Boggs I find it impossible to pick a favorite. “Fuck you Wade!!”, “Get that case of Natti Ice I sent ya?”, “Stop ashing in my car”, and “Wayne that is single A shit right there” crack me up. Wade threatening Dan’s elderly, lawn watering pops puts me on the floor everytime. If you didn’t enjoy that video “I’m gonna numchucks you in the face”. Destiny muthafucka… POW!!
