The new Pine Tree foamposites drop shortly don’t waste ya check on them if u balling on a budget or juz gonna were them with a plain T because you got no more $ for an outfit.

Georgetown Brawl

Georgetown was making a trip through China that turned ugly on Thursday when a game between them and the Bayi Rockets, a Chinese professional team, ended in a bench-clearing brawl. The game was very physical, and with 57 free throws taken by Bayi to only 15 from Georgetown, spun out of control quickly. The game was ended when John Thompson III pulled his team off the court with the game tied at 64 midway through the 4th.

2011 NBA Season?

Now that football is back the NFL performed one of the biggest scams of this year. After four or five months of not knowing what to agree they get a deal done, then have fans wait a little while longer to ratify the decisions going forward. If you ask me the NFL knew exactly what they were doing to promote the NFL even better. With the NFL at least fans knew what areas needed to be handled as more safety, rookie contracts, possible longer season, teams salary caps, etc.

In regards to the NBA WTF!!!! After coming off one of the most electrifying NBA seasons with super teams forming and the Mavericks upsetting the Heat in the finals this past season they went into lockout. Speaking as a fan I don’t understand. Between David Stern and Billy Hunter as the representatives of the owners and players doesn’t seem much progress is being made at all. Some areas of concerns possibly are a new collective bargaining agreement, super teams, all competitive rosters equally, etc. Until some of these issues and others are solved the players have to find other things to do in the meantime.

This summer we have seen Kevin Durant ballin’ at the legendary Rucker Park, Michael Beasley smacking fans, LeBron getting dunked on in Japan, Kobe easily beating (rapper) Bow Wow in one on one at his basketball camp for $ 1M, etc. So what will it take for both sides to come together and compromise? Only time will tell.

Rolling Stones ‘King of Hip Hop’ List

Rolling Stones recently came out with their ‘King of Hip Hop’ List. They did a two and a half-year survey where they combined total number of albums sold to determine the ‘King of Hip Hop’. The list starts off as expected can’t complain much about the top 5, its 6-20 that has me scratching my head. I have a lot of problems with this list, I mean Fabolous is listed at 17 under artist like B.O.B, Pittbull, and Kid Cudi. Despite Fabolous record sales I feel he is a better artist that most ahead of him on this list. Kid Cudi and Gucci Mane are way to high on this list if they should even be on it at all, and I feel the same about Waka Flocka, Diddy and Big Boi. My problem is not with these artist makin the list, but the criteria Rolling Stones used to rank the top hip hop artist. Since when did record sales determine the greatness of a rapper? Have we forgotten to appreciate the lyrics and artistic vision of rappers? This list is evidence that record sales do not support the skills of a rapper, but more so his fan base willingness to go out and buy their albums. As a fan of hip hop its disappointing.

Trouble for The U

Reports are that The University of Miami football program has been implicated in an improper-benefits scandal allegedly involving dozens of players over much of the past decade. A former Miami booster, Nevin Shapiro (currently serving a 20 year prison sentence for masterminding a $930 million Ponzi scheme) told Yahoo Sports that he provide benefits to as much as 72 of the university’s football players and other athletes between 2002 and 2010. In the interview, Shapiro stated he gave money, cars, yacht trips, jewelry, televisions, and other gifts to a number of players. He also claims that then-Miami football and basketball coaches had full knowledge that he was braking NCAA rules. Shapiro said he once paid $10,000 to help secure the commitment of a basketball recruit, and that Frank Haith (then-Miami basketball coach) acknowledged the transaction in a conversation.

The NCAA is investigating the matter, which could lead to significant sanctions for the accomplished program. The University of Miami often refered to as ‘The U’, is known for being a football factory giving us players like: Jim Kelly, Warren Sapp, Sean Taylor, Jim Otto, Michael Irvin, Frank Gore, Ray Lewis, Devin Hester, Ed Reed, and Andre Johnson to name just a few. Miami has won five national titles since their program began in 1926, their last coming in 2001. But the program has struggled in recent years, it has also been found guilty of major violations on five occasions, most recently in 2003. This investigation could lead to the demise of a program that many of us witness dominate and produce hall of fame and pro bowl football players for most of the decade. With schools like USC and Ohio State currently on the hot seat, outsiders are beginning to notice the length at which these schools are willing to go to stay on top. Even if they have to break the rules of the NCAA.

Is it Really Over?

Now I’m not the avid golf fan, but I did appreciate all of the accomplishments Tiger Woods has acquired over his career. In this later  part of his career seems like he’s on a spiraling downfall that may never be revived. Woods hasn’t won a major championship since 2008. When all of the scandal broke on his personal life with his wife Elin Nordegren Woods the media uncovered many skeleton’s in his closet. Woods had women out the wood works come and confess to having serious relationships with him. Ever since, Woods wasn’t the same he cut off friends, lost endorsements, top ranking, invincibility towards competition, etc. Recently, Woods decided to return to the game of golf and compete, but has produced nothing but unlike prime time Tiger performances. People are used to him taking a strangle hold on the competition in the first round. By psychout his opponents or he makes remarkable comeback victories to astonish his fans. Where has that Tiger gone? Will he ever regain his dominance? I feel Tiger needs to just get away to golf for a while to repair his image, physically/mentally healthy, and his personal life more. By solidifying those areas can possibly bring his game back up to par. With the recent firing of his long time friend and caddy Stevie Williams seems like he’s riding himself of all the things that brought him success. As he continues his career I’m not ready to write him off yet, but with more lack luster performances it has no choice but to creep doubts into minds.
