Finally, The Denver Nuggets & Carmelo Anthony have parted ways. Its no secret the two parties haven't been on the same terms the last few years, as the trade talks have now become public over this past NBA season. However the case may be, the Knicks now have 2 superstar players in Anthony & Stoudemire, in what could be a potential 1-2 punch combo in the big apple sports scene. From my research & understanding, Denver is trading Anthony, along with 4 other teamates; Chauncey Billups, Anthony Carter,Shelden Williams & Renaldo Balkman, all headed to New York While the Knicks part ways with Raymond Felton, Danilo Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Timofey Mozgov, the Knicks' first-round pick in 2014
& second-round picks in 2012 and 2013 originally acquired from Golden State, along with $3 million in cash. Also, in another deal, the Knicks will send unused Eddy Curry's expiring contract, along with Anthony Randolph and another $3 million, to the Minnesota's Corey Brewer. I, for one, am very interested to see how this will play out. For all parties invovled, I hope everyone got what they wanted as the saying goes, "theirs no going back". Balls in your court.
Happy Valentines Day. From Cards, candy, chocolate, roses and what not, this is the day where you see what love is all about. The good, bad, & ugly things about love, how it affects your life, and how to express it variously. Wether you have a valentine or not, we could all stand to learn a thing or to about this thing called love. What it means, how we show it, and how other emotions can cause it. But, nevertheless, these are my thoughts. Anyways, Happy Valentines day to everyone. How you & cupid deal with each other is your business. lol. Later.
Some really interesting pieces I saw....cover that are simplistic, yet innovative and different.
Courtesy of Mixtape wall.com. They have a plethora of really, nice designs their. I just like these a lot.
I watched the game, like millions around the world also. Sparingly though, I was tired from work and was doing other things on the net. Anyways, around halftime, with the Steelers down 21-3, I thought they'd find a way to pull through.I was like, "okay, i'm not gon' trip. They down by 18, but they can still comeback, put points on the board and stop Rodgers. Boy was I wrong. I mean granted they got back into the game in the 3rd quarter. But it was the crucial fumble by Pittsburg RB Mendenhall in the 4th quarter that shifted the vibe to the packers. Big Ben came close with 1:59 left in the 4th, however, the strong-faced "black & yellow" soldiers couldn't pull through. The offense failed to deliver and with the clock whinding down, the packers won the game. 31-25 was the final score.
On a side note, here's the celebratory song. Of course, you know its Lil Waynes remix to Black & Yellow, the appropriately titled, "Green & Yellow". Cover art & song at the bottom. Enjoy.lol
Like any form of entertainment or industry, their has always been a rank from the unpopular and popular.
People either like you or they don't, that's just the way it is. In sports, this has never been truer. Over the years, in sports, we've had scandals that many claim affected the way we few are sports figures, from the Barry Bonds steroids saga, to Terrell Owens quirky rants for not getting the ball, to more serious events, like the Michael Vick situation & his dogs, or Tiger Woods and his personal life exposed. Lets not forget about the Pac-Man drama(although he appears to have calmed down..lol) Granted, every one's situation was handled differently then the other and had various outcomes, but nevertheless, the public has grown a sharper eye in evaluating an athlete's moral capacity and personal behavior. I find it interesting how most of the general public hold an athlete to a higher standard of responsibility sometimes, due to them being role models, but in the process, forget that they are regular human beings like us, who if given such duplicity, are to being forgiven, if the public chooses to due so. Any who, I gotten off topic...lol..Below me, is a list of the top 10 most disliked people in the world of sports. Ranging from owners to players, this list shows how must disgust the general public has for their image, at least in the sports world. Whether we like it or not, athletes are role models. Period, point blank. They have their own reality shows, clothing lines, ad campaign, their on cereal boxes, etc. So, when your child sees your favorite boxer or quarterback get arrested at a strip club or another social event, of course their going to feel let down. Of course, as parents, you already know this. The point I wanted to make is simple: Athletes are human, just like the rest of us. Their not invincible or invulnerable to pain or image distrust. They now have to keep a third eye out because now they know. They know we're watching...waiting...for them to mess up.. To make that mistake that could potential hurt the careers.....granted, its nothing new, but in the world of technology & social media, athletes need to make smarter decisions now more than ever.
