LeBron's Just Like Mike...
...Michael Jackson that is.
Just like it was Michael...and them in the Jackson 5, it's LeBron...and them on the Cleveland Cavaliers. And shoot...his supporting cast ain't even his real brothers!!!
Albeit...Bron Bron didn't have a good game last night. Ok, he sucked, shooting just 2-of-11 for 10 points, as the Mavericks won, 92-74. But if you're watching that game last night, you had to shake your head. You know LeBron will quickly snap out from that little funk and average a damn-near triple dub all the way through the rest of the season. But what's his supporting cast going to do!? Not a damn thing! (Word to Tito and Larry Hughes).
I put anything on the fact that James will be ballin for Brooklyn in three years. Guar-damn-teed! It's like this cat's already doing the moonwalk, while the rest of his teammates are learning how to two-step (and there's nothing wrong with that). LeBron needs help...more than Britney. Hee, Hee!
Nuggets 120, SuperSonics 103
Yo, in case you never seen Kevin Durant ball in college, at 6-9 and 215 pounds, this dude is dumb long on an NBA court. I'm talking Inspector Gadget-type reach, ya dig? Last night in his NBA debut, Durant struggled from the field, shooting just 7-of-22, and finished with 18 points. But Durant's going to be just fine. As long as Seattle really defines his true role and position, he'll be fine. But damn, Carmelo Anthony sure buckled down his defense on the rook. Anthony finished with 32 points, A.I. added 25 points and 14 assists and Marcus Camby cleaned up on the boards, pulling in 15. Let's not forget that Iverson played only 35 games with Carmelo last season. This season, them running the floor for the whole year means more chemistry and a problem for the rest of the teams in the L.
Magic 102, Bucks 83
Everyone is talking about the Celtics landing KG and Jesus Shuttleworth. Well, peeps tend to forget that the Magic got Rashard Lewis and that man ain't no slouch. Last night he poured in a game-high 26 points and Dwight Howard did what he always does: a double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds.
Moving on, yesterday, when asked about the Knicks NBA Commissioner David Stern told ESPN:
"It demonstrates that they're not a model of intelligent management. There were many checkpoints along the way where more decisive action would have eliminated this issue."
Damn, I could have told you that the Knicks weren't intelligent more than a minute ago. James Dolan doesn't give a S**t about New York fans. Isiah Thomas fronts like he could win. He can't. Stephon Marbury, although he love the kids, is a cancer on any NBA squad. Lil Wayne once said, "You see me with my Marbury posture/I don't play ball I point guard every dollar." That's pretty much Marbury for you. Here, peep the :47 mark of Weezy's freestyle.
