Knicks – A Genius Franchise?

It looks like the screwball owner that goes by the name of James “homoerotic Isiah-Lover” Dolan has turned a corner. He has finally heeded the advice of his senior president Donnie Walsh. By the time NY Vinnie gets back he won’t even recognize this genius franchise! The New York Post columnist Marc Berman writes on page 63 (yes it was buried) that former Nuggets general manager Mark Warkentien has been retained as the Knicks top basketball consultant. Perhaps this finally puts the nail in Isiah Thomas’s coffin. This acquisition in the front office sets the stage for a Carmelo Anthony acquisition. Mark Warkeintien and Carmelo Anthony have formed quite the cozy relationship. Finally after years of misery the City that never sleeps has got reasons to be excited. Another bona-fide star may be coming to help Amare carry the load. Even if Marky Mark doesn’t pull of the coup d’état for Anthony he is a talented executive who may be the heir apparent for the aging and frail Donnie Walsh. With a successor now in place the Knicks management can continue to rebuild the franchise that Isiah...

CP3 – What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas!

Monday mornings in February. Well, technically it’s January but you catch my drift. As I peruse the headlines I found a piece on thepenaltyflagblog stating that Vegas and the Hornets might find a meeting of minds. To be frank I remember reading that the Hornets met their attendance benchmarks they needed to keep the franchise in New Orleans. However, I don’t think the NBA wants to continue to own the Hornets. It is definitely a conflict of interest. I’m a Vegas lover! There is nothing better then gambling at the Casino Royale at $5 BJ tables and getting a $1.99 footlong hotdog! Add to that the ability to watch NBA level basketball and Vegas becomes an even more enticing vaca spot. I would love the ability to take in a game and not lose all my mula in one long drunk gambling spree! No Casino Royale didn’t pay me for this plug. I just love the bleeping place! Won my first $500 bet there all liquored up one night! Thepenaltyflagblog made some good arguements about how well bball attendance is over at the Thomas and Mack center for the UNLV rebels. If a college team draws that well I could see an NBA franchise doing better. Especially, because they would be the only show in town. Just look how well San Antonio does as the only pro team. Can you imagine the bright light big city effect the Hornets would get with CP3 and company? Just saying to would be a success! Especially if they were ballsy enough to put an arena right on the strip!...

Kevin Garnett Uses Terrorist Reference

NY Vinnie has always said Kevin Garnett is a thug. I have always defended KG. That was until his Villenueva cancer comments. At that point I saw the light and crossed over to his thugness. This weekend’s comments reinforced lebasketbawl’s thoughts. This is the second time this year his “smack talk” has gotten him into hot water. In my eyes Garnett is officially a prick. Thedleague is reporting the following: After the Celtics win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, allegedly a Laker ballboy asked Garnett for an autograph. According to ESPN’s JA Adande, Garnett replied with: “You’ve got a better chance of catching Bin Laden.” Now the said tweet has been deleted from Adande’s twitter feed, hence the reason for the alleged reference. This is a total disgrace. I blog for various sites. I worship the ground Kobe Bryant walks on. I respect the franchises of San Antonio, Los Angeles, Portland, and Sacramento. I was an army brat’s kid. Why do I vomit out this information? Simple. A ball boy from LA may be a fan of Boston. Who knows the kid could have been forced to relo for his father’s job in this horrific economy. The punk/thug that goes by the name of Kevin Garnett should not be referencing a terrorist Bin Laden. Many people in this world have lost their mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters in this “war on terror.” Kevin Garnett should respect the game of basketball and not compare it to the horrible losses we have experienced. Its one thing to tell the ball boy “no”. Its another to compare his chances at getting an autograph to “Bin...

Lakers and Losing- A Shock to the System

Ya’all know that Kobe is my bitch. I love Mr Bryant. Last night he overtook Hakeem “the dream” Olajuwon for eighth place all-time in scoring. Too bad Kobe’s 38 points didn’t help translate into a win. My knockoff second fav team took out my boys. The dismal second-rate Sactown Kings took out Black Mamba and the Lake. The Lakers now stand at 33-14 and are the second best team in the west. That is the part I’m having trouble with – “second best.” The Spurs are 39-7 and are still on pace for my predicted 70 win season. Here at lebasketbawl I dismissed Jerry West’s comments about the Laker D failing. No longer can I dismiss the great Jerry West. The Lakers D was atrocious last night against the Kings. They allowed Samuel Dalembert and Demarcus Cousins to look like Shaquille O’Neal and Kareem in their prime. That is a disgrace and Lakers fans should be angry. Really angry! How do you allow the 11-33 Kings to embarrass you on your home floor?  The Kings couldn’t even believe they won! Phil Jackson better kick his team where it hurts! The Lakers play Boston on Sunday and they are a 35 win team. In case your counting that is 2 more wins then my vaunted Lakers. Lets review the box score from last night’s debacle. Kobe – 38 points, 7 assists- job well done. Shannon Brown- 17 points in 25 mins. Nice work off the bench. Artest- 4 points, 2 turnovers- disgraceful! Odom – 4 points in 30 minutes! Stop tapping that 2nd rate piece of Kardashian and get your head in...

Tracy Morgan And Barkley On TNT: Sarah Palin Good Masturbation Material!

I told my boy Cousin Paulie that I was going to write a quality piece today. Instead, I just can’t help myself. NY Vinnie would have a STROKE if he were in the States and read this. I totally missed this event and I thank blacksportsonline for enlightening me! They have the actual video on their site so feel free to gander over. Kenny and Chuck are having this debate as to who is better-  Tina Fey or Sarah Palin? Then Kenny asks Tracy Morgan his thoughts. Chuck chimes in and says: Sarah Palin is good looking ain’t she? Chuck opened the door and Tracy Morgan slammed it closed. A split second later Tracy Morgan says: Let me tell you something, Sarah Palin is good masturbation material Ernie quickly ends the segment as Charles is in hysterics and Kenny calmly chuckles. I have one word for this entire sequence – hilarious! This is why I love TNT and Chuck Barkley. Keep this group together because they find a way to give us laughs. Not only about the NBA but current events as well! —-as a complete side note Gilbert Arenas is spending 5k a month feeding his sharks. This just confirms my undying belief that he is mentally...
