Trade In This Post For Some Real NBA Analysis

leave a comment »

So what’s my opinion of the recent trading activity in the NBA?

Uhhh…

Carmelo Anthony going to the Knicks just seemed weird. If Anthony REALLY wanted to go to the Knicks, just wait until next year so the Knicks could keep their roster in tact. Sure he may have the opportunity to make less money if he signs as a free agent with a new collective bargaining deal in place, but if you REALLY want to go play somewhere woudn’t it be worth it to take less money and have a better core of players to partner up with?

Then again, I have no clue who the Knicks actually gave up. And if Chauncey Billups is part of the team’s long-term plans, then the Knicks may have done the right thing.

Then there was the Jazz trading that Williams guy to the Nets. Yeah, “that Williams guy” in the NBA. That’s like saying “that Smith person” in my phone book. After Jerry Sloan resigned as the Jazz head coach, I was surprised that Utah traded away the player who it seemed was feuding with Jerry. I never had a problem with Sloan, but I could tell he was an old-school asshole (I’m using “asshole” in a positive way, mind you) that didn’t take anybody’s shit. For some reason, I doubt that persona would go over well with some of today’s professional athletes. One reason I think Sloan lasted as long as he did was because for much of his career he had his two superstars — Karl Malone and John Stockton — who seemed like players who would buy into his coaching style. Anyway, for Jersey’s sake, I hope Williams doesn’t bolt for another team when he becomes a free agent.

What else happened this trading season? I dunno. A bunch of people I never heard of got moved. I have no idea who’s good anymore. If a person got traded for some first-round picks, I assumed they were of prominence. Oh, there was that Perkins guy from Boston who went to Oklahoma for some guy. *shrug*

It’s funny. When I was a kid/teenager, I used to religiously follow this stuff in all leagues. Now I’m indifferent.

Oh, Mike Bibby went to the Heat after having his contract bought out by the Wizards. I like Bibby. Too bad I now have to pull against him now that he signed with Le Heat. Oh, that game I just watched was great.

Following their 87-86 loss to the Chicago Bulls, the Miami Heat are upset. So upset, in fact, that a few of them are crying in the locker room.

According to Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, via ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, “some Heat players are crying in the locker room at the moment.” That tidbit was also confirmed by South Florida Sun-Sentinel beat writer Ira Winderman, who tweeted that Spoelstra said, “There are a couple of guys crying there in the locker room.”

Every time LeBron misses a game-winning shot the Baby Jesus weeps … tears of joy. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. It’s amazing how much my opinion of James has changed. I used to really like the guy, and now I don’t care for him at all. It wasn’t because he chose to take his talents to South Beach — who can fault anybody for wanting to leave Cleveland? It’s because of the way he acts whenever his team is in the lead and how he acts whenever his team loses a big game or a playoff series. If you’re going to joke around and show-up the other team when the going’s good, then man up and be a good sport when your team gets bested.

Where was I going with this? Oh, yeah. NBA trades. Well there you have it.

Life’s a Gas

leave a comment »

So here’s something that has me curious. The price of gasoline has gone up pretty high as of late.

Where’s the media outcry about these uber-high prices?

Where are the constant stories about how horrible $3.50-4/gallon gas is for the U.S.?

I’m baffled beyond belief as to the lack of coverage that was such a big f’n deal back in 2006 and then again in 2008. And it’s obvious who’s at fault.

The Kenyan Koffee Fetcher.

In the midst of the HUSSEIN RECESSION, the Non-Dialect Negro has gone from bowing to his fat-cat Arab leaders pals over there in the Middle East to increasing their profits.

What other reason could there be? The last two gasoline spikes were the fault of a Texas Yahoo in the White House doing favors for his Big Oil buddies, so it only makes sense that now the current occupier of Pennsylvania Avenue is doing the same for his pals.

Actually, I do find it amusing how people lose their shit when the price of gas goes up. Do I like it? No. But you need to deal with it. We’re not building any more refineries. The rest of the world isn’t becoming less dependent on this resource. Hell, the last time this happened, America’s consumption of gasoline actually went down. I’m curious to see what’s going to happen this time around.
