No homo.

I said it before and I’ll say it again. When the Gaykers lose their overly aggressive fans get real SILENT. I enjoy the silence don’t get me wrong, but I like the sound of the fair-weather fans with no noise coming out of their dropped jaws. As Mike would say, “Sorry son!” Haha…he’ll be pissed I used his quote on his own team. Bad girl. Good game. (Insert ass-slap here.)

Way to go Sammy!!!

76ers’ Dalembert honored

(Via www.philly.com) The Professional Basketball Writers Association on Monday named 76ers center Samuel Dalembert as the recipient of the J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award for 2009-10.

The award, named for the NBA’s second commissioner, honors an NBA player or coach for “outstanding service and dedication to the community.”

Dalembert was honored for his efforts after a devastating earthquake hit his native country, Haiti, on Jan. 12. Dalembert twice visited Haiti, raised awareness for relief, and donated $100,000 to UNICEF.

“What Samuel has done should be a model for all professional athletes,” said Doug Smith of the Toronto Star, president of the writers’ association, in a news release. “He saw a crying need for help and worked tirelessly to give whatever aid he could while spurring others to act and contribute as well.”

In 2007, Dalembert founded the Samuel Dalembert Foundation, which assists Haiti by teaming with UNICEF, the Red Cross, and Feed the Children.

The most AWESOME show came on tonight, the E! True Hollywood Story: Basketball Wives. What I learned? Piston’s Jason Maxiell’s wife calls him “Pookie Bootie!” How embarrassing. I hope Rodney Stuckey teases the crap out of him. Stuckey looks like a shit talker. On the other hand, I am now a fan of Maxiell because he “stood by” his (then) fiancé when she was fighting ovarian cancer. He even shaved his head when she went bald. Damn you Maxiell for making this thug cry. I also learned, and no offence but Jason Kidd’s twin daughters have little moustaches. That shit ain’t right Jason. You have mastered the art of shaving your own head bald, maybe it’s time you teach the girls some of daddy’s techniques.

I am sad to report my favorite “warrior” ever Allen Iverson will not be playing in the All-Star game this Sunday. Sounds like an UN-happy Valentine’s day for me. He’s missed a bunch of games now “due to the illness of his three-year-old daughter.” Believe me, I’m sympathetic but I am guilty of dropping Haven off with the folks (when I worked full-time) when she was sick. Missing a bunch of 2 hour games and then the All-Star game must be serious! I hope she’ll be alright and I hope the haters put their hate on hold. Man I wish I was his daughter but not sick…and 18…and incest was legal. Haha, sorry I couldn’t help myself.

So I’m really not into the whole “Twitter” thing but now that I am posting my articles to mine I thought I’d try learning a little more about it. I started “following” Marlon Wayans (for obvious reasons) and today he started this comment-fest over John Mayer’s wiener. In case you didn’t hear apparently John isn’t a racist but his dick is. Priceless. Of course people are too up-tight (as usual) and made a HUGE deal about just voicing his preference. Oh, and he dropped an “N-bomb” which wasn’t cool…but he didn’t mean it in the way the rappers themselves mean it. Get it? Anyways, if you are on Twitter, check out Marlon because that guy is funny as hell. If hell was funny…if there even in a hell…

 Last but certainly not least I would like to say, Happy Black History Month! In honor of Black History Month (Wait, is it “PC” to say black in this instance? I don’t need Al Sharpton on my white ass!) I will continue to make out with my boyfriend, continue to love my attitude wielding teenage daughter, and show you one of the WORST commercials EVER! Actually, I did get a laugh out when I saw it. Mostly because I was embarrassed for them yet, jealous of their paycheck. This commercial to me is like a tampon or a Valtrex ad. You don’t want to be seen in them. You be the judge for yourself…I hope you like R&B…sorta.

We always hang in a Buffalo Stance.

I don’t know if you noticed but I added Twitter to the side of the page. Yeah…I know, Twitter. Whateves. If you click on the links you can see the Q&A’s I am doing for this paper/online magazine called OC Weekly. I mean if you want. If you don’t go ____ yourself. You can insert your own adjective there. So needless to say I have been keeping busy with this new writing gig but I’ve still been keeping up with the who’s and what’s. That being said (DT); I don’t have anything against Gilbert Arenas or that Crittenton dude (besides that they’re on the Wizards and that is a lame name) but come the eff on NBA!! If I brought a gun to work, I’d be fired on the spot. If a basketball player does drugs he’s out. But these guys were suspended without pay? That’s it? Arenas’s contract is for 111 million dollars!!! So take a half season out of that and hells no. I’m so sick of celebrities getting over on shit that would ruin our lives if it happened to us. On a better basketball note (and besides A.I. looking fine), apparently Greg Oden from the Trailblazers has a big dick. There are “sexy” pictures of this “gas face” man butt ass naked and believe the ones I saw had a HUGE censor sign over the “junk” region. I guess it does pay to get busted with nekkid (as Arsenio would say) pictures on the internet. If I can’t find a full time job soon…you better get your sunglasses. You girl is pale.

I’m sure you’ve all (hopefully) seen “Gino the Ginny” but I had forgotten all about him until Mike brought it up the other day. So funny, he could teach the New Jersey Shore douches some dance moves. I sorta hope you haven’t seen it so I could be the “funny one” who showed you…

Trying not to bite my nails…

Can you get kicked out for flashing?

Yes it’s true. Thanks to Mike (and to the Jews “killing” Jesus…simmer down, I’m only kidding.) I got 76ers tickets for Christmas. Where are my most amazing tickets to see dreamy Allen Iverson and the rest of my boys take on the lame Clippers? (No offense Ernie.) Four rows behind the 76ers bench!!! What an awesome way to end a very difficult 2009. Should be a good game too since it’s the 6ers (duh) and because last time they played it went into over-time. I’m going to try to sneak down so I can give A.I. a “good game” smack on the ass. Don’t worry; I’ll bring my camera.

I also wanted to mention that the NBA’s new advertising campaign is KICK ASS. I mean, we all know it’s “where amazing happens” but now, it’s also where defense happens. (Unless you are the Sacramento Kings right now getting stomped on by Philly!) I hope there are a lot more commercials to come because it’s also where flying happens, where acting happens, where puberty happens…the possibilities are endless. Call me if you need ideas. I happen to have some free time. Just not tomorrow. 

The end of an era.

I don’t even know what to say except pass me the tissues…and the Seagram’s. This is from Stephen A. Smith’s website. No relation to J.R. aka Earl…

TO ALL OF MY FANS:

I would like to announce my plans to retire from the National Basketball Association. I always thought that when I left the game, it would be because I couldn’t help my team the way that I was accustomed to. However, that is not the case. I still have tremendous love for the game, the desire to play, and a whole lot left in my tank. I feel strongly that I can still compete at the highest level. Stepping away from the game will allow me to spend quality time with my wife and kids. This is a reward that far exceeds anything that I’ve ever achieved on the basketball court. I have prayed for this day and I see it as my greatest gift. I want to thank the people of Reebok International Ltd., for always allowing me to be me and for supporting me my whole career through all the ups and downs. I have enjoyed 13 wonderful seasons in the NBA, and I am grateful. I want to first acknowledge my fans everywhere, who have been with me throughout my entire career. Without you, there would be no me. You should all know that I appreciate your support from the bottom of my heart. Thank you! To Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Isiah Thomas, Charles Barkley and Larry Bird, you guys gave me the vision to play the game that will be forever in my heart. To my Mom, who encouraged and inspired me to play every day, and to all of my family and friends who stood by me from the beginning. Thank you! To my high school coach, Michael Bailey, Coach John Thompson at Georgetown University, Coach Larry Brown and to all of my other coaches, teammates, administrators, owners and staff who’ve been a part of my career, Thank you as well! I’d like to give a special thanks to the people of Memphis. I never played a home game for your beloved Grizzlies, but I want you to know how much I appreciate the opportunity given me by a great owner in Michael Heisley, and the support of the city. I wish the Memphis Grizzlies’ organization all of the success that the game has to offer. And finally, to the city of Philadelphia: I have wonderful memories of my days in a Sixers’ uniform. To Philly fans, thank you. Your voice will always be music to my ears.

God Bless all of you, ALLEN IVERSON

PS- Whoever Ali is I just want her to know she can call me anytime for a late night boot knocking session. “You bring the woodpecker I’ll bring the wood,” LL Cool J.

OK, I might have added the PS part. This is a very sad day for what seems like a “life long” A.I. fan. The bad news is basketball will never be the same again for me. I knew this day would come someday but I hoped it would come in Philly. I guess the preverbal “light at the end of the tunnel” is Allen Iverson will remain looking fine as wine. And in case you were unaware, wine is apparently fine. Hopefully next year his wife and kids will be driving him up the walls and he will pull a Jordan and make a final run in the NBA. Hopefully in a 76ers uniform. I miss you already Allen. 

It's ok to come back...I mean Favre did it. Please??

Being named coach of the year = kiss of death

Posted in Shitty vs Stellar with tags , , , , , , , on November 13, 2009 by ali

I was just saying last night while watching the Suns DESTROY the Hornets that Byron Scott must be shaking in his loafers. NEWS FLASH: The New Orleans Hornets have fired coach Byron Scott. Wooow. I mean, not only was he named coach of the year in 2008, but also they are only eight games in!! Do the names Avery Johnson or Mike D’Antoni ring a bell?  Being named coach of the year in the NBA might be an honor, but it seems like it will instantly seal your fate. Especially if heaven forbid YOUR TEAM can’t pull off eight wins in a row. Byron, I know how you feel. I didn’t get fired but being laid off kinda feels like you’ve been fired. For that feeling, I’m sorry for you. Although, your severance was no doubt bigger than mine. Damn, jump the gun much NBA?
