MJ and his comments on the king


The mother ship had a conversation with Michael Jordan and asked him about Lebrons move. MJ said “There’s no way, with hindsight, I would’ve ever called up Larry, called up Magic and said, ‘Hey, look, let’s get together and play on one team,’ ” Jordan said after playing in a celebrity golf tournament in Nevada. The interview aired on the NBC telecast of the event. “But that’s … things are different. I can’t say that’s a bad thing. It’s an opportunity these kids have today. In all honesty, I was trying to beat those guys.” – espn

Come on guys, this is Jordan we are talking about. One of the best when it comes to  mind games. He just saw the Miami Heat become a super power while the team he owns who is in the same division is at the bottom of the barrel. Jordan knows that this move kills his team and he is gonna take as many pot shots as he can, not to mention he has a legacy he is trying to protect. Context people, context.

Are we being too harsh on the king?

Everyone is quick to point the finger at Lebron James here and make him out to be the bad guy when in reality there are others who need to own up and take the blame.

What we learned this weekend

I never was really any good at math. All the counting and calculators just wasn’t my thing. Though, I think if she was teaching I could get a renewed interest.

We learned on Friday that Kobe is still the Black Mamba. The Lakers chose a good time to wake up and demolished the Denver Nuggets 119-92. This was Kobe’s best all round performance scoring 35 points and shelling out 10 assists. This marks a record setting 30th trip to the finals and L.A. will be looking for there 15th NBA title. Game 1 of the NBA finals starts Thursday night at 9ET on ABC.

One down, one to go…

Much to the chagrin of David Stern, Nike, Jim Henson and the basketball world outside of Orlando. The King with his 11 bubbling jesters, and a depressed city have been relegated to a fishing boat.  Memo to Danny Ferry, get Bron Bron a dynamic Robin ASAP or he is going to be saving Gotham for real in 2010.  Bring on Kobe and GO MAGIC!

King James dominates

Lebron James is the best basketball player on the planet period. Forget about Kobe, D-Wade, or any other pretenders to the throne. Lebron James is king. The Magic made a huge comeback after getting decimated in the first quarter but the King just wouldn’t give up the series, not just yet.

DG – Volume II

I know it’s been a couple of days.  I promised a DG running diary live from game 3 as I scored some great seats.  Then I promised a combo report on games 3 and 4.  Well, after getting the pulse of Orlando, the pulse of Cleveland courtesy of our bitter Nascar loving Clevelandite and the pulse of the rest of America, here is what I came up with…

Bill Simmons: The Peoples Champion

I have been reading “the sports guy” for almost 10 years now and if you are anything like me you probably have been getting tired of all his pro-boston articles. Simmons will go on and on about the celts, the pats, and the red sox that you want to take a mallet to your computer. In his defense I will say that if my favorite sports teams have been hording championships like his I probably would be doing the same thing. Though when Simmons decides to take off his Boston shaded glasses he still knows how to bring it.

What we learned this weekend

I hope everyone had a great memorial day weekend. Mine consisted of several pool parties/get togethers and now I’m nursing a minor sun burn. Personally, I learned that all the sun screen in the world cannot protect my Jewish skin. Enough about me though, here is what we all learned from this weekend of sports.

Not even a sour tummy can stop Melo and the Nuggets. The nuggets proved once again that they are not going to lose this series without a fight.
