A Total Waste of Talent

Some people just don't get it.   Here's a guy with all he God given talent one could ever hope for...And what does he do?

He makes stupid decisions and hangs with the wrong crowd.

Today.....he is facing felony weapons charges.....locked up in the Athens-Clarke County jail.

The "Foot in Mouth" Disease

There goes that disease again...When somebody says something so want to put a foot up their diseased posterior.


Amar'e Stoudemire
Sorry for Homophobic Slur

Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire is owning up to a homophobic message he sent to a fan on Twitter this weekend -- and now wants to publicly apologize, telling TMZ, "I should have known better and there is no excuse."

Amar'e adds, "I am a huge supporter of civil rights for all people. I am disappointed in myself for my statement to a fan."

The NBA just announced ... Amar'e has been fined $50,000 over the incident -- for what the league called "offensive and derogatory language."

Amar'e sent the message Saturday in response to a bitter fan, who criticized Amar'e for the Knicks' poor finish last season. The fan wrote, "@Amareisreal you better come back a lot stronger and quicker to make up for this past season mannnnnn deadasss!!!"

Amar'e responded in a direct message, saying, "F**k you. I don't have to do anything f*g."

Amar'e apologized to the fan directly soon after, writing, "I apologize for what I said earlier. I just got off the plane and had time to think about it. Sorry bro!! No excuses. Won’t happen again.”

James and the rest of the world champion Miami Heat hit up the LIV Miami nightclub at the Fontainebleau Hotel ... where LeBron was drinking out of a 15-liter bottle of Ace of Spades champagne ... which usually run around $75k.

Sources at the club tell us ... LeBron grabbed the mic ... and rapped along with the music all night long ... while a bunch of his teammates puffed away on cigars.

At one point, 'Bron rapped along with the song "Riot" by 2 Chainz while LMFAO rocked out on a nearby stage.

A Miami....Moment

Well....there it is.   The "Association"  is finally done for this season.

King James has a ring....the Heat have the title... And Oklahoma City can say what all the other teams are saying at this time,  "Wait till next year".

Who is Serge Ibaka? And Why is Trashing LeBron?

What is this guy thinking?   Does he really want to see LeBron James playing with yet another chip on his shoulder?   Did he see the Boston series?  

Serge needs to take a chill pill and shut the f*%k up!

Tonight....look for King James to shut Mr. Durant down.

James may not score 40 tonight......but Durant won't either.

Thunder Big Man Serge Ibaka Trashes LeBron James

Serge Ibaka became the first player to talk smack in the NBA Finals, telling Hoopworld's Alex Kennedy last night, "LeBron is not a good defender."
 His full explanation:
"He can play defense for 2-3 minutes but not 48 minutes. LeBron can’t play [Durant] one-on-one."

LeBron is widely regarded as the best wing defender in the league (he ranks #8 in the league in defensive efficiency).

In Game 3, LeBron played great D on Durant down the stretch — pushing him away from where he wanted to go on the court and holding him to 4 points on 2 of 6 shooting.
During the Eastern Conference Finals, he spent time defender Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, and Paul Pierce all in one game.

Being a great defender is what makes LeBron one of the most special players we've ever seen.

But Ibaka — who has been completely shredded by Shane Battier so far — begs to differ.
The series so far as been tame as far as trash talk and chippiness goes, but the pieces are definitely in place for a heated rivalry to bloom.

We'll see if LeBron and Co. take the bait.

Broadway Mike? is true.   Iron Mike is taking on Broadway.   Way to go Tyson!

We will be the first in line to see this train wreck.

Will it be ad-lib?   Will it be scripted?  

Who knows?

But one thing for sure.....It will be very entertaining.....You can bet your "ear" on that!

I Think We ...Pissed Him Off

Well... well....well.

Sometimes things are not what they seem....Sometimes....things are not always as they appear to be.

Sometimes.....we have to apologize.....

Sometimes.......we can be wrong.

Whatever was going through LeBron James'  head.......(and he only knows)....He gave us a big......."F You"....last night.

In one of the greatest play-off performances these eyes have ever seen......King James...put on a show......A show for all ages.

With everybody and their brother....talking much sh*t about James and the Heat....for a lack of effort.....the King  showed the world why he's the baddest "baller"  on the planet.

From the Miami Herald:

Game 6 | Heat 98, Celtics 79 (Series tied 3-3)

Really Miami?  Really?

Things have gone South Beach.    And we couldn't be happier.

The Miami Heat lost to the Boston Celtics last night....and it wasn't even as close as the final score would lead you to believe.

Boston......old legs and all......out played the Heat.

Boston and their coach....had more passion.....more girth.....more energy.

Miami......and their big three.....played tight.....scared....especially in the all important 4th quarter.

From the Miami Herald:


Celtics 94, Heat 90 | CELTICS LEAD SERIES 3-2

So.....what did we learn over these past 2 days?

There are "No-Hitters".....and then there are ..."No Hitters *"...
