Stop this, it’s got a hold on me. I said this ain’t the way it’s supposed to be. It’s like a heatwave burning in my heart. I can’t keep from crying. Tearing me apart. -Martha and the Vandellas
You knew it was coming. You knew the Heat were going to win some ball games. Even when Tracy McGrady said the chemistry between LeBron James and Dwyane Wade is “terrible” and that James should have signed with the Chicago Bulls instead of the Heat, you knew. Even when Dollar Bill Simmons said his gut feeling when LeBron took his talents to South Beach was, ”That can’t work,” you knew. You knew there would be a time when Lebron James and Dwyane Wade would get their shit together, and in the immortal words of LL Cool J, “Take this itty bitty world by storm.” And they’re just getting warm.

Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Who’s afraid of the big bad heat? The big bad heat. The big bad heat. Maybe you are. Maybe you’re a Knicks fan. Maybe you’re a Hawks fan. Maybe you’re a Pistons fan. That’s you. But, like my main man Bob Dylan always says, “It ain’t me, babe.” I’m a Celtics fan. Always have been. Always will be. Ever since they won titles back-to-back and didn’t give nobody no kind of slack. Or when Kevin McHale shook the whole damn team with moves that came right out of a dream. Or when Dennis Johnson stood so tall, playing D with desire, it’s basketball. It’s Boston Celtics basketball baby! Read More »

Jeepers creepers, where’d you get those peepers? Jeepers creepers, where’d you get those eyes? Oh those weepers, how they hypnotize! Where’d you get those eyes? -Louis Armstrong
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! When Daric Barton arrived in Oakland along with Dan Haren as part of the Mark Mulder deal, he was your prototypical Money Ball type player. He displayed a plate approach well beyond his years. He established himself as an on-base fiend. He maintained a textbook swing. A beautiful swing. A Will Clark swing. It don’t mean a thing, if it ain’t got that swing. Even with that swing, Barton has still not been able to stay up with the big team for any meaningful amounts of at bats. When he was given a chance, back in 2008, he struggled with a .226 batting average and a .327 OBP. What gives? Is it the shoes? Nope. Daric Barton was lost but now is found. He was blind, but now he sees. Read More »

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best. -Tim Duncan
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Everybody here in the Big Apple is jibbering about LeBron. Everybody here in the Big Apple is jabbering about LeBron. Jibbering and jabbering. Blubbering and blabbering. All this chitter-chatter, chitter-chatter, chitter-chatter ’bout schmatte, schmatte, schmatte. I can’t give it away on 7th Avenue. Rolling Stones style. Maybe the New York Knickerbockers should think about giving it away to Dwyane Wade. Last night, D-Wade scored 38 points and dished out 10 dimes. Yowza! That’s the sixth time in his career that Flash had that many points and that many assists in a game, all since 2006-07. Sweet sassy molassy! That’s the most such games for any NBA player over that span. The most. For any player. That’s right. More than your beloved Bron Bron. One more than your beloved Bron Bron, but more just the same. So there.

Aiyyo, Bo knows this. What? And Bo knows that. What? But Bo don’t know jack, cause Bo can’t rap. -Tribe Called Quest
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Oh, what A night for LeBron James. A late December back in ’63 night. First, he knocks down 40 points in the Cavaliers’ 99-92 win against the Pistons. Hooray LeBron James! That’s the third time that he’s scored 40 or more points vs. Detroit in a regular-season game. Big deal you say? Who cares you say? I say, that ties Shaq Daddy for the most career 40-point games against the Pistons among active NBA players. But, if that weren’t enough, he also pitched the 7th inning against Pirates and was simply awesome. Simply the best. Better than all the rest. He simply struck out the first two batters and got the third to pop up. Down goes Walker! Down goes Raynor! Down goes Iwamura! Is there nothing this LeBron James character cannot do? Huh? What? That wat was Baltimore Oriloles’ Luis LeBron. Oh, that’s very different. Nevermind.

But me, I got six. I got six. That’s all there is. Six times one is six, one times six. I got six. That’s all there is. -Schoolhouse Rock
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! At this point, everybody knows little Bron Bron is switching numbers. Everybody knows little Bron Bron is switching numbers to make the big bucks. He can say he’s making a statement. He can say this is all about honoring Michael Jordan. It ain’t. By changing from employee number 23 to employee number 6, little Bron Bron is anticiapting a big merchandise explosion in both old and new Lebron James paraphernalia. Good for him. Just don’t say you’re making a statement. Wanna make a statement? Huh? Do ya. Wear number 25. It doesn’t matter what number you change to. The dollar amount will be the same. But, if you wear number 25, you’ll be sticking it squarely in the mug of one Kobe Wan Kinobi. The Mamba changed to number 24 to be one better than MJ. What will 25 make you? Huh? Huh?

I wanna be like you. I wanna talk like you. Walk like you, too. You’ll see it’s true. Someone like me can learn to be like someone like you. -Jungle Book
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Last night was the clash of the titans. Optimus Prime v. Megatron. Superman v. Lex Luther. Ali v. Frazier. Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier! Down goes Frazier! Down goes LeBron. Last night, LeBron and his Cavaliers’ 13-game winning streak went down at the hands of Carmelo Anthony’s last second jump shot for the winner winner chicken dinner in overtime. Hooray Carmelo Anthony! But LeBron did some things himself. Read More »
