don’t believe the hype


Cocaine’s a hell of a drug… by mchoy

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve undoubtedly heard all the speculation about where Lebron will end up in the summer of 2010 when arguably the greatest young players, Dwyane Wade, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh, etc., in our generation will all become unrestricted free agents, able to milk the market for all its worth.

Among possible suitors, the Knicks have been thrown in as perhaps the most viable. D’Antoni’s run and gun system will pad his already ridiculously gaudy stats and he will position himself in, supposedly, the hub of American culture. Its no secret that he has expressed his love for all things New York, but I just wonder if everyone is forgetting that New York is still terribly disfunctional. And all this disfunction centers around the Conductor of the Krazytrain himself, Stephon Marbury.

Perhaps in the future we can go more in depth into Basketball’s equivalent to the Election we just had, with teams jockeying for position at the front of the Lebron line, but today I would just like to talk about the tragedy that is Stephon Marbury. Usually, I’m not a big believer in supposed players with behavioral problems sucking the chemistry out of team, most often its the product of poor media portrayal. Stephen Jackson, OJ Mayo, Ron Artest, Randy Moss, even Terrell Owens all seem to be doing well and getting along well with their teammates despite what the sports media would have us believe. However, in the case of Stephon Marbury and his much chronicled downfall, this portrayal is absolutely 100% warranted.

Plenty of Finishes but Anticlimactic Main Event at Strikeforce: Destruction by caseyly16

Originally written for Kakutougi magazine by Casey Ly(That would be me!!), on 11/22/08

SAN JOSE, Calif. — In a night full of spectacular finishes, Renato “Babalu” Sobral was crowned the new Strikeforce world light heavyweight champion due to a cut above Bobby Southworth’s eye at the end of the first round. While Southworth controlled much of the action early by controlling Babalu on the ground, a well placed elbow by Sobral at the ten second mark of the first round opened two cuts above the champion’s eye. The bout was immediately halted and the ringside physicians were brought in to check the cuts, and the fight was allowed to continue. However, the cuts were re-examined again between rounds and the doctor deemed them too severe, effectively ending the match.

808’s & Heartbreak Review by caseyly16

You have to respect Kanye West as an artist.

Because of his stellar resume, Kanye is one of the rare pop acts in the world who is able to step to his own beat (Coldplay being another). The famed producer-rapper has fought to obtain an immense amount of creative space, and therefore he is able to completely express himself in his works. Watching his evolution from the College Dropout to Graduation has been incredible, and this is the next big step.

OH My GOd double whammy. Two posts in one day. I’m BACK…

Haha, not really. I was originally going to comment on someone’s status about how ridiculous their statement against prop 8 was, but then it got long so I decided to just write a full on note.

But why just leave it on facebook,when I could share my, perhaps horribly misguided juvenile thoughts with the world!

…. And Here. We. Go.

Amare Stoudemire is the best Offensive Player in the gam by mchoy

Did anyone check out Amare Stoudemire’s stats yesterday?

17-21, 49 pts, 11 rebs, 6 dimes, 5 steals, 2 blks

And that isn’t the best part… 15-15 on FTs

Believe the hype on this man, his offensive games has completely matured. He is undoubtedly the quickest, strongest, forward in the game. He has arguably the most dependable jumpshot out of  the traditional PF’s in the league right now, and if you crowd him he has the footwork and size to throw it down everytime. And when I say every time…
