Jordan and Magic in Michael Jackson videos

It is with our deepest regret that Michael Jackson passed away recently. He was truly an amazing person, talented singer, and special dance artist. It seems necessary that we give him our second commemoration here at our site since news broke of his death.

As mentioned in a previous article, Michael Jackson, is easily the most famous individual to ever walk the planet. His name and his legend rides amongst political leaders and presidents from the past and from the future. Due to his strange remaining years it is understandable that some people have trouble recognizing his brilliance.

To put into perspective how amazing Michael Jackon was, Michael Jordan, admitted he was nervous upon meeting this pop star at a time when Jordan’s excellence himself was unprecedented.What happened was Jackson invited Jordan to be included in a music video for his most recent single at the time, Jam. Jordan of course excepted and was featured in a role shooting baskets with the pop star for that video. Besides Jordan, Magic Johnson and Eddie Murphy are among the list of many other famous individuals who accepted taking a part in Jackson’s music videos.

Recently there has been an abundance of media attention directed at the news of Jackson’s death. Some people understand why and some others don’t. For those who do not, I want to help you understand how great Jackson’s legacy is. This guy was yes: crazy, insane, and definitely troubled in his later years but if you can focus on how much he did when he was in his prime, then you should have no problem realizing why he commands so much attention. Watch this following video and leave comments if you feel that Lebron, Kobe, Dwight, Obama, or recently featured Adriana Lima commands this reaction or anything similar from people of different countries all over the world. In the following video citizens jump, dive, stab, cry, shout, lounge, faint, piss, and become hysteric at either the mention or sight of Michael Jackson.  I would like to advise, the following video is gnarly.

Shaq, Lebron, and Dwight Howard Dance up the Jam!

A few years back Shaquille O’neal, Lebron James, and Dwight Howard met at half court during the 2007 All-Star weekend Eastern Conference practice  to determine who had the best moves without a basketball in hand. It’s true they had a dance off. I’m guessing based on personality that either Shaq or Dwight requested this moment. Either way, hands down Shaq showed the youngsters what was good for them. Imagine trying to move swiftly and fluently as a seven foot 300 pound dude with a size 23 shoe. After watching this video you will know that your not the only one who dances in front of the mirror to make sure you’ll look good in the club that Saturday night.

A True Game Summary?

LAKERS1-1It is amazing how many sports reporters manipulate the summary of a sports game. Not just reporters but “professional” analysts as well tend to select specific stats to use and always omit others in order that it looks like they know exactly what there talking about.

This evening I found an article on a very popular site that I felt was very biased in the way in which it was written. The reporter simply did not include the correct information to make his argument fair. With this in mind I dug up the stat sheet for the first two games between the Lakers and Magic to produce some other stats to show you below. It’s always good to hear the rest of the story.

  • Dwight Howard has only 6 field goals in the first two games combined.
  • Howard has been to the free throw line 7 more times than Kobe in these first 2 games.
  • Kobe has 40 more shots than Howard in the first 2 games of this series.
  • Both Kobe and Howard had 7 turnovers in game 2.
  • Rafer Alston A.K.A. Skip to my Lou and J.J. Reddick were 1 of 10 from three point distance in game 2.

Magic vow to give better effort in game 2?

nba finals 2009 schedule lakers vs magicThe NBA Fastbreak crew on ESPN is awesome. Jalen Rose always knows exaclty what the game plan is for both teams before the game and gives accurate analysis after as well as he stirs up interesting conversation. The other day Rose and his crew were speaking about the poor effort that the Orlando Magic gave in game one of the NBA Finals. Dwight Howard, the starting center and rising superstar for the Magic, said that his team will give a much better effort in game 2 of the finals series on Sunday. Rose reacted to this comment by asking the NBA Fastbreak crew why in the world wouldn’t the Magic be giving complete effort in the first game of the series in which they got hammered by the Los Angles Lakers. What a great question. What was Orlando thinking in Game 1? Why as Howard admitted are they having to put forth more effort in game 2? Shouldn’t they be matching the effort put forth in game one and hopefully the ball will bounce better for them and they make escape with a win? After all it is the NBA finals. As professional basketball players where your job is to play this game, when your teams makes it to the NBA Finals you better be going full steam after the ball all the time! How ridiculous that the captain of this team feels that his teammates weren’t giving full effort. Either way the NBA and all their fans want to see a closer game 2 on Sunday and an exciting series from here on out which means the Magic guards better hit a jump shot and Dwight Howard needs to average 20 points a game.

Basketball Names Show Originality

nba_logo_2_z-thumbRecently I realized that the NBA in comparison with other professional sports leagues, easily has the greatest variety of player “names”. There is Dwight, where now his name is easily recognized by many people, but when you first heard it you thought of Kanye West saying “ight”. Then we have Kobe and Lebron. We have Yao Ming who knows his first name is cool, so he chooses to put it on the back of his jersey where your last name normally goes. There is Carmelo, where a noun and a verb combine. The Lakers have Pao Gasol and Sasha Vujacic which makes me wonder if I spelled those names correctly. What about the Cleveland Cavaliers’ players Mo Williams, Zydrunas Ilgaskas, and Delonte West? Zydunas Ilgaskas sounds like a curse word or better yet should become one. And if you noticed I’m really just pulling names from teams that are still involved in this year’s playoffs. Just a side note.
