Lil Wayne and Kobe Music Video

Just a moment ago I found a better version to the Lil Wayne track which gives praise to Kobe Bryant A.K.A. the Black Mamba. Credit goes to Hoop Doctors as my source. It is said that Stanford students, Abteen-Bagheri-Fard and Jay Kilachand, put together this amazing mix of old-school Bryant and Wayne highlights since no previous music video had been produced. They must have spent hours on this one.

Lil Wayne raps about Kobe Bryant

One of this year’s biggest emerging rap stars is a fan of Kobe Bryant. Lil Wayne, the son of Bird Man, wrote a song very recently in tribute to Kobe Bryant’s dominance on the court. Now as much as I dislike Bryant for threatening Michael Jordan’s brilliance when he played, Bryant is one of the best in the league and deserves a song about his efforts.

Stephen A. Smith, an NBA analyst for ESPN, starts the track by explaining why Bryant is in many opinions, the best there is in the league. This is truly a great song and as always Lil Wayne will make you laugh with an impressive array of rhymes and lines. As Wayne sings in the song, ” Don’t worry Lebron, get’em next year.”

Michael Jordan? No, Mikey V.

Hey everyone, it’s Mike here.  I wanted to get this introduction post out of the way before the Finals was set, but some issues made that feat a bit difficult.  The point is however, that I’ll be helping out with and contributing to the blog as much as possible.  I think I’m a qualified observer and articulate enough to speak intelligently about the game of basketball, however only time will tell; the ball never lies.  I’ll do my best to be objective and fair but I do have allegiances.Allison me

I’m bummed out by Cleveland’s elimination.  I feel for the city of Cleveland, my dad is from there.  Ever since that pitifully heart wrenching collapse in the World Series against the Marlins, I have silently (and not so silently) cheered on Cleveland teams in addition to my own home teams.

Moving on.  I’m disappointed with the way the Conference Championships panned out.  The Nuggets’ effort in game 6 was atrocious and the Cavaliers proved they were over-matched the whole series.  We’ve all read and heard enough about it by now that it’s not worth rehashing.  That being said the Finals series should present some really interesting individual match-ups.  In particular with the tweener fowards on both clubs:  Odom, Lewis, Turkoglu, Ariza and Pietrus. The play of Pietrus, and the entire Magic bench will again be extremely important since the Lakers bench is so deep .  It will also be interesting to watch the coaching in these games.  I’m praying for matchup carousels.  I don’t think very highly of Stan Van Gundy, although I really like his brother in the booth.  Then again I tend to think coaching in the NBA is an overrated endeavor, an opinion of mine that usually earns me a bit of grief.

The 2-3-2 series in my opinion makes upsets more probable. My predictions for the finals are as follows: the Magic steal a game and play well at home, winning in 6.  As that series gets underway, you’ll hear more from me. Be ready for it.

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.
