These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read [an email]

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 26, 2010

An email sent to me by a friend in Arizona — Thanks.
Don’t know who said these…!

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read:

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

  2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

  4. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

  5. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

The News The Knicks Needed To Plant Regarding Lebron James

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 22, 2010

<You need to read the post OK Fess Up Calvin before reading this post. >

IF the Affair of Lebron Jame’s Mom with Delonte West is untrue and just big business trying to manipulate where Lebron James ends up (see post) – this is the news – that team should have released. (For this fairytale, let’s assume Calvin Murphy was paid-off and use the New York Knicks as the culprits.)

The Headline on The Huffington Post would have read:Lebron James Sweepstakes

Calvin Murphy: LeBron James’ Mother ‘Absolutely’ Had Sex With Delonte West,  Devin Harris, Blake Griffin, Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley, and Dirk Nowitzki.

Lebron can’t play with anyone who is messing with his mom. Any team that had someone who was with his mom would be immediately eliminated from the Lebron James Sweepstakes.

  • Delonte West gets him to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers.
  • Devin Harris would eliminate the NJ Nets.
  • Blake Griffin would eliminate the LA Clippers.
  • Derrick Rose would eliminate the Chicago Bulls.
  • Michael Beasley would eliminate the Miami Heat.
  • Dirk Nowitzki would eliminate the Dallas Mavericks.

And that leaves the NY Knicks.

Guys – If you are going to do it, do it right!

OK. Fess Up Calvin (Murphy – regarding Lebron James)

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 22, 2010

Professional Sports is big business. And we now have the biggest player in team sports, Lebron James,  potentially becoming a free agent.

After the dirty stories in Washington DC, Congress, lobbyists, Wall Street, etc… and even our local school board Lebron James Calvin Murphy Sex Mom delonte joneselection, I have become a pessimist and believe people will do anything to get to their goals.

Lebron James may become a free agent.  AT LEAST financially, the Cleveland Cavaliers have an advantage because of the Larry Bird Rule. (Please correct me if I am wrong. Thx).  The first hurdle, for teams other than the Cavs, to getting James is to make sure he wants to leave Cleveland.

Go after his mother? How underhandedly brilliant!

Whether it’s true of not, getting a story to circulate  that James’ mother had sex with a teammate? Someone out there is being very aggressive… you know who you are…

So Calvin – FESS UP – Who paid you?  NY Knicks?  LA Clippers? NJ Nets? Chicago Bulls? Miami Heat?  Dallas Mavericks? Come on. We know. We know you may have been paid indirectly… Tell us… Just between us…

Regardless of the culprits, the NY Knicks,  LA Clippers NJ Nets, Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat and the  Dallas Mavericks are the winners (or beneficiaries) of this rumor. The green flag has dropped, go for it!

Who will win the Lebron James Sweepstakes – and how far will they go?

If Jose Reyes was on The Yankees…

Posted by TopOfTheThread on May 20, 2010

If Jose Reyes was on The Yankees, he would be the Yankee Centerfielder.Jose Reyes On the Yankees Mets

The current Yankee infield is Mark Teixeira (1B), Robinson Cano (2B), Derek Jeter (SS), and Alex Rodriguez (3B).  He is not displacing Jeter from SS.  And there is no way he would displace Cano, Rodriguez,  or Teixeira.

I suppose some Mets fans would argue he’s better than Jeter but he’s never consistently shown it.  Interesting.
