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!

USA Olympic Basketball – Selling Out to the NBA

Posted by TopOfTheThread on June 30, 2008

The USA Olympic Basketball Team, or should I say, the NBA Olympic Basketball Team, consists of Carmelo Anthony, Carlos Boozer , Chris Bosh , Kobe Bryant , Dwight Howard, LeBron us olympic basketball team professionals from NBAJames , Jason Kidd , Chris Paul , Tayshaun Prince , Michael Redd , Dwyane Wade , Deron Williams.

Talent-wise, this is by far the best basketball team on the planet.

The NBA will now have increased visibility overseas. The NBA will start playing games in Europe, Asia, and the Far East.

If the US Team wins, as expected, it proves absolutely nothing. They should win. There is no upside.

And for those of you who say it brings us national pride, please stop… A group of wealthy professional athletes winning a Gold Medal does nothing for us. If we sent college and high school kids such as OJ Mayo, Derrick Rose, and Michael Beasley… and they medal’d… now that would be a story…

This is really about the NBA and not national pride. The NBA benefits the most out of the arrangment…

Perhaps the NBA should be paying advertising fees to the United States Olympic Committee…. the way a company buys TV time to run an infomercial.
