Hey Serena: "Win the Sony Ericsson Open Like Any Negro Would"...

Serena looked like she was on her way to a good ol fashioned ass whoopin when she caught her second wind outta no where and beat WhatsHerName Henin to win the Sony Ericsson Open Championship. I watched a majority of the match and I SO wish that I was there! NO, not because of tennis, but because of my "play-play" boyfriend D. Wade who was in attendance....and looking quite scrumptious might I add!

LeBron's New Crib...

If you're friends with LeBron James, it must be nice. It's gonna be even nicer when his new mansion which includes a studio, theater, bowling alley, casino will be finished!!! If I was one of his homeboys I'd never leave his house (LOL). His kids are very fortunate children. And if I was his 'baby mama,' he'd have to kill me to get rid of me. His new home, which will be done in 2008, is the size of a Best Buy!!
  • LeBron's new home will encompass 35,440 square feet.
  • It will include a recording studio, a two-lane bowling alley, a casino, a 26- by 63-foot theater, a sports bar, an aquarium and a barbershop.
  • A first-floor master suite, which includes a two-story walk-in closet, is about 40 feet wide and 56 feet long.
  • Outside, the west wall will feature a limestone sculpture -- a bas-relief of LeBron's head, wearing his trademark headband.

Hey Serena: 'Hit the Net Like Any Negro Would'...

LOL! Some people are so ignant. A heckler was ejected from Serena Williams' match on Monday against Lucie Safarova (in which Serena won) for making at least one racist remark.

''The guy said, 'Hit the net like any Negro would,'" Williams said. ''I was shocked. I couldn't believe it. I had to do a double take. I think I hit a double fault on that point...'I shouldn't have let it bother me because growing up in Compton we had drive-bys. I guess that's what my dad prepared me for, but I'm not going to stand for it.'' (Sun Times)

I don't blame her, I would've made sure that he was ejected too. Heckling is one thing but shouting racist remarks is a different issue.

Another Rapping Ball Player...

Tony Parker is rich, seems like a good guy, has a beautiful chick, is living every Pony playing kid's dream of being in the NBA and still that isn't enough!! Please tell me the logic of Tony Parker for releasing a rap album!!! Is he doing this solely for fun or does he think he's gonna sell??!! Who wants to hear about his life in the "hood" overseas?? Who wants to hear about him "hustlin" in San Antonio on game nights?? Surely that's the extent of his "rappable" experiences. I've said it before, if you're a ballar - PLAY BALL!!! Stop poppin up in areas that are not of your expertise!! (Best Damn Sports Blog)

Heading to the A-T-L!!!

It's finally gettin' down to the nitty gritty!! The Final Four is all set now and play will begin in Atlanta on March 31.

The Final Four features:

History's oldest looking college freshman...

(Greg Oden of Ohio State)

College basketball's most passionate player...

(Joakim Noah of Florida)

A team that hasn't been to the Final Four since 1985...

(The Hoya from Georgetown University)


A player who's name makes me giggle because when said it sounds like "my bootay."

(UCLA's Luc Richard Mbah a Moute)
I'm crossing my fingers for a Gator repeat!

Damn Sheed!!!

Rasheed Wallace was suspended on Sunday for one game without pay for picking up his 18th tech! An NBA player or coach receives an automatic one-game suspension after receiving his 18th technical foul in the same season. Every other technical beyond that (20, 22, 24, etc.) results in a one-game suspension without pay. (ESPN)

I Didn't Think it Was that Serious!!!

When I heard that the guy who suits up as the North Carolina mascot was struck by a car on Friday, I thought that was really sad. However, I was thinking that he had a couple of scrapes and bruises and would be back in that costume in no time. Silly me! While visiting this morning, I was shocked to find out that doctors say there's little hope for Jason Ray as he is currently on life support. So sad. I'm hoping for a miracle.
A 21-year-old University of North Carolina student who served as a mascot for the school's basketball team died Monday, three days after he was struck by a sport-utility vehicle while walking along a highway. Jason Ray, who dressed up as UNC's ram mascot, Rameses, had been in critical condition since the accident on Route 4 on Friday afternoon. He had been in New Jersey for the men's NCAA Tournament game between North Carolina and Southern California at Continental Airlines Arena.
According to police, Ray left his hotel to go to a nearby convenience store Friday afternoon, and was walking back along Route 4 when he was struck from behind by an SUV. The driver stopped immediately to call 911. No charges have been filed.
Ray was scheduled to graduate in May with a major in business administration and a minor in religion.

Gilbert Arenas Owes Somebody $10...

Gilbert Arenas made a friendly little $10 bet with two fans that he'd make the game winning shot against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday. Not only did he not make the game winning shot and lose the bet, but he pissed the NBA off in the process. Lucky for him, he dodged one of those hefty NBA fines and got by with just a warning. He promises to never do it again.

Ron Artest Wants to Retire??

Ron Artest must really be going though a lot because he's talking about calling it quits after the season is over. Supposedly, he has told several teammates that after the Kings play their last game, he's gonna retire. If he does leave, he'd be walking away from a contract that pays him two more seasons at 7.4 million dollars each!!! Ron Artest is only 27 years old (for some reason I thought he was older)...what is he gonna do if he retires now?!?! I hope he's not tryna continue pursing that rap dream of his. Maybe he'll change his mind.

I Love These Two!!

Don't Do It Reggie!!!...if you haven't already. There's Reg and Kim Kardashian at the Mercedez Benz fashion show in LA. In case you don't know who she is, she's the daughter of the late Robert Kardashian (who worked on O.J.'s case back in the day), good friend of Paris Hilton (which should give you a few hints), and has been linked to Nick Cannon, Marques Houston, and Ray-J (to name a few). She even stars in her very own movie with Ray-J that came out this week!! Check it out. **NSFW**

Kobe's Mad As Hell!!!....hee hee

Apparently everybody is talking about little Kevin Durant. Recently Boston, Charlotte and Golden State have been handed down some pretty hefty (yes, I said hefty) fines for even making comments about the Texas Freshman Phenom. The Dallas Morning News ran a story saying that Jelly Bean's baby boy called Durant on behalf on Nike. Supposedly Kobe called him and said "you won't lose your Nike endorsement if you get accused of rape." LOL. Seriously, the story said something about Kobe calling him to discuss a multi-million dollar endorsement and blah, blah, blah (read the story if you want to know the "exactuals"). Kobe's pissed AND he released this statment, "Hell to the naw!"

Ahhhh Damn!!!!

OUR boy Cholly V. is out for the rest of the season. He developed recurrent right shoulder pain and it will require arthroscopic surgery. I really like this guy so I hope he has a speedy recovery and bounces back to full speed!

"Your honor, I don't believe I'm a man who belongs in jail"

Those are the words of Chicago Bear Tank Johnson before he was sentenced to 120 days (4 months) in jail on Thursday for violating probation in a 2005 gun case. He also has to pay a $2500 fine. The judge who ruled in this case obviously doesn't givva damn about his celebrity (not saying that's a bad thing). Big Tank pleaded w/him before the trial to avoid jail time and all the judge could say was, "Just because he's a professional football player and plays for the Chicago Bears, doesn't put him above the law." SO TRUE. There's a lesson to be learned from this....stay outta trouble!!

Message to the Chirens from Scot Pollard: "Do Drugs!"

Some people's attempts at being funny are terrible. Scot Pollard of the Cleveland Cavaliers claims that it was a "bad joke" when he looked into the camera during a recent game (in which he was inactive) and said, "Hey kids, do drugs." I do agree that the world is overly sensitive and some things that are actually hilarious, will get chopped down and dissected as being offensive. That comment to me was neither funny nor was just plain stupid.

The Duke Basketball Team...

...can make Spring Break plans because their post season play was ended yesterday thanks to Virginia Commonweatlh. I don't think that I can ever rememeber Duke losing so early in the tournament. That's probably because they haven't lost in the first round since 1996! VCU is not only happy because they beat the Almighty Blue Devils, but I'm sure that not winning a tournament game since 1985 factors into their happiness. After the game, coach K was spotted walking briskly to the locker room with a "what the hell just happened" look on his face. Either way, it was a hell of game AND being that this is VCU's head coach's first year there, I'm sure that he's a little happy himself.

Being Gay Pays...

Before opening the closet door and taking a few steps out, a lot of people didn't know who the hell John Ameachi was. After the closet exit, there aren't many people who don't know who he is. I think it's safe to say that before announcing his gayness, he wouldn't have his brand new endorsement deal with HeadBlade (a brand of head-shaving razors).
"John Amaechi is the newest face of the brand because he embodies many of the qualities representative of a HeadBlader," HeadBlade chief executive Todd Greene said. "He is a man comfortable in his own skin and he's not afraid to go against the grain." (ESPN)
Not only is he "comfortable in his own skin" but he's also comfortable in another man's ass, LOL. I wonder how many homophobic users of HeadBlade are gonna switch brands...

Who's Tat is That??

I've been gone away from my computer for a while living in laptop world. I'm not the biggest fan of doing a lot on laptops. I don't know why, but I prefer my PC. Now that we're re-connected, I don't know what to do!! I thought about blogging a lotta shit, but there's not really much goin on. So that's where the "who's tat is that" idea came from...boredom mixed with the excitement of being with my PC again!!

These are a few pics of our tatted NBA pals.

Kobe Throwin' Bows...

Kobe better chill out with the hard fouls cus he could possibly get suspended AGAIN...for the same shit!!

An elbow thrown at the Sixers’ Kyle Korver by the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant in the final moments of the first half of Friday night’s game is “being looked at” by league officials, an NBA source indicated. Bryant was coming off a one-game suspension for a blow to the face of Minnesota guard Marko Jaric and had served an earlier one-game suspension for a similar incident with San Antonio guard Manu Ginobli. In an Associated Press report from Indianapolis Saturday night, Korver said, “I didn’t think it was that big a deal. I thought it was an offensive foul. After I saw it on replay, it looked a lot worse than I thought it was during the game. It all happens fast. It’s no big deal. It’s just part of
the game.” Hooped Up

It's Not Fair...

Isiah Thomas, AKA The Human California Raisin, gets to remain in New York as both coach and president of the Knicks. Thomas has shown enough "evident progress" to earn a multiyear contract extension. Some shady business is goin on in New York. I'm still confused as to why Larry Brown was fired. It just doesn't seem fair to me that Larry Brown wasn't given much of a chance, but this guy gets to hang around.
Oh yeah, I know that Cali Raisin comment may have seemed random but since I was a kid I ALWAYS thought that Isiah Thomas looked like a California Raisin.

It's Tournament Time!!

It's March Madness (whoo-hoo)!!! I don't really get into the whole bracket predicting thing anymore. After last year I completely gave it up. Who would have thought that things would have turned out the way they did in '06? Just in case you don't have a bracket for some reason, I got you! (Printable Bracket)

Carmelo Anthony is a Daddy!

Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony became a father Wednesday afternoon when his fiancee, actress La La Vazquez, gave birth to a son, Kiyan. Kiyan (pronounced kai-ann) weighed 5 pounds, 9 ounces and was 18 1/2 inches long. Anthony stayed in Denver and will not play against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. (HoopedUp)

Did they refer to La La as an actress??

Ya'll May Not Givva Damn, but I Do...

I have this little innocent fascination with LSU's women's head basketball coach Pokey Chatman...actually she's now the former head coach. Today she resigned which came as a shock to EVERYBODY, and she's not even elaborating. If you keep up with LSU women's basketball you'd know that she's been nothing short of successful while the head coach, and had what seemed to be a big future with the Lady Tigers. That's why everyone was soooo shocked when she decided to throw Baton Rouge the deuces. I wish her the best.

I Stalked Sheryl!!

I was at the SEC Women's Tournament on Thursday in Duluth, Georgia kinda bored. Then all of a sudden, I noticed a familiar face in front of me. Low and behold, it was Sheryl Swoops!! All I had was my phone so I got a quick picture of her standing up. I felt like such a stalker, LOL. Later on, I got the balls to ask her to take a picture with me and she did!! I'm sure it was a lovely photograph, but unfortunately I never saw it. The person taking the picture accidently erased it in an effort to save it :~(

Ron Artest Hits Girls...

Sacramento Kings forward Ron Artest slapped a woman's face and grabbed her repeatedly, causing visible injuries, according to a sheriff's report made public Tuesday. Artest was arrested Monday after a woman inside his home in a Sacramento suburb called 911 and said she had been assaulted. In a portion of the 911 tape released by authorities, the woman described injuries to her hand and leg. "Victim sustained visible trauma after being repeatedly grabbed by Artest and pushed to the floor," said the Placer County Sheriff's Department report. "Artest then slapped victim's face [and] by use of force prevented victim from leaving." Artest was arrested Monday on suspicion of domestic violence and using force or violence to prevent his victim from reporting a crime. He was released from custody after posting a $50,000 bond and is awaiting a March 22 arraignment. (continue)

A charter bus carrying a college baseball team from Ohio plunged off an interstate ramp early Friday and slammed into the highway below, killing six people, injuring 29 and scattering sports equipment across the road, authorities said. Four students, the bus driver and the bus driver's wife were killed, said police Maj. Calvin Moss. At least three people were listed in critical condition. The bus, carrying the team from Bluffton University, a Mennonite-affiliated school south of Toledo, toppled off the Northside Drive bridge on Interstate 75 in clear, pre-dawn weather, police spokesman Joe Cobb said...(continue)
