Middle School lad gets suspended for shaving Spurs big man Matt Bonner into his head

Keywords: matt bonner, spurs

 

Well this one is a head scratcher (no pun intended.) I was browsing Yahoo when I came across this article about a very passionate San Antonio Spurs fan. As you see this kid got a work of art imbedded into the back of his dome. And now his school wants him to shave it or serve in school suspension. From my own experience I have had to serve detention during school. It sucks. And there is no reason for this kid to have to alter his look.

 

I mean if the problem is that he chose Matt Bonner of all players I would understand. Bonner is your classic bench warming white guy that can come in and drain threes. But hey, every kid has a different favorite player. Some kids just really like the bad players.




Kobe Bryant just living the dream

I have absolutely no backstory on this picture- woke up to it on my phone, and this picture wiped the tired off my face real quick.  Kobe Bryant strolling through some arena like a goddamn boss-  no other way to describe it.

 

Kobe Bryant dressed in a throwback MJ outfit puffing on a cigar:

There is no bigger power move than this.




Amare needs a little fashion advice

I’m sorry, I’ve been slacking on my Pic of the Day.   Had this one saved on my desktop, I know it’s a couple days old, but I just couldn’t bring myself to dropping it in the trash,  I had to post it.

 

p.s. what is that girl wearing also?    FUPA?   Kangaroo pouch?    yuck




The Charlotte Bobcats are looking past their historically bad season

Keywords: bobcats, michael jordan

 

Last season the Charlotte Bobcats set the NBA record for the worst season ever. They had all of 7 wins and 59 losses. It was ugly, and for me, it was hilarious. As absolutely dreadful as they were last season, they might just be on their way up. Well, according to owner Michael Jordan. The same MJ who has quite a few records of his own.

“We’re trying to build a very strong culture in this franchise and I think we have the right personnel to do so. It can be a matter of time. It really all depends on how fast these kids develop.”

 

“Last year was one of those years where everything happened against us, I take full credit for that. Unfortunately those things happen. But I see an upside for this franchise without a doubt.”

 

 

In all honesty I think the Bobcats have a lot to be excited about. As much as I enjoyed their mediocrity, the Cats are on their way up. They just signed Ramon Sessions to run the point. With the 2nd overall pick in the draft they acquired the highly touted Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Kidd-Gilchrist joins a young core that also features Kemba Walker and Bismack Biyombo.  And we cant forget the addition of head coach Mike Dunlap, from my St. John’s Red Storm. It wont happen overnight, but the Bobcats are certainly on their way up.




Amare Stoudemire drops over a million on engagement ring

Keywords: amare stoudemire, knicks

After spending a day in France touring the historical city of Paris, Stat took his longtime girlfriend out to dinner overlooking the Eiffel Tower. And then he proposed with an 8.5 carat rock, a mineral worth well over a million bucks. I cant think of anything more cliched then proposing to a lady while dining in Paris. Then again I cant think of a single time this season that Stoudemire was creative out on the floor.

 

So there were obviously a ton of pictures I could have chosen for this, but I just found it hysterical that Amare wears the Knicks St. Patricks Day shorts out to the beach. The guy is dropping cake on a ring, he cant afford some swim trunks?




The TWolves take a major hit as Ricky Rubio is done for the season

Keywords: ricky rubio, twolves, minnesota, kevin love

Maybe the Phil Collins allusion wasn’t the best choice for a title involving a guy tearing his ACL. Well either way, Ricky Rubio is gone for the year; and with this type of injury he may not even be ready for the start of next season. This is unfortunate on so many levels. First off, the Timberwolves were finally beginning to get into the playoff hunt. Kevin Love has been an MVP caliber player and a part of that was due to having Rubio running the point. While the TWolves season may falter, the team that really takes a hit is the Spanish national team. With the olympics coming up this summer, I thought Spain would be the only team with a shot of upsetting team America. But without Rubio leading the way, it may be all USA once again. Lets hope that the Spaniard manages to have a quick recovery and be ready to go in time for next year. And on a completely irrelevant note, he bears a striking resemblance to Ringo Starr.




Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist reminds us of the Linsanity

Keywords: jeremy lin, henrik lundqvist

 

Since Jeremy Lin has so foolishly left the New York Knicks I have gone out of my way to avoid talking about him. To be honest I managed to have forgotten him all together. So you could imagine how surprised I was today when I was browsing twitter on my phone during class. This picture, tweeted by New York Rangers goalkeeper Henrik Lundqvist. He just had to remind us all about Jeremy Lin, as the two bumped into each other at the ESPN headquarters in Connecticut. You think the millions of dollars the Rockets threw at Lin would have aloud him to buy some nicer clothing.
