Shaquille O’Neal is a superhero once again

Keywords: shaq, superman

 

Shaq has gone by many names during his NBA career. One of which was the Superman moniker. The name wasn’t just generic though, apparently Shaq really is a fan of comic books. So of course the big Aristotle is now heading into the genre himself. The comic is actually illustrated by a guy who has done work with both DC and Marvel, the two big comic book companies. Come to think of it this isn’t the first time Shaq became an imaginary hero, although I wont remind you of the massacre that was Kazaam.

 

 

All right I lied, it is too funny not to remind you of Kazaam. I mean it is Shaq as a genie. How did they think this movie would be anything other then a flop?




Ron Artest takes to twitter to express his feelings on James Harden

Keywords: james harden, ron artest

 

For a guy named Metta World Peace, he is far from a civil individual. As we all remember Ron Artest elbowed James Harden towards the end of the regular season which led to a lengthy suspension. Clearly Artest doesn’t feel like he should cut Harden some slack as we can tell by his tweet last night. Harden was 2-10 shooting while taking 4 fouls. A poor game off the bench for Harden leads to critiques from everybody, including the guy that tried to knock your head off with his elbow.

 




The many uses of cereal, brought to you by Anthony Davis

Keywords: anthony davis, kentucky

Guess what I had for breakfast today, Reeses!!! You had candy for breakfast? NOT CANDY, REESES PUFFS CEREAL. Ahh the classic cereal commercials of my childhood. It has been years since the cereal companies had any fun marketing. So with that, Kentucky fans took things into their own hands, making a mural of future first overall pick Anthony Davis. Now these two are holding just one box each, but something tells me it took a lot more breakfast treats to make this masterpiece.




Former Knick Josh Harrellson getting a long look by the Heat

Keywords: jorts, josh harrellson

 

Josh Harrellson was an interesting player for the Knicks last season. Unfortunately, he spent a good majority of his time injured and was later traded for Marcus Camby. And then the Rockets cut him. The dude known for rocking jean shorts has had a rough go of it this past year, but now Jorts will get a look from the reigning NBA champions. Harrellson is a versatile player that could make the Heat bench even deeper than it already is. Jorts was one of only 3 players to average 9 rebounds and at least one 3 pointer per 36 minutes played. And maybe he can bring a little bit of fashion down to Miami as well.

 




D Wade and Bron Bron confused over who’s supposed to suck more

Keywords: pic of the day, lebron, wade

 

Down 2-1 in the series, these 2 guys have been given chance after chance to prove themselves to be the Kings that they act like they are, instead we’re stuck watching a bunch of choke artists.  D Wade is allowed to have a bad game, but we’ll just chalk Lebrons up to another awful postseason.




Jeremy Lin is injured, and all I want to talk about is the annoying pun headlines

Keywords: jeremy lin, injury, linjury, linsanity

 

Jeremy Lin gets injured, and all I could think of was how many puns would be played once again on the whole”Lin” thing.  We’re all friends here, we’re all guilty of it-  Linsanity was everywhere, as a Knick fan it was impossible not to get excited,  you probably even dropped a few Lin puns down at the bar with your friends… nobody is judging you;  but they’re over now, it’s time to let go people. I’m not even talking about the guys career! I’m just talking about the annoying use of the puns in relation to his last name.

 

Onto more important things-  I feel bad for this guy, I really do.   Jeremy came in and pumped this city full of life at a time when Knick fans didn’t have much to get excited about.   There will always be the argument of whether or not Melo’s return was good or bad for the team, what’s important to remember is how this kid came and took this team to a new level when they needed it most.    If the Knicks make a strong run deep into the Playoffs, Lin will possibly see some court time pending a speedy and full recovery.

 

My opinion?   He’s a free agent at the end of this season, he had a stellar year, made a tremendous name for himself, and he’s still young enough to worry about his own health and future.   I think he should take the time he needs to properly heal so that he can enter the league next year and make a statement-  there’s nothing worse than a 1 hit wonder, and I have my fingers crossed Jeremy will grow to be a consistent player and team leader one day, whether that place by NY or any other city it’s important for Lin to approach his first real NBA injury with some caution so that he doesn’t throw the rest of a potentially great career right out the window.

 

p.s. whoever spends all their time making those chop-up videos for all the viral trends that hit the web, Thank You.   I spend tons of time on this computer every day and can maneuver around it with the best of em,   but I wouldn’t even know where to start in putting something like that together.




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.
