What up world? It’s your boy EJ back with another edition of The Blog About Nothing. I almost didn’t publish the blog this week. Received some tough news this week and I’m a little down, but I have to remind myself that I love this shit. Just like that dude August Alsina. Feel me? So, with no clear direction, I’m just going to get into it. Come along for the ride.
Going to start off with a little NBA Conference Finals talk. Going to keep this brief. A few weeks ago I thought it would be a Heat-Grizzlies Finals. Well, it’s not looking good for the Memphis Grizzlies right now. The San Antonio Spurs are up 2-0 in the Western Conference Finals behind solid play from Tony Parker and Tim Duncan. Parker’s on one leg but so far he’s making it happen for the Spurs. The Grizz woke up towards the end of Game 2 and could be 1-1 but it’s damn near impossible to come back from a 2-0 deficit and win the Series, so it’s looking like old man basketball will be back in the Finals. Timmy wants ring #5 and he’ll have to go through LeBron to get it. Heat-Pacers game 1 was a battle. Both teams slugged it out to the end and the Indiana Pacers almost pulled it off but LeBron and his 9th career triple double (30 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists) did it again. LeBron is the best player in the game! Enough said! Bron is in his prime and if it is Heat-Spurs in the Finals, look for LeBron to get revenge on Timmy for the Spurs beating his Cavs back in 2007.
Earlier this week, the Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA draft lottery for the 2nd time in 3 years. Back in 2011 winning the lottery brought the franchise Kyrie Irving. Kyrie is a superstar in the making. However, the Cavs winning this time will likely result in Nerlens Noel, the Center out of the University of Kentucky. Noel is currently rehabbing from a torn ACL but in his only season at Kentucky he flashed some potential. However, kid is going to be in trouble in the next level if the Cavs aren’t patient. Why? Dude is thin. Starving African thin. I mean 6’10” and barely over 200 pounds? Shoot, I’m over a foot shorter and heavier (don’t ask me how much!!). I got a better shot of throwing my weight around the paint then good ol’ Nerlens. No offense but what kind of name is Nerlens anyway? I’d change that name homie! Anyway, the Cavs better point Nerlens towards the weight room, and towards some restaurants. Kid needs to gain at least 60 pounds if he wants to be a NBA center. He won;t be a star like Kyrie so Cavs fans should be mad that your team won the lottery a year too early. Next year is the superstar class. This year’s draft is like Christina Hendricks . . . all bust!
Speaking of busts, why is Rex Ryan criticizing Mark Sanchez for throwing 3 interceptions in an OTA practice? You’re talking about practice!?!? Practice!? Where is Allen Iverson when you need him? It’s May and already Rex wants Jets fans to panic. Now I’ve made my Sanchez hate pretty clear a few weeks ago in this blog, but he’s catching a bum deal for Rex going to the media over a bad May practice. It’s not mini-camp. It’s not training camp. It’s an optional camp. Mark didn’t even have to be there so why give him a hard time now! As much as I want Mr. Butt Fumble gone, I’m actually feeling sorry for the dude. He deserves criticism but it’s May. The start of the season is still over 3 months away! Rex needs to shut his recently slimmed down ass up. Fall back Rex and let Mark live right now.
Thanks for rocking with me through another edition of The Blog About Nothing here on www.7poundbag.com My bad on keeping it brief but like I said in the intro, I really ain’t in the mood but I can’t let the few loyal readers I have out there down. It’s Friday and they want the blog so I did what needed to be done. Anyway, I’m out till next week. Peace.
