Real Talk: Weekend Sports Wrap Up

Kobe signed his extension with the Lakers worth reportedly $90 million

It’s been an exciting weekend for anyone who loves sports.  U had Butler and Duke both advance in the NCAA tournament and will go head to head tonight, to see who will be the 2010 NCAA Champs!!! Drop a comment and let us know who will win tonight?

Also, there was a big shake up in the NFL this weekend and future Hall of Famer Donovan McNabb now has a new home, but didn’t go too far.  He’ll stay in the NFC East division but will start the 2010-2011 season as a Washington Redskin.  Redskin fans have to be jumping w/ joy after the moves they’ve pulled off so far.

In NBA news Gilbert Arenas managed to dodge a jail stint for bringing loaded guns into the Washington Wizards locker room.  The judge instead ordered him into a halfway house.  Smarten Up people!!!  But he will go to jail for two days for medical screening & classification.  Also, the department wants him “to see a jail and understand what they have avoided,” according to ESPN .

And as if he already didn’t have enough to smile about, Kobe Bryant signed his extension w/ the Los Angeles Lakers worth reportedly $90 million over 3 yrs.  WOW, gotta love the NBA!!!



Well, Tiger has made headlines again. No, no, no! I’m not talking about new allegations or sex scandals.  He recently released a five paragraph statement claiming his return to the golf course. He will return to the game of golf for the biggest stage…”The Master’s”.  I don’t know about you but I know networks such as ESPN and CBS are jumping up and down like excited children, while thinking of the ratings this guy is about to bring in.  Just think about the reaction from his peers, the news media and the fans.  This will be an event for the ages.

Gilbert…Gilbert…Gilbert.  Just a few years ago, you were the face of your franchise, competing for playoff pushes, and showing fans why you have a chance to gain a scoring title. My, have times changed.  In a recent Esquire Magazine interview Gilbert Arenas revealed that he deserves to be punished for bringing guns to the locker room, and went on to say that he wasn’t using “longevity thinking” when he took out four guns in what he says was an attempt to play a prank on a teammate.  Arenas pleaded guilty to a felony gun charge in January and will be sentenced next week. He has been suspended until the end of the season by the NBA.

OMG…It seems that the athletes these days come straight from the video games these days w/ the dunks and antics they attempt. Check these out and tell me if which dunk was better:


His name is Kevin Durant…and he has a problem. He is one of the top 3 players in the NBA, neck and neck with Lebron James for MVP, leading his team on a 9 game win streak and somehow we are still sleeping on him. He can shoot like Glen Rice in the 90’s, jump like Clyde Drexler in the 80’s and is second only to Jordan in consecutive games scoring over 25 points, with 28 and counting.


Durant is going to take the Oklahoma City thunder to the playoffs with probably the 5th seed or higher and you don’t even know where Oklahoma City is. Kevin Durant was featured in the Nike Hyperize shoe commercial but you wouldn’t recognize his shoes if you saw them in Foot Locker. But don’t feel bad, it’s not your fault. There is a perfectly logical explanation for all of this. Kevin Durant doesn’t exist.

 He is a figment of our imagination. He only materializes for 48 minutes at a time, shoots over everyone hitting shots that people only try in a game of HORSE then vaporizes as soon as the lights go off. He is not a part of the collective media hype. He doesn’t get those special 1 on 1 interviews and doesn’t have many endorsements. All he does is abuse his addiction, scoring baskets. If you hold a basketball up to a mirror and say his name 3 times in the dark he will appear, claws and fangs out with a quiet calm smile. He is Kevin Durant. He has a problem.
