"The Decision" of a Career

“The Decision” of a Career

One commodity that hasn’t seen any kind of shortage since “The Recession” started has been opinions. Everyone still has their originals about everything pre-Recession, and more than likely have added plenty to the list since then. When it comes to the NBA it’s no different. Although it seems this season many more non-basketball fans have had their opinions in regards to one LeBron James and his infamous Decision. Well guess what, LeBron apparently heard them all and he has a little something to say about it.

Michael Jordan Last Word

Posted by servontaym on July 20, 2010


I think this is what everybody has been waiting to hear for the past few weeks. Michael Jordan has finally spoken about the “Lebron Decision” . The greatest player of all time wasnt even impressed by Lebrons choice to join the Monstars  Heat . I think he said it the best “I would have never called up Larry and Magic and said lets play together.”  Just imagine if those players would have played together the NBA would not be what it is today filled with all types of competition. This might be the Kobe factor if you can’t beat him by yourself join forces and try to take him out together. Still doesn’t make it right you didn’t see Charles Barkley Patrick Ewing Karl Malone and John Stockton join the same team due to the Jordan factor. They tried to do it on their own so they can beat the best. I guess Lebron threw that saying out the window for the rings.  At the end of the day you have to beat the best to become the best so Lebron  will just be an amazing player never better than Jordan or Kobe unless he wins 10 rings.

An Empire State of Mind on SNL

Posted by T. Adeyemi on January 11, 2010

For a show that is mostly known for its comedic skits that center around world news events, Saturday Night Live always seems to find a way to bring in the top rated music artists. This past Saturday night was no exception when songstress Alicia Keys graced the SNL set for two performances. The musical segments proved to be the night’s best moments since host Charles Barkley was so obviously reading his cue cards throughout the live show. Well we can , give Sir Charles the benefit of the doubt because he did provide a few laughs, in comparison to the regulars who were smile worthy at best. A. Keys hit the stage the first time to perform “Sleeping with a Broken Heart” off of her new album entitled The Element of Freedom.

Alicia’s latest compilation has been receiving some mixed reviews from music critics. The Element of Freedom debuted at a relatively disappointing #2 on the Billboard charts. Stalling at the #2 spot can be called a slight disappointment due to the fact that this is Alicia’s first album to not debut at the top spot. However, the album still reached over 400,000 in sales for the first week of release. The subsequent weeks also helped to prove the album’s worth having been certified gold clocking in at over 700,000 copies sold since its December 15th, 2009 release date. The album also got the Grade A stamp from Grade A’s own J. Tinsley when he dubbed the Drake assisted track “Unthinkable” an Instant Classic. Read the rest of this entry »
