That Ole Black Magic.....

>> Friday, June 5, 2009





That Ole Black Magic...no I am not referring to Ron Jeremy's performance in the 1988 porn flick. I am referring to his lookalike , head coach Stan Van Gundy, and the Orlando Magic's performance in Game 1 of the NBA finals.

Just as Ron Jeremy should be embarrassed for his stint on VH1's "The Surreal Life," Stan Van Gundy and the Orlando Magic should be embarrassed for their lack of effort in game one. According to ESPN, Van Gundy took all the blame for his team's passive effort on the defensive end. To add insult to injury, the Magic were out rebounded 55-41 on the glass. For the Magic to have any shot at an NBA title, they must crank it up on the defensive end.

Ron Jeremy gets more ass than a toilet seat...at least his performance on cam with 2 fine ass skanks was better than Steve Van Gundy's, Howard's, and the Magic...ridiculuous, man can cream pie on some skanks face for everyone and their brother to see, but Howard can't put up more than 12...way to show up prepared Orlando haha..

Hahahah!

That really was a piss poor effort...let's hope the magic can throw down a bit more tomorrow.

Yea, it really was a piss poor effort...I mean I have no issues what so ever with either team winning, Howard and Black Mamba are both athletes deserving of a title, but I prefer the victor to be deserving of the title performance wise...I mean anyone will take a ring if it's given, which if game one is a preamble to the future performances we'll see, it'll be a clean sweep for Black Mamba and ring number 4. I at least want the series to be interesting and possibly a barn burner, go 7 deep, 3-3, and see Kobe and Howard at their finest in game 7, with both teams playing top notch, can't tell me that isn't a nice picture...

I gotta admit, Tolliver...I'm still upset over the fact that Lebron isn't in the finals and its making it much harder for me to put as much interest in as I would like....

Howard is a beast, don't get me wrong, but everyone wanted Lebron and Kobe...not ron jeremy vs. 187 year old Phil Jackson.

JT, I couldn't have said it better myself!

Yea, you're right Lebron and Black Mamba in the finals would have had a much bigger impact for fan perspective and entertainment value. However, I find it bitter sweet. I love knowing Lebron isn't there after the self righteous spoiled brat syndrome he pulled after losing and refusing to shake hands and address the media. He's a superstar, what kind of message is he sending to the kids who idolize him, never once would Michael Jordan have pulled a stunt like that. Lebron shouldn't even be in the same class, because he showed no civil class, nor self chilvary in defeat. True, no one wanted to see Ron Jeremy vs. 187 year old Phil Jackson, but the series does have potential if we see the lights out offense we seen from the Magic in the winning games versus the Cavs.

I try Gary, I tell it like I see it, no bias, just my opinion lol...

I take a different take on that, Tolliver...

I like the fact that hes so competitive that he actually cares to lose...he has a competitive drive and was genuinely upset about the loss...most guys are just there for the buck and would rather be buddies with the opposing team..

Also, I am glad he made his teammates talk to the media...thats the only load they carried during the whole series against the Magic.

This is true, Luxe...

I guess I have a love hate relationship when it comes to Lebron. I love his talent, athleticism and ability to beat any team on his own. But, I hate having him being talked about as the next Jordan, or better than Jordan. Jordan was my all time favorite ball player, and can't help but defend his title as "The Greatest."

I never looked at it that way, that's very true. His team mates did drop the ball big time, and leave him carrying the load, the least they could have done was address the media and put in some work since they failed to on the hardwood.

Derrick June 6, 2009 at 11:50 PM  

Ah, he's a completely different ball player than Jordan and I agree that the comparisons are asinine at the moment, but you gotta realize...what Lebron is doing at the age of 24 is just ridiculous.

If the Cavs get him some help..hes gonna be even dirtier.

JT~Money June 7, 2009 at 12:43 AM  

Very true, he is a completely different ball player, the comparisons are asinine at the moment. But, everything he's doing at the age of 24 is ridiculous and quite unrivaled, if the Cavs get him some help as you say, he could be quite sick. He has the outright potential to ascend his game to a higher plateau and the work ethic and love for the game to reach it. He is a phenom no doubt...
