Unlike last week there is a nice amount of stuff to gab about this week because as always people are stupid and the things they do are …..“Simply RiCOCKulous”!!

1) I’ve made a horrible self realization this week! The realization that I might be 1 of the only REAL NBA Fans left! Now let me clarify what I mean by REAL NBA Fans!  REAL NBA Fans don’t just watch during the playoffs or the holidays. They watch (or try to at least) from the beginning until the end of the season.  REAL NBA Fans don’t just pull for Kobe, LeBron (“THE” Bron in French), D. Wade, or whatever hot young star has the coolest commercial out at the moment. They pull for a TEAM and generally their fave player is the best player on that team! But most importantly, REAL NBA Fans recognize the REAL GOOD NBA PLAYERS regardless of whether they are on the team you like or not. Until this point that recognition of REAL NBA PLAYERS always culminated with the NBA All-Star game! However, this year the FAKE NBA Fans have ruined that!

To illustrate my point I’ll give you 3 guard choices. Player A averages 22.6pts, 7.2 assists, 1.3 steals, 3.6 TO’s and shoots 41.1%. Player B averages 19.4pts, 5.9 assists, 0.8 steals, 2.7 TO’s and shoots 47.1%. Player C averages 14.3pts, 4.2 assists, 0.6 steals, 2.3 TO’s and shoots 44.1%.  Based on the info above, which 2 players would you pick first to be All-Stars?  People with brains would say A 1st and then B.

So tell me how in the HELL does C get selected as an All-Star and the other 2 do not! Player A is Gunman Arenas, and he’s suspended, so I’ll give you a pass when it comes to him not being an All-Star! Player B is Derrick Rose who also has not been voted in and Player C is Allen Iverson who miraculously is an All-Star Starter.

That’s right Allen “I played for the Grizzlies is now a trivia answer” Iverson has made the 2010 NBA All-Star team. My disclaimer here is that I was a HUGE A.I.  fan b4 the season started! I stuck with him through the “We Talking Bout Practice?!?” rant and the “Nobody Likes Me” rant in Detroit. And in my opinion he is one of the most talented players EVER to lace’em up in the league!  However, quite simply put, he doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star this year! Not only have Derrick Rose and Buckshot Arenas had better years but to so has Joe Johnson, Rajon Rando, Brandon Jennings..etc, etc.   So what happened you ask, well A.I. is still immensely popular and was voted in off fan love alone.   I’m mean I’m all for fan love but when something this stupid occurs the D. Stern should be granted like Emergency  Executive Powers and allowed to tell Allen Iverson to re-inact his Grizzlies career and leave before the games start!  For us REAL NBA Fans this is a travesty and probably wasn’t even this bad when Yao Ming was voted in over Shaq in Yao’s  rookie year because  it seamed like EVERYONE in China voted for him!  So to all you FAKE NBA FANS who have no respect for the game…I can only describe you and your 2010 All-Star Version of Allen Iverson as “Simply RiCOCKulous”

Yea, how you got on the team has me beating my head too!!

2) This “Simply RiCOCKulous” is for myself, yea that’s right! I’m giving myself one! Why?? Because at I was all excited when I found out Serena Williams was apparently going bottomless at tennis tournament (take a look here if you don’t believe me)!

The Moon on Venus

Only to be crushed when I  found out that not only was she not bottomless (just flesh colored shorts), but that is was Venus and not Serena! So for biased towards one talented Williams Sister over the other (but can you really blame me Serena was in ESPN’s the Mag’s Body issue and Venus wasn’t), I say to myself… “Simply RiCOCKulous”!

3) If I was going to think of a place in the USA where White People would have to make a stand so they could get an equal shot at something and not be discriminated against (the concept of which still blows my mind!), Augusta Georgia, (home of the Annual Good Ole Boy Invitational Golf Tournament aka the Masters) would be the LAST PLACE on Earth I think that would happen!  However, Augusta Georgia’s newest event in a long line of segregated efforts is (drum roll please) a WHITES ONLY Basketball League! Or as I will call it from now on the NJBA (the Non Jumping Basketball Association).  Now I know just like myself you are wondering what in the Hell?? But League Owner and Creator, Don “Moose” Lewis, (couldn’t make that name up if I tried) says “White  American-born citizens are in the minority now. So now, here’s a league for white players to play fundamental basketball, which they like.” Yep and even the President of the U.S. couldn’t qualify to participate because “only players that are natural-born United States citizens with both parents of Caucasian race are eligible to play in the league.” Fantastic job Moose!  Way to NOT,  make a big deal out of athletics and racial stereotypes “Simply RiCOCKulous”!

So does J.Will (White Chocolate) Count?

And honorable mention for this week:

This one is non-sports related! But because Love is a Game to some I’ve decided to link THIS Simply RiCOCKulous story here for you to enjoy! The morals are 1) Billboards are evil and 2) Treat your significant other, or the one you are cheating on them with right or  your pics  might end up near your local highway!

    Is it easier or harder to cheer on an individual basketball player, baseball player, or football player regardless of the team on which he plays?

    What would you call people who only watch (or can name) NBA players that are on the US men’s basketball team for any given summer Olympic game?

    NJBA

    hahaha. If only the context were equally humorous (rather than just absurd). Reverse discrimination:

    “You can speak more than one language, you can’t join our team.”

    “You can list all fifty states and most of their capitals in random order, you cannot join our team.”

    “You like Asian people and Asian movies and Asian food…hmm, you’ll have to come back for a second audition just so we know if you have a fetish or if you’re really a global citizen, in which case you wouldn’t be able to join or team.” ^_~

    “You can list the Bill of Rights and you’re not in law school….uh, we’ll get back to you.”

    I think its harder to cheer for a fave player if they are not on your team…Like me for instance, My fave NFL player is Vick and b/c he was stupid and did something horrible, he’s not on my Fave team anymore the FALCONS!! But I still follow him and wish him well…Just that my team comes b4 him now!!…and as for those fans that only know Basketball Players on the US team they are casual fans, not Die-Hard or REAL NBA fans, but I think most sports fans are casual fans. And ppl start off as a casual fans and grow it….so its cool…

    And how about the: “What you can read AND WRITE proper English?!?!?….Definitely, not interested in you for our league!”
