Limits, like fears, are often just an illusion

January 21, 2011

Before I sleep =D

A couple of friend of mine today asked about on how the stock market works. I keep on getting this question a lot since I always post (FB and Twitter)the behavior of the market from my perspective (an amateur at that). And, I answer them as best as I can. Then they say that it is scary, because it is like gambling and sh*t.  We often fear what we do not know.  Whenever I am scared of doing things that are new to me. I always remember this speech BY THE GREATEST PLAYER TO EVAH PLAY THE GAME OF BASKETBALL, Michael Jordan.

And I quote “Never say never, because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion”. Here is that part in his speech.  Absorb….

Blake Griffin fo real??

Blake is a beast hands down. Every time he dunks the ball, it is if he’s always angry at the rim. This post is dedicated to Blake. Ironically, today he “only” had 29 points and eight rebounds, ending his streak of double-doubles at 27 games, and the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 126-111 Wednesday night to win their third in a row.

For all the marbles..

June 17, 2010

We are within 24 hrs of a Super Bowl/March Madness/winner-take-all-style Game 7 match between two of the leagues most historic franchises the LA LAkers vs the Boston Celtics. A little bit of history. The Lakers and Celtics have met previously in four Game 7s, with the Celtics prevailing every time. Bill Russell and Co. made a habit of it against Jerry West, Elgin Baylor (and later, Wilt Chamberlain) in the ’60s, beating them in three Game 7s. And then the original Big Three of Larry Bird, Robert Parish and Kevin McHale outlasted the Lakers’ Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and James Worthy in 1984. For all his Finals experience, Jackson, with 10 rings in 12 previous appearances, has never coached a Game 7, which of course means that Kobe and Pau Gasol have never played in one. This will also be the first Finals Game 7 for Celtics stars Allen, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo. Although the Celtics have been on several game 7’s in their playoff runs from the their title in 08 and from last year.

I really do hope that this isn’t a close game, because the exitement is just killing me. No matter the outcome, for the NBA and it’s fans, it’s all so perfect.

So.. Where will LBJ be next season??

May 14, 2010

We just witnessed the Boston Celtics eliminate the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second round of this years playoffs. You just have to feel the pain for Lebron James. Year after year of heart breaking playoff loss. Makes me wonder, LBJ is probably the most gifted athlete we have ever seen but his heart and will is always in question. He has the power of Karl Malone and the speed of Michael Jordan but yet, year seven into his career he has zero to none championship ring. He has indeed won back to back MVP awards but the MVP is nothing without the ring. The basketball world will never stop comparing LBJ to Kobe, and this season’s playoffs is never an exception. Banged up Kobe has a broken finger, sprained ankle, back spasms but has 4 straight 30 pt + games…. While Lebron has a little elbow bump and plays like sh*t and crys.

This summer will be the most exciting free agent market in league history. Some of the BIGGEST names and I mean BIG will be swapping teams. Top names are: Lebron, Wade, Bosh and Amare. I will make a fearless forecast on where LBJ will land this summer. Experts from ESPN thinks it’ll be either New York, Chicago or New Jersey.

Finals between LAL and CLE: a conspiracy theory

May 5, 2010

It’s the NBA playoffs and basketballs fans around the world are glued to their TV sets and magnifying every thing that is happening. In yesterday’s game 2 between the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Fans are speculating that the league is helping Lebron and his team mates win the series. This arises because of bogus calls such as the image shown above. So.. let me know what you think. Also see this video from youtube disecting Lebrons everystep. As much as I want a CLE and LAL finals, lets just be fair. Lastly, fearless forecast SA Spurs will be this years champs, eventhough they lost to PHO yesterday.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!!

April 16, 2010

And then there were 16, oh yeah! Sweet sixteen. I am a BIG basketball fan (heck i just played ball this morning before goin to work), and we are now in the second half of the season in the NBA.

“The NBA playoffs” this is where the lights are the brightest, where you showcase the spectacular, and where you can be an immortal. OK, lets see what we have in the first round…

  • WEST
  • (1)Los Angeles Lakers vs (8)Oklahoma City Thunder
  • (2)Dallas Mavericks vs (7)San Antonio Spurs
  • (3)Phoenix Suns vs (6)Portland Trailblazers
  • (4)Denver Nuggets vs (5)Utah Jazz
  • EAST
  • (1)Cleveland Cavaliers vs (8)Chicago Bulls
  • (2)Orlando Magic vs (7)Charlotte Bobcats
  • (3)Atlanta Hawks vs (6)Milwaukee Bucks
  • (4)Boston Celtics vs (5)Miami Heat

Who wants a Lakers vs Cleveland Finals? ME! ME!! ME!!! If the Lakers and the Cavs do meet in the finals, it will be a MEGA bout. Similar to a Pacquiao vs Mayweather collision. I personally do not want the Lakers to repeat this year. I want a different NBA Champ every season. And……. I loose every playoff season in odds beating, I am really an unlucky gambler but I still gamble.. crap!

It will be an exciting NBA playoffs so fasten your seatbelt and hold on for a wild ride. Lets see if there are any surprises in the 2nd round.
