in unrelated news.....


I dont have much to say, i dont have manys ways to say it. I have been buisy, neglectful, and misprioritizing. I havent been on here in such a long time. The reason for that, is because i have really not been on SLAM as much as i once was. It might be because i dont have a computer class this year, it might be because the comment rules basically restrict fun, or it might be because the quailty of everything has in my eyes gone down significantly......

Check out my boy, Los. Stummbled across him by accident, he is by far the best unknown rapper out their right now.

His blog -

Look him up on youtube for proof!

Im tired, and im going to let you finish but BETCATS is the best blogger of all time.

Fantasy Hoops! Who to watch...

A Moose Track

Basketball season is almost upon us. Fantasy basketball has drafted (or has almost drafted). And my league has already auto-drafted based on our pre-draft rankings. I think I scored. In a 12-team league, here's my team at the moment...

Gilbert Arenas
Stephen Jackson
Russell Westbrook
LeBron James
Paul Millsap
Carmelo Anthony
David Lee
Jermaine O'Neal
Anthony Randolph
Rodney Stuckey
Udonis Haslem
Luol Deng
Louis Williams

What do you guys think? I think I'm primed for domination. Are there any moves I should make? Trades? Add/Drops? The main dudes who are on the waiver wire are Kellena Azuibuke, James Harden, Robin Lopez, Matt Barnes, Travis Outlaw, Anthony Morrow, Anthony fantasy hoops skills aren't on par with my regular hoops knowledge, so if there's any advice that anyone can give to me, I'd love it.

For sleepers this year in terms of production, Anthony Randolph is my number one guy to keep our eyes on. The second-year forward will get his chance, and he will take it. I think he'll definitely be in the running for the MIP award and he will put up consistent numbers across the board. I just traded Marvin Williams for him, and I'm psyched about that.

Villanueva will be a beast this year. I think he'll work well in Detroit, and he'll get the points--but if he can get the boards then he'll be an absolute stud. Jeff Green will get his. Jason Thompson will be a good utility guy. Personally, I'm not worried about Agent Zero at all, I think he'll bounce back and put up 23/9/3. Hopefully our blognamesake will do it.

Andrea Bargnani is a sick fantasy player. If he can grab a couple boards he's one the most valuable ones in the league. Brooke Lopez is gonna break out this season. I'm still skeptical of Oden. I think the dude's only gonna end up being worth 12/9 in his career, which is solid, but definitely not where they thought he'd end up. I'd pass on Oden.

Derrick Rose is a good fantasy player, but only if you don't convert many turnovers. I had him on my squad last season and he turned the ball over too much for my liking, anyways. And yes, on the PG's, my man Rajon Rondo is going to perform. He'll get you 14/8/6, and hold me to that and use it against me if I'm wrong.

That's pretty much all I got. Anything you guys want to add, or any advice you can give me on my team, please let me know. For now, I'm out...

Entertaining Hoops Pictures ***PART TWO***

A Moose Track

We all like funny things. Dane Cook. Family Guy. The Los Angeles Clippers. That's why I decided to put together some funny hoops pictures in one post for us all to enjoy. This is Part Two, because almost a year ago I posted the first edition; you can look at it here. Let's go...

Considering the big fella plays for Danny Ferry now, that's pretty embarrassing...


Duncan's a little over-excited here. Wasn't programmed to smile.

Ballet is more fun than basketball anyways.

Does this need explanation?

That's a problem.

There are truly some beautiful Western Conference big men.

Allen really wants......the basketball?

This move is more reliable than Hughes's jumpshot....

Two people here, ladies and gentlemen...

*Whistle* Flagrant two. Technical foul.

Parker's neck DIDN'T break.

I thought Kidd was married?

What, it's just extra support.
Tony's new wrap-around move....

Thanks to all of the sites that I posted onto here from; I got all of the pictures from Google. So there it easy.

My Detox

Yeah so since I have a couple of free minutes on my hand today I wanted to post a little note letting yall know I'm still alive and kicking. Sorry DP vol 2 hasn't dropped yet but I've been writing scholorship essays out of the ass and so right now vol 2 is my equivilant to Dr. Dre's the Detox......the shit might never come out. That doesn't mean I'm not working on it or I'm not working on other ish. NBA is weeks away and that means I'll be back on my Bball shit for the next 7 plus months. And I mos def agree with Moose, Slamonline isn't the same anymore. Two years ago, I used to be so fuggin physched to go to digital photography at school. Not just to look at this chick called Victoria Hunter(shout out to my teammates Gerad and Ife who are probably reading this now!) but to get on slamonline and just debate about anything from basketball to what to get a chick for valentine's day. I miss THOSE Post up Days. Holly is still the shit and her post are better than 2 years before but the comment section is falling off big time. I'm not going to lie I don't even go on SLAmonline but about a couple times out of the week. Maybe my dedication will return when I see more familiar faces but hey I digress. Y'all be easy this weekend and be safe. Tonight I'm off to get into "something" but I haven't found out yet. Should be an adventure.

p.s. To my teammate chris, dog if you're reading this I just wanted to let you know....Reebok fitted hats? We off that......

Original as always

A Moose Track

Yes, the title is an oxymoron. And the above picture lets everyone know what's on my mind. That, and the fact that I'm not getting the opportunity to write the Celtics season preview for SLAMOnline this year. And, I was kind of outraged that BETCATS didn't get the nod this time. Sorry about that one, BET.

The Packers v.s. Vikings game this Monday was great. Felt like the playoffs there. Despite the recent (ok, not so recent) annoyances following Brett Favre, I always have to cheer for the Minnesota teams (damn right I was watching the Tigers-Twins tiebreaker tonight. AMAZING game). I have to admit that I only watched the first half, bedroom was calling my name after wrestling with this book for the better part of the night. It was still a great game.

On to more SLAM talk. None of the regulars are showing up anymore. TADOne comes every now and then, Eboy is nowhere to be found, and all of us at HIBACHI (myself included) are commenting less frequently. But I'm sounding like a broken record here, I'll stop complaining about that. On to my next speculation...

Has SLAMOnline sold out? I mean, I know that the economy is tough on everything, but the advertising is getting a little too much for SLAM. SLAMTV: Powered by: EA Sports? Really? And who else grimaced at the advertisements that ran at the bottom of countless articles in the latest issue? I don't like it, but I know I'm being a crybaby, so don't rip me in the comments...

On to the Top 50, and how I think it should stack up from now on (this was written on the day that Pierce was ranked 17, so don't say that I got anything wrong or anything. Okay, here are my rankings...

16. Pau Gasol
15. Tony Parker
14. Chris Bosh
13. Kevin Garnett
12. Brandon Roy
11. Tim Duncan
10. Carmelo Anthony
9. Kevin Durant
8. Deron Williams
7. Dirk Nowitzki
6. Amare' Stoudemire
5. Dwight Howard
4. Dwyane Wade
3. Kobe Bryant
2. Chris Paul
1. LeBron James

This is just rough, nothing concrete, nothing huge. Yeah, I put Chris Paul over Kobe Bryant. Why? Because I believe that CP3 will have better all-around stats than Kobe, and that he will be a better team leader. I see the Lakers as a definite, definite force, but I think that Kobe's stats will deflate this year with the addition of Artest, and I see Ronny as a possibility for implosion. In my opinion, Chris Paul gets the nod over Kobe for the first time, based on what SLAM has laid out as the criteria for the list.

Until next time, a track...

What Else Is New?

Hey everyone, just a quick update from me (at least by my standards).
I graduated HS on Friday afternoon, had formal (which is like prom I guess). Then afterparty etc etc. So I'm all done with High School now except for these big-ass exams which start in 2 weeks time and finish around November 30ish.
So until then, you will not be blessed with my presence. Shame, I know. But study comes first
In other news, we've started to get the NFL here and I'm enjoying it. We saw the Vikings v. 49'ers game, and that final pass by that really, really old guy for the Vikings was.. good.
The Lions won. Hmm.
I think I'm going to cheer for the most thug team in the League. Lemme know who that is. Or you can just say why I should support your team.
The NRL Grand Final is on today. It's our equivalent of the SuperBowl. If any of you are interested, it'll be all over youtube tomorrow. Expand your horizons.
Speaking of expanding horizons, I'm really digging 'Girl Talk', he's a guy who does mashup music from top 40 type stuff and fuses it with hip-hop, rock, pop most genres actually.

Have a listen.
