LeBronathan James

LeBron James

I believe it's time to put all the speculation to rest.  I know you were waiting on me to weigh in on the LeBron/Kobe/Jordan comparisons and I'm finally ready.  LeBron James is arguably the greatest basketball player we've ever seen.  Here's why:
  • Kobe and Jordan both had Hall of Famers in their supporting cast.  Shaq was the most dominant player in his prime and Scottie Pippen was easily the #2 player in basketball, after Jordan of course.  The only reason LeBron didn't win earlier in his career was because of his supporting cast.  His teammates were Boobie Gibson and DeLonte West -_-
  • LeBron is a team player and usually looks to pass first, unlike the other two.  This guy gets triple doubles as often as a teenagers get pimples.  The last time Kobe got a triple double, it was a SportsCenter headline.
  • He's the size of a power forward (think Karl Malone - look it up), but with the quickness of a point guard (think Rajon Rondo)
  • LeBron is the youngest player to do EVERYTHING.  Youngest #1 overall pick, youngest at every thousand point milestone, youngest triple double, youngest to average 30 points...I could be here all day.  And remember, when Kobe came out of high school, he was trash his first year.
  • And, just look at his stats: Career Assits ~ LeBron (6.9) Jordan (5.3) Kobe (4.7)  Triple Doubles ~ LeBron (35) Jordan (28) Kobe (18)

So do yall agree with me?

Broke Ballers

Terrell Owens, Allen Iverson, Antoine Walker, Vince Young.  The list goes on. What do all these guys have in common? Well, they're broke. Despite once being millionaires and world class athletes, these dudes are broke.  But, it didn't have to be that way.  There are plenty of dudes who have been able to parlay their sports careers into wealth.

Take Magic Johnson for example. He's parlayed his basketball career into an empire. Even after being diagnosed with HIV, which could have been career (and life) ending, Magic just kept buying Starbucks & movie theaters.  And look at him now, he owns 2/3 of L.A.  Michael Strahan.  He's got a gap in his teeth and now he sits next to a perky White girl on a national morning talk show.  He's winning.  George Foreman wasn't smart enough to give his 12 kids different names, but he was smart enough to slap his name on that grill.

That's why it baffles me when you hear of the latest, former millionaire, who's filing for bankruptcy.  I mean, how many chains and rims did you buy?  Bet you regret poppin that last $600 bottle in the club don't you.  Until athletes (and Black people for that matter) understand the difference between being rich and being wealthy, going broke will always be an issue.

Let me break it down for you: as long as you're cashing a check endorsed by someone else, YOU AIN'T WEALTHY.

Honey Soy Chicken Thighs

Chicken Recipe #575830296

And this one is a good one!  Honey Soy Chicken Thighs...yessss!  So I mistakenly doubled the sauce ingredients for this recipe...oh well, the sauce is delicious, so it's cool.  These are the real recipe ingredients.

4 thighs
Salt & Pepper
1 TB oil
1 TB ketchup
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/2 c. honey
1 or 2 garlic cloves, minced
8X8 dish

I didn't even take pictures of this while I was making it cuz I didn't know how it was going to turn out but it's amazing so I needed yall to know about it ASAP.  So let's pretend we have pictures:

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2.  Season the chicken with salt & pepper.  Not too much salt, the soy sauce is already salty.
3.  Spray dish with cooking spray
4.  Pour the sauce over the chicken and coat the chicken.  Place chicken skin side down.
5.  Cook for 30 minutes.  Turn chicken.  Cook for another 30 minutes.
6. Lower temperature to 375 degrees, cook for another 15 minutes.

Your chicken will be fall off the bone delicious.  You can thank me in the comment section.

Disappearing Acts

You ever meet a guy and yall really connect? You have great conversation, you really enjoy each other's company.  You go out on a few dates and things are starting to look really good.  Then, all of a sudden....out of the never hear from him again?  The hell?

This disappearing act is all too familiar to us women.  But why?  Male meth-heads, why do you get our hopes up only to abruptly let us down?  Were you ever really into your lady friend or were you being fake the whole time?  And why not just say, "Hey, I think you're really nice but *insert truth here*."

I was recently a victim of one of these magicians.  He came into my life like whirling dervish and then poof he was gone.  Damn, and I didn't even get him to complete an exit interview...

Book Review: Mockingjay

This was the final book in the Hunger Games series and there was a lot going on....almost too much. Well, I guess they needed to wrap everything up.  In this book, we see the underclass rise up against the oppressors. And as to be expected, there are a lot of deaths. There aren't too many jaw dropping moments, until the end, but the author finally resolves the Kat-Peeta-Gale love triangle. I wish it was the other way around but hey, what do I know.

While I was reading this book I watched the first Hunger Games movie.  It was just aight.  

Next Up: Joan Rivers ~ I hate everyone starting with Me
