Morning(ish) Bog: LeBron Gets Dunked On


Photo via here.


I don't care how many outlets repeat this story of Nike confiscating a video tape of LeBron getting dunked on at his basketball camp; that story made this day a good one. Gilbert might have six broken knees and 13 broken elbows, but a guy who goes to a Southeast playground while still injured to play against a random assortment of amateur players would likely not pull that particular high school hall monitor stunt. Haha, Cleveland.

Speaking of which, the Wiz erected a new Gilbert Arenas banner on their arena. See it here. That's confidence, if nothing else. Yes, the Mission Accomplished joke has already been made.

Brendan Haywood, please shut up. Sounds like some blockhead on TV yesterday who said Michael Jackson "broke the color line" to white audiences by black entertainers. I wasn't aware Jackson was performing in the late 50's-early 60's. Wonder what guys like Chuck Berry and Little Richard have to say?

LeCryBaby is a punk for that one. He should be laughed out of existence.

Haha--not at all shocked LeTravel is such a baby and a poor loser. Can't wait to heckle him at the Wiz game(s) this year. What a joke!!

If you don't like Haywood, that's cool, capsfan77, but he never said MJ was exclusively responsible for anything. He framed the accomplishments within a context and put him alongside other pioneers. It's hard to deny that he had an incredible influence on entertainment and opened many doors. Love it or hate it, MTV wouldn't be the same.

What else is there to say about Lebron?
