Is Mark Cuban Bored?

Dancing With The Stars?  I can’t believe a guy like Mark Cuban is doing this gig.  I’ve always flipped past the show just to see which old NFLers or past 90210 stars are on it…just for a quick laugh.  But Mark Cuban.  Isn’t this guy a busy billionaire?  Does he really have nothing better to do with his time rather than learn how to dance?  The only other reason for this would be his need for some publicity.  Maybe he’s tired of running his mouth or running on the court and getting all those massive fines.  This might be his attempt to pay them off.  It’ll be interesting to see what kind of outfit they put this guy in.

It’s been confirmed by many sources that everyone’s main Chinese man Yi Jianlian has signed with the Milwaukee Bucks. How damn long did this take? Since he held out, there’s now an extra high expectation for him in training camp to come out and be a phenomenal player. I never saw this coming to such a peaceful conclusion. I thought there was going to be government demands in China, etc etc. And what happened to Yi needing some love? I’m sure Milwaukee’s Asian population has not changed since Yi said he wanted to play in a larger market. Or has it? Maybe the Bucks shipped in some fresh eye candy for his pleasure. I remember reading that when the Superbowl came to Detroit last year that there was a mass influx of prostitutes to both Detroit and Windsor, Ontario (across the boarder). It was something in the thousands. Could it be possible that the Bucks told Yi’s camp that they have flown in some potential? Probably not, but hey, it’s fun to think about it.

The Magic just acquired Adonal Foyle, which makes the Magic’s frontcourt one of the most powerful in the league. Although Foyle had a weak season in ’06-’07, he is still capable of being a solid frontcourt partner of Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis.   This was a terrific addition for the boys in blue, but is in enough?  I know I ask this question quite a bit, but when you look at the rest of the east, you have to ask yourself if you think that this powerful frontcourt is really enough to get the Magic deep into the playoffs.  The answer is no!  I don’t even believe these guys will make it past the first round.  I solely place the blame for my prediction on the Magic’s lack of backcourt.  That’s where it all starts.  Jameer Nelson and Hedo Turkoglu are as weak of a backcourt as the league has seen in recent years.  Nelson has yet to prove he is a good point guard in the league, and Turkoglu’s inconsistency will only become more significant as he gets less shots with Rashard Lewis in town.  With Carlos Arroyo and J.J. Redick coming off the bench, there’s just not much depth for the coach to dip into!  If these guys make it past the first round of the playoffs, I give everyone that has just read this to rub it in my face, but I have a feeling I won’t be getting any comments come that time of the season.

Mrs. Peja Stojakovic!  Yes, non other than Aleka Kamila.  This beauty was a greek model ( and possibly still might be?).  She must really dig a guy that can hit a jump shot, because Peja is really no prize.  Hopefully Peja gives her something to cheer about this season.  Overall, we need to send our congrads to Aleka as she joins past winners.  Check them out!

In honour of the Kobe vs. LeBron debate recently posted here, I felt it was right to put up a great LeBron video for everyone’s viewing pleasures.  Since I recently put up a Kobe video here, it is Lebron Bron’s turn. Out of all the videos I was browsing through, this one is completely of Bron in high school.   It’s a little long, but the entire thing is ridiculous.    Here we go…..

After reading a little profile on Allen Iverson, I’ve discovered a few things that us fans obviously find interesting:

-He enjoys drawing in his free time, as well as reading Sports Illustrated

-His favourite food is lasagna

-His favourite actor is Samuel L. Jackson

-Enjoys traveling to New York

-Lists Philadelphia as his favourite NBA city (I’m sure this is one is a little out of date).
