So trust in the Lord (commit yourself to Him, lean on Him, hope confidently in Him) forever; for the Lord God is an everlasting Rock [the Rock of Ages]. (Isaiah 26:4 AMP)

Q Parker of (112) drops his brand new album: The Manual on 10/30. In preparation to that, he gives his fans part 2 from his QGasms mixtape volumes. Take a listen, and be sure to support good r/b music. I have listened to the Manual, and it’s definitely one to put in your archives. Check out the video for “Yes” below.

Mercedes Russell has narrowed her choices of where she will play ball for the next 4 years down to the University of Tennessee & Louisville. The 6’5 Center is the #1 recruit for the class of 2013. Mercedes visited Tennessee last weekend, and spent this weekend visiting Louisville, and is expected to make the announcement during a pep rally at 5:30pm (est).
As a Lady Vols fan for over 25years, I am praying that she chooses Tennessee. With the announcement of legendary coach Pat Summitt retiring because of being diagnosed with early onset dementia, it seems that top recruits are just not sure what to expect from long time assistant Holly Warlick. Well I would say, more of the same. Holly has been an apprentice to Pat for over 25 years. Pat Summitt philosophies, and the foundation she built are engrained in Holly. Yet, coach will have her own way of implementing what she learned from Pat.
Mercedes is the labeled as the 2nd coming of Candace Parker, so I know she has to come and put on that orange/white/blue jersey. She will have one of the top guards in the country (Ariel Massengale) throwing her passes in the lane where she will be in position to score easily. And she will have at that time a senior shooting guard named Meighan Simmons who will keep the defense from doubling down on her.
I do believe that when this dominoe falls (Mercedes announces her school) we will see a slew of players making announcements. I mean who wouldn’t want to be on the court with her as their teammate? Like Pat once said about Parker: “All I knew was that I surely didn’t want to have to play against her for 4 years.” Heck you see the look on the Brazilian players face…yep sure fright! I want Mercedes Russell on my team in 2013!
Well I must say I am one happy LAKER fan right now. The Oklahoma City Thunder have just traded away their 6th man of the year, James Harden. Yep you read that right. Harden was up for a contract extension, that technically could have been revisited at the end of the season, but Sam Presti tried to get a deal done by the deadline of 10/31 offering James 4yrs, $53-54M.
First tell me why that’s not a good deal? James get’s paid, and he stays on a true contender?! He get’s traded to Houston, who will pay him a max deal believed to be $60M for 5yrs of service. Seriously, $6M is the difference here? This guy, along with Durant/Westbrook were the future for the OKC Thunder. I hope someone tells James that he has officially become the Joe Johnson of the NBA. He got his money, but he will be stuck at the bottom of the playoff pole, if he is there at all. Being a 6th man, & being THE MAN are two entirely different things. When you are keyed on night after night, with the role players he has..it’s going to be a long 82 games. But hey, I’m a Lakers fan so I just say thank you!
As for OKC, I understand you got Kevin Martin, & Jeremy Lamb in the deal along with picks…but Kevin Martin hasn’t played a full 82 games since…well the beginning of his career. Yes he can score, but if he is not available for the playoffs what good will it do? And what about this chemistry everyone continues to talk about? People saying the Lakers will have problems this season because of possible chemistry issues, well please believe this is a totally different dynamic for this OKC team as well.
The NBA season officially begins 10/30. I pray that DirecTV comes to terms with Time Warner Sports Net, in order for those in California can get the Lakers channel, as for me, NBA League Pass all day.
