[MOVIE] RED TAILS

I can’t wait to got see this movie on 1/20. RedTails stars Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrance Howard, Ne-Yo, Nate Parker, Tristan Wilds and is directed by Anthony Hemingway, produced by George Lucas. Check out the trailer & please support the film.

1944. World War II rages and the fate of the free world hangs in the balance. Meanwhile the black pilots of the experimental Tuskegee training program are courageously waging two wars at once — one against enemies overseas, and the other against discrimination within the military and back home. Racial prejudices have long held ace airman Martin “Easy” Julian (Nate Parker) and his black pilots back at base — leaving them with little to do but further hone their flying skills — while their white counterparts are shipped out to combat after a mere three months of training. Mistakenly deemed inferior and assigned only second-rate planes and missions, the pilots of Tuskegee have mastered the skies with ease but have not been granted the opportunity to truly spread their wings. Until now.
As the war in Europe continues to take its dire toll on Allied forces, Pentagon brass has no recourse but to reconsider these under-utilized pilots for combat duty. Just as the young Tuskegee men are on the brink of being shut down and shipped back home, Col. A.J. Bullard (Terrence Howard) awards them the ultimate chance to prove their mettle high above. Undaunted by the prospect of providing safe escort to bombers in broad daylight — a mission so dangerous that the RAF has refused it and the white fighter groups have sustained substantial losses — Easy’s pilots at last join the fiery aerial fray. Against all the odds, with something to prove and everything to lose, these intrepid young airmen take to the skies in a heroic endeavor to combat the enemy — and the discrimination that has kept them down for so long.

[SPORTS] LAKERS DEFEAT THE ROCKETS 108-99

Kobe Bryant had something to prove last night as he stepped on the floor at Staples Center, after his poor shooting performance in Denver that resulted in him going 6-28, that he knows how to play this game: His Way! After all the criticism he took for not getting the ball inside more when his shot was obviously off, Bryant responding by taking the first shot of the game, and making it. Kobe would actually finish the game shooting 50% on 14-29 with 37pts/8rbs/6asst. The pain in that right wrist is still evident though on a lot of trips down the floor, where you can see Bryant wincing from the pain or simply rotating it continually. As a Laker fan we get so spoiled, because Kobe never complains about his injury, he just shows up for work day in and day out. I asked myself why his legacy on the court is marred with success that’s usually played through injury? But I guess everyone has their legacy that they will live. How much greater when people realize that he not only played when sick (flu) but with torn ligaments, bad knees, & ankles on his way to his 6th championship. Read the rest of this entry »

[SPORTS] LAKERS LOSE TO KINGS, START 0-2


The Lakers lost to the Sacramento Kings last night, 91-100. Here is my perspective.

The game vs the Bulls, was simply turnovers and free throws. This game vs the Kings showed more than ever that Mike Brown better start trusting Darius Morris/Andrew Goudelock soon, or else what Tyreke Evans did will be happening all season. I watched Derek Fisher and Steve Blake get scored on more than 10 times vs Evans, and it wasn’t pretty. Now I’m not here to take away from what Marcus Thorton did, but for everyone who thought Kobe guarded him the whole game, you need a replay..but the way “baby buckets” was shooting it really didn’t matter who was on him.

[SPORTS] LAKERS BACK IN THE HUNT TO ACQUIRE CHRIS PAUL

This is getting more and more confusing by the minute. It’s like just when I get use to one thing, something new comes along. Ah I know what Lamar Odom was feeling. But unlike Lamar, I understand this is the nature of the business, and I must know and always understand, that as a fan of the NBA, more specifically the Los Angeles Lakers, that things change. So my motto is (at least until Jerry Buss is no longer breathing) that I will #TrustInBuss. Well as far as basketball is concerned. Over the last 30 years I have seen the Lakers win 10 championships, and accomplish countless other feats, all in the midst of controversy and sometimes turmoil. They are known as winners. Anyone who say they are a Lakers fan, would never question that aspect of the organization. Read the rest of this entry »

[SPORTS] LAKER PULL OUT OF THE CHRIS PAUL DEAL

After David Stern single handedly brought a dark cloud back over the NBA when he vetoed a trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers, the teams (Laker/Rockets/Hornets) have been working frantically to put a deal together that they hoped would NOT be vetoed by the commissioner. But after hours of revising the deal, and supposedly resubmitting an offer to the League, the Lakers have had enough. It is being reported by ESPN’s Mark Stein that the Lakers have pulled out of the deal completely, instead, trading Lamar Odom to the Dallas Mavericks, and receiving an 8.9mil dollar trade exception in return. Now the question becomes why would the Lakers trade their 6th man of the year to the team that swept them last year? One is the way Lamar Odom reacted to the trade, his literal crying and saying things like: “I don’t know what I’m suppose to do for the Lakers now”…not the right move. The other, its all out pursuit of Dwight Howard. Read the rest of this entry »

[SPORTS] LAKERS/ROCKETS/HORNETS REVISE TRADE INVOLVING CHRIS PAUL


Chris Paul could become a Laker this weekend. After Commissioner Stern vetoed the first trade, which would have sent Pau Gasol to the Rockets, Lamar Odom to the Hornets, along with Rockets Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, & Goran Dragic. Now I’m seeing that the Celtics have agreed to trade Jermaine Oneal to the Hornets (which he would actually become a Laker) to become a part of a package that the Lakers would send to Orlando in hopes of landing the 3 time Defensive Player of the year. I’m not sure what the Celtics would get back in return for him (tacos..lol). But seriously, I just want this deal to be done, because Lamar may not decide to recover from this, and I feel bad for Pau, but we all know this is part of the game.

The bottom line is this, Dwight Howard was pushing for a trade to New Jersey because the NBA nixed the Chris Paul trade. So it’s my belief that when he seen that, playing with Deron become his 2nd choice of pg’s to play with. But now that the trade is still possible, he got permission from Orlando to talk with the Lakers, (also the Mavs, & Nets), so we have to see what happens. But the truth is, I really don’t believe the Mavs have a true chance if they have to give up Jason Kidd, because Howard wants to play with an all-star caliber guard. Someone that can get him the ball in his comfortable spots. Chris Paul is definitely the one he would want to play with.

The Mavericks will sign Vince Carter to a 1yr deal, so I wonder will the Lakers take a look at Rip Hamilton, just to add depth to the roster? Because once the trades go down (if they go down) the bench will have to be revamped. Ah no sleep till the deal is done.

THE LAKERS GOING FOR IT ALL TO TRADE FOR DWIGHT HOWARD & CHRIS PAUL


Well it has been officially spoken, today on ESPN the story broke that the Lakers are ALL IN! They have opened up the entire roster to be traded to get Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. Now we all know that it would take a miracle for the Lakers to pull something this big off, but we are talking about one of the most storied franchises in sports history. Now I will post the link for you to read the story in a bit, but let’s really sit back and imagine what this would mean for this years Laker team, and the subsequent years to follow: EVERYTHING. lol. Not only would the Lakers have set themselves up for life after Kobe Bryant, but they will have also given themselves great opportunity to be in the running NOW for the championship.

JIM BUSS IS FINALLY “OPEN” TO TRADING ANDREW BYNUM

I guess Jim Buss finally woke up, and understood the dynamics of the words: BYNUM IS UNTOUCHABLE. What made that happen? Orlando’s Otis Smith stated that he is open to hearing all offers for it’s all-star center…and now Mitch Kupchack has the right piece to throw there way. Honestly I believe that Bynum has had all the major surgery he will require for the rest of his career, and you cannot deny his talent, or work ethic..except for waiting to get surgery too late last season, but hey I chalk that up to immaturity, versus work ethic.

But seriously what does this mean for the Lakers? It’s the possibility of bringing Kobe Bryant together with another version of “Superman”..but this one actually respects him and wants to play with him. Like Kobe who has modeled so much of his game after his idol, Michael Jordan, with the rings to match…Dwight Howard (even if he never says it) is ready to do the same thing…and acquire the bling to match. I believe he wants to do it while he knows Kobe still has that fire in his belly to get it done. Read the rest of this entry »

NBA TRADE RUMORS: LA LAKERS PURSUING DWIGHT HOWARD & CHRIS PAUL?


The Lakers know they have to make a few major moves right now, before the new agreement takes away any leverage they have for creating a new dynasty in LA. So the latest rumor has them pursuing both all-stars: Dwight Howard and Chris Paul. Now will they end up with them both? Ha I wish! But is truly possible to get one? Yes! But the major question is: which one? Read the rest of this entry »
