Is it just in my mind or is it true that basketball has become a ballerina sport?
Watching the Cavaliers play the Hawks was a stone bore for me not because there wasn't no talent or skills on the players part but because there was no self-challenge of the players. I've seen more self-challenging players watching video games than what I saw last night. Who am I to make such a statement? I am a mother who watched her sons play sports for over ten years. And when those boys played any sport, the zeal of the game was found through raw determination to bring forth your best abilities. That was real entertainment.

LeBron James, selected King of the sport right now was decided by his gifts and talents but it was also selected by moneymakers to create a god to control the momentum of the basketball propriety. They make money when their god delivers. This means they have to create a following that will keep people focused on LeBron James. The sacrifice is on the court. And that sacrifice is a real and raw game of individuals who only go so far to release their capabilities.


I don't know about you but it appears those who are coming up against the Cleveland Cavaliers are approaching the team as though they are standing on holy ground. They act as though they have been stung with some type of venom enabling them to be self-empowered. Heaven forbid if they bring too much and take away the plan to challenge the King. As awesome as Lebron is, he is being stifled as well because he is not being challenged. His opponents act as though there is an invisible fence around him and if they get too close, they will get stung so they let him do whatever he wants when he wants.

Is this what happens when athletes deny their souls to be the best they can be? They play for money and nothing else? It is obvious, there is no natural spontaneous performance—no real TV. I was so glad when Charles Barkley, one of the sports commentators admitted, it was a boring game. If you are not going to challenge yourself what is the use of putting on a uniform?
When Michael Jordan played basketball, his opponents and teammates all were Kings of the court and challenged one another letting the world know, yes Jordan is awesome and so am I. If he wants to stay that way, we will challenge him to make sure! That was exhilarating entertainment. When there is no heart, there is no magic just a paycheck and that is what viewers get.

What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul?

TONY BLAIR FOR EU PRESIDENT? THE THOUGHT OF IT ALONE WOULD MAKE ME WANT TO THROW UP

Remember a man named Tony Blair? Yep, that's him. He was the one who ventured into an illegal war in Iraq together with his other two grubby little mates George W Bush and Johnny Howard. And then, after his resignation as British PM, he became a Middle East 'peace representative' on behalf of the United Nations, achieving absolutely nothing in the process.

GOD, RELIGION AND FRAUD - IT ALL LOOKS THE SAME TO ME
Lebron

While I would be the first person to defend anyone's right to practice their chosen religion unhindered and where and when they please, and while I also acknowledge that some people with a religious background have and still are doing good deeds on behalf of their communities, I reserve my right to highlight and point out to the general community that in all cases religions are based on half-truths, fiction and indeed fraudulent conduct.

THE CIA - A TERRORIST ORGANISATION? NOT YES WE CAN, BUT YES IT IS.

I can remember saying, on this very site in fact, and on 7th March 2007, that the CIA (Central Intelligence Organisation) was acting like a terrorist organisation and by the looks of things, I was damned right.

GOVERNMENTS ABUSING PRINCIPLES OF ANTI-TERRORISM LAWS

When the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York occurred, the immediate aftermath, in terms of revised and additional anti-terrorism legislation just had to be put in place. Many countries, if not most, all revised their legislation to suit their own specific needs regardless of the fact that some of those could well be regarded as dubious in terms of their justification.

IRAN - STUFFED BY RELIGIOUS FANATICISM

What is it with so-called religious leaders that even entices them into running countries and stuffing them in the process? Their motivation has certainly has nothing to do with religion but rather more to do with their hunger for power, in my view.
