3 Things: Sheed, Make-up Call, AI

First, Raasheed Wallace has joined the New York Knicks. Assuming Rasheed has some legs left/ isn't in Petron-shape this makes sense for 10-15 minutes of solid post-defense. But where else is it that DBSF heard about a PF or big man that on the offensive side of the court prefers the company of the perimeter and is zealot of the 'shoot your way out of a slump' ideology? That's right, half the Knicks' roster.

Second, the NBA plans to fine floppers. The players are all like, "Just another way for Stern to take a penny." The fans are all like, "Whatever. Why isn't there an NFL game on Tuesday and Wednesday nights?" DBSF's take? Classic Anti-Europeanism/ South Americanism. Flopping is a practice of futbolers, most of whom are of Euro and Argentinian/ Brazilian-descent. Maybe this is a make-up call for the no-jerseys, jewelry, or chains on the bench racism targeted at four-fifths of the league.

Thirdly,  every October DBSF listens to Jewelz aka Allen Iverson's "40 Bars" single because of it's obvious influence on Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang Clan, Gang Starr et al. Well DBSF was caught by the following lyric: "For the year 2G the rap game change for one name/ Jewelz aim to slain anything on this plane/ Remains are found when the best kept secret get heated/ You went platinum wit a ghost writer, so in the game you cheated" To paraphrase Allen is saying that he's a rapper of significance and that some other unnamed rapper didn't write his/ her lyrics and, thus, is unworthy of merit. In between those two points Allen is pretty much incoherent. But is he? One more time: "For the year 2G the rap game change for one name/ Jewelz aim to slain anything on this plane" Slain anything on this plane? DBSF's thought? Terrorist.

  1. DBSF is the Mitt Romney of the rap game.

    I'm not sure what that means.
