Barkley on playing against basketball legends for the first time: “Anytime you play against a legend of the game, it’s exciting.  The first time I played against Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Kevin McHale it was exciting…The first time I played against Magic Johnson and Larry Bird I was like ‘wow.’”

Friday Fire: Do You Still Love Sports?

Posted in Blogroll on December 19th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Writing sports you precluded from loving games with fan eyes. You have to be objective no matter what and I don’t know it that’s a good thing. Some writers use stats to corroborate their “expert” opinions and others–including myself–want to know why, where, what and how. I speak from the fan’s mind because there’s information I want to know. What was the moment that sparkled grand in a young athlete’s mind and spurred her onto the path of game highs and lows ultimately leading to greatness? Why did you lose this game tonight? How did that old scruffy dude on the street influence you to becoming the amazing player you have become? That thing with your bat…who taught you that? When did you fall in love with basketball? Do you think we should know everything about you regardless of what’s going on in our (writers and fans) personal lives? Are you damned if you do, damned if you don’t? Do you really need a coach at the pro level? As the media climate gets crazy and more jaded by another violation of the shot clock, I have to ask the question: Do you still love sports?

Friday Fire: Who is Hollywood’s Greatest Villian?

Caught this question out of the San Diego pelican briefed air from my peoples Delinda Lombardo. If you haven’t seen the Dark Knight then don’t even comment because Heath Ledger (R.I.P.) changed the game to 2008 insane. From Queen Akasha in Queen of the Damned, Dr. Christian Szell in the Marathon Man and  Blackula to Candyman, Palo in the Believers and Darth Vader in the Empire Strikes Back, cats are getting creepier and more evil by the minute. Could you imagine if the Dark Knight was rated R? My goodness. Yo Arnold! I used to like you, but that was way back when you were beating up bikers in bars and making 4 year old kids sound like their grits were imported from Austria.

Bet…

If anyone carries a sledge hammer and says “I’m your number one fan”, ya better run while ya still can bruh.

Is Eddie Murphy really going to play the Riddler?
