NOTE: Different Matt was out past curfew Thursday night and “went golfing” yesterday. A “migraine” and miscommunication had him AWOL at MTM HQ, so Grinding Ax Walter Hynes took the ball on no rest, after flying in from Des Moines.
FREEHOLD, NJ – Are you a serious baller? If you think you are or aspire to be, then you need to drop $495 on the table and pick up a pair of Zo2’s. With all the basketball gibberish on this site, I feel compelled to grind my axe on LaVar Ball bald head. You know he would fit right in with another delusional chrome dome from the MTM Management. Sign him up to share his farcical rants with our band of droll readers.
Regarding the brand that the family has created, the name Is complete genius and apropo. Big Baller Brand projects their sales to eclipse the iconic Jordan Brand. After all, Lonzo Ball is a legend in the minds of the Ball Family. Let’s forget about the way he was schooled by Kentucky’s DeAaron Fox who dropped 39 on the baller and his mates. That was obviously luck. Everyone who has a trace of intelligence in basketballology knows that Lonzo and his BIG BALLS are going to save the Los Angeles Lakers. Single–handedly! Do you want to elevate your game? Cannot afford to lace up these magical sneaks? Well, you are a loser! Just ask LeVar Ball.
My prediction? Lonzo Ball will be the next Trajan Langdon. The inflated egos in his camp will backfire and he will be selling the kicks for $49 bucks in Kohl’s by 2019.
Have the New York Rangers Jumped the Shark?
In every failed run at the Stanley Cup, there are some positives that we can take from the season. Face it, fans up in Socialized Medicine Land have suffered longer in recent history. Philadelphia Cryer fans have not seen a Cup raised in forty years.
The positives that I can take from this year include the potential of some young players such as Jimmy Vesey, Oscar Lindberg, JT Miller – along with Mika ” The Shah” Zibanejad and Jesper Fast. This complimented consistent play from Ryan McDonagh, Mats Zuccarello and Michael Grabner. I’m disappointed in the defense of Marc Staal, Dan Girardi and Kevin Klein, though. They showed mental lapses that led to timely goals for opponents. Rick Nash wins the award for Playoff Goat… again! Granted, he teased us with a few goals but disappeared once again when games were on the line. Management needs to trade him to a team that desperately needs offense.
My last suggestion will not sit well with many. It’s time to send King Henrik Lundqvist to the bench or out of town. Antti Raanta showed that he can play. He performed well in thirty games with better save and goals against stats than the king. He is also seven years younger. It’s simply time.
