Arenas Showing World That We Are Indeed Fools

"You were fooled because you believed it was about me. I believe it takes five. But you're not a fool, are you?"

Many Adidas commercials boast this slogan promoting teamwork amongst the company's endorsers. Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Tracy McGrady and Gilbert Arenas each reverberate the slogan throughout their individual commercials promoting their personally endorsed shoes. Arenas is part of Adidas' new strong campaign to corner the basketball market. With the Nike's of the world having stars such as Lebron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kobe Bryant under contract, Adidas might have found themselves a true star under the radar.

With all the current news being about Allen Iverson and his move to Denver, many have failed to honestly recognize the type of season that Gilbert Arenas is having. Arenas has evolved over the past year and a half before the NBA fan's eyes. His true rise to fame came last year in an unforgettable series between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Washington Wizards. Arenas has carried that momentum from last year's playoffs into this season and has improved upon it greatly.

29.2 PPG 4.1 RPG 6.4APG 2.1 SPG

The numbers speak for themselves.

Not Convinced? Well when your stat line reads 60 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists after a game which Kobe Bryant guarded you (and gave a lame excuse for Arenas’ performance), that should solidify your status amongst the elite.

Jerry Colangelo and the rest of USA Basketball skipped over Arenas for the USA roster. Big Mistake.

Vote Gilbert Arenas for the NBA All-Star Game. Only a fool wouldn’t.

But you’re not a fool, are you?

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/17/22

3 Up 1. Dr. King Weekend - I love this weekend, because, I'm just a big fan of Dr. King. Sure, this is the weekend of many who will ill-use his quotes, water down his message and purpose, and hold up his work in such a way to accommodate and support their message - at times, it's comical.  However, it's a weekend to be reminded, to reflect, and to celebrate his life. Don't ever forget, Dr. King was hated during his time. He was killed for fear of what he would bring to America. Let's not forget that as we reflect this weekend. 

WWE Day 1 Review: Back to the WWE Product

I immediately warn you, this review will be skewed. Why? Well, yours truly hasn't followed the WWE product since Summerslam. I just haven't been interested in any way through 2021, and finally, I stopped hanging on with the hope that the product will hook me. I just simply gave up. There is too much out there to wait.  RAW has been atrocious - I don't even skim through the DVR recordings anymore unless something pops up in the general wrestling news feed worth seeing. Smackdown will typically and occasionally get a fast-forward style of viewing (mainly due to having to see Roman Reigns' work), and NXT feels more and more like a product that is Triple-A baseball - it's okay, but I can spend time invested into other products.  So yeah, I've been out of the loop. And this review surely will reflect that. However, with a new year (and a lazy Saturday Night), I gave the WWE my time and interest. I wasn't disappointed. And this is good heading into the Royal Rumbl

IMPACT Hard to Kill 2022 Review: "Mickie is in the Rumble. ROH is here. Wild times, Yo"

IMPACT Wrestling kicked off their 2022 campaign with big noise that made waves throughout pro wrestling and has now set them up for some intriguing things ahead. Before this event even took to the airwaves, there was the subtle, yet huge bomb, that was the voice of Pat McAfee on FOX announcing Mickie Jam...err, excuse me...IMPACT Knockout champion, Mickie James, would be in the Women's Royal Rumble. Yes, that's wrestling in 2022. Like you, I too was stunned. I sat there with Smackdown as backdrop entertainment, just to snap up wide-eyed and amazed, rewinding it, over and over again. You know, just to make sure I wasn't going crazy. So yeah... And then of course Hard to Kill happened. And this event continues to be such a fitting name for a company that truly embodies that slogan as it moves forward. Right now, that includes acknowledgment from the industry leader on national television, as well as offering up a metaphorical couch to its one-time rivals in ROH, for them to c

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/9/21

3 Up 1. Justice for Ahmaud Arbery - It won't bring Ahmaud back. It won't right the wrong done. I'm not even sure if it provides solace for his loved ones. However, having those three men finish their lives in prison is the most that could have been done. Kudos to Judge Timothy Walmsley and the point he made by holding a minute of silence to prove it was just a fraction of how long they chased Arbery.  2. Sidney Poitier - I learned about Poitier through a film class in High School. To this day, I'm thankful for a teacher to recognize the greatness of black actors and the contributions of others to the entertainment industry. From "To Sir with Love" to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", I adored his work, and him as a person. A life well-lived.
