Dome Pondering Import - Mark Cuban On ESPN First Take



Thank you! Thank so much Mr. Cuban! I completely agree with Mark Cuban's recent position on ESPN's First Take where he pretty much confronted all basketball "analysts" and media, specifically, the utterly ignorant and annoying, Skip Bayless for their absurd comments and statements in evaluating games and situations. 

Bayless, who has bascially earned his fame through idiotic comments that are against the grain, was publically embarrassed by Cuban for his lack of knowledge when it comes to his comments, especially his overly arrogant and shallow comments when it comes to LeBron James.

Those of us who root against the Miami Heat, have given our reasons for the anti-James position. However, overall, there is a tremendous amount of respect there. Yet, Bayless continues his idiotic comments against the newly crowned NBA Finals MVP.

Without getting too much on Bayless, there are others out there who do the same, and offer comments that are downright fickle. Anyone remember Chris Broussard claiming the Heat would dominate the next few years? Then when they were down 3-2 to the Boston Celtics, Broussard stated they needed to break the Heat up as this team will not get it done. And of course, now, he's proclaiming LeBron James is set up to win the next three years. 

Eye roll. 

And of course my favorite - all of the so-called analysts that bashed the Knicks during the Carmelo Anthony trade negotiations when the trade was in limbo stating the deal was a no-brainer. Now they are the same folks claiming that Anthony can't co-exist with Stoudemire. 

And to be honest, a lot of it is dished out by ESPN, whose analysis, feedback, and overall evluation of any subject is downright insulting, or plain annoying. These days, ESPN has become more yellow journalism than the actual "world-wide leader of sports" they claim to be.

Once again, Thank Mr. Cuban for saying what so many of us have felt for so long. And thank you for delivering the line of the year (possible new DP award?), "You have a presumption, people care what you say. They don't". 

Awesome.

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Hustle (2022)

What is it about?

Adam Sandler - Stanley Sugarman Juancho Hernangomez - Bo Cruz Queen Latifah - Teresa Sugarman Favorite Scene:   Kermit and Bo line up at center court and Kermit begins the trash talk to get inside of Bo's head, eventually taking him off his game.  Favorite Quote:   "I'll say one last inspirational thing to you: they can't kill you if you're already dead." Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
