Today The Fightins featured a blog I happened to stumble upon the other day on my own, and it has some fantastic stuff, namely the drawing of Cliff Lee riding a unicorn that I saw on The Fightins. It also has a great drawing called “Summer of Love,” which seemed to have been a big project for the author in the off-season, as well as even a drawing of Kanye West, of whom I may have mentioned before that I am a fan. Here are some pictures of the aforementioned below; click to enlarge and then definitely check out AlrightMike to see the rest of this talented “drawer’s” collection of work:

“Cliff Mounts Unicorn with Rainbows…”

“Summer of Love”


(Here is a link to a dope full-resolution version of the “Summer of Aces” drawing he made that is displayed above in the middle…big enough to posterize it, if you will…)

This is a pretty awesome visualization of every NBA Championship Ring (organized by team) from the year 1947 onward.  One thing to note is that, try as you may, you will not find a ring of LeDouche’s in this picture, as he has yet to win an NBA title; last night’s beautiful loss to the Dallas Mavericks dropped him to 0-2 in the Finals during his “productive” 8-year career:

This has to be one of the cooler things a sports franchise has ever done, despite the fact that the management are the people that put this together and, in reality, have nothing to do whatsoever with the outcome on the court on any given night and, thus, are in no position to be guaranteeing anything…but now I’m just getting critical.  Golden State’s fans have a reputation for being loud, loyal and coming out in droves wearing those dope Warriors’ colors and certainly deserve a competitive team…so props to the higher-powers drafting a contract guaranteeing the following things:


(click for a closer look or, alternatively, look at the cliff’s notes version I’ve outlined/stolen from another website below)

The contract stipulates that:

1. THE CLUB will reach the 2012 NBA Playoffs.
2. THE CLUB will have a player participate in the 2012 NBA All-Star Game in Orlando.
3. THE CLUB will win 25 or more home games at Oracle Arena.
4. THE CLUB will honor a Risk-Free Renewal, with a 5% Interest Guarantee Option for the 2011-12 NBA season.

Now if only the Warriors could draw up a contract guaranteeing that the Heat would never win another game…that would be impressive.

Derrick Rose slammed home the MVP against the Knicks last night in spectacular fashion, highlighted by two dunks in particular that are simply unbelievable for a player listed at 6’3.” The guy is absolutely unreal, and it will be an outright travesty if he’s somehow robbed of the MVP, though I don’t think he’s left much room for debate with the way that he’s played over the last few weeks of the season.
The first dunk here is the alley-oop that he caught last night, a normal lob that he somehow manages to catch with two-hands, throw down with one-hand and do it all in traffic on top of everything:

And then here’s your run-of-the-mill, double-clutch reverse-dunk (that would have won the dunk contest in 1993 a la Harold Miner) but that D-Rose decided to do on a breakaway last night:

And, finally, because no Derrick Rose v. Knicks video-post is complete without what he did to them in November of this season, here is that dunk again, which, in my opinion, remains the dunk of the year…and that’s with all the Blake Griffin dunks included:

Kind of makes you feel bad for the Knicks though right? Nah, me neither. D-Rose: you’re my hero.*

This shit is awesome if you like that brand of Onion-type humor and/or appreciate how easy it is to make fun of a sport that we Americans don’t understand:

Since my blog is clearly the first place you’d look to find a live stream of the Spectrum demolition, please enjoy/mourn watching the Spectrum crumble…finally:

UPDATE: The embed link isn’t working, so go watch it elsewhere….i.e. here:

My favorite interview so far of the “festivities,” which, by the way, are being broadcast as “The Spectrum’s Final Show?” So far that one is a runaway, won by none other than Dr. Erving:

Broadcaster: “Is watching this sad for you Dr. J?”

Dr. J: “No.  Uh, no.  Really, I’m just cold out here right now.”

I echo your sentiments Julius…

I realize that many people might scoff at the statement I’m about to make and say things like, “Well, how about Citizen Kane” or “But there’s Pulp Fiction,” but I don’t care. This is the greatest video/film/thing where people act of all time:
