One of the last times a wrestling arena shook

One of the last times a wrestling arena shook

If WWE wants a product that the general population doesn’t shut off within five minutes, here’s what they need to start embracing:

Unpredictability.

Debuts.

Returns.

Re-packaging.

Good creative.

Storylines and feuds that make you wanna see more (creates suspense, fear, intrigue)

Signature quirks in the ring (taunts, interesting moves, sitting up out of nowhere, Ambrose’s recovery, Cesaro’s big swing)

Matches with something on the line (a belt, a significant item on a pole [it works])

Technical wrestling skills and microphone skills (can only go so far without a story)

A signature chant

A creative entrance

Valets

Managers

Stables

Put the best technical wrestler in the world against the most creative and captivating performer in the world, and the majority of people will want to watch the latter. Putting this guy against this guy isn’t going to revive the form of entertainment we all love. It’s way deeper than that and it doesn’t require disobeying the PG rating. The argument that it’s PG and they can’t be entertaining is the biggest cop-out argument, so if you’re saying it, stop. And if you’re suggesting that something that I have not listed will work, you can likely also re-evaluate. This is 17 years of studying psychology of a wrestling fan-base more than it has being a fan of the characters.

Indies… WWE.. You could present whatever amazing in-ring match you want.  Whether it’s on WWE, NXT, New Japan, Lucha Underground, Dragon Gate, Evolve, CZW, or something else.  If there’s no story, it’s only going to be a match.

Rock and Jock Wrestling

Rock and Jock Wrestling

 

When Hogan body-slammed Andre, it was an uncontested feat of strength.

When Jake the Snake goaded Ultimate Warrior into a room of snakes where the Undertaker stood, it was a meeting of three of the most over WWF gimmicks that ever occurred.

When Shawn Michaels unexpectedly whacked Marty Jannetty in a segment, you felt the heat.

When Shawn and Hunter got together, and rebelled against those in power; Commisioner Slaughter, the stooges, and Vince.. we all knew.. this wasn’t just an angle.. It was something bigger.  The successful platform of wrestling that we have abandoned.

I’m not gonna go further until this is re-tweeted at least once.. I got a lot to say.

Check this out. Get a picture of the NFL at the moment.

Follow me on Twitter! I HAVE NBA LEAGUE PASS! @EminemAndMnMs

It’s 7:05.

What I’m looking for:

1. How do we defend Rudy Gay.

2. How do we defend Jonas Valanciunas.

3. What line-ups we’re going with more of.

4. Who will be defending Kyle Lowry.

5. How their guards will operate in general and if we can handle it.

That’s all I could think of looking for at the moment. 

If anyone thinks of anything I should keep note of, tweet me at @EminemAndMnMs or leave it in the comments!

The game mattered when we had to gain the lead back. The rest was a necessary Woodson chemistry experiment, and that’s why I found it so relevant to make this chart.

I took positional assignments into note. Each assignment taken into account to slot each player from PG-C, aka, 1-5. The Celtics don’t have too much versatility, so the match-ups Woody chose were purely his own un-compromised strategies, with the exception of when Tyson was a little ginger after banging knees with a guy and turning the ball over. But it wasn’t like there was a tall point guard or really quick power forward to account for. Rondo didn’t play, so nobody had to guard him. Rookie Phil Pressey played a lot of point guard, Avery Bradley was at SG, Crawford and Lee were mixed in, Marshon Brooks played SG and SF, Green at SF, Bass at PF, Olynyk played a bit, Humphries didn’t look horrible at C, and Sullinger did work at PF. There wasn’t really too much confusion about where each Celtic was going to be playing and there weren’t many mis-matches, which is important.

There were times where point guards that stayed on the floor during subs switched to shooting guard, as well as times where power forwards switched to center. Shooting guards to small forward, small forward to power forward, everyone moved around. I think 6 guys played multiple positions. This is usual, but obviously not as many times in a game as the Knicks have to do it. I honestly don’t have a problem with it. I didn’t even have a problem with Prigioni at shooting guard, because basically, they’re running two point guard sets, and if they want to play traditional, I have no problem with Prigioni spotting up for three and setting screens outside the elbow or around the arc. The only guy who played out of position all game in my opinion was when Bargnani saw 1:30 at center. It was a pretty terrible 1:30 for the Knicks. Carmelo got burned by Gerald Wallace in this shift and Felton was doing his best ‘JR Smith after the nightclub’ impression.

The most glaring thing about the game was the subs of the subs giving up that lead during the last six minutes. Props to Mike Woodson for keeping them in the game and putting the onus on them. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. It helped me look at the depth of the team.

Individual Player Evaluations:

PG: Udrih: He had an okay game. His drive and dish was kind of Marbury-esque on a few plays. He played excited. He took eight shots. He shot 25% but he provided a few nice passes and set a lot of screens. His best attribute of his game was help defense. He guarded his man when it was necessary and helped bigs when he could.

PG: C. Smith: I don’t know where they found this guy. It looked like the first time he ever touched a basketball.

PG/SG: Prigioni: Prigs looked great, saw passing lanes, played with passion, pesky as usual, had pep in his step, took smart shots. He made a beautiful around the back pass to Bargnani but Bargnani didn’t finish the leaner. If he did, it could have been pass of the game or something.

PG/SG: Felton: Drove to the bucket, may have been a little slow at times, but he had his moments and put up 11-3-5 in 22 minutes.

‘PG’/SG/SF: Shumpert: I put PG in quotes because he was basically taking the ball from Prigioni. It doesn’t matter. He deserved the ball. Shumpert shot 7-7. He looked explosive. He was pesky. He was deflecting passes. He was getting open. He did nothing dumb. He, Tim Jr., and Ron, each had GREAT games. Irony or not irony, those are my three favorite Knicks.

SG: Hardaway Jr.: My dad. Took him one game to prove his worth. That stroke was the most beautiful in the game. His speed was awesome. Fastest guy on the team. There were a few times where he got caught up on defense, but so did all of the new guys, aside from Artest, since he’s Based God.

SF: Leslie: I liked his little floater. His game is good and he gets close shots. He’s a little bit green, but he deserves one of the remaining spots. We need an athletic and composed guy like him with upside, who probably defends better than Carmelo. But that’s yet to be seen. Regardless, I like Leslie a lot.

SF/PF: Anthony: The star. The captain. The captain showed his stroke, but that wasn’t his only bright spot. He was the facilitator on one specific play that was probably designed. On this play, Tyson screened Felton’s man at the top of the arc while Carmelo was 23 feet out on the right side with the ball and he fed it to Felton as he rumbled around Tyson’s right knee for a lay-up. There was a few instances where Carmelo and Bargnani were playing inside-outside, which I think could be a big part of the offense this year.

SF/PF: Artest: Metta Ron World Artest Peace didn’t start. Kinda looking like he’s going to be the 6th man and come in whenever Bargnani or Carmelo pulls their revolving door routine. He’s our only defensive big, pending Kenyon Martin’s participation and Tyson’s health. He’s versatile, and he DOES have an offensive game. He was draining threes and was an anchor defensively. One play, he took the ball up, passed to nobody, and drained a 3. He saw 6 shifts with Shumpert. It is important to note that Shumpert was on the floor for every single Artest shift. Shump and Artest saw a shift at SG and PF together for 3 min, 13 minutes of SF and PF, and 6 minutes of SG Shump and SF Ron. If you can read that, now you have an idea of how Ron and Shump played together. And you should. Because it’s beautiful.

PF/’C': Bargnani: Played center for a few moments, so I quoted it. If he’s our center, we’re in trouble. We will be last in the league in rebounds. He did make a few nice passes. He had an okay day shooting. He shot 6-6 from the line and 3-8 from the field. His little pump-fake at the 3 and then drive to chuck up a shot got guys off their feet quite often. I can’t leave out the fact that Vito Faverani dunked on him and burned him to the rim a couple times. He mostly saw the floor stretching between Carmelo and Chandler. He also dunked once?

PF/C: Powell: The dude can athletically block shots. He doesn’t look like he can, but he can. I trust him guarding a backup center.

C: Chandler: I can’t stand this man but he set a few nice screens and made a few off-ball screens. Correct me if I’m mistaken, but I think he made an 18 foot jumper? Couple things in this game made me confused. He even grabbed a rebound with two hands and made a put-back over three people.

C: Aldrich: Shaky, but has potential. He contested the shot well.

C: Diogu: Ike Diogu literally my favorite play, and the made the best big man play of the game for the Knicks and I hope he gets credit for it. He got the ball on a post-up, shimmied right, pivoted left and went under and up for a lay-up. It was really awesome and I haven’t seen a Knick do that since David Lee. It was great and deserves a roster spot just for it. He may be slow, but he can move his feet inside.

Chemistry notes:

Prigioni played with Felton for 5 of his 6 shifts, 16 of 18 minutes.

Udrih was point guard for 6 of Hardaway‘s 8 shifts. 18 of 20 minutes, (really 18 of 25 minutes, but 5 of those were garbage time where Smith was in, so really it was 18 of 20)

Bargnani played with Anthony for 4 of his 5 shifts, 16 of his 19 minutes.

Chandler was on the floor with Anthony and Felton for 17 of his 20 minutes.

Bargnani was only on the floor when Felton was on the floor. 19 minutes.

Artest was only on the floor when Shumpert was on the floor. 22 minutes.

Shumpert was only small forward when Hardaway was on the floor as well.

Bargnani dunked and Chandler hit the jumper in the same shift that started at 7:24 in the 3rd. Ironically, the weirdest shift began a snowball effect. Shump stayed in and everyone around him changed. That’s when Tim Hardaway Jr. took over and showed us what he can do.

Awards:

Best passers: Prigioni, Carmelo, Felton

Best rebounders: Artest, Tyson

Best shooters: Shumpert, Hardaway, Artest, Chandler

Best defenders: Prigioni, Shumpert, Artest, Powell

MVP’s: Shumpert for the game, Hardaway for the biggest shot, and Prigioni defensively. Artest gets honorable mention.

Favorite shift of the game: Prigioni, Shumpert, Hardaway, Anthony, Powell. Felton, Shumpert, Artest, Bargnani and Chandler was also great. I like seeing Shump and Ron together, Bargnani stretch, and Chandler inside. Replace Felton with Prigioni and I think beautiful things can happen with those five.

Okay, I’ve written enough. Follow me on Twitter, http://www.twitter.com/EminemAndMnms.

I’m gonna do this again. I had fun with it. Celtics, you got TAPED!

What we have all been waiting for. We have all been looking forward to our New York Knicks play their first official game of the 2013-14 season. Well, guess what? ITS NOT HERE YET! :)

What we do have, is pre-season basketball. And you WILL get a better taste of what’s to come than you did watching summer league.

Summer league was a little lackluster. Didn’t fill my basketball void. We didn’t see much of Shumpert, very little of Tim Hardaway, Jr., and no Bargnani or Artest. (Yes, Artest.) We also didn’t see the underrated center we pried away from Oklahoma City, Cole Aldrich. Aldrich will be standing in for Amare whenever he’s ruled out. -_-

Generally speaking, the Knicks fanbase says they have a playoff contender with a lot of new pieces and a lot to work on. With Amare’s brittle knees, JR’s knee and postseason/off-season antics, Shumpert’s tender shoulder, Kenyon possibly aging, Andrea being statistically the worst rebounder over 7′ of all-time on a team that needs rebounding, and Ron not caring what you call him anymore (I call him Ron,) there are many, many questions to be answered.

The versatility of the Knicks line-up is a plus. Each player has a defined skill set, of which I hope Woodson is well aware of.

Tonight, at 7:30, the Knicks take the Celtics in Rhode Island. The starting lineups have been announced. Here they are:

PG Pablo Prigioni (our best facilitator)

PG Raymond Felton (a guard who can score)

SF Carmelo Anthony (the star player guy, el Capitan)

PF Andrea Bargnani (I’m scared)

C Tyson Chandler (Prepare for tip-out boards and bites of Kelly Olynyk’s pump-fake)

The Knicks chemistry is my strongest concern. I believe our chemistry is all over the place. I believe everyone on the team will know at least two positions by the end of the year, aside from Prigioni, our facilitator, and Tyson, our tip-out the rebound guy.

I will be writing a follow-up piece tonight, at the end of the game, after South Park, documenting what I gather of the Knicks’ chemistry. As I watch tonight’s game, I will be documenting this rotation that Woody is putting out, and how our style of play changes. I expect the rotation to be a revolving door, so I’ll be busy.

Look out for my post-game piece. I promise educational value and introspect. I’m a decent hype guy, but analyst is my first love. To make up for my shortcomings, here’s a rhyme for each Knick I expect to play tonight:

Ray Felton, compared to Prigs he plays selfish, and I hope he dunks on Rondo for the hell of it
Pablo Prigioni, pumped his fist when the ball was dished to homie, went to the bench and swallowed rigatoni
Carmelo Anthony, out there saying its hard to look after me, got Cheerios but wants Charms, marshmallow fantasies
Andrea Bargnani, knew Mussolini but never was commie, scared of some D, like a girl who never saw her mommy
Tyson Chandler, rebounds the rock but can’t handle her, effort is hilarious, Adam Sandler
Cole Aldrich, gonna dunk on the JET, like he’s the cold hard bitch, then someone’s gonna be his girl, rhyme i like best? so far, this
Metta World Peace is his federal beast but when he’s the best he’s just Ron Artest
Iman Shumpert, when the girl acts up he says fine and dumps her, macks two minutes later, grinds and humps her (lol)
Beno Udrih? ooh kid.. he’s gonna get in the game and show us he do this, making passes, making Celtics foolish
Tim Hardaway Jr, my twitter namesake, he’ll make defenders fall simply from a feigned break

(Kenyon and JR won’t play)

My favorite line-up is Prigioni, Hardaway Jr, Shumpert, Carmelo, and Aldrich. But I’m weird. Let’s see if that happens. Re-tweet this story and the next story out and I’ll owe you a dollar. :)

In 5th-6th grade, my friends, (at the time) started a band called Anything Definite and introduced the drive to create music and play shows into the minds of my middle school. When this happened, my musical taste started to take form. My first show I ever attended locally was at The Backdoor in Nyack, which is now the Nyack Village Theater. I remember two other bands from the show; Delirious and Three Monkeys named Bob. My next show was at the venue on Broadway which became the new Backdoor. This venue featured the Daly’s Gone Wrong, which became the first band I could ever deal with who utilized screaming. After I heard Southcott at Indigo Paradise, I learned that there was room for me, if I wanted to, to create the sound I wanted to, and people would come out for it. I picked up a guitar and started playing Blink 182 and Sum 41 songs. I wanted to get more involved with the scene, and I asked a friend of a cousin one day, who is the talk of the town right now. He told me it was a band named Shabutie, and they just got signed. A dream began.

I’m 23 now, and a little bit rusty, but my mind for creating music is still sharp. Through my musical travels, (playing in a band and attending shows) I have met numerous talented musicians, who scatter amongst themselves for a variety of reasons. If we maintain a collaborative attitude, and come together as a group of talented musicians who want to make palatable songs, the scene can be saved. Here are some names of musicians that I have met, that with the right band members, can come together a complete package and create an excellent sound with their talent and passion.

This could be the best basketball post on the internet when its done.

1. Cavaliers’ Draft Party Reaction at Quicken Loans Arena to the 1st Pick, Anthony Bennett

2. Orlando Magic Draft Party Reaction to 2nd Pick, Victor Oladipo at DisneyWorld

3. Skip Bayless’ Reaction to 3rd Pick, Otto Porter

Totally disagree, by the way. Everyone saw the pick coming with good reason.

4. Charlotte Bobcats Draft Party Reaction to 4th Pick, Cody Zeller, in the lobby of Time Warner Cable Arena. This was the inspiration behind this post. This video went viral.

5. A Phoenix Suns’ fan’s reaction to 5th Pick, Alex Len, at his house.  Hate to say it, because he sounds like an idiot, but I share his sentiments.

6. A Pelicans’ fan reaction to 6th Pick to Nerlens Noel, who, thankfully for him, got traded away. Stern comes to the stage at 2:40.

And here’s a tweet from Marc Stein about how Jrue felt about getting traded, since there was no LIVE reaction to the trade, which I put a lot of blame on the producer for

7.  I really hate when they try to make every video dramatic with this song, but that’s what the Kings did.  Here’s Sleep Train Arena’s reaction to getting Ben McLemore at #7

And here’s a video of the Kings’ draft room reacting to Nerlens coming off at 6 so that they can get McLemore.

8.  Since there’s no video of a live KCP reaction, and there should be, because they somehow didn’t take hometown superstar Trey Burke, here’s a question posed to owner of the Pistons, Tom Gores, about not taking Burke.

Q: About draft night, tell me your reaction to seeing the fans boo the selection of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and was there any desire to weigh in to have the team select (Michigan point guard) Trey Burke?

A: I was actually in the draft room, but I did hear about it and I understand. I think Trey is a great player and he did so much for the University of Michigan. I totally understand, but we took the philosophy of being in this draft what we needed as a team and we did take a bit of a win-now attitude. Our philosophy going in was we really wanted to have someone kind of slip right in to the team and help us win now. We felt that Kentavious could help us do that. Having said that, obviously Trey Burke is a great player. He’s going to do great. It wouldn’t be good for either one of us to just make the move for popularity just to get a good hooray from the fans.

Horrible.

9.  K. Pump up the volume for this one.  It’s hard to hear Broussard. And go to 1:26. This is the Jazz draft party at EnergySolutions Arena, reacting to the trade for Trey Burke.

10.  One of the more insightful reactions, since I found no fan reaction, here’s Greg Anthony on CJ McCollum, the Blazers 10th pick.

11. Here’s 6 Twitter reactions to the drafting of Michael Carter-Williams at 11.
http://fansided.com/2013/06/27/nba-draft-2013-philadelphia-76ers-fan-reaction-to-no-11-pick/

12.  Here’s how to pronounce New Zealander and new Thunderer Steven Adams (don’t waste your time)

13.  Celtics GM Danny Ainge talking about the 13th pick that the Mavericks made and they traded for, Kelly Olynyk

14. This is pretty cool.  Here’s Shabazz Muhammad on a conference call after he got traded to the Wolves talking about if he’s talked to Kevin Love, who also went to UCLA and will play on the Wolves this year with Shabazz.

15.  Some guy named Jeremy Schmidt’s in-depth reaction to the Bucks’ drafting of…. Giannis Antetokounmpo
http://www.bucksketball.com/2013/06/giannis-antetokounmpo-is-everything-weve-asked-the-milwaukee-bucks-for/

16.  This pick, Lucas Nogueira, was drafted by the Celtics and went to the Hawks.  Here’s the highlight of his draft day.

17.  If you speak German, this video is great.  Atlanta takes Dennis Schroeder at 17.  With the funny thing on the o.  (Yeah I know, it’s an umlaut. Leave me alone)

And this is for some analysis in English:

18.  The Mavericks traded down for the rights to Shane Larkin, who the Hawks drafted for them.  Rick Carlisle talks about it (mildly boring).. so eff that.. I’m not even posting it.. check the kid’s vert:

19.  Here’s some goob talking to the 19th pick, Sergey Karasev, as he tries to speak English

20.  Nobody really has a heavy reaction to Tony Snell getting drafted, but he’s good, see, look:

21.  Here’s Jazz tradee, Timberwolf Gorgui Dieng, telling you the meaning of life.

24.  I’ll end it on this, because I know it’s good.  I haven’t even researched this video-wise because  I personally have a live reaction to this pick on Vine.  Here’s my live reaction to the Knicks taking Tim Hardaway, Jr.

@EminemAndMnMs Tim Hardaway Jr. Reaction.

Spike reacting to the pick

Spike reacting to the pick

I posted this on Facebook, and I re-read it multiple times, and I felt it was so strong that I want to post it on my blog.  It’s not exactly basketball related, but I can make it basketball related if you want. Basketball shoes make sounds when they squeak on the floor and so does dribbling and these sound effects are in songs.  Basketball is the most musical sport there is, in itself.  Now this.

Attention, people with recording studios: I have at least six complete, catchy, not screamo, intelligible, standard and D-tuned, unreleased songs written. I would like to meet with you and talk about these songs. Such as a movie distributor would talk to a writer about his script. I have yet to find someone with a studio who simply would do this. It seems like all you want to do is record and get paid. You’re depriving yourselves of content and undermining everyone around you.With a little common sense, more goods (songs) can be produced.

With cheaper recording prices, more people can make songs, and that gives you more content to work with, if you’re smart enough to collect iTunes royalties from them once you get them up there, (which is fairly easy to do after mastering). In turn, this increased quantity of content creates a better chance of getting a song created that is catchy enough to generate additional profit through shows as well as on-the-street EP sales.

You, myself and the rest of the world should know what these songs sound like complete and mastered. Our community is better when the people in it have created content for the rest of it to enjoy. You guys who really know how to record music need to start being the facilitators and taking on creative minds. Always have an open door that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to go through. Help shit exist. Facilitate.
