A Random two questions for blog readers...

1: I'm not condoning anything Ron Artest has done, but what are peoples feelings on the sports media? I ask because seeing the sports media paint Ron Artest as the bad guy(some of it deserving), when it was proven that he never "demanded a trade" but was responding to a direct question. The Pacers want to act like little Bo peep here, but it was leaked then that they wanted to trade Artest for Peja when he made the "trade" comment. What are your thoughts??

2. On another note, over the past few months my best friend has made the suggestion that I "hang with his wife" when he isn't there. He called me the other night, while out with some people, and said "HumanityCritic, you should bring a 6 pack over and chill with my wife, she'd like that!!" I don't know how yall feel about it, but I'm never doing that!! I'm the type of dude to come over my boys house, and if he isn't there but his lady is I'm not waiting there with her, I'll just come back later. I'm I right or just paranoid??

I can't comment on Ron Artest and the trade.

However, you are absolutely right about not wanting to hang with your boy's wife. Why would he want you to? That's just crazy! Sounds like they are into some freak sh*t!

1. The whole Artest thing was immature bullshit, of course, and the media jumped all over it, of course, but that's not to say they were putting ideas into anyone's heads that weren't there already. I mean, Peja Stojakovic was already due to be a free agent after the season finished and logic dictates that two and two equal a rumor festering into fact.
2. Your best friend's name isn't Marcellus, is it?

Question #1: don't care.

Question #2: don't do it!!!


lmao @ golfwidow's comment.

HC, for #2 you are doing right the correct thing. I don't even step in my brothers house when he isn't there, it just doesn't look right. If I have friends over the house and I have to leave for work or something I respectfully say "ya'll n***as have to go."

#1 They want to turn Ron Artest into the modern Dennis Rodman. The classic anti-hero everybody wants to scrutinize in the media. With his previous incidents they will always expose any form of delingquent behavior as an epic.

Larry Bird just prooved how much moosh has between his ears for making this silly trade because Peja's game is deteriorating and Artest is a defensive stud.

josie said...

well i will answer the second one cuz i not no frigging clue on the first one.

though his comment may be innocent, it will cause trouble. if anything goes wrong with his relationship he will look toward you. also, he wouldnt want to hear "hc, said this" and "hc, said to not to do this" and "hc said that aint right" he would feel that you are brain-washing his wife.

so let him find a female friend for his wife or a book.

the leagus just needs a scapegoat. someone for white folks to fear, someone stern can use to justify some of his dumb as rules when he's negotiating. AI hasnt been acting up lately, Sheeds been rather polite for sheed so Ron Ron is the flavor of the year

the hanging with your friends wife is just weird. I wouldnt do it. you just cant force friendships on folks in my opinion

What amazes me more than Artest's rap sheet is the fact that he is being considered one of the top players in the league. Analysts are talking about him like you can build a team around him. Larry Bird called him the best player in the league- on both sides of the court.

I think I know what he meant (all-defensive team, good offense)- but- come on. This is a player who has an obvious issues working well in any organization (including the Bulls). He has missed over 100 games in the past season and a half. I would agree that he has some raw talent, but, if anything, Artest’s ranking has gone up – with little achievements to back it up.

I still think the Kings got the better player in the end- simply b/c they needed to change things up a bit to get back into the playoffs. Time will tell if Artest can truly deliver on his promises.

When you respect the misinformation capaigns your parents' tax dollars paid for to destroy the Black Panthers, then you know you are not paranoid. When you don't give a fuck about the Black Panthers, then feel free to consider yourself paranoid.

Also: many people from Islamic/African countries would not consider you paranoid as well.

1. Business is business...fans become way too loyal to the players when they should focus their loyality to the team as a whole.

2. Nah you aren't wrong its a situation that could possibly turn out badly so why put yourself in it. Now of course my opinion might change if your friend was in Iraq or something...but if he's like 2 miles down the street then hells to nah.

Brando said...

I like the way Artest plays, and I had always wished the Bulls hadn't traded him. But he is a head case, and head cases in any sport tend to stay that way. Still a good trade for the Kings, though, as Peja is a one-dimensional player even when he does that one thing well.

As for the buddy's wife thing, I normally would say it's no big deal to be unaccompanied in the same house as long as she a) isn't crazy and b) you can control yourself. I wouldn't automatically leave the home of a friend if he wasn't home and I enjoyed talking to his wife. But I agree the setup in this situation sounds odd -- actually encouraging you to go over when he's not there.

2. I say try it one time and see what happens.

chase said...

gots no clue on the sports question, but on your friend and his wife, it strikes me a little odd that he would suggest that your purchase something that impairs peoples discretion and inhibitions, and share it with his wife, while he's not there.

either he has ulterior motives, or he's buggin....it's a bad situation either way.

spchrist said...

Ron Artest is a ticking time bomb...walk away...better yet...run fast...and far. The media didn't cause him to start one of the biggest brawls in NBA history. He's a boob with an NBA body...if he didn't have an NBA body...he wouldn't be shit.

If you trying to hit it and break up a friend's marriage...then go ahead...otherwise...I wouldn't entertain such an idea

MissHarwood said...

If you're not comfortable with it HC, don't do it.
Always think of yourself first!!!! :D

chase said...

#2: Your friend is wanting some do-my-wife action & is just too shy to say it like it is. Whoah.

Toya said...

yea, you're right...don't hang with her, because that can cause problems later on....

LOL@the above person saying your friend want's some "do-my-wife action"...lawd...maybe he is...lol..ewwww

Brother OMi said...

1. Why do we expect spoiled teenagers who make millions to act right?

2. you know how i feel about that one...

Nabeel said...

naahh .. not a good idea .. i won't hand with his wife .. even if it was my best friend noo .. no hangouts .. well once or twice sure .. if there's a problem and she needs your help sure .. but just hangout .. nahh !
