11 Straight victories and 3 straight 40 point games for Carmelo Anthony and my Knicks. I guess the weather coincides with how hot Melo is…
March is one of the best months ever. Not only is the weather crazy and the styles experimental, but the college basketball madness begins. The tournament has not started, but any devoted NCAA fan knows that right now is the most crucial time in college basketball. It is the final opportunity for teams “on the bubble” to make the NCAA tournament and show why their team is the best in the nation.
2nd Rank Duke vs Unranked Maryland
Last night was just a glimpse of how insane this month can be. Powerhouse, Duke seemed unbeatable with the return of Ryan Kelly, but lost to an un-ranked Maryland team in the ACC conference tournament. Duke, a team poised to receive a number 1 seed, better be happy they lost in this tournament and not the NCAA tournament. MADNESS ISN’T COMING, IT’S ALREADY HERE!!!
If you were at SOBs Wednesday night then you were in for a treat by one of TDE’s finest…Ab-Soul. Ab-Soul absolutely killed the performance by not only bringing out guest appearances, but by also performing classic tracks from both Long-Term and Long-Term 2. Great experience and I encourage everyone to check out any TDE show when given the opportunity.
WE REALLY OUT HERE!!!
New music from G.O.O.D. music’s own Pusha-T.
Wrath of Caine is Pusha’s appetizer to his soon to be released “My Name is My Name.” The mixtape does what a mixtape is supposed to do, generate a little bit of buzz, but NOT contain your best work. This does not ensure a great first album, however, now my expectations will not be too high. You can thank Peter LaFleur for that one. Any ways, download link bellow.
Oh how the mighty have fallen. Last night the Celtics showed who they truly were. A team who can play good basketball for three quarters, but are just too old to close out fourth quarter games.
The Celtics let a 19 point half-time lead slip against the Atlanta Hawks in the final two quarters of last nights game, and in the two over-times that followed could not get the win. This Celtics team that has owned the Atlantic division for the past five years, has deteriorated right before our eyes.
Now lets face it, this Celtics team is still very powerful defensively. Kevin Garnett still heads a top 10 defense in points allowed, which is pretty remarkable granted his age. The weaknesses of the Boston Celtics are their offensive game and their lack of rebounding. They only put up 95 points a game which ranks 21st in the League. They rebound at a rate of 39.5 rebounds per game which ranks this Celtics team at 29th in the respective category.If this team is to shape up, they are really going to need Avery Bradley to stretch the court the way Ray Allen did. The spacing was perfect with Ray Allen, however with out him now, teams can clog the paint, which is where Rondo was most effective in disassembling defenses. If they do not return to this form of play, I can see the Celtics losing their grip on that 8th seed and missing the playoffs for the first time since the 2005-06.
This Wednesday I witnessed the death of what many of my family and friends call home. Maybe not the death…
Being from the Heights myself I feel this show is a poor representation of what the Heights really is. Fighting over men at a night club and celebrating about getting a GED are things that happen in everyday life outside of the Heights. Personally they need to capture the Dominican culture and life that goes on till this very day. The beautiful women who walk up and down 181 in the summertime. The barbershops that are packed every Friday night with guys ready for a crazy weekend. The 5 am stops at Cachapas y Mas for that after the club snack. The kids who play basketball at Dyckman courts everyday in hopes of escaping a poor economic community. The street vendors of food that are fresher than the McDonalds you eat everyday. That is Washington Heights, that is our PAIS. Hopefully the MTV show will begin to reveal these traits to its viewers before its goal gentrifying our homes is successful.
Fashion today has become somewhat less expressive than it used to be. Instead of seeing people with their own individual style, people have tried to emulate a style that maybe a celebrity or an idol of theirs possessed. However, more and more we find the fashion society going away from the expensive designers and style gurus to create their own style. How you ask? THRIFTING.
Thrifting allows society to look through a vast selection of goods, purchase them at an affordable price, and then the best part, tailor them and in essence become a designer themselves. Thrifting also allows you to become a more economical individual and save tons of money. the WIN WIN situation that everyone is slowly starting to realize.
Stay Hungry and Humble Guys
As the year comes to a close, we reflect and give thanks for everything this year has taught us. May 2013 bring everyone happiness, peace, and prosperity.
Stay Hungry and Stay Humble
So for the second time a prediction of the end of times has fallen short of what many expected as an instantaneous, fiery death. Instead we are lucky enough to live another day in a world filled with poverty, hunger, and greed. Oh goody -_-…
Avoided this bad boy!!
On another note, the nonsense of killings over sneakers has to stop. In Gwinnett County, another child was killed over a pair of sneakers, this one happened to be the Jordan XI Bread colorway that just dropped.

Sneakers are sneakers, they can be replaced, or in sneaker terms “retroed.” You cannot retro a life.
Until the next time, have a Happy Holliday! Stay Classy New York.
