The TRUTH about Sports

RECOGNIZE Chris Paul

Chris PaulI believe in Chris Paul.  Apparently, Rajon Rondo doesn’t. After the Celtics beat the Hornets by 10 in Boston on Sunday, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo felt he needed to let Paul know what up. Words were exchanged but nothing ensued.  Let me just say this: Rajon Rondo can’t hold Chris Paul’s jockstrap (if that make sense).  What I’m trying to say is Rondo wishes he can become as good as Paul.  I turned into a huge Rondo believer after he tore it up in the playoffs last year.  But disrespect is not cool.  Rondo needs to realize the truth.  He has 3 hall of famers on his team in Garnett, Pierce and Allen.  Not only that, but throw in a Rasheed Wallace and they’ve already become the favorite to win the East.  Unfortunatley Paul’s supporting cast isn’t as good, Emeka and David West? Paul is averaging 26 pts and 7 assists, Rondo 6.5 and 12.  In 5 years, Paul is averaging 20 points, 10 assists, 5 rebounds and 2/5 assists.  Rondo on the other hand, in 4 years, 10 points, 6 assists, under 2 steals and 4.4 rebounds.  I know Rondo is on his way to bigger and better things.  Hell, he just signed a 5 year $55 million extension with the Celtics. Although, he needs to show respect to the players that have earned theirs, and Chris Paul is that.  Heck, I don’t even think Rondo has a nickname yet.  CP3 or Chef Paul (I like the latter), might be the coolest in the league.  Back off Rondo, you don’t want to wake up a sleeping little giant. That’s the best point guard in the league…

Clock Strikes Twelve for USC Trojans

USC TrojansKeep moving moves, nothing to see here. Nothing special about this team other than an inexperienced TRUE freshman quarterback, an overrated defense, and throw in a lovable players coach.  I’m not dogging on USC’s history, but I’m gonna hammer the present.  The Trojans got their asses kicked by the Oregon Ducks.  The same Ducks that lost their starting running back to suspension after the first game.  What the hell is going on here?  Many people said that the Trojans weren’t prepared, they didn’t come to play.  The truth of the matter is that this team isn’t the team they used to be.  Matt Barkley hasn’t arrived yet.  He hasn’t had a jaw dropping game this season. He missed receiver after receiver.  The defense has allowed at leat 27 points in each of the last 3 games.  Frankly, the playmakers aren’t there YET, on both offense and defense.  Sure they have a bunch of blue-chip talent on the field but these guys aren’t gelling.  Watching the Ducks yesterday, they moved the ball anywhere they wanted.  It’s gonna be at least another year before Barkley plays 1/2 as good as people have been hyping him up.  As for the rest of the Trojans, sad. Wasted loss in the beginning of the year at Washington.  I knew this was gonna be a tough game for SC.  They’ve had problems winning in Oregon, whether it be the Ducks or the Beavers, for the past 3 years. Anyhow, looks like the “whogiveacrap” bowl for the USC Trojans this year, whoopdittedoo!
