Will The Cavs Be Rested Enough To Win Game 5?

Some say the Cav’s loss (and not like the nail-bitters in games 1 & 2) of game 4 in the NBA finals was due to them being just flat-out tired. hqdefaultAccording to  the Cav’s coach David Blatt, “Tonight was the third game in five days, including the trip back from the West Coast, and it seemed to have an impact on us, yes.” And it looks like Warriors power forward Draymond Greene agrees saying that the Cavs were tired, and that was the teams (Warriors) intentions: that’s one thing we’ve been preaching the whole series, that we wanted to wear them down.”

Now Cleveland did use a shorter rotation and the effects caused their top 8 players to play 42 more minutes over the course of the first three games than the Warriors top spread. But Kerr flipped the script Nino Brown style in game 4.New Jack Ciy

What Was Steve Kerr’s Smart Plan?

Seems like Kerr shortened his rotation to try to match the Cavs in game 4 and this resulted in the 103-82 blowout for the Warriors. But how’d he do it? Kerr did 2 things:

  1. Kerr knew that his plan of swapping out Andrew Bogut for Andre Iguodala to go small and spread the floor would make the big boy’s of Cleveland have to work the perimeter more and this would clear the path to the basket.
  2. And he knew if the Warriors were going to capitalize on their rest edge by playing their best players more, knowing they were better rested than Cleveland’s best players, then Game 4 was a great opportunity. What he didn’t know was the great outcome of his decision. I guess hindsight is always 20/20.

A Leveled Playing Field In Game 5?

In Sunday’s  game 5 the playing field should be even for 2 reasons

  1. both teams have an extra day of rest
  2. and since the Warriors played the same short rotation as the Cavs in game 4, they both should be equally tired or equally rested.

What About Lebron’s Injury In Game 4LeBron James, Injured

Should we be concerned about LeBron’s head banging accident that cost him a few stitches? According to the King I think not. He stated when asked how he was feeling, I had a slight headache, which I think every one of you guys would probably have if you ran into a camera.” Well true King James, but none of “us guys” have to play in an NBA final on Sunday. And why didn’t the team docs make him go through the concussion protocol?

So What is LeBron’s Motivation to Win The Championship? I Have Some Theories

  • He would love to beat Steph CurryStep Curry who was voted MVP while LeBron came in 3rd.
  • It would undoubtedly be a great opportunity for his city, the franchise, and the fans
  • And he would love to stick it in Pat Riley’s face who had some not so nice things to say about King James after he left the Heat last season. randmid_1284153161_rileyRiley commented, “No more smiling faces with hidden agendas.” And although Riley refused to say who he was talking about and whether or not he was talking about King James, we all know that he wasn’t talking about, Burnie the Mascot? burnieThis should be a good game 5….Can’t wait.

The Latest News In Entertainment, Music, and Sports- Carmelo Anthony Has A New Deal!

Hello My Loves,

I am feeling so excited about my blog. I attribute the feeling to how I felt as a first time mom. You are always checking on the baby, jumping at every little whimper, and when they are sleeping you always have one eye opened and both ears listening for any little squirm they may make. I am sure that some of the newness will wear off as time ticks on, but I am certain that my love for doing this blog will be as strong as day one. I tend to get my ideas in the middle of the night, so I’ve learned over the years to always keep a notepad and pen on the nightstand for those in the middle of the night ideas. This morning I awakened (my dad worked long and hard with me to get this word right growing up) to a notepad full of topics that I wanted to discuss. The problem is, I have already set the topic for Thursday’s as Tell It Thursday. Hmmm delima?? Well after a few minutes of staring off into space and getting no answers, I have decided to make today be an exception to my rule and write whatever I want to write about and as many articles as I want to write!!! So if you see other posts from me today, you will understand why. Who needs rules anyways right?

I will however keep to my word and start off by writing about some happenings in the Entertainment world (funny how we say this as if there is a whole other world aside from our world..lol). So let’s did in shall we…

Celebrity News

According to Media Take Out, the website announced pictures and confirmed that Kelly Rowland is pregnant with her second child (she is a former member of Destiny’s Child–you know the group that Beyoncé was in). Wow the weirdest thing just happened. When I typed Beyoncé that little accent mark popped up automatically…I wonder if she has an exclusive plug-in code to her name? Anyways this just in from Media Takeout

June 11, 2015: MediaTakeout.com can OFFICIALLY CONFIRM that Kelly Rowland and her husband Tim Witherspoon are expecting their SECOND CHILD. Kelly and Tim told friends this weekend of their new FAMILY ADDITION. And pics of her holding her belly just came out today! So it is no longer a rumor.

Carmelo Anthony isn’t worrying about the next basketball season because at the moment he is busy buying an overseas soccer team. The New York Knicks forward just put his ink to a deal that will make him become an owner of Puerto Rico F.C., an expansion team in the North American Soccer League. His dad is a native of Puerto Rico and his wife Lala Anthony has Hispanic roots so this was I guess a no brainer. According to the New York Times, Anthony says that this new purchase will not stop his first love to play basketball for the Knicks saying, “Right now it’s about putting the right people in place so that when I’m back to my regular job, basketball is my main focus,” Anthony told ESPN. “I’ll have a solid group of people running it on a day-to-day basis.”

It’s Janet…Ms. Jackson That Is: Pop Star Is Releasing New Album and Taking Control

Just when you thought she was done making music, Janet Jackson is BACK!!. After a 7-year hiatus from the music scene, The six-time Grammy winner is gearing up to release a new album this fall according to Vnews.

Even though she made us all “wait awhile”, I am excited that she is getting back in the game at age 49 years young. The album, according to her website, has yet to be titled. But what is clear is that she is doing it her own way.

The album will be released under her own label, “Rhythm Nation Records.” She also plans to launch a world tour and this announcement ignited a buzz in just about every social media platform. Jackson said in a statement that “the opportunity to be creative in music and every form of entertainment has great potential here.”

This move to D.I.Y. from traditional  record labels gives Ms. Jackson “Control” over her music because she retains ownership of all her recordings and full insight of her costs and revenues. “Janet is not just a supreme artist, she is a unique cultural force whose work resonates around the world. It is an honor that she has chosen BMG to release her long-awaited new album. We look forward to collaborating with her across every platform,” said BMG’s CEO Hartwig Masuch. -via Celebrity Access.
