What's up bloggers??
I'm back with blog entry #7. Since the departure of head coach Al Westover, Eric Devendorf and big Luke Nevill, we've played 4 games and won 3 of those. Our energy and defensive intensity has picked up tremendously. Big fellas Cam Tragardh, Wade Helliwell and Matty Burston have all come alive, our young gunners Benny and Waxy have played more and shown potential to being the future of this league. But basically, we've played every game as our lives depended on it, and it does. With 6 games left on our schedule we want to win them all, in fact we have to win them all. Bottom line is, "We wanna make it to the finals". It's not going to be easy, but we still have a slim chance. And the way our season has gone, that's all we can ask for.
Recently there's been an article on www.backpagelead.com.au that's come out about me wanting to become an Aussie citizen. There's a lot of import players that have come to play Down Under and have never left. Now I've been all over the world and back, I am on my 2nd passport due to all the travel arrival stamps in my 1st one. But this country has been good to me as well as the NBL league as a whole. There's good people, little violence, good basketball and a great atmosphere. So why not become an Aussie local, and finish my career right here?
Who can fault me for that?
As I sit here listening to some good music, I have to talk about this dope ass album that I listen to twice a day! Mr Yeezy, aka Controversial Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy". This album is a classic. this is a complete album, it covers every genre and every style of music we as people listen to. Bottom line…..if you don't have Kanye's album your a damn fool. LOL! Yes, it is that good!
I've also gone back to Jay-Z's 'American Gangster' as well as the Notorious B.I.G, 'Life After Death' and Dead Prez 'Lets Get Free'! Now thats some Straight Black Empowerment Music. They are well respected in the urban hip-hop communities worldwide. They will be in melbourne this March LIVE at Hotel Esplande and 187 will be in the building for that.
This Wednesday, I will be in the Sydney studios on the NBL show OVERTIME! Please don't miss this episode, you wanted it and now you have it!
Stay tuned, thanks for reading my blog and I truly appreciate the support you've all been giving the Melbourne Tigers.
