[SPORTS] LAKERS TRADE RUMOR: GASOL/BYNUM FOR HOWARD?

In the midst of this NBA All-Star weekend, a trade rumor broke out (Peter Vecey) stating that the Orlando Magic turned down the Lakers offer of Bynum for Howard straight up, but are willing to restructure the deal in order to trade their superstar center. What type of restructuring you are asking? Well, the Magic has made it no secret that the only way they would trade D12 to the Lakers is if they (Lakers) would be willing to part with both of their All-Star big men, so that includes Pau Gasol, according to John Cherwa (LA Times).

Let me just say this, NOOOOO. I really hope the Lakers will not do this deal. Right now they have all the leverage. The Magic will not find another team that can even come close to value as for as players go, if they trade him elsewhere. The New Jersey Nets only big man, Brooke Lopez, even with an injured Bynum is nowhere near his talent level. Honestly Bynum and Howard balance out for me simply because Bynum is better offensively, and Howard is better defensively.




People continue to talk about an injury prone Bynum, yet he does not describe what the true meaning of injury prone is to me, that title goes to a player such as Greg Oden. Not to disrespect Oden, but the injuries that Drew has obtained throughout his career were legit, like coming down on a players foot, or Kobe literally running into his knee head first. And at 7'1, 280, yeah that's a recipe for disaster. Drew is playing his first injury free season, and his production is way up. People also forget he is averaging 16pts/13rbs with a superstar on his team. Meaning he doesn't get the ball that often. So, I just hope the Lakers are not desperate and really look at the big picture.

UPDATE: The Magic will throw in Jameer Nelson and Hedo Turkaglou as well. So the Magic would get Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, and the Lakers would receive, Dwight Howard, Hedo, and Jameer. Heck it looks like they should have just traded Kobe to Orlando...smh. Didn't our team defeat that team in the championship..oh but our bench was much stronger then..lol.

Ah I'm up in the air on this one. I know the Lakers have to look to the post Kobe era, just not sure this will elevate us to the top? What you guys think?

NEW MUSIC: DAWN RICHARD BLACK LIPSTICK


Dawn Richard protects herself from the evils of the music business on “Black Lipstick,” her edgy new record.
“‘Black Lipstick’ is the story of how I found out I needed armor,” explains the former Dirty Money diva, who recently parted ways with Bad Boy. “It’s the trap. The music industry is described as a mysterious woman. The seduction and the betrayal of her. I saw in color but as soon as my eyes set on her, all that was seen was black and white. That is when I knew I needed to put my armor on.”
The Druski-produced track is one of seven that will appear on Dawn’s digital EP Armor On, available March 27.

There baaaaack!! Chris Brown teams up with his Ex boo, Rihanna for the remix of his new single, Turn Up The Music.

Chris Brown ft Rihanna - Turn Up The Music Remix - HipHopEarly t11519.mp3
Ah and she returns the favor. The Pop princess added Chris to her remix for her latest single Birthday Cake.

People will realize that they are going to have to allow Chris Brown and Rihanna to make the DECISION on their own, about whether or not they can be friends. And for anyone saying they don't know how she can forgive him, the better question is who is she NOT to forgive? We all have our issues, and thank God, that HE sent Jesus that we can be forgiven. I have to say, I like the remix to Chris's joint a lil bit better.

TYGA'S NEW ALBUM: CARELESS WORLD, PULLED OFF THE SHELVES?

Wow, Tyga's new album, Careless World, may NOT be set to be released 2/21 like the Young Money artist has been anticipating. The deluxe edition of the album, has 21 tracks which features Pharell, Nicki Minaj, Marsha Ambrosius and more. The cause of the album delay this time, is the use of an "unauthorized" Martin Luther King speech. So stores such as Best Buy and Itunes are pulling the album. Well Tyga took to his twitter to say that the album WILL indeed come out on the 21st, so check on Tuesday to see.


Check out one of my favorite tracks on the album, Light Dreams featuring Marsha Ambrosius.

BOBBY BROWN EXPLAINS WHY HE LEFT WHITNEY'S FUNERAL

Bobby Brown has had probably one of the worst months of his life. And we know that his life has been far from easy up to this point. The famed r/b singer, arrived at his ex-wife's funeral with his kids, and soon after was seen leaving the service. Now all types of rumors surfaced on twitter, and other social network outlets, but Bobby released a statement letting people know his side of the story. But before I get to that, the only thing I want to say is, at a time like this, the most important person that needed someone was Bobbi Kristina, so there should, (in my opinion), have been no reason worthy of him leaving this service. None of us know the intimate details of Bobby's relationship with Whitney's family, but when it's all said and done, he is Bobbi-Kristina's father, and unless she did not want him there, he should have just stuck it out. There are times to fight a battle, and there are times to just humble yourself, and even bite your tongue, pride to the side, (I don't care if they asked you to move to the overflow) long as you could let your child know that you are there. Okay, that's my soapbox rant, but here is Bobby's explanation of what happened.
My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move. Security then prevented me from attempting to see my daughter Bobbi-Kristina. In light of the events, I gave a kiss to the casket of my ex-wife and departed as I refused to create a scene. My children are completely distraught over the events. This was a day to honor Whitney. I doubt Whitney would have wanted this to occur. I will continue to pay my respects to my ex-wife the best way I know how.”

[VIDEO] FANTASIA SPEAKS ON DEATH OF WHITNEY HOUSTON


I’m still in shock over the passing of Whitney Houston. But like when ppl pass away, it usually brings reflection to those who have been affected in some way. As I look over my life, I think about what’s important, and remind myself that all that other stuff, is not worth being a part of my remembered legacy. No matter how many people know your name, you will leave some type of ”legacy” behind, let it be one of kindness, greatness (because you became who God created you to be), one of no regrets, forgiveness daily, LOVE shown at every level, being just in all things. Dealing with every decision that you have made in a mature manner, blaming no one but yourself. Also be quick to ask for forgiveness as well. And pray for one another daily! You don’t have to know someone personally to just pray for them. The Holy Spirit will give you the words to say. Now as much as we all enjoy the gifts that God gives us, in people like Whitney, MJ, and others, we must know that they need prayer just like anyone else. Why? Because the industry they are in, is designed to destroy them SPIRITUALLY. And we all know that it’s the spirit that the enemy is after. Isn’t it funny that our GREATEST musicians have bouts with things that are designed to kill them first mentally, then spiritually, then physically? See, we all know that greatness comes with and adversary. The enemy (Satan) already knows his fate, and he wants to take as many people with him. Remember misery loves company. Don't ever underestimate your adversary, heck he got Adam & Eve to give him the keys to the kingdom, but we have a Savior, and His name is Jesus, and He has delivered us from the hands of the enemy. Don't be deceived, because you see these people living a lifestyle that most only dream of, or the fact that the whole world knows there name, there are held accountable even more so, for what type of influence they are presenting. The enemy of their souls know that. See if you love Nicki Minaj, you would be praying for her constantly (her grammy performance alone should have you praying), Lady Gaga, Jay Z, or whomever your favorite is. Because when they are gone, that's it. Screaming over their dead body, how much you love them, can't save their soul. Stop acting like the things we see are okay, or just acting, or performing, everything expressed on the outside is an expression of what's going on in the inside. Don't ever get that twisted, it's the one thing the devil want's you to overlook. Ah that former minister of music (Lucifer) has a lot to do with that. Be slow to judge and quick to pray!

APPLE SET TO RELEASE MOUNTAIN LION

Apple has today announced the successor to its popular Mac OS Lion operating system, unveiling Mountain Lion, the ninth major release of its desktop platform which will bring more of its iOS features to the desktop.

Gone are traditional messaging apps like iChat, in comes Messages, Notes, Reminders and even Game Center for Mac, mimicking the iOS features on your iPhone and iPad, also delivering Notification Center, Share Sheets, Twitter integration and AirPlay.

If you wanted iOS on the desktop, you’re about to get it.

Apple has released the operating system as a developer preview, building iCloud support directly into the OS, making it easy to use and easy to operate with the integration of apps. As Apple works to fine-tune the platform, Mac users will be able to upgrade to Mountain Lion via the Mac App Store in ‘late summer 2012′.

“The Mac is on a roll, growing faster than the PC for 23 straight quarters, and with Mountain Lion things get even better,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “The developer preview of Mountain Lion comes just seven months after the incredibly successful release of Lion and sets a rapid pace of development for the world’s most advanced personal computer operating system.”

Below is an overview of Mountain Lion. We have referenced the great article by Jim Dalrymple & Peter Cohen over at The Loop to do so. Again, a big thanks to Jim once again for his assistance.

iCloud


Given the fact that iCloud now has 100 million users, Mountain Lion is built to maximise the service and has support built into its core.

By registering iCloud in Mountain Lion, the service will then set up a number of apps and services on your system, integrating tightly with Mail, Contacts, Messages, FaceTime and a whole number of other services. So, if you have a lot of information already set up, the service will make it all available for you.

Apple will push Documents in the Cloud with Mountain Lion, perhaps serving as a Google Docs and Microsoft Office 365 rival.

Given it’s just a beta build at the moment, new features are set to be introduced until its release in ‘late Summer’.

Well this one does not disappoint. Never have a seen a video filled with so much believability, truth (lyrics of the song) being played out, and most importantly chemistry between celebs. Well there may have been a few others, but this says it all.
