Motor Mouth NeNe To Leave “Real Housewives Of Atlanta”

ARTICLE FROM s2smagazine.com (Full story click here)

Found out some news you reality TV viewers might want to know. And that is motor mouth NeNe Leakes might be leaving “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” because she is upset.

Why is she upset? Well she is upset she is a hater and is jealous. She is jealous because Kim also of “RHOA” is getting a spinoff program and she is not.

NeNe thinks she is the star of “RHOA” for some reason. The question is why does she think she is the star of the program? In my opinion NeNe has the biggest mouth on the show! Real talk.

Readers I am TIRED of seeing these mouth mouth African American ladies on reality TV. “RHOA”, “Basketball Wife’s”, “Single Ladie’s”, “Love And Hip-Hop” and more are full of loud mouth, foul mouth black women who have to cuss every other word.

So millions of white folks think that is the way most African American females really are. I don’t understand why the African American community is not speaking out more about these reality shows that make black ladies look terrible.

I am pissed off about black ladies actions on these reality shows. I want to shout out singer Toni Braxton who is a former guest on Seattle’s “Music Inner City TV”. While her sister’s run their mouths on “Braxton Family Values” she takes the high road and stays acting like a lady. Much love Toni!!   Gordon Curvey

The NBA Is Coming Back!! Tentative Settlement Reached

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Last night after downing some more Thanksgiving food in my tummy, I flipped on to NBA-TV for the latest news on the NBA lockout. Because I knew the players and owners were meeting in New York.

And BAM! Breaking news! A tentative settlement has been reached between the players and owners. As a basketball junky I am happy as hell that the sport I love is coming back. The NBA is the #1 sport for me as a sports fan followed by football and baseball.

When the NBA season ends I get depressed as a sports fan. Real talk. And of course being here in Seattle, our Sonics left town for the one horse dust town Oklahoma City so I have to follow the many players from the Seattle area playing in the NBA like Jamal Crawford, Nate Robinson, Jason Terry, Brandon Roy, Spencer Hawes and many more.

If every thing goes right, training camp and free agent movement will start December 9th and the NBA season will FINALLY start on Xmas Day with a great triple header. The Knicks vs. Celtics, Lakers vs Bulls and a NBA finals matchup with the champ Mavs vs Heat.

Here is the thing readers. Why in the HELL did it take the owners and players this long to work this out? I just do not understand it. They had been having meetings for two years. Crazy folks.

But anyway I am just glad the NBA is back and I can sit in front of my big screen and enjoy the best atheletes in the world. Yes it is just a 66 game season. But guess what? A 66 game season is better than no season.

NBA Players Reject Owners Deal So Will We See A NBA Season?

ARTICLE FROM nba.com (Full story click here)

I was thinking positive regarding today would be a good day as far as ending the NBA lockout but I was wrong big time because the NBA players rejected the owners deal.

The owners led by David Stern had a deal on the table that would have started the season on December 15th and the season would be a 72 game season instead of 82. But that ain’t going to happen.

The way it looks now readers NBA fans will have to look at old games from the 70’s and 80’s and 90’s on NBA-TV instead of watching KD, KG and Kobe. This is truly truly sad.

I am on the players side big time. The players make the NBA so the owners can bank BIG dollars. Fans pack NBA arenas to see D-Wade, LeBron, Dirk, Seattle’s own Jamal Crawford and Jason Terry and others play but it looks like we will not watch NBA games for awhile.

If you listened to Stern today, the owners will not back down and he blasted Billy Hunter who works for the players. He sounded very arrount and uppity. Like what Bryant Gumbel and another person said about Stern that he acts like a “platation owner and the players are his slaves” This is outrage!! Remember the NBA players are majority African American or a person of color and the owners are 99% white. Micheal Jordan is the only black owner.

Being in Seattle, I cannot watch live NBA basketball anymore so I hav to watch on TV or go to Portland or watch a game their games are always sold out. I have to watch the games on NBA-TV or TNT or ESPN. I just want to see the season start. That’s all I want as a sports fan.   Gordon Curvey

TIRED Of Motor Mouth Black Females On TV!!

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Last night I watched the first edtion of the VH1 new show “Single Ladies”. The stars of the new show are Lisa Raye and Stacy Dash. The show is produced by former guest on Seattle’s “Music Inner City TV” Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit.

It is ANOTHER show with a motor mouth African American female. This time Lisa Raye. Dash is not a motor mouth on the show. At least not as “loud” as Lisa Raye.

Oh by the way, Lisa wants EVERYONE to say Lisa Raye not Raye or Lisa! So on the program Lisa Raye is a loud mouth sista who ONLY deals with brothas with big cash, big cars and is as handsome as hell in her book. She is that way in real life too.

You can say the same for the motor mouth sistas on “Basketball Wife’s”. On that show sistas are just flat out LOUD. Using the worse language on earth. Snapping their necks from side to side, fingers in the face, and yes fighting takes place.

Here is the problem readers in my opinion. A lot of white folks think this is the way most black ladies act all the time. Loud mouths, cussing etc. It is a huge problem. Why does it have to be this way?

Stacy Dash is much less calmer on “Single Ladies” than Lisa Raye. At least on the first show. Right after “Single Ladies” came “Basketball Wifes” and all hell broke out between the so called ladies. To me it is embarrasing readers.

Of course not all black females are loud and cuss every other word. But if you watch a lot of these shows on VH1 etc you see nothing but motor mouth and loud black females. Something has to change.

If a lot of us complain then things will change. Why not more love stories between a black man and a lady on TV? Where is it? I don’t see it on TV. It needs to happen and happen NOW.

Sports News: The Big Fella Shaquille O’Neal is going to retire from the NBA after 19 years of playing. He was a guest on “M.I.C-TV” three times over the years when his team came to Seattle to play our departed Sonics. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ABOUT THIS STORY.

Seattle Writer Good Story On How Basketball Brings Races Together

ARTICLE FROM seattletimes.com (Full story click here)

I have give credit where credit is due. Seattle sports writer Steve Kelly wrote a good story in the Seattle Times (click the link to read) about how basketball helped him and how he realizes how basketball brings black faces and white faces together.

And it is true. No other major sport has the personalities basketball has so in my opinion and Kelly’s it brings us more together as a people.

For instance I went to a game right before the NBA season started at Seattle’s Garfield High School put on by Seattle native and Portland guard Brandon Roy. At the game you saw Asians, East Africans, African Americans and whites in the audience having a good time watching the game of basketball.

I am sorry to say, when you go to a major league baseball game at Safeco Field here in town, the only people of color you see are the ushers and the ones on the teams. It is a little better at NFL games but not much.

But if you look at the audience at a NBA game it is a rainbow of colors. Just like it is in America. It is that way at a high school game, college game and of course the NBA.

Kelly’s article was a great article. I just wish Steve Kelly would be bold enough to write a story in the Seattle Times regarding the radio station he has a show on every week. Sports radio KJR which does the COMPLETE OPPISITE of what his article is about.

The station has ZERO diversity. NONE. In sales, producers, on the air and in management. This does not reflect the fields and courts of America. In my opinion, yes basketball knows about the word DIVERSITY. It helps to bring people together. But Steve a sports radio station which you work for, does not know about the work DIVERSITY nor do they care.      Gordon Curvey

It is the Steelers vs. the Packers in the Super Bowl. I wanted the Jets and Green Bay but it was not meant to be. But it will be a good Super Bowl. To read more on the upcoming Super Bowl and more Click here. Story via sports.yahoo.com

James Hits 38 In A Rout Against TERRIBLE Cleveland Cavs

ARTICLE FROM chron.com (Full story click here)

Sports fans what I saw tonight has me MAD as a guy who loves the sport of basketball. I was hyped up to watch LeBron James come back to Cleveland to play the Cavs. I was ready. I had my popcorn popped and was ready for a good game. Boy was I let down.

First of all I saw James come on the court smiling. But what really pissed me off was seeing a few of the Cavs players hugging James!! WHAT THE HELL!!! Why on earth would ANYONE on the Cavs want to hug LeBron after this cat left the Cavs last summer. When James left he was saying the Cavs team is not a team I can win a title with so I am cutting out of town.

James toyed with the pathetic Cavs. One time he hit a jumper from about twenty five feet right in front of the Cavs bench and he looked at a few of the Cavs smiling!! What the hell!!

The fans who yelled stuff at James had ZERO effect!!! NONE!!!! It was like a JV team playing against the varsity. Boys against men. I was real upset as a sports fan at the TOTAL lack of effect by the Cleveland Cavs in a game that should have been like their game seven. All Cavs fans should be real upset at the team and even head coach Byron Scott. They let their city down. And let me down as a basketball fan.

Again why would ANY Cavs player hug James before the game or after the game. That was terrible. If I was the owner of the Cavs I would be upset at his team. This kind of crap I saw tonight by the Cavs would NOT have happened back in the day when Rick Mahorn and his bad boy Detroit Pistons was playing.

James would have been laid out when he came into the lane for a dunk like he did tonight. The Cavs did not put a hand on LeBron!!!! What a joke!!! What a joke!!!   Gordon Curvey

NBA Season Starts On Tuesday With New Tech Rule

ARTICLE FROM ktla.com (Full story click here)

I love watching football and really only watch baseball when it is World Series time (want Ron Washington and the Rangers to win the Series) but I am a basketball junkie. So I am happy as hell the NBA season is opening on Tuesday.

Of course our team here in Seattle, the Sonics left our city a few years ago to a dust town in Oklahoma City!! A team that was here for FOURTY ONE YEARS and brought our city the only true pro championship in 1979.

I will NEVER get over Clay Bennett moving our team and I will NEVER forget Starbucks founder and former Sonic majority owner Howard Schultz selling the team to Bennett.

So I have to follow the many Seattle natives in the NBA like Jamal Crawford, Jason Terry, Nate Robinson, Rodney Stuckey, Terrence Williams, Spencer Hawes and others and just enjoy the NBA from distance.

With the season starting this Tuesday, there is a potential problem with a new rule that lets the refs call a tech on a player who gets called for a foul and just brings his hands up or shows just a little disgust it seems.

I have seen calls in pre-season that made me say…….what? So you know the players will not like this new rule. Some fans will like the new rule because they are tired of players “whining” when a foul is called on them. But I think this new rule is going to be a big big problem.

But anyway bring on the NBA season!!!     Gordon Curvey

NBA Welcomes Mailman, Pip, D.J And Others To Hall Of Fame

ARTICLE FROM nba.com (Full story click here)

The other day I was in basketball heaven as a basketball junky as I watched the Hall Of Fame event on NBA TV. It was a GREAT event to watch.

Among the folks going in this year was the “The Dream Team” of the 1992 Olympics that included Karl Malone, Magic Johnson, Micheal Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Scottie Pippin, Charles Barkley and others. And the 1960 Olympic team that included the great Jerry West and “The Big O” Oscar Roberson.

Going in as players included Malone and Pippin and WNBA legend Cynthia Cooper, and former Seattle Sonic, the late Dennis “DJ” Johnson. Johnson was represented by his brother and wife.

Johnson was a starting guard for our Sonics win they won the NBA title in 1979. Also going in as a player was the late Gus Johnson.

I think Cynthia Cooper gave the best speech. Followed by Karl Malone. Bob Hurley Sr. has had a good speech.

At least 70 Hall of Famers showed up for the ceremony in Springfield, Ilinois. It was a great seeing all the great NBA players being interviewed and watching tape of great plays made by this years group of Hall Of Famers.

Like I said, I was in basketball heaven.     Gordon Curvey

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Well it is getting near the time where NBA free agents like LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade, Joe Johnson and others can meet with teams and their possible new NBA home. That date is July 1st.

Word is James will meet with the Knicks and Nets on the 1st of July. It is going to be a real crazy time in the NBA starting on the 1st. Real crazy.

Where will James land is the question everyone wants know. Will he stay with the Cavs? Will he sign with the Bulls or Nets or Knicks? How bout the Clippers or Heat?

Cleveland and even James hometown in Akron, are trying to show “King James” that they want him to stay in Ohio and play once again for the Cavs. The Cavs can offer James the most cash. This is for sure.

Rumors Of James Mom Having Sex With Cav Player(s)!!

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Man now this is a possible story readers IF it is true. Their is rumor that LeBron James mom, Gloria James had sex with Delonte West of the Cleveland Cavs. Yes James teammate on the Cavs.

And not only that King James mom might have had sex with ANOTHER member of the Cavs too and it is a prominent player on the Cavs.

IF this is true and again IF this a National Enquirer/TMZ stuff. I mean this is off the hook IF it is true because of how big James is as a national celebrity and sports star.

I will say this. I noticed the other day when the Cavs got beat down by the Celtics, I saw James walk off the court and kiss his mom. THEN I saw another Cavs player who I will not say also plant a kiss on James mom! I said what is up with that?

Hall Of Famer and one of the best little men EVER to play in the NBA, Calvin Murphy said recently every thing about Gloria James is true!!

I am very surprised that this story is not bigger than what it is truth be told. Nothing on CNN or MSNBC or Fox News or Entertainment Tonight and even ESPN. Don’t understand.

Anyway we will keep you informed on the story when more comes out right here on “M.I.C News Magazine”

ARTICLE FROM nba.com (Click here for full story)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

I do not think my home town of Seattle, Washington get enough ink in the media and over the air regarding all the talent from here doing well in the NBA.

S.I. did a great story on all the player from Seattle and surburbs who are in the NBA a few months ago.

That article I am sure made more sports fans aware of the basketball talent coming from the city of Seattle.

Having said that, a big shout out to the Atlanta Hawks Jamal Crawford who won the NBA “Sixth Man” award and to the Houston Rockets Aaron Brooks who won “Most Improved” for thr 2009-10 season.

Crawford went to Rainier Beach High and Brooks went to Franklin High. The schools are rivals here in Seattle and Jason Terry of the Mavericks also went to Franklin. And the Celtics Nate Robinson went to Rainier Beach and Brandon Roy went to Garfield High. There are about 13 players in the NBA from Seattle area and suburbs.

We hope to do interviews many of the Seattle NBA players this summer so look out for that.

Local Seattle Sports Radio Did Not Want Romar As Head Coach

I watched the University of Washington Huskies get beat by West Virginia I just though of a flashback of sports radio hosts here in Seattle not wanting Lorenzo Romar.

Few years ago the Huskies were looking for a new head basketball coach here in Seattle. A lot of names were mentioned at the time. One of which was current head basketball coach Lorenzo Romar.

Also mentioned was the head coach at Gonzaga, Mark Few and local high school star and at the time college head coach Quinn Snyder and others.

On local sports radio KJR here in Seattle, talk show hosts Mitch Levy and Dave “Softy” Mahler and Steve Sandmayer got on the radio and demanded the UW DO NOT HIRE ROMAR. They did it over and over and over again over the air.

They said “what has he done” as a head coach etc. Mahler was the most vocal. The day of the press conference at the UW naming Romar as head coach at the UW, Mahler was blasting the head people at the UW for hiring Romar. The Mahler and Levy at KJR wanted a guy like Snyder or Few. No Romar!!!

I went to the press conference to confront Mahler and ask him why is he there covering the press conference and asking questions when he was on the air blasting Romar the SAME MORNING!! I will admit things got a little heated between myself and Mahler. I did not like him being there acting like everything is cool when he and others at KJR did not want Romar as the new head basketball coach at the University of Washington.

Well a few years later, look at the University of Washington basketball program now!! They were in the Sweet 16!! And Romar has helped send players like Brandon Roy and Nate Robinson and Spencer Hawes to the NBA. Even former player Will Conroy has been up and down in the NBA. Lorenzo Romar has put the U-Dub on the NCAA basketball map.

I get kind of upset when I hear Levy and Mahler on KJR kissing his butt now, knowing they DID NOT want Romar as the head coach. I wish I had a recording of the negative stuff Mahler and Levy was saying about the possible hiring of Romar.

Anyway big shout out to Romar, Quincy Pondexter, Isaiah Thomas, Matthew Bryan-Amanings and the rest of the University of Washington Huskies for going all the way to the Sweet 16. You made us Seattle area sports fan happy!

And also watch ESPN “Right Now” for more news and video from NCAA basketball games and the march to the final four.

Fox News Host Interrupts President Obama Over & Over In Interview

ARTICLE FROM huffingtonpost.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

I just saw the so-called interview that this so called host on Fox News did with President Obama. I will not use the clowns name in my article.

It was one of the worst things I have seen on TV. This dude interrupted the President over and over and over again in this interview on Fox News. Look up the word disrespect. This is what the so called interview was.

If I was the President, I would have worked out of the room and ended the interview. This was planned by Fox News to try to make the President look bad.

In my opinion, President Obama did not have to go on Fox to pitch his health care plan. That would have been the last place I would have went.

Hannity, O’Reilly and others on Fox News treat President Obama like dirt. They don’t even call him President Obama. They call him ‘this guy” or “that guy” or even just “Obama”. But they will call W. Bush “President”.

And by the way, do you think Fox would have treated treated W. Bush in the manner they treated President Obama? The answer is NO!

Check out how the fella treated the President in the link above.

Tiger Woods To Return To Playing At The Masters In April

ARTICLE FROM pga.com (Full story click here)

Well it is about time. The #1 player in the world of golf Tiger Woods is returning to competition on the course at the 2010 Masters in April.

I know fans are happy, CBS, NBC, ESPN, ABC etc is happy, advertisers are happy.

If you are a golf fan, you are happy that Tiger is returning to play.

With Woods returning, that is more cash for everyone. No matter what you think about the problems of Tiger’s love life, one thing is for sure. He is the best golfer maybe in the history of the game and the game needs Tiger Woods.

Yes certain players on the tour blasted Tiger about his problems. Even a older legend like Tom Watson said some things about Tiger. But I am sure Tiger will make folks forget all that win he starts kicking their butt on the golf course and wins events just like before.

Commercials are running already on CBS about the Masters and the return of Tiger. When Tiger arrives at Augusta, it will be one of the biggest days in the history of sports on TV or TV period besides President Obama taking office.

I will be watching. Like I said before the only time I watch golf is when Tiger is near the lead and maybe John Daly. That’s it.

So welcome back Tiger. The sports world needs you and golf needs you. I hope Tiger learned from his huge mistakes and becomes a better man, a better husband and a better father.

Micheal Jordan New Owner Of The Charlotte Bobcats

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Well former B.E.T owner Bob Johnson finally got tired of owning a basketball team and sold it MJ. The person some people say was the greatest basketball player of all time. I say Magic Johnson though.

Jordan has a very very hard job ahead of him. Will he want to keep Hall of Fame member Larry Brown next season as the head coach? This will be interesting because truth be told the Bobcats have improved this year under Coach Brown.

They have a few pieces in place to have a good team with some added additions. They Have Gerald Wallace and Stephen Jackson on the team. The question is this how will MJ be as a owner?

Because MJ might have been a great great player but so far as a GM in Washington and with Bobcats in another position, he has not done a good job. Let’s just tell the truth folks. (yours truly Gordon C. with MJ pic to the right)

One thing for sure it is great that MJ is involved in the NBA in anyway because he is a basketball icon. A sports icon. A flat out legend. I know David Stern is happy to have him around too.

Will he be a owner like Mark Cuban of the Mavericks? Who is at EVERY game sitting right behind the bench of his team? Who knows we will see.

Everyone will be watching Jordan to see what he can do to make the Bobcats a team that can make the playoffs in the future and draw some fans to the arena because when you see a Bobcat game on TV, you will notice a whole lot of empty seats.

So let’s see what the REAL KING (not James) can do as the new owner of the Bobcats in Charlotte.
