After a previous ill-advised shot in the last seconds of Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, Ron Artest came up big as Kobe Bryant missed the long three from the corner in the final seconds of the game. The Los Angeles Lakers finished the game 103-101 preventing an overtime period. The Lakers look to close this series out in Game 6 in Phoenix.

Inspired by my god-sister, who happens to be a full blown teenager, I've decided to take a crack at why parents don't understand their children. How many times have you found yourself saying "Pops' tripping, he want me to ask for my bike back, you know I wouldn't trip." Ok, maybe not in those exact words but you get the picture. We've all had moments where we didn't understand why our mom's and dad's or parental figures made us do things or say things that quite honestly we didn't feel like doing or saying. Or maybe it was something we wanted to do and they said no!!! The fact is, parents love us enough to protect us from the poor decisions us young people can make at times. It can be overbearing and suffocating at times but their hearts are usually in the right place. In reverse, parents even though you don't have to answer to your children, at least talk to them about why you make the decisions you make. Once the lines for communication are open, things may change and your child/teenager may be more receptive to the overruling decisions you make. Results may vary lol. "So to all the kids all across the land, there's no need to argue parents just don't understand".

If you haven't heard Alicia Keys' latest single "Unthinkable", then I suggest you do. Off her latest album, The Element of Freedom, Alicia Keys encompasses a story of taking the next step to love. It's an open and honest account about what happens when two individuals make a mutual agreement to take things to another level. I'm feeling this one!!!

That's right I said it!!!! Kobe Bryant is a more complete player than Lebron James. Lebron is a freak of nature but every year people give him a different excuse as to why he can't seem to get any NBA jewelry. What's the excuse this year? No team? Injury? Kobe Bryant has a swollen left knee and broken finger. A broken finger!!!!!! Kobe Bryant is the complete player Michael Jordan was back in the 90's when the Chiacago Bulls empire was still in place. Survey says.............Kobe Bryant the real league MVP!!!

After all the speculation that Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers were the front runner for this year's NBA title, they have been eliminated by the Boston Celtics in game 6 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals. Boston's attack, led by Kevin Garnett's 22 point performance along with Rajon Rondo's 21 points, and game high 12 assists, spearheaded the onslaught that finally put the Cleveland Cavaliers season to rest. Lebron James' 27 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists just weren't enough to fend off the balanced attack of the Boston Celtics. The Boston Celtics will now move on to face the defending Eastern Conference champions, the Orlando Magic.

For years people have always said I was like a pastor, or a minister, a deacon or something. Most people say that I speak well or I speak with wisdom and intelligence but in actuality it's never intentional.I've been haunted since the age of 8 of going into some type of ministry because people have always seen a side of me that God has chosen to develop to allow me to affect the lives of others. So will I become a pastor, minister, deacon, reverend etc? Right now I have no intentions to, but you never know. Until then, I will continue to follow the path that God has placed on me.

If you grew up in the 90's I know for a fact you definitely remember All That!!!

All That was full of memorable sketches such as "Repair Man", "Good Burger", "Vital Information", and "Ear Boy". What was your favorite skecth?

For years I've watched Maryland forget many of its sons and daughters of the game of basketball. Many top basketball players go on to do great things and have great careers but are often forgotten because of the stumbling boxes they faced in life and in their careers. Majority of these players were at one point touted for greatness but were abandoned after they did not live up to the expectations of the media and all spectators who have a biased opinion about only being successful if one reaches a "Big Six" conference or reaching the NBA. Stories are then fabricated and truths become distorted and people no longer know the truth about many of Maryland's best basketball players and what success they've obtained. Today that is changed. Forgotten Soldiers is a column that will tell the stories of many of the individuals who have fallen victim to this abandonment. It will finally put to rest the false rumors and speak of the truth, the success these various basketball players have had over the years.
There has been speculation that the amazing free agent class of 2010 NBA players could shake up the basketball world as we know. With a number of displeased superstars, NBA franchises are on the brink of losing their long time meal tickets to another fledgling franchise with cap room to pay these superstars what they ask for. After a long hard fought season with the Miami Heat, Dwyane Wade now faces a decision that could impact a number people including players and NBA executives alike. One of the biggest free agents of the 2010 class, there has been speculation that Wade may make a jump to the New York Knicks along with fellow free agent superstar Lebron James to revive a once historic basketball franchise. There also has been chatter about Wade's new found affiliation with Chicago Bulls Legend Michael "Air" Jordan and his thoughts of returning home to Chicago to bring life back to the Bulls with second year sensation Derrick Rose. Only Time will tell.
Last night the Los Anegeles Lakers closed out another storied playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder with a 95-94 win. Kobe "The Black Mamba" Bryant exploded with a 32 point, 7 rebound, 3 assist performance while Oklahoma City Thunder star, Kevin Durant finished with a team high 26 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assist of the game. The game saving performance of the night goes to Los Angeles Lakers All-Star 7-footer Pau Gasol who got the game winning tip in with only 0.5 seconds left on the clock as Kobe Bryant missed his final jumper of the game with 1.08 seconds left in game 6. The Los Angeles Lakers moved on the Western Conference semis to face the Utah Jazz who put the Denver Nuggets championship dreams to rest with a 112-104 win in Utah. Tip off begins Sunday @ 3:30pm ET.
