AAAhhh Yes. This was a long time coming. It’s School Daze all over again. Light Skint Vs. Dark Skint. Real Nigga Vs. Black Guys like me. Jokingly it is very funny and I have no problem with the jokes,but it is when people actually feel this way about each other. Imagine being me for a day growing up. Yes I’m light Skint and I’m proud. Does that comes with any benefits? Yes. Honestly it does. I’m not going to lie about it. There is a lot of cocky arrogant Light Skint Brothas who have a lot of self hate about themselves. Problem is when a Light Skint Brotha is cocky, he gets called all kind of bad names. When a darker Brotha does it, it’s ok! But somehow in todays Black culture Light Skint has been labeled weak or frail. Nevermind that Muhammed Ali, Huey Newton, Malcolm X, William Alexander Leidesdorff are all Light Skint. But because of…

What’s up motown. Yea man, I’ve always admired the Detroit Pistons style of play. Tough, rough, rugged, physical. When I was growing up in the late 80s and Early 90s, my 2 favorite teams were my Golden State Warriors and The Detroit Pistons. Too bad I couldn’t play ball at a young age, but as I got older, in the mid 90s, I rebounded like Rodman. Here’s my 10 Favorite Pistons in my lifetime and with respect to RickMahorn, BillLambier, AdrianDantley, DaveBing, and yes even you BrianCardinal hahaha they didn’t make my list. Nothing personal.
Hopefully the 2017 DetroitPistons will see our posts and gives them motivation to move up in the standings. I’m rooting for y’all Motown so no more inconsistency. Snatch that 6th seed as the underground voice of the Pistonshas been telling y’all. Let’s get it.

Yo. What’s happening everyone. It’s Tareau here. So I’ve had my CDL for 6 years now. Dave actually convinced me to get my CDL. I have experience driving Leylands, Bluebirds, Temsa, MCIs, Setras, Freightliners, Prevosts, Van Hools, Ankais, and Gilligs. Today I am showing you the MCI. MCIs are smooth to drive and handles like […]

Wow. As you know, I am no way a Cavs fan. However, I am a NBA fan and I must give credit where credit is due. Last night, March 3rd 2017, the Cleveland Cavaliers faced off against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta. On a night where the ATL retired the great Pistol Pete‘s
jersey, and also Kyle Korver making his return, the Cavs stole the show. I’m not writing this lil post to dick ride the Cavs. I am writing because an important, underrated part of this record is not being talked about.
The Cavs shot 46 3 pointers last night, and made 25 of them. 25 people. That’s 54% from downtown. To me, that is more impressive than anything because it was well within the flow of the game. It wasn’t like *cough HOUSTON ROCKETS. cough* just jacking up 3 pointers. And you know, I am not a big stats guy. But check this out: LeBron went 6 for 10, Kyrie went 5 for 8, Channing Frye went 3 for 6, Iman Shumpert went 2 for 6, Kyle Korver went 3 for 7, Derrick Williams went 3 for 4, and Richard Jefferson went 3 for 5. All this without J.R. Smith and Kevin Love.
Do you guys think the defending champions can pull it off again? Let me know in the comments section. ✌
Hey there guys. You’re probably wondering why I waited so long to recap the Allstar weekend. No? Meh. Anyways, I wanted to focus on the trades together with the festivities, seeing that they go hand and hand.
All Star weekend is losing its appeal as I get older. It seems more of a plethora of advertisements and social media gossip, more than focusing on the actual events. The players at times either look tired or disinterested. Like they look like they are not genuinely having fun. So anyways with the exception of the stupid celebrity game, let’s get to the events.
2017 World vs. USA Game (Rising Stars challenge)
Winner: Team World.
MVP: Jamal Murray
2017 Skills Contest Winner: Kristaps Porzingis
2017 3pt Shootout Winner: Eric Gordon
This was the highlight of my night. I honestly thought Kyrie Irving was going to win. But as Dave says “Eric Gordon doesn’t jump, so he’s built for this contest.” This was a great contest. Went to overtime. Gotta strategies them money balls.
2017 NBA Slam Dunk contest winner: Glenn Robinson III
Well at least it was better than when Fred Jones won it in 2004. They had to pick a winner and his dunks were goid. Not great but good. But there’s too much hype. 2016 was awesome and I know that there should be some changes. For instance. If you miss a dunk, you have to do another dunk. No more 5 attempts to do a crappy eastbound dunk.
2017 NBA Allstar game MVP: Anthony Davis
2017 NBA Trades:
Well the Trade deadline just passed a few hours ago. But let’s recap all the trades in the past month leading up to today’s deadline.
Phoenix Suns Receive: Jared Sullinger, 2017 second-round pick, 2018 second-round pick
Toronto Raptors Receive: SF P.J. Tucker
Toronto Is really trying to make a leap past the Cavs with this trade and I am loving it. Jared Sullinger out of shape ass will lose some weight in the desert.
Atlanta Hawks Receive: Cash/Trade exception
Phoenix Suns Receive: PF Mike Scott
Mike Scott is an Athletic dude who can really be a pest on defense, when motivated.
Denver Nuggets Receive: C Roy Hibbert
Milwaukee Bucks Receive: 2nd round pick, $5 million trade exception
So Denver gets another big??? A big waste of space. Hahahaahahahahaha.
Houston Rockets Receive: PG Marcelo Huertas
Los Angeles Lakers Receive: PG Tyler Ennis
Ok look at the Lakers, listening to me about getting rid of Huertas. I heard the Rockets will waive Huertas. But whatever. Ennis should fit, right on in with the bandits.
Chicago Bulls Receive: C Joffrey Lauvergne, SG Anthony Morrow, PG Cameron Payne
Oklahoma City Thunder Receive: PF/C Taj Gibson, SF/PF Doug McDermott, 2018 second-round pick
It was about time, Taj Gibson left. His toughness will be appreciated in OKC paired with Steven “The Stash” Adams. McDermott with Oladipo and Russ. Look out. The Bulls are officially NBA purgatory. Them and the Kings, Nets and Magic.
Brooklyn Nets Receive: SG K.J. McDaniels
Houston Rockets: Trade Exception
But K.J. is going to Brooklyn to do what exactly? All that athleticism just going to waste. Sigh.
Dallas Mavericks Receive: C Nerlens Noel
Philadelphia 76ers Receive: C Andrew Bogut, SF Justin Anderson, 2017 1st round pick.
Nerlens Noel will flourish under Rick Carlisle and with Harrison Barnes in Dallas running thangs, sky is the limit for for Nerlens. Bogut will probably not play or be used sparingly.
Atlanta Hawks Receive: PF Ersan Ilyasova
Philadelphia 76ers Receive: C Tiago Splitter, 2017 second-round pick.
Look at Atlanta finding quality pieces for Millsap and Company. Good move.
Brooklyn Nets Receive: SF/PF Andrew Nicholson, SG Marcus Thornton, 2017 first-round pick
Washington Wizards Receive: SF Bojan Bogdanovic, PF Chris McCullough
So Thornton goes back to the Nets? Sigh. Well at least Bojan will help out the Wizards with the scoring off the bench.
Houston Rockets Receive: PG/SG Lou Williams
Los Angeles Lakers: SG/SF Corey Brewer, 2017 first-round pick
Great trade for both teams. Lou Williams will be in hog heaven on a team where they shoot nothing but 3s. Corey Brewer brings toughness, championship experience, leadership, and professionalism to the locker room and high energy on the court.
New Orleans Pelicans Receive: SF/PF Omri Casspi, C DeMarcus Cousins
Sacramento Kings Receive: SG/SF Tyreke Evans, PG Langston Galloway, SG Buddy Hield, 2017 first-round pick, 2017 second-round pick.
So I wonder how Tyreke Evans feels about going back to Sac? New Orleans please welcome Omri Casspi. Hahahahahaha. Man I hope Buddy Heild becomes a star.
Charlotte Hornets Receive: C Chris Andersen
Cleveland Cavaliers Receive: 2017 second round pick
Orlando Magic Receive: SG/SF Terrence Ross and a 1st Round Pick
Toronto Raptors Receive: PF/C Serge Ibaka
Probably the most underrated trade this season. Serge will be back to his old self in Toronto. Terrence Ross better start playing some D or he will be out of the league soon.
Denver Nuggets Receive: C Mason Plumlee, 2018 second-round pick
Portland Trail Blazers Receive: C Jusuf Nurkic, 2017 first-round pick
Plumlee is a Playmaking big and will mesh well with Joker. Jusuf will never see The ball in Rip City due to Dame and CJ playing keep away with the whole team
Charlotte Hornets Receive: C Miles Plumlee
Milwaukee Bucks Receive: PF/C Spencer Hawes, C Roy Hibbert

Hey there, what’s happening Detroit? It’s Tareau Barron, San Francisco’s own. But y’all can call me “Detroit’s step son!” I’ve visited Detroit back in November and it was awesome. So I feel like I’m qualified to speaking on some things. What you don’t believe me? See for yourself!
Bam! Proof! I’ve got the receipts. Anyways, enough about me. Let’s talk about Mr. Anquan Boldin. Man it hurt when he left my 49ers but he needed to leave due to our team sucking. I’m happy he was able to be serviceable with another team. Anquan Boldin is actually open to resigning back with the Lions for this up coming season. How happy are you to hear that? Boldin had 67 receptions for 584 receiving yards, with 8 touchdowns. Not bad for the 3rd fiddle, right? Behind Golden Tate’s 1,077 receiving yards (4 td’s) and…
