Why don't you look at this, man time has changed yo. If Kanye ain't looking like Puff, like fucking David Ruffin mannnnnnnn check out those teeth yo. But take a trip back in the past when Ma$e was on top of the world and Kanye was just getting a foot in the door.

So basically the NBA GMs get an annual survey where they answer certain questions and one of them happened to be infamous "Who would you prefer taking the final shot at the end of the game?" and this time around Kevin Durant got the better share of votes:
Kevin Durant - 46.7%
Kobe Bryant - 40.0%
Carmelo Anthony - 6.7%
This is all statistical it seems, based on the fact that Kobe shot 33% from the field in the last 3 mins of game when his team is ahead or behind by 3 last year. KD shot a 43% in the same situation.
So it's hard to argue with stats, but the fact that most of Kobe's shots come harder because of the lack of another legitimate threat to make those shots so it will always be all eyes on Kobe. Unlike Durant who has Westbrook & Harden to space the floor and limit the double team.
I also feel Melo should've garnered more votes because he is as clutch as anyone, this man as put his team on his back on multiple occasions last year and beyond. Should I remind you of the Easter game last year?
But what do you guys think? Who do you want taking your last shot?

So it seems this connection is in mid-season form, DJ throws it down so aggressively. It must be like Heaven being able to have 2 high-flying power dunkers on your team like that. But we'll see how far that will take these Clippers.

So the highly anticipated debut album for Kendrick Lamar is here, so now that you've had just a little bit of time to digest it, wouldn't it be good to actually understand a little of what K.Dot is saying? Well that's what Rap Genius is for if you've been under a cave. Or even if you got something from the album that others didn't or wanna express something or you just want to know the lyrics, check it out:

I didn't really get to witness his game while he was alive but after the 30 for 30 documentary I really took a liking to him & his game. It's a shame how some people's lives get cut so short, it would've been amazing to see how his career unfolded. Seems all we are left with are good memories & what if's. He would have been 48 yrs old today, RIP Drazen Petrovic.

I'm feeling this, Young Chop is really killing these trap beats nowadays man. Anybody ever notice how slurred Chief Keef's words are when you 1st listen to a song then by your 3rd listen, it's so much clearer? It's weird to me.

I needed last night to finally let out a collective exhale, because I have been just a tad bit skeptical of the validity of Dwight being a Laker since I heard the news. Hey, I'm one of the Laker fans that witnessed CP3 get ripped out of our grasps so I was ready for that "SIKE! We been rescinded the trade, Dwight's in Orlando chillin". But this has made me a believer, now Louis can't wait for the season to start.

So the HBO show 'Hard Knocks' kicks off tonight, and the latest victims are my own Miami Dolphins. If you've never seen or heard about 'Hard Knocks', it's basically an exclusive inside look into the training camp of a team. To me it adds a bunch of unneeded attention to your camp & just causes distractions that you don't need. Somehow my Dolphins didn't get the memo, but our owner cares more about being an entertainment power than he does a football one.
Regardless of the fact, this should be fun. Look for Chad's silly antics to be a major part. And for the QB race, Jesus let it be Matt Moore.
Catch it at 10 pm EST on HBO

Posted by LouisArtisan at 3:20 PM
So I was watching the Olympics, and this was the daytime so I was probably watching some Equestrian shit while KD was spoiling every event I wanted to watch later on that night, and this commercial came on that really caught my eye.
It had a story, it kind of put you in the lives of 2 kids from 2 different sides of the world who both got influenced by the same game. They'd both grow up to great players & crossed paths on numerous occasions. And eventually they returned back where their love for the game all started, in the Olympics & it ends on a dramatic toss with the hashtag #RiseAbove displayed. I thought it was an amazing commercial and even broke my blogging hiatus to bring it to you.
(P.S. blogging hiatus due to college preparation & computer difficulties, but I will be back for a vengeance pretty soon. Thanks peeps)

Okay if you've been following the blog for awhile you may have noticed that I'm not the biggest XV fan, but he does seem to have quite a buzz nonetheless. Although I never really liked the stuff I have heard, I always wanted to give him a real listen. And since this awesome cover caught my attention I decided I'll give it a listen.
And who would I be if I didn't let you guys listen with me. Also XV's The Awesome EP drops on June 26th and you can pre-order it here.

So here we are. 2 teams left, 2 All-World players, 2 legacies (1 making its start and the other seeking validation), but there can only be 1 winner.
These NBA Playoffs have been one wild ride, for the viewers as well as the teams involved. Although, if it has taught us anything it is that jumping to conclusions probably isn't the smartest thing to do. No lead is safe and that goes for leads in games as well as series leads. This series looks to be great one that we'll all enjoy, the hard part will be predicting a winner. But like JFK says, that's why we do it.

So over the span of my latest hiatus, a lot of things have took place. I took time out of my busy schedule to successfully turn 18 and graduate high school haha thanks to everyone who contributed. The boy is officially in the real world now, but I like it and now that I got all that out of the way I can focus on things I wanna do. With all this newfound time on my hands, I was like hmmmm its about time the blog made its summer run.
So I'm back and it's back and I'm gonna be trying my best to make it better and better every day. A Day in The Life of The Fly is back and thanks for your constant support. Especially the people who came on every day checking to see if there was a new post, you're cool people haha
P.S. I wanna give a quick shout out to everyone who graduated in the Class of 2012, we've made it! Congratulations, it's been great to be the ones I've had the pleasure of meeting and I wish all of you success in your own right. It's our time to make it happen so let's go do it!

Nothing special and I'm getting a little disappointed in Kanye lately, hopefully he turns it around because he's Albert Pujols'ing. Also the beat is a lil switched up and I'm not sure how I feel about it. But Check and be heard in the C-section

Today one of the best players from my childhood has retired today. He was one of the hardest working, most spirited, emotional players I've ever see hit the field. He was a beast, an animal, and an outright force on the field that earned his respect. Happy trails, B. Dawkins. We'll always remember you, for your intensity if for nothing else. Here's a lil highlight vid to show the kind of player he was:

Although my interest for the Madden franchise has waned, I'm pretty excited about Gus Johnson not being the play-by-play guy anymore. I swear there's no way you can be THAT excited about a 6 yard gain. Also when you add the fact that his co-commentator, Chris Collinsworth, couldn't be more of his opposite. Jim Nantz & Phil Simms, the CBS broadcasting duo, are set to replace them.
And if you aren't following the little cover vote bracket thing, Cam Newton & Calvin Johnson are in the finals and the voting is still live until 4/25 so go be heard.
