Warriors 133 Clippers 120 F...@kdTREY5 @StephenCurry30 and @KlayThompson all get into the Twenties as #Dubs hits the Clip Joint with a 130 plus point pack!..."Logo Watch" as the CLips need CP3 with the Blake Show going Solo Act as L.A.C. is slowly but surely slipping in the West! #GSWvsLAC #DubNation #Clips #PacificDivision #LogoWatch

The Golden State Warriors might have found themselves in the "Dogs Days" of "Logo Watch" as they continue to trend north into the green in 2K17. "Dubs" goes undermanned slightly into Staples Center dba Clip Joint aka new L.A. Sports Arena as they give Doc Rivers CP3-less Squad the NBA on TNT Thursday Night Business.

The Warriors led 65-55 at the break and had a comfortable lead at the end of three by the score of 94-77. Stephen Curry led G.S.W. with 29 points as he waited on eleven tables with Kevin Durant just missing a triple-double with 26 points and ten helpers as he also grabbed eight off the glass. Klay Thompson playing 3rd Wheel on a team where the 3rd wheel might be the #1 option on most teams in "Logo Watch" added 21 for Golden State who shot nearly 53% from the field and 42% from arc.

"Blake Show
High-Flying Act

That 133-120 final was not as close as it may seem as the Clips "Blake Show" led all scorers with 31 points and eight boards. That Clips back court minus CP3 (Austin Rivers/JJ Redick) giving all they have combined for 37 points with Jamal "206" Crawford adding 21 points.

With the "W" Oakland Pro Hoops moves to 43-7 while the Clips fall to 31-19 and have fallen back out of the West V.I.P. as the Salt Palace Jazz are coming.

NBA Power Rankings Take #2 February 2, 2K17 in "SQUEEZE the ORANGE" as the real question is with #Believeland struggling through January 2K17 who is the real threat to #Dubs24-7-365 in the east as we know who is the threat in the west? Is the C's really the 2nd best team in the East behind "Pocket" Point God Isaiah Thomas? Don;t look now here comes Gordon Hayward and the Salt Palace Jazz! #NBAPowerRankings2 #SqueezeTheOrange #DubNation #CavsNation #GreenTeam #SaltPalaceJazz

As we unveil the new NBA Power Rankings for February 2K17 the Cleveland Cavaliers his a few bumps in the road in January. Not to mention they listened top a trade for the "Bully" of World's Most Famous dba 'Melo Anthony for their own in the "Lake Oswego Monster" dba Kevin Love. Yes the Cavs did their homework and let the Knicks get the one-hit voicemail.

Now looking at the Eastern Conference closer the new Boston Celtics led by Tacoma, Washington "Pocket" Point God Isaiah Thomas is making a huge leap in the rankings as they are my #2 team in the East behind the Cavs. Yes Team Drake Drizzy dba #WeTheNorth the Toronto Raptors have slowed a bit and the East is all about mediocrity as we go to press and that is not a good look.

As for the Golden State Warriors cruising through January 2K17 with all that firepower looks to be the heavy favorite as they still are trying to find themselves believe it or not. Both the Houston Rockets and San Antonio Spurs will most likely battle themselves in the West Semis only to see "Dubs" for the right to play for the parade route!

Matty Ice is the NFL M.V.P. who else was better start to finish?..."A QB Driven League" + Sunday Talk" = #RiseUp QB Matt Ryan was Spectacular in Season 9 and the Points the Falcons put up in 2K16 was in the O-Zone Layer! @M_Ryan02 #MattyIce @AtlantaFalcons #SuperBowlLI #MattyIce4MVP #AQBDrivenLeague #SundayTalk

Why are we even talking about who is the 2K16 NFL M.V.P.? Yes we live in that world of Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers and they are real good some of the best we have ever seen. Now moving into this season and this season only as we are not talking about career and "Legacy" but this season.

From week 1 through week 17 it is a no-brainer that Atlanta Falcons Sunday Signal-Caller is hands down the 2K16 NFL M.V.P.. The other two aforementioned QBs one was suspended 4 weeks and the other was lost for 4 weeks and played like Bison Droppings yeah I went there.

Ryan was sensational as he led the Falcons to an impressive 11-5 as they rolled over both the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers in convincing fashion. You want more numbers from the former Chestnut Hill Mass University Star who was a Triple-Option QB back in H.S. near Philadelphia PA..

Atlanta led the "Shield" in Points at 33.8 ppg and 2nd in Blades of grass per game (Yards) at a whopping 415.8 per game. Now Yards means absolutely nothing if your not putting the Pigskin in the end zone. 

There is no argument here as Ryan also won the Walter Payton "Man of the Year" Award...

#2 Kansas vs #4 Kentucky in "Campus Hardwood" w/PLAYBOOK as Rock Chalk Jayhawk invades RUPP to battle Big Blue Nation with NBA Scouts and Scouting Services going SRO! #KUvsUK #KansasvsKentucky #RockChalkJayhawk #BBN #CampusHardwood

The game didn't lose any of its luster even though both teams come in after talking L's. The Jayhawks took it on the chin playing "Huggy Bear" Bob Huggins and the Mountaineers in Morgantown. The Wildcats lost to Rocky Top Tennessee as Rick Barnes and his group came to play.

Now the plot thickens as both were probably looking towards this match up and not making any excuses for the L's its just the fact of the matter. Kansas will get the edge because of that experienced back court of Senior PG Frank Mason (19.9 ppg) and Junior Combo Guard Devonte Graham (13.7 pgg). Throw in Super Freshman Josh Jackson (15.5 ppg) they are averaging a combined 49.1 ppg and that is Top 10 in the country.

The Wildcats super Freshman back court of Malik Monk (21.9 ppg) and De'Aaron Fox (16.2 ppg) are as good as advertised. They are guided by their unquestioned leader in the Garden State's Isaiah Briscoe (14.1 ppg) and those three combine for 52.2 ppg.

If all those trio's numbers cancel themselves out the game will be won in and around the paint with the "Hustle Board" heavily involved. Let's go to the Tale of the Tape:

(18-2, 7-1 Big 12)

Spurs 103 Pelicans 119 F...#SpurWars was on the shelf at the Big Smoothie in NOLA as JRUE & Mr. JONES & the "BROW" are starting to put things together for State Bird of Louisiana Hoops!..."Logo Watch" with who is watching the PELICANS make some noise in the West! #SASvsNOP #SpursFamilia #StateBirdOfLouisianaHoops #SpursFans #Pelicans #LogoWatch

The 2k16-17 San Antonio Spurs have been status quo coming out of the Motel as they entered tonight's game in the Big Easy at the Big Smoothie Center at a 20-4 clip. The Spurs played #SpurWars in the 1st half as they led 57-48 at the break led by Kawhi Leonard and L-Train Aldridge. That all changed in the 2nd half as the Pelicans hit overdrive outscoring the Spurs 71-46 on their way to a rather impressive 119-103 "W"!

That Pelicans furious run in the 2nd half started behind Anthony Davis dba the "Brow" (17 pts 22 rebs) and Jrue Holiday (23 pts 11 asst). The N.O.P. led 85-84 at the end of three then started the 4th frame on a 15-8 run that culminated into a route as Pelicans super-sub and Anthony Davis' running mate at Kentucky Terrence Jones added 21 points off the bench.

San Antonio allowed the Pelicans to shoot nearly 52% from the field. The biggest difference in the game was the Pelicans Bench outscored that Spurs Bench 55-38 led by Mr. Jones and that was the nail in the coffin!

The N.O.P. moves to 19-28 as #SpursFamilia falls to 36-10...

"MONSTERS 94 x 50" talking NBA's Top 8 Snipers dba Shooting Guards!...You know who is atop the LIST its "Fear the Beard" from Clutch City!...Who else is on the list with @JHarden13 is it #WeTheNorth "D2" from Compton and Jimmy Buckets from the "West Side Story Report"?...My Top 10 Snipers in "Logo Watch" 2K16-17! #MonstersSeries #LogoWAtch #NBASnipers @JHarden13 @DeMar_DeRozan @JimmyBuckets #CJMcCollum

James Harden of Three Stripes Basketball has been a whirling dervish act since leaving Thunder Alley in O.K.C.. Now fast forward to year 4 with the Houston Rockets and teaming up with Offensive Guru Mike D'Antoni #13 is playing at his highest level yet!

How high well M.V.P. Numbers as  he leads the "Logo" in Waiting Tables (Assists) with 11.6 per outing. Is Harden the #1 Sniper in the "Logo" for 2K16-17 you bet but who else joins him on the list and in order will be fascinating!

"Monsters 94 x 50"
Top 8 NBA Snipers
2K16-17 Season

* denotes a Shooting Guard not Small Forward on my list

1. @JHarden13 dba "Fear the Beard" #13 Three Stripes #ClutchCity

2. @Demar_DeRozan dba "D2" from Compton #TeamDrakeDrizzy

3. @JimmyButler dba "Jimmy Buckets" #WestSideStoryReport *

4. @CJMcCollum dba C.J. from #RipCity

5. @KlayThompson dba KLAYmetheus #DubNation

7. @RealDealBeal23 dba B-Dub from D.C. Hoops #WizKidsDC

8. Dwayne Wade dba Wade County #WestSideStoryReport 

"D2" from Compton

360 Degrees

Harden has been fabulous all year long with a 28.6 ppg 11.6 apg and 8 rpg almost a triple-double...

DeRozan might be the best all-around Shooting guard in the "Logo" as he is a big and athletic guard that is equally effective facing up off the bounce or posting up going "Mouse in the House"...

Jimmy at a 24.9 ppg clip as he and Wade County are both on this list as both are SGs in my guesstimation...

McCollum plays off Dame Lillard in Rip City but is just as lethal at the PG with all sorts of craftiness and tricks in his game with a Lehigh University Engineering Handle and that is as lethal as it gets...

Is Klay the best defender at SG on this list he might be as his numbers have fallen off due to the Easy Money Sniper joining "Dubs" but he is still big-time when the lights com eon...

Beal if he can stay away from Injuries could easily be Top 5 on this list as He along with Wiz Kids D.C. Point God John Wall when both are healthy and going are "Bad and Boujee"...

Wade County can still go as he give him the nod ever so slightly over players like Wes Matthews from the Mavs and K.C.P. dba Kentavious Caldwell-Pope from the Motor City Pistons...

Warriors 113 Hornets 103 F...The "Human Torch" goes back home to BUZZ City as #Dubs24-7-365 turns it on late to beat the Hornets with some Deeeeeeee-fense!..."Logo Watch" with the West Best and K.D. is not nice! #GSWvsCHA #DubNation #BuzzCity #WarriorsGround #Dubs24-7-365

The Charlotte Hornets were up for the game as they wanted no part of Charlotte, North Carolina  Native leaving Buzz City with a "W" especially the day after Curry's High School retired his jersey. To a man on the Hornets Roster they wanted to get this for themselves and #BuzzCity as it was a packed house in the Queen City, N.C..

After the Hornets led 53-47 at the break the Hornets came out firing on all cylinders led by Wings Nic Batum (16 pts 8 rebs 6 asst) and M.K.G. dba Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (15 pts 9 rebs) as they carried the offensive load for the Hornets though the 3rd for a 80-75 Charlotte lead.

That's when the "Human Torch" Stephen Curry and @kdTREY5 dba K.D. is not nice went H.A.M. on Buzz City as they closeout the Hornets on a 38-23 run in the 4th with K.D. and Steph combining for 19 straight points at one point.

K.D. led all scorers with 33 pts (11-20 FG 10-10 FT) with Curry adding 28 pts (6-12 3pt FG)  as Dubs moves to 39-7 with Klaymetheus Thomspon dropping 19. Buzz City falling in a tie at 23-23 with the Chicago Bulls gets a team-high 26 points from Kemba Walker as Buzz City was -12 in points from the Arc.

Is Golden State the best team in the "Logo" as we go to bet they are!   

Ben Roethlisberger/Steelers News!...Bluedude Sportstalk FRONT LINE January 25, 2K17 along with "Triple Diamond Chronicles" as we talk Steelers QB Big Ben will he go or stay and will the Black and Yellow select a QB in Round 1 of 2K17? @_BigBen7 @Steelers #SteelerNation #HereWeGo #Steelers #FrontLine #TripleDiamondChronicles


All the chatter the last couple of days has been about at least in Steelers Nation will future NFL HOF QB Big Ben Roethlisberger retires as he was quoted as saying earlier in the week, "I am going to weigh all my options"!

Now looking at it closer yes Big Ben should weigh all his options as he turns 35 years of age in March and has a laundry full of various maladies it that will take its toll. Does his take on what he might do have a lot to do with how the Black and Yellow exited the bet! Does lead man Mike Tomlin and that Steelers Coaching Staff need to tweak that staff they might have to starting with maybe O-Coordinator Todd Haley. Do the Steelers need to draft a QB to back up been and possibly be the future in round 1 if he is there at pick #30...possibly!

That "D" finally got exposed as the Patriots knew the Steelers were going to go Hybrid Tampa 2 Coverage mixed in with that Steelers Zone Blitz and they picked it apart. If anything how about moving to a little more man to man press coverage/bump and run and see how the "D" goes. Yes you need the personnel to make such a leap but the Steelers have that personnel.

Steelers Top 10 Plays in 2K16 Season

Here is the skinny looking at what we will get back from a Roster standpoint and immediate needs:

DT/DE/Captain Cam Heyward
WR Markus Wheaton (Contract is up/Free Agent)
WR Martavis Bryant (Off 1-year suspension)
#30 pick in Rd #1 in the 2K17 NFL Draft

Immediate Needs:

OLB/Red Jersey Collector
ILB (to replace Lawrence Timmons as he contract is up) 
Big Ben needs a back-up QB


Secondary...Can we mix in some Man Press Coverage/Bump and Run?
Edge Rushers need to be dynamic...Pass Rush/Hurries/Red Jersey Collections is directly correlated to Pass Defense  

360 Degrees

That "D" will get immediate help upfront with Heyward back into the fold as he will join Stephen Tuitt and 2nd-year to be keeper NT Jarvon Hargrave...

Timmons can still play but Pittsburgh needs another young/athletic player here in that middle to join forces with Ryan Shazier...

QBs in the 2K17 NFL Draft Class is not deep once you get pass ND Deshone Kizer, UNC Mitch Truibisky, and Clemson Deshaun Watson...all 3 will be long gone when the Steelers go pick #30!

WR Bryant will be a huge addition back if he is back mentally and can stay away from those demons...

WR Wheaton just cannot stay healthy and maybe he will take a Hometown Discount on the contract the Steelers will offer him if they offer him...Eli Rogers is a keeper one would think!   

As for Big Ben he still has three years left on his deal and he has to be thinking Super Bowl #4 and win #3...

Clippers 110 Seventy-Sixers 121 F...No "Embiid" in comes "N2" dba Nerlens Noel as the new Philly 76ERS roll past the new Clip Joint!..."Logo Watch" residing in of all places Wells Fargo Arena on Broad Street in Philly...and winning!

I was the first to say why on earth is the Philadelphia Seventy-Sixers hanging on to lead man Brett Brown off that Gregg Popovich Tree and now looking back on that I am just a Sports Blogger with 100 million other bloggers trying to get a piece of the pie!

The new 76ers go end to end and throttle the new L.A. Clippers 121-110 and what was most impressive Philly was without man-child and "Dream Shake" wannabe Joel Embiid who has major game everywhere on the hardwood.

No Embiid in comes the disgruntled Nerlens "I am no ones B-Team Player" Noel and he adds to the Sixers pot with 19 points and eight boards with three blocks. Throw in Richaun Holmes (Bowling Green) chipping in with 18 points and Sixers unsung hero Robert Covington (14 pts 8 rebs) Philly was impressive buying into all that Brown is preaching.

The Clips behind 5-Star lead man Doc Rivers gets 42 points from its back court with no CP3 in sight as JJ Redick (22 pts) and Austin Rivers (20 pts) kept the Clips within striking distance. It was the play or lack of play from "Bigs" Blake Griffin (formerly of the Blake Show back to Government name) and DeAndre Jordan netting just 22 points between them as Jordan did grab twenty boards.

Look if the Clips do not move Griffin by the Trade Deadline it would shock me real talk. With CP3 out that maybe nearly impossible but the Clips need to move on somewhere within that starting five.

Philly moves to 16-27 as their impressive January 2K17 continues. The Clips falling to 30-17 and entrenched in the 4th slot in the west must win these types of games or they will start slipping in the west...    

Bulls 100 Magic 92 F...#SeeRed follows Jimmy Buckets and Wade County as they slay the O-Magic in Mouse Town as the "West Side Story Report" is all knotted up at 23 in both columns! #CHIvsORL #BullsNation #OMagic #SeeRed #WestSideStoryReport

The Chicago Bulls and lead man Fred "The Mayor" Hoiberg (that would be the Mayor of Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa) needed a "W" to get back to .500 and that is exactly what the get. Behind 21 points and seven boards along with seven thefts from Dwayne Wade and 20 points and eight boards from Jimmy Butler the Bulls hang on in the swank Amway Center in Mouse Town Central Florida 100-92 for a much-needed "W"!

Chicago led at the break 52-49 only to lead 78-73 after three. The O-Magic did a great job of hanging around as they were led by "Big" Nikola Vucevic's 20 points and eight boards as he led all five O-Magic starters in double figures.  The difference in this contest was the Bulls Bench Mob which outscored the O-Magic Bench 37-20.

It was Brazilian Christiano Felicio and Doug McDermott from #SeeRed each tallying a dozen providing that 2nd unit and the Bulls starters some much-needed offense. Down the stretch it was Wade County along with Jimmy Buckets doing most of the damage as Chicago held the O-Magic to near 42% from the field and just under 32% from the arc as the Bulls shot nearly 46% from thew field and 32% from 23'9".

Chicago with the "W" moves to 23-23 as the O-Magic falls to 18-29...   

"MONSTERS 94 x 50" talking NBA's Top 8 Point Gods!...An argument that goes on forever in a day is it the Human Torch of #DubNation or Why Not? #0 from the Regulators Report O.K.C. or even Uncle Drew from the "Land" Top 8 Point Guards in "Logo Watch" 2K16-17! #MonstersSeries #LogoWatch #NBAPointGods @RussWest44 @StephenCurry30 @Isaiah_Thomas @KyrieIrving

There is no real answer depending on who you talk and the Bluedude's #1 NBA Point God is solely based on the 2K16-17 season because if we start talking of all-time I would be writing until we get to Buck Rogers and the 25th Century.

It is a real argument and one that is hotly contested throughout sports talking the Big 4 the Logo, the Show, Ice Games (NHL) and Grown Man Tackle Football! This is the Bluedude's Top 8 NBA Point Guards in order and I stand by this:

"Monsters 94 x 50"
Top 8 NBA Point Gods
2K16-17 Season

1. @RussWest44 dba Why Not #0 #ThunderUp

2. @StephenCurry30 dba Human Torch #DubNation

3. @Isaiah_Thomas dba the I.T. Guy #GreenTeam

4. @KyrieIrving dba Uncle Drew #CavsNation 

5. @Dame_Lillard dba "License to Lillard" #RipCity

6.  @JohnWall dba Wall-Star #WizKidsDC

7. @KLow7 dba K.L. of Team Drake Drizzy #WeTheNorth

8. @CP3 dba CP3 #newClipJoint

the I.T. Guy 

360 Degrees

Russell Westbrook averaging a Triple-Double for the season as we go to press....c'mon now like I need to say anymore!

Curry doing what Curry does as the numbers are down but they added the Easy Money Sniper #35...

the I.T. Guy in Bean Town leads all players in 4th quarter points and they always talk about size but never the size of that "Valentine" dba your Heart...Thomas is 82-Game Business and nothing else! 

Kyrie has the best Handle (N.J. Turnpike Rush Hour) in the "Logo" and he might be the #1 PG on this list at making the play at the end of regulation whether that be a shot or the play! 

"Dame Dolla" has Bars and the pride of the "Town" Oakland CA is a complete PG and his offensive tools are ridiculous...he better be an All-Star this season Coach Kerr from #Dubs24-7-365

Wall-Star the #1 point god not named Russ Westbrook at getting to the rim from one baseline to another really a true One-Man Fast break...

K-Low says he will opt-out of his contract at years end but he needs #WeTheNorth and his Partner in Crime "D2" dba DeMar Derozan from Compton CA and will be going nowhere so calm down Team Drake Drizzy...maybe the best defender at PG on this list... 

CP3 I think age is catching up to him but still solid but no longer at the top of the heap...

Cavaliers 122 Pelicans 124 F...No "BROW" from State Bird of Louisiana Hoops no problem!..."LOGO WATCH" from the Big Smoothie in NOLA as Uncle Drew goes off for 49 with King James going Triple-Double for the "Land"!...Me and Mr. Jones with 36 and Jrue not Drew with 33 leading the Pelicans to victory! #CLEVsNOP #Believeland #StateBirdOfLouisianaHoops #LogoWatch

Not only did the New Orleans Pelicans not have the "Brow" (Anthony Davis when healthy the #2 Player in the NBA hands down and yes I went there) they hit the defending Eastern Conference Champions with a 70-piece with sides at the break.

Yes "State Bird of Louisiana" Hoops led 70-50 at the break and was dominating. That N.O.P. Point God everyone forgot about and was an All-Star back in his Philly Days Jrue Holiday netted 33 points for the Pelicans as former #BBN and Kentucky Wildcats SF Terrence Jones the pride of Portland, OR Jefferson H.S. led the N.O.P. with a team-high 36 points.

The Cavs in the 3rd like all teams in the "Logo" do made their run by closing that 20-point lead to 94-86 by the end of the frame. Cavs All-Star Point God dba Uncle Drew went O-Zone Layer with a game-high 49 points as he along with King James (26 pts 12 assts 10 rebs) as Cleveland got to within three points twice late in the 4th only to be turned away.  

New Orleans moves to 18-27 as they are playing way better as they get some much-needed bodies back in Holiday and Tyreke "Rekehavoc" Evans. The Cavs falling to 30-13 knows better especially with Anthony Davis not in the building as they dug themselves a hole they could not get out...   

FALCONS & PATRIOTS in the "AFTERMATH" talking Dirty Birds and the Boston Patriots head to Super Bowl 51 as the "Pack" and the "Black and Yellow" looked overmatched! #GBvsATL #PITvsNE #SB51 #SuperBowl51 #ATLvsNE #theAftermath

Where do you start as both the "Fight 4 Lamar" and "Fight 4 George" ended in beat downs as both the Atlanta Falcons and Boston Patriots made their case as the best in "A QB Driven League" for the 2K16 NFL Season.

The Dirty Birds were all over the "Pack" as it was over by halftime with Atlanta leading with a convincing 24-0 lead at the break. Then it was All-World WR Julio Jones not even a minute into the 3rd frame taking a crossing route some 73 yards making it 31-0 and game set match. Jones and NFL M.V.P. to be Matty Ice Ryan went IMAX Theater on the "Pack" but it was that Falcons "D"!

Yes Dirty Birds lead man Dan Quinn has put his stamp all over that "D" and it looks like the Seattle Seahawks from 2012. Man Press/Bump and Run Coverage on the outside with Red Jersey Collectors getting after the QB. That side of the Wilson pigskin if they perform up to snuff will win the Dirty Birds the Chip but it will be a tall order.

Turning over to the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots it was over maybe when Stiller Gang lost its star RB Le'Veon Bell to that Groin Injury. Seeing how the game played out one will never know but we know this...the Pats were balling!

Pats QB Tom Brady was like a Brain Surgeon at John Hopkins not missing anything as he sliced up that Steelers Zone Coverage for a 36-17 win. Yes Zone Coverage with no rush that is 7 on 7 for Brady and the boys.

The Pats "D" also played well and they will have their hands full against what will probably be the best offense they will face this season outside of facing Tom and his bunch in practice. Pats WR Chris Hogan did damage but they might not have big names but the Pats skilled-guys can play with anyone.

Now we get the two best in Sunday Football dba 17-Week Trek down in Harris County Texas for all the marbles as the Pats will go "One for the Thumb" and the Dirty Birds try to get one for the new swank Mercedes Benz Stadium dba the Big S600 V12 as that opens up this fall...

Stay tuned for more Big Bowl 51 Coverage...

This is what many NFL Pundits had drawn up when the "Fight 4 Lamar" started but many of those same pundits had the surging Pittsburgh Steelers losing to the Miami Dolphins and for sure the Kansas City Chiefs.

Now the plot thickens as those same Steelers come through the front door in the Northeast for Sunday Date Night with the Boston Patriots and that man again...QB Tom Brady and lead man Bill Belichiek. Steelers winner of 9 games in a row will get a Patriots Bunch that has also been on a nasty win streak as they have 8 game sin a row.

Something has to give as you have two of the best to do it in the last 12 years and both teams are eyeing a 9th Trip to the Super Bowl with Pittsburgh leading all NFL Teams with 36 Playoffs wins in totality!

(13-5, AFC North Champs)
(15-2, AFC East Champions)

Patriots 27 Steelers 16 F 


Top 6 Things to get victory

Big Ben must take care of the Wilson Pigskin and not get caught up in A.B. getting single coverage and go with #26 especially in the Red Zone...

Steelers O-Line if they do the same damage they did last week to a very good D-Line from #CheifsKingdon...lookout as Le'veon Bell will go crazy and Sparty Up you Big Ten Fools!   

#26 and who else at this point playing like Clark Kent dba Superman, Xander Cage dba Triple XXX, Mr. Incredible and last but not least Tony Starks dba Iron get it! 

That Steelers "D" led by #22 dba Mr. Gay #23 dba "M2" #94 Mr. Timmons and #92 dba Mr. Clean as the young boys are all following in #91 #50 #48 #25 #28 #79 #31 and #90...can these gentlemen closeout Brady and that dynamic Pats Offense?

D-Line and Blitz Rush must get "Pressure" leading to "Hurries" on Brady up the middle of the field...

Can "Business be Boomin" in the Northeast...I think so? 


Top 5 Things to get victory

Brady & Brady & Brady & Brady & Brady...I will say no more as we need to hear more about this dude...

Pats front 7 and their approach to that new Steelers O-Line and the "Patience" of Le'veon Bell...can Rocket Scientist Patricia stop it? 

Patriots Run Game led by the R.V. dba Legarrette Blount and Dion Lewis and James White are really good and the Steelers must deal with them in that short passing game with the R.V. in the Red Zone...can Black and Yellow stop that? 

Pats Secondary led by Twin McCourty and Malcolm Butler can they slow down all those Steelers WRs led by A.B.?

All 3 Phases and the Pats will excersise this better than most...

Winner: #HereWeGo 27 #Patriots 23 F 

It feels and looks like that Steelers Train cannot be stopped no matter who is front of them. I might sound biased but this Steelers Team "D" has been impressive and that Run Game is special...Killer B's shall prevail including Steelers PK Boswell and take take that NFL Analysts and you know who the Bluedude is talking about not name dropping!

Packers @ Falcons as "A QB Driven League" in the "Fight 4 George" goes A-ROG versus NFL M.V.P. Matty ICE in the Dirty Derrty!...Can the PACKERS all banged up go into the Big Bird Cage 404 and get a "W"?...Will the Dirty Birds with Uncle Mo on their side finally close the deal and get to the Big Bowl for a shot at a Parade Route for the Ages? #GBvsATL #GoPackGo #RiseUp #Fight4George #GeorgeHalasTrophy #NFCChampionshipGame

It doesn't get any better than this as I think we have four of the top 5 teams playing on Sunday January 22nd, 2K17 not named Dallas Cowboys. And this is not taking any shots as I thought the Cowboys were going to H-Town for Big Bowl 51 no matter what as they just had that feel and that look but that's why they play the games.

Moving forward we have the Green Bay Packers led by "Every body's All-Pro QB" Aaron Rodgers dba A-Rog going up against the newly-crowned NFL M.V.P. in Matty Ice Ryan from the Atlanta Falcons. Mind you this neither one of these QBs play Defense and that is the side of the Wilson pigskin this game and the other game will be won on and that's my story and I am sticking to it!

Let's get to the Top 5 Things both teams need to do to get victory in the Georgia Dome dba Big Bird Cage:

(12-6, NFC North Champs)
(12-5, NFC South Champs)

Packers 32 Falcons 33 F


Top 5 Things to get victory...

A-Rog must be A-Rog but he will need two of the three names Cobb, Nelson or Adams playing and playing all out...

Packers Run Game as former Stanford Standout and Dallas, TX Native Ty Montgomery has to be bigger than big not an "Out of Body Experience" but keep that Falcons front honest...

Keep A-Rog clean in the pocket and contain Falcons #1 Red Jersey Collector Vic Beasley from Dabo Swinney U...that would be the mighty Clemson Tigers   

Packers "D" must contain both Falcons RBs talking Jersey Numbers #24 and #26 and if that isn't clear enough Devonte Freeman and Tevin Coleman and that would be Lighting and more Lightning not Thunder...

Last but not least if Green Bay can win the Kicking Game might come down to the 3rd Phase for the Packer to head to Houston in this one...


Top 5 Things to get victory

Matty Ice has a plethora of Weapons and they are 100% including the dynamic one in WR "J2" dba Julio Jones...but Matty Ice still has top be the M.V.P. in this game however that plays out...

Coleman and Freeman are as dynamic a two-headed monster as you will see can the Packers Backers and Back End stay with these dudes?

Falcons Secondary when A-Rog moves the pocket can they still shut down that "Pack" Passing game?

Turnover Battle and "Turnovers" might the only way to slow down the Falcons Offense...can the Falcons win that battle? 

#RiseUp Nation will come to play and will be huge and the Packers must play sound from start to finish to keep them good Southern Folk in dem seats...yes I said in dem seats!  

Winners: #GoPackGo 27 #RiseUp 30 F

As much as I like A-Rog I just think Matty Ice with all those weapons around him and a better "D" and Hole Field Advantage will pull through with a last-minute FG...   

Spurs 118 Cavaliers 115 F/OT..."Logo Watch" going #NBAonABC Prime Time saw K.L. from #SpursFamilia drop a game-high 41 as #TeamPOPS > #TeamLUE with King JAMES and KYRIE dropping 29 each taking that "L" for the "Land"! #SASvsCLE #SpursFan #Believeland #LogOWatch #NBAonABC @KawhiLeonard @KingJames @KyrieIrving

The San Antonio Spurs and Cleveland Cavaliers might have been an early showcase to what NBA Heads might see in June depending on who you talk to. Yes there is a small contingent from that group believing but when you have Gregg Popovich as your lead man anything is possible!

A nip and tuck affair that went back and forth all game long was a 58-57 Cavs lead at the break. It was Spurs Star Kawhi Leonard who led the way for #SpursFamilia with a game-high 41 points on 30 shots. He hit some clutch ones but the Spurs need to get more touches for Mr. Mid-Range and the smoothest shooting "Big" in the "Logo" in former Seagoville, TX H.S. Star by way of Hookem'  Horns in LaMarcus "L-Train" Aldridge.

L-Train had 16 points and grabbed a dozen boards on just 14 shots and that has to change with the "Spaniard" out in Spain National Team Star Pau Gasol. Spurs Rook Dejounte Murray had 14 points on 7 of 10 from the field showing signs as he has stepped ahead on that Spurs Depth Chart  in front of Danny Green.  

The Cavs had their chances as both King James (29 pts 7 assts 6 rebs) and Kyrie (29 pts 9 asst) had monster games. Those numbers though were not as impactful as they look as it was the old adage "Not how many points you scored...but when did you get those points"! King James did hit the game-tying three late but missed the potential game-winning one as time expired in regulation.  

Both Tristan Thomspon and the "Lake Oswego Monster" dba Kevin Lover had double-doubles but they just didn't make the play to seal the win! San Antonio hit 10 money balls to the Cavs thirteen as Cleveland led in turnovers 18 to 13 and that is the tell tell signs of taking an "L" especially playing in front of the home folks.

#TeamPops moves to 34-9 as #TeamLue falls to the "Land" is by far still the best team in the East...   

Blazers 127 Celtics 123 F/OT...Rip City Duo DAME and C.J. > C's Pocket Point God the I.T. Guy as "The ONLY Game in Town" outlasts the Green Team on "Fight 4 Lamar" Weekend in Foxborough!..."Logo Watch" in Bean Town the Night before Foxborough is "Lit" with Steelers vs Patriots! #PORvsBOS #RipCity #GreenTeam #LogoWatch @Dame_Lillard @CJMcCollum @Isaiah_Thomas

On the eve of that colossal match up between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Boston Patriots the "Only Game in Town" dba Rip City Blazers took on the C's dba Boston Celtics. After the intros and an extra frame its was the little guys on the hardwood in this one that did major damage as expected.

Blazers Combo Guard and Engineer (Graduate of Lehigh University PA in Engineering) C.J. McCollum and East Bay Native Dame Lillard of Three Stripes Scooby Doos gave the C's the Saturday Night Fever with John and Olivia nowhere in sight!

Rip City wins 127-123 in Overtime but not after CJ goes for a team-high 35 points (25 of those in 1st half) and Dame with "12 Bars" nets 28 points waiting on seven tables as the C's knew they would be a problem and had no answers.

The C's called on their I.T. Guy dba "Pocket Point God" Isaiah Thomas to keep the C's close and in the contest and he did with a game-high 41 points but on 28 shot attempts. The difference in the game was Extras" playing in a starring role in Blazers "Big" Meyers Leonard (17 points on 4-4 3pt FG) and C's Terry Rozier (15 points on 3-6 3pt FG) as they both kept their teams afloat playing stellar off the pine.

The Blazers win but nit after Rozier sank a 27-footer in regulation with 8 seconds remaining to tie the game up at 113-113. It was just too much Dame and C.J. in the end as Rip City moves to 19-27 while the C's fall to 26-17...

Bulls 93 Hawks 102 F...The "West Side Story Report" as the Highlight Factory was everything and then some as the Bulls "EXTRAS" saves a complete embarrassment! #CHIvsATL #BullsNation #ATLHawks #NBACentralAction #NBASoutheastAction #WestSIdeStoryReport

The Chicago Bulls must have been waiting for Sunday's Green Bay Packers/Atlanta Falcons Game with a Tailgate Ticket. The Hawks using all that #RiseUp Energy the Dirty Birds 404 have created and the buzz through the city went in on Chi-City Pro Hoops for 102-93 win and it wasn't that close.

The Hawks led 36-13 after one as though Matty Ice and those two Falcons dynamic RBs were on the Hardwood. Then led 65-36 at the break. Bulls lead man Fred Hoiberg (all but done as a Bulls head coach) made no adjustments after one and after the break as the Bulls Extras went in full effect after three with the Bulls down 87-56 after three.

The Bulls Bench Mob 3.0 made a furious comeback going on a 33-4 run in the 4th getting to within five before the Hawks pout the game away. Haws PG "Dennis the Menace" Schroder led Atlanta and all scorers with a game-high 25 points adding six helpers.

Jimmy Butler led Chicago with 19 points as the Bench Mob was led by Jerian Grant's dozen with both Bobby Portis and Paul Zisper adding ten apiece. Chicago falls to 21-23 with Atlanta moving to 25-18 firmly in the Playoff Picture...

NBA East All-Star Starters as "Logo Watch" is doing the "LeBRON'S" going heavy the "LAND" dba #Believeland with LeBron and Kyrie leading the pack and the "Lake Oswego Monster" starring as an Extra!...the "Greek Freak" makes his presence felt with the Fans, Players and Coaches!...What about PG-13 from #GolDwagger did he make the cut? The Bluedude's East "Extras" dba Reinforcements led by Pocket Point God Isaiah Thomas from the Green Team! @NBAAllStarGame #EastAllStarStarters #Cavs #WestSideStoryReport #FearTheDeer #WeTheNorth

The NBA East All-Star Starters were announced yesterday and there is an interesting mix as we have 4 players making the Top 5 and all will be starters for the very first time in an NBA All-Star Game. Yes we can call them the "LeBrons" as all five starters are Nike Basketball!

Looking closer at it is the East Starters comprise of the top 5 of 25 players in the "Logo" with King James reigning as the #1 dude on that list. He will be joined by his "Partner in Crime" wearing the new-look Kyrie 3 dba Uncle Drew.  

The East "Extras" dba East Reinforcements will be a tough call but that squad will and should be led by Celts Pocket Point God Isaiah Thomas from Tacoma, Washington by way of the U-Dub Huskies.  Let's get to the Starter and then to the 7 Reserves:


PG Kyrie Irving dba Uncle Drew #Believeland

SG Jimmy Butler dba Jimmy Buckets #WestSideStoryReport

SG DeMar DeRozan dba "D2 from Compton" #TeamDrakeDrizzy

SF LeBron James dba King James #Believeland

SF Giannis Antetokounmpo dba Greek Freak #FearTheDeer


PG Isaiah Thomas dba the Celts I.T. Guy #Cs
SF Paul George dba PG-13 #GoldSwagger
C Joel Embiid dba Dream Shake 2.0 #SeventySixers
PG Kyle Lowry dba K.L. of #WeTheNorth
PF Kevin Love dba Lake Oswego Monster #Believeland
PG John Wall dba Wall-Star #WizKidsDC 
PF Kristaps Porzingis @KPorzee #KnicksVHS


360 Degrees

The East All-Star Starters wearing all Nike or Jordan Brand will star in this one as the LeBron's...  

Wade County and 'Melo both left off as the East takes a turn for the youth movement...

Can make a case for Kemba Walker from #BuzzCity but not in front of anyone on the above list...

Isaiah Thomas deserved to be a starter but he is the #1 Extra...

Embiid has brought Philly back and he is arguably the #3 Big in the game...

Porzingis must be on the list with his talent and the future in the "Logo" at Forward... 

NBA West All-Star Starters as "Logo Watch" goes 5-Star!...Did @RussWest44 make it as a STarter as all he does is go Triple-Double?...How many Warriors made the starting 5?..My West All-Star EXTRAS trying to get a Lead Role talking West All-Stars Reserves! @NBAAllStarGame #WestAllStarStarters #DubNation #SpurWars #StateBirdOfLouisiana #ClutchCity

The votes were tallied for the 2016-17 NBA All-Star game and to many there were no real surprises but one. O.K.C. Thunder Point God and perennial All-Star Russell Westbrook was not named a starter and that is a real shock.

Now the new system they used where fans count for 50% of the vote and players/coaches count for 25% apiece it still didn't settle the real issue of a player having by far the best year of anyone not starting in the All-Star Game.
