Lil Wayne adds to his legacy with Tha Carter V

 One of the greatest rappers of our generation, Dwayne Carter, has given us plenty of classic songs, albums and mixtapes. His new album "The Carter V" adds to his legacy.  The Grammy Award rapper who has been called, “The Greatest Rapper Alive”, now has another number one album on the charts. This isn’t anything new for the legendary spitter who gave us hit like “No Ceilings”, “Carter II”, “Carter III” and “Da Drought 3” to name a few, but some thought the rapper wasn’t capable of delivering … [Continue Reading...]

The worst & best Halloween costumes I’ve seen

The worst Halloween costume I have ever seen is a banana costume. When I was in high school I saw both a student dressed up as a banana and one dressed up as a banana with the peels split down. It was not funny to me until I sat down to hang out with my friend at a table. When I looked up from my food, I saw the student dressed up like a banana with the peels split down running across the school yard getting chased by a student dressed as a gorilla. Not only that, the gorilla was roaring … [Continue Reading...]

Is Venom as bad as Critics Say?

Venom (2018) (Sony Pictures) Black Panther Spider-Man.. I mean.. Venom, released October 5th, 2018 to a slaughter of critic scores in the cine-plex. At the time of this writing, Venom sits at a 32% on Rotten Tomatoes which makes it officially a certified load of crap, but does that translate across all boards? Could viewers disagree with critics? Rhetorical; the fact of the matter is that fans and the average viewer alike agree that Venom is a smash hit and here are my reasons for the … [Continue Reading...]

My Visit to the Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room

Recently, I visited the Sokiku Nakatani Tea Room here on campus. I was initially surprised AS I thought it would just be the small space of the tea room but that space was actually on display in a larger room. It reminded me of a stage because of the raised platform and it being on display for the rest of the room. The one idea I would associate my visit with is Time. When you first enter and sit down, you are given time to quiet your mind. We sat in silence, to let the rest of the world and … [Continue Reading...]

The Final G.O.A.T.

There are some people that say Michael Jordan (MJ) is the best player ever to play the game of basketball. There is, however, a player that sport writers have been comparing to Jordan: Kobe Bryant, the shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers. Sports writers have broken down these two players by three things: their ability to make their team better, scoring ability, and ability to make big shots for their team in key situations. Both players have played with their share of all-star teammates … [Continue Reading...]

This is one of my favorite Jay-Z lines of all time. It’s so damn hard and so true. Well kind of true. Okay, not really true at all. But I still love this line. This blog is not about rap though, it’s about basketball and numbers. I love basketball-reference.com. It gives me all the knowledge I want about basketball on one website.
