I am a huge Penny Hardaway fan. So imagine my shock when I stumbled across this photo taken last week at the Knicks-Cavs game. You know who that is. So what does it mean? And did Nike spend 2 grand just to sit him there for the game?!

Freestyle Breakdown Episode UNO:Sorry, I had to share this...Jay-z Freestyle from Hot 97 (2006) Click links for further info...lol
I'm so independent sh.. i might buy Koch
I might not stop
Places to cop, 76 floors you can call me the Doc
Inspired by Boesky, got my chariots of fire
Everybody took shots, hit my body up, I'm tired
Build me up break me down to build me up again
They like "Hov we need you back so we can kill ya a** again"
Hov got flow, though he's no Big and Pac, but he's close
How I'm 'posed to win? They got me fighting ghosts...
Same sword the knight you they gon' good night you with
Sh.., Thats only half if they like you
That aint even the half what they might do
Dont believe me ask Michael
See Martin, see Malcolm
You See Biggie, see Pac, see success and its outcome
See Jesus, see Judas, see Caesar, see Brutus
See success is like suicide
Suicide is a suicide
If you succeed, prepare to be crucified
Media meddles, ni..as sue you, you settle
Every step you take, they remind you, you ghetto
So its tough being Bobby Brown
To be Bobby then, you gotta be Bobby now
Now the question is, "Is to have had and lost
Better than not having at [all]?"
Everybody wanna be the King then shots ring
You layin on your balcony with holes in your dream
Or you Malcolm X'd out, get distracted by screams
Everybody get your hand off my jeans!
Everybody look at you strange say you changed
Uhh! Like you work that hard to stay the same
Uhh! Game stays the same the name changes
So its best for those to not overdose on being famous
Most kings get driven so insane
That they try to hit the same vein that Kurt Cobain did
??No dangers, so shameless??
Invited to the inner sanctum of yo chambers
??Low chained em as the enemies approach??
So raise ya draw bridge and drown em in the moat
And the Spirit I'm evokin
**Mumbles ** Hold on...
Everybody screamin they want the old Hov
But the new improved Hov hit like Albert Pujols
Everybody wanna hear me talk that money like Phil Rizzuto
But my mind is on Pluto
Bills that I do fold, i now invest on
Tryna find some loopholes in the IRS
As where I used to have a few h*** I am just
Concentrating on makin a new Hov through sex
I've awaken just in time to school those putos
Tryna follow in my shoes with jewels froze
Better adhere to this text 'fore you go
Broke, spendin more than you've accrued on silly baguettes
I know silly begets, silly you'll learn on your own
At least my conscience is clear, I'm no longer steering you wrong
Aint nothing wrong with baguettes after you get a home
Take care of your home, you can go back and **Ugh!**
I'm getting courted by the bosses,
The Edgars And Doug Morris-es-es
Jimmy I's and Lyors-es its
Gotta be more than the choruses
They respecting my mind now
Just a matter of time now
Operation: Takeover Corporate
Makeover offices-es-es then takeover all of it
Please may these words be recorded
To serve as testimony that i saw it all before it
Came to fruition, sort of a premonition
Uncontrollable, hustler's ambition
Alias, SUPERSTITION, like Stevie
THE WRITINGS ON THE WALL, like my lady, right BB
Saw it all before some of yall thought I was crazy maybe
Like a fox I'm cagey, Ah Ah!
The more successful, the more stressful
The more and more I transform to Gordan Gekko
In the race to a billion got my face to the ceiling
Got my knees on the floor please Lord forgive him
Has he lost his religion, is the greed gon' get him?
He's having heaven on earth, will his wings still fit him?
I got the Forbes on my living room floor
And I'm still talkin to the poor, ni..a I want more
TIME's most influential, was impressive
'Specially since, I wasnt in the artist section
Had me with the builders and the titans
Had me right with Rupert Murdoch
Billionaire Boys and some dudes you never heard of
Word up on Madison Ave, is I'm a Cash cow
Word down on Wall Street homie, you get the cash out
IPO Hov no need for reverse merger
The boy money talk no need to converse further
The baby blue Maybach like I own Gerber
Boardroom I'm liftin ya skirt up
Please tell me you all saw Duke-Clemson last night. Please. You didn't? Well in a nutshell, Duke got destroyed by Clemson 74-47, with several monster dunks by one Trevor Booker, including the best one, shown in this post's picture and also here for my video demanding readers:

The two greatest National Anthem renditions EVER...along with a personal favorite you may not have seen....
Monday, February 02, 2009
Great Superbowl! Enjoyed all 30 minutes of the second half. I must say, Jennifer Hudson is now squarely in second place for all time renditions of the Star Bangled Banner, only being edged out by Whitney Houston. Anyone catch President Obama's short interview with Lauer before the game? That must be unprecedented, also pretty interesting that he wasn't trying to play the middle of the road on who he was picking to win, considering the entire Steelers organization basically canvassed and supported his election bid in the state of Pennsylvania, while the other team was the home state organization for his rival. No brainer, huh? Overall I thought the commercials weren't as good this year as previous years, although I thought there were some pretty notable ones, including the etrade babies with one of them singing "broken wing."
A challenge can only be made on certain reviewable calls before the two minute warning and only when a team has at least one time-out remaining in the half. When a coach decides to challenge a call, he throws a red flag onto the field, indicating the challenge to the referees. Up until the 2005 season, coaches could also signal a challenge via an electronic pager, now used only by the replay assistant.
The referee has 60 seconds to watch the instant replay of the play and decide if the original call was correct. The referee must see "incontrovertible visual evidence" for a call to be overturned. If the challenge fails, the original ruling stands and the challenging team is charged with a timeout. If the challenge overrules the previous call, the call is reversed with no loss of a timeout.
After the 2-minute warning of each half, and in overtime, reviews can only take place if the replay assistant, who sits in the press box and monitors the network broadcast of the game, determines that a play needs review; coaches may not challenge during these times. In those cases, the replay assistant will contact the referee by a specialized electronic pager with a vibrating alert.
