L.A. Lakers - Big Man In The Hand, Worth 2 In The Bush PDF Print E-mail
The Los Angeles Lakers need a big man. After the choosing second in the NBA draft, they still need a big man. Instead of choosing Jahlil Okafor - arguably the most dominant player in the draft - the L.A. got cute and drafted D'Angelo Russell. I previously stated I would date Jane Kennedy before the Lakers passed on Okafor. However, days before the draft reports began to surface that the Lakers fancied Russell. The logic was that since there were so many big men available or about to become available on the market - Demarcus Cousins, Marc Gasol, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Love - they could take Russell and scoop up a big man in free agency. "Think long ... ya think wrong, and "Big man in hand is worth 2 in the bush" are two clichés that come to mind.
Confederate Flag Removed From SC State Capitol - William Chumley Pissed! PDF Print E-mail

The Confederate flag and the hate it symbolizes have been the news ever since the senseless murder of the Charleston 9 by the coward Dylann Storm Roof.  Today Bree Newsome did what the state legislative did not have the heart to do - she took the Confederate flag down from in front of the South Carolina state house today.

Why Would Jalen Rose Mention "Bust" After D'Angelo Russell Taken #2? PDF Print E-mail

ImageThe biggest surprise of the 2015 NBA draft was that the Lakers chose D'Angelo Russell over Jahlil Okafor with the #2 pick. Some like Jay Bilas and myself thought Okafor could have gone #1. The theory is that since there are so many big men about to become available - Kevin Love, Lamarcus Aldridge, Demarcus Cousins - the Lakers didn't need to draft Okafor. In covering the draft, ESPN has a responsibility to talk the players up. In an attempt to talk up Russell, Jalen Rose mentioned the word "bust" ... Freudian slip?




I'll Date Jayne Kennedy Before Lakers Pass On Okafor PDF Print E-mail

In my dreams ...
A few weeks ago I got into a tet-a-tet on Twitter. A few Lakers fans were under some strange impression that reports of L.A. taking D'Angelo Russell ahead of Jahlil Okafor were real. Of course, I had to dash their delirium:

basketballtalk: Team execs: There’s ‘a logical case to be made’ for Lakers selecting D’Angelo Russell with No. 2 pick in NBA Draft

shockexchange:  @basketballtalk No it's not. The Lakers will take Okafor or Towns. Any other talk is simply click bait

1HenrikA: @ShockExchange As a Lakers fan, I'd prefer they take Russell. Okafor is simply a scoring center of the Jefferson, Lopez, Kanter mold.

William Chumley Was Wrong - Reverend Daniel Simmons And Charleston 9 Fought Back! PDF Print E-mail

Simmons grappled with Roof
The furor of the Confederate flag has gotten the dander up of South Carolina legislator, William Chumley. Chumley recently appeared to blame the nine victims for the massacre, saying something to the effect that instead of fighting back, they simply "Waited their turn to be shot."  However, the opposite is actually true - the Charleston 9 fought for their lives. According to survivor Polly Sheppard, Dylan Storm Roof appeared to have been intent on killing Senator Clementa Pinckney. However, when the Reverend Daniel Simmons (age 74) grappled with Roof, he unloaded on Simmons and the others: 

William Chumley - "Victims Waited Their Turn To Be Shot" PDF Print E-mail

South Carolina legislator William Chumley has his dander up over the South Carolina flag issue. Chumley has a point in that the nation's attention is misplaced. However, some of his other comments pursuant to the nine parishioners who lost their lives is downright insane: 

We're focusing on the wrong thing here. We need to be focusing on the nine families that  are living and see that this doesn't happen again. These people sat in there and waited there turn to be shot ... somebody in there with a means of self-defense could have stopped this, and we'd have less funerals than we're having.

Clementa Pinkney Is 8th U.S. Senator Assassinated PDF Print E-mail

LA Senator Huey Long
The news of the Charleston 9 who were gunned down by Dylann Storm Roof last week is still hard to come to grips with. While politicians, pundits and the media have gone off on tangents about gun control, racism and the confederate flag, what should not be lost is that South Carolina State Senator Clementa Pinckney was a member of the Charleston 9. Roof drove two hours from Columbia, SC to Charleston's Emanuel AME Church. He asked for Pinckney by name, Emanuel's pastor, and sat next to him throughout the bible study. Pinkney appeared to be Roof's original target and then turned his rage onto the other parishioners. Along with politicians like Huey Long (LA) and Robert Kennedy (MA), Pinkney is now the eighth senator to be assassinated. Senator David Ramsay, who was assassinated in 1815, also hailed from South Carolina.

Oil States International Is Worth $22 PDF Print E-mail
Oil States International (NYSE:OIS) became a pure play oil services company after spinning off its accommodations services division, Civeo Corporation (NYSE:CVEO), in May 2014. The company has three divisions - [i] Offshore Products, [ii] Completion Services and [iii] Drilling Services. Due to the decline in rig count, revenue from drilling and completion services has been in free fall. Oil States' Q1 2015 revenue of $337 million was down 28% sequentially and off 17% Y/Y. Analysts expect Q2 2015 revenue to decline over 11% sequentially to $299 million. I assumed the Q1 19.7% EBITDA margin would be maintained in Q2, which is optimistic. Read more:
Is Dylann Storm Roof Mad At Blacks Or Wall Street? PDF Print E-mail

ImageDylann Storm Roof, the 21 year old identified as the suspect killing nine African Americans in South Carolina, was apparently angry at blacks. He drove 2 hours from Columbia, SC specifically to attack the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. The attack came just nine days after officer Michael Slager was indicted for the killing of Walter Scott in Charleston. After some of the parishioners begged for their lives, Roof responded:

You rape our women and you're taking over the country. You have to go.

The last time I checked it was Wall Street that had received $450B in TARP funds, $8 trillion in zero interest loans and another $5 trillion in quantitative easing.
