Who Will Draymond "Rufus R. Freight Train" Green Hurt In Game 5? PDF Print E-mail
ImageDraymond "Rufus R. Freight Train" Green and the Golden State Warriors have been all over the news this past year. After the Warriors' record-breaking 73-9 season, the media has not been able to get enough of the Warriors. Green has been the chosen spokesman for the team. He gives them "energy." He chastises Steph Curry and Klay Thompson when they don't play well. He was voted an NBA All-Star and played H-O-R-S-E with Kevin Hart. His Beats commercial is on repeat during the playoffs. Then reality hit. He got hammered in the playoffs by OKC's Stephen Adams and Enes Kanter. To compensate for his lack of size and talent he resorted to dirty tactics.
Ignore Gabelli; Weatherford International Is Insolvent PDF Print E-mail
The rout in oil prices turned the former U.S. energy boom into a nightmare. Firms like Weatherford International (NYSE:WFT) appear to be the most vulnerable if oil prices stay lower for longer. In March the company shored up its capital base with a $630 million equity raise. After dismal Q1 results we now know why the company was so eager to raise equity. Revenue and EBITDA fell Q/Q by 21% and 57%, respectively. The company also experienced negative free cash flow as it had trouble collecting on receivables and inventory. Nonetheless, in a recent Barron's article Gabelli & Co. suggested WFT could rise to $13, more than double its current price of $5.28.
Will Bismack Biyombo Dominate Tristan Thompson Tonight Too? PDF Print E-mail
ImageThe playoffs are where legends are made and unmade. The Toronto Raptors' Bismack Biyongo has put the league on notice that he is "a problem." While certain guys would rather team up with Lebron, Biyongo has gone at The Kang's neck. He challenged LeBron and deterred him from coming inside the paint. He pinned a LeBron alley-oop attempt at the rim; he got called for a foul but it sent a message to The Kang -- "Not in my house!" In between stymieing The Kang and tossing Kevin Love's weak stuff Biyombo was absolutely manhandling Cavs forward Tristan Thompson. 
Brown V. Board of Ed: "Shock Exchange" Ensures Prince Edward County, VA Will Never Be Forgotten PDF Print E-mail

Source: Moton Museum, Farmville VA

May 17th marked the 62nd anniversary of the landmark Brown v. Board of Education decision which integrated public schools in the U.S. The Brown decision was several decades in the making. It took the efforts of several lawyers, lawmakers and brave students and parents to stand up against segregated schools. The red herring in Brown was that states were supposed to integrate "with all due speed." It also took several years to actually integrate schools after the decision was rendered. The other misnomer is that the Brown decision was one case; it was actually five cases. One of the cases was Davis v. Prince Edward County, VA -- the county where I grew up. 

Will Warriors Protect Steph Curry By Having Iquodala Guard Westbrook? PDF Print E-mail

ImageRussell Westbrook struggled in the first half of Game 1 of the WFC against the Warriors. He had three points in the first half, but hung 24 on Golden State in the second. He blew past Klay Thompson for finishes at the rim and cooked Steph Curry from mid-range. He put jumpers in Steph's eye and single-handedly willed the Thunder back from a 13 point deficit. Steph wanted none of that action, prompting one journalist to ponder if the warriors would "protect" Steph by putting Andre Iguodala on Russ:

Video: Steph Curry Claps Back At LeBron PDF Print E-mail

Steph Curry was named unanimous MVP of the NBA this year, the first ever to do it. When you think of dominant players -- Jordan, Wilt, Bird, Magic, Shaq, LeBron -- none ever one unanimous MVPs. For some reason Steph Curry isn't the first player to come to mind, yet he is the only one to ever accomplish the feat. Agreed, awards are subjective and can at times be a popularity contest. When asked about this year's voting, LeBron James said something to effect that "The MVP is not necessarily the best player in the L." Of course, Steph had to clap back:

The Blacks Dragged Rachel Dolezal. Now She Has A Book Deal. PDF Print E-mail
ImageCivil Rights activist Rachel Dolezal created a firestorm last year when she was accused of "passing as black." Dolezal was the President of the NAACP in Spokane WA when her biological parents called her out for misrepresenting her true heritage. She was interviewed by KXLY Channel 4 in Spokane and thoroughly embarrassed for lying on camera that a black man was her father. Dolezal later resigned from the NAACP and was released from teaching Africana Studies at Eastern Washington University. The African American community dragged Dolezal at every turn, and the more they harped the more publicity Dolezal received. She has appeared on the Melissa Harris Perry Show, Today Show, and the BBC, amongst others. She has now parlayed her notoriety into a book deal with independent publisher BenBella Books.
