Shaq to Kobe: Where's your Messiah Now?

Wassup, Y'all!

You know I'm not one to say I told you so, but didn't I? With the NBA steaming toward the post season (which always seems anti-climatic after March Madness - can you believe those Elite Eight games??) a quick look at the playoff standings show Miami (Shaq) as the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference and a heartbeat away from the best record in the league and the Lakers (Kobe) shut out from a playoff berth and fading fast. To quote my girl Pheebs - hahahaha...

Just like that naysayer Dathan in The Ten Commandments, who despite every miracle Moses presided over, was always talking smack to the crowd asking 'Where's your Messiah nooooow?', Kid Kobe has to be coming to grips with the fact he may never sniff the NBA Finals again let alone another championship trophy. Just like in the days when Chicago was ringing up championships like single scoops at Baskin Robbins in the summertime, even Michael Jordan recognized the value of Scotty Pippen. As in most cases, be careful what you wish for.

Pretty Clear Who's Carrying Who

Sinfully - caught an opening day showing of Sin City and that joint was off the hook! Ultra violent, smart, funny, stylish graphic novel look and a bevy of sexy hookers - what more can a homeboy ask for? Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson clock in with their standard 9+ Daamn Meter Ratings, but the sleeper in the movie was sexy shorty Carla Gugino who spends her first three minutes on screen in nothing but a thong giving new meaning to the phrase 'hottie with a body'. Woooooo. I'm giving it 3.5 Spinners y'all and proffer the following glossy for your close inspection.

Extremely Overdressed

Old Carla's a loooong way away from Spy Kids in this one. Gonna be a lot of freeze framing going on when the Sin City DVD drops...
