In the NBA, there's a endless amount of great guards and forwards playing the game right now. Yet the big men that get the dirty work done seem to be extinct. Are there any legitimate elite centers in the NBA besides Dwight Howard? Not many others. To me centers always sort of defined the game of basketball. Tall and big slam-dunkers who could get down and dirty. These centers I'm about to list off are all high-profile ballers. Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Patrick Ewing, and Shaquille O'Neal. Everyone knows these guys. My only possible theory as to why centers are waning is because of injuries. The past couple years we've seen players like Yao Ming, Greg Oden, Andrew Bynum. and Jermaine O'Neal constantly staying off-court or just have been shut down because of this. Some viewers find centers boring and unappealing, but I get a pure kick out of them working their butt off.
A change in music style is always risky. For Outkast, the switch from mostly rap vocals to melodic ones was perfected so well. I bought the physical copy of Stankonia from Newbury Comics last night for $9.99. Totally worth it. Outkast style of music is what I believe the perfect style of hip hop. Sharp vocals that flow well, funky beats, variety, and strong subjects. And a major plus, my favorite song of all time is included on this album, which is Ms. Jackson. If you can't tell already, this album is quite amazing. I recommend this to any fan of old-school hip hop like me.
My constant abandonment is really getting off the charts. But as of now, I HOPE to stay active on The Game Change. It's not even really that I've been busy. It's just more or less of me getting bored. Every winter I'm always turned off in the gaming mood. I guess you could say I was "hibernating." But once again, I'm adding a new feature. This time it's blogs and a gallery on sports cards collected. Card collecting? Yes. It may not fit, but I was looking forward to blog about it for a while. So I might as well take my chance with it. One last note. Make sure to follow me on Twitter @tbutt16. I'm ready to get rolling again.
