Hell Month

02/23/2009 06:53 PM

So it has been two months since the start of 2009. And almost five weeks (or even four) before the end of the sophomore year. 

However, the challenges are just starting for me, as this month will be just nothing but more than what term for an ordinary college peep folk know. I'm talking about a so-called "hell month" (not just a hell week, okay?).

The Pre-take: 2009 NBA All-Star Weekend Side Events

So, Jameer is out, and I should feel "damn sorry" for this young point guard whom were about to made his debut alongside "Superman" Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis at the NBA's  mid-season showcase in Phoenix, Arizona.

This time, their home-game winning streak snapped; following that 23-0 record at the Quicken Loans Arena, and also, the 27 straight home games dating back to the playoffs. (They only lost to the three-time playoff rivals Washington Wizards; speaking of the which, where the hell are they? sans Arenas; they just had their downfall at the standings, too.)

Anyway, let's go to the side events. Perhaps I noted some of them since I was lacking time to post this. It's Kevin Durant, who will lead the parade for the sophomores; while Michael Beasly and company takes the shot for the first-year players. Here are the lineups courtesy of
