Dome Pondering Import - Mark Cuban On ESPN First Take



Thank you! Thank so much Mr. Cuban! I completely agree with Mark Cuban's recent position on ESPN's First Take where he pretty much confronted all basketball "analysts" and media, specifically, the utterly ignorant and annoying, Skip Bayless for their absurd comments and statements in evaluating games and situations. 

Bayless, who has bascially earned his fame through idiotic comments that are against the grain, was publically embarrassed by Cuban for his lack of knowledge when it comes to his comments, especially his overly arrogant and shallow comments when it comes to LeBron James.

Those of us who root against the Miami Heat, have given our reasons for the anti-James position. However, overall, there is a tremendous amount of respect there. Yet, Bayless continues his idiotic comments against the newly crowned NBA Finals MVP.

Without getting too much on Bayless, there are others out there who do the same, and offer comments that are downright fickle. Anyone remember Chris Broussard claiming the Heat would dominate the next few years? Then when they were down 3-2 to the Boston Celtics, Broussard stated they needed to break the Heat up as this team will not get it done. And of course, now, he's proclaiming LeBron James is set up to win the next three years. 

Eye roll. 

And of course my favorite - all of the so-called analysts that bashed the Knicks during the Carmelo Anthony trade negotiations when the trade was in limbo stating the deal was a no-brainer. Now they are the same folks claiming that Anthony can't co-exist with Stoudemire. 

And to be honest, a lot of it is dished out by ESPN, whose analysis, feedback, and overall evluation of any subject is downright insulting, or plain annoying. These days, ESPN has become more yellow journalism than the actual "world-wide leader of sports" they claim to be.

Once again, Thank Mr. Cuban for saying what so many of us have felt for so long. And thank you for delivering the line of the year (possible new DP award?), "You have a presumption, people care what you say. They don't". 

Awesome.

1. Lt. Sayem Basad Pacha - No one will ever know what went through Pacha's head before he bear-hugged a suicide bomber the moment the vest was detonated. I can't even wrap my mind around the thought process. Whatever it is, this man is one thing - hero. And that's in the purest form. 
2. Kianoush Rostami - The earthquake that rocked the Iran/Iraq border was devastating. Yet, here is Rostami giving up his prized possession of an Olympic gold medal to raise money for the relief effort. Much respect. 
3. WWE War Games - In a more light-hearted "Up" this week (we need that from time-to-time, no?), the WWE's Survivor Series weekend was just fantastic. But man, so much props to everyone who put work into Saturday's NXT show, as well as the return of War Games. That match was so awesome.

The Pondering 10 - Dream Pro Wrestling Matches

Just like any sport, movie, or form of entertainment, pro wrestling has produced many memorable characters, moments, and eras that fans hold dearly. The memories, debates and discussions that have formed over the years have caused all of us to at one time fantasize about our dream scenarios. We all have them. And yes, we all have our dream matches, even if they will not ever happen. The following Pondering 10 list takes a look at my top pro wrestling dream matches, with of course, all of the participants being in their prime.

1. Aly Raisman - Following the bravery of Mckayla Maroney and others in the #MeToo campaign, Raisman has stepped forward as the charges pile up for sexual abuse by former USA Gymnastics doctor, Larry Nassar. By the way, shame on USA Gymnastics for continuing to allow this culture. I shudder to think what else lies in the world of Gymnastics. 
2. New York Times - In a world where journalism - real journalism - is becoming harder and harder to find, The Times continues to break stories left and right, and did so again this week with the Louis CK piece. I think we all are tired of journalism wrapped in identity politics, and yes, even "fake news". 
3. Kristaps Porzingis - Obviously, you all know how much I love the Unicorn. But seriously, how enjoyable is he to watch? And barring injury, he can only get better. Melo, who?
