yesterday afternoon Allen "The Answer" Iverson announced his retirement to one time ESPN writer Stephen A. Smith. What should of been a great moment for the answer was just a sad one. smith said while Iverson was telling him about his retirement he broke down several times. To be honest it is sad Allen statistically is one of the greatest players to play the game, But what goes to show you statistics aren't everything, His career is somewhat of a disappointment he never won a NBA world championship. He Reached It once while playing for the Philadelphia 76ers in 2001 where he was defeated by the Los Angeles Lakers. When talking about greatest of all time, the first thing people say is how many rings do you have not how many points did you score a game. This to me was Allen's downfall he didnt evolve like Jordon or Kobe, they figured out you can win 10 scoring championships but that's not gonna get you a ring you have to get your other players involved you cant do everything by yourself. Jordon and Kobe Figured that out and evolved there game and thats what makes them great, they figured something out and tailored there game to winning a ring not scoring 32 points a night. Iverson on the other hand never wanted to do that. He always had an fuck everybody, I can do it myself attitude. which is not the best attitude to have in a team sports. This is why coaches and players don't like him and thats why he isn't on a team right now! No one wants a teammate who jacks up shots even when your wide open for the shot. but thats the kind of player he his the "im gonna get mine first" player which get you allot of points but doesn't stack up the championships. In the End the Answer couldn't find the right answer to the question every NBA player has. How do I win a NBA World Championship?

Allot of stories have been coming out about rappers getting in situations that REAL gangsters find them selfs in real gangster situations, but they never do what they say there gonna do in there rap lyrics. one came to light about the rapper plies who is a self proclaimed gangter or goon what ever he wants to call himself. So Cal rap artiest 40 Clocc ran up on him and how the story was told by jamie foxx, Plies ran into the bathroom hiding from him while jamie foxx was left outside alone. so jamie foxx asked why did 40 clocc and his crew run up on the video set and 40 responded because plies raps about how he is a thug and how he is real such a "Goon" and "Gangster" so 40 and his crew wanted to see if they are really what he rap abouts and obviously his not! must people think lil wayne is some kind of drug lord and some kind of killer but if you know lil wayne and his career you would know he was signed and has been rapping for cash money records at age 11. I dont know how many drug deals and murders he committed since birth until he turned 11 most likely none. he raps about how he was shot but his only gun shot wound wasnt committed in a drug deal gone wrong it was done by himself with his own pistol! rick ross is another rapper so called drug kingpin taking his name from the infamous Los Angeles drug kingpin Freeway Ricky Ross. The rapper rick ross Claims to has dealt numerous amount of drugs before his platinum rapping days but evidence came out that before he was a Rapper he was actually a Correctional officer for the state of Florida where his alleged drug dealings took place! so which leads you to believe one thing and one of Jay-Z verses explains it perfect!
They're all actors
Lookin at themselves in the mirror backwards
Can't even face themselves, don't fear no rappers
They're all weirdos, DeNiros in practice
So don't believe everything your earlobe captures; it's mostly backwards
Unless it happens to be as accurate as me
And everything said in song you happen to see
Then, actually, believe half of what you see
None of what you hear, even if it's spat by me
And with that said, I will kill niggaz dead
None of what you hear, even if it's spat by me
And with that said, I will kill nigga dead

So allot of rap heads have this argument and i cant deny i always do to. who is the greatest rapper of all time 2 Pac or Biggie Smalls??? and im a west coast guy so of coarse i always say Pac! But to be honest Pacs flows cant even compare to biggies. biggie had more rhymes and flows then pac there is no denying that but when people say Pac was the greatest rapper they say it because the words he spoke about the things he stood for thats what made him great! word for word, rhyme for rhyme, flow for flow biggie was no joke and would beat pac in a rap battle. but the content of Pac's lyrics and his work ethic can never be matched that is why we still hear new Pac music every year because he lived in the studio. Thats why he is the greatest of all time!

So beanie Sigel has been getting at jigga for leaving him and other artist to go start his new label Roc Nation. beanie has thrown a couple disses towards jigga. jigga hasnt yet responded on wax to Sigel but has addressed it saying "Beanie Sigel, to be honest and you can look it up, just to be honest…was driving two Bentleys. I don’t know how Its impossible to drive two cars at the same time. With his momma in the sticks, selling 800,000. I don’t know what more you can do for somebody. What people choose to do when they obtain that type of success, at some point you gotta look in the mirror and look at yourself" then he later added "Beanie Sigel had a record deal, a record label and a clothing line…and never went platinum. Ever. I don’t know in the history of rap has anyone done so much with so little. So, I don’t know what more can you do for a person at that point. A record deal – that’s normal. A record label and a clothing line. If that’s not pushing the person…shit" which is very true beanie has never gone platinum and he did have a lot of shit for somebody who never went platinum. but beanie later responded that jay never gave him any of that he went out there and hustled that up he went out there and did all those things and that jay had nothing to do with any of that. must people are saying beanie is getting at jay because now his broke and needs money and attention, which might be true but if you look at who was all with jay before none of those poeple like or get a long with him so some thing must be up! me and allot of people all agree that beanie would eat up jay in a rap battle but that remains to be seen. personally i want jay to make a diss so we can hear this battle for real!!

Pacquiao vs Cotto was a good fight all around for Pacquiao! He whooped Miguel Cotto's ass and made mad money. The estimated pay-per view draw was 1.25 million which translates into $70 million in revenue and that doesnt even count oversees revenue! after pac man and cotto pay all the bills they might walk away with a whole lot of money pacquiao gets $22 million and cotto will collect $12 million! but of coarse everyone wants to know when Manny Pacquiao will fight Floyd mayweather and trust me fight fans this fight is gonna happen there is just to much money to be made and money mayweather is not gonna want to pass that up!
so 50's album "before i self destruct" projected numbers came out yesterday and it looks pretty bad for him. past albums first week sales were enormous 2007's Curtis (695,000), 2003’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (872,000), and 2005’s The Massacre (1.5 million). this time his projected sales are 160,000 the worst of his career! to me personally 50 did this to himself he burned to many bridges tryin to diss everyone instead of making good music. after clowning on rick ross's group triple c's low number sales i know people are clowning on 50 now. even tho the album leaked 50 shold of sold more albums then that! i like the album its cool im not hating on him but i guess everyone is just tired of his arrogance.
