Betting on Wherever Lebron James May Land
Betting on the NBA isn’t over quite yet. July 1st marks the start of the free agency so let’s have a looks at some betting odds released on where some NBA stars will play next season. This year’s list is littered with perennial NBA All-Stars, including Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, Amare Stoudemire and Carlos Boozer. However, it doesn’t have a genius to find out that the crown jewel of this year’s free agency class is non other then LeBron James.
Let’s face it, athletes of LeBron’s stature make more money in endorsements they do with their salaries. That’s where in fact the New York Knicks enter the race. Having been maneuvering their roster and salary cap for a few years now, the Knicks franchise thinks they have what it takes to bring King James to the Big Apple. Going to New York wouldn’t be best for James’ immediate title hopes. Outside of power forward David Lee, the talent on the Knicks roster is pretty ordinary.
The Nets have a fresh Russian playboy owner Mikhail Prokhorov, a brand new head coach in the likeable Avery Johnson, but the same old roster that might only muster up 12 wins last season. To include insult to injury, the Nets are drafting third in Thursday’s NBA Draft despite having the NBA’s 1xbet record. They do involve some good young pieces in Brook Lopez and Devin Harris, but despite James, they would employ a difficult time making the playoffs – can’t see LeBron being too stoked up about that. However, with the Nets moving to Brooklyn eventually, James would have the ability to cash-in on all off that New York marketing money touched on earlier.
The 2006 Football World Cup supplies a timely opportunity to consider the wider social and political implications of sport in general and football specifically, with particular mention of the racial dimension to sporting competition. Now of course, Dr Frances Cress-Welsing in her much acclaimed book, ‘The Isis Papers’ (1991), provided an in-depth psychological analysis of the racial/sexual symbolism of a variety of sports. Similarly, Abdullah Nazir Uhuru in his excellent book ‘Killing “Me” $oftly’ (2005), provides an insightful analysis of football, drawing upon Cress-Welsing’s work. The goal of the essay is to build upon these works and also to assist Afrikans to understand that, life is politics and everything in life is political, therefore sport features a politicised and racialised dimension to it, just like all other designs of men and women activity.
According to this definition; Caucasians have been waging a racial war against Afrikans for over three thousand years (and we should not forget their cousins the Arabs). This war manifests itself in different ways, for example the physical war is not merely confined to overt physical violence but also includes acts made to directly attack the physical health of Afrikans e.g. the utilization of medicines banned from used in ‘the West’ in Afrika, the complete HIV/AIDS scenario and the deliberate and concerted attempts to cut back Afrikan fertility worldwide, which it forms a part, being examples of European aggression.
Among the main tactics in war is what is referred to as ‘Psych Ops’ or Psychological Operations. It has been well established that propaganda is crucial in warfare, even during overt military conflict, and the creation and dissemination of propaganda is an essential part of psychological operations. The objective of psychological operations is always to weaken or destroy the enemy’s will to fight and resist, or crucially – particularly regarding Afrikans – convince the enemy that actually there’s no war happening and that his/her goals and aspirations coincide with and have been in harmony with this of the propagandist.
