See Gil is showing us that it's bigger than Basketball with him!! That's why I respect him so much!! He does his thing in the city and I want him to remain with the Wiz so, get it done Ernie!!
LOS ANGELES — Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas said last night that — while he still plans on opting out this summer to sign a max deal — he is willing to take a pay cut so the team can re-sign Antawn Jamison, who will be an unrestricted free agent.
"Just sign Antawn first, and I'll take the pay cut," Arenas said. "That way, we can keep the team intact. I want him to be a done deal first, then I'll go after that."
Arenas has one year left on his $65 million deal, but he previously said he would opt out to sign a six-year deal that would pay roughly $14 million a year. Jamison is making $16.36 million this season.
The Wizards traditionally manage to avoid taking a hit from the NBA luxury tax, which penalizes teams whose payroll exceeds the predetermined tax level. Teams pay a dollar for each dollar their payroll surpasses the luxury tax.
But to re-sign both Arenas and Jamison, Washington likely would have to take a hit. Team president Ernie Grunfeld has said the Wizards will do whatever they need to do to re-sign both of those players.
Team president Ernie Grunfeld has said the team will do whatever it needs to do to re-sign both players, but Arenas offered his solution last night.
"We've been together six of my seven years, so we understand," Arenas said. "We know what's at jeopardy, so I told them give what he wants, and I'll take the pay cut. I know he's part of my success. I'm part of his success. We have this 1-2 combination, and it's effective in this league. We know we make each other better, and someone has to sacrifice. This might be one of last contracts, and hopefully I'll get another one. At the end of the day, if I don't, I know I did the right thing."
Jamison, who will turn 32 next season, is averaging 21.6 points and 10.4 rebounds. Arenas, who averaged 22.4 points and 5.9 rebounds in eight games this season before undergoing surgery on his left knee, said signing for as many years as possible is greater motivation for him than dollars if the Wizards can re-sign Jamison.

Umm probably not!! But what about live?? Envision an ideal place to live...With a design length of 4,500 feet, a width of 750 feet, and a height of 350 feet, Freedom Ship would be more than 4 times longer than the Queen Mary, taller than the highest buildings in most American cities and topped with a runway that can handle jets...Freedom Ship would not be a cruise ship, it is proposed to be a unique place to live, work, retire, vacation, or visit. The proposed voyage would continuously circle the globe, covering most of the world's coastal regions. Its large fleet of commuter aircraft and hydrofoils would ferry residents and visitors to and from shore. The airport on the ship's top deck would serve private and small commercial aircraft (up to about 40 passengers each). The proposed vessel's superstructure, rising twenty-five stories above its broad main deck, would house residential space, a library, schools, and a first-class hospital in addition to retail and wholesale shops, banks, hotels, restaurants, entertainment facilities, casinos, offices, warehouses, and light manufacturing and assembly enterprises.
18,000 living units, with prices in the range of $180,000 to $2.5 million, including a small number of premium suites currently priced up to $44 million.
3,000 commercial units in a similar price range
2,400 time-share units
10,000 hotel units
A World Class Casino
A ferryboat transportation system that provides departures every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day, to 3 or more local cities giving ship residents access to the local neighborhood and up to 30,000 land-based residents a chance to spend a day on the ship.
A World-Class Medical Facility practicing Western and Eastern medicine as well as preventive and anti-aging medicine.
A School System that gives the students a chance to take a field trip into a different Country each week for academic purposes or to compete with local schools in numerous sporting events. For example; The Freedom Ship High School Soccer team plays a Paris High School team this week at home and an Italian team next week in Italy, while the Freedom Ship High School Band presents a New Orleans Jazz musical at a concert hall in London.
An International Trade Center that gives on-board companies and shops the opportunity to show and sell their products in a different Country each week.
More than 100 acres of outdoor Park, Recreation, Exercise and Community space for the enjoyment of residents and visitors.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in fron t of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightl y. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “yes.”
The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.
“Now,” said the professor as the laughter subsided, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—God, your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.
The sand i s everything else—the small stuff. “If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.
“Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first—the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.”
One of the students r aised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. “I’m glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.”
Ok Ok. I know some of you that try to keep up with every trend seen on TV are probably just getting around to Armand de Brignac aka Ace of Spades but the ballers have moved from the Gold bottle to the Pink bottle!! Mind you the Rose has been out forever but here's your official stamp so add $300 more to that Gold bottle and get with the Rose'. Better yet just drink what you like cause Ace of Spades is disgusting!! The Rose is ok but Moet Nectar Imperial Rose is way better and $550 cheaper!! Perrier Jouet Rose is my personal fav.
P.S. This pic is from the "Heart of the City" tour which kicked off in Miami last night. I heard the performances were sick!! I mean The Dream, MJB, and Hov!! Can't wait.... 2 more Sundays before the D.C. show!! Unless somebody offers me a crazy price for my tickets then I will miss it. lol

It looks as if the colorful trend continues!! Which is good for me because I love colors and glad to see high end designers like Balenciaga making colorful kicks!! These are a good look. They just don't look comfortable at all!!
Here’s what Perrier head of communications Olivier Cavil said
“We are going to sell these box-sets to 100 people around the world who will have a chance to customize their own champagne, the ultimate luxury…Each buyer will come to Epernay (in eastern France) for a one-on-one meeting with our cellar master Herve Deschamps, and will personally add a ‘liqueur’ to personalize the bottles,”.
Buyers will also be offered a storage nest in Perrier-Jouet’s cellars, to hold the bottles for another eight months…
Here is the 1st video from Star Trek's Teyanna Taylor. You probably remember Teyanna from that sick bday party she had on MTV's "Super Sweet 16". This young girl has a mean swag!! Can't say the same for the video!! I am going to chalk it up to it being her 1st video. She is talented so I'm sure it will only get better.

"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did"
When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but
merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on
this sentence..... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace
of God will not protect you.'
And no I didn't forward this to at least 7 people. However I did write it here for you all to read so hopefully I won't have 99 years of bad luck, lose the love of my life or any of the other BS!! LMAO
Also don't forget to check out "The Single Life with Claudia Jordan" every Monday on Sirius 106!!
The Best Friend
I can feel his glance
Enhanced from across the room
It’s hard to deny
But every time he passes by
His arm brushes mine
I fear him crossing the line
Becoming riskier everytime
Intertwining casual flirting
With serious trying
To make me sway
It’s becoming more and more
I pray for the Lord
To give me strength
For he is not thinking
Of the consequence
What happens when
My man finds out
Cause that’s his best friend
And though he’s never
Actually uttered the words
And so I’ve learned
This isn’t gonna turn out nice
There’s gonna be strife
That’s his boy for life
It could possibly
Come back to bite me
The best friend
May try to spite me
Turn it all around on me
Make my love believe
It is I that deceives
Out of mere jealousy
Or perhaps that I
Am simply lying
To break them up
A friendship of years
I have fears
But I feel him hanging around
Just a lil bit longer
His advances coming on
Just a lil bit stronger
To further ponder
I’m going to say something
Another question comes to mind……say you are interested in someone that your close friend USED to date, is he/she off limits because your friend used to date them. Is there a time protocol of how long they needed to be broken up before all is fair in love and war?
