New Years Resolution, Physical Fitness and Financial Fitness

by Miguel Lloyd

On this show we will change your circumstance for 2011 and beyond as we focus on physical fitness and financial fitness. As many times as we have talked about it year to year, its time to get serious with both of these subjects.

Diabetes, heart disease and strokes are killing us daily. We can’t just blame heredity, we need to look in the mirror. Although, grandma and them died of these dreaded diseases, they also had help from the cigarettes they smoked, liquor they drank the pork and lard they cooked with. Now that we know this, why do we continue to consume these products that contribute to our demise? We will have fitness experts, Melinda Henry and Darrell Lockett to give us some great guidance and tips for the new year.

Also, we will have Keith Reed of the blog, Keith Reed’s Money Corner. He will talk financial fitness in the new year. As bad as we may think it is now, inflation is right on the financial horizon. Its time to get financially fit, so that you can handle that impending change in the fiscal landscape.

We will also look at the Good, Bad and Ugly of 2010. Our phone lines, twitter feed and facebook page is wide open, waiting on you! Give us your feedback. We’ll talk to you on Wednesday at 7pm EST.

Lebron James: Don’t hate the player, hate the game

by Miguel Lloyd

Well finally the day has come. LB23 returns to the city that made him who he is. To the place where his dreams of playing in the NBA were achieved because of the wonderful people of Cleveland and the surrounding areas. The place where he was on his way to multiple championships and a legacy that Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, and the logo, Jerry West himself would envy. The place where he should be thankful that they embraced him in such a way that only a fool would leave. Really? Is that what Cleveland was to Lebron?

The truth is that on a national level, Lebron did a lot more for Cleveland than they did for him. Truth is that Lebron was one of the first players that actually drew a national TV audience as a high schooler. Before Lebron, it was not normal to have a national primetime TV game featuring A prep star that was not a McDonald’s All-American game. I remember watching Lebron in that game with the tape over his tattoos in the Irish jersey and I immediately agreed with the scouts. He was the real deal. The only thing he missed (which is what he still misses), is a consistent jump shot. Other than that, he was the complete package. He was a redefining package. A wing player with the raw skill of Jordan, with the combination of size and passing ability of Magic. Other than that tangible jump shot, he lacked one intangible thing he missed that Jordan and Magic had and Kobe has is a killer instinct. This is the attitude that Jordan would use to motivate him to drop 50 on the Knicks, or destroy the Pistons, because they thought they had rules that effectively stopped him. Lebron’s well managed demeanor is the reason the people of Cleveland and the media feel they can push him around.

Lets not forget, that in 1996, without nearly the fan far, Kobe Bryant shunned the Charlotte Hornets, for the Lakers. Who was he to make such a demand? He was the 13th pick and largely unknown. Kobe was well groomed and we didn’t even know it. He went to a team where he was questioned as a starter and was the percieved “2nd” option for the first half of his career. He was the son of a former NBA player who was groomed to develop his own image, brand and legacy. Although, Lebron and his business “team”, have done an excellent job of managing his brand, they still need some work when it comes to his image and legacy. Funny thing is that it is because of his loyalty to the very people who “loath” him now, that he took this step back.

Truth is, Cleveland is not managed like franchises like the Lakers, Yankees, Patriots, Cowboys or Celtics. Prior to Lebron, they never truly had a franchise that raised above the level or respectability of the Atlanta Hawks, Toronto Blue Jays or Cincinnati Bengals. Teams that have periods of excellence but mostly middle of the road to bottom dwellers year to year. Truly not since Jim Brown, had the nation been so focused on the city of Cleveland sports. What they got from LB23 is 7 years of relevance, not to mention years of profitability for their ownership group. What does he get for his service? Total disrespect from the fans and the ownership of the team.

In spite of all that, all you hear are the media and the people of Cleveland, questioning his character and loyalty. Honestly, I expect that from the drunk fans in the nose-bleed seats, but not sensible fans of any reasonable level of intelligence. With that being said, the fact that Lebron has been relatively subdued in his response to all of this experience is to be commended. No wonder though that LB23 is making his list and checking it twice of all the people who have disrespected him.

Whether they win or lose tonight is relatively insignificant. I’m just glad it will be over.

Tonights show on Life full circle -The Evolution of Hip Hop…The Good, The Bad and the Ugly

by Miguel Lloyd

On this show we will discuss the evolution of Hip Hop. if you are wondering why Lil’ Wayne, Kanye West, Nicki MInaj and the rest of today stars are successful despite questionable content, you need not look farther than many of your own music collections. While the current 30 and 40 somethings were playing checkers, tecmo bowl and doll babies, a lot of their parents were pumping the P-Funk All-Stars, Rick James, Marvin Gaye and Rufus & Chaka in our ears. Music filled with highly sexual content and drug abuse. Well now these 30 and 40 somethings have teenage kids who they have raised on Jay-Z, Biggie Smalls, Tupac, Lil’ Kim and Ice Cube, and don’t see anything wrong with it. They are “Keeping it Real”. Well on this show, we are going to keep it real and break it down. Are you being judgmental about a culture that you helped create? We’ll talk about it!

This show will be fun and enlightening! Please listen and tell a friend!
