hours of sleep? and is that a good excuse for missing your company christmas party? and who eats only 6 french fries? so many questions.. but first let's tackle the games: steph and lebron were twinning last night: they both scored 42 points and they both won: it was the warriors first time back in cleveland since they won their last championship. steph says it was a little weird to play the cavs without lebron. and without the lebron, the cavs had nothin. it was a blow-out warriors beat them 129 to 105. oh and k-d didn't get testy with the fans like he did the night before when the warriors beat the hawks monday, maybe you
7:50 am
missed it.. he was on the sidelines and told a heckler to shut up: same thing he said to a mavericks fan a couple weeks ago.. well except he added two words that start wth "f" .. "f" for fined, 25 grand.maybe he's not getting enough sleep.. which is definitely not a problem for lebron james.. he looked well rested in the lakers 121-113 win over the spurs.. just like steph, lebron scored 42 points last night. he was definitely bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.. thats what my dad used to say when he got a good night's sleep. you know why he was bright eyed and bushy-tailed? cuz he got 11 hours of sleep the night before.. "and" still took a 2 and a half hour nap before the game! now lebron is famous for needing and getting a lot of sleep.. i don't know if he was faking it in this picture.. i also dont' know if he was faking it in this tweet: which he posted yesterday morning: "man i'm washed!! i went to bed at 8:30
7:51 am
last night and woke up at 7:30am. man what! i literally slept for 11 hrs. missed my company xmas holiday party and everything."do you really think he slept through the party? did he forget and this was an excuse? if you were the lakers would you be offended if would you be the lakers if you were if you were if you were the lakers if you were if you were the lakers
7:52 am
would you be offended if you're new star was like.. sorry, i'm really tired. or did he sleep through it by mistake? coudln't be bothered to set the alarm?? i set the alarm even when i nap.. naps are good.. sleepign bad for you. plus who has time to sleep for 11 hours plus a nap.. that's half the day!!! ( darya ) is there such a is there such a thing as too much of a good thing.. yes, if theyr'e french fries.. a harvard professor says you're supposed to only eat 6 french fries maximum. that's the ideal serving size.. twitter blew up! cuz who eats 6 fries? there are 75 in a large fry at macdonald's. too many fries are like a "starch bomb" in your belly..
