Argentina captain Lionel Messi was delighted with his side's display as they destroyed Paraguay 6-1 to advance to the Copa America final.
CONCEPCION, Chile -- Lionel Messi has not scored from open play for Argentina in a competitive game in more than a year. That's 945 minutes, since his second goal against Nigeria back in the final group game of the World Cup.

What's more, if you include friendlies but discount the two goals he scored in a 7-0 pummeling of Hong Kong -- ranked 164 by FIFA -- in October of last year, then the streak is even longer, surpassing 1,200 minutes. That's more than 13 games, more than a third of a club season.

That kind of barren streak ought to be an issue for any striker, let alone a guy with a collection of Ballons d'Or who has averaged more than a goal a game for Barcelona for the past seven years.

But does Messi care? Does his boss Tata Martino care? Do Argentina fans, from Ushuaia to Iguazu, care?

Not at all. Not when he turns in the kind of performance we witnessed during the Albiceleste's 6-1 Copa America semifinal dismantling of Paraguay. Messi assisted on three goals and was involved in the other three. That's what history will record. But, in fact, his impact was much greater than that.

"A guy like Leo ... well, not a guy like Leo, but Leo alone, because he's one of a kind, he knows how to do what is necessary based on the game and what the game needs," said Martino after the game. "He doesn't need to score to be happy. He's not concerned by his lack of goals."

For old-school basketball fans, it sort of reminded you of how Wilt Chamberlain, after leading the league in scoring year after year, decided one season that he would focus on passing and lead it in assists instead.

Just because, you know, he could.

The score suggests it was a walkover with Argentina dominating a far inferior Paraguay, but in fact this game was trickier than it looked for Martino's side. The ingredients for an upset -- fueled by the kind of implosion we've seen before from Argentina -- were there on a frigid night.

As predicted, there were far more Argentines than Paraguayans in the crowd, but there were even more Chileans. And there was no doubt whom they wanted to see La Roja play in the final. (It wasn't Messi and co.)

Ezequiel Garay was unavailable for Argentina, which meant that Martin Demichelis, at 34, lined up alongside Nicolas Otamendi, breaking up what had been one of the better partnerships of the Copa America.

Then there was the elephant in the room: Brazilian referee Sandro Ricci. He was the man who took charge of the Chile vs. Uruguay quarterfinal and sent off Edinson Cavani. In a tournament marked by conspiracy theories and accusations of "home cooking" this was definitely an issue and nobody needed to be reminded that Messi, Sergio Aguero and Javier Mascherano were one booking away from missing the final against Chile.


Though he did not score, Lionel Messi was at his decisive best vs. Paraguay.
And when Ricci flashed two yellow cards to two Argentine players in the space of a minute inside the first 15 minutes, there were murmurs. The cautions didn't go to Messi or Aguero or Mascherano, but the rather more replaceable Marcos Rojo and Lucas Biglia. Yet still the question hung in the air: was Ricci going to be that referee?

Ultimately, no, he wasn't. Two minutes after the second card, Rojo himself steadied Argentine nerves, bringing down Messi's exquisitely flighted free kick before beating Justo Villar (on his 38th birthday, no less.)

Paraguay soon suffered another setback as Derlis Gonzalez, the exciting, young wide man who scored vs. Brazil, got hurt and was replaced by Raul Bobadilla. Barely 60 seconds later, Argentina were two up. Pablo Zabaleta found Messi, who conjured up an inch-perfect through ball for Javier Pastore. El Flaco collected it with composure and buried it with elegance, but, again, it was Messi who made it happen.

Bad news was coming in twos for Paraguay: After the second goal, a second injury to one of Ramon Diaz's key ingredients meant Roque Santa Cruz limped off and on came Lucas Barrios.

Argentina kept creating but, just before the half, Pastore was beaten to a header, the ball fell to Barrios and Paraguay clawed one back. There were shades of the group game, when Paraguay stormed back to draw after being 2-0 down, a comeback that was led by none other than Barrios.

Fear? What fear? Not with Messi in this sort of form.

Less than two minutes after the restart, it was 3-1 as Biglia and Messi combined to set up Pastore, who pushed it over for Di Maria to score.

In the 52nd minute, Messi went ethereal. He streaked past Victor Caceres and danced around Pablo Aguilar. Then, with Paulo Da Silva's large frame bearing down on him he somehow managed to poke the ball under him and re-emerged on the other side, just in time to dish a perfect pass for Pastore. His finish was deflected by Villar, but Di Maria was there to knock the ball home.

Game over.

You know that thing Cristiano Ronaldo does after scoring? "Calma, eu estou aqui!" -- "Relax, I'm here." Messi might as well have done just that after creating the two goals that made it 3-1 and 4-1.

The fifth and sixth belonged to Aguero and the man who replaced him, Gonzalo Higuain, but still Messi -- and the threat of Messi -- played a part in both. CONMEBOL named him Man of the Match, just as they've done in four of the five games this tournament.

And how could they not? Messi had run the midfield and dictated the play the way his old club teammate Xavi did in his pomp. With Barcelona, we've grown accustomed to Messi's usual shtick, lining up wide right and then cutting inside, running at defenders and either shooting or laying it off. It's as familiar as the old John Stockton-Karl Malone pick-and-roll was to NBA fans. You know what's coming, you just can't defend it.

This was different. Here, it was Messi floating inside and back, often behind Pastore, and spreading play from there. Against Colombia he did it with those blistering accelerations, the cartoonish power-ups that usually leave defenders with two options: foul or look foolish.

On Tuesday, it was "pass first," both the kind delivered into space, where the teammate doesn't even need to break stride or, with the help of Biglia and Pastore, the type that gives rise to an intricate web designed to pull opponents out of position.

It's another weapon in Messi's arsenal, a Plan B to which to turn. And it was also -- perhaps unwittingly -- a response to some of the critics. Despite all their big names up front, Argentina had managed just four goals in four games before this game. Never mind the fact that, by some margin, they had created more chances than any other team.

You might have thought that Messi's response would be to try even harder to score, to force things, to demand his place on the score sheet. Nope, nothing like that. He was more than happy to turn provider. Not because of some sense of altruism but simply because -- as Martino said -- it was the best way to win.

"In this context, the statistics are meaningless. A given level of inequality can arise from processes which free marketeers would think benign, such as differences in choices over work and savings or the emergence of superstars, as in Nozick's famous Wilt Chamberlain example.

The filthiest people in the world 11 People Who Claim To Have the Most Sexual Partners In History
written by Sam Greenspan

This isn't a list of the people who've actually had the most sexual partners in history. I'm sure that list includes Roman emperors, Casanova, Persian kings, Shane from The L-Word and Bill Clinton. This list only contains the people who've actually thrown out an approximate number. So it mostly includes actors, singers, porn stars... and, of course, Wilt.

It's also heavily male, highly suspect, and (let's hope) not-at-all aspirational.

Here are the 11 people who say they've had sex with the most people in history.

Cap'n.
Hugh Hefner, ~1,000. You know a list of perverts is gonna get weird when Hugh Hefner comes in last.

Simon Cowell, Dennis Rodman and Jack Nicholson, ~2,000 each. All three of these guys has claimed to have slept with 2,000 partners. (In Jack's case, it's other people making the claim; obviously Simon and Dennis are saying it about themselves.)

With these numbers, there's an outside chance that there are a few women who've been with all three. Although the odds are she didn't get Chinatown/Cuckoo's Nest-era Jack, Pistons-era Rodman AND second season of Idol-era Simon. I'm thinking it's probably more like blu blocker sunglasses-era Jack, Apprentice-era Rodman and creepy boy band scout-era Simon.

Julio Iglesias, ~3,000. If Anna Kournikova didn't exist, Enrique could've doubled that up. And if women weren't lying when they say sense of humor is the most important quality in a guy, Gabriel could've too.

Ron Jeremy, ~4,000. Ron Jeremy's one of two porn stars on the list, and one of the few porn stars who actually throws a number out there. (I couldn't find any female porn stars' numbers.) Also, once about seven or eight years ago, when I was living in the Hollywood area, I was at a grocery store around midnight on a Tuesday and Ron Jeremy stumbled in and bought three disposable cameras and an apple. In other words: He's still adding to his tally. (Or doing a series of still lifes?)

Gene Simmons, ~4,600. I'm not exactly sure why, but this one manages to feel like the grossest on the list.

Charlie Sheen, ~5,000. This brings up a debate: Does it count toward your lifetime tally if you pay for it? I believe Charlie Sheen's the only one on this list who's openly talked about paying for sex. (Although Hugh Hefner's "wives" are on salary. And the porn stars were paid for sex.) Also, does it count if you're probably combining a mix of your sexual experiences and the sexual experiences of your eponymous tv character?


Handsome young Warren Beatty.
Warren Beatty, ~12,775. This comes from his unauthorized 2010 biography, Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America. The author estimated that Beatty was such a sex symbol that he had sex with someone new every single day of his entire single life -- from when he lost his virginity at age 20 until he married Annette Bening at 55.

That's 35 years at 365 women per year (unauthorized biographers always forget things like "leap years" and "fact checking") -- which equals 12,775. I'm thinking that estimate is pretty high. Then again, even I was seduced into buying a Dick Tracy shirt as a kid -- so maybe Warren Beatty does have hypnotic charisma?

John Holmes, ~14,000. Holmes was in at least 2,200 pornos, and estimated that between those and his generally sexy social life he had 14,000 partners. (Well, actually 13,895.) A pornography historian -- how does that look on LinkedIn? -- estimates it was really more like 3,000. He IS the only person on this list to die from an STD, though... so, um, credibility?

Wilt Chamberlain, ~20,000. This is the most famous number on the list. In Wilt's 1991 autobiography, A View From Above, he claimed to have been with 20,000 different women -- all of whom were single at the time and none of whom got pregnant. That was based on an average of 1.2 women per day, every day, for his entire life. The number seems unbelievable -- but so do all of his NBA records, and there's documentation on those. He averaged 45.8 points per game in his NBA career. One season he averaged 48.53 minutes per game. Those numbers seem unbreakable and unrealistic today, too.

Fidel Castro, ~35,000. In a documentary about Castro, a Cuban official in his inner circle claims he had sex with 35,000 women. (If there had been a documentary about Kim Jong-Il, he probably would've claimed he had sex with 755 million. But I assume the only camera in North Korea is a VHS-C camcorder and they ran out of tapes back in 2003.)

This would put Castro at about two sexual partners per day for five decades. I'm not even sure if there's been that much sex in The Castro in that amount of time.

The Fokkens Twins, ~177,500 each.



Our only ladies on the list are two of the oldest living members of the world's oldest profession. Louise and Martine Fokkens are 70-year-old twins who were both prostitutes in Amsterdam's red light district for 50 years. They claim they had sex with 355,000 men combined in their run, or about 177,500 each. That roughly comes out to 10 men a day each (assuming they took two weeks of vacation every year).

Yep... seems about right.

Lakers’ pick of D’Angelo Russell could pay off in big way

This wasn’t counting down the final seconds of a Lakers championship win against the hated Boston Celtics. It wasn’t living or dying with a last-second shot by Kobe Bryant or frantically watching Magic Johnson’s baby hook float through the hot, muggy air of Boston Garden so many years ago. But after agonizing through two of the worst seasons in franchise history the past two seasons and nervously looking ahead to an uncertain future, Lakers fans had every reason to sweat out the final seconds before the Purple and Gold made its most pivotal draft pick in decades. • Photos: Lakers get their (point) man, D’Angelo Russell “We want Russell, we want Russell, we want Russell,” a throng of them shouted Thursday from Tom’s Urban restaurant across the street from Staples Center at L.A. Live. It was clear their preference was dynamic Ohio State guard DeAngelo Russell, a slick, athletic 6-foot-5 combination of shooting and passing ability. Rather than Duke center Jahlil Okafor, who had been connected to the Lakers ever since the Minnesota Timberwolves locked in on Kentucky big man Karl-Anthony Towns. As far as the fans were concerned, anyway, the choice was easy. • Video: Watch as Russell is introduced as Lakers pick And as NBA commissioner Adam Silver approached a podium 3,000 miles away in Brooklyn, New York, he could barely get out Russell’s name before a 150 or so fans blew the roof off a restaurant just a few steps away from the arena he will soon call home. It wasn’t another championship banner rising above the rafters at Staples Center. But right now, the Lakers and their frustrated fans will settle for adding a piece of the puzzle that might just lead to the next one. • Photos: Scott, Kupchak react to drafting Russell For the first night in years, Lakers fans had something to be happy about. “Yes, we got our guy,” shouted 31-year-old fan Omar Juarez from East L.A. A few feet away, 22-year-old Semone Fetermon breathed a sigh of relief. “That was who I wanted,” Fetermon said. “That’s the guy I’ve wanted all along.” But like all of Lakers Nation, he had to wait out an anxious process in which the Lakers’ front office debated drafting Russell and his enormous backcourt playmaking ability or going the more traditional route by selecting Duke center Jahlil Okafor. #AD_text{ font-size: 11px; color: #999999; } Armed with their highest pick in decades, it was almost guaranteed the Lakers would end up with a potential future All-Star. And with nearly a wide-open roster to work with, no matter who they decided on would immediately become a key contributor and one of the cornerstones on which they will build around. The question was whether they’d remain true to their history of constructing title-contending rosters around a dominant big man — this is a franchise that’s used Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Shaquille O’Neal and Pau Gasol to patrol the middle on championship clubs — or follow the recent NBA trend of building around long-range shooting, dynamic playmaking guards. Since being awarded the second pick in the draft last month, it seemed more likely they would gamble that the low-post offensive wizardry of Okafor would give them their latest dominant big man. But as the weeks and days pulled them closer to making their most important decision in years, Russell kept growing and growing and growing on them. In the end, his ability to control a game as an effortless scorer and gifted passer — coupled with mounting concerns about Okafor’s defensive shortcomings — were too much too pass up. And in a league that’s becoming more reliant on dominant guard play and 3-point shooting, by the time their pick arrived Thursday, Russell was the clear choice. “You can go back and forth and clearly that’s a discussion or a debate you can have for a couple of hours,” Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said. “You look around this building and you see Chamberlain and you see Jabbar and you see Shaquille, those are three pretty good centers. “And there was a center available that we did not select. So, and then there’s also Jerry West, and Gail Goodrich and Magic Johnson. You can debate the whole topic.” Based on the reaction at Tom’s Urban, it was a decision that made their fans ecstatic. “He’s got star potential. He’s got an ‘it’ factor,” Juarez said. “This is Los Angeles. The Lakers are about star power. And DeAngelo has that kind of potential.” And by going small with Russell, perhaps the Lakers tipped their hand a bit as far as what might be waiting in free agency next month. All of a sudden, a backcourt of Russell and emerging second-year guard Jordan Clarkson must look pretty good to potential free agent bigs around the league. Throw in second-year forward Julius Randle, who has dropped 20 pounds and is reportedly wowing Lakers brass with his summer work, and the Lakers have an enticing young core to attract veteran stars. Did I mention they could have more than $20 million to spend this summer? And even more next summer when Kobe Bryant’s contract comes off the books and the salary cap takes a significant bump up when the new TV contract kicks in? Even before the draft started Thursday, there was talk the Lakers sat atop the wish list of Portland power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, a free agent who reportedly told the Blazers he will not return. Could an Aldridge/Lakers marriage be in the making? On a night the Lakers when the Lakers went small, it was easy to dream big. Source: http://www.dailynews.com/

The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast was an NBC television special show hosted by entertainer Dean Martin from 1974 to 1984. For a series of 54 specials and shows, Martin would periodically "roast" a celebrity. These roasts were patterned after the roasts held at the New York Friars' Club. The format would have the celebrity guest seated on a dais, and one by one the guest of honor was affectionately chided or insulted about his career by his fellow celebrity friends.

Basketball was invented in December 1891 by the Canadian clergyman, educator, and physician James Naismith. Naismith introduced the game when we was an instructor at the Young Men's Christian Association Training School (now Springfield College) in Springfield, Massachusetts. At the request of his superior, Dr. Luther H. Gulick, he organized a vigorous recreation suitable for indoor winter play. The game involved elements of American football, soccer, and hockey, and the first ball used was a soccer ball. Teams had nine players, and the goals were wooden peach baskets affixed to the walls. By 1897-1898, teams of five became standard. The game rapidly spread nationwide and to Canada and other parts of the world, played by both women and men; it also became a popular informal outdoor game. U.S. servicemen in World War II (1939-1945) popularized the sport in many other countries.

A number of U.S. colleges adopted the game between about 1893 and 1895. In 1934 the first college games were staged in New York City's Madison Square Garden, and college basketball began to attract heightened interest. By the 1950s basketball had become a major college sport, thus paving the way for a growth of interest in professional basketball.

The first pro league, the National Basketball League, was formed in 1898 to protect players from exploitation and to promote a less rough game. This league only lasted five years before disbanding; its demise spawned a number of loosely organized leagues throughout the northeastern United States. One of the first and greatest pro teams was the Original Celtics, organized about 1915 in New York City. They played as many as 150 games a season and dominated basketball until 1936. The Harlem Globetrotters, founded in 1927, a notable exhibition team, specializes in amusing court antics and expert ball handling.

In 1949 two subsequent professional leagues, the National Basketball League (formed in 1937) and the Basketball Association of America (1946) merged to create the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Boston Celtics, led by their center Bill Russell, dominated the NBA from the late 1950s through the 1960s. By the 1960s, pro teams from coast to coast played before crowds of many millions annually. Wilt Chamberlain, a center for the Los Angeles Lakers, was another leading player during the era, and his battles with Russell were eagerly anticipated. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, also a center, came to prominence during the 1970s. Jabbar perfected his famed "sky hook" shot while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers and dominated the opposition.

The NBA suffered a drop in popularity during the late 1970s, but was resuscitated, principally through the growing popularity of its most prominent players. Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics, and Magic Johnson of the Los Angeles Lakers are credited with injecting excitement into the league in the 1980s through their superior skills and decade-long rivalry. During the late 1980s Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls rose to stardom and helped the Bulls dominate the NBA during the early 1990s. A new generation of basketball stars, including Shaquille O'Neal of the Orlando Magic and Larry Johnson of the Charlotte Hornets, have sustained the NBA's growth in popularity.

In 1959 a Basketball Hall of Fame was founded in Springfield, Massachusetts. Its rosters include the names of great players, coaches, referees, and people who have contributed significantly to the development of the game.

Bill Russell > jordan. Wilt Chamberlain > jordan. Larry Bird > jordan. Magic Johnson > jordan. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar > jordan. Jordan was David Stern's cashcow in the 90's. The Detroit Pistons of the 80's annihilated jordan. It was then that David Stern commanded the nba refs to call phantom fouls on whoever defended jordan. Wake up. Don't believe the hype. Fuck jordan. Jordan doesn't care for us, even as we beat each other up for his overpriced shoes made in sweatshops.
