“…. and gold caps on his teeth” !!

    “…. and gold caps on his teeth.” – OUCH!Gangsta-gold-teeth13

    I don’t understand “mouth art” or body art and piercings in general so this story is well outside my “get it” bubble.   I certainly don’t relate to the average day in the life of an AfAm pro athlete.

    If I chronicled every report of a pro athlete involved in some altercation at “a club” it would be all I would chronicle.  They only happen on days ending in “y”.    It may surprise you that I am also NOT a participant in “the club scene”….. “gentlemen’s” or otherwise.  But having one’s gold caps stolen has to (1) hurt a lot…. and (2) repeat #1.   Getting shot in the knee can’t be “a good thing” either.

    …. and I’ve never known a “Cleanthony” either.  Is it any wonder I feel no tangential attachment to the NBA?

    Rapper – 50 Cent – is vowing to recover Celanthony’s gold caps.   Apparenty “50” has connections among NYC’s teeth thieves …. ????

    PS:  OK, I do understand “fooling around in the backseat”.




    Knicks player shot and robbed outside club in NYC

    New York Knicks forward Cleanthony Early was shot just after he left a Queens strip club early Wednesday, police sources said.Cityscapes club

    Early, a 24-year-old Bronx native, was held up by up to six thugs — at least one wearing a ski mask — after leaving CityScapes gentleman’s club on 58th Street in Maspeth with his girlfriend, law enforcement sources said.

    Early had dinner with his gal pal in SoHo before arriving at CityScapes about 1:30 a.m., sources said. They jumped into an Uber at 4:15 a.m. and began fooling around in the back seat, not paying attention to where the car was going, sources said.

    The cab drove a short distance to an industrial area, in front of 64-70 Maurice Ave., before three cars boxed the vehicle in, sources said.

    There were four to six men inside those cars and two men — one masked, one not masked — pulled Early and his girlfriend out of the car, sources said.

    One of the men demanded, “give me everything you got”including the gold caps in Early’s teeth. Early forked over the caps, cash, two gold chains with medallions and an iPhone6.

    Early was shot once in the right knee, sources said. He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital in stable condition.

    The 6-foot-8 basketball player was drafted in the second round, out of Wichita State, by the Knicks in 2014.

      Ah YES…..a hold-up in Maspeth, NY. How ODD? I once tore down a factory in Maspeth that adjoined a row house. Now that was an experience for a southern lad who had built factories, remodeled them, put in large equipment installations, etc. You ain’t negotiated until you negotiate with the lady that owns the green cedar siding house that adjoined the office and how you were going to match the siding and paint it and NOT kill her petunias.

      This factory had a shower room for the workers. It was a forging factory and the hammer operators showered before going home. They would also entertain themselves by watching the hookers ply their trade in the afternoon in the parking lot. Lolipop was a favorite. She had youngsters at home and practiced her art while the little ones were still in school. She could really “run them through” when it got close to school letting out. They had a rack of 10X binoculars up there. BUT, the night shift hookers were not so fortunate. I think that at least 3 were killed or cut or severely injured/assaulted during the 2 years that I was moving out the equipment and the demo.
      That boy done got himself into some rough neighborhood. Jimmy V’s dad realized how bad things were and he moved the family out of queens…..to a neighborhood that integrated, with while NON-Italians. He met Pam in the 7th grade and went steady until they were married after graduating from Rutgers.
      Obviously the “assaultees” were NOT Knick’s fans….per the EPSN article, they ASKED for the Caps….but I assume the Caps were not removable. SHEESH…..next thing they will be stealing is the tat’s….

        Not a world with which I have any familiarity. No word on whether 50 Cent has recovered the teeth.

      This really did not need a comments section. Wonder what old Cleananthony’s SAT score was.

      Reminds me of the old George Rogers joke, George was trying to fill in the blanks on a test and the question was “old Macdonald had a ———. George asked the lineman in front of him what the answer was and the lineman replied farm. George then asked the lineman how to spell farm and you know what is coming…….the lineman replied e i e i o.

        Sounds like a chapter from the “I’m amphibious” playbook. 🙂
        I guess “gold caps” is another must-have use for that “cost of attendance stipend”.

        I suppose. The ongoing “whats new” in urban street cred symbols is so outta my life orbit.
