Exclamation The Konex Curse

Yes, this does deserve its own thread, you will see why:

Konex [Creates Thread]: "Does Kobe’s ownership of Redd continue tonight"…Kobe has owned Redd in the past whenever they went head to head

Result: Redd drops 45 on Kobe and Bucks win in LA. First time ever Kobe loses an individual matchup to Redd

Konex [Creates Thread]: "Lakers are the only team in the league to not lose three in a row"

Result: The Lakers lose the next three games

Konex [Creates Thread]: "Lakers are 30-19 with 1.7 differential"…discusses how Lakers have been exteremly lucky to get a couple bounces their way and win close games.

Result: Lakers go on a 6 game skid where almost every game is lost in the final 3 minutes.

Konex [Creates Thread during a game]: "Blazers @ Lakers (Who is this Smush guy)" referring to Smush playing outstanding. Lakers were up by 5 at that point.

Result: Smush scores one or two points afterwards, Lakers lose the 5 pt lead and end up losing the game.

Konex [Creates Thread during a game]: “Why are the Jazz down 19 against Atlanta in the 3rd?”

Result: Jazz come back and eventually win the game

Konex [Creates Thread]: “Kobe is pacing himself for the Xmas Game” discusses how Miami should watch out and how hes been watching Kobe for 10+ years and knows what hes about to do

Result: Wade lights Kobe up on X-mas day…utterly humiliates him. Kobe scores 16 points while Wade puts up 41 pts and 11 assts 4 blks 4 stls in a decisive victory

Konex [Creates Thread]: “Jazz season = OVER”…talks about how Booze is out 4-5 weeks and that Nuggets will take the division.

Result: Jazz win 6 of their next 7. Nuggets drop three straight.

Konex [Creates Thread]: “KB24 Revenge Roadie gm 2: Lakers @ Pacers”…says he is cautiaosuly optimistic and that Kobe will pace himself and wont go all out unless needed”

Result: Lakers were doing well fighting the curse but it was to much as the Pacers went on something like 24-7 run in the 4th and won the game

Konex [Creates Thread]: “Celts/Twolves: Celts up 4 with 3 mins to go”…this was during the losing streak for Boston

Result: Poor Celts, lost on a buzzer beating GW by former Celtics player Ricky Davis

Konex [Creates Thread during a game]: “Cavs/Pacers: 21-6 *****slap by the Cavs to start”

Result: Pacers come back, Cavs go through a 4th qtr meltdown and lose the ball game.

Konex [Creates Thread]: "Celtics will end their streak against Lakers" or something along those lines. Celtics were on big losing streak, while Lakers have been dropping games to team they should beat.

Result: This time the Lakers were actually helped out. Not only did the Lakers beat the Celtics, Kobe Bryant (A LAKER) would receive MVP chants in the Garden.

Konex [Creates Thread during a Game]: "Lakers @ Wolves". Talks about the 10 pt lead Lakers have but how this game could be blown away.

Result: Twolves would immediately go on run to bring the game within 2 or 3 points. Lakers would go on to lose that game.

Konex [Creates Thread]: "Spurs will overtake the Suns". Spurs were on a big winning streak and he predicted that they will overtake the Suns for second seed.

Result: Two or three games later, Spurs end winning streak with a loss to low level teams in bucks and celtics (a team Duncan never lost to).

Konex [Creates Thread]: "LOL @ the Hornets choking away their season". Exact quote: Up 2 with ball. Turnover on the inbounds when Clipps had to foul. Let EB get a wide open dunk to tie it with 9 secs left.

Result: Clipprs lose all momentum...Hornets would go on to win the game decisively in OT.

Konex [Creates Thread]: "Lakers will not make the playoffs"

Result:Lakers clinch playoff berth two days later

-------------------------------

2007-2008 season


Konex [Creates Thread]:Post things more competitive than the Suns/T-Wolves tonight.

Result: The 2-15 Minnesota team goes on to beat one of the hottest/best teams in the NBA in the Phx Suns.

Konex [Creates Thread during a game]: " Larry Hughes looks great so far (Cavs @ Cats)"…Exact quote: 12 points off the bench at half. Bron was shooting jumpers pre-game so he looks close to coming back. I think the Cavs will be ok...

Result: After going 5 of 7 in the first half, Hughes goes 1 of 10 in the second half and Cavs lose to the Bobcats. Who knows when Lebron will return now.

Konex [Creates Thread during a game]:"Grizz choke job in progress..." Now the Grizz were up all game but SA made a huge run in the 4th and the defending champions were down 1 with 41 secs to go.

Result: After fighting the curse and actually tying the score up with a couple seconds to go, Rudy Gay hits a buzzer beater to win the game for the Grizz.

Konex [Creates Thread during a game]: "Grizz/Sixers ending - Will Rudy hit another GW?" Rudy Gay has been clutch all season.

Result: Rudy ends up missing a crucial free throw right after the thread is made and fouls out, while Iguodala ends up hitting the GW.

Konex [Posts in GameThread]:"The Kings are chokers"..Kings led big all game but Orlando made a huge comeback in the 4th Q.

Result:Kings have made a deal with the devil and with the power of the curse, they were able to hold off Orlando and win the game.

Konex [Creates Thread]: "Lakers lead the WC with a 6.8 point differential"…talks about how he made a thread last season about Lakers small point differential and too look at the difference between this season and last

Result: Next game, Bynum goes down, Lakers beat one of the worst teams in Memphis by 1 point. Lakers now have to go through the toughest portion of the schedule without him


Konex [Creates Thread]: " Andrew Bynum is leading the NBA in FG%"…posts the stats for Bynum leading the league in FG%

Result: Next morning, Bynum is out for 8 weeks.

Konex [Creates Thread]: AI is playing MVP-like ball

Result: The next game, the Nuggets play the Lakers. AI has a terrible game and injures his wrist.

Konex [Creates Thread]: "Miami doesn't play any D against Indiana tonight."

Result: Miami beats Indiana, and ends its 15-game losing streak!!!

Konex [Posts in GameThread]: "Suns are helpless against good-rebounding teams with an inside-scorer.."

Result: The Suns rally from 18 down to steal a 2 point victory against the Cavaliers with Marion hitting a clutch shot to win it (his only basket of the game)

Konex [Creates Thread during the Hawks/Celtics series]: "The Celtics wont beat the Cavs"

Result: Celtics beat the Cavs in 7 games





That’s it for now. Konex is an overall good guy but beware of the Konex Curse and its extereme consequences. It has struck many times and will do so in the future!!!

More to come…

I'm glad someone finally documented all of this... I was glad all his predictions were all related to the Lakers, but I was a little miffed when he started making predictions for the Celtics...

damn that's a lot of power konex seems to have. If I were him I'd start abusing it, making threads like:

"OT: kwajo loses massive amounts of money in the Stock Market! Gets Ugly Wife and loses Presidential Election!"

I seem to recall him making a post about Jamaal Maglore and how Portland should trade him, and then Joel Pryzbilla gets injured in a game.

You guys should turn this into a log... Didn't Konex say that the Laker would get blown away by Phoenix last year, and then changed it when the Lakers were up 3 games to 1?
