FOR THE LOVE OF CUPCAKES

You remember that former Tar Heel Rashad McCants was a little odd? Very moody, always endeavoring to appear tortured. But, he stepped up big during UNC's 2005 championship run, so it's all good.

J.E. Skeets of BasketballJones.com points out that McCants, now of the Minnesota Timberwolves, has a new web page.

Timberwolves guard -- and cupcake aficionado -- Rashad McCants launched a new website over the weekend and, well, as far as NBA player sites go, it's quite professional…

Anyway, as the lovely Sonia at TWolves Blog points out, McCants venture into the seedy underbelly of The Internets is definitely worth checking out if only for the amusement and entertainment factors. A few highlights from the different sections of the site:

McCants on his tattoos: "There is nothing like a fresh tattoo. The look of it. The feel of it. Knowing that it hurt so bad, and you wanted to quit. Just like life. When all goes bad, you just wanna quit. But the moment you decide it's not so bad, that if you just take the pain everything will be fine, is the moment you realize life isn't so bad."

McCants on his YBG clothing line: "YBG is my self expression to show my struggle from where I come from to where I am now! Young black and gifted is what I am through my own eyes. Just remember the motto: Swagger is everything!!!!"

McCants on comparing himself to reading The Bible: "Once you open it up and start to read it, you find out things that you've never really seen or heard before. And I think that really describes me."

And finally, a few lines from my favorite Rashad McCants poem entitled 'Hustle and Cream':

No love, your hearts sink in mud, valentine let Cupid make stupid a drug.
Should have held those words when your vision was blurred,
Complain at dinner about the chicken that's burned.
Attorney wanna talk about money that's earned.
Even Jordan gave brothers a real lesson to learn.

Deep. All of it.
