Look Who Showed Up

Look Who Showed Up

Every now and then you get that wow-this-guy-could-be-really-good performance from Lamar Odom and last night was the night. Give the Lakers credit – they played defense (12 blocked shots, Denver shot 38%) and Kobe (8 assists) passed the ball to guys who made plays (Odom 19 pts, Ariza 12 pts, Fisher 12 pts). Denver may [...]

Gasol Calls Kobe a Ball Hog….Kinda

Gasol Calls Kobe a Ball Hog….Kinda

"I wish we would take more advantage of our height and the inside game, because it's pretty effective. It's unfortunate that we don't recognize it enough," Gasol said, according to the Daily News. "It's frustrating because we lose games," Gasol said, according to the report. "I don't mind when we win, because the bottom line [...]

I Love Dahntay Jones!!

I Love Dahntay Jones!!

I never condone dirty play….unless it's directed at Kobe Bryant. Nuggets guard Dahntay Jones continues to take his cheap shots. Last night during the Nuggets Game 4 victory, he blatantly tripped Bryant as Kobe cut into the lane. Kobe went sliding into the lane and, here come the best part, there was no call! This [...]

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

Breaking News: The Magic Feel Disrespected

I told ya'll the other day that we find it really disrespectful that everybody seems to be pulling for LeBron and Kobe to get to the Finals. Every time I look at TV, it seems like that's all anybody is talking about. It's like nobody is even giving us a shot at winning this series [...]

The Cavs Take Another Beating

The Cavs Take Another Beating

“They create so many matchup problems for us,” Mo Williams said. “I know it. They know it. Everybody knows it.” Dare I say it, but is this series is over? This one reminds me of last year's finals. One team simply cannot stop the other. Mo Williams is pulling out his best Ray Allen impression [...]

Why The Olympics Are a Pain

Why The Olympics Are a Pain

One thing that's caught my attention in the conference finals (aside from the dramatic finishes and clutch shooting) is that LeBron James and Kobe Bryant are exhausted. LBJ had to be helped off the court after cramping up in Game 1. Kobe looked like he was going to pass out during last night's post game [...]

It’s Over

It’s Over

The reign as defending world champs came to a frustrating end tonight. In the end, the Magic simply had more weapons than the Celtics. Orlando played superb defense in this series. Except for tonight, they (Courtney Lee and J.J. Redick) busted their ass and wouldn't let Ray Allen beat them. They doubled team Paul Pierce [...]

Worst Possible Start

Worst Possible Start

  After crapping the bed in the first quarter, the Celtics salvaged the first half by playing halfway decent basketball in the latter part of the 2nd quarter. The Magic are shooting a scary 70% from 3-point land, while the the Celtics' offense is stagnant. The refs finally started calling fouls on the Magic and [...]

3 @ 3 Sunday, May 17, 2009 8:00 pm ET TD BankNorth Garden (Boston, MA) Here we go again, folks. For the fourth time since the core of this roster has been assembled, the Celtics are set to play for their season in a Game 7. I'll spare us all some time. From x's and [...]

4 Reasons Why The Celtics Will Win

4 Reasons Why The Celtics Will Win

Aside from all the history (Celtics 32-0 when leading a series 3-2, 17-3 in Game 7s at home), I've come up with a handful of reasons why the Celtics (2.5 pt favorites) will beat the Magic in Game 7: 1. By the 8pm tip-off, it will have been nearly three full days since these teams [...]
