This is for all the Lakers fans that wrote me on my old blog at Gee, I guess you guys were the ones who are wrong, not me. Kobe is averaging under 40% shooting in his last TWO finals appearances! Oh yeah, he lost both of those!!!!!

I said Celtics in 6 games and it looks like I might be wrong, because the Celtics should win in 5!!!

The most joy I get out of this finals series is the fact that NO ONE CAN ARGUE THAT KOBE IS AS GOOD AS MICHAEL JORDAN!!!! Kobe will have lost 2 finals series, and there's no way Jordan lets the Celtics come back from a 24-point decifit at home in a critical game 4. suck!

Limited Posting for a While

It appears that I decided to start this blog a year too soon.  I am simply too busy with my new daughter and job to post every day and break down the NBA like I originally planned.  Plus, this is an EXTREMELY critical year in our great Nation!  

I will be devoting the majority of my free time to following the 2008 Presidential campaign, which will greatly decrease the number of NBA games I watch.  I'm actually watching the GOP debate on Fox News as I write this. 

I'll still post from time to time, when something sparks my nerve, but I'll be largely dormant until next season.  

I hope everyone researches the presidential candidates, watches the debates and makes the most informed decision you possibly can.  The future of our economy and security of the USA is at stake, along with so much more!

The Nuggets Are For Real

The Nuggets took out the mighty Spurs tonight and proved they are for real.  

Iverson and Melo look good together.  Anthony Carter is doing very well as their point guard.  Camby is having another all-star type season and the combo of him and a healthy Kenyon Martin make the best defensive front line in the West.  Their bench is as strong as any in the league with Kleiza, Atkins, Najera, Nene and JR Smith.  

In fact, they are now my dark horse to win the West this year.  They can score with the best.  Defend bigs like Tim Duncan, and they are very good defensively, as they illustrated tonight.

Go Nuggets.

Perception is Reality

I’ve figured out the key to happiness, and I’ve done it by using Isiah Thomas as my model. I’ve decided that Isiah is the happiest person on the planet. Most of you might think otherwise, being that he is one of the most hated GM’s in the NBA.

He is the only GM in the NBA who had an informal press conference outside his arena, where the Knick fans issued him a pink slip. He had his starting point guard blackmail him for playing time. He lost a sexual harassment suit that cost his company 11.5 million dollars. The Knicks haven’t even sniffed .500 since Isiah took over (39 wins is the most wins they achieved in a season under his tutelage), they currently stand at 8-22. The once proud Madison Square Garden is filled with Boos and “Fire Isiah” chants, instead of the applause and roars of the crowd that used to be heard when the team was of a championship caliber.

All these reasons might lead you to believe that President/Coach Thomas is one click of the trigger away from ending his professional career, and going to live with the Amish in Pennsylvania never to be heard from again. But you would be wrong, my friend. Instead, Isiah is as confident and optimistic as ever. Read this sports illustrated article:

Delusional Isiah says he will lead the Knicks to a Championship

Here are the quotes I want to focus on:

"I believe that one day we will win a championship here," Thomas said. "And I believe a couple of these guys will be a part of that. And I believe I'll be a part of that."

"I don't necessarily just want to win a championship. I want to leave something that's going to stand for a long time. I want to leave a legacy, I want to leave tradition," Thomas said. "I want to leave an imprint, a blueprint in terms of how people play, and how they coach and how they respond when they put on the Knick uniform.

“De Plane! De Plane!”

Yes, that was Tatto from Fantasy Island. The plane has just arrived and its guest of honor is Isiah Thomas. His hallucination gets even worse when you hear him make these comments:

"I like the direction we're headed," Thomas said Friday, before his team lost to the Bobcats. "I've said this before: our future is definitely much brighter than it was when I got here four years ago. Cost-wise we're down. Talent-wise we're up. We did a good job of putting people in the seats. I think we're pretty close this year to getting back on track again."

"The victories will start to come," Thomas said. "From where we were to where we are this is the time you start taking steps forward. Last year I thought we had a chance to make the playoffs. I think this year we'll have a chance to make the playoffs. The way the East is now, there are five or six teams searching to find themselves and we're one of them. I think there'll be three or four of those teams that will find themselves, head into the playoffs and I think we'll be one of them."

If Isiah can be happy and confident in the wake of what he has done to the marquee franchise of the NBA, than sign me up! Perception is reality, and Isiah has created an alternate reality that rivals Narnia; a universe where he is successful. It must be a beautiful place for him to be able to forget about not only his current failures and short comings, but also his past (destroying the CBA and the Pacers).

I imagine there are no talking lions, dwarfs or Centaurs. Just Isiah sitting on his throne, casting out the non-believers, and granting the Knicks a championship year after year; in spite of the fact that the team is poorly contrived, selfish and inept. Isiah is not only the Knicks President and Coach, but the NBA commissioner and President of the whole world! He is so beloved and revered that everyone talks in a soft high voice to emulate His Greatness. He can call women bitches and invite them to meet him “off-site” with no repercussions of any kind. In fact, these women accept his invitation and make him a very happy man. His players can’t blackmail him because his indiscretions are known and accepted, much like Bill Clinton.

Isiah, I’m going to follow your lead. I vow to be successful, happy and optimistic regardless of the miserable failure I may be at any given time. I will also continue to tell the world about how victorious I have become and will continue to be. Perception is reality.

I Hate You, Shane Battier!

People say Shane Battier is a great guy. They say he's a model citizen and a true role model. Word is that he's the perfect teammate and a coaches dream. He's willing to do all the dirty work on the court, like taking charges. Damn, he can take a hit and flop on the ground like no one else.... except for Chuck Hayes, he's also supremely effective at taking a charge. I guess, he is just the guy that anyone would want on their team. Anyone, except for me.

I hate Shane Battier!

I hate him because Jeff Van Gundy and Carol Dawson thought he was the missing piece to a Rocket's championship, and they traded a super athletic supremely talented 19 year old, Rudy Gay, for him.

I hate him because he is so limited in his offensive repertoire that he is only capable of hitting a jump hook or a spot up three.

I hate him because he is shooting a phenomenal 41% from the field and 39% from three.

I hate him because he is the worst third scoring option on any team in the league.

I hate him because he is averaging a tremendous 8.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game this season.

I hate him because he is starting along side Chuck Hayes, who is amazingly even more offensively defective.

I hate him every time he takes a charge the announcers talk about how great Shane is at doing the little things.

I hate him because T-Mac is going to miss at least a month of the season with another injury, and the Rockets could really use a gifted scoring guard like... Rudy Gay.

I hate him because I was so thrilled and excited when I saw Rudy Gay slip to the Rockets at number 8 in the 2006 draft, and minutes later I find out they traded him away to the Grizzlies (along with Stromile Swift).

I hate him because Rudy Gay is averaging 19.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.6 assists, while shooting 47% from the field, in his second year.

I hate Shane Battier because of the fact that the Rockets mortgaged their future for him, thinking he would bring a Championship back to Houston, and they still have not won a first round playoff series.

Shane, I hated you the night of the draft day trade in 2006 when you came to Houston and my hatred only increases each time that I watch Rudy Gay put 25 plus points on any given team in the league.

My anger increases when I watch you face Rudy in a head to head match-up, only to see Rudy throw down a vicious dunk on your nonathletic ass!

I hate you because you are such a nice guy and it makes people blind as to how worthless you really are on the basketball court.

Simply put, I hate you Shane Battier and I always will.

Hiatus is Over

Alright, it's the new year and my daughter is getting better. She still gets fussy quite a bit, but she's gotten a lot better, or we've just become accustom to dealing with her. Therefore, I am back on the wagon and will be posting again starting tonight. Let the good times roll!
