I do like Utah, though. I always have to root my fellow Alaskans.
we are 11-2 since the addition of Korver.
I think Okur has also been a factor in that, he started off this season horrible..
if the Jazz had lost last night, they'd be sitting 9th in the conference this morning. with the win, they're 3rd. what a weird year.
meanwhile in the east, the Hawks are 18-22 but sitting at the 7th seed.
if the playoffs were held today, we'd be looking at Jazz-Lakers and Mavericks-Spurs in the first round alone. holy shit.
with 4:39 left in the 3rd quarter, the Suns lead the Hawks 75-44.
44 points. gotta love that eastern conference basketball.
Wow, this is very NO GOOD Atlanta. Warriors just lost to Houston. Wish GS had a good big man. That really is the missing piece for most teams, Suns included.
Webber coming back to GS is going to be a disaster.
eh, i dunno. he's playing for the minimum. if Webber can play 10 mins a night and give them some quality minutes, I think it's a win for GS.
meanwhile, Suns and Spurs supposedly in the running for Damon Stoudamire.
I think Dallas should get in the running for Kidd and dump Jason Terry..
And I think we're seeing the Spurs getting alot older before our eyes. How the fuck do you lose to Seattle?
As a Sonics fan, tonight will probably be the high point of my season.
Well... I'm a Twolves fan, so you got 2 games up on us. The battle for the worst record is on!
Haha yeah it's a rough year for both our clubs, but at least we knew it was coming. Heat fans might feel the worst, they're only 2 years removed from a title. Now they're staring at (probably) 1-2 years max left out of Pat Riley, 1-2 years max out of "Shaq" (quotation marks because he's not close to the old Shaq), and I think Wade will opt out in a couple years. They could be bad for quite some time.
I dunno bout the San Antonio Sterns. are they really getting old, or are they just taking it easy til the real season begins in May? Tony Parker is like 26. (and didn't play against Seattle last night, he's out with bone spurs in his foot).
Also, the Suns have lost twice this year at the T-Wolves. Minnesota plays great against us for some reason. The NBA is just weird.
The Spurs are taking it easy and a little banged up. They are on their annual rodeo trip, and this is usually right about the time they turn it around every season. Expect them to finish strong from here on out. I hope I am wrong, but they are about 2 weeks from beginning a 12 game winning streak.
The T-Wolves just match up against the Suns well. I don't know why, but they do.
I know why, because Big Al is a beast down low and the Suns have no interior defense. Have you seen is #'s against Phoenix? Absolutely monsterous!
Eddie Johnson qoute from last nights game, "Al Harford is ready to shoot a Southwest Airlines commercial because he just wants to get away." LOL!
And I agree about the Spurs, after the All-Star break they will turn it on. I'm not worried about Dallas (like the Suns) they are too soft and lack the killer instinct needed. Don't be surprised if its Detroit vs. San Antonio.
plus, the Sterns have god on their side.
I just noticed the "Sterns"..Nice... Tony Parker is still young, but I think is Duncan beginning to wear past his prime. Then you're also depending on guys like Finley, Barry, Horry ,(who are older and always banged up), and non-scorers like Vaughn , Elson, Bowen and Oberto. I would be a little worried about the Spurs flippin' the switch come playoff time..
Or maybe it's just the fact that I fuckin' can't stand the Spurs.
I would like to cut off Bruce Bowen's testicles with a dull, rusty knife.
i can't imagine who boston'd give up for him though.
i hope he gets traded to milwaukee. fuckin wifebeater.
Sitting courtside and sending their kid into the locker room (no women allowed) to retrieve his cel phone. Then once getting it yelling out #'s and names of women while he was playing! Thats gotta be embarrassing!
Talk about baby-mama-drama.
No excuse to beat her, just sayin......
Holy Fuck, just what the Western Conference needed. Another legitimate threat.
Gasol to the Lakers for pile of shit
just getting rid of Kwame Brown makes the Lakers a much better team. he's like the worst player in NBA history.
