NBA Finals Game 3 Roundtable

June 10, 2008

Jeff – Ok, so this roundtable formatt seemed to work last time so we’re back today doing it again. The third game in the 2008 NBA Finals just started and the Lakers are behind in the series by two games. We were just talking about this being the first game in LA and just how much the seats cost. For floor seat to the game you are looking at 21.000 dollars, if you want second row it’s costing you 16.000. As a big sports fan myself, I can not see an game worth that kind of cash. Superbowl tickets are cheaper. I’m just a little floored.

As for the game, we’re currently looking at 9-7 Lakers with 5:31 left. Both teams are shooting terribly right now and I’m afraid this maybe a long game.

Kellan – Kobe looks real good tonight, athough he’s only 3-6 from the line.  Gotta hit your free throws in big games.  I like the fact that Kobe’s guarding Rondo.  Good move Coach Jackson.  One more thing, Radmonovic is playing terribly.  He needs to step it up.

Jeff – At this point in the game I’m really thinking my bet of Pierce not outscoring Kobe is going to be safe for one more game. Kobe is sitting at 17 points right now, and Pierce has yet to score. The game is now at 40-29 Lakers with 4 minutes left in the first half.

 Still Jeff – Ok, it’s the half and Kobe is at 19 points for this game. He’s leading all players, yet is pissed he’s missed five field goals. I’m going to make Kellan type now, I’m going outside.

Kellan – Actually Kobe is upset about his five missed free throws.  Garnett is shooting terribly.  Why does he keep taking shots from beyond twenty feet?  Isn’t he a post player?  Vujacic is playing very well.  He’s doing exactly what he needs to do to keep the Lakers successful.  The Lakers are looking good to be able to keep ahead in this game.  Although the second half is another beast. What if Pierce starts hitting shots?  What if Garnett hits shots?  It seems like Boston is being plagued by what was wrong with the Lakers in the first two games, poor shot selection.

Oh deuces.  You know what made this episode one of the best, Kellan cough’in over the money.  It’s a good feeling, one that can keep me warm at night.  Having his money and being able to rub it in, does life get any better?  I don’t see how it can.  Oh, and we did talk about some sports along the way.  And by sports I mean just NBA playoffs, we ran a little long.

Portland vs. Milwaukee – Kellan

March 7, 2008

My current viewing options are few a bad. I could watch the Chicago vs. Boston game in HD, but it’s 49-75 at this point. I don’t like watching it when things are this lopsided (although I wish I could watch Golden State right now beating Miami 128-92, take that accuscore. My other choice is a Portland vs. Milwaukee game that has already had 27 free throws and 19 personal fouls. Hopefully the play picks up in the second half.

Baron Davis being awesome

So I really think that Golden State is going to find a way to get into the playoffs and shake things up. I think that Denver has a fair chance too. And it’s because of the Jason Kidd and Shaquille O’Neil. I love these guys, but they do not seem to be the greatest fits for their teams. And even if they come through and start meshing better with their respective teams then they might find themselves out of the playoffs. It’s not enough to win half of your games.

Random Notes – Kellan

March 3, 2008

Haven’t posted in a while. Been busy. I finished up some of those books I had stacked up. I’m going to try and write a review for The Kitchen Readings in the next couple of days. I highly recommend it for those who enjoy Hunter S. Thompson.

Semi-Pro

I also went to go and watch Semi-Pro this weekend. It was a funny movie. It was all of the crudeness that I’ve been craving. Ferrell was good, but really it was the supporting cast that made the movie shine. Really my only problem with Will Ferrell is that his character was the exact same as like 4 other movies he’s done. (I’m not sure if I’ll see the one where he and his stepbrother live at their parents place and act like 9 year olds, I already sat through Kicking and Screaming.) Although the shtick works in this one, so why fix something that ain’t broke? The basketball scenes were pretty good as well. It fit the typical Read the rest of this entry »
