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.
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.

I’m gearing up for the game right now. I didn’t care about Miami-Houston really. Then again the other game of the night was originally supposed to an Oden vs. Durant match-up but due to Oden’s injury and Portland’s lackluster February I imagine people in other cities might call the whole night a wash. Only 1 of those 3 teams is making the playoffs. It stands as the opposite of last night’s game with Phoenix and the LA Lakers. There were so many subplots and it was a fast paced and close game. Just a joy to watch. I’m afraid that I may have to cringe a couple of times tonight.
John Canzano explains why Darius Miles should retire. The opening story about him and Dennis Dixon going to a strip club (that is about 10 minutes away from where I live) is just hilarious. At least it seems like everyone was enjoying themselves.
Larry Hughes got traded. Now that he’s on the Bulls I can still use him for the Least Valuable Player if the Cavaliers make it deep into the playoffs. Let’s see what happens to this Bulls team. At least they finally did something to try and motivate these guys that headed into the season as heavy favorites to make it into the playoffs. Instead they are floundering in a weak Eastern Conference.
Channing Frye challenges anyone to a game of Halo 3. I got kind of burned out on playing but I think it’d be cool to see if I could hold my own against Channing. I seem to be able to rock all of my friends in one on battle, but Channing seems like he would be pretty competitive. Read the rest of this entry »
