That’s right, your favorite two sports BS’er are back. Well Ok, we all know that I’m your favorite and Kellan is just filler, but we don’t want to rub that in his face or anything. We have recently made plans to post another podcast tonight and I’m sure that will get Kellan in the mood again to start posting his articles again. So basically we’re coming out of hiding and going to let K and J Sports out of the bag again.
That all being said, I would like to take this time to speak for a brief moment about my Colts. As the divisional round of the NFL playoffs comes near, the Baltimore Ravens will be stepping onto Lucas Oil Field Saturday, with the intensions to take down my #1 seed Colts. Now I personally believe the Colts can come out of this game ready to take on the Chargers or Jets, but I did read a comment on an ESPN article that has been echoing in my head this morning. “Consider this: IND has never won a (playoff) game as a no. 1 or no. 2 seed (since the NFL started seeding in 1975).” Granted your past does not dictate your future, but I am someone that holds statistics to be a guiding indicator of trends. Like rules, trends are made to be broken and the Colts are in a pretty good place to snap that horrible sounding streak. But on top of the 7 4th quarter come back wins this season, hearing that this morning has only inflamed the ulcer my team has given me this year from worrying.
The Colts have not played a full game since their Dec. 17th 35-31 win over Jacksonville, and as everyone knows this has started quite the conversation about resting starters or playing for perfection. Now I’m not going to get into that debate right now other then to say that if they get a ring the debate dies, if they don’t…well then the conversation lives.
So in conclusion, it looks like K and J Sports is back for the moment and there will be more posts to follow. And as always, GO COLTS!

Watch out, we’re on location. Do’in the podcast from a laptop, watch’in Boston and Cleveland. At least the podcast was better than the game.

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.

Ok, here’s the thing, I hate the Lakers. Truth be told, I hate Denver even more. The first round series that just wrapped up between L.A. and Denver has been a battle of two evils for me. The only redeeming factor is Kellan now owns me one U.S. dollar, a buck, a greenback, some scrill! Finally one of my rediculous predictions/bets have finally paid off!
The Lakers took care of the Nuggets in Denver last night, in what was game four of the first round of the western conference playoffs. The Nuggets really never seemed to show up to play against Kobe. Kobe did. He averaged 33.5 points per game, shooting exactly 50% from the field at 48-96 shots, and getting 6.3 assists along the way. I do have a bit of a problem with how Mr. Bryant conducts himself on the court, especially during the playoffs. There are many players in the association that have learned to flop with the best of them, and the best of them seems to be Kobe himself. Kobe has taken the flop to new heigths and his ability to whine at the refs is not unlike Larry Bird’s ability from “back-in-the-day.” In the last half of game four, I lost count after 18 or so flops that Kobe took. Now, I’m not saying he wasn’t getting fouled, but after his arms are thrown into the air for the thousandth time, it really starts to get old.
But aside from making this post a rant about what a little whiney @#%$& Kobe is, or how much I dislike the Denver Nuggets (well Denver in general), the most important thing about this post is that Kellan owns me money. So, no one in the west had a snowball’s chance to sweep in the playoffs this year. The west is just too strong and no team will let the other team run away with the home games. Well Kellan, you were wrong. More then anything else this is a moral victory for me. The Pats didn’t lose to Maimi, the Bulls didn’t win the finals this year (let alone make it to the playoffs), and the Blazers did make it to 500 when I said they wouldn’t. Now I realize that most people might find this win as a small one, but bragging rights are bragging right, and Kellan doesn’t get to have them for once!
In your face, how you like them apples, whaz up now, suck it, oh burn, and simply HA!

I’m gearing up for game 4 between San Antonio and Phoenix. I want Phoenix to win for a couple of reasons. First, I made a bet with Jeff that no one in the West would sweep. Second, I really wanted to see a Lakers-Suns match up this year. That had a lot of potential plot lines. Shaq vs. Kobe (I liked the NBA Playoffs commercial they did too), Shaq vs. Los Angeles, Phoenix has knocked the Lakers out of the playoffs for the last couple years. The Phoenix vs. Lakers games in the playoffs were already really good, I think that adding in Shaq made it even more interesting. And the third reason is that my buddy Abel is a HUGE Suns fan. Things aren’t looking too great for Phoenix, but Abel will shortly be a father (his boy is due next week.)
One more thing on a Phoenix vs Lakers series. Kobe has been smiling so much lately I think he needs a little run-in with Raja Bell.
Delonte West just hit a killer three pointer to put Washington down 3-1 on the series. It seems like if at least two other people on Cleveland can have good offensive games that the Cavaliers looks like a team that should be in the Playoffs. Delonte West and Daniel Gibson were the ones for Cleveland in this Game 4. It looks like Cleveland should be able to finish this series without too much difficulty. Now what happens when they get to Round 2? Read the rest of this entry »

After a week of rest it was time to break down the playoffs. And then we talked about hockey again. We’re getting better at it, although we’re still pretty bad. The non-hockey stuff though, pure gold.

Poor Dallas. I had already picked them as the team to fall out of the playoffs and then Dirk gets hurt. As a note I said either Phoenix or Dallas would fall and then Phoenix won their next seven games so I’m stuck with Dallas as my prediction. But Dallas is not looking good at only 1 game ahead of Golden State and only 1 1/2 games ahead of Denver. Tonight they play the Clippers. If they do not win this game I don’t see them being able to stay where they’re at.
Denver and Golden State are going to win more games than they lose, but I’m not sure that Dallas will do the same thing. Dallas and San Antonio are the worst teams in the West’s top 10 in the past ten games. Dallas is 5-5 and San Antonio is 4-6. Most teams only have about 12 games left on their schedule. So if Dallas loses two more games in that stretch than Denver or Golden State they are done for.
Should Avery Johnson be on the chopping block? I say no. He’s done amazing things with this team. I think the fault lies in the trade. If they had gotten Jason Kidd a month earlier they might have been able to do it. And maybe those 12 games will be enough time. But with Dirk out indefinitely (which can mean anything from next week to next season) they are going to have to rely on their bench, but the trade I think hurt them there too. The West is entirely too strong to change the decision maker in mid-stream.
