NBA Finals Game 6 Roundtable

June 17, 2008

Kellan – Tip-off is only about ten minutes away.  I have to say it would be amazing to see this go to seven games, but at the same time the Celtics have clearly been the better team.  I think that the Celtics will win.  I’m hoping for Los Angeles.  Did they just say Paula Cole is singing the National Anthem?  I thought she was someone that the public agreed to forget about as a silly thing from the 90’s.  Everybody, you’re Boston entertainer.

Kellan – I found it hilarious that the fireworks just hit the Jumbo-Tron.  I’m going to have to agree with David Stern about that fireworks issue.  At least they didn’t go too crazy like during the series with Cleveland.  I don’t like it when the stadium is smoky, it makes me feel bad for the people in the nosebleeds.

Jeff – Ok, so I just got here, yet I did make it for the tip-off. As the game is now 10-10 I really just hope, like Kellan, for a game seven. I looked away for a second and Kobe hit his second three. As much as I don’t like the guy I really enjoy watching him play the game. That is until he starts complaining to the refs and whining like a three year old told to go to bed at seven in the evening. I would at this time like to throw up the first picture and give the old hat a tip to Tiger and his US Open win on Monday.

Kellan – I have to say that I’m pretty excited that both teams came out with their A-game.  It seems like only one team or the other is doing well at any given moment in the series.  Nice oop to Garnett.  Boston 22-Los Angeles 18.  One minute left in the first.

Jeff – The question I have for this game is which bench is actually going to show up tonight. It seems that there has been one, maybe two, players from each team’s bench that have one good night and instantly become a fan fav. Sasha Vujacic was a quick fav, it also some recently it was Eddie House from Boston. So, who’s it gonna be tonight?

Kellan – Turiaf did real well to get a foul on Boston on the rebound attempt.  Good energy.  Bad foul Powe.  No reason for it.  Two fouls in the first minute is a great way for Boston to put LA on the free throw line for a quarter.  Another foul on Boston.  3 team fouls in less than two minutes.  Boston is looking sloppy now.  And Doc Rivers with a technical.  How about that for a the worst head coach in the league.  I feel a Sam Cassell substitution in the near future.

I-80 vs. I-5 vs. I-10 vs. I-95

March 9, 2008

I-80 West to East

Oakland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, Chicago, Cleveland, Knicks and Nets

I-10 West to East

Lakers, Clippers, Phoenix, San Antonio, Houston, and New Orleans

I-95 North to South

Boston, Knicks and Nets, Philly, Washington Wiz, and Miami

I-5 North to South
Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, Lakers, Clippers

So I-80 takes it. Although that’s okay because it included the Warriors while we had to skip it for I-5. And I-5 is in danger of only having four teams when the Sonics move to Oklahoma City. So I-5 will soon only have four teams unless the Save Our Sonics movement works.

Here’s a book I’m planning on getting the next time I can find time to actually make it to a book store. It’s called The Kitchen Readings: Untold Stories of Hunter S. Thompson. The excerpt was great, although a bit PG-13. Good times though at Hunter’s sporting events. My favorite line came early: “Hunter had no problem with children, as long as they were willing to gamble along with everyone else.” I’ll let you know how things go when I’m done.

If anybody saw that terrible Tom Brady post I regretted and eventually took down I want to make amends. A much better post than mine was done over at Girls Gone Sports. So in case anyone hasn’t figured it out the Patriots lost. I can once again root for the Celtics. I will no longer worry about the cloud of smug consuming America from Boston.

Shaq goes to the Suns. I was discussing this with various people and think that the Suns may improve because of this. They may also tank terribly. I have to think the team will do well though and especially against teams with big men. I think Marion will do well in Miami as well. Yeah, Miami probably won’t be in championship contention anytime soon, but Marion will keep doing what he does. With Wade as the other big name he’ll get the respect he feels he deserves. I think it was always hard for him to realize that Nash and Stoudamire were what the team was really about. But he’ll either be the guy in Miami, or duck out and find a different team next year. Time will tell. Read the rest of this entry »
