Alright, this day shall be a combo of weird unrelatedness links and some bball. Some. Allez-y!
Phil Jackson got some beef with some people. He pointed fingers and called names and was being a big boo-boo face.
“The big key with Drew is they wouldn’t let him play,” Jackson said following the game.
Jackson called the matchup a “roughhouse game” and it was “one of those nights in Utah that you know you’re going to get.”
“The league throws out some referee corps that you’re dubious about to start with and, you know, the game ends up to be like that,” he said.
Each team was called for 26 fouls.
Heh, I love the dry humour of that last line from the AP report, way to stick it to Phil! Oh AP report, you slay me, SLAY me I say!
Let’s see, last night saw a bunch of action go down… some quick fires: Nets are actually among the living, who knew?… Knicks beat Cavs, like woah dude… Looking for some introspection for why the Spurs lost to the Jazz(s? es?)…For an outlook on tonight’s game one of TNT Thursday, Natalie from Need4Sheed previews the matchup vs. the Heat, complete with a Tay-mix.
And my prediction for the Ootah/Lakers game?: Boozer gets facialized either by Kobe, Odom, Denzel Washington or a combination of all three.
Bruce Lee’s theme park can totally kick Chuck Norris’ theme park’s ass.
Sticking with more kickingass-fu, Jean Claude Van Damme isn’t going to be in Rush Hour 3. DAMME it! (ha..ha..ha..)
Might have the radiocast thingy up later that all of you were dying for (re: probably only Ms. SunsGossip )
Update-y: Well, considering this was done on Monday and almost everything we talked about is even older, the whole thing is pretty much… passé. HOWEVER! You must listen, for my ego is very very fragile
I’d buy a whole box of ‘em!
He does look angry every time he’s on the court!
Haha, and I love those giant posters with “EVERYBODY REBOUND” and “KEEP YOUR MAN IN FRONT OF YOU” on the practice court wall. They should have one that says “DRIBBLE THE BASKETBALL”
Here are my Friday picks for viewing tonight: Dallas @ SanAn and New Joisey @ PHO. And while we’re at it, Knicks vs. Celtics: the excitment is killing me!
I neglected to say what I’m thankful for yesterday (though since I’m Canadian the conversion doesn’t work well anyway) but here’s a way of giving thanks, VISA commercials style:
Photoshopping fake Arenas t-shirts to be put on blog: free
Remembering that you can actually sell those fake tees: free, but I’m slow
Having the subject of those fake tees LINK BACK to your site on his NBA blog!: PRICELESS
Merry Thanksgiving to the citizens of the nation down south. Let’s git’er done.
Well, the Toronto Raptors are finally back from their Road Trip of Suck to win one against the Cavs. 25-14-6, Bosh can’t get any more stud-like than that. Canadians should now call this day Raptors’ 3rd Win Day! Huzzah!
“We remembered how to win games again,” Bosh said. “We made the right plays down the stretch, had the right people making shots.”
I hate it when I forget how to win games.
Red Alert! Michael Redd is stealthy (ya that was a cheesy lead-in..)
Vassilis Spanoulis, the Team US killah, got more minutes and played pretty well against the Wiz last night helping out with 10pts, a couple assists and grabbed some boards all in 17 minutes.
Asked if he was more “ready” than when the season began, Spanoulis did not seem to consider it a close call.
“Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes,” he said. “From the first time I came here, I came here to help the team win. It doesn’t matter if I make 20 points or zero points. I want to help my team win.”
He forgot to add at least seven more “yes”-es. Oh and in that article, Jeff VG calls him “Billy” hah, you think he calls Dikembe “Danny?”
This imaginary poll (or vote in the comments) can be based on anything, but my obvious suggestion is of course, their last names
I say, Gilbert, I’m using you as a sacrificial lamb to get a little word-usage something off my chest: you have one blog, with multiple blog entries or posts. Article is to magazine as post is to blog.
Gotta go with Henry on this one. You must be aware of your syntax homie! Now that you’re one of us.
Is it time to jump on the Jazz bandwagon yet??
Oh, and me talky hoops once again… and for some reason Alex is pimping the school paper I write for heavily because he hates the other school publication (we have many student papers). Odd.
I’ll come clean, before the season started, all the hullabaloo about Arenas‘ zaaany antics were charming, but felt a bit too much (the sobering bio piece from Washington Post notwithstanding). However, now that the season is well under way and Gil-Man is putting on a crazy show once again, the man-crush engine is starting all over again (see: doodling / tributes)
Staying current with his blog, he mentions the All-Star balloting:
Dude, just as soon as I break into a printing press, these will surely sell like rice cakes:
UPDATE!! Yes, you can REALLY buy them now! And I don’t even have to break into those high facility plants! Check out the back: Enjoy !!
UPDATE (2-double-0-7 Edition!):
The picture says it all dun’t it? Well, I needed to say THAT… but you know what I mean.. okay I’ll shutup now.. join the discussionz..
And seeing as we’re approaching the holiday-of-reluctantly-buying-crap for people you may or may not really like, I’d like to send out a wish for a gift I’d like to receive (that’s how it works right? Begging?) A while ago over at FreeDarko, they featured UndrCrwn’s Dynasty tees. When I tried to make the checkout payment, I was met with e-Commerce ethnic discrimination! See for yourself what they gave me!
Now now, I can easily give it to Mommy and forget the whole thing. But by Jorge, I’m demanding satisfaction! Then again, I might’ve clicked on “translate” by accident… Point being, someone buy me this shirt (en anglais s’il vous plait?)
(thx for my bro with el translationz.. just in case: yes, that’s made up, no discrimination.. yet)
Answer: Shane’s so smooth, he makes Nocioni take it like a man!
And I’m so glad I stayed up for Inside the NBA, that cross promotional segment with that chick and her show had “slowburn” turned to the max. But I might check it out, the clip showed one of my favourite comedians, Jim Gaffigan.
Oh, and Carlos Boozer’s a great guy, said Carlos Boozer.
Captions are muchos welcome!
“That’s right Andres! Think about THIS next time you try to come from behind to steal a win! Mwhahaah.”
