It’s on!

Posted: April 30, 2009 in NBA, playoffs
Man oh man! Rajon Rondo better be strapped next time he hits the city of Wind. He just Irish whipped Capt Kirk into the scorer’s table, setting off a near melee.

Surprisingly, he only got whistled with a flagrant 1. Hinrich received a T for his efforts.

Stank-0 you may have been wrong about that bad blood comment.

There isn’t a better series jumpin off in playoff sports right now, including the Bulls-Celtics, multi-overtime games. That is a great series but there’s no bad blood between these teams, Rando’s head swipe notwithstanding.

I dunno Stank-0, but all it will take is one small provocation for it to be on and poppin. It was waiting to pop off, there have been pushes, shoves, etc all series. This feels a lil bit like the great Heat-Knicks battles of the 90s. Just a lil though.

As a result, they have been callin this game extremely tight. This is a good game and it’s only the 1st Q.

UPDATE!

How trill has this game been? Three OTs! Joakim Noah bangin in Pierce’s mug. Eddie House just came in and splashed a J to bring the Celtics within one.

Um, that pick was a MOVING screen! Refs need to get on they job! I’m goin live now.

Bulls inbound and Miller is fouled by Glen Big Baby Davis. Davis is gone. Miller to the line.

Hit the first one…second one….good!

Davis gonna cry now. MAN UP!

Time out, Boston! 128-125 Chicago!

Commercial for Next Day Air. Meh. Typical urban/hood movie. Actors gotta eat too!

Back to the game.

Rondo scores. One point game. Time out.

Commercial about nothing.

Games back on.

Bulls inbounding. Hinrich missed the gimme. That hurt. Celtics last time out. I dunno if that wasn’t a bit of goaltending. He touched the cylinder. Kirk, use your left bruh!

Celtics inbounding. In to Rondo, immediate foul. Again to Rondo. Tossed by Rose. Breakaway and the foul. Foul on Scalabrine.

Rose at the line. Missed the 1st. Pressure!

Missed the second. Rondo from deep…missed! Ball game! Chicago wins 128-127. WOW!

The Washington Capitals advance to face the Pittsburgh Penguins.  Now they faced off early in the season, and there was some bad blood between Sid and AO.  Here’s the particulars in case ya’ll forgot. 

After a little push-and-shove, Sidney Crosby was still running his mouth, even as his helmet came off and a linesman tried to push him back toward the bench.

Alex Ovechkin responded with a dismissive, “bye-bye” wave of the left hand, practically taunting the Pittsburgh Penguins star.

This is gonna be great.  There is no way that some talkin and fisticuffs do NOT pop off.  They clearly DISLIKE/HATE each other, and its filtered down to their respective teams. 

There isn’t a better series jumpin off in playoff sports right now, including the Bulls-Celtics, multi-overtime games.  That is a great series but there’s no bad blood between these teams, Rando’s head swipe notwithstanding. 

This series is goin to at least 6 games.  Stank-0 picks the Capitals to advance.  AO for MVP!  Son has been scoring like a HS QB on prom night.  That would be back to back!

Thank You Denver…. Good night

I am so happy that Denver did what everyone thought they could after the shellacking put down on the NO Buzz earlier this weekend. They WON THE SERIES…..

I was so tired of hearing every year, Melo can’t get to the second round. Melo doesn’t have the killer instinct. Melo this, Melo that.

Does anyone realize that a basketball team is more than one man????

I sorta dont understand the logic. Bron Bron was able to get to later playoff rounds in a weaker Eastern conference with help. The Cavs played and embarassed the Wiz for 2 straight years and on top of that the Wizards were always hurt. People forget about that. Melo without much consistent help kept getting to the playoffs in a much more arduous Western Conference and happened to lose in the first round.

I am ecstatic. They talk about Man crushes, Melo is by far not my Man Crush, but he is from Baltimore (Check), Played at Syracuse (Check, Check, Syracuse is one of my all time fave schools, and orange is my favorite color), and he is a Jordan Brand athlete (Check, Check, Check). So while he fits three different criterion for the Man Crush, I am just fond of the player that he is becoming. I will expand later on his consistent Olympic snubbing, but that is for later.

Congrats Nuggets, Get prepared to put it on the Mavs ( I cant stand the MAVS AT ALL!!!!!!!!) Granted I have much respect for Mark Cuban’s Gangster (verb not noun) I still dont like the Mavs. Dirk and Terry and Howard, all good guys, But really Mavs <<<<<>>>>> KID SID!!!!!
