I had a good time watching all the games last night. So many good stories, it’s hard to just chose one to write about, so I’ll mix it all in to one post.
1. D’Antoni doesn’t deserve to coach my local intramural squad, so why is he still coaching the Knicks?
2. I can’t believe how much of a liability Landry is on offense AND defense. Everyone who he guarded went all the way IN on him. His turnovers were careless and exposed his low basketball IQ. He needs to be demoted. (Btw the photo above accurately depicts Landry’s blanket contribution to the game last night)
3. Did the Knicks collectively decide to just stop playing in the 4th?
4. Love how Mark Jackson coaches defense. His defense clearly created offensive opportunities from all the turnovers the Knicks had (see Landry)
5. WHY DOES D’ANTONI STILL HAVE A JOB??
6. The Warriors are tough! They have a few “surprise” weapons in their arsenal.
7. Steph and his fairy princess ankles need to heal quickly. Smith is NOT the right guard for them.
8. I think I can take Toney Douglass’ spot right now. No training camp or practice necessary. I don’t even need to know the plays- hell, he doesn’t.
9. I heard Landry was laughing and having a good time after the game. Whatever happened to taking losses personally- Especially when you lose the way the Knicks lost last night? I really don’t like Landry right now.
1. This is the first full game I’ve seen of the Bobcats. I actually really like them. They’re young, they move the ball well and they’re unselfish. Perhaps maybe a bit too unselfish at times, but they should learn when to do what as the season progresses.
2. They definitely won’t win, but I think they’ll make the playoffs and shock whoever they play in the east. This is a dangerous team.
3. Corey Maggette doesn’t deserve the green light. Not even yellow.
4. The most important thing I’ve learned from last night that the Heat intimidate teams into losing. Some players get caught in the hype of playing the big three and automatically shut down or are overwhelmed by their nerves. When the Heat play a fearless team that’s full of heart- like the Bobcats- they are exposed.
5. Tin Man (LBJ) is a bully. Too bad Kemba doesn’t care.
6. Bosh put in work last night.
7. Henderson played well last night but GO-LLY! Tin Man threw it too hard on him.
8. Bobcats should have won this. Click here
1. Rondo is still a problem. He’s been trying to carry the Celtics on his back, to no avail. Can’t wait until they’re back to normal.
2. Everything went right for the Hornets last night. They’re a decent team though.
3. Are the Celtics having a mental lapse? They looked lost on offense AND defense. They better have a team meeting or something and get back on the same page.
4. KG is passionate but he’s dying to catch someone’s fade. I think it’ll happen this season.
1. KD and Rudy Gay going basket for basket was the MOST exciting last night.
2. I want KD to win a chip so bad, it’s not even funny. Sadly, he never will if Russ doesn’t learn and play his role.
3. Seriously though…why does Russ shoot so much?
4. Imagine the headaches OKC would give the entire league if they ever got it all the way together! It’s impossible to stop KD, IMPOSSIBLE.
1. Guess the Spurs proved that we can’t count the old guys out yet.
2. Clippers won’t be great until they implement a scoring threat from beyond the arc to their game. All the Spurs had to do was clog the middle to stop the “Flyers” on the Clips.
3. I miss Chauncey on the Knicks.
4. CP3 is out of there after this season.
