Jeff Van Gundy makes me sad. He says Lebron should NOT get a T for pegging the ball at Jermaine O'Neal. Really? Because Jermaine didn't play matador defense and just get out of the way and let Quitness just dunk at will, it's OK to whip the ball at him like a petulant child. That wouldn't surprise me from some people, but from JVG it's disappointing.

Not to mention that since all 3 of LBJ, Wade, and Bosh have T's they've been allowed to lose their shit every time something doesn't go their way, with no fear of a T since no way any of them are getting tossed. I think I hate them more than the Lakers.

I was surpised by Van Gundy saying that as well. That was as clear cut a T as you'll see.

They would have had to practically win out the rest of the games. It was fun for them to chase the top but once they finally lost and the Spurs won, I think they just lost their energy and were pretty much ready for the regular season to be over and done with.

This is definitely an embarrassing stretch of basketball though. Not exactly setting a message to your opponents for the post-season.

As inaccurate as today's game was in predicting a possible play-off matchup, I think that the Magic can certainly hold their own if they meet the Bulls in the 2nd round. The biggest mismatches on the court for the Bulls are Jason Richardson, Ryan Anderson and Dwight... and of course, no one on the Magic can come close to guarding Rose. Nelson's able to get his points, though he'll never come close to equalizing Rose's output.

They're at comparable levels as far as team defense is concerned in efficiency (Bulls at 1, Magic at 5) and more streamlined numbers. The biggest difference is that the Bulls' best player is easily their go-to guy, whereas Dwight has never solidified that role, and to me, that's the major difference.

Hell, I'm not even sure if the Magic will make it out of the first round with the way that they've been playing lately. If they do, it'll probably go to 6 games versus a potential Bulls sweep of the Pacers. We'll see.

That all makes sense. But now they're in danger of losing the #2 seed, tied with Dallas right now. If the Spurs don't even get to the Conference Finals then the Lakers don't need that top spot, but being the runner-up would sure help.

thankfully i'm not stupid enough to think that the celtics weren't coasting for the last month as they always do... so i'm not entering this with any illusions of the knicks actually winning.

Yeah - I'll consider myself happy if the Knicks take the series to game 6.

Fucking pro sport leagues refuse to start or end a series that will get big ratings on Saturday night because bars ruin their antiquated bullshit ratings. It's infuriating.
