You'll recall my assessment of the Jazzy Jeffs' potential in the playoffs as thus:

They got lucky, and drew Houston, who everyone in this thread expected to be a first round bust even while they were winning 22 straight, so no surprise the Jazzy Jeffs are gonna move on and get taken out in the next round.

I'm currently watching Mike&Mike and Greenie is on a rampage about flopping (Kirilenko). While I think flopping is pretty obnoxious, I want to know why people only seem to care when it's a foreign player doing it? Half the league flops, but it seems like it's always a European with bad hair that gets lambasted for it (Vlade Divac for example).

Bigger point being that was a shit call, flop or not. And TMac has no room to bitch about it...gee, how about making a basket in a 4th quarter.

probably because the europeans overdue the flop.

taking a fake spill every now and then is being crafty... hitting the ground any time you draw contact (and sometimes when you don't) like a soccer player is obnoxious and not good for anyone.

mark jackson made a great point in the san antonio/phoenix game when, at one point, ginobli probably did get fouled by shaq but they didn't call it... saying essentialy that eventually all the flopping you do comes back to bite you in the ass, because refs start to think you're floping all the time and stop giving you calls. it's the boy who cries wolf syndrome.

Yes yes, I do recall that, however nobody thought the Jazz would go to down Houston and be up 2-0.

Bill Walton says the Jazz are a much better team this year and when Bill speaks it's usually considered Gospel.

The only problem is that Houston has an excuse...with the injuries to Yao and Rafer.

I agree that they would have probably somehow lost the first round anyway, but now they can say "if we had Yao."

the nba really needs to put the intentional foul into effect... for the life of me i can't understand how intentionally wrapping someone up off the ball isn't worth two shots and the ball. at any other level of basketball it is.

The way the refs altered the 3rd quarter and end of the game was memorable, to say the least.

That terrible offensive foul call at the end on Keyon Dooling almost cost the Magic the game.

And again, Chris Bosh and Sam Mitchell are both whiny bitches. Mitchell's on the court so much, you'd think he were still playing.

Wow. I forgot about this thread didn't I!

I guess its partially, that we don't get ANY telecasts, well I only have free to air, so I don't get to see anything, execpt from maybe the ocasional "OMG he got a 3 pointer on the buzzer in overtime" highlights. But other than that...Nadda! (But I think I winged about that last time)

So since the playoff started I've been watching the scores on Yahoo & ESPN.com.

Did the Suns go to sleep in the 3rd? San Antonio had like an 11-0 run going at the start, and they never got back into after that.

Also, looked like the Raptors/Magic game would have been great to watch!
