It must've been buried in the realism.

LEBRON JAMES, WITH NO REGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE

Also, Anderson Varejao is a punk.

Nobody can win on the road this year.

Hornets dropped both in San Antonio.

LA dropped both in Utah.

Boston dropped three in Atlanta and now both in Cleveland.

San Antonio dropped both in New Orleans.

Utah dropped both in LA.

Cleveland dropped both in Boston.

Now that was cringe-worthy. And if Varejao is a punk what's Wally Szczszczrbk?

to be fair the only dirty player on the spurs is bowen. and he only started getting dirty as he got older and couldn't D up the way he used to, so he relies on some less than classy tactics.

horry of course made a dirty play last year... but he's always been a class act and that seemed to be more of a momentary thing.

balk ginobli isn't dirty... he just falls down if a stiff breeze passes by... but so does half the league at this point.

and so it begins... reports already have d'antoni pushing walsh to go out and get barbosa and diaw, who apparently steve kerr also doesn't like. there are also reports that nash, who can opt out of his contract after this season (and oh by the way lives in SoHo in the off-season) plans to do just that and reunite with d'antoni next season.

i think he'd be a swell backup for derrick rose

new york fans are just asinine... seems more people are complaining about the hiring of d'antoni than like it, if you listen to the FAN. they all want mark jackson... who's never coached a single game in his life. ummm... what?

these are probably the same people who thought going into this year that isiah was doing a good job. it's unbelievable.

new york always gets a reputation for being a good sports town but the majority of the fans tend to be quite stupid.

I'm so curious as to what actually happened between D'antoni and Kerr.

that's easy... kerr came in with zero experience and tried to tell a coach who had won 58+ games 4 years in a row what to do. that would turn most people off.

back to actuall on going basketball... don't you get the feeling that lebron's shooting has been so god awful that he's just due for a game, much like he had last year, where he just hits all sorts of ridiculous shots and goes for 40+?

and couldn't you see that happening in game 5 in boston, letting cleveland steal one on the road? and can't you hear the perverbial ass holes of every person east of I-91 clenching up as the celtics have to win in cleveland just to force a game 7?

i know i can.

The ESPN ticker just said D'Antoni's pushing to trade Marbury... now that's gotta be exciting for you.

The Celts need to get out and run in Game 5, actually get some easy shots off. Hard series to watch, but it's been interesting, that's for sure.

Doubt the Magic will steal a game in Detroit, hope they do though.

Thank God someone else noticed this. I don't think I've ever laughed as hard at any non-Gus-Johnson-related call.


Well, maybe a few of these:

depends on what they get back... if they trade him for medicore players with bad contracts, well then we're just right back to where we started, aren't we.

marbury's contract is up at the end of the year. if he can't be dealt for another expiring contract, or some sort of no brainer move like the one the celtics made for KG, then just buy him out and let him go somewhere else... especially if they can end up with either rose or bayless.

Where's Glen Rice when you need him?

Trade Machine tries:
Suns: Diaw, Barbosa, Bell for Marbury - works
Clippers: Brand and Tim Thomas - Brand'll opt out anyway, but you'd have to take on Thomas' corpse (would be great to lure LeBron in '10, also)
Pacers: Jermaine O'Neal - probably makes the most sense, seeing that their contracts match up, both have overstayed their welcome, the Walsh/Pacer connection, and the need for rejuvenation under D'Antoni's system

Who's more likely to be moved? Randolph or Curry?
