NBA musings with malice

31 10 2007

Not that I’ll do a wrap-up of EVERY game, but the first three of the season… well, that’s important. My thoughts on the season openers…

  • Anyone else here surprised as hell with how well Portland played tonight against the Spurs (SA 106 – P 97)? Henry finds the way the Spurs play BOOOOORING!Hell, it’s almost as if they started believing in themselves post acquiring the big guy who’s now out with microfracture surgery… I know I’m impressed.
    They really did threaten the reigning champions, and even tho’ San Antonio continued to do what they always do – win – there were times when I thought the Jail Trail Blazers were in with a shot. Kudos to them, keep it up. And kudos to the Spurs too. Even tho’ I find their brand of basketball oh-so-bland & yawn-inspiring, their version of ‘The Big Three’ keep going.
  • Utah (U 117 – GSW 96) look like being a real threat again this year – Boozer’s a monster. Deron Williams continues to develop into one of the better point-men in the league too. And unsung Paul Millsap – a great third option. Boozer was a man amongst boys, 32 points and 15 rebounds, and Golden State just had NOTHING they could throw at ol’ Carlos to slow him down. Missing resident crazy Stephen Jackson certainly will hurt the Warriors, as will a very nasty schedule to begin with.
    I think that Golden State are a team that runs very hot, and very cold. Early dysfunction is really nothing to be too worried about… I get the feeling that this is exactly what that team thrives on.
  • Kobe appears to be playing with a chip on his shoulder, and that’s good news for the Lakers… while he’s still a Laker – 45 points, 4 assists & 8 rebounds is a good night at the office. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough for LA’s premier franchise (no… the Clips don’t take that yet), and they fell short against Houston, Shane Battier hitting a tie-breaker trey with seconds left to carry Houston home 95-93. Yao was a juggernaut with 25 points, 12 rebounds (4 offensive) and 3 blocks, and the Lakers big men – Brown, Bynum & Mihm – could only equal that total when added together.
    Kobe Lite T-Mac was in good form too with 30 points…
    Houston could be good this year, but they’ll have to play better than this.
    Meanwhile LA? Everyone’s watching them with the same morbid fascination we pay to an impending car wreck…

Greetings. This is a strange question, but I came across your site through google while looking for this girl’s name. I believe she’s a Japanese AV idol.

Would you, or any other reader here happen to know her name?
