NBA Monarchial Discussions With Malice

7 05 2008

Kobe Bean Bryant was crowned the NBA MVP for season 2007/08 today. Kinda harsh that they gave it to him on Chris Paul’s birthday tho’. A worthy MVP, despite what some folks might say. More on that later this week.

Only a matter of time before Mike D’Antoni finds another team that wants him.
Me?
Would love to see him in Chicago… they have the talent, they just need someone who can help them to believe in themselves. From all accounts, that’s something that D’Antoni was very, very good at.
On the other guy at the top of the ‘free-from-employment’ line-up of coaches – Avery Johnson… does anyone think that he might actually be a pretty good fit with what Phoenix want to happen?

Only one game today,

  • And damn, some All-Star stink in it. The Celtics ended up running out winners 76-72. Cleveland barely shot 30%… and LeBron James added to his reputation as being a ‘clutch guy’. James ended the night with a double/double – 12 points, 10 turnovers. LeBron only hit two from eighteen attempts on the night. Ugh. SIXTEEN MISSES.
    Neither Paul Pierce or Ray Allen had good nights either – Allen hit a goose-egg from his 4 attempts. Pierce wasn’t any better – hitting two of 14 attempts. Matter o’ fact, Pierce was almost James-like in his game: 6 TOs with his awful shooting.
    Luckily for the C’s, they have KG.
    And Rondo.
    Still… not sure that they can count on LeBron being as woeful as he was this game… one thing I do know: going to be a better series than I thought before the playoffs began.
    Vodpod videos no longer available.

Tomorrow’s games:

  1. Detroit at Orlando – Orlando really need to step up big-time if they are to win this.  And win they must.
  2. Utah in Los Angeles – An interesting series… It’s doubtful that Utah beat LA in LA, but it’ll be tough for LA to beat the Jazz in their own house.  If the refs would call ‘fouls’ as ‘fouls’ in Salt Lake, might be a different story

That Celtics-Cavs series will indeed be better than expected. One issue to take into account is how much the perceived dominance of Boston affects our judgment.

A lot of people chalk up the Celtics-Hawks “debacle” to a lack of focus on the Celtic’s part. But are the C’s really as good as everyone thinks they are?

Awful game.

Word is at the moment that D’Antoni is headed to NY. Sources state that the Knicks are going to throw truckloads of money at him to lure him away from Chicago.

I hear you… and agree. Still, he’ll have to weigh up – skill vs dollars.
