    i dunno. i would think a close up is a better view than a side view from the audience. at first i didnt understand what was such a big deal besides harden falling down, but damn. elbow to the chin was mad vicious. it seemed like it was knee jerk reaction tho in response to the physicality of the game and the adrenaline rush from a good play that lead to a dunk, but still no excuse for that kinda shit


    also spurs take number 1 seed


    whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat

    i'm happy for stevie.
    the problem with slo-mo is that it seems to add a sense of consciousness to it that isn't necessarily there (particularly in ron's case). you watch him wind up and whip around, it seems like it must have been intentional. run at full-speed, you see that it all happened in the blink of an eye.

    MWP is such an idiot. He reminds me of kids I played with in High School.
    He will and should get 5-7 games and a big fine. It sucks, becaue he was having a decent season.

    Thoughts? I think the Lakers, Mavs, and Spurs are good bets. I don't see why Miami has a 3/2.

    Chicago Bulls 3/1
    Oklahoma City Thunder 4/1
    San Antonio Spurs 6/1
    Los Angeles Lakers 12/1
    Boston Celtics 15/1
    New York Knicks 18/1
    Los Angeles Clippers 20/1
    Memphis Grizzlies 25/1
    Indiana Pacers 40/1

    it's amazing how bad mj is at everything outside of playing ball.

    marriage, humility, baseball, ownership, sneakers after jordan V. sucks at all of them.

    so MWP gets 7 games including playoffs. i guess that means we won't see him till next season :p

    this last week of the season is going to suck. turned on Sun Sports tonight and was excited to see Heat-Celtics on the schedule. well, now i'm watching Pittman, Battier and Mike Miller start against Pavlovic, Bass and Avery Bradley

    has anyone done more to ruin a season for a team and a city than Dwight Howard? not since Derrick Coleman was in the league i don't think. Len Bias doesn't count because it wasn't his fault he died (well, sort of)

    Punishment fits the action.


    Can't win EVERY time. But I bet he has made some scratch gambling.
