    ha ha... trust me I know! one of the announcers used it during the game.. he's not a good announcer anyway. :nodding:

    EDIT: I should have clarified it was the local radio announcer on 710 KSPN.... these guys suck.

    FTFY - helps explain what enables ATL to make the playoffs.


    Eh, a good shooter who can help spread the floor for 15-20 minutes a night. Classic awesome Buford move. Just like when they picked up Captain Jack off of the scrap heap last season.


    I was watching this game. At one point they did an in-game interview with Anderson Varejao. They asked him to try his hand at play-by-play in Portuguese with that particular play. It was something like "blah blah blah....E LOS BIRDMAN!" It was pretty awesome.

    He is off blood thinners and is expected to be back for the beginning of next season.

    MEM v LAC is a toss, may go 7.

    NY v BOS is a toss

    IND will sweep ATL

    CHI over BKN

    Otherwise I think you're right.

    I went with Brooklyn over Chicago mainly because Chicago plays with more intensity than any other team during the regular season, but this levels out in the playoffs when both teams are actually playing for something. But wouldn't be really surprised if Chicago won this.

    Went with Grizz in 6 because I felt that the Clips would win if it goes to 7. But yeah, this one's a toss up.

    I honestly don't think Boston has any shot. Not having Rondo is really going to hurt in the playoffs. Only way Boston takes a few games is if the NY has some really bad shooting nights.

    And Indy can very likely sweep ATL, I'd agree with that.

    So am I crazy to think the Lakers might have a chance to knock off the Spurs?

    ^^

    Funny thing about that is that he probably doesn't feel too much different than that. He truly believes in his system and probably feels that Kobe is irrelevant to the team, what matter more is a good PG and a stretch 4, everyone else feeds off that.

    i'm with you bubba. i think either way it's going to be a pretty "ugly" series, unless you like half-court offense and really tough defense. but the lakers over the last week seem like they've rounded into about where they should have been at the all-star break. howard totally beasted on defense last night. stripped harden twice on drives to the bucket in big plays. gasol had his second triple-double. blake was hitting the open j. could happen.

    gotta say that i was a d'antoni fan going into this season, but not so much any more. he showed no flexibility as far as adapting to the talent he had. his rotations have been puzzling (at best). and the way he ran his vets into the ground was unforgivable. sure kobe never wanted to come out, but who's the coach? sometimes you have to stand up. Most frustrating is that now that kobe's down, he's stretching the rotation to 8 and 9 players.
