Jason Richardson stepped out of his Delorean in a Phoenix uniform and dropped 24 points on 9-for-14 shooting (six threes). Dude hasn’t cleared 20 points since January 15 and hasn’t scored 24 since December 15. S’what happens when you go from being a team’s no.1 offensive option to another team’s no.4 offensive option.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Between trades and buyouts, more than 50 players will be wearing jerseys they weren’t wearing a week ago. Fifty. Five-oh, my! We’ve had three of the league’s top 20 players switch conferences (Aw, shucks. You still consider me top 20? Easy, Gerald Wallace.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Through the first half of the season, any Clipper talk has centered almost primarily around Blake Griffin‘s phatness or Baron Davis‘ fatness. Little respect has been paid to one of the surprise top 10 scorers in the league, Eric Gordon.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Amidst all the tomfoolery, rigmarole and other old-timey adjectives my grandfather uses when he throws his shoulder out churning his Victrola, connected with the pending blockbuster trade that need not be discussed until it is official, a story likely to get lost in the shuffle is Cleveland’s loss of yet another roster bulwark (another grandpappy word) Anderson Varejao. Having only played one game since Christmas, Varejao will miss the remainder of the season with a torn foot tendon.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The biggest bust in the NBA that no one is talking about has got to be Tim Duncan. Well, no. Technically, Boris Diaw‘s bust is the biggest one no one is talking about, but that’s just because he’s sensitive about it.Please, blog, may I have some more?
At this point, any news involving anyone on the Nuggets can be considered Carmelo news. It’s ‘Melo’s galaxy, everyone else is just orbiting in it, baby! That includes Al Harrington, who left in the first quarter with what was described as a dislocated thumb.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The story with Sacramento’s reigning Rookie of the Year is as easy as pie. Unless you’re talking about Uncle Jake’s hardscrabble country pie, then it’s easier than pie. Or perhaps you meant pi, in which case Tyreke Evans‘ ongoing foot and ankle injury is also easier than that as well.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Marvin Williams strung together a trio of decent games this week (15/8 while shooting .586 from the field) and now Joe Johnson is recovering from having ‘loose bodies’ in his elbow. It’s not as bad as Robert Mapplethorpe’s collection of elbows in loose bodies, but still.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Atlanta Hawks, record-wise, are winners. They’re 12-7 so far this season. But, really, there isn’t a bigger batch of losers with winning records out there. They rely on Mike Bibby to give ‘em 29 minutes per game. Marvin Williams still hasn’t turned into the dynamic swingman they hoped for … yet still starts for Atlanta.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Pacers scored 54 points in the third quarter after going 20-for-21 from the floor. They were 20-for-20 until Josh McRoberts heaved a lazy three with four seconds remaining (why was Doc McRoberts shooting a three? Oy!). I mention McRoberts’ heave because his 2/10/4 line isn’t enough to get him mentioned otherwise.Please, blog, may I have some more?
