Tyreke Evans will miss the next three weeks with the same foot problems that has dogged him all week. Normally in these circumstances, the coach would identify a replacement to take over. Paul Westphal won’t do that. Pooh Jeter, Jermaine Taylor, Luther Head, and Donte Greene will all profit, but only for one in every five games.Please, blog, may I have some more?
… Well, okay. Maybe don’t start Rodrigue Beaubois tonight. I needed a title to today’s rundown and it seemed to fit. They can’t all be winners. Heck, ¾ of ’em can’t be winners. You try writing about the same 250-ish players every day.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Paul Pierce played almost 40 minutes and went 0-for-10 from the field, and 1-for-2 from the line. Forty minutes, bro!?! I get that sometimes players have off nights, but half his shots were from behind the line. Scoot up and maybe make a shot, huh, Paul?Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Nets beat one of the best teams in the Western Conference last night on the strength of three bench players. So it makes perfect sense for me to choose this day to poo on him for being such a bad coach.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It always bugged me that in ‘Do-Re-Mi,’ the hyper-catchy song from The Sound of Music, the ‘La’ portion of the musical scales was just a note to follow ‘So.’ That’s some bullshizz. ‘Do’ is an animal, ‘Re’ is the sunlight, “Me” is you.Please, blog, may I have some more?
So O.J. Mayo‘s life of crime isn’t working out as he hoped. First he gets his time with USC struck from the historical record after accepting swag, then his short time as a Bourré cardsharp ended with a black eye, and now he’s suspended 10 games for using the illegal muscle-builder DHEA.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Okay, so it turns out hurling bricks is not as good for Mo Williams‘ hips and groin-ial area as Mo at first thought. He’s out for a while. Frankly, the vagueness of Mo’s injury parallels the vagueness of what part of this dude is even injured.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?
I spend one afternoon caroling in my neighborhood and lookit what happens: I return to a league that colluded to all swap jerseys and make me nuts. There’s no way, I’m going to be able to remember that a) Hedo Turkoglu is not on the Suns, b) Hedo Turkoglu was ever not on the Magic and c) Vince Carter isn’t on a pitiful D.C.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Look, I’m not going to go nuts here and tell you that Andrea Bargnani is terrible or overrated or any other hyperbolic fluff that clearly isn’t true. Bargs can play. He’s averaging 19 points in 32 minutes per NBA game. That’s something even I can’t do, and I’m great at basketball, according to my rec-league teammates.Please, blog, may I have some more?
