It's alright cuz your saved by the bell

There can't be any hate on this. There just can't. 25 consecutive points to win the game, on the road, swing game, against a team that plays great defense. How could you hate?

What can you say? Trying to hate on this would remind me of an old friend of mine who would pick apart girls when we were out. He'd say silly things like, "oh, she has big eyes" or "yuck, did you she the way she walks?". Cmon, even a true hater would be hard pressed to criticize this performance.

I'm not comparing him to MJ cuz I hate that but fuck, at least MJ had Pippen and Ho Grant and better shooters than anyone on the Cavs. Last night will be talked about ad nauseum so get used to it. I figured I'd get it out of the way early.

Congrats A-Rod. your more hated then Bonds. When asked if Bonds ever try to distract a player from making a play he quickly responded "No". This makes me laugh. The only way A-Rod becomes lovable (which he so dearly wants) is simple to me.

Break Bonds needle induced record.

We all know A-Rod did not do steroids (not definitevely but consesus is, he didnt) and we know this because he's always been super super talented and big. Strong, fast the whole nine yards.

He sits at 464 Hr's. He's 31. If he plays nine more years and averages a very pedestrian 33 Hr's a year. He'll break it. Unless Bonds puts serious distance to the record. Then he'd have to either play 10 more or avg about 38 hr's. Doable. It will be interesting to see the fan's response because no one else will be close to knocking Bonds off that crooked pedestial.

Billy D = Penny and Shaq are not walking thru that door

Way to go NHL. The spelling bee aired instead of your game. Bettman your a joke.

Vick will be indicted shorty. Without sounding racist, I told you so.

Remember it's FRIIIDAY!!!!

excellent post. all points well taken. i enjoyed the lbj show last night. i was not aware that hockey was still in season.

ebntx said...

why would vick get indicted? he just got a new haircut.

Beth said...

The local paper this morning reported that Airtran has dropped Vick as a spokesperson. Hmmmm, I wonder why...

Beth said...

EB, the Vick haircut story is getting some definite play in Atlanta but is it getting national press too?

ebntx said...

he probably had other commitments to fulfill with the atlanta humane society.

ebntx said...

it is but i have no idea why it is such a big deal.

ToddPacker said...

arod sucks

El Padrino said...

big time national play

ToddPacker said...

nice win for the mets... what's the word on beltran's knee, ep

El Padrino said...

tp dont be a sour puss, Willie ball is here to stay

tem said...

explain haircut.

lbj, i take back 50% of the bad things I said about you.

El Padrino said...

cant put pressure on it, not damaged though

just a bruise i guess
day to day.....

El Padrino said...

and let me add that david stern's cubby hit me in the head this morning because not only did it revitalize the series (which was borderline unwatchable) it piqued interest nationally andddd
prepped the nation for a lebron finals appearence which with that team is prettty imprressive

THE CHAMP. said...

LBJ. niiiiice.

i still hate him, but damn. that's what he should have been doing all playoffs. maybe that game will wake him up. or maybe it will be exactly like last year and the 'stons will win in 7.

ToddPacker said...

i'm very bitter today

El Padrino said...

I bet IAM is not a happy Piston fan this mornin'

and who did Sheed wanna fight? the refs?

THE CHAMP. said...

I still the the HR record is overrated.

2 records that are more important in baseball:

consecutive hit streak
consecutive games played.

ebntx said...

it is still to soon to call it but if pistons lose the series. thats what happens when you have flip saunders as a coach. the guy does not win.

THE CHAMP. said...

as a piston fan i'm pissed that they couldn't stop lebron once. they're supposed to be the "defensive team". they just sucked last night. get a stop in OT for christ's sake.

THE CHAMP. said...

note to the camera man:

show the girl in the yellow shirt sittin next to the pistons bench more often.

thanks.

ToddPacker said...

it did look too easy for lebron in ot

El Padrino said...

Maxiell = (Bill Walton voice)

TERRRIIIBBLLEE

THE CHAMP. said...

and why not just knock him the eff out on one of those drives. everyone is too scared of the flagarant 2 these days.

and yes that was a pussy call on McD.

El Padrino said...

56 games (hitting streak) will not be broken ever

THE CHAMP. said...

RE: 56 game hit streak

exactly why it's more important.

El Padrino said...

755 dingers is alot champ
overated how

tem said...

I think consecutive games streak is overrated.

hitting streak is awesome.

ebntx said...

i can understand why the pistons did not foul and make him shoot ft's.

ebntx said...

*can't

ebntx said...

hr record still is a big thing regardless of steroids or not. you still have to put your bat on it.

El Padrino said...

on the last layup they did, Maxiell (who's terrible btw) raped him on that last layup, luck no and 1 (wouldnt have mattered)

eb it comes down to what u said, Flip is a joke

Mike Brown is too but LBJ is carrying him

THE CHAMP. said...

i agree that it's an awesome stat. and an awesome record. i just think that the hit streak shows more skill and ability. it means that you had to play in all those games and the get a hit in all those games.

I'm not a huge baseball fan so I might just be totally wrong.

El Padrino said...

"hr record still is a big thing regardless of steroids or not. you still have to put your bat on it."

agree, no asterik for me

but i would like someone else to hold it, whether that's arod or not i dont care

ToddPacker said...

755 is all about longevity.... you gotta be hittin bombs for a lot of years...

ebntx said...

pistons are better off with chauncey as player/coach. that is something that should be brought back.

ebntx said...

i posted this last night, but anyone see giambi out at least 3 weeks after hr run?

THE CHAMP. said...

do you guys think the HR record is the most important record in all of sports? that's what i hear alot of people say.

how about the NFL rushing record (single season and all time)?

El Padrino said...

he's been playing with the injury though eb, it probably tore before that

Beth said...

Tem, the haircut story is simply that Vick just got his first haircut since 2004 (no more dreads apparently but I haven't seen a pic). In 2004 he said he wouldn't cut his hair til he won a Superbowl.

El Padrino said...

tough question but i think that it's skillfully harder to hit a baseball so i think it is

THE CHAMP. said...

"pistons are better off with chauncey as player/coach. that is something that should be brought back. "

yeah it's working for the Cavs. did you see in their time outs where LBJ talks more than mike brown? hahaha

the cavs might want to call Stan Van Gundy.

THE CHAMP. said...

"In 2004 he said he wouldn't cut his hair til he won a Superbowl. "

and he just realized he's not winning a superbowl.....ever.

well unless he's the 3rd string QB

tem said...

It is not the most important record in all of sports.

Although I can understand the argument. If you ask a random person to name the home run king I think a lot of people would get it right. Especially older ones. Young ones, not so much. Obviously sports fans young and old know it.

For football if you ask the all time rushing record I think young people would get it and old people might not have a clue. Again sports fans know.

The point is, papa tem, who hates sports, knows that Aaron is the home run king and has no clue who is the rushing champ. fmtem knows Aaron too, but can't name the rushing champ.

In summary, for non-sports fans I think the home run king is better known. But I suspect that will change as the NFL keeps chugging along and old people die.

Mills said...

I will be out today in about 10 mins.

Didn't get to see the game last night. Sad. Sounds like I missed an all-timer.

SG is right though. Obviously Bron Bron has an extra "Randy Moss" type gear, and that he already uses it at such a young age is kind of sad. Still...nice to see he what he can unleash when he wants to.

tem said...

Maybe he won the Super Bowl on Madden.

tem said...

Bron loafs at times, but damn that was impressive last night.

That's why I am only taking back 50% of the bad things I said about him.

ToddPacker said...

"do you guys think the HR record is the most important record in all of sports?"


probably

THE CHAMP. said...

tem,

good call.

THE CHAMP. said...

"I do hold one record, I was the only guy to take his skate off durring a fight and stab a guy in the neck with it."

Iam a beautiful rainbow said...

flip blows. bring no double teams? are u kidding me?

LBJ cake-walked, but that was impressive irregardlesslyizationalism..ist.

Iam a beautiful rainbow said...

and he did it with THAT team..

holysweetgotamn.

ebntx said...

iam there were double teams, but they were kind of weak and i think they expected to lbj to fold.

tem said...

Z looks like Balki's older brother from Methos.

Iam a beautiful rainbow said...

zeek's boy stevie kerr is taking over the Suns.

Josh Hancocks Seatbelt said...

Bron Bron was golden last night...anything he touched turned to gold. Fade away 3? Sure...Shot just inside of the line with a hand in his face, shot clock expiring, no angle? Sure...why not...

Josh Hancocks Seatbelt said...

Zeke's boy Steve Kerr also said Bron's game last night was "Jordan-esque"

Josh Hancocks Seatbelt said...

Iam a beautiful rainbow said...

yeah the doubles were very weak.. but also very few and far between.

this is one too many times.. Flip eats testicles like beth eats up a man's bank account.

fuuuuuuuriously.

tem said...

last drive of the game, there was no double.

a double happens before he blows by the first defender.

if he blows by one defender and another shows up, that is just help defense, not a double.

THE CHAMP. said...

not having McD killed them.

how does eric snow feel when they don't even acknowledge that he's on the offensive end of the floor. he could stand wide open under the basket and no one would guard him and his team wouldn't pass him the ball.

THE CHAMP. said...

thanks coach tem.

Iam a beautiful rainbow said...

letting a guy blow by and dunk on you like 15 times in a row means try something different.

game tying basket better be a mafuggin jumper, not a nut-hang on the whole team.

step the eff up.

blue said...

Some of Lebron's shots were incredible...the 3 he sank after webber's 3 point play was amazing...other than that, the pistons lost that game. Bron Bron scored a lot of points, but he had to, and I don't think he passed the ball in either overtime. Of course everyone will forget that he had a chance to win the game at the end of the 1st OT but shot a horrible airball

El Padrino said...

armando benitez was traded yesterday to the marlins

funny in two ways
1. Giants trading him in may for nothing clearly shows what they think of him

2. traded to a met division rival

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAa

THE CHAMP. said...

the game winning drive better end in a concucussion.

get rick mahorn away from george blaha and put him on the bench to help flip out.

El Padrino said...

and the braves really make out on that trade too

mando stinks vs. bravos

blue said...

hey flip....maybe chauncey is too short and too slow to guard Lebron...maybe

Josh Hancocks Seatbelt said...

Division foe? Yes...

A team the mets play 18 times a year? Yes...

Rival ELP? Come on, they were nothing of a rival...

blue said...

I made a mention in LoVAD that Laimbeer wouldn't have let anyone score that easily

THE CHAMP. said...

luke walton wants to be traded.

THE CHAMP. said...

tayshaun looked slow last night too.

Iam a beautiful rainbow said...

so at this point, can coaches still tell kids "one guy cant beat a team" with a straight face?

El Padrino said...

i consider all division opponents rivals

blue said...

I don't think Benitez will be their closer right away, but I could be wrong.

THE CHAMP. said...

there's no I in team.

but there's a ME!

THE CHAMP. said...

i hate to say it but....

the pistons needed ben wallace last night. not really the whole series, but just last night.

Iam a horrible lover said...

they needed some pride too.

tem said...

Spurs still kick the shit out of whoever wins this series.

blue said...

manu flopping all over the court against lebron will be comical

blue said...

The east is weak...Stern should just cancel the finals and sent the trophy to San Antonio right now.

THE CHAMP. said...

spurs vs. cavs = spurs in 4
spurs vs. pistons = spurs in 5

THE CHAMP. said...

is it too late to move the finals to versus and show the spelling bee replay?

El Padrino said...

"Spurs still kick the shit out of whoever wins this series."

More the reason why i love gambling, i hope the Cavs win
becasue at least the Pistons have a shot at the Spurs

if the cavs win i'm buyin an porsche

THE CHAMP. said...

hibatchi!

THE CHAMP. said...

"if the cavs win i'm buyin an porsche"

that's why your my financial advisor. you can't get that kind of guarantee with a porsche.

May be the greatest comment ever for you ELP, but I actually had to talk to the Douce Bag. He called me and told me to post on here to tell you (ELP) to fuck off for picking up Pods...I told him i wouldn't do it...but to point out that comment wasn't 100% good for all I felt it was necessary

I'll rep for Ripken's streak. How can you not be impressed by that?

He played a demanding position and played it well. He was one of the first "big" shortstops.

Ripken's streak will never be broken either.

Iam a horrible lover said...

wyclef in a leather spiderman jacket has to be high on the list.

ebntx said...

yea billy ripken was pretty good.

"Still not impressed by consecutive games played streak."

is this a legit "I'm not impressed" or just haterade?

I can respect a haterade "I'm not impressed".

Iam a horrible lover said...

i can respect a longevity streak over a streak that u can attain by taking drugs.

blue said...

I think the consecutive games played streak is a wonderful feat in and of itself, but that alone does not make a player a hall of famer.

Iam a horrible lover said...

thats not a slight against drugs though..


kids, DO drugs. drop out of school, go straight to the pros.

jugdish said...

Sometimes the drugs help longevity...don't steroids help someone heal faster?

blue said...

what if it was revealed that the only way ripken could've had that streak was because he was 'roiding up? I mean that's what roids do, help you heal faster and have more endurance.

El Padrino said...

i was thinking what jug was thinking

El Padrino said...

and dont forget about amphetametaphines and/or greenies

isiah thomas said...

I think the consecutive games played streak is a wonderful feat in and of itself, but that alone does not make a player a hall of famer.

You're acting like Ripken was a bum. Let me link his stats.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I think the consecutive games streak undoubtedly gives you auto-HOF cred.

isiah thomas said...

that's the thing, who knows, maybe he did take something to gain an edge, you can't rule anything out at this point.

El Padrino said...

i can be in the lineup everyday but i cant hit a hr every 14 at bats or whatever it works out to be

ripken's thing was speacial though cuz it's not like he sucked, he was great at that position for a long time

Iam a horrible lover said...

if youre in someone's starting lineup for 15+ years and at a prime position, theres a good chance that u might be HOF material.

blue said...

i'm not saying that ripken doesn't belong in the HOF, i just said that if juan pierre broke his record it wouldn't put him in the HOF.

isiah thomas said...

you're acting like Ripken is AC Green.

but Ripken killed pussy.

jugdish said...

Ripkin

El Padrino said...

of course he's a hof'er
he was the first breed of SS that actually hit

Iam a horrible lover said...

i feel what blue is saying.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"i'm not saying that ripken doesn't belong in the HOF, i just said that if juan pierre broke his record it wouldn't put him in the HOF."

Yes it would.

blue said...

AC green sat on the bench with a beanie baby during the playoffs one year.

tem said...

"I think the consecutive games streak undoubtedly gives you auto-HOF cred."

I agree with that. Since it was like a billion years of playing in a row.

But I still ain't impressed.
