Jug's NBA Preview

Ladies and Gentlemen, I proudly give you Jug's NBA Season Preview, presented by our boys Deke (Eastern Conf. with seeding help from Keef) and Tyler (Western Conf.).

Eastern Conference

Okay, here goes…Keith’s Playoff Picks in ( * )


Atlantic

1) I hate to say it, but Boston will win the division. KG, Shuttlesworth, and PP are just too much for just about any one. Even if 2 of the 3 have bad nights, the other can pick up the slack. I endured a poor-man’s version of this in 00-01 with Ray, Big Dog, and Sam. You just figured they’d win. Anywho, Boston is in my top 2 despite having Doc Rivers as their coach. (3)

2) Number two in the Atlantic shall be the New Jersey Nets this is pretty much their last go ‘round on their current horses, and if they did in fact clear that room for Kobe, watch out. Okay, I’m a little sloppy right now. I got way into that last sentence. Where am I? Yes, the Nets. Same team as last year. I thought they’d be good. They weren’t. So, I’m giving them a last shot here. (7)

3) I gotta put the Runnin’ Raptors in the three-hole. I was super luke-warm on this team last year, but they showed me. They just seem way too soft to make any real noise in the playoffs. A bunch of foreigners, Bosh, and the porcelain doll TJ Ford. Really, he’s one drive to the can away from death. I, like many others, have no clue what kind of system they run there. Who gives a shit. Raptors #3.

4) Here I’ll put everybody’s favorite team, the New York Knickerbockers . Again, I have little to no information about the Knicks. Will Eddy Curry & Zach Randolph be able to play nice? Is Zeke completely insane? Will he get fired? Why do New Yorkers hold Seph Marbury in such high REVerance? Still, I don’t like the Knicks.

5) Last place brings us to “That Team You Only Notice Because Of Fantasy Implications”. The 6 & 76ers. That’s pretty dog-shit team ya got there, Rev. Iguodala, Dalembert, Andre Miller. And Korver if you’re desperate for threes. Yeesh.

Central

1) I gotta stick with Deetroit in the 1 hole. Nothing has told me not to. Chauncey’s getting older, Hashweed is up there, too. They’re bitter with the coach too, right? Maybe I’m wrong. Either way, I think Detroit wins the Central. (2)

2) The Bulls are the play here, In my mind. Bronnie had a nice run last year, but I think Chicago has the best cast in the Central. Deng is a certified stud, Nocioni plays that same game. Gordon is pretty fuckin’ good, too, even though the always shop him. I’m getting pretty inebriated now. Thoughts are thin.(5)

3) Mmmmmm…Garlic cheese bread. Oh, the Cavaliers go here. LeBron has a nice bit of a team here, I guess. Big Z as the lumbering C, Drew Gooden’s haircut as the banger, Andy Verejao as the energy guy, Law Hughes as the 2nd banana, & Danny Gibson as the emerging point. Not much to wade through in the East, possible Conference Champs. (1)

4) I’ve got to say…What a rivalry I have with Freak. Seriously. Brewers vs Cubs, Pats vs Colts, and now Bucks/Pacers. Really, I’m just putting the Bucks here for homerism’s sake. Even though they have a good assembly of talent, they probably won’t do shit.

5) Pacers. I don’t really thing they’re that bad. They have plenty talent, maybe they just need the coaching, like the Bucks. Murph Dirt, JO, Tinsley, and yes, Dunleavy. He’s actually pretty good. I like the core.

Southeast

1) Man, the Southeast is wide open. I’m gonna take Gil and the Wiz. They just seem like the right pick here. Orlando doesn’t seem to have continuity & Miami is minus Wade for a while (And Shaq sucks). I’m looking for 30 out of Gil, 18 for Butler and…well, I lost my train of thought. Good enough. (4)

2) I’m putting Orlando here. I really think they can get it going this year with Howard, Lewis, Nelson & Turkoglu. There’s really no rhyme or reason to this, just a gut feeling. Hmm. Another team I didn’t like last year, but think will be decent this year. Cutler makes a pretty good play-fake. Penalties are killing the Pack. It should be 21-7. Orlando. (6)

3) And here goes the slipper of the year. Gimpy superstar, fat Shaq, nobody else? Sliide to the left! Wow. That was gay. I’ll leave it in as evidence to my state of mind. I think Riles may very well have a coronary this year. Miami Heat. What the fuck is he going to do with Mark Blount? Is Alonzo still around? I think he might be their best center. No kidding. I see them sucking. b) And why does Wade get calls that MJ couldn’t get? That’s bullshit.

4) Speaking of MJ, his little pet project goes here. Charlotte seems to me as a franchise constructed properly. Even though Sean May is out for the year, they’re a frisky squad. Young, athletic, and well balanced at all their positions. Look for them to fall just short of a playoff spot, barring a devastating injury.

5) Atlanta. Lots of forwards. Bad coach. No fans. Everybody there plays to get out. They suck. I’m hammered. (8)


And no, I didn’t feel like seeding the playoffs. That’s what Keith is for.


Western Conference

1. Dallas
The top three teams in the West are kind of hard to rank. I really want to put someone else in here as #1 because of Dallas' meltdown in the playoffs, but I can't decide who to put here instead of them. I think they start out the season on a hot streak to try and to prove to anyone who will listen that their playoff debacle was just historically bad matchup. I can't say that I'm impressed that they basically just stood pat with their roster, you'd figure with what happened in the playoffs that they'd mix it up a little, but they didn't. Maybe that works to their advantage because they've all played together for awhile. Lil General's gonna have to continually stick his boot their their ass to get them to play, but he basically had to do that all last season, so it's business as usual.

2. Suns
Am I the only one that really likes that Grant Hill signing? They got rid of the two dudes named Jones that weren't really giving them a whole lot and add a big name in Hill. Of course you're not guaranteed that he's going to play the entire season, but if D'antoni really watches Hill's minutes, I think he could play the entire season and have an impact. Hill doesn't have to be "the guy" like he was in Detroit, or even "the guy-behind-the-guy" like he was in the rare ocassion he was able to play in Orlando. All he has to be this time around is "the guy-behind-the-guy-behind-the-guy-behind-the-guy-behind-the-guy", aka: the fifth or sixth option. I think that's the perfect role for him to play at this point in his career. I like the signing, and I think it will work out for the Suns.

Another move that I think everyone else is wrong about is the Kurt Thomas trade. Everyone has been making a big deal that they traded away their only low block defender, but here are some stats: 67 games played, 18.1 minutes per game, 4.6 ppg, 5.7 rpg and .4 bpg. That's what Thomas did last year. He was much better the year before in less appearances, but he's 35 and only getting older. At $10mill per year, I think they can get that kind of production from other players. He only played 18 minutes a game, and yeah, almost six rebounds a game for those kinds of minutes are great, but I really don't thin this is going to impact their team a whole lot. I really think they dealt him because they didn't think he could keep up anymore. Unless someone gets injured his departure doesn't really effect them that much.

One reason I can't put them at #1 is because of The Matrix. You just don't know how that situation is going to shake out. There's been a conflict between him and Stoudamire from the jump and he wants money that the Suns don't have or think he deserves. I don't think he's a locker-room poison, but he's definitely not going to help out in that regard either. Do they keep him? Do they trade him? Who knows. And that's why I can't put them #1.

3. Spurs
I can't put them #1 or #2 because their starters don't play enough minutes during the season. It's a smart strategy to avoid injuries and roll into the playoffs, but it sure doesn't make them all that exciting. Neither does their style of play. If they make the finals again, I think we're going to see the opposite of what happened with baseball, opening rounds on ABC with the Finals on TNT. How awesome was that Warriors/Mavs first round series? How horrible was that Spurs/Cavs Finals? Solid team, you know they're in contention for a championship as long as their three best players are in their primes, but they're boring as hell.

4. Nuggets
This year, we'll finally get a full season with the entire team. I thing they make a leap, but I still think they're just below the big three. It's too bad that next year "The George Karl Implosion" will start to take effect. Kmart is supposed to be back, and I think they've got enough depth to bring him back slowly. Play him 10-15 minutes a game to start and see what happens, don't start him out at 30+ minutes a game. I really think that Camby's health determines where this team finishes. You could see it last year. He dominated when Melo was out, and even when they were full strength, if he missed some games, they struggled. The crazy thing is, I haven't mentioned their two best players yet. It's going to be interesting to see if Melo and A.I. can get enough touches for the entire season, or if you start to see a little friction there. Especially in the beginning of the season because they let Steve Blake go and the guy they signed to replace him (Chucky Atkins) is out 6-8 weeks. That means A.I. at the point, which is either a good thing for Melo/Iverson's relationship, or a bad thing. We'll see. I think they figure it all out, including the Kmart/rotation problem and everyone wins. Again, it's too bad things are going to start falling apart for them next year because I could see this team doing some damage.

5. Jazz
Have Kirilenko and Sloan kissed and made up? Does anyone outside of Utar really care? Personally, I would look to trade Kirilenko. You've got Milsap who's just waiting to break out; he's got a way smaller contract, plays just as well when he gets the minutes, and he doesn't whine. Get something, anything for Kirilenko while you still can. The rest of the team is solid, with Boozer, Okur and Deron Williams; the knock on their squad has always been the shooting guard position. Is Ronnie Brewer the answer? I don't know, but he's probably just as serviceable as any of the others that they've started in the position over the last couple of years. Big man depth is another problem. I think they're good, just not great.

6. Rockets aka "Team Shaky"
I don't get all the hype behind the Rockets. T-Mac's back is iffy, Yao hasn't been able to make it through a full season, you've got a brand new coach, which means a brand new system, no one's ever heard of your starting power forward, your starting point guard is in legal trouble and it's no secret you're trying to move him to play the other overpriced PG you traded for AND you're in the Southwest Division with the Mavs and the Spurs. You also can't get out of the first round. I see them putting it together at some point and making a run, but then injuries are gonna happen. I just really don't see them as part of the elite in the West. I think 5th or 6th is just about right. If injuries hit them hard, they could slide a lot lower. I'm just not impressed.

7. Warriors
When Baron Davis is healthy, they're amazing. The problem is, Baron Davis doesn't seem to stay healthy. Nelly also got the money he was looking for in the offseason, so you could argue that he doesn't have the same motivation that he had last year. And, his teams have a habit of shining brightly before they burn out. I think they do better than they did last year, but as with the Rockets, I just can't say they're in the top tier. Yet. I like their team, and if Mullen can resist the urge to tinker, I'd say they'll be able to make a good run in the next couple of years. They've got a lot of good, young players, with some older (as well as not so old) vets. THIS YEAR, I don't think they make the giant jump everyone's expecting, there will be a little bit of a hangover before they put it all together. Next year could be the year.

8. New Orleans
I just don't know who to put eighth. I like the Horents, I just don't like-them, like-them. Peja's going to have to give them more than 13 games and that's why they signed Mo Pete as a backup plan. They started out on fire when everyone was healthy, but then almost everyone on their roster went down at some point. Peja, David West, CP3, they were just decimated by injuries. I think they can slide into the eight spot, they've got a lot of talent, they've just got to gel together and find their way.

9. Lakers
Man, this team is a mess. Including management. I think Kobe stays for the entire season and they move him after the season's over and that doesn't help their team's development a whole lot. On the trade front, the equation of getting salaries to match up with the Lakers front office situation and Kobe's trade veto does not equal a trade in their near future. Just getting the salaries to match up is hard enough, when you add all of those other factors, it's approaching impossible. If Mamba stays injury free, I think he reverts back to the Kobe from two years ago, which would both help and hurt his trade situation. Lakers could demand more (or justify what they're currently asking), and he would probably veto because it wouldn't leave the team he would be going to with enough talent to contend.

As far as the team goes, they didn't do a whole lot in the offseason. They signed Derek Fisher. Yep, that was pretty much it. No big trade, no big free agent signing. Kobe doesn't seem to understand that when you don't have any money, you can't sign any big free agents. I hate the term, "it is what it is", but the Lakers are what they are and I think all of the turmoil they've got going on doesn't make them a playoff team.

10. Sonics
The Sonics have an interesting team. Durant has a little bit of an ankle problem to start the season, but hopefully, he'll get over it and immediately show why he's going to be ROY. I like that they didn't keep Rashard Lewis, he wanted way too much money, and I like that they were able to turn it into a trade exception and a pick. They also moved Ray Allen and his giant contract for eventual cap relief (Szcerzerbiak) and a NICE young player (Jeff Green). I think they could move past the Lakers if things really start clicking and Carlesimo can figure out a solid game plan. One weakness I see is point guard play. They just don't have an obvious starter in my view and all three guys are spotty. If they can somehow trade for a better option or Carlesimo can figure out a system that minimizes their point guards (a motion offense, maybe?), they could really make some noise. In two years they can also sign a huge free agent when Wally and Wilcox come off the books. They've also got Kurt Thomas for a year and that will really help them with their toughness and front court depth. I think they're a really good team to watch. Too bad you're probably going to have to watch them in Oklahoma.

11. Kings
I had this team a little higher, but then Bibby tore up his thumb. And Brad Miller suddenly looks like he's 97 years old. I have no idea what they're going to do about these problems. They could finish a lot lower, but look at the other teams that are left. I still think the Kings have slightly better talent than the teams listed below. They've got to figure some stuff out in the offseason, like if they're going to extend Artest, and stay in Sacto. They need a lot of front court help and they don't have a whole lot of assets to trade for that. They're going to have to build through the draft because it doesn't look like they're going to be able to sign an impact player for another couple of years. They'll have a ton of room to sign players in 2009/2010, but it's the now that they've gotta worry about.

12. Trailblazers

I think the Blazers could be headed back to a top three pick. They really didn't improve their team all that much, so you're basically looking at +/- a couple of wins here. Oden is out for the year, they traded away a 20/10 guy and their best post player and their big free agent signing was a guy that they traded away a couple of years ago. If Darius Miles makes a comeback, I guess that's a bonus. I wouldn't expect a whole lot from them though, I doubt they finish better than their record from last year.

13. Clippers
I don't know where to put the Clippers. Obviously, their #1 guy, Elton Brand, is out for about six months so that's really tough to deal with. Their #2 guy, Corey Magette, could be traded by the deadline. Their point guard of the future tore up his knee and no one knows if he's going to play this year or what kind of player he's going to be when he comes back (I'm just going to say this again; they could have had A.I.). Add in a creaky backcourt (Cassel, Mobley), and lack of a solid post game (Kamen is it with Brand out) and things aren't looking so good. When Brand comes back they could make a run, but I don't expect Magette to be there when he gets back and that's a lot of stuff for Dunleavy to figure out. They've got a lot of decisions to make at the end of the year, and they have to put together a trade for Magette.

14. Grizzles
Things are looking up for the Grizz, but they're still a bad team. They've got a bad contract or two ("The Janitor's" contract immediately comes to mind) but they've got some really nice young talent. And Pau Gasol. This is a team that is really going to struggle with trying to find an identity, but I think that if they can keep their core together, then make a trade or sign a free agent, they could make a run at some point in the next couple of years. I want to put them higher, but they're just so young.

15. Timberwolves
I actually think that the T'Wolves could surprise a lot of people and finish better than last in the West. But as of right now, they've got a lot of things working against them. A. Their team sucks. B. They haven't played a whole lot together and their coach has to figure out just what the hell they're going to do for the season. C. Their GM is a maniac. Looking at their roster right out, it's insane. McHale was like a fantasy owner that went crazy and just wanted to see how many different trades he could pull off. They've also got a couple of bad contracts that they McHale himself signed, so it still looks like it's going to take awhile to turn this thing around. I really like Al Jefferson and I think he's going to be one of the few bright spots in their season. Same thing with Randy Foye. If they can build around those two, they've got something. But they have to wait out some contracts and decide what to do with some problem players (Telfair, Walker). They've got a lot of work to do, but if McHale can stop making a trade every other week as well as stop signing guys to dumb contracts, that's a start. It's still going to take a couple of years.

"keef you don't have CHI in the playoffs?"

I knew I was forgetting a team. I was really just going off the top of my head. Remove Miami and put Chicago at #5.

Tyler said...

I just realized I put Sacto WAY too high.

Keith S said...

LoV is the new WWL

JFreak said...

The Pacers aren't that good, but they'll mess around with the 8 seed again this year.

At least they haven't traded away their #1 pick for next year.

Spaceman Spiff said...

sooooooo the rockets aren't gonna win the championship?

CMFost said...

Those are not real but they are spectacular.

Thanks for the relink Blue!!

CMFost said...

How do Champ and Dre give up 2 long TD passes in one game?

CMFost said...

Poor Grady Little he is about to lose his job because of Joe Torre for the second time.

I wonder how A-Fraud will look in Dodger blue next year, will he wear matching lipstick

El Padrino said...

knicks are making the playoffsyou nuts

CMFost said...

Wow, you guys comment really slowly in the morning. Are any of you awake?

El Padrino said...

kim k pics, i'm disappointed
her sex tape is better for sure

jugdish said...

No I'm not awake. I've been up all night writing the NBA preview.

El Padrino said...

Torre hates Arod dumbass

El Padrino said...

nice work jug, T, keef and deke

tem said...

cummy, it is 9am and we are all unemployed guys who live in basements, why would we be awake?

El Padrino said...

dre' bly is expensive toast

CMFost said...

NBA Finals -

Bulls (lead by Kobe) Over the Suns

tem said...

add the sex tape to movies tem has never seen.

blue said...

from tyler's post re: Grant Hill

""the guy-behind-the-guy" like he was in the rare ocassion he was able to play in Orlando. All he has to be this time around is "the guy-behind-the-guy-behind-the-guy-behind-the-guy-behind-the-guy""

Did tyler just "out" grant hill? I guess he did go to duke with Bobby Hurley and Laettner

blue said...

dre bly is a gambling corner...so he gets burned on occassion, and it was actually decent coverage until he turned and looked for the ball, and then Jennings turned on the speed.

Champ is in a tough position this year, he has to help way too much with the run because the run defense sucks, so that makes him much more susceptible to the play fake as opposed to years past...I blame Jim Bates.

blue said...

I liked jug's preview...

tem said...

they mayor is here this morning.

when you see him do you:

say good morning mr. coleman

say good morning mayor coleman

or just walk on by


i just walked on by.

blue said...

i'll have my own NBA preview up today...or not...probably not because i'm lazy

tem said...

cummy almost dropped a natty z on us. (fyi cummy, that is 4 posts in a row all one minute apart. it is part of lov terminology)

blue said...

although, i'd have the nuggets at 3, and the Mavs at 4, and bump suns to 1 and the spurs to 2.

Mavs need to re-tool, and I see avery johnson wearing on them.

blue said...

re: Mayor

is this mayor mccheese, and if it is, you bite him

tem said...

i would put the nets at 1 and the thrashers at 2.

tem said...

no, it is the real mayor of columbus.

if it were mayor mccheese i would have known all proper protocols.

blue said...

thrashers are a strong team...the 14ers should be in these rankings too

blue said...

one last thought to add to Jug's thoughts on Houston. They have Steve Francis...if ever there was a lockerroom cancer, it's him...and he's already starting to bitch about playing time and the season hasn't started.

tem said...

i definitely have not played enough minutes.

blue said...

samsonite

tem said...

today is starting off slowly. rev seems unattainable.

blue said...

it's the redsox parade

(s)

blue said...

well it was a nice run whilst it lasted.

and I have a 3 hour meeting today, so I won't help the cause

blue said...

we'll need weazy to pick up his game

tem said...

we need another good slapper.

tem said...

maybe LOV AD with some hoops will save the day.

El Padrino said...

tps is a raving lunatic

jugdish said...

"we need another good slapper."

Zeke will be here soon...just tell him to kiss your ass.

His response will be something like:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

You're not bringing your A game today tem...real original. douchebag.

Big Brother's Brother said...

i need a bad pic of kelly clarkson. my buddy digs her, its his birthday.. i must haterade like any good pal would do.

blue said...

who is on tonight?

if it's the suns, you know that zeke will get it to rev all alone

blue said...

jug knows his slapper starters

jugdish said...

Bodog's early line on the Pats/Colts game is Pats -6. That was yesterday actually, now its 6 and a half.

tem said...

jug i don't need to now, you already started the slapper when he arrives.

tem said...

bbb, spiffsg is your man for bad kelly pics.

or maybe it is lou.


one of those guys has them sitting around their desktop waiting for times like this.

along with kirsten dunst.

blue said...

Kelly Clarkson for BBB

peruse at your own risk

Big Brother's Brother said...

yeah the spiff-gee signal has been officially plugged in.

jugdish said...

I started betting on games this season on bodog...small bets, harmless, just to make it interesting.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Tyler was clearly showing off.

I wish I were a skilled typist so I could write longer posts.

I bet it took us the same amount of time to do.

CMFost said...

with a little gym time Kelly would not be that bad. Ok maybe a lot of gym time.

CMFost said...

and with a little help from the plastic surgeon she would be better then OK

CMFost said...

actually what happen to her, I thought she had lost a lot of weight

CMFost said...

So, Yes or No on the Red Sox Parade live blog?

jugdish said...

She found it...it was in the fridge.

CMFost said...

Portland @ San Antonio - Would be a much better game if Oden was playing.

Big Brother's Brother said...

her in the water is the pic of choice so far. i'm thinking.. "it's your birthday and i'm all wet!" for a caption will work.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I wouldn't mind

blue said...

that's a good caption

Big Brother's Brother said...

parade blog on yours.. we wanna be able to go back and re-read every second of it! otherwise it'll just get lost in the comments..

blue said...

weazy is going to look at those Kim K pictures and say "so? she's not that hot"

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Good form, BBB

jugdish said...

Don't forget your pink BoSox hat while you blog.

blue said...

i'm not sure why they need a parade. A "true" fan would have been at the games cheering for them

El Padrino said...

"I started betting on games this season on bodog...small bets, harmless, just to make it interesting."


welcome aboard, any questions feel free

Big Brother's Brother said...

maybe "your birthday makes me soggy" instead.

CMFost said...

EP any advice on betting NBA games? Other than finding out who the referee is.

tem said...

"actually what happen to her, I thought she had lost a lot of weight"

she goes up and down all the time.

jugdish said...

Football seems a lot easier than basketball or baseball. With those two I'd probably start betting on over/under.

Big Brother's Brother said...

cummy, always lay money on the whitewash teams.

tem said...

isn't it nearly impossible to collect your winnings on those interweb sites?

tem said...

""it's your birthday and i'm all wet!""

is a good caption.

blue said...

you don't collect your winnings, you re-invest them.

in the meantime bodog has your cash invested in some international hedge fund making 19% a year on it.

or, they are financing colombian drug lordz...either way it's a win/win.

CMFost said...

it is pretty hard but once you build up enough money they will always send you a check. F'n US gov't screwing up our illegal oversee internet gambling.

jugdish said...

Probably. All I did was put in $20 in a bodog account at the beginning of the season, and I bet 1-5 bucks per game. I'm still playing on the same 20...nothing risked there.

I was happy to win 95 cents last night when Favre threw that last TD. I'm a high roller.

CMFost said...

It screwed up all the poker sites I use to play at, now only a few them will even take us customers but I got one that the best of both worlds. I can bet on sports and play poker at it

blue said...

I tried to play online poker awhile back, the stupid place wouldn't take my money.

ToddPacker said...

tps is winning big this week

a lot of it might be how you tried to fund your account, a lot of banks blog credit card transactions from gambling sites the trick is finding the once that process the transaction and make it look like something else.

fulltiltpoker.com does it and normally play on intertops.com

What is the o/u on the number of games Doc rivers coaches before he gets fired?

blue said...

82

blue said...

he won't get fired this year...don't believe what El Retardo is selling

blue said...

El Retardo=SG=Bill Simmons...for cumfast's understanding

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Doc will not be fired this year.

CMFost said...

I know you do not talk hockey but 4 days later this hit still has me pissed off.


f'n flyers

CMFost said...

What if the Celtics start say 8-12?

blue said...

some people like hockey...i believe TP and Beth are hockey fans

CMFost said...

I think anything less then making it to the Eastern Conference finals and Doc is gone.

blue said...

danny ainge won't fire Doc.

El Padrino said...

"EP any advice on betting NBA games? Other than finding out who the referee is."

I find to make the most money when I bet first halfs and quarters

Example: Suns are usually a team that start out very good so I would normally take them for the first half minus hlaf of whatever the entire game spread is.

I usually wait a couple of weeks to determine team strenghts and to track a couple of teams. If I know the Bulls are a 2nd half team (which last year they were) then I would wait for halftime and bet them for the 2nd half)

CMFost said...

I would not be to sure of that Blue.

CMFost said...

Danny is expecting big things out of this team and if they fail Doc heads will roll and maybe even Danny's

CMFost said...

But I am not falling for the hype I think the Celtics make to the Eastern Conference Finals but lose to Chicago.

CMFost said...

I would also watch out for Washington in the EAST, they were a good team until everyone got injured

jugdish said...

Did you know that Braile comes in different languages? I had never thought about that before...I thought it was universal.

CMFost said...



Lupica rips A-Fraud and BorASS a new one

El Padrino said...

The knicks can ball with any team in the east.

Forgot they got Randolph maybe?

i dont know why they are just being dismissed as if they are the hawks or slippers of old

I gtee a playoff berth this year, my guess is a lower half seed, anywhere from 5-7

blue said...

and starbury has God on his side now, so they're all good

tem said...

lupica is a joke.

i hate him and pretty much anyone that is on the Sports Reporters.

That show is garbage.

blue said...

lupica is short...short people are stupid

blue said...

transitive property...lupica is kod

blue said...

i mean stupid

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Lupica is the best.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Actually, Skip Bayless is my favorite journalist.

blue said...

the bestest?

El Padrino said...

S (i gotcha deke)

blue said...

PtP updated...i'm satisfied with today's post

blue said...

skip bayless is short too....why are all journalists short?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The Chairman is in the starting 5.

ns

blue said...

I saw that deke...it intrigues me.

I wonder if that was part of the handshake deal with China.

blue said...

so it's ozzie and the chairman, baldy and redd?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Bogut, Yi, Dez Mason, Redd, Mo Williams.

blue said...

charlie V > Yi

tem said...

wooden chair + 1.5 > Yi

blue said...

that's why he's "the chairman"

tem said...

indeed.

blue said...

fucking rockies don't just credit your creditcard for games not played. You have to send in your tickets and request a refund, and they'll mail you a check in 4-6 weeks.

that's bush league bullshit

Spaceman Spiff said...

chucky 'no brows' v isnt starting? fuck i have him in my money league

Big Brother's Brother said...

i got my Tiger Stadium seats delivered a couple days ago.

just sayin.

Spaceman Spiff said...

rockies dont know how to handle world series sales

CMFost said...

Blue knowing the Red Sox they will probably say something like turn your tickets in and we will give you tickets to a game against Tampa instead of a refund.

blue said...

"rockies dont know how to handle world series sales"

well for one they don't use ticketmaster, which is actually kind of nice...but their argument is that the person who originally purchased the ticket, might not be the person who ultimately has the ticket now...so if you bought your ticket from a broker or whatnot, you'll get your refund directly from the Rockies, not from stubhub et al.

Mills said...

I like how Jug did the East by division and the West by conference.

consistency > d -

Mills said...

so that makes him much more susceptible to the play fake as opposed to years past...I blame Jim Bates
------
Not Don Imus?

tem said...

i blame john lynch and his kids.

tem said...

the refund thing was funny when i was reading it when i trying to get tix to a game i had no intention of going to.

tem said...

HUNGRY

JFreak said...

AND LEAH

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"chucky 'no brows' v isnt starting? fuck i have him in my money league"


They promised Yi 25 minutes.

JFreak said...

Including the Patriots, the Colts have played a team that held or shared their division lead (at the time they played them) for 7 out of their 8 games.

blue said...

play Yi the entire first half and the first minute of the second half, then bench him

blue said...

excluding freak and cumfast...noone here gives a shit

isiah thomas said...

Those are not real but they are spectacular. -- Cumfast

I'd say Kim K's bres-a-sis are real.

anyone else?

isiah thomas said...

what is this LOV 101 day for cummy? figure shit out yourself queer.

blue said...

i think they're fake, I think she's admitted as much before...even amongst rumors of ass implants

CMFost said...

It is very easy to airbrush implant scares out of a picture. Those are most definetly fake and the are most definetly spectacular

blue said...

although, i'd say they look real in the pictures fo sho

blue said...

implant scars?

what is this 1975...nobody has implant scars anymore.

El Padrino said...

they are real
watch the sex tape

blue said...

the very last picture on that link is pretty definitive to me...fake tits don't lay like that

I take back my original statement of her admitting to implants

JFreak said...

Colts owner making some "special announcement" right now...

He looks like a mix between Willy Wonka and Elton John.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Kim's titties are real

blue said...

this is a good debate though

isiah thomas said...

did weasel really complain about the niba preview?

isiah thomas said...

Colts owner making some "special announcement" right now...

I always thought Peyton was gay, now we know.

cut that meat fruitloop.

blue said...

we need tem's opinion as he is the guy who always hooks up with the women with implants

isiah thomas said...

the way the titties lay looks natural.

isiah thomas said...

I'd say they look real

she's lifting her arm up so they don't sag that much, but there is still a sag.

JFreak said...

They apparently are raffling off 5 Super Bowl rings.

Not at great as I thought.

isiah thomas said...

although the roundness of the left bresticle in that pic makes you think they might be fake.

interesting.

JFreak said...

Their goal is to raise a million dollars for charity. So I guess it's okay.

blue said...

that's the picture that I was saying was "definitive proof"

as the referee would say "there is conclusive visual evidence that those breasts are real. By rule the ball is awarded to zeke"

isiah thomas said...

I'd need to motorboat those summbitches to know for sure. fo....sho....

blue said...

you motorboatin sumbitch

El Padrino said...

zeke you seen the ray j tape?

isiah thomas said...

just short clips of it, not the entire thing

Spaceman Spiff said...

real tit-tays, real ass, look at her sisters, all thick, ugliest one is borderline chubby

JFreak said...

Wiz at Pacers tomorrow.

That should be fun to watch.

blue said...

Spaceman Spiff said...

the thing about that seinfeld episode, teri hatcher tits are not spectacular, shes always had saggers/pancakes

blue said...

teri hatcher is a slut

Spaceman Spiff said...

blue, just enjoy the ride, especially if youre into vampire/zombie movies

Mills said...

the thing about that seinfeld episode, teri hatcher tits are not spectacular, shes always had saggers/pancakes
----------
truthy.

Spaceman Spiff said...

actually the prologue will probly show up online, like everything else

isiah thomas said...

I watched the HBO First Look at American Gangster.

TI, RZA and Common in this.

starting to get slightly worried.

Spaceman Spiff said...

TI plays a pitching prospect, nephew of denzel

NS

Spaceman Spiff said...

are there any pitchers in real life that are 5'6"

El Padrino said...

"EP, when 'i am legend' comes out, watch it in IMAX, they will be showing a 'dark knight' 8 minute prologue only then"

nice

Keith S said...

kod

El Padrino said...

the RZA was great in that Clive Owen/Jen Aniston flick

Spaceman Spiff said...

RZA was in derailed, i didnt peep that though, someone can give us critique

common was ok in smokin aces, movie was horrible though

how the fuck did mos def not get cast? is he outraged?

blue said...

keith is funny

Spaceman Spiff said...

EP comes through with said critique

Big Brother's Brother said...

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

The RZA is a master thespian

Keith S said...

Breaking news

tem said...

"we need tem's opinion as he is the guy who always hooks up with the women with implants"

those are not implants.

tem said...

kod has his own number?

blue said...

no

spiffg asked "are there any pitchers who are 5'6" tall" and Keith answered "kod"

isiah thomas said...

fyi: trades do not count towards your transaction limit in FNBA.

Keith S said...

"kod" was in reference to the comment above it. well, 2 above it.

blue said...

it was a hilarious joke, but I could see how it might not be understood

keith is before his time

Spaceman Spiff said...

rejoice blue,
oregon/asu will be on national TV, espn/abc got the rights
