Phil Jackson

I would pay to go see this guy talk.  He should be the Tony Robbins of the NBA, just go around giving lectures and motivationally speaking.

Is motivationally a word?  If not, I just made it up.

New potential investors are in the office today, means I had to comb my hairs and wear decent clothes.  I don't like this new me. (I even shaved)

I think i'm going to go see Hangover III this weekend.  I don't know if I am, but I think I will.

cmblue axed* me why I've been drinking so much lately.   Not that i'm drinking more often, just that i'm drinking more...She obviously didn't mind having the in-laws visiting for the last 2 weeks, by the end, I had to EP medicate.

Sports

Spurs showed they still have some gusto.  I don't know what gusto is, but they've got it.  Grizzlies were the 5 seed, and are playing like they were the 5 seed. Honestly, the Warriors were a better matchup for the spurs, and the thunder and nuggets would have been a better matchup.  The Grizz are playing the spurs kind of basketball.  You can't bullshit a bullshitter, and you can't play half court grind it out against the spurs.

Cavs won the draft lottery.  I guess they won't take Trey Burke because they already have uncle drew.  Maybe they can get Greg Oden

Mets suck

Rockies suck

Charles Woodson proved that all he cares about at this point is a paycheck.  Had an offer from the broncos, instead chose to go live near his winery (yes he owns a winery <a href="http://www.twentyfourwines.com/">here</a>) and play for the Raiders.  They'll win, what, 4 games next year.  He was pushing hard to get signed by the niners, I guess he really just wanted to live in the bay area.

Kevin Durant proves that he's the coolest dude in town.  He's the anti-LeBron.  He's the anti-kobe.  I doubt he'll ever leave OKC.

Interesting thing I read about Phil Jackson, if that group from Seattle had bought the Kings, he was offered any job he wanted with the organization.  So basically, he was trying to screw Sacramento again. He's about the most hated person, ever, in the history of Sacramento from the "rivalry" they had with the lakers in the late 90's early 00's.  I put rivalry in quotes because i'm not sure a rivalry can be one-sided.  But I really used to enjoy him wearing ear plugs at Arco Arena as the people behind him rang cowbells the entire game.

Hey Jim Boeheim, I realize that Melo gave you your only championship, so you're loyal to your guy.  But understand, Melo doesn't lead teams to championships, he doesn't need a better supporting cast, he needs somebody to lead the team for him.  Is Melo the most overrated player in the NBA?  He's in the conversation with the Dwight Howards and Blake Griffins and Chris Bosh's of the league.  He's probably less overrated than Bosh or Griffin, but in the same category as Howard....and maybe Derrick Rose (yeah, I said it you pussy).

melo is the best scorer in the league

i dont see how that is overrated, if he is mentioned in the top 5 echelon then yes i would consider that overrated

BLUE said...

he is mentioned in the top 5 echelon all the time


and he's not the best scorer in the league...he just scores the most points

Can't Catch A Break said...

is kevin durant overrated?

Keep chucking it up and eventually some go in, right?

I'd take Durant over Melo in a New York minute.

"I'd take Durant over Melo in a New York minute."

cuz he's younger

otherwise you are getting the same player

H Want Portugese Style said...

I readily admit I'm not as in to basketball as the rest of you, but even I understand enough to know if you're decently talented (which Melo is) and you take 30-40 shotsva game, you're gonna score a lot of points but not necessarily win a lot of games.

H Want Portugese Style said...

"otherwise you are getting the same player"

And you accuse me of not knowing what I'm talking about?

H Want Portugese Style said...

What are the attempts per game?

Can't Catch A Break said...

durant takes bad shots

all scorers do but when you shoot 45% or better over the course of 5+ seasons what coach is going to stop you from hoisting up bad shot especially when the rest of your team struggles to score

we saw this when Westbrook went down

BLUE said...

this last year, melo shot 45% from the field and 22 shots/game

Durant shot 51% from the field on 17 shots/game, and they scored roughly the same

Can't Catch A Break said...

they are the same "type" of player

dont fight it i would take Durant over Melo too but wouldn't expect a different result in the "leadership" department

whatever that is

I watched Ewing, a great leader, fail every year some more painful than others he missed a layup that cost them a Finals appearence what does that mean? does that he mean he sucks, does it mean he isnt a leader or does it mean he is overrated

"this last year, melo shot 45% from the field and 22 shots/game

just tells me Melo had to do more to help his team win

I;E he doesnt play with a dynamic point guard

Can't Catch A Break said...

and woodson ran ISO for him a decent amount of time

BLUE said...

I was once blinded by the Carmelo light as well

but now I can see


BLUE said...

"and woodson ran ISO for him a decent amount of time"


because that's all Carmelo can do.

do you ever see him moving without the ball, coming off of screens to get his shot? No, he calls for the ball, clears out his side and tries to play one-on-one all the time.

Can't Catch A Break said...

the question you are asking is he overrated and the answer is context

in what context

blake griffin is overrated because he does nothing but catch alley oops

Melo scores the basketball which is the point of the game, sometimes ineffeciently but i dont see how that matters

MJ always took the most shots (not comparing so relax)

BLUE said...

i'm just saying, he's not a top 5 player in the NBA, but he gets treated as such

Can't Catch A Break said...

do you ever see him moving without the ball, coming off of screens to get his shot? No, he calls for the ball, clears out his side and tries to play one-on-one all the time.


not all the time, i watched 80% of the games this year they ran alot of plays he set screens, sometimes he crashed the boards, he posted up smaller guys and he hit ALOT of transition threes

you watched him blue for awhile you cant tell me he isnt the best scorer in the league, or at least a top 3 scorer

if you pull up all the scoring champs how many of them are scrubs or overrated?

Can't Catch A Break said...

"i'm just saying, he's not a top 5 player in the NBA, but he gets treated as such"

agree, in this context he is overrated

1000% agree

BLUE said...

blake griffin is awful

tem said...

i think bosh is properly rated

tem said...

1) he looks like snoop

2) he has a role with the heat that is third wheel. he is overqualified for it, but still does it anyway.

3) he looks like snoop

4) 16 and 7 as a third wheel is good. 7 would be higher, but Miami doesn't miss shots so he misses out on some rebounding opportunities.

5) looks. like. snoop.

6) nobody mentions bosh as a top 10 guy anymore, because he isn't. he is like top 20 and that's what people say he is. he is properly rated.

tem said...

everyone says griffin is overrated....and he still is. he's like a top 50 guy.

BJ spends too much time watching videos of his sister.

the trailers are overrated.

tem said...

it isn't even a top 8 movie this summer.

tem said...

it has bomb written all over it.

BLUE said...

I like the superman trailers


it looks better than the most recent crap they put out with the name superman on it

plus it has Russell Crowe, and everything he does is great

he doesn't make shitty movies

tem said...

"it looks better than the most recent crap they put out with the name superman on it"

true. but so what? it still sucks.

the other stuff was so bad that this is better, but it still sucks.

tem said...

"will make a fortune

FORTUNE"

negative ghostrider. it is going to be a flop.

it has kevin costner in it, that's probably bad.

tem said...

it will make what you and i consider a fortune, but it will fall short of studio expectations.

tem said...

the best thing it has going for it is that it is being released mid june and won't have to fight Iron Man 3, Wolverine, Hangover 3, Star Trek, etc.

it'll top the box office for 1 week then lose its spot to Monsters University.

Can't Catch A Break said...

this thing is one of the most anticipated movies of this year and the third re-boot of superman

gonna work

tem said...

i'd bet if we can agree on what is a flop.

the brendan routh superman movie made gobs of money, but it still sucked and was a flop.

green lantern made money, it was a flop too.

tem said...

it won't be a top 5 grossing movie this year.

Keef said...

gross

Can't Catch A Break said...

i think it will make 300MM on the low end, not sure where that would put it in top 3 grossing

Can't Catch A Break said...

*top 5

Can't Catch A Break said...

last year at 300MM it would be 6th

BLUE said...

if it doesn't do well, Russell crowe will stand in front of the fans like this

Can't Catch A Break said...

i would never refer to a top 6 gross movie as a flop

tem said...

if you thought it was going to be #1 and it turned out to be #6 it would be a flop.

After launching deliberations Tuesday afternoon, a jury weighing whether or not Jodi Arias will be sentenced to death has announced they are unable to reach a unanimous decision.
After briefly entering the courtroom just before noon on Wednesday, a judge ordered them to continue deliberating.
Under Arizona law, if the jury cannot reach a unanimous decision on sentencing, the panel will be dismissed and jury selection would begin anew, to seat another panel to hear arguments only regarding Arias' sentence. If a second panel were unable reach a unanimous agreement, the judge would sentence Arias to life in prison, with or without the possibility of release after 25 years.
