HAHA, Latrell Sprewell, trying everything to slow down Vince Carter pulled Vince's shorts down while Carter was trying to move to the hole without the ball.
Gary Payton will be on the set of "Inside the NBA" for a few days this week. Today, Charles Barkley found a Viagra pen on the desk when he got to the table. I figured since Payton missed out on the playoffs this year, he's been doing other things on his lonely nights. You know they do call him "The Glove". Hey Payton, don't forget, No Glove, No Love!
Jalen Rose has elected to take the responsibilites of guarding Allen Iverson. That was a mistake. Not only did Iverson have half of the Sixers' points in the First Quarter (13), he forced Rose to the bench early in the second quarter after drawing 2 fouls from him.
Just to give you and idea of how fast Allen Iverson really is, a fresh Travis Best came into the game in the second quarter. 5 minutes into the quarter, Iverson drew 2 fouls from him and 3 fouls from Jalen Rose. AI has forced Travis Best to foul out in 2 of the 3 games of the series. Travis Best is definetly not the slowest guy in the world and Iverson is making him look like a turtle.
Has Austin Croshere been looking ahead to facing the Raptors and viewing some Vince Carter highlights or something? Someone's gotta tell him that his dunks are ugly and to at least make 50% of them. But I gotta give him props for taking it to the rack while being guarded by Mutumbo... Hold on, he's being guarded by Tyronne Hill. I take that back.
Aight, What's up wid Reggie Miller trying to sport a "Gotee"? Oh, I know, he's trying to divert some attention away from his ears.
Well, not much to say except Bye Bye Magic. Although you can expect big things from them next year with Hill at the point, and Mcgrady and Miller at the 2 and 3 position. Maybe they can snab another one of Vince's little helpers, in Antonio Davis.
Hey, gotta give Daryl Armstrong some props for not crying for the first time in 3 years after being eliminated from playoffs/contention.
Mad props to Pat Garrity for his dunk over Glenn Robinson. You know Garrity's putting it all on the line when you see him dunking!
So much for Flip Saunder's prediction of beating the Spurs. Although the T-Wolves had balanced scoring from Garnett, Brandon, and Sczcerbiak, the T-Wolves still lost the game and the series. It's all downhill from here, as the T-Wolves are hampered by Garnett's huge contract. This means they can't attract any free agents. Another negative is that they have no draft picks due to the Joe Smith incident. I expect the Rockets to take their spot in the playoffs next year.
On "Inside the NBA", Kenny "The Jet" Smith has given out another Nickname, dubbing Tracy Mcgrady "The Problem Child" because he causes so much problems to people on and off the court. You don't believe me? Just ask Glen "Puppy Dog".... I mean "Big Dog" Robinson
Daryl Armstrong was asked on how he felt about Tracy Mcgrady's tremendous playoff series against the Bucks and he replied "It reminds me of the time in the 97 playoffs when Penny put up 42 and 41 points". Of course he was referring to Penny's series against the Heat where he led all players in scoring in the playoffs, including Michael Jordan.
Also on "Inside the NBA", they had a special on Rodney Rogers and how he bought a "dump truck" company. I think some of the garbage in the line of work has rubbed off on his game, after seeing his 5 point performance Sunday.
I just witnessed the most bizarre thing. Glen Rice outjumped Vince Carter for an Offensive Rebound and put the ball back in the hoop. Hasn't Rice had like Mad Knee Surgeries? Vince was also held to 5-21 shooting. Please don't tell me that was due to Glen Rice's Tenacious defense!
Vince Carter has got to be the worst defensive player I've ever seen, letting Glen Rice shoot 8-12, scoring 19 points on Vince.
HAHA, Tracy Mcgrady has outscored Glen Robinson 112 - 32 in the Magic-Bucks series, and Mcgrady seems satisfied by this calling the Robinson "Puppy Dog". Of course he was mocking Robinson's nickname "Big Dog".
Although Tracy Mcgrady has been talking trash throughout the series, he knows when to keep his mouth closed. Did anybody see that dunk by Ray Allen over an embarrassed Mcgrady? If anyone can find that specific game clip online, send it to me at APENNYFAN@aol.com. For those of you who missed it, Allen drove baseline with about 20 seconds in regulation and threw one down over Mcgrady.
