Discuss the West here.
lemme remind you - shaq trade was initiated to find response to Tim "nodunk" Duncan. I do not believe that it works but still try to cach this game - since no LP for POs - somehow.
CP3 gave Jason Kidd a lesson in PG 101 today.
I have said it before and I will say it again, Paul is this years MVP, however, Kobe will win it.
Those who voted against CP3 ought to be ashamed, and reprimanded for their transgression.
Chris Paul has got to be one of my favorite players, period. Damn that kid can ball.
Let me also say that after the first quarter and a half I thought New Orleans were complete goners. They just didn't look like they had enough weapons to keep up with the Mavericks. But they turned on their defense and Paul remembered that he's amazing, and it was awesome watching them turn it around and into a blow-out.
What can remove the T-Mac curse? It`s still early but all signs point to another 1st round exit for this guy. If the Rockets don`t win game 2 they will be swept, because the Jazz rarely lose at home.
I picked the Jazz in 5 games!!!!!!
Utah - Houston. Houston comes so close but It almost appears that no matter what the Rockets do they cannot get over the hump. Now they have to go into Utah and try at least for the split to stay alive. This could be a sweep.
Yeah max, I just finished watching that game too. I thought it was a great game. Deron Williams is out of control fantastic. Utah in general is very impressive I think. Solid. I feel bad for Houston being so short-handed without Yao and Rafer Alston. Utah had a great game plan as far as just coming at them relentlessly.
I'd love to see Utah win the West. Or Phoenix. That would be way cool. No Lakers. No Spurs.
Our man Memo with 16 and 16. Who said he was soft?
yes Utah looks very good. Houston can still comeback but they just don't enough I think. For Me, I don't know if I have a preference in the West. Except it would be nice not to see the Spurs again.
alot of talk on the shows this morning about the Flop of the night by Utah last night... the more i see/hear the worst I feel about the call. As the replays show the ref who made the call wasn't even watching the play he was looking at the feet of Tmac checking if he was behind the 3 point line. The only reason the call was made was because this body went flying in front of him. It was a late whistle which add to the fact the ref didn't see the play. Heck he was pushed so lightly that even me weighing 120 lbs soaking wet could have held my ground against that "bump". I missed the 4th quarter but the calls for the 1st 3 seemed to be letting them play and then to all but help decide a game like that just bothers me.
Views from others?
I think it was a flop but also a foul. Good call.
And I despise the Jazz.
