Wow. That guy is seriously overrated. Reference my post two years ago: Mike Brown is a Glorified Cheerleader. Yes the Cavs had great records but they also had Lebron James. And good assistant coaching staff. But their failures in the postseason can be directly attributed to a poor head coach. This is the wrong guy to lead the Lakers. But hey, Mr. Brown, please feel free to prove me (and a lot of other people) wrong. Why not Adelman? That guy managed to make the Rockets respectable without McGrady or Yao Ming. Oh well.
I don’t understand how Kobe Bryant comes back from twisted ankles and pulls off the stuff he pulls off. Late in the regular season he twisted his ankle pretty badly, yet he came back the next game and was fine. He twists it again the other day and then pulls off a monster dunk like this:
Mav’s resident douchebag Jason Terry blatantly shoves Steve Blake to the ground after a whistle blew and a foul was already called. Big ups to Matt Barnes for not lettings this crap go and sticking up for a teammate. Fisher might have done the same thing if he were on the floor, but probably less blatant, like a hard foul on Terry in the next play. Mavs were getting blown out and Terry was having a terrible shooting night, missing open looks. So basically they couldn’t win straight up and Terry was sucking so he decided to push a point guard. Loser! I never liked this dude, now I hate him even more. Terry was always so cocky for someone in no position to be arrogant. Then he pulls crap like this. Nice job, tough guy. Mavs can expect more beatdowns by the Lakers in the playoffs.
Just like the first round, the East still doesn’t have anything interesting. All the more entertaining games are in the West where the basketball just feels like it’s on a different level. Three of the four series going on are tied up although I wanted both the Lakers and Hornets to win their respective Game 4’s.
