Did You Really Think Joey Took A Side Door?

Egotistical referee Joey Crawford, letting everyone at Staples Center know the sheriff was in town, shuffles in before Game 2 of the NBA playoffs on April 22. Spurs vs. Clippers. Just another reason we love The Association.

Golden (State) Time Of Day

1975 Golden State Warriors team photo


It’s been 40 years since these misfits captured an NBA title. I remember it. The old age in me is trying to decide if that’s a good thing or bad?
The fact that Charles Barkley is betting against them is reason enough to pick the Warriors, no?

    West 1st Round
    Warriors over Hornets in 5; Rockets over Mavericks in 6; Spurs over Clippers in 6; and Grizzlies over Blazers in 5.

    East 1st Round
    Hawks over Nets in 4; Cavs over Celtics in 6; Bulls over Bucks in 5; and Raptors over Wizards in 7.

Death Takes A Toll In February


    Earl Lloyd got 4-5 paragraphs in the L.A. Times. Disgusting. But those are the times we live in.
    February has been a cruel month when it comes to deaths of icons and sports figures. Unfortunately, we add Anthony Mason to the list.

NBA Playoffs: Shot Of Crown With Dat



We keep going back and forth on our pick to win the NBA title. Guess that means we’re as shaky as a $3 bill. Still, unlike last year, when we were within a Gregg Popovich brain cramp from cashing our little meager ticket in Vegas, we believe we’ve got a winner this time.
Three teams could win it all in our book, but none of them are named Thunder, Clippers, Rockets or Lakers. Oops, sorry Laker fans. What were we thinking?
Anyway, without further adieu.
Eastern Conference
Pacers over Hawks in 6; Bulls over Wizards in 7; Nets over Raptors in 7; and Heat over Bobcats in 5.
Pacers over Bulls in 6 and Heat over Nets in 6.
Heat over Pacers in 7.
Western Conference
Thunder over Grizzlies in 7; Clippers over Warriors in 6; Rockets over Blazers in 6; and Spurs over Mavs in 5.
Clippers over Thunder in 7 and Spurs over Rockets in 6.
Spurs over Clippers in 6.
NBA Finals
Spurs over Heat in 6.

What Are The Odds?

The Associaton tips off Tuesday night with a doubleheader featuring the Bulls-Heat and the Clippers-Lakers. Of course the Heat are favorites (13-5) to capture their 3rd consecutive title.
Best of the others: Thunder 7-1; Clippers 8-1; Bulls and Spurs 10-1; Nets and Rockets 12-1; and Pacers 14-1.
Lakers? 75-1. I think that’s called a rebuilding year.

Is It Us Or Is Our Favorite Center Of Attention Becoming Benoit Benjamin Before Our Eyes?

    Tip of the cap to BustedCoverage.
    Just when we thought Andrew Bynum, hanging out a crap table at the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland, owned by Cavs’ horseshit owner Dan Gilbert, learned how to halfway do his hair before going out now we realize he doesn’t know how to dress either. Po baby.
    And you know a big-time gambler like Bynum must be really making some major league wagers when he can hold all of his chips in one hand.

Gone With The Wind

    Is that you Andrew Bynum?
    The second-guessing, finger-pointing and name-calling began the moment Dwight Howard said he prefers the Houston Rockets. Probably had something to do with all the good BBQ joints in Clutch City. Twenty-six years later, we’re still looking for a great spot in L.A.
    The Lakers and their fans have never been rejected like this. So it isn’t surprising how many fans are taking Howard’s goodbye kiss with some of the saltiest terms imaginable. But the ones hollering “we didn’t need that punk anyway” will get a wake-up call when the NBA season begins. Oh they needed Howard’s punk ass. What’s that? Monta Ellis is the backup plan?
    And what’s with the LeBron James fantasies? Seriously, why would LeBron join the Lakers when he becomes a free agent in 2014?
    I keep hearing Laker fans and some writers here say the Lakers will find a way back in a few years with LeBron running the show. But that ain’t happening. Besides, wouldn’t a spot in the Clippers or the Warriors lineup sound much more appealing right now than the Lakers?
    Carmelo’s coming you say? Good luck with that too.
    My money says the Lakers have a better shot at the lottery.
    The dark period, as some like to call it, between the last Shaq-Kobe championship to the Kobe-Pau titles was only 7 years.
    I got news for Laker fans. This dark period is going to last longer.
    For starters, with Tommy Lasorda as my witness, Jim Buss couldn’t hit water if he sat on the toilet. Mike D’Antoni? Seriously, do you really believe Howard would return with D’Antoni as coach as opposed to Phil Jackson? We said it before the regular season ended there was no way Howard was coming back with D’Antoni as coach. Why would he? How much Kobe factored into Howard’s decision will come out later.
    Little Jimmy probably regrets let his ego get the best of him when he made that call to Phil, telling him they were going in a different direction. Buss didn’t realize where. The Clippers hire Doc Rivers; the Lakers stick with D’Antoni. See how wacked this shit is?
    The Lakers took a hit today. No way around it. I get that Howard isn’t always the brightest bulb in the room. Still…
    Can’t wait to hear from Kobe.

A New Hair Piece Confirms (Again) That Andrew Bynum Is A Serious Piece Of Work

    You know his mamma called. “Boy, don’t you EVER…”
    And we thought he was smoking some good shit in Cali.

‘Where Are Your Balls At?’

Is that you Smush Parker? Or is that Phil Jackson smiling ear to ear? Oh look, there’s Derek Fisher, and imagine how lucky he feels.
With the Thunder lighting up the Lakers in a 116-101 smackdown (guess the Laker fans don’t get tacos?) tonight at Staples and my homies dancing again with glee, we figured it would be a great time to post Kobe’s top 10 quotes of the season. Remember Laker fans when he told you to “shut up?” Me neither.
Maybe it was the timing of Kobe and the wife announcing today they were reconciling. Worst secret in L.A. Or maybe Kobe hasn’t realized all pussy ain’t good pussy? Or maybe he does. Sometimes when you’re poking around and realize how stupid you were not to get a pre-up (“I love my wife too much to get a pre-nup”), you realize how smart Shaq was and how he really wasn’t such a bad guy after all.
