This game. THIS GAME.

The only way this can end is with a BS Manu tying three and the Spurs winning in OT. Didn't think this game half would be as good as Game 6, yet it is.

And that's my last post tonight.

Spurs should have closed this on Game 6.

Manu is so terrible, please retire.

I'm so sorry Duncan Sad

Tough one. That was a great series. Some incredible basketball by both teams. I don't know how the Spurs hung in there against a team that should have beat them in 5 games. But that's a credit to the Spurs toughness and class. This series will be analyzed for years to come, but the difference was the incredible defense by Miami in the final two games. They negated the Spurs 3 point shooting while also containing Tim Duncan to a degree. That was no easy task, and the Heat's defensive play was the ultimate difference. For a team of offensive superstars, I have to tip my hat to Miami's effort on the defensive end. They earned these last two games. And Lebron played like the best player in the league tonight. No doubt about that. So Congrats to the Heat. Now they only have to win 6 or 7 more NBA titles to live up to the hype they created when they manufactured their "dream team."

I wish that Brian Roberts retire as the Orioles 2nd Baseman.  When healthy, he has been nothing but a distraction and a chemistry buster.  The team has played better with journeymen 2nd basemen.

You know I don't get the hate, Habte.

The Spurs played with tremendous heart.

Pops is absolutely world class, and it is amazing how gracious he is.

The Spurs demand so much respect.

What a fantastic organization, nothing but class.

I saw them in person when they came to PNC Park. It was a nice game. Glad the pirates won, but, i like the Dodgers too, so. I cheer for the Pirates and Nationals, but I like all of the NL teams, so.

Used to, eons ago when I lived in L.A.  Not so much now.

One of the great things about baseball is that you can do so many other things at the same time and not really miss much--take a nap, read a book, write a book, and so on ad infinitum.  Grin  After the intensity of the NHL and the SC finals, it'll be nice to wind down and relax a little before football season.

Epic slaughter at Wimbledon today.  Go check out your favorite online sports page for the whole story.

In summary:  after the Nadal upset, Fed also upset in 4 and tons of others losing/withdrawing due to injuries.

Random conspiracy theory idea:  since Djoker has also slipped and fallen in his first round match, maybe people are trying to rig it for an easy win for Murray.

Have been watching the Pirates on and off all season. Often something else will be on tv at 8 or 9, and so I will only watch bits and pieces of a game, but that's fine as I probably couldn't take watching that many entire games anyway. As it so happens they're on right now though, playing the Seattle Rainstorms. Alvarez seems to finally be coming around with the hitting... relatively speaking anyway; I mean, the guy is never gonna be anywhere near .300 for a season, but he may get to .270 at some point in his career. Maybe. Considering his terrible start, if he can get his average that high by the end of this season I will be overjoyed (he's currently at .240, but had a good June with a .313 avg.)

Apparently the Nets are going after Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. If that fails they are going to try to get some 3000 year old mummies from Egypt, who reportedly play just as well, and will be in the league longer.

KG and the Truth huh?

Danny wants to rebuild, and I don't blame Doc for leaving.

Also I became a Celtics fan because I have made Habte my mortal enemy since he likes the Lakers.

So now I have been playing catchup on their history and all that.

It's official: Garnett, Pierce and Terry to go to the Nets.

The Boston Celtics have have finalized a deal to send three of their players to the Brooklyn Nets for a soup and a sandwich.

Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov was immediately reached for comment.

"It was good" he said in a thick accent. "Americans make good sandwiches, I'll give them that much."

Asked what kind of sandwich he got for the three octogenarians, Prokhorov beamed with pride and said "How do you Americans say it? Balogny!"

He was less forthcoming about the type of soup in the deal. "One must be understanding, that this deal cannot technically be done until the NBAs lets us be doing it in a couple weeks. They let me have the sandwich in good faith, because I told them I was hungry, but the soup they are saving until the deal is being official. More details will be shared in time. Please visit my twitter account at Михаил_Прохоров for informations."

Doc Rivers, who was recently traded to the second Los Angeles team, commented: "This is a good deal for everyone involved. The Celtics get three 1st round draft picks and a bunch of players, and the Nets gets some players who are proven leaders."

Asked how many minutes the team could expect to get out of their new players next season, Nets GM Billy King replied: "What's important here is not so much how many minutes we get, but how much leadership these guys bring. They may only play 3 or 4 minutes per game, before they need to be taken out to prevent exhaustion and injury, but in those few minutes they will show the young guys how to play. They will lead by example."

Some were more skeptical. "What these white boys thinking?" said a Brooklyn fan named Jamaal Jenkins living in Brooklyn. "We don't get the Doc but we get all the stiffs? More money than brains if you ask me!"

It remains to be seen how exactly things play out.

Any reason why?

I'd rather live in Boston than Indy, plus the allure of coaching in the NBA plays into it. Also, at the end of the day, it's a job where you make choices for yourself, and coaching in the NBA, and especially the Celtics, is pretty high on a list of accomplishments.

Brad Stevens leaves Butler to coach the Boston Celtics. Wow, I just lost tons of respect for that guy.

Any reason why?

I'd rather live in Boston than Indy, plus the allure of coaching in the NBA plays into it. Also, at the end of the day, it's a job where you make choices for yourself, and coaching in the NBA, and especially the Celtics, is pretty high on a list of accomplishments.

I guess I can't fault him. It's the way of the world. Money determines most people's values. He just seemed like the epitome of a great college coach. He was doing at Butler what Coach K started off doing at Duke. Just disappointed to see him leave for the pros. One of the reasons why I hate pro sports. Just my perspective.
